I stayed in this hotel over the weekend. The room is clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. I didn't like the location, as its far from princess street( the street where most of the fashion stores and big brands, cafes and resturants are located).

My boyfriend took me here as a 21st birthday present!! The hotel (Missoni at the time) was really modern and exciting! The room was lovely, was looking out over the royal mile, during the day it was really loud but quietened down on the evening! The room was pretty spacious for our one night stay in a standard room!

I stayed here many times when the hotel was The Missoni and I was interested to see what had changed - the answer was 'not a lot' but it is early days. The staff continue to very attentive and the food is excellent. My room this time was in the old part of the building overlooking the Royal Mile -... More

I was debating whether to make this a 3 or a 4, so call it a 3.5. The location is excellent, less than a block off the Royal Mile. The decor strives to be avant garde; in 15 years people will look back at and think "How could they do that?" The rooms are small with minimal storage. Mirrors are... More

Went through BA Executive Club for a flight/hotel deal and this hotel cam through as the best. Stayed three nights [Room 126] to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was a perfect choice.

This hotel is in a great location but in my opinion is far over priced for what you get. The rooms are very worn and have a used feel to them, and there was this bizarre smell (alot like cat urine) in the bathroom that was so irritating that we had to keep the bathroom door shut the entire stay....

This hotel is in a great location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was excellent with an excellent selection of hot and cold food along with fruit and fresh juices. I had specifically asked for a quiet room but unfortunately it was a room looking out onto the busy Royal Mile. I would stay here again but... More

While we were really looking forward to our stay at the G&V, we ended up feeling that it’s an ok hotel, but very definitely not 5 star. Why? Well, in summary location is excellent, but rooms are average and as such overpriced (small, no bath, insufficient storage for non-hanging clothes, poor soundproofing - oddly for such a new building, soundproofing...

This trendy hotel with its fantastic colours was a great place to stay. Its location is ideal for sightseeing and the range of cocktails in the lobby cocktail bar was exceptional. The food in the Italian restaurant was good quality and not too pricey for a Capital city. The 'Bonnie' room we stayed in was well fitted and the bed... More
