    About

    Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s eclectic Cowgate, STAY Central is surrounding the famous lively Three Sisters bar and courtyard and is short stroll from everywhere, at STAY Central we aim a little bit higher than just providing you with a good night’s sleep. We have 37 fresh and refurbished bedrooms simple arranged by size. They go S (Double), M (Double or Twin), L (Executive Double or Twin) , XL (Quad), XXL(Sixbedded) and then there is the private DORM, a room so awesome it can sleep up to 9 guests. We like to look after you and free Wi-Fi is a must for our guests. Each of our lovely bedrooms have large flat screen TV’s, iPod docks, rain fall style showers to get lathered up in and lots of little extras you won’t expect. We want to be known forevermore as the wee hotel in the middle of Edinburgh that blew your socks off.
