A NEW four-storey aparthotel overlooking the Royal Mile will open for business next month.
The 146-apartment Aparthotels Adagio links the High Street with the Canongate as part of the New Waverley development.
Constructed behind an existing façade of two 1930s tenement buildings, the hotel overlooks a new football pitch-sized public square, which officially opens early next month. The apartments themselves open on December 19.
Jose Gómez, general manager of Aparthotels Adagio, said: “The opening of Adagio Edinburgh Royal Mile is an important milestone in the global development of Adagio.
“With a superb position overlooking both the Royal Mile and the new public square, the aparthotel will be a major visitor draw which will reignite interest in this historic part of the Old Town.
“We are working with New Waverley to ensure our aparthotel reflects the area’s unique link with the history and culture of the Old Town.”
