2 Greenside Place Edinburgh EH1 3AA 0131 525 8200
It feels like rock-star territory, and given Edinburgh's prominence on the cultural scene, plus the fact that the massive Playhouse Theatre, a popular venue for touring bands, is right next door, it often is. Behind the well-preserved, if slightly out-of-place 150-year-old facade of Lady Glenorchy Church is a glittering boutique hotel featuring a startling football-pitch-sized roof garden, onto which many of the rooms lead directly through patio doors.
This hotel is wonderful. I took my best friend here for a girly short break to celebrate our 30th birthdays and we had a fantastic time. We were offered a glass of champagne on arrival to help get our weekend started and within half an hour of arriving the hotel had recommended and booked us a great place for dinner. The rooms were quite small but very, very comfortable. Too comfortable, we struggled to get out of bed in the morning! The breakfast was ok, continental but very satisfactory and included hams, cheeses and smoked salmon. The location is very central, ideal for sightseeing and shopping. The decor is very modern and very stylish and the honesty bar is a great bonus. The outside roof garden would be lovely in good weather. We stayed mid week and got quite a good deal online. We had a great time and I would definitely stay here again.
