    From your very first booking with us, one of our 30 Guest Experience Managers is assigned to you. That's the person who will accompany you on all your travels. A weekend getaway to the jagged mountains of Italy, a family holiday to Asia or a recommendation of a new restaurant to try, there is nothing your GEM can't help you with, and over time, your tastes and preferences will become theirs so they can better assist you.

    Benefits that just get better with each reservation

    One of the high points of our partnership with the hotels invited to join our Collection is the exclusive benefits they are willing to offer to our members. And these benefits just get better with each reservation you make! On your first booking with us, this means the best room in the category you choose, and a room upgrade subject to availability.

    Lartisien is a collection of 450 exceptional hotels across the globe, but how do we choose these addresses that we recommend? We do it through an in-depth analysis of every property, and demanding quality controls and evaluations by our founders themselves, Ivan and Rouslan Lartisien, with nothing but excellence in mind. The Collection is also reviewed every year and only the hotels that our members systematically rate ‘Remarkable' are retained.

Arrive at The Balmoral Hotel on any given day and the first thing you’ll notice is its glorious clock tower that’s never quite on time.

This irregularity (or calculated miscalculation as the locals call it) is a historical quirk as legendary as the hotel itself and dates back to 1902 when The Balmoral was built as a grand railway hotel, and its turret clock was set three minutes fast to make...

    The Balmoral in Edinburgh definitely deserves to be one of the top 450 hotels in the world! We stayed there on 26 October for two nights to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. The standard of service was exemplary. We dined in the hotel for the first night. The food and service was top notch. The second night we dined in a neighbouring hotel but sadly the lack of staff training resulted in a disappointing experience because although the food was good it was spoilt by being cold due to the chaotic service. Just shows that the Balmoral, although also subject to the same turmoil of staff shortages like everyone else due to Covid, has ensured that training and high standards are paramount for new staff. Nothing was too much trouble for us to ask from choice of room to late check out. Well done to all at the Balmoral. It is a pleasure to see that this hotel is not using Covid as an excuse for a reduced service! Highly recommend.
