Embrace your wild side

Experience Edinburgh as you never have before with a touch of Africa in the heart of the city.

To celebrate the return of their giraffes, we’ve partnered with Edinburgh Zoo to bring you an immersive hotel room experience. Our exclusive suites pay homage to these majestic creatures with subtle yet stylish touches.

Your habitat

Your uniquely designed suite features all the comfort you expect from Hotel Indigo®, sleeping up to 2 adults and 2 children (under 11 only). With chic wallpaper, luxurious beds, and elegant giraffe decor, you’ll think you’ve stepped into Africa. Young adventurers will delight in their very own teepee bed, enjoying an indoor glamping experience. Then, after a long day exploring, unwind with your spa-inspired rainfall shower.

Did you know?

The number of giraffes in Africa has dropped by almost 30% in the last 3 decades. Edinburgh’s new herd will help raise awareness and funds for their cousins out in the wild!

Meet the giraffes

No stay in our giraffe suite is complete without paying a visit to our friends at Edinburgh Zoo. You can also view things from our tall friends’ perspective on their very own viewing platform.

Gilbert, one of the giraffes in the new herd, is the great-grandchild of a pair from the original herd! The other giraffes are named Gerald, Fennessy, Arrow and Ronnie.
