This is an excellent 4 Star Hotel in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town. It is also handy for transportation to the Airport by the Edinburgh Tram. A 5 minute walk down Hanover Street to the station on Princes Street. The hotel and the rooms are spotless and everything is well organised by a very efficient staff. Special mention here... More

Lovely guest house. Exceptionally warm welcome! Clean, bright and airy with ample facilities. Well recommended and would use again! Only downside is that breakfast isn't served until 8am - a little late if travelling on business. That said, the host did make sure I had something to eat before my early departure.

Situated so well and is 5 minute walk from princes street where you have everything you'll need to get to grips with Edinburgh. Friendly staff with clean well presented rooms, decent breakfast and all at an affordable price. Easy to access hotel out of hours and was able to leave our luggage there all day after our 10am check out.

The location of the guest house was perfect for us, away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets but near enough so we could walk to restaurants and attractions. We received a very warm welcome each time we met the staff and they were all very pleasant. The room was large and although the bed was quite soft... More

Very nice-looking rooms. However, despite the fancy look, very poor quality beds: the mattress bends down toward the sides to an extent that you will fight not to fall during the night. Free back-ache in the morning. Breakfast was ok, although quite limited and served over maximum 1,5 hours.

A gem of a find. Centrally located. The bedroom would not have been out of place in a 4* hotel. Delicious breakfast. Friendly and efficient young staff. Only drawback is street parking which is limited to 3 hours. The closest carparking is at the King James Shopping Centre about 15 minutes walk away.

As a hospitality provider greeting your visitors and exceeding their expectation is paramount. The welcome and ambiance was what I say......what is on the menu is what you should get. The house cannot be in a better location for exploring Edinburgh. This is the second time I have stayed and for myself and my wife............Job done well........... Contact the Guest... More

We find it hard to square our experiences of the Queens Guest House with the many positive reviews it has received on Trip Advisor. Certainly it is well located for visiting many of Edinburgh's attractions, and the welcome we received when we arrived was indeed friendly, but thereafter it was a series of disappointments. The principal of these was the... More

Stayed for 2 nights and most comfortable , Lovely Scottish breakfast and cooked to perfection. This is a excellent location and within easy walks to the old and new town areas and only 15 mins slow walk to the station. We are planning to return in the summer and will be staying here.

We stayed here for 1 night and it was great. The location was perfect for us, it's about a 20min walk from the botanical gardens, and 15mins from most of the main attractions (the castle, cathedral, Waverley station). The hotel was clean, and the staff were really helpful!! My only small criticism was the breakfast, I'm vegetarian and found the... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood, 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.
