Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre

The Glasshouse Hotel sits at the confluence of the main shopping area on Princes Street (a two-minute walk away) and the entertainment district, with the hotel’s neighbours including The Playhouse Theatre (Get tickets here) on one side, and the Vue Cinema at the Omni Centre on the other. We are right in the city centre, making us well placed for guests working in Edinburgh’s financial services sector, as well as tourists interested in the city’s historic attractions, including Edinburgh Castle.


The Glasshouse Hotel is located at 2 Greenside Place, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, EH1 3AA. View us on Google Maps.
