Located just a short walk from the town centre and the popular tourist attractions - such as the Castle and the Royal Mile. Easy to get to from the airport (on bus or tram) and very close to Haymarket train station. Very friendly staff. Very clean and tidy. Would happily stay again.

We had a lovely stay here for two nights. The room was beautifully decorated and had all the essentials. Most of the touristy stuff is just a walk away, even in the snow. Would highly recommend staying here.

We recently had a lovely stay in Edinburgh and guest house top marks. The venue is within easy walking distance to Princess street. It spotlesly clean, quiet surroundings and manager Lukasz was very helpful on places to go and eating establishments to visit. He was charming and very friendly too.

We went to the Fringe and Tattoo and had a great time with good food, drink and of course whisky. We stayed here which is very handy for central Edinburgh, bus tram or train and the owners are very friendly and helpful. They advised us how to travel and the rooms were comfortable, spacious and well furnished. The bathroom was... More

Highly recommended! Great Service! Great Location! Its a five-minute walk to the city. It feels like you are in the Center of the City. Its so quiet a night. Gives you a "homey" feel, but with hotel service standards. Very safe and secure. Its like your home away from home. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit,

A very nice and friendly B&B, near the center of the town, maybe 10 minutes walk. We had difficulties identifiying the B&B, as there is no sign on the door, it looks like a private home, which it obviously is. The owner was absent when we stayed there, but there was a very friendly manager. We stayed in a 3... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
