One of the most exclusive addresses in the Scottish capital, this neoclassical building was once the Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters.

Situated on St. Andrews Square in the heart of the New Town, it has been converted into 50 high-end serviced apartments sleeping between one and six – with breakfast served in the fourth-floor Register Club.

The cutting-edge design incorporates many of the building’s original features, such as the wood panelling in the Director’s Suite bathroom which was upcycled from Westminster Bridge after it was bombed in the Second World War.

Add original Art Deco styling and a bedazzling six-storey atrium topped by a glass dome, and there’s a real sense of glamour.

The old bank vaults house the hotel gym, a branch of Hawksmoor restaurant and Lady Libertine, one of the hippest bars in town, in the basement.

This is one for design-conscious night owls who like everything on their doorstep.
