Great stay”

The George hotel delivered on so many fronts! - Great location in the heart of new town but very managable (and enjoyable) walk to old town; we walked everywhere except the Britania yacht. It is also great for access to amazing restaurants and cafes - newly renovated room and bathroom a definite plus - very helpful staff with most of them being very friendly as well. A couple of watchouts for you to consider. None of them were deal breakers for us 1. Rooms in the old building have no AC. We did not mind as it was not needed at night and we were out most of the day but the one day when we went back to the hotel at 3 pm, we could not stay in the room. If you are traveling during a warm season, ask for an airconditioned room. 2. Some of our towels were frayed and one even had a hole. Very clean but lierally showing wear and tare. Would definitely expect more from such a facility. If we are ever in Edinburgh again, would definitely stay there.

A real classy hotel in the heart of Edinburgh”

Wow factor foyer, stylish rooms, extra helpfull staff, great adjoining bar

where to start? what an amazing time spent in the heart of edinburgh for a weekend away together.the staff at "the george" are friendly and attentive yet appear quietly and move swiftly about the daily business of maintaining the high standards of the hotel. our room was in the new part of the hotel which is modern, spacious and nicely decorated. the location of "the george hotel" couldn't be better situated with a vast selection of shopping, dining and stylish bars all within a short walking distance. all in all we have nothing but positive praise for the hotel and will be returning for another stay in the near future.

Very pleasant stay at The George”

Great Location, Friendly + helpful staff, Clean + nice rooms.

The George Hotel had very helpful and courteous staff. There was a staff member continuously at the front door of the hotel and he gave good information and directions on different event. that were in the area. The room was very comfortable and clean. The hotel is centrally located and within a short walk of many shops, restaurants and Edinburgh castle. The only issue we found with the hotel was the wifi - it only worked in the hotel lobby and it wasn't that fast. Overall, I enjoyed my time in The George and if I do visit Edinburgh again I would return there.

Great Edinburgh location”

Location, easy access, comfort

The George is a great Edinburgh location for accessing everything. Since it's two blocks up from Princes Street it was very quiet for a central city hotel. Easy walking to great restaurants and shopping. Day bus pass makes all of Edinburgh easily accessible. Staff very friendly and helpful. Watching Scottish wedding receptions from the lobby a plus.

Exceptional”

Our family ( with 1 daughter ) stayed 4 nights at The Principal of Edinburgh in two rooms with connecting doors (451-452) .When check in, Katrina ( sorry if I spell the name not correct) at the front desk was very sympathetic and attentive. Also the the man who took us to our room which was very helpful. The same man who later always help us during our stay there (sorry I forgot to ask his name). Katrina and this gentleman also very helpful when my sister arrived from The Hague Dutch and we are not in hotel. Bedroom/bathroom clean and nice. Old building but modern renovation. And in every room there is a "Tuck box" that contains snacks, candy, chocolate, coffee and tea which certainly become our daughter favorite. Before Edinburgh, we stayed 7 days in Le Meridien Piccadilly, London. But my daughter said, she is happier at The Principal Edinburgh. And I agree, hotel and service very satisfactory. We will definitely be back again.
