The George Hotel is absolutely well situated within walking distance of Edinburgh's premier tourist attractions. The lobby of the hotel is impressive giving the impression of elegance and class. However, that impression faded during our several night stay. The rooms that were assigned to my wife and I as well as the other couple we were traveling with were small even by European standards. But small is one thing, noisy is quite another. Each night we were treated to a bin bashing which I assume came from the kitchen? On our final night we endured techno music from the hotel ballroom until three AM coming from a private party. The comments regarding the breakfast from other reviewers are spot on. The menu never changes and the kitchen and staff are overwhelmed. Too many people in too small of an area. The hostess station for checking guests in for breakfast is at the top of the stairs. One day the main dining room was full so we were seated in a separate room below those stairs. Imagine navigating full plates of food and drink around people lined up on the stairs trying to be seated going up while we were going down. So, if you are looking for a hotel that is extremely well located this may be a good choice. However, for my money (and it is a considerable amount of money that I spent) I am stretching to give the George three stars. Totally on strength of location.
