Edinburgh’s newest aparthotel is inspired by the brilliant Oscar Wilde and will delight those seeking a home from home that’s rich on charm, personality, style, elegance, creativity, quirkiness and originality. This brand-new 128-room aparthotel in the Scottish capital offers a range of design-led studio, one and two-bedroom apartments, all of which deliver the award-winning Staycity blend of home and hotel, but with lashings of Wilde’s signature style.
This means the usual combination of home comforts such as fully equipped kitchens and hotel services such as 24-hour reception, but with the addition of superior interior finishes including natural timber flooring, bespoke joinery, crafts, artwork and soft furnishings, 43-inch smart TVs, appliances from high end brands such as Smeg and Nespresso, as well as luxuriant Hypnos mattresses and Grohe rainfall showers.
Naturally, we’re also taking every measure to protect our team and guests according to WHO and local authority guidelines, so with Staycity, you can always expect the safest of stays in a new era of travel. Read our safeguarding promise, or view our safety video.
Each apartment is carefully curated in the most considered, creative, and playful way that’s full of design flair and earthy flourishes, and with a contemporary, sophisticated aesthetic. Furthermore, with Wilde being proudly Irish-owned, each apartment is a showroom for some of Ireland’s most talented independent businesses, artists, crafters and more, while the walls of communal areas are adorned with contemporary Irish photography sitting alongside locally inspired pieces. But rest assured, the Wilde design is never at the expense of functionality, efficiency and practicality. All needs are met if not exceeded at Wilde. Just in the utmost style!
And as with every Wilde aparthotel, this one is superbly located. Grassmarket lies in the centre of Edinburgh's historic old town, and is one of the city's liveliest and most picturesque areas. Better yet, our prime position at the foot of Edinburgh Castle — which is not just the most popular tourist attraction in Scotland, but one of the most iconic historic sites in Western Europe — affords incredible views of this breath-taking monument. We’re also located within walking distance of the likes of The Real Mary King’s Close, the National Museum of Scotland, the Scott Monument and the Scotch Whiskey Experience. Furthermore, you’re in easy reach of the city’s best places to shop, eat, drink and dance, including the famous Royal Mile with its many pubs and restaurants, as well as Edinburgh’s chief business districts and transport links.
Whether travelling to Edinburgh alone or in company, for business or leisure, for short term or long, there’s no finer or more stylish place to escape, relax, refuel, work and play than Wilde.
Indeed, it was he who said: “Let me be surrounded by luxury, I can do without the necessities!” Luckily for you our lovely guests, Wilde delivers both.
