Super location, super staff. This was our first stay here (had been for cocktails before) and would very much recommend the place. We had a superior room and it was very good. Surprisingly quiet given the location. Great views. Just don't go during the Fringe as it's a bit pricey!

We stayed at the G&V for 3 nights when we went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Its location is perfect for the Fringe as well as Edinburgh Castle. The hotel claims a 5-star rating (and pricing to match) but in reality it wouldn't rate higher than a 3-star IMHO, and then I'm probably being generous. The rooms are nothing special... More

Stayed 2 nights whilst visiting the Fringe Festival. The room was a great size but painted very darkly in a moroccan theme. Only bedside lighting could have done with central light. View over the Royal Mile. The room was very hot , no air conditioning. Ensuite bathroom was small but perfectly formed with a great shower. Black bathrobes and slippers... More

I was here for the weekend recently during the Fringe, and was lucky enough to be in one of the suites. The room was large, with a big living area, and complimentary mini bar although we had to ask a few times for it to be replenished, this wasn't done automatically. Beds were comfortable and the bathroom was huge although... More

Dear BizTravAnd, Thank you for sharing your recent experience at G&V Hotel. I am disappointed to hear that we fell short on some of the aspects of your stay, this certainly isn't the level of service we provide. We are in the process of re-designing many of our bedrooms and public areas and I appreciate your comments on the décor.... More

Great location for the Fringe festival. Staff are very friendly. Beds are comfortable and quiet. Delicious cooked breakfasts. A few minor gripes: it takes a while to figure out how to switch the in-room espresso maker on, and (more worryingly) the water hopper for the machine is mouldy and not particularly clean.

This hotel is all about the location, in the heart of the city & all it has to offer. Room was great size, had excellent views & was spotlessly clean. Everything you would expect from 5 Star. However there were a few draw backs. The room had no iron, no issue I called reception & one was delivered. The TV... More

Stayed here for my wife's birthday and we were going to the late showing of the Tattoo. The hotel is great, really modern with nice decor and the staff were really nice. Not cheap but you expect to pay more during festival time. My only complaint would be the air conditioning, it wasn't very good so it was really warm... More

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...

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.
