"Not the best"
After paying over $585 per night for three nights in a very, very small room ( #330 ) we were then asked to pay $20 per day for wifi...........crazy. Breakfast was OK but the lady who signed us in was so patronizing she's lucky I was in a good mood. Likewise, in the Caley Bar on the Saturday night the bar tender ( arrogant ) and waiter because they were alone and seemed busy when there was only a dozen people in the bar kept on insisting we took a seat in the lounge when I replied my wife and I wanted to stay at the bar he delayed us longer. Then a Scottish gentlemen arrived he too was told to find a seat to which he replied I have one but its been 20 mins and I need a drink

"Good hotel near the center of Edinburgh"
My family and I stayed at the G&V for our three nights in Scotland. This hotel is fairly new and has been updated. The decor in places is a little funky/glam with bold colors like purple, pink and black but nothing that ever really put me off. Very nice helpful staff on check in and elsewhere. Our room was one of the bigger ones because we got a room with a sleeper sofa for my son. Even so the room was not overly large but what you would expect in the UK. One big plus we really liked was that the room had a mini fridge partially stocked with drinks and a few nibbles which was complimentary! I don't know if this is always the case, but we loved it so I would ask if you book a room. The shower in this bathroom was the best of three hotels I stayed in during my visit to the UK. I looked forward to it at the end of each day. The bed was also quite comfortable. Our stay included a free breakfast which gave you all the continental breakfast choices plus a few more choices with eggs and ham, salmon, etc.

"Comfortable hotel in city centre"
This is a stylish modern hotel conveniently located both for the old city and the new city. The rooms are good size, very comfortable and clean. On the first floor there is an excellent (although very expensive) restaurant and a pleasant bar. The hotel has a policy to charge guests' credit cards on arrival with £300 (even though the room has already been paid for). This amount, intended to secure the hotel against any loss, is refunded after check-out. The policy seems offensive and unnecessary.

"Excellent views in the heart of Edinburgh"
My family rented two rooms for a 3 day stay in Edinburgh. The location is fantastic, right between Old Town and New Town, close to many points of interest, including the Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The courtyard is fantastic with great views of the city. Parties at the courtyard can get a bit loud during the night, but this was minimal. There is an excellent bar/lounge. On our first night, the AC unit was snot working in one of the rooms. It was quite sunny, and as the hotel name implies, the rooms have quite a bit of glass. In fact, without AC, the room was a greenhouse- far too warm. We asked if room could be changed. We received a fan, but no explanation or apology. Sometimes things happen, but it could have been handled much more graciously, particularly at a hotel of this caliber. Eventually we were moved to another room for the remainder of our stay

"Good location and size"
We were given a giant 2 bedroom unit with full kitchen, and 2 bathrooms. Way more than we needed but was very nice to have. The washer/dryer has a huge learning curve, you wouldn't think so, but I ruined many articles of clothing. The location is close enough to walk to highlights, yet far enough to be serene., The man who checked us in was fabulous. Super informative and friendly.

Stay in style at one of the city’s luxury hotels as you explore the famous streets and attractions of the Scottish capital.

    Like Edinburgh born author Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous novel Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the iconic centre of Edinburgh has two distinct sides. The difference here being that both the Old and the New Town are absolutely lovely.

    Old and New
