Very convenient location to Princes St shops, Waverly Train station, Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and buses to Leith, Holyrood and even the Airport. Service by staff and cleanliness was of a high standard. Only thing I wished was the matress seemed rather used and uncomfortable. Nevertheless, a great choice for anyone to stay at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for business or leisure."
The hotel is located in the centre of the city. There are lots of bus stops outside the hotel that we did not actually use because everything is near by.There are shops, convenient stores and lots of places to eat within walking distance. The hotel and the room was clean. We had a very spacious room. The beds were comfortable. There was a safe in the […] room that was quite spacious. There was a kettle in the room you could use to make coffee and tea that was supplied for free. Also, every day we had two bottles of water, complimentary. During our stay the hotel had several weddings which did not bother us at all, we could not hear any noise or music in our room. The hotel was also used for conferences which again did not cause any noise. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Concierges wear kilts!"
Our stay at this hotel was overall quite nice, the staff were professional and friendly, and the hotel had very fancy names and labels on everything. It took us a little while to get there from the train station, but we found the room to be a clean and comfortable eco-conscious environment. We skipped breakfast because it was so expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The George Hotel - Fabulous"
The staff at The George Hotel was more than accommodating and friendly. The room was very clean and spacious. Just footsteps to great shopping, food and Edinburgh's historical attractions. I will definitely will be booking this hotel again when staying in Edinburgh.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was wonderful, the staff were very accomodating and the location was great. My only disappointment was that internet access was not included with the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last minute stay -- lucked out!"
My wife and I were heading into Edinburgh for 3 nights, and it was only on the night before arriving that I realized I only had hotels booked for the last 2 nights. I hastily selected The George for the first night from our hotel in the Lake District, hoping it ended up being at least ok. The George ended up exceeding our expectations: it was a great […] looking hotel in great condition and with a superb location. The neighborhood is replete with a variety of good restaurants and little shops. The front desk staff were courteous and very helpful in suggesting dining options nearby.

"Hotel George in Edinburgh"
A nice bit of luxury at the end of my trip. An easy walk from the train station (uphill but not too bad) and convenient to many pubs and sights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed The George. The location was great! It was located in a very vibrant neighborhood with lots of great shops and restaurants. The hotel was lovely.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is right across from Hard Rock cafe and near the Royal Mile, etc. The rooms were very nice and the staff was extremely helpful in booking cabs, etc. One word of warning to American guests who are not accustomed to carrying their luggage up and down stairs...the elevators do not go to all rooms so some luggage-toting is required. If traveling […] with the elderly or with alot of luggage, make sure to request a room accessible by elevator. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was my second visit to the George and it was just as good. Great location, nice bar, fantastic breakfast and comfortable room.... I will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Mature and comfy."
As usual, the George is a great place to stay for a vacation in Edinburgh. Staff are helpful, friendly and VERY professional. We were in Edinburgh for a show and the George was that touch of luxury that made the weekend just right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good central hotel"
Stayed at the George Hotel for one night the staff there could not have been more friendly and helpful. The hotel is only a short walk from Waverley Station and the bus station in St Andrews Square. This is the only hotel where I have found Classic FM on the in room TV. Food very good. The set up for breakfast was a bit confusing as they have got the […] fruit juice and cereals in one place and the fresh fruit and hot food somewhere else. Will be back at the George when I am next in Edinburgh. If you check in before 15:00 there is a £10.00 surcharge, however the staff are more than willing to look after the luggage until after 15:00 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"What, only limited wifi?"
I thought the days of paying for wifi had gone. You remember - five or six years ago hotels thought they could charge the customer for uploading their latest selfie, or checking out their Twitter account. Well thankfully that sort of behaviour disappeared when free wifi became run of the mill. It wasn't a question of 'have they got wifi?' but 'I need […] to work when I get to the hotel so I'll get on the wifi straight away'. Obviously no-one told The George this. Yes, tucked in one of the nicest streets in Edinburgh, The George still has the cheek to charge you. You get one hour free, but unless you cough up you get logged out - and you can't log in for another three hours before your next 'free' hour. When I raised this with reception staff they admitted it was a regular complaint, so why on earth haven't they done something about it? Will the hotel owners, Principal Hayley, read this and do something about it? Or will they continue to try and squeeze every penny out of their already paying customers. Something tells me it will be the latter. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good quality hotel in the ideal location in Edinburgh. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Edinburgh again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would definitely stay at the hotel again. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is comfortable and conveniently located. The room I had was on the small side and the bathroom was compact but it was well appointed with a lovely bed. I was worried as there is virtually not shielding of sound from the corridor outside, but luckily the […] other guests were reasonably considerate. Next time I will ask for a room with a different layout. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room very dusty!"
Love this hotel - but on this occasion our room needed a clean. Dust on tables and a few hairs in bathroom!! A little disappointed!! Not up to its usual high standard and I have stopped here many times before!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
As usual we had a great stay in our favourite Edinburgh hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient comfortable and reasonable"
I regularly stay at the George and have done for many years. I mourn the change of dining room. The old one was the reason I used to stay there. I do not like the décor or the music in the new one. I also do not like the use of mugs instead of cups and saucers. For these reasons my love of the hotel is declining.This is a shame as I first stayed at […] the hotel in 1960 so you can see I am advanced in years. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a fantastic visit to The George Hotel and edinburgh. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and cleaned daily. We were within walking distance of the shops and pubs and nightlife were closeby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful hotel, outstanding service, very friendly and helpful staff, gorgeous menu and food, cocktails are well mixed and strong! Despite a couple of fire alarm evacuations which turned out to be false, I was happy to know the staff knew exactly what to do incase of an emergency! Very highly recommended!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, but slightly disapointing room; cold bathroom floor, noise from neighbouring room and unsatisfactory Internett connection. Other than that: stylish interior in a beautiful building. Very service-minded staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Weekend break at the George"
Me and my wife stayed at the George hotel for two nights one February weekend. We found it to be an excellent weekend break with good food, clean & tidy rooms and helpful staff, although the staff do sometimes get a little confused as to what's going on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Well located / central to the City"
Very nice hotel. Lacked a little "warmth" from the staff but overall quiet acceptable. No mini bar / fridge in the room, which caused some inconvenience. The location to the city was excellent. Would most probably stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review

We stayed at the George Hotel for a few days over New Year and it was excellent. Location is ideal, central and close to Princes Street allowing easy access to shopping and tourist sites. Room was great with very comfy beds and food in hotel was excellent, both in the main dining room and the Tempus bar. Highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Look No Further"
For a comfortable luxurious and all together wonderful experience right in the heart of probably the most wonderful city in Europe, you should look no further than the George. I am trying to pick a fault because it doesn't seem right to be this positive but i can't. try it for your self Mmmmm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Could be good"
The staff on the door are friendly but most of the reception staff need to brighten up and smile. First room had a noisy vent outside so moved straight away. The frontof house manager who moved us was really friendly. New room was fine. On last night our bathroom stank of cigarette smoke which was unpleasant. Someone somewhere must have been smoking […] and it had got into the extractor fan in our bathroom. We were offered to move but thats an effort when its your last night and have belongings all over the room. One night I wanted a bath and the plug was broken and the bath kept draining. Hotel maintainance fixed it straight away but still its annoying. WiFi was so expensive after your 30 mins free. In Europe cheaper hotels had free WiFi. We were going to stay in premier inn but thought the George would be nicer. Next time ill just go for premier inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
