Fantastic stay at the G&V for wife's birthday. Staff are brilliant. The guy who valet parks the cars greeted me by name every morning and asked how we were enjoying the stay even though we didn't use the car except to arrive and leave. This is just one example of how they go out of their way make your stay... More

The welcome at this hotel was fantastic and the staff were altogether wonderful and helpful. I loved the quirkiness of the hotel, the bar area, and my bedroom. Wonderful Nespresso machine and never-ending supply of coffee! It's in a great location within easy walk of the castle. I would love to stay again.

Stayed here recently and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff was great throughout our stay, from breakfast to turn-down service, and even stopped by with a dessert and card welcoming us to the hotel for our wedding and honeymoon, which was a wonderful gesture. We liked its modern style but check out the numerous photos on here for yourself.... More

I have so many good things to say about this hotel. First, we were greeted at the door by the friendliest staff who gave us loads of great recommendations for cafés and restaurants and this was quickly followed by our booked afternoon deluxe package of afternoon tea (which was incredible) and a spa treatment. I, myself, am lactose intolerant and... More

Great location, good service and clean. Breakfast was very good and walking distance to most activities and shopping street. Is a good hotel over all. The bar has live music on weekend night and is fun to have a drink there. Modern/funky look but with good service and facilities

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.
