My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and had booked a special B&B rate via Hotel Connexions. We arrived in the morning and asked to leave our luggage there prior to check in. We were able to do 'pre-check in' and our luggage was already in our room on our return later that day. Our room was on... More

Prime location right in the middle of town, staff was beyond kind and helpful, rooms had air which for me is a huge plus. The rooms/ halls are fun with the patterns. Perfect sums it up. Wifi with the room, amazing bathrooms too.

We stayed for one night and I was so sorry not to be staying longer. We were greeted by a kilted doorman who helped with our luggage, then parked the car in the underground car park. Although we arrived at 11am our room was ready so we settled in, and went off to the sporting event we were in Edinburgh... More

Andre Balazs-like ambience in the middle of Old Town right on Royal Mile and down the street from Edinburgh Castle. Slightly past its prime.. But stylish with excellent service none the less. Better quality service than most European/British/Scottish spots. We would come back!

This is a great place to stay if you're visiting Edinburgh and want a central location. Staff are professional and friendly and the concierge service makes booking taxis and restaurants etc., a doddle. We had some problems with the plumbing in our room, however these were dealt with immediately. The duty managers spent time with us to find out what... More

Another wonderful stay at this luxurious boutique hotel in central Edinburgh. The staff are always professional, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The rooms are stylish, well equipped and very comfortable. The breakfast choice is huge and delicious. We didn't dine here this time but have enjoyed great meals in the past. The trendy, spacious bar is a great meeting... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the last 5 years. When it was relatively new as "The Missoni" and more recently under it's new ownership as "The G&V". Over this period I've watched it's slow decline towards the bottom of the league table of upper mid-range hotels in Edinburgh. Give this one a miss and go to The... More

This hotel is in one of the best spots in Edinburgh - the views from all around, inside and out, are spectacular. That alone is good reason to stay here but there are more....

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.
