With its own take on “sophisticatedly tropical” design inspiration, Edinburgh’s Eden Locke mixes fresh, modern interiors with an 18th century façade to create a hotel that’s design-forward with a dash of playfulness.
With its own café, purist bar and 72 apartment-style suites, this New Town boutique hotel is gaining all kinds of design traction for its thoughtful approach to interiors and hospitality.

Hyde & Son Café & Purist Bar
A coffee lounge by day and artisanal focused bar by night, Hyde & Son is a vibrant and welcoming space. Design fanatics will geek out over the gorgeous pastel hues and accent features while small-batch brewing nerds will go wide-eyed over the long list of craft beers, wines and spirits. With an affinity for supporting passionately made products, it’s easy to see why this spot is trending in all the design rags and cocktail guides too.
Eden Locke Apartments
Big windows, beautiful pastel color palettes and cozy elements come together at the Eden Locke Apartments. Set up as efficiency units with kitchens and lounge areas, these suites are much more home-away-from-home than your typical hotel suite. With space to accommodate a friend for afternoon tea or room enough to work remotely, these apartments have the way you live in mind. And keeping up with the design-forward theme, each apartment even has its own setup of cool amenities too.
New Town Heritage
Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, Eden Locke is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site that highlights the juncture of 15th century and 18th century architecture in Old Town and New Town. A fabulous area to wander on foot, the richness of culture here is certainly worth experiencing firsthand.
