Beautiful hotel in the shopping and theatre district . Rooms are luxury as it gets especially if you book one of their unique suits . They have this great service where they invite you to taste some of the best whiskies they serve. Highly recommended

Wow. This hotel is absolutely amazing. Super unique - its built around the fascade of an old church, but with a modern glass roof rising above the carved stone. It's absolutely luxurious down to the small details. The rooms are modern and elegant, with great lighting and lots of space. The bed in my room was so comfortable I would have been happy to stay in the room all day. They also have a really cool lobby area on the 3rd floor where you can taste one of hundreds of different whiskeys and sit around a gas fire. They also have a big rooftop park, which I unfortunately didn't get to explore because of the rain. Very central location. Highly recommended.

On entering The Glasshouse, you become immediately aware that this is no ordinary hotel building. In fact the stunning facade once belonged to the 150 yr old Glenorchy Church. Whilst the remainder of the building is an airy, light-filled contemporary twist on Gothic, it soon becomes apparent that all the action takes place at the back of the building. This is where you get to take in the simply stunning views of Calton Hill, Edinburgh's famous national heritage sight.

I recommend you choose a room facing onto that view.

There's also a choice of rooms with patios and verandas which open onto the luscious lavender-scented roof garden. When the sun is shining, it's hard to remember you are in the chilly climes of a Northern city instead Southern Spain springs to mind. If you really feel like spoiling yourself, book a suite with its own sauna and jacuzzi.

An ideal venue for weddings and other special celebrations, (the hotel is licensed as a Civil Wedding Venue,) The Glasshouse is also conveniently located right next door to the Edinburgh Playhouse and just down the road from Princes Street.

In the 65 rooms, there's everything you would expect from an exclusive hotel: from complimentary WiFi for one hour, to Frette Egyptian cotton bedlinen and Highland Aromatics Toiletries. There's even a complimentary shoe shine!

For those who love their interiors light, bright and modern accompanied by a staff who are discreet and polished, The Glasshouse is the place to be.
