Booked this hotel on a special discount price for 2 nights. Loved it the room was great also looking out over George street. You can get some really good deals on this hotel so don't miss out. We did not get a chance to eat here but we certainly enjoyed the cocktails!

The hotel is beautiful and the location is fantastic. Breakfast was nice. All the staff we came across were really friendly and welcoming, so definitely no issues there! The room itself was fine and the bed was comfortable. The amenities were fine as well. With that said, at the price paid for the night, I can't say I was massively... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a Globus tour. Our large room on the 2nd floor was very quiet, large comfortable bed, wifi in the room, television, safe, and nice bathroom amenities. The concierge was very helpful in answering every question thrown at him by our group. The breakfast buffet was above average for the UK, with... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
