We Say


Contemporary in style, The Glasshouse has successfully combined man-made and natural materials with rich, spicy tones all of which complement the unique glass bathrooms and dramatic floor to ceiling windows, creating a feel of space and light. The Glasshouse is proud to have the only rooftop garden in Edinburgh. Looking towards Calton Hill, this tranquil, open garden offers the best place to relax in the city.

Whilst staying in the hotel, enjoy the latest artwork from local Edinburgh artists in The Gallery, where they will be displaying different works on a regular basis.


Most rooms have private terraces, and create a feeling of both privacy and freedom in a modern, chic setting.


The Glasshouse features 3 state-of-the-art Boardrooms, each named after a famous Scottish writer - The Conan Doyle Room, The Walter Scott Room, and The Louis Stevenson Room. Two syndicate rooms are also available.


The hotel is ideal for social events and weddings, offering a two-acre rooftop garden and two beautiful social rooms- The Snug and The Observatory.


Located at the foot of Calton Hill in the heart of the city centre, The Glasshouse is next door to the Edinburgh Playhouse and just a few steps from Princes Street and Edinburgh Castle. The 65 rooms at The Glasshouse take full advantage of the hotel's ideal location. With floor to ceiling windows, guests are offered the best views of the city and the Firth of Forth or Calton Hill. Despite the central location, you'll feel as though you are sitting on your own private island. The hotel offers guests the extra indulgence of several beautiful suites, each named after a different type of Scotch Whisky.
