Great hotel!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 28, 2006

We loved the Glasshouse in Edinburgh. Location was wonderful. Accomodations clean and classy. Had a gorgeous bathroom...glassed in shower stall...nice toiletries. Bed was very comfy. Flat screen TV on the wall. The rooftop courtyard gave wonderful views of Calton Hill.

Exterior was nifty with its old church facade. The interior is very modern. The doorman is great! Watch out for the breakfast. We only ate there once on the day we were leaving. It was raining and we decided to have it there. It's VERY expensive and not worth it. Otherwise, this was a terrific place to stay.

Got a good deal via Travelocity. Otherwise, I don't think we could afford it.

Unique Quality: Great views from rooftop garden/courtyard.
Neat "honor bar" with wonderful fireplace.
Comfortable, elegant furnishings in our room. Modern amentities. Friendly staff.

Directions: Near Princes St. The Old Town is walkable...I did it every day. Train station back entrance not far away either.
