The grand frontage belies its modest size, this hotel is actually mostly located on a single floor of the building. The decor both in the rooms and the communal areas is dark and stylish, with the corridors and guest rooms liberally adorned with local art. From the deeply cosy snug bar (which operates an honesty policy for out of hours... More

Beautiful hotel, in downtown Edinburgh, a real gem conveniently located in walking distance to many sightseeing, shopping and dining choices. Guests enter a welcoming reception area where staff check guests in, then escort them to room. Larger-than-life, lit-from-within opaque glass statues of women, perhaps hotel "muses," stand in the hallways. Our room and bath were well appointed, spacious. comfortable, light,... More

Been here a couple of times now. Great location and a generally excellent hotel. Rooms are good quality and the hotel itself very quiet even given its size and location Great place to stay and would go here yet again !!!

My husband and I stayed at The Glasshouse for the second time at the end of March 2014. The previous time was one and a half years ago when we visited Edinburgh on business. We stayed in the same room both times and loved our experience at the hotel. The room was large and spacious, with lots of natural light... More

The Glasshouse was a fantastic place to stay. It is so central that we could walk everywhere, including to the train station. The staff were all lovely and really smiley, welcoming and knowledgeable about everything we needed to know. The room was clean, well equipped and comfortable and we both slept very well. I would definitely stay there again and... More

A quirky but comfortable hotel with strange layout. First thing to notice is it can be a long walk to the bedrooms - much longer than the front of the building suggests! Once in the room, it's beautifully laid out but again, in a strange way. The bed faces the wall opposite the window rather than the other way around.... More

We loved this modern style hotel. Our room was located so we could walk out and set in the unique, but lovely garden. The lighting and chairs were worth a photo! The garden looks out over the city and castle. We loved this area of the hotel. We have recommended this hotel to friends and they loved it too. It... More

Very convenient to Princes street with its tourist attractions and shopping. Super helpful and friendly people on the front desk. Breakfast buffet just about adequate. Long dark corridors could use some 'brightening-up' It seemed a long convoluted journey to get from the bedroom to reception or the dining room Comfortable bedrooms, but missed a 'face-flannel' in the bathroom The private...

This was the 4th time of staying at the glasshouse and will prob be the last. I feel from our first visit it has gone downhill. As we have always had garden or views to the back of the hotel I asked for a room facing into the street. It was very cold and draughty( hence the convector heater that... More

It was a bit tricky to find as it is tucked between the Omni centre and the theatre and not obvious. Whisked up to a hushed corridor that opened into the 'snug', where you could indeed snuggle in by the fireplace for a drink or a quiet read did not prepare for the entrance to the suite - wow!
