G&V Hotel Edinburgh

While I was in Edinburgh for one night (yes..only one night!) last week, I stayed in the stunning George & Victoria Hotel of Edinburgh, also known as the G&V Royal Mille Hotel. A contemporary and modern stay located on the historic Royal Mille of the Scottish Capital. The room that I got to stay in is the Garden Paradise Suite designed by Hatti Pattisson. I personally just love the oceanic shades of colour, it is definitely one of the most well-decorated hotel I've ever stayed in. 

上個禮拜,在找尋和物色傢俱的急忙步伐中,擠出了點時間,整理了一個晚上的行李,步上火車,離開倫敦。愛丁堡,自從 Cynthia 搬去後,就一直很想去,偏偏每次都陰錯陽差,規劃了好幾次都失敗。這次,沒有規劃,拿定主意後,說走就走。因為只待一個晚上,即便是星期六,訂房也沒有太大的問題。在網路上發現了位於熱鬧的 Royal  Mille 上的 George & Victoria Royal Mille Hotel ,對富有設計感的房間一見傾心,於是決定捨棄平時熟悉的連鎖旅館集團,選擇了這裡。這次住的是頂樓的套房,由藝術家 Hatti Pattison 親自設計,混搭了花卉和海洋色系,不違和,很美。單論設計,絕對是滿分!

The PROs// The staffs there are very friendly and patient. The location is super convenient, most of the landmarks are just in walking distance. Plus, there's a bunch of good restaurant around, so finding a decent dinner place wouldn't be a problem. The room is both very clean and pretty big as well. Most of all, the decoration is seriously to-die-for. The designer really has an extraordinary eye on putting different fabrics together. Amazing view, as it is located in the top floor, you can basically see the entire town, which is breathtaking, since Edinburgh is famous for all the historical buildings and castles. 

優點:服務友善,到英國快一個月了,覺得他們的服務非常真誠,或許不如亞州國家面面俱到,但在談吐間,都能感受到如同朋友般的溫暖交流;旅館的地點也非常好,位於舊城(old town)有名的 Royal Mille 上,餐廳和景點都是走路就能抵達,十分方便。房間的設計和裝飾真的很漂亮,在沙發和寢具上運與了各種不同的布料,再加上有質感的居家擺設,賞心悅目之餘,也有保障品質。另外值得一提的是,我們這間房的 view 很好,客廳和寢室都有整面的落地窗,讓客人一覺醒來就能將愛丁堡那古色古香的美麗建築納入眼簾。

The CONs// To be honest, I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast, in a price like this, I was actually looking forward to something better. But if you're not really into waking up early for the hotel breakfast then you'll portably don't mind. The water in our room was pretty small, so taking a shower was kind of inconvenient. I'm not sure about the other rooms, though. 

缺點:以這個價位來說,早餐的豐富度實在稍嫌單調,讓人有一點失望。不過,附近也有許多道地的蘇格蘭早餐可以選擇,所以我反而更建議到街上找找看,或許能發現驚喜。我們房間的水流量很小,女生長頭髮洗起頭來有點不方便,不過這或許只是當日水壓的問題也不一定。

I'll be moving into my new apartment next week! I'm so excited, a couple of the furniture I've ordered will arrive as well. I know I have probably said it before, but I'm so grateful to have met all these nice people who helped me through all the aspects of my moving process. Now, I'm finally down to hunting for the little decorating homewares. I hope everything turns out just the way I pictured, or better! Follow my daily decor hunts on snapchat-yang.tiffany :) 

下星期就是要搬進公寓的日子了,真的好期待,每天都在倒數。在知道要來倫敦後就在雜誌上找好自己想要的風格,租好房子後,也在電腦中做了幾張不專業的平面圖;跑遍倫敦大小的家飾店就是要找到在可接受的預算中最滿意的傢俱,一一比價比貨,逐一完成。真的很感謝這次碰到的所有好人,像我這樣這禮拜挑貨下禮拜要送的真的是強人所難。特別是買床組的時候,很幸運地遇到了一個好善良的 sales ,本來要等一個月才能送來的床,在他熱心的幾通電話後,下星期三就可以來了(笑)。他還很可愛跟我說「為了讓你第一次搬來倫敦就有好印象,我一定要讓你第一個星期就有床睡,表示我們的歡迎」,太感人了吧!希望家裡的模樣可以跟想像中一樣,或是更好!今天就先這樣吧,我們下回待續!
