G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staff were courteous, efficient, and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. The climate control in our room the first night didn't work, and they moved us to another room the second night. My wife was also suffering from a cold, and the staff brought her a toddy while I was out and about.

Very centrally located. Beautiful view and lovely breakfast. Staff quite nice.

I use this Hotel predominately when I visit Edinburgh. I have always received excellent service. The restaurant has never disappointed me with the quality of Food and service. Location is perfect for my needs.

The staff were excellent in every encounter. From check-in to check-out, we were very pleased with the wonderful service and friendliness.

All location and hip decor. Room on 1st floor,view of absolutely nothing. Window treatment was attractive if you care about that. Hot water came and went during morning shower so stunningly gorgeous bathroom lost points. (Hot water fine showering at night.) Couldn't get the high end coffee maker to work. Top marks for the staff: warm, friendly, very professional. Breakfast really excellent with interesting choices. Beds very comfortable. Attractive bathrobes. Location unbeatable. Not sure worth the price so that means it isn't. Stayed again a week later and wrote a separate review from this one in an effort to be fair.

Hard to enjoy cool design or great location when you spend most of your time kneeling in bathroom vomiting. The manager was polite but asked if we were sure it was the hotel food that sickened us. He never called me back to see how we were doing. I was stunned that I had to ask to have the room service charge removed from my bill and to have to ask for a late check out. I expected more solicitous treatment from a 5 star hotel. While the young woman at reception upon checkout was very helpful and seemed to care, I can't help but look back on this booking as a very expensive mistake.

We just loved this hotel! The staff was amazing from the time we check in until the time we left. They had a mini bar with water and soft drinks that were free and the Missoni bath robes are fantastic. The location was very convenient. Would definitely go back.

It was a wonderful experience. The hotel also had a very nice character to it.

We stayed at Hotel Missoni for three nights, and we were honestly blown away. I'm not a fan of the Missoni color/pattern palette, but the hotel is beautifully done, even tasteful (!) and the layout is comfortable but chic. Our room was perfectly sized, with a nice big bathroom and modern fixtures, and the restaurant and bar (we visited both) were also lovely. But the kicker is the *thought* for guests: the staff is lovely, warm and helpful, and there are little touches that make you feel welcome left and right (the minibar is complimentary, they do 2 pieces of laundry/night, again complimentary, they supply significantly more than the minimum toiletries, etc). The location is great too – right off the Royal Mile but on a less-than-touristy side street. In all, we loved staying here. Sure, it's a bit spendy, but if you're looking for a romantic getaway and planning to spend a bit more money, go here and skip the 'old glamour' (which can be a bit stale) of the more established institutions.

Great location, steps from the Royal Mile. Beautiful, modern minimalist design - you're staying in an artistic design statement. However, try to find a drawer that holds more than two pairs of socks, or a place to put your toothbrush! Staff was very helpful and professional and responded quickly to our requests.

Hotel was a nice, trendy hotel as I would have expected from the description. Location is fantastic, right in the heart of the Royal Mile. I'm not sure it's quite a 5-star hotel from my experience but ranks a solid 4+. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and functional although a little small for a 5-star. They do have a few nice perks like free 2 pieces of laundry a day and free soft drinks in the mini-bar (a nice touch I thought) as well as free movies (if you wanted to stay in). But, again location is excellent. Just a short walk up the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle. Lots to do nearby (catch the tour buses about 100 yards up the Royal Mile), plenty of nightlife around and lots of shops, pubs and restaurants all nearby.
