Extremely comfortable and high-quality hotel steps from the Royal Mile. Great service, breakfast, free wifi and gym. Expensive but very pleasant stay. Despite being in center of it all, rooms (even on 2nd floor) are quiet and peaceful.

We spent 3 nights at the G&V in the heart of Edinburgh. It is just a short walk to the castle and was on the fringe of the streets where the Summer Festival was in full swing. The hotel was decorated by someone with a very imaginative eye for color and texture. We only ate breakfast in the restaurant. It... More

Booked when under the name of the Missoni but has had a complete revamp and is now a hotel for the extreme artistically bent customer with it's mix of blue green and yellow décor with all black in the bathroom. My one plus point being that it's CLEAN.. and if clean is what you most want then there you go!... More

Great central location. Very friendly helpful staff and good looking! Room a little small especially if you cut the corner off and put in a floor to ceiling window .. Great view. Comfortable bed, night mats a bit lethal on hard flooring. Bit expensive but what do you expect on the royal mile whilst the fringe is on! Great couple... More

My family of four recently stayed the G&V Royal Mile for two nights. Out of the four hotels we stayed at during this trip, this hotel was our favorite. We liked the funky design, the staff was excellent, and we had an amazing view from our rooms. We loved the huge shower, a real plus on a trip with some... More

Stayed here for 5 days during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Room was modern but did lack cupboard space which wasn't an issue for us. Bathroom large with fabulous shower. Location is excellent. We ate in the bar after the Tattoo and there was a delay in bringing our food out. The manager waives the charges due to their kitchen delay.... More

A little bit different; although offering all of the usual facilities of a modern large hotel, added a bit (actually quite a lot) of colour, some well presented and knowledgeable staff (thanks George, liked the kilts) and great attention to detail. Overall, an excellent place to stay and perfectly located for all of your Edinburgh tourist needs. Highly recommended.
