We recently stayed at 20 Albany Street for 3 nights and were really happy with our choice. The B&B is located at the east end of the 18th century New Town with its elegant terraced houses and was until recently a private home. It's ideal for walking to Princes Street and exploring any area nearby. Denise, the owner, is a... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 2 nights at this fantastic B&B recently. It was our first trip to beautiful Edinburgh, and we weren't disappointed by the city or our accommodation. 20 Albany Street is situated in the New town, less than 5mins from Princes Street, but feels like a world away as it's so quiet and...

I go away with work a lot so am used to staying in boring chain hotels with no soul. This place is everything but!! We were made to feel welcome straight away with adequate parking which is no hassle and coffee, freshly made lemon cake and a dram of whiskey on arrival. The Robert suite was MASSIVE and the bed...

Our first time in Edinburgh and we could not have asked for more from our accommodation than what we received at 20 Albany Street. The room was stunning & breakfast was great each morning. Our host, Denise, was helpful throughout our stay, from accommodating special breakfast requests to suggesting the best local running routes. We found the sheet of recommended... More

This has to be one of the best places to stay in Edinburgh. A friendly welcome awaits those lucky enough to book one of the three suites in this fabulous Georgian townhouse. The rooms are superb - spacious and decorated to a high standard; beds very comfortable and tea and coffee facilities in the room; glam toiletries and bathrobes are... More

Just up for a brief visit but was over the moon with my stay at the beautifully located and the wonderfully cared for 20 Albany Street. My host, Paddy was delightful (quite a character) and his breakfasts are to die for. I can't recommend the place highly enough and will certainly be returning in the future.

We recently stayed for 4 nights in this lovely B&B so that we could visit our daughter and celebrate her birthday. Our host, Denise, gave us a warm welcome when we arrived with a pot of tea, a plate of delicious lemon cake and a warming glass of malt whisky! Our room was exquisite with a large comfortable bed, complimentary... More

Amazing place to stay whilst in Edinburgh. Beautifully appointed rooms, ample comfortable shared spaces and full, delicious breakfast with pretty much whatever you like! I highly recommend the friendly, sumptuous B&B here within easy walking distance of the tram and Central Edinburgh. A much better choice than staying at a city centre hotel. Would highly recommend it!

When we arrived early in the morning knowing the room would not yet be ready but planning to drop our bags Denise so kindly offered us breakfast. It was heavenly to be treated so well after an overnight flight. That was only the beginning....a great location, comfortable room and bathroom, recommendations for restaurants and things to do plus the added... More
