A five-star hotel located at Edinburgh’s confluence of business and leisure.

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.
