A great place to stay in... rooms were very nice, clean and spacious, most importantly they' re very well maintained. The owners Edward and Maria took very good care of us. I would definitely recommend this place to any traveler.

Just returned from a lovely 3 nights at Adria House. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and it felt like home! Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast very relaxing - would recommend the porridge and the cooked breakfast! The accommodation is in a quiet area of the city but only 10 -15 minutes walk to Princes Street. Would definitely like to stay again next time we visit Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Room no 5 is on the second floor with large bathroom. No views due to high window but lovely room.

Thank you both Maria and Edward for a lovely stay. The whole trip with 4 days in your lovely georgian house was a birthday surpricepresent from our children so they were all very anxious for chosen the right both city and accommodation for us. And they really had!! A fantastic city with a fantastic hotel. We are very fond of antigue houses and furnitures so you can imagine Adria house was fabulous for us. A big room, high ceiling ,beautiful window , a view of a small garden ,ensuite bathroom, one double- and one singlebed, 3 armchairs, writersdesk with free WiFi ,TV etc and everything very well maintained and tasteful. After many hours of walking it was lovely to come "home". Normally we would never choose to stay in the hotelroom more than to sleep but at Adria house we even chose to spend some evenings at "home" to enjoy the warm and cosy atmosphere.
We will recommend this hotel to all our friends and relatives.Secure walkingarea all the way to the old city (10 minutes) close to busstops and taxis ,restaurants and shops.

Room Tip: nr 3 on the first floor

I stayed for three nights at the Adria House in the end of November. For those travelling alone and concerned with safety, Adria House is situated in a quiet yet well-lit neighbourhood close to the main attractions in Edinburgh. My room and the bathroom were immaculate, both from a cleanliness perspective and from the the level of detail that Edward and Maria took to preserving the heritage of the building. The breakfasts served were splendid (and a great source of energy to start your long walking day)! I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you don't mind a few cars passing by in the evening, I would recommend getting a room facing...

Adria House is an elegant and comfortable guest house, in a great location - just behind Carlton Hill, and easy walking distance to the Holyrood Palace and Park and the Old Town. It's located on the Royal Terrace, an elegant cobbled street - my sister and I felt like we had stepped into an Austen novel!
Our room was very comfortable, spacious and cleaned every morning. The owners are lovely people - very friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed the cooked breakfast each morning served in the beautiful dining room.
Adria House is also great value for money, given its prime location - accommodation in the heart of Edinburgh seems to be quite expensive. We stayed three nights at Adria House and would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for two nights at the Adria House last week and it was very, very pleasant. The hotel is spotless, very well situated (we walked all over Edinburgh directly from the hotel) and the two hosts, Maria and Edward were perfectly delightful. They helped us with any request and were great fun to chat with about Scotland and Edinburgh. Alas, my only concern was that there was no phone in the room...we did not bring a cellphone from the U.S. -- The hotel is on Royal Terrace...it's a Georgian design house that they have beautifully updated down to the woodwork!
