The hotel is well staffed, but there are issues. Our room, was cluttered, stuffy, dark, and some of the equipment did not work. The bed was hard, there is no bath, and the wardrobes are annoyingly eccentric. The bath room is not equipped to a high standard. The staff are good and genuinely try to put things right, but that...

What hotel in this day and age serves unsmoked bacon? This non entity of a food should not exist! Its tasteless and boring.. Also it seems very difficult to cook it crispy bacon over here as well..

Dear Vicky79Glasgow, It is very disappointing to read your review. This is in no way the impression that we wish to leave our guests with, and I just hope that you were able to speak to someone about your experience whilst you were in house.

This hotel is in an ideal location just off the royal mile, great for nearby restaurants and bars. The décor is a little off putting at first but is tastefully done, the rooms are a reasonable size and the bathroom is good. Breakfasts have lots of choice and the quality of food is very good. Has a good cocktail bar... More

We had the chance to stay at G & V Royal Mile Hotel. The accommodations were excellent! The rooms was spacious and decorated in a modern & comfortable way. The bath soaps and shampoo/conditioner was amazing (found a store in the Glasgow mall that sold the same products!). We did had a problem with the air conditioning in the room.... More

Popped in for a few drinks before a show at the Fringe, and was amazed by the hospitality of the place. Despite being busy, Ollie and Savannah the bar staff, made us feel like we were the only clients there with a personalised service carried out with charm. My girlfriend described her ideal cocktail flavours and ollie artfully created a... More

I have stayed here quite a few times on business trips including days when it was the Missoni and probably of a better standard. The hotel has a great position at the top of the Royal Mile. The rooms that face inwards are less noisy than the rooms with a view. The restaurant is always good for breakfast and evening... More

What a pity. This hotel should have it all, but it is missing out in the details. It started with the check in experience. Staff is friendly, but as one is checking in in the bar area it is very noisy. Very noisy! We had a little debate about the room charge (concluded in our favour). Having a conversation with... More

Dear Mr D, Please accept my apologies that you experienced a noisy and, thus, unrelaxing check in on arrival at the hotel. This is certainly not the 1st impression we are wishing to convey on our guests. Bar G&V is on the ground floor, next to reception, and is very popular with guests and locals which means that the noise... More

Here is the rundown - 20 Euro buffet. No. No and no. Bad idea if you got this. Even worse if you had to pay for it. At 9am the buffet was killed. Food was gone. Scraps were left. Also it was surprising to see the manager working the breakfast also - busing table and bringing food. For the three... More

The G & V is located on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, just a short walk to Edinburgh Castle and some great restaurants, shopping and pubs. When you walk into the lobby, we were surprised to see an ultra modern lobby in a neighborhood of 100-300 year old buildings, and many much older. The staff was very helpful and cooperative....

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.
