I've stayed in many hotels in a city I know very well. Absolutely loved the G&V Its a really stylish addition to the Edinburgh hotel and bar scene. An unenviable location, slap bang where any leisure visitor needs to be and super handy for business travellers. My room was superb, with some lovely touches and a great view over Arthur's... More

Brilliant boutique hotel being in an excellent location off the Royal Mile. The bar is ideal for snacks and cocktails. Its well worth the money and we had a meal at Cucina, which is on the first floor. Excellent Italian food with local incidents.

I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the G&V. The location is fantastic, being on the mile, and just a short stroll from most places of interest. Having meticulously debated on where to stay for my trip, I was rather pleased with the overall experience G&V had to offer. Just a couple of niggles though, attention to... More

As a special treat I took my niece who came to visit me to G & V for Afternoon Tea. What a treat it was too, the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and went to a great detail to explaine everything to us. The Afternoon Tea itself was a taste sensation. The decor was lovely and so so clean,... More

This hotel is perfect. We stayed for 2 nights in April & had the best time, excellent location, amazing room including a glorious view, attentive, helpful & polite staff, relaxed atmosphere & lovely breakfast. Can't recommend this hotel enough, wouldn't want to stay anywhere else now.

I cannot rate this Hotel enough for a couples retreat! The hotel is really stylish and decorated beautifully as well as been super clean. The views from the room was amazing and the location could not be any better, it's literally right on the Royal Mile and is a stones throw away from Edinburgh Castle! The breakfast in the morning...

We stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend. We had booked a signature suite, the rooms advertised do look a lot bigger in the photos but was still a reasonable size. The room was very nice.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
