Looking forward to reopening on the 17th of May.
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.

    Just checked out from House of Gods Edinburgh. We had been upgraded to treat me like I am famous as Glasgow wasn’t open in time for our anniversary as planned. Cabin is small. But we knew that from website!! Service was brill. Champagne in our room on arrival with house of gods chocs. Balloons and gold petals a nice touch!! Just send a what’s app when you want your milk and cookies delivered to you room which is a giant cookie with a glass of fruit pastilles and skittles!! £50 cocktail tab was amazing and the cocktail making experience the lady was lovely. Breakfast to your room in the morning was delivered in a closed basket with fresh orange and flasks of tea and coffee!! Would highly recommend as a treat!! Well done House of Gods Edinburgh!!

    Using open table, I was under the impression I had booked dinner and cocktails. We turned up and were seated in the hotel lobby at a tiny table. The only food was pizza served in takeaway pizza boxes. Staff were not particularly helpful and got the first cocktail order wrong. The website makes this looks like a fantastic venue. It’s very much clever photography!! Beyond disappointed!!

    We did not eat so cannot speak to the food. We did have a lovely time in the cocktail lounge where the fantastic service from really knowledgeable and invested staff was very very welcome! They gave really good guidance when we got stuck on what to choose, were attentive but gave us the room to enjoy our drinks. Top marks! The drinks were beautifully crafted, unique, perfectly chilled and quite simply amazing! The music was familiar, funky, and of a volume where we could enjoy our conversation so top marks here too! 10/10 all round!

    A very small cocktail bar. We did not get anything to eat . Service was great , but we were the only customers at the start . The drinks were lovely but having looked at the drinks menu £200 for a bottle of vodka seems extortionate

    Unreal cocktails in a beautiful bar. We booked outside but as it was fairly quiet we got a table inside and the staff were really friendly. You get what you pay for here and although on the expensive side, it’s absolutely worth it.

    Wonderful service; entire staff was great. Not only did we have cocktails here but we stayed at the hotel for two nights. Gock was engaging and personable; friendly and helpful. The playlist was also very good; not too loud or pop - good mix for a unique cocktail experience. Drinks were very good. Had a great time.

    The drinks took 20 mins to arrive even though the bar was empty. The cocktails were very expensive and really nothing special. It was weird that the bouncers were handing out the drinks (no need for a bouncer in the first place).

    A bit confusing when you first go into the hotel whether this is the main bar or not as the reception is hidden in the corner. Could be better set out so that reception is separate. Not much atmosphere in the bar. Website gives the impression it’s a completely different area.

    Loved every second of it! This was our second time visiting and as always the service was immaculate! One of us accidentally got chili flakes in their eye from a drink, and the staff member went their way to ask the hotel would they have eye drops.
