If I didn't live thousands of miles away, visiting the Epicurean bar at the G&V could become habit for me! The last time I was here it was still the Missoni, and I fell in love - I was so disappointed that it was closing, and couldn't imagine how it would re-invent itself from Italian to Scottish style. But it...

Very nice modern hotel in old town. The staff are very friendly, the rooms well decorated and well appointed and the location was easy to see old town, as well as walk down the hill to new town. I recommend buying the rate inclusive of breakfast - very delicious!

Nice modern hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Very convenient location. Great range of servic s and free espresso in the lobby. Highly recommend. No real downsides, keys are old magnetic stripe so keep away from your phone, but if that's the worst problem then they are doing most of it right.

Stayed at the G & V for two nights & it was fabulous, from when we entered the hotel, the staff were more that professional, friendly & so helpful, the hotel itself is vibrant comfortable & very clean & so central, I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone, the bar is lovely & not expensive.

From the moment we walked in to the time we left we were treated by a great staff. The hotel itself was lovely. We were on the 3rd floor and facing the courtyard which was lovely and quiet.

We had a wonderful experience at the G&V Royal Mile. The location is excellent, the hotel comfortable and chic, and the staff amazing. The service simply could not be beat. The spa is small but we each had a head massage before checking out and heading to the airport.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
