House of Gods is an acute clash of styles, broken rules and a balance of opposites. We believe beige is blasphemy and more is more. From our rooms to our cocktail bar, the hotel is built to immerse you in a world of unapologetic extravagance.

Stayed in the hotel on Friday night and booked in the bar for half 8, we ended up being really early and the staff were so good at squeezing us in! The menu isn’t huge but a good amount and the cocktails are all themed which is a cool touch! Overall amazing setting and deco with brilliant staff and service

We absolutely loved our stay here, staff & bar staff were very helpful couldn't do enough for us, we stayed in the suite with our own free standing tub was fab! Only minor thing we would say is we could have done with a little table for breakfast and glasses/cups ect but a apart from that couldn't fault it fabulous! We will he bk very soon cannot wait! 😁🥰

Had pre dinner drinks here with a small bar tab to use for staying in the hotel. Lovely staff and surroundings, quirky little bar area. Atmosphere is lacking just due to the no music rule at the moment but that is to be expected. Lovely drinks if on the expensive side

Great, friendly bar staff with so much knowledge about their profession. Happy to explain to us about what goes into the cocktails. Even had Pisco and were able to make Pisco Sour cocktails which I was really surprised about.

The guys asking the cocktails were really good especially the cocktail that came to our room its only his middle name I remember unfortunately (Apex) but he was a fantastic showman, very informative and i loved the new experience of being shown a cocktail mix in my room that was a first for me and loved it xx

We had some cocktails at the bar as we were staying in the hotel. The staff were very friendly and chatty. We loved the look of the bar. It was really unique and different. Great for a special night celebrating our anniversary. The cocktails were amazing and made to a high standard!

Beautiful . Cocktails were out of this world . The hotel is incredible and the level of detail and care taken is something I have never experienced. The staff are super attentive and really personalise your stay . Can't wait to come back when the bars are allowed to play music again as did notice how much this effects the atmosphere, even this was less noticeable here than in other places in the city .

Service was excellent - attentive, friendly and fast - and the cocktails were outstanding. My husband (a martini fan) enjoyed the Nakesd Love so much it was the only drink he drank during our visit and I loved the perfectly balanced espresso martinis. No food - it's a bar, not a restaurant - but a true hidden gem whose opulent surroundings are perfect for an intimate drink or two... 🖤

Great drinks and great friendly and quick service. The place is beautiful inside, adds to the feel and ambience. Obviously a bit quieter than normal just since nowhere is allowed to play music, so has a different feel but not the bars fault! Prices for drinks are brilliant for a central Edinburgh bar. Will be back!

Amazing place. Now planning another trip to stay at the hotel. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. Already recommended to friends. The best espresso martini I’ve had! Thank you for providing an unreal experience, even though we were just there for a few cocktails.

An intimate and lovely bar with fabulous decor and fantastic drinks. We were here for our anniversary and the service was impeccable, quick and friendly but non-intrusive. All of the cocktails from the set menu were delicious and so were the recommendations from the two bar men!

Would highly recommend!

The only, very slight, downside was the lack of the music but that's a COVID guideline so nothing to do with you guys!

Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Cocktails were excellent.
We didn't eat so cant review any food, but this silly review system doesn't have an NA option so...?
Its a very large room which is also a reception for the hotel. As there is no music you are very much aware of how quiet it is and having guests randomly walk in and out is slightly odd. Under normal circumstances Id imagine you wouldn't notice.
