Great location, excellent customer service

Posted 31-Aug-2015
Pros: Staff and location
Cons: AC
Couldn't be better situated to explore Edinburgh. The hotel lobby is beautiful. The roof top bar views amazing. The staff are all (no matter who you come across) friendly, welcoming and helpful and seem to genuinely want you to enjoy your stay and the City. Room was spacious and clean. No AC so was warm and the fan provided in the room stopped working after a few minutes. Considering this is George St on a Saturday night, noise from the street was minimal as we faced a side street. I would definitely recommend and would absolutely stay here again.

Good location but wifi is very dodgy

Posted 18-Aug-2015
Pros: Breakfast room and location
Cons: Wifi
Location: Shopping in Princes Street, seeing shows at the Fringe
I stayed at the hotel during the Fringe and it was a great location for lots of the venues. The breakfast was served in a gorgeous dining room but due to renovations dinner wasn't available in the hotel - not a major problem as lots of nice restaurants nearby but sometimes its nice to eat in hotel if you arrive late at night. Lots of staff on duty in the breakfast but hard to attract their eye to get another cup of tea! The wifi was really difficult to access in my room and I called reception for help several times, none of which worked. I resorted to using the downstairs house computer to check in for my flight but I couldn't print out my boarding pass.

Central Location

Posted 16-Aug-2015
Pros: Location and standard of accommodation
Location: The George is in the centre of Edinburgh and very close to everything
I have stayed at The George several times before. The location is perfect, right in the centre of Edinburgh, and the hotel is of a decent standard. Nice lobby area, rooms are comfortable and of 4 star standard but have a 'traditional' feel in keeping with the age and character of the building. The difference in price for a room with breakfast was £30 which is too much. Albeit breakfast is of a good standard and quality. Reception staff are friendly and welcoming.

Hotel does not honor early check-in offered.

Posted 07-Aug-2015
Pros: Architecture. History.
Cons: training of staff. dont offer what you cant give. no parking offered. deal with parking lot several blocks away. pay for parking if you want to park.
Location: no time to tired.
with flying and waiting for flights we were up for 24 hours by arrival time. knowing this we selected the early check-in option. On arrival at Hotel 10:00 am local time we were told room maybe ready by 12:00 am. but could be as long as 3:00 p.m. but staff said she would have the cleaning staff on it right away. so if you wanted to go for breakfast it should be ready by the time we return. we went out for breakfast be cause staff told us the restaurant was under renovation and was closed. When we returned at 11:30 a.m. we were told the room was still not ready and it could be till 3:00 p.m. we waited in the lobby for another hour until we could not take it any more. we went to a different clerk and told her this was unacceptable as they offered early check-in on their web site, but were not honoring it. she immediately juggled rooms and checked us in. By the way we woke the next morning and asked the closest place to have breakfast, and the clerk directed us to their breakfast restaurant in the hotel ground floor.

Hotel location

Posted 04-Aug-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: More air conditioning in bedrooms
Location: Hotel sits next Rose Street which is full of resturants and traditional ale houses
The George Hotel is in ideal spot in the heart of Edinburgh, easy access to the castle, the many restaurants and shops and the famous Royal Mile

Svært fornøyde jenter!

Posted 03-Aug-2015
Location: Shopping og god mat i alle gater rundt. Castle, Edinburgh dungeons og Undergronds. Det er kort til togstasjonen, og ta gjerne en dagstur til Glasgow
Jeg og en venninne bodde fire netter på dette hotellet, og vi begge er svært fornøyde. Svært hyggelig personal, store og fine rom, herlig seng, og beste av alt - vanvittig sentral beliggenhet! Mat fra forskjellige nasjonaliteter og i ulike prisklasser finner man rett over gata og i svært nær omkrets. Ellers er alle serverdigheter kort gange unna, og shopping er det i selve gata og gata nedenfor. Vi er meget fornøyde og kommer til å anbefale hotellet til alle våre kjente! Det eneste jeg tenker kan forbedres er temperaturen på badet - rommet og spesielt gulvet var kaldt. Dusjen kunne også vært bedre tilpasset slik at dusjhodet kom lenger ut fra veggen, og gjerne bedre spredning. Alt i alt, veldig fornøyde!
