We LOVED this hotel. It was chic and laid back. Beautiful bedroom with a wonderful view over Edinburgh and because we were on the top floor very quiet too. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, a lovely bunch of people. Breakfast was lovely and lots of choice. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

My wife and I stayed at the G & V Hotel for a quick midweek escape and a childless night out. This was sort of a vacation within a vacation while visiting family in the UK. Overall the hotel has a very elegant and understated 5 star feeling about it. The staff are very helpful and professional without being over... More

I have been in the G&V hotel many times, never as a guest unfortunately but to visit the amazing cocktail bar! It has a sophisticated vibe and it's the perfect place for a few drinks with girlfriends or even a romantic date. Recently I was in and had first class service from a bartender named Ollie. He was attentive and... More

We had an absolutely fantastic stay at the G&V over the Fringe weekend. The Front Office Manager, Ann, couldn't do enough to help us. I told her I was planning to propose and she did everything to make it a memorable experience. She kindly gave us an amazing room upgrade with wonderful views of the city. Stylish, amazing decor, great... More

It's not called The Missoni anymore, but the good news is - they still have all the Missoni decor, and - the staff wear the stylish kilts! It's not convenient if you are bringing a car, but that's not the hotel's fault - it as as central as it is possible to be, located beside the Royal Mile.

Dear Kenneth A, Thank you for your review. You are correct; we changed our name to G&V 12 weeks ago but have still retained most of our Missoni design, until our planned refurbishment next year. I am so pleased you had such a successful stay with us in Edinburgh. Please come back and stay soon, you are welcome back any... More

If you want a treat then stay here. The hotel has retained it's colourful Missoni decor which is so different from corporate brown and olive green so often appearing in hotels. It is in a great position so you can nip back with shopping or for a break when visiting the many nearby attractions. We went during the festival which... More

It doesn’t get much better than this – a great hotel in a great location in a great city. The G&V Royal Mile Hotel, formerly the Hotel Missoni, is advantageously situated in the heart of the Scottish capital just off the Royal Mile, close to shopping and many local attractions, and just a few minutes' walk from Edinburgh Castle.

My wife and I stayed here with some friends. for three nights during the Fringe festival. It was our second visit and like the first time we were again very happy.

The G & V Hotel on the Royal Mile is a great location for sightseeing, restaurants and people watching! Although, the front entrance had an odd smell when you first walked in the hotel itself was just that a hotel. Nothing overly amazing or horrible bad! The hallways to the rooms are not very friendly for "American sized luggage" and... More

Extremely comfortable and high-quality hotel steps from the Royal Mile. Great service, breakfast, free wifi and gym. Expensive but very pleasant stay. Despite being in center of it all, rooms (even on 2nd floor) are quiet and peaceful.
