Fodor's Review

Glass walls extend from the 19th-century facade of a former church, foreshadowing the daring interior of one of the city's original boutique hotels. Rooms are decorated in a minimalist style, with soft browns and beiges blending with the wood and marble. The bathrooms were built in Denmark and shipped as intact "pods" that were then fitted into the rooms. A bedside control panel lets you control the drapes, and the flat-screen TV swivels to face the bed or the sitting

area. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the New Town or the rooftop garden in back.

The Glasshouse Review

The Glasshouse is a lovely, modern property centrally located in Edinburgh. While the "executive suite" is still on the small side by American standards, it was sparkling clean and included all conveniences, including coffee, tea, apples, turndown service with chocolates, great pillows and linens, and a very nicely appointed bathroom with a tub and stall shower. Our suite also had a beautiful balcony, and was close to the "Snug" - an inhouse honor

bar and social area with a great fireplace. The staff was exceedlingly helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel!
