The unique design of Black Ivy’s Edinburgh Boutique Hotel 

At the Black Ivy Hotel, design and style is what sets us apart from other hotels in Edinburgh. Our boutique hotel boasts a unique design that is both chic and quirky, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for every guest that walks through our doors.  

Our beautiful hotel is housed across three adjacent Victorian townhouses, giving a grand appearance from the outside. However, as soon as you enter, you’ll sense a lively and trendy atmosphere. We’ve adorned our walls with framed photographs of head-scratching art, while the floors are made of shiny American pennies and reclaimed 19th Century wood 

The main public area within our hotel is dominated by a spacious bar and restaurant, outfitted with plush, club-style banquettes where one can enjoy a tasty drink or delicious meal whilst socialising with friends or fellow guests.  

What makes Black Ivy truly stand out, however, is the individualistic nature of each of our rooms. With 22 uniquely designed rooms to choose from, guests are treated to a bespoke experience, with each room sporting its own character and charm. The Victorian style is present across them all, so expect large ceilings, intelligent designs and light and airy spaces.  

Our luxurious but affordable rooms range from our spacious Park View Double and Park View Suite which offer stunning views of Bruntsfield Links, to the more intimate Bespoke Deluxe Double and Twin Rooms. We also offer the smaller-sized Crash Pad, which is perfect for solo travelers or short stays. Each room is immaculately presented and comes with en-suite bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, complimentary tea and coffee services, and White Company toiletries.
