We booked 2 double rooms for my husband and I and my mother in law for 2 nights in November. The hotel is very well located, right in the old city and near some lovely shops and the Castle. It's ideal for strolling around the old town. I had not expected the decor to be more Austin Powers than tartan... More

Last minute break during the Christmas markets! We arrived outside the hotel around 12 noon. The hotel has a quirky/modern style decor which we really liked. our room wasn't ready yet but they would take our luggage up to our room for us. We paid the £35 fee for valet parking, which I thought was quite pricey but it is... More

We have just had a wonderful weekend at the G & V hotel in Edinburgh.

This is a beautifully attractive 5 star hotel in the heart of the city - on the Royal Mike in fact. The splendour of the surroundings becomes apparent as soon as you enter the lobby.

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.
