"Mediocre at best"
When we arrived around 5pm, the hotel concierge and reception were pleasant enough. When we got into our room, however, we were alarmed to find that the room looked as if someone else were already staying there. We immediately went downstairs to inform the hotel staff and ask if there were a mistake. They assured us that the previous guest had already […] checked out and that someone would be up to clean the room. When the hotel cleaning staff hadn't shown up by dinnertime (around 7pm), we asked again for them to send someone, but we had to innumerate for them that we needed the previous guest's soiled towels, dirty toothbrush, trash (with literature containing the previous guest's name), and dirty dishes be removed - and that we'd like to have it done before we got back from dinner so that we could shower after a long day of traveling. It was mostly cleaned by then, although the trash was never removed. There was also really loud construction crews outside that woke us by 7am every morning of our stay. The cleanliness issue was really the biggest factor for the low rating, combined with the staff's slow response time. The bright light of the hotel would be its concierge crew - namely Lukaz - he was excellent - very friendly, great restaurant recommendations. Also the location was nice. Don't think I'd stay here again unless the Hotel took more initiative to ensure a pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good, but make sure you get what you paid for"
I booked a business special, and it was a solid stay - clean, convenient, and courteous staff. The special was also great because it included the internet, a breakfast buffett, and a drink voucher. BUT both me and my colleague had to go back and forth with reception a couple of times before they got it straight that we were supposed to get the internet […] (and the voucher) as part of our rate and we should have been given these at check-in. Not a huge deal, but be sure you know what comes with your rate, because you might not get it unless you ask for it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel; great location."
Everything was spectacular; great location, really nice staff, and modern. My room was even pretty roomy, almost to an american hotel standard (I did choose the executive double so that I would be sure I didn't have twin beds). The food was really good as well, and not super expensive for room service (£13 including service charge for french fries, […] a pot of tea, and a cheese tray). The staff did go above and beyond for me, as it was a bit chilly one evening and they had not turned on the central heat yet. So they immediately brought me a space heater (I literally had it 5 minutes after I called the desk). They also helped me with my bags, stored them for me on the day of my departure because my train left late in the day - allowing me to explore the town for one more day. All in all, an exceptional value, and I plan on staying here again on my next trip to Edinburgh. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location and nice old hotel. I didnt have breakfast but the bar dinner was good and reasonably priced.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent breakfast buffet"
I stayed at the hotel for my first two nights as a woman traveling alone in Scotland (from USA). The location is perfect with many friendly restaurants to choose from. The festival was going on and the hotel was perfectly located; close to many events. My room was quiet and clean, the staff was helpful in getting WIFI on my phone and giving me walking […] directions when I needed them. The hotel s an easy walk to the train station and to the Royal Mile. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Efficient, happily helpful"
There are so many rooms and only two elevators. Surprisingly, we did not have to wait very long for an available elevator. The staff greeted us with a chilled glass of "bubbly" and a smile. Wake up calls were timely and the concierge was very efficient and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful.Genuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed our stay at the George. most of the staff were very helpful. Great location for Shopping, eating, and ease of quick access to transportation. A special thanks to Peter at the concierge desk! This young man really made the difference in our stay at the George by making sure that any needs were met, and he was happy to accomodate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staffs are wonderful in so many ways from arrival to check-out and things in between. The location is close to everything. Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Night in Edinburgh"
Was a lovely hotel, excellent location, very close to great dining options, and a brief walk to the Royal Mile. General lobby and public spaces a bit nicer than the rooms, an attribute typical of many European hotels. Good value for the price. I wanted to offer particular praise for the concierge working on Friday evening July 6. He was extraordinarily […] helpful, knowledgeable, and no request to great for him to handle.

