We found the Albyn House to be quiet and comfortable, and Lydie to be especially nice and welcoming. The rooms are recently renovated and warmly decorated. The bathroom was relatively large and very clean, with nice linens and a towel warmer. This B&B is so quiet at night it is hard to believe that you are in a larger city....

Loved it! Photo Galleries for B&B websites often over-promise and under-deliver but not so with the Albyn. It is just as beautiful and even more atmospheric in person. It's a lovely house with evocative b/w photos of Paris lining the staircase, recipes and helpful travel tips jotted on mirrors, lovingly chosen fabrics, spotless bathrooms, big rooms. So many friendly touches...

There are so many good things to say about the Albyn Townhouse. Lydie was an incredible host: friendly, funny, and a font of knowledge in terms of what to see and do in Edinburgh.

Everything at the Albyn Townhouse was perfect: the charm, attractiveness, roomy bedroom, fresh linen and towels, delicious breakfasts with attention to dietary needs, the location with several really good restaurants in the area. Lydie is most welcoming and helpful. I highly recommend the Albyn Townhouse.

Great in all respects. You host, Lydie, is friendly, helpful and welcoming. Breakfast awesome. A number of great restaurants within 2-3 blocks. Rooms very comfortable. A bit of a walk to most attractions, but very doable, as we did it without difficulty and got to see and know the town.

Stayed for three nights while attending a family wedding & really enjoyed our stay.

We've been there for 2 days to visit the city at the end of our Scotland trip. We had a great, huge room with a sofa, a very comfortable bed and with even a small table. The shower was very nice and everything was absolutely clean. We loved staying there and it was the best b&b during our whole trip....

The Albyn Townhouse is a well located (20 minutes walk from Princes Street) B&B in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It is well served by local shops and restaurants and is an ideal spot for those who are happy to be a little bit away from the noise and bustle of central Edinburgh.
