Edinburgh City Centre Map

Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel is an ideal base for exploring the Scottish capital. Whether you’re looking to arrange a private tour of Mary Kings Close, lounge over drinks at Bramble Bar & Lounge on Queen Street, or meet friends for six-course meal at Timberyard, you’ll never be far from where you need to go. Our address is located right by the historic museums and attractions of Old Town; the shops, restaurants, bars, and gardens of New Town; and Waverley, the train station that connects them.

The nearest train station is Edinburgh Waverley Station and is only half a mile, or a 15-minute walk, from the hotel. It has direct service to the London King’s Cross railway station. Getting a taxi from the station takes approximately 5 minutes, and the fare is between £6 and £8.

Street parking is free between 6:30pm – 8.30am every day, and is free all day on Sunday. Outside of these hours there is a maximum parking time of three hours for £4.20 per hour. Limited parking is available for £35 for 24 hours a day.

Edinburgh International Airport is just 7 miles, or 25 minutes via taxi, from The Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel. A typical fare is under £25 (this may be higher on public holidays).

There is regular tram service for £6 for a single trip, or £8.50 return, which takes about 40 minutes and stops at Princes Street West End.
