What a great little find. It's an entire Georgian house and very chic it is too. It's different. You have the run of the place (kitchen inc) and it really works. It's not a hotel (remember that! No RS) and it's def not a b&b - but It genuinely feels like you are staying as a privileged guest of the... More

We loved our stay at One Royal Circus. We had one of the rooms on the top floor with a nice view over the Circus. It was huge and well appointed. Breakfast was great and there were lovely little touches such as Nespresso machines in the rooms and also in the communal areas. It was really like spending the weekend... More

We spent one night in this wonderful Georgian townhouse and didn't want to leave! On entering 'One Royal Circus' you instantly know that you have arrived somewhere super-cool, relaxed and chic.

I have to see I tend to prefer b&b to hotels because they have their own character and uniqueness ... and this place certainly does!!!

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
