Accor has announced it will open an extended stay Adagio aparthotel in Edinburgh in 2017.
The 146-apartment property will be part of the £150 million New Waverly development that is being constructed in the former Caltongate area in the city's historic Old Town.
The four-storey building will have frontages onto both the Royal Mile and the Canongate.
Aparthotels Adagio director Vangelis Porikis said: "The Aparthotel Adagio offers an innovative solution for urban tourism and one we are particularly excited to launch in Edinburgh, a fantastic city of history, culture, business and thriving tourism.
"Aparthotels Adagio represent a travel concept for 'city breakers' that is smart, economical and immersed in the heart of the city."
Accor opened its first UK Adagio property in Liverpool last year (see news, March 2013).
