I found this hotel very good once I had found it, with no sigh on the road side. Parking is pot look to how close you can park to the hotel, we was lukey with just outside the frunt door. The stairs are quite narrow and steep with no lift either. But a very nice place to stay and great... More

Ceilidh-Donia is an excellent choice for exploring Edinburgh. Easy bus access, plenty of attraction information, comfortable rooms, and a B&B feel made the hotel perfect. We took the connector to Princes Street, jumped on the bus, and in no time were at Ceilidh-Donia. At first had only reserved one night with plans to check out another hotel closer to Old... More

I was hoping to find two big labradors greeting my arrival..but they have left the building! ;) The management changed, but the new staff is very nice. The hotel is near a bus stop that takes you to the city centre bus 30,33, 14..and they are quite frequent! Attention: you must have exact change for the bus! I suggest you... More

The hotel is clean. But the beds were awful we could feel the structure of the bed beneath the mattress. Some services which were annonce were not available as the early breakfast (before 7h30). When you're in town for work, and you pay and need this service it is a bit disappointed. The bathroom was pretty clean, build all in... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on Sat 10th Jan. We were pleasantly surprised with the hotel, it was very clean and well kept. Our room was lovely and spacious and very cozy. We arrived early and were allowed to check in which was very much appreciated. The breakfast next morning was very tasty and the menu... More

This is our first stop in our two week trip in Scotland! We arrived at 09:30am in the morning when the host greeted us and told us we can leave our luggages while we explore the city. She gave us tips on the bus line, what to checkout and what to be aware off since we were there during the... More

We spent two nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was plenty big enough for the two of us, and the tall ceilings made it feel much more spacious. The decor was very well done - lots of lights and dimmers gave it a special feel. The location is good: our room faced the street, but it was... More

We stayed here at the end of October, managing to hit a cold & wet patch of weather. The hotel was warm enough, so that was good. We stayed in the triple room, which was good value for money. However, it's at the top of the house and the higher flight of stairs is steep, narrow and slopes outwards, contributing... More

Hi there, Thanks for taking time to leave us your thoughts. First of all, I would like to clarify that we have responded to your complaints. As for the blinking ceiling light, I tried a new light bulb but it didn't work so I called the electrician. However, the electrician only managed to come in the following week. And for... More

This place is not exactly in the immediacy of the city centre, but well situated considering the bus connections. It is also not too expensive to take a taxi, and me and my friend also tested the journey by foot with 10kg backpacks, so it is not impossible to walk. Has some nice restaurants and simple pubs near by. The... More
