Edinburgh set to welcome new hotel as part of New Town office transformation plans
Edinburgh could be home to a new hotel after plans emerged to transform an office block in the city’s New Town.
Edinburgh City Council planners are currently considering an application to convert an office block at 11 Stafford Street into new overnight accommodation, from Use Class 4 to Use Class 7.

The property was previously marketed as an “entire townhouse for sale” by agents at Orinsen Commercial Property.
They said the building, which is at the junction of Queensferry Street Lane; “comprises an entire Grade B listed stone and slate townhouse, set over four levels.
“The attractive property retains many of its original quality period features. Additionally, there are two parking spaces to the rear of the building.
“The property benefits from a main entrance and two separate ground floor entrances with potential for securing shared access for multiple tenants.”
The plans, submitted to Edinburgh City Council on behalf of Archibald Mackay Hospitality Limited, do not list an operator for the potential hotel, but include drawings and CGI images of what the conversion will look like.
