Stayed here with my husband and we were really pleased with the location of the hotel - right at the top of the Royal Mile, so within easy reach of the Castle and many restaurants / bars / pubs etc. Staff were friendly and helpful (especially the kilted doormen!) - we were even left a welcome note in our room...

Booked two nights at the hotel months ago when it was Hotel Missoni and have certainly read more mixed reviews since change. Was very pleasantly surprised. Arrived and felt very anxious as no real drive in but our helpful kilted doorman immediately assisted with luggage and took the car away without fuss. At £35 a night the valet parking is... More

Rooms here were big and comfortable, with great service to compliment it. Location on the Royal Mile was the perfect location, in the heart of the city. We were able to walk to many pubs, shops, etc., and we visited the National Museum to see "Dolly", the sheep who was the first closed mammal. We also saw "Greyfriar's Bobby", the... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 days, during our summer trip in August, and my overall impression was positive. The hotel's location is super convenient: a few steps from the castle, in front of royal mile and close enough to the train station and also the new town.I was also happy with our room, good size with fancy amenities,...

Dear Tomas T, Thank you for your review and comments! I agree with you, there really couldn't be a better location to explore the city and especially in August when the festival takes place. I also appreciate your comments regarding breakfast, and I apologise if the service wasn't up to the standards that we always aim to deliver. I hope... More

Hotel boasts 5* classification. My wife and I were looking forward to something special. We normally stay at Radisson Blu on a regular basis but this was full, so we lured to G& V by it's promising claims. Telephoned ahead to ask about parking, they said they had on site basement valet service. On arrival, greeted outside hotel by Kilted... More

I've stayed here several times in the last two months and have had the same great experience each time. Amenities include robes, a waterfall shower and Nespresso coffee machine. The only normal amenity missing is an iron and board, though I suppose that could be requested. The location is in the middle of everything and the staff couldn't be nicer.... More

We stayed here in May, 2014. We splurged on a suite. There were no curtains on the windows. Several of the lights did not work. The doors to the bedroom and bathroom squeaked. To get to the room from the lobby involved several twists and turns and was pretty awkward. We would have been better off in a standard room.... More
