Hotel Autograph Collection The Glasshouse

Description

The Glasshouse is a 4 star hotel in Edinburgh that enjoys a location right in the heart of the city centre. Princes Street and many of the other main tourist attractions are within walking distance. This is a luxury boutique hotel that is part of the Eton Collection hotel group. The building itself was once a church but now behind its largely unchanged façade visitors will find 65 individually designed rooms. These rooms are all equipped with all the amenities that one would expect to find in a hotel of this class, including air conditioning, satellite TV and a DVD player but in addition to these standard amenities there are extras like floor to ceiling windows, designer toiletries in the en suite bathroom and Egyptian cotton sheets. The Glasshouse doesn’t have its own restaurant but it has a bar and it is the only hotel in the city centre that has a rooftop garden overlooking the city. There also isn’t a car park available for the guests although arrangements can be made with a nearby car park for an additional fee. It’s location does however ensure that it is very well served by public transport.

from $226 to $428

THE place to stay in Edinburgh
Reviewed June 2012 by nam2505
I had the pleasure of staying at the Glasshouse in December 2009. Frankly I was amazed - the hotel boasts excellent accommodation, peace and tranquility whilst being located in the heart (or as near as possible!) of Edinburgh. The rooms are equipped to a VERY high standard and extremely comfortable. The hotel benefits immensely from being built into the natural landscape such that all the accommodation levels are not only far above the city ...

Royal Mile

Royal Mile

The Royal Mile in Edinburgh is the collective name of the streets that form the main thoroughfare through the city's historic Old Town. As its name suggests The Royal Mile is approximately one mile long (1.6km) and stretches from Holyrood Abbey at the bottom to Edinburgh Castle at the top. Many of the locals refer to the Royal Mile as "High Street" but officially this name only refers to one stretch. The five streets that make up the Royal Mile are Abbey Stand, Canongate, High Street, Lawn Market and Castle Hill. Leading off these main streets there are numerous narrow alleyways. In addition to Edinburgh Castle, which is the most visited tourist attraction in Scotland and the Abbey, the Royal Mile also passes a number of other tourist attractions including Mary King's Close, St Giles Cathedral, the Tolbooth Kirk, Parliament House and several museums. The Royal Mile is fully accessible to visits and there are no admission charges to enter the general area but individual admission fees apply for many of the specific attractions.

The Real Mary King´s Close

The Real Mary King´s Close

The Real Mary King's Close is a series of streets in Edinburgh's Old Town dating back to medieval times. For centuries this area was under cover but following archaeological excavations the area was exposed and in April 2003 these streets were opened up as a tourist attraction. These medieval streets quickly became associated with stories of ghosts and it was claimed that there were many bodies of plague victims that had been walled up and abandoned. There is however no evidence to support these claims but many visitors claim to have experience paranormal activities. The buildings were originally seven storeys high and covered both sides of the street, some of these have been replicated to resemble how the street would have originally looked. Guided tours take place approximately every 20 minutes, daily throughout the year (except Christmas Day). The first tour of the day starts at 10am (9am during August) but closing times vary throughout the year, details can be found on the website. Tours last approximately one hour. Admission prices are: Adult - £10.50 (12 Euros) Children - £6.00 (7 Euros) Concessions - £9.50 (11 Euros)
