My husband and I stayed at 53 Frederick Street for two nights from 15th July. The B&B is wonderful! It is super clean and the room where we stayed in was really big. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The B&B is in an ideal location and easily accessible from the train station (short walking distance). The atmosphere is...

Recently returned from Edinburgh after a 4 night stay at 53. This was our second stay in the last 12 months and once again it was excellent. Tess and David are helpful and hospitable, the rooms large, clean and comfortable and breakfast in Ricks first class. You will struggle to find a better location for central Edinburgh at a reasonable...

We stayed here for 3 nights and picked it on the basis of the central location. The airport bus stops very close by, it's just off Princes Street and within easy walking distance of the Old Town, shops, restaurants and the city's excellent bus service. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Our room didn't have an en suite but...

Brekky at Rick's downstairs was great and the managers were very helpful with parking issues and using their phone. We were there on the weekend so parked outside on the street. I can imagine parking would be an issue on weekdays, however. Nice big room with high ceilings and a good location from which to explore Edinburgh. Decor a smidge...

This is an excellent choice if you want to stay in the lovely New Town at an affordable rate. Thanks to this being a Georgian building, the rooms are spacious and high-ceilinged. The included breakfast at Rick's next door is very good. Numerous eateries, pubs and shops all within an easy walk. Tess was very helpful.

This was my second time to stay at No53. I stayed here a year ago with a group of friends for a stag and recently with my wife. The property has two parts to it and they do very well to keep the night owls away from couples and families. Both times I found the B&B to be great value,...

This place has a very relaxed laid back approach and if you need any help everyone is friendly and informative enough. The location itself is very central and the bus from the airport shuttle bus drops you right behind their street. The BREAKFAST is served downstairs in the posh boutique style hotel/restaurant which serves up really good quality food, served...

This is a B&B we will return to. At a perfect spot in “Edinburgh new town”, in the middle of shopping and restaurant areas. The building originally from early 19th century is well preserved and nicely taken to the 21st. The top floor stairs is old and torn but so full of charms. Nice rooms in harmony with building, furniture...

My wife and I recently spent two nights here, seasoned travellers, relaxed and tolerant. Location: Great for central Edinburgh - be prepared for all the stairs. Accommodation: Clean, rooms seem to vary, we stayed in a night in 4A which had apparently just been refurbished. One mattress appalling, chair leg fell off, water pressure far too low, traffic noise incessant....

Thank you for your review, I do feel however there are a few points you have missed and haven't mentioned in your review which might explain things a little more clearly. The manageress of 53 Frederick Street deals with up to 30 guests every day and has had numerous glowing reports of her professionalism and helpfulness. When she contacted you...

This B & B is perfectly located, just off Princes Street and handy to all transport and sights etc. However as it is in an old Georgian building, there are no lifts, so it is recommended you "buzz" for assistance with your luggage. On my first visit, I was in a room right at the top of several flights of...

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.
