G&V Royal Mile Hotel

1 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH1 12AD, Scotland

The daring—and to some tastes garish—delights to be found inside this übertrendy-design hotel contrast with the Gothic surroundings of the Royal Mile, but the hotel pulls it off by being simultaneously chic and welcoming. Rooms and suites are decently sized and use bold, bright colors, while the restaurant and the hotel's bar are a magnet for the city's bright young things. The in-house spa offers pampering treatments for less than you might expect at such a chichi joint (book an Eve Lom facial for just £50).

PROS

  • perfect location
  • in the thick of the action
  • as far from staid as you can get

CONS

  • a little Austin Powers in places
  • some find it hard to relax in such fashion-conscious surrounds
