MEININGER has entered into a deal that will see property developer S Harrison transform Osborne House, a disused 1970s office building, into the new hotel based on designs prepared by CDA. The hotel will feature a total of 549 beds across the 157 rooms, along with feature a bar and lounge, breakfast room, guest kitchen, and games zone. 

“We are excited to bring the proven and successful MEININGER hybrid hotel concept to Edinburgh, re-entering the United Kingdom and further expanding our presence in Europe. We believe that Edinburgh, with its lively, diverse and unique nature resonates with the MEININGER culture. Edinburgh attracts families, couples, backpackers, school groups, friends and business travellers alike, making the city a perfect fit for our brand.”
