Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for a two night stay. We flew into Edinburgh and took the newly built tram to princess street. From here it was walking distance to the guest house. We rang the door bell and the lady greeted us, showed us to our room on the 3 rd floor and gave us our keys. She... More

Edinburgh Central Guest House is an old-style B & B just off Princes Street in Edinburgh's New Town - i.e. very central! The owner, Morag, is incredibly friendly and helpful and could not have been more welcoming. Breakfast is continental, but filling and with lots of variety. Morag did us scrambled egg on toast two mornings while we were there.... More

An excellent, central location for accessibility to all Edinburgh's must-see attractions! Hostess very friendly and helpful on arrival. Rooms are well decorated, clean and fresh, with towels and gowns. Wide selection of food available for continental breakfast. The only downfall was the shower on the top floor, which was nothing more than a trickle. Second floor shower was a little... More

I stayed here for a week with 2 friends in an 3 bed room with bathroom. The house feels like home and the service is way more then i expected. Nothing was to much trouble no matter what we asked. Then there is the location, if you are going shopping this is the place to be only a minute or... More

This B&B is a hidden gem in a wonderful city. Just a short, and i mean very short walk to princes street and central to many of the local attractions. About 10 minute walk from bus station and train station. The b&b itself is just lovely! I stayed here in a twin room with my friend and we both felt... More

Stayed here for 2 nights for a weekend break!! The location was absolutely spot on.. Walking distance to everything. Couldn't have asked for better. Our room was huuuuge! Was nice to know we were given the choice of a room too. Was a bit nervous about sharing a bathroom but now probably would do it again. Was fine- didn't even... More
