The only 5-star hotel on the historic Royal Mile in the heart of Edinburgh, the G&V Royal Mile Hotel (formerly Hotel Missoni) is a seriously stylish establishment. Everything here has been designed by local Scottish talent -- even the bespoke kilts worn by the doormen.
Positioned on the corner of George IV Bridge, the property is conveniently located for restaurants and historic attractions, with Edinburgh Castle less than a 5-minute walk away. Princes Street, the main shopping thoroughfare, is a 10-minute walk.
All 136 guest rooms and suites are vibrant and modern. Expect Nespresso machines, free high-speed Wi-Fi and mineral water. Upgrade to a Deluxe Room to have the contents of the mini bar, including beer and wine, thrown in. The sound-proofing is excellent, so there's no issue booking a street-facing room -- ask for one overlooking the Royal Mile or Edinburgh Castle for the best views.
The AA-Rosette Cucina restaurant offers "very fine" classic Italian cooking (The AA Restaurant Guide). The hip Bar G&V is a great spot to start a night out, with a plentiful supply of cocktails, prosecco on tap and contemporary Italian bar food.
For some additional pampering, there's a small-but-sumptuous spa, which offers big-name treatments from Eve Lom and Aromatherapy Associates on the menu.
