The UK's first Indian themed hotel! Opened in 1999, the rooms are in excellent condition. It is a different, and very attractive property for a visit to Edinburgh.

(RT 08/09) ## Location This hotel is situated a short walk from Haymarket station, in the west end of Edinburgh. The airport is less than a 15-minute drive, and Princes Street is less than 5 minutes by taxi. ## Distance 2 kms to city centre 10 kms to the nearest airport (edinburgh airport) 1 km to the nearest station (haymarket) 1 minute walk to the nearest bus stop 2 km to the nearest fair site (edinburgh int'l conf.centre) 5 km to the nearest beach ## Rooms The rooms are all individually designed with furnishings and fabrics from India.
