Hotel Description

We’ve seen fashion hotels before. In some ways the parallel between fashion design and hotel design seems apt — if an outfit is a temporary personality, then a hotel is a temporary lifestyle, and there’s an element of fantasy to both. If there’s anything really unusual about the fashion-forward G&V Royal Mile Hotel, it’s probably the location, in Edinburgh. But just as you never know when you might need, say, a tweed jacket, you never know when you might find yourself in need of a bit of modern style in the Scottish capital.

The building is certainly a bit of a fashion statement, a daring modern work by the Milanese architect Matteo Thun, which can’t help but stand out against the backdrop of the Royal Mile, some of whose buildings date back seven or eight centuries. Inside it’s no less bold: bright colors and eye-popping prints will quickly purge the very idea of tartan from your mind.

For all the emphasis on visual style, the G&V is also exceedingly comfortable, though it stops just short of outright pampering. This is a hotel for people with places to go and things to do. And at the end of the day, the Cucina & Bar makes for a fine place to wind down with a cocktail or an authentic Italian meal.
