Close proximity to most major bus routes and a fifteen minute walk from Central Edinburgh, this is far enough away from the bustle of the Festival for quiet yet close enough for quick access to sights

Whether with others or staying on your own Emaus is the perfect place to stay on Edinburgh. A warm welcome & feeling of true friendship waits for you. I have always met interesting fellow guests & the hosts are incredibly helpful.

On the other hand, old windows let all the noice throug which means that the traffic caused little distraction. So location is good although couple of kilometers away from city center.

We keep coming back to Emmaus House for the welcome and friendly reception. We enjoy the common table at breakfast and the chance it gives us to hear and share information with other guests and the House community. This is really helpful during the Fringe and Festival. We also like that there is a comfortable lounge so that when we... More

A really good place to find peace in a busy town. The spirituality of the house and the people who are caring for guests prepare are warm-hearted atmosphere. Thank you very much to experience the feeling of being really welcomed.

Emmaus house provided the perfect place to stop after a couple of days at the British open and venturing around in Edinburgh. It is a short pleasant walk to the busy centre and train stations. Wonderful breakfast was provided, both food and conversation. I am not of a religious faith and this was never an issue. I would highly recommend... More
