G&V Royal Mile Hotel

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

The bright primary colors, striking stenciled wallpapers, and bold, eclectic furnishings inside this übertrendy design hotel contrast with the Gothic surroundings of the Royal Mile—and yet, somehow, it works. Rooms and suites are a good size–-many have views out over the city; the suites on the fifth floor have particularly inspiring vistas. The restaurant Cucina and cocktail bar Epicurean are a magnet for the city's bright young things. The in-house wellness center offers great gym facilities and pampering spa treatments (and for less than you might expect), while some of the biggest highlights of the Old Town, from Edinburgh Castle to the National Museum, are right outside.

  • perfect location in the heart of the city
