I really thought this was a lovely place to stay, on arrival the host was very helpful and welcoming and helped us with anything that we needed. The rooms where clean and basic, which i liked because our trip to Edinburgh was jam packed with exciting things. And coming back to a lovely comfy bed and some good tea was...

The host, Nadia, is really charming and polite. We were there for 3 nights and it was a pleasure. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is a correct continental breakfast. Besides, the place is just 10 minutes in bus from the Royal Mile and the city centre!

Very welcoming and friendly. On a major bus route so buses every 2 minutes and 10 minutes to the city. Parking a bit tight. Or thirty minutes walk to the city. We had one of the units at the back. Shower was a bit temperamental.

Breakfast was...

We arrived and saw immediately by the first appearance that this would be totally different than what was shown online. I can understand that the house is old, but this place needs a makeover really bad. Our 3 person room was awefull, 1 leaning wardrobe 40cm/200cm, 1 half attached light hanging crooked on the ceiling, curteins that were like cardboard....

From this guest house you can reach the city centre by walking (25'), by bus (station in front of the house) or through a cab (the ride is about 6/7£). The interior is spare, even minimalist and it's pretty cold during the night. Our room had the bathroom inside, which was clean. The continental breakfast is good enough. The wifi...

It's a few minutes outside the city centre, but a bus stop is right there. The owner was really nice and helpful. The breakfast was nothing special, still good though. Our room was quite big and the beds were really comfortable. Overall, we had a great stay there.
