Great location, nice staff and good room. We travelled with three kids ( age 8-10 & 13 ) - the room was big with good bathroom too. Good breakfast is included with good choises - we really liked it. We will stay here next time we visit Edinburgh :) -Great city and a lot to do.

Good location just off Princes Street and within reasonable walking distance of the main attractions, although it is a bit up hill to the castle. Frequent buses and the tram if you want to explore a bit further out. An abundance of good restaurants and bars nearby and lots of quality shops. My single bedroom was big enough and very...

The location of the guest house is excellently central considering how reasonably priced our room was; close to Edinburgh Castle and a wide range of lovely restaurants. Everything was clean, staff were very friendly, and we would definitely stay there again!

Brilliant. Incredibly friendly, and professional. The appartment was clean and tidy, plenty bug enough for a family, let alone 2 people. We will certainly be back here! facilities were plentiful if you were wanting to cook for yourselves too. Not a great view on the bottom floor - but we were in appartment 1, and had access to the garden...

Guest house is in an ideal spot. It's close to the shops, trams stops, old Town and castle. Yes as people have previously said there are a lot of stairs to reach some rooms and breakfast but please don't be put off. The rooms have everything you need for your stay. The breakfast is served on 3rd floor a combination...

this hotel was good - reception staff was very friendly and they offered me help with my luggages. very spacious, clean and comfy room. great shower too. the bed can be improved - it gave a bit noise when i turn my body. however as a light sleeper i can still get into sleep in that bed without any problem....

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
