York Place is very much in the centre of Edinburgh, being only 2 minutes from George Street, 5 minutes from Princes Street, and more importantly, only 1 minute from all the great bars, restaurants and retailers on Broughton Street. The Playhouse Theatre is just around the corner, as is the Omni Centre, Waverley Station and the St James Shopping Centre. It’s easy to see why so many hotels are popping up in the East End, it has everything. Plus, it’s only a few steps away from the fantastic National Portrait Gallery which has only recently opened after a major refurbishment.
The trend amongst many hotel bookers is to stay at a boutique hotel with its own boutique restaurant. The Place very much meets this demand with its own ultra chic and sleek restaurant, and accompanying champagne bar. The Place is a hotel you should experience as soon as you can.
