On arrival the hotel is lovely, the staff were very helpful. We were shown to our room that was little better than a travel lodge but with a much bigger price tag! We asked to be moved which we were which was a relief. Our second room was much bigger but I just didn't get the eclectic mix of decor...

Stated here for an evening to celebrate a special birthday. Great location right off the mile and near some nice restaraunts. The staff were very helpful and the hotel sent us some lovey treats to celebrate events. We ate in the restaraunt and whilst the food was nice it was pretty expensive. Steak was good but probably should include a...

This hotel has a prime location just off Princes Street. It has recently been refurbished and the interior is very cool. We were taken up to the spa area and the staff were extremely friendly and highly personable. The massage was fantastic and we loved chilling in the relaxation room. Afterwards we got prosecco and a fantastic 2 course meal...

Disappointed when calling in for an evening drink recently. When I mentioned that my drink was not what I had asked for I received a vague apology, nobody behind the bar was in the slightest bit interested. Will not be back.

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.

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.
