With the façade of a classic gothic church mixed with glassy modernity, and a sleek, sexy interior full of space and luxury, The Glasshouse is a hotel you’ll want to spend time in, and that you’ll never forget.
The Glasshouse Hotel was built out of Edinburgh's famous old Lady Glenorchy Church, reconstructed in 1846. But it’s gothic façade hides a modern and stylish interior. Every room makes the most of its floor-to-ceiling windows. Front-facing rooms boast dramatic views of Edinburgh City Centre (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), while rear-facing rooms look over historic Calton Hill and offer direct access to the roof garden. Many rooms come with large, personal outdoor space.
At the center of the hotel sits the Snug bar. With a fine fire, and an exclusive selection of some 100 Scotch whiskies, it’s the perfect environment to enjoy a dram or two of Scotland’s national drink, or take a fuller journey through the whisky regions. If that’s not your vibe, how about a cocktail on that roof garden? The hotel’s two acres of private roof terrace are the perfect spot to relax before or after some busy sightseeing. (Did we mention that everything you came to see in Edinburgh is right nearby?)
Historic Edinburgh is home to gorgeous castles, fine art collections, and wonderful outdoor spaces. These streets also inspired the world of Harry Potter—and it shows. All of the city’s top attractions (and J.K. Rowling’s old haunts) are within walking distance from The Glasshouse Hotel.
Mixing the old and the new, the sublime and the ridiculous, Edinburgh's districts capture the city’s venerable past and present-day creativity and diversity. Pop over to Leith for Michelin-starred restaurants such as The Kitchin, and Restaurant Martin Wishart. For the Instagrammers looking for sleek cafes and quirky boutiques, the West End boasts trendy, eminently Scottish, restaurants and shops. Don’t forget about Edinburgh’s stellar theater scene with venues specializing in everything from community shows to traveling blockbuster performances. Catch the Edinburgh International Festival in August.
