From Edinburgh Airport:
There are several regular bus services between Edinburgh airport and the city centre. The bus stands can be found in the front of the terminal building outside the UK arrivals lounge.
The number 100 bus is a regular shuttle which runs between the airport and the city (close to the bus and train stations and the high street.) This service runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every ten minutes during peak hours and every half an hour off-peak. Once you arrive in the city centre, the Regent House Hotel is only 10 minutes by foot.
The tram stops only a minute away from the hotel on it’s way to the Airport.
The building housing the Regent House Hotel was built in 1805 by the architect William Burn who also designed many houses in Forth Street and a number of Georgian and Palladian houses in the countryside.
During the Victorian times it was run as a sea-captains' house while around the 1890s, the tea room was converted into a grocery shop.
