Hotel Overview

Scotland's capital knows how to blend the modern with the medieval, and The Glasshouse is no exception. Opened in June 2003, this hotel is a dramatic addition to Edinburgh's stunning cityscape. Enter the hotel through the historic church facade, as light reflects on the glass walls of this impressive, modern building. Located at the foot of Calton Hill and within easy reach of Princes Street. Guestrooms and suites exude contemporary style, most of them with their own terrace.

The genius of The Glasshouse lies in its architecture. Upon arrival, a two-story wall of aqua hued glass coalesces into the grey stone fa├žade of the 150-year-old Lady of Glenorchy Church - masterfully infusing Gothic magnificence with a sleek, contemporary starkness. The consequences are mesmerizing. Enjoy the allure of this entirely unique Edinburgh boutique hotel. With a mere 65 rooms, encounter a supremely intimate experience ? from our lavender-scented roof garden and sun-splashed patios to cool, shady verandas. Delight in the impeccable approach to service at this intimate Edinburgh luxury hotel, providing the air of an exclusive private club in a historic locale.

Summoning the feel of an ultra modern urban loft, The Glasshouse offers a bold new challenge to the traditional Edinburgh luxury accommodation through an impeccable attention to design, detail, and discretion.

65 guestrooms including 18 suites (most with terrace) overlook the city or the roof garden. Personalized business cards, tea & coffee, mineral water, private CD player, air-conditioning, satellite TV, Egyptian Cotton linen, in-room safe, robe, slippers and luxury toiletries.
