Hotel Review

This hotel, just a short walk away from the hubbub of Princes Street, is awash with city chic. The floor to ceiling windows give breathtaking panoramic views of the city. In appearance, the "stone church facade harmonising with a modern glass structure" exudes an impression of "glass with class". Whilst there is no restaurant, the roof top terrace "complete with Japanese garden" is a wonderful place to take drinks from the bar or breakfast in the morning. The rooms themselves are decorated with a "rich, spicy palette" - modern and chic, not for the traditional.
