The location of the hotel is perfect, 10 walk from train station and literally round the corner from the castle. Room (128) was a good size, modern and clean, our only gripe was that it lacked a little character. Bed was very comfortable. We ate breakfast in the hotel on the two days we were there and the food was...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 January 2017

We stayed at the G&V in April 2016. The hotel is in an ideal location within minutes of the castle. The main shopping area is probably a good 10-15minute walk but easily duable. The hotel has many positives: It has lovely decor, is modern and clean. The service from all staff was absolutely impeccable - really they are a credit...

I booked G&V for a one night stay in Edinburgh for my partner's birthday. Everything was perfect. The staff contacted me beforehand and asked if there was anything they could do to make the stay special. I booked in for a cocktail masterclass at the hotel bar which was great. The hotel left a dessert and card for my partner...

Having read a lot of good reviews about the hotel me and my husband have booked a delux room, which costs 370 gbp per night. We stayed two nights, so it's not that low the amount. We have seen several pictures on the website which were amazing. But DON'T BE FOOLED as we were! The room given to us was...

Fabulous central location. Welcoming & friendly staff. Loved the added touch of a complimentary Gin & Tonic! We stayed in a twin which was stunning and very comfortable, bathrooms clean with lots of added extras.The bed was comfortable. Despite the central location the rooms were very quiet. Definitely recommend & will stay again.

Stayed for 5 nights recently. The location as others have mentioned is top notch. Very close to the Castle at the top of the Royal Mile. Lots of restaurants nearby. We ate at two of them on George IV Bridge just a few doors down from the hotel. Hotel décor is not my style but we got over it quickly....

We visited the hotel for a 2 night stay and I can honestly say that we were blown away from the moment we arrived. All the staff are friendly and helpful and nothing seemed too much trouble. Loved the decor and the style of the hotel. The location was absolutely spot on- within walking distance to most tourist hotspots and...

I selected the hotel due to the great reviews I had read. When I saw the picture of the hotel room with the castle turret out the window, I thought to myself "That's a great view, but I'll never have THAT room." When I entered my room (deluxe category) I had that same view! I did end up upgrading at...

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.
