Lovely, comfortable, clean and good breakfast ( and I do mean good). Tiny elevator got us to 4th floor. It was a bit noisy at night from traffic but we knew exactly where we wanted to be so no complaints. This West end hotel suited us perfectly but understandably they are making the most of the season. June/July are definitely... More

Management response:

Due to the ongoing tramworks on Shandwick Place, a few streets away from us, there have been one or two bus routes redirected past the Hotel. This has resulted in a slight increase in traffic noise. The situation is temporary and we hope to be back to normal soon. More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this small hotel. Our room was on the 3rd floor facing the city. It was an easy walk to the centre and a quiet location. The room was very adequate and clean. The bathroom was also clean, although a bit awkward. The hot breakfasts were very good and the service friendly. One... More

Positives: Great location, quiet street but only 10 minutes walk from the main attractions. Great full Scottish breakfast. Nice library. Negatives: Lacking any warm feeling or cosiness, more like a Travel Lodge atmosphere. Smallest room I have ever stayed in with a low, sloping ceiling that my partner and I kept banging our heads on. Queen sized bed so my... More

Fantastic views from the room over the World Heritage Site of the New Town. Very central location allows for a walk to Princes Street in around 10 minutes, well placed to access Haymarket station in 5 minutes. Very wide selection at breakfast and incredibly comfortable rooms. Top Marks!

High quality hotel, lovely library and bar to wile away the hours if you have the chance to do so. Fantastic wooden panelling and ceiling in the dining area. Rooms are top quality and the views are some of the best, we had a room on the 4th floor with wonderful vista. Breakfast again very high quality. 100% recommended.

B+B Edinburgh is a great place to stay in a nice neighborhood in Edinburgh. Located on a very pretty street and a short walk to several bus stops, restaurants, pubs, etc. The front desk staff is helpful and the breafast was good. We also enjoyed the "sitting room" bar which we found to be very comforting after a long day... More

If you are bored by chain hotel sameness, then this B&B makes a refreshing and characterful change. We stayed in Room 5 - a family suite with all of the facilities you need for a short break. The view from the three windows was beautiful and the fixtures and fittings were done tastefully and to a good standard and included... More

Just back from a family visit staying at the B+B Edinburgh. What a gem. Beautiful period property tastefully restored with modern facilities. Excellent breakfast, free tea/coffee all day. Would highly recommend for business or pleasure. Absolutely divine beds. We dont usually stay in B& B accommodation on city breaks, preferring to use hotel chains. So glad we made this stay... More

Just returned from a one night stay to celebrate my birthday. Like many others we had purchased a Groupon voucher for £59 which is very cheap for this location. Due to the popularity of the offer no standard rooms were available for our required date so we upgraded to a larger family room for an additional £30. First impressions were... More
