Great location. The landlady is lovely but the rooms and bathrooms are tired and need redecoration etc , the shower i used was powerful and hot. A bit grim but very cheap so you get what you pay for I guess ,a little chilly later at night. Average for the price

Margaret was really nice to was after Booking.com canceled our reservations and we arrived in Edinburgh at night without a place to stay. She found a room for us, gave us great advice of places to eat and was very sweet with everything. The b&b is very nice, with clean rooms and the best showers we've seen on our entire... More

Stayed with my partner for Hogmanay, we booked in Apr last year through a hotel search site, fortunately it allowed us to book for 1 night rather than the minimum stay of 2 or 3 nights that other places were charging due to the New Year. We gave them a call in Oct to confirm our booking and was given... More

We arrived at the B&B and on entering the property you could see that it was not the cleanest of places!! We got shown to our room which was an ensuite with twin beds, the only room with an ensuite all the other rooms had showers etc in a separate room next to them. The room was really dusty and...

I stayed at Sakura in 2005 for 20 days and I have very fond memories of the place and Margaret (owner). We were a group of 6 people and we were accommodated very nicely across different rooms - some of which were ensuite and some had a private bath outside the room. The rooms, corridor and kitchen were all very... More

The place was not clean although the proprietor did say she had not made up the room yet, but this was dirt that was from days... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
