Twelve Picardy Place

About Us

We are centrally located at the heart of Scotland’s capital, close to all major transport links. Twelve is situated right next to York Place, the last tram stop on a 40-minute journey from the airport. We are just minutes away from St James’ Bus Station and Waverley Railway Station, and a 20-30 minute taxi journey from Edinburgh Airport.

The hotel’s position on Picardy Place is ideal for both business and leisure travellers, and it’s central location makes it ideal for our guests to explore the city on foot. A short walk will bring you to Edinburgh’s buzzing centre point, Princes Street, and Calton Hill is also close by, where you can experience some of the best views in Edinburgh by day or night. The Playhouse Theatre located across the street, offers an array of touring musicals, comedy shows and concerts. Excellent shopping is available nearby in George Street, Harvey Nichols on St Andrews Square and Multrees Walk which is home to luxury fashion brands.
