Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


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.

Enjoyed Most: The colours and quality of the actual hotel also the location on the royal mile was a spectacular. The breakfast was a delight.
Other Comments: Two point that I would like to mention, it was a treat for my mothers birthday she is 80, on booking i asked for twin rooms with the upgrade that did not happen. Second point we went out for dinner and on return the penthouse apartment was dark there were no blinds up and with a inset double window we saw no evidence of shutters. We were both awake from 3 a.m. the lad that showed us our room did not mention windows shutters (apparently this was his first day) we spent a very tired day in Edinburgh as our train was not til 6 pm!! Felt they were rather cavalier when I mentioned this on checking out.
