The George is a charming older hotel on George street, beautifully located near pubs, restaurants, shopping, and sites. We stayed here as part of a tour group. Thus, it was by sheer luck (or some good juju from our Scottish ancestors) that we ended up on the 7th floor in a huge room with a panoramic view of the sea.... More

The rooms are good, neat and quiet. Reception is OK. Breakfast is excellent. A drawback is the limited free WiFi, just one hour every four hours. Parking is in a public garage nearby with a discount. As it is situated in the center of town, one can reach all major attractions and shops by foot.

This was our second stay at the George as the location is great for Princes Street and 5 minutes from the railway station. We booked a double deluxe with seaview and got exactly that. The room was large, the bed was large, the view was great and the bathroom was tiny!! You had to stand sideways to shut the bathroom... More

Stayed for three nights while we visited Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival. First night we found we the bed a bit soft and not to our liking. Room also a bit cluttered with large pieces of furniture. Ask for a change and this is where the customer service kicked in. We did pay , not very much, for an upgrade... More

Wanted a city escape and this centrally located hotel provided this. Though quite expensive, as a lone traveler, felt safe in every way. My room had a view overlooking the rooftops towards the hills. The service was excellent with a breakfast that had great variety. Did not have my laptop with me so took advantage of the always- available computer... More

I stayed here for one night recently on a business trip, and was very impressed with this as a city centre hotel. The room was huge, and the bed probably the biggest I've ever seen! (Super comfy too). There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room which always gets brownie points from me, and the staff seemed very... More