"Good location for train travel in Scotland"
I was happy with my stay, although the hotel was very busy with a major convention. I had trouble reaching the front desk several times due to a large number of people checking in and out. Overall, however, I was pleased with the friendly staff and the excellent breakfast each morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely and convenient"
Great place to stay! Walk to the train station, the Royal Mile, the Edinburgh Castle, lots of great food within blocks on Thistle Street and on Rose. Food in hotel is very good too...service could not have been more friendly/helpful, booking online cheaper than at the front desk (we extended our stay.) very clean. Only complaint is wi if is only in […] the lobby. We had an IPad and could not hook up to the cable for laptops in the room...so had to check email etc in lobby.

The room was great the hotel beautiful but the noise in the street outside my window and the wedding celebrations went on past midnight.

"The George Hotel-Edinburgh"
I can't say enough good things about this hotel and the service. They were attentive to every detail and the concierge staff was excellent. The location was great and very close to some fine restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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
Excellent centrally located hotel. Breakfast was a buffet and despite being down half an hour before the end of service, it was fresh and plentiful. Friendly efficient staff in every area, will definitely stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff were great! Very helpfull! The room was very clean and nice, the hotel corridors could do with some updating. The Location is 100% perfect, right in the middle across the road from the dome. Our room view was an lane with bins in it, we were only staying one night so we did not mind, we just closed the blinds.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great stay at The George"
We picked this hotel for it's location. Hotel was lovely, staff were very nice. Check in was flawless. The breakfast was great, huge selection of hot & cold food, fresh & plentiful, staff again very pleasant. Wouldn't hesitate to return to The George.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overnight stay. Very small room but had all you need in it. I liked the decor of the room. The decor of the corridors approaching the rooms is awful. Nothing of interest, and they are long. Blandness personified. The shame of this is it's a lovely old building. The situation and the staff is great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was a bit disappointed. It is a lovely hotel in a great spot, but it is an expensive hotel, so I would expect better facilities. For example only basic TV - and no digital stations. 1 hr free internet? And it was slow. If you want a face washer you have to call the housekeeper? That's a new one! Tea and coffee was the basics - one type of tea and […] instant coffee. I would expect this from a cheaper hotel, but at nearly £600 for 2 nights ..... So I was disappointed Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellant location for us as we wished to visit the galleries and have a look at the german market and the lights being switched on.Also very close to good shops and restaurants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Really well situated - easy walking distance to Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyrood, Princes St (for shopping), the old town, Waverley Railway Station and the bus stop for the airport bus is almost outside the hotel. Hotel bar very lively early evening, which gave a nice atmosphere, but became quiet mid way through the evening. Spacious room with bath […] as well as shower. Breakfast choice very good, staff friendly Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This hotel is very well located, but the worst I have ever stay!!!! durty, the room was horrible, no facilities, I cannot say how much frustrated we were staying in this hotel. If I returned to Edimburg, I will be for sure in other place. tks,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Loved the location of the George Hotel because it is very central, however one downside of this if you are in a room at the front, is the noise from pubs and drunks nearby. Next time we will ask for a room at the back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We have stayed at this hotel before and always been satisfied. This time the room was awful. Window frosted out because of the awful outlook. Smallest most uncomfortable bed and pillows.

"Great location and very good service"
I have stayed at the George hotel before with my wife. The standard and service always matches what I would expect from a 4 star hotel.

"Excellent Location ... Poor Sound Proofing"
The George Hotel is in an excellent location for both sight seeing and public transport. The only downside was sound proofing of the room I was in 407. I could hear all the sounds from the room next door ... laughing, snoring, coughing and the floors in the hallway creak something awful. If those issues were remedied ... I would definitely return. The […] staff was friendly, professional and attentive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Just what I've come to expect!!"
Just a quick overnight before a gig, followed by shopping the next day. Location is perfect for that. Room was good if a little on the small side and the bathroom was definitely bijou however I like to think if I was staying for longer than a night they would have put us in a larger room - I'd certainly have asked for one!! Clean as usual, staff welcoming, […] pleasant and efficient. I'll be back in a few months!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
