Extremely handy location close to the sports club, our venue for an evening reunion. We had the room close to the front door, fascinating lighting and well furnished but guests leaving early meant we were woken by the chatter and then the door being closed. Breakfast was superb and host extremely helpful with printing our aeroplane boarding passes.

The hotel is about 35 minutes from the shopping street, if you don't like walking the busses stop is about to hundred meters away. The rooms was big, service was very good and it was on a quit street. Shower was big. Breakfast was also good and a walk up the little hill to view the city is a must.... More

Thomas and the staff at Ceilidh Donia made us feel very welcome. Maps of the area, suggestions for dining and entertainment, bus schedules, bottled water in the room, wash cloths, computers in the lobby--every amenity I could think of was provided. Breakfast was very good, too. Overall, a wonderful stay.

I visited Edinburgh during Hogmanay in 2010. The Hotel Ceilidh-Donia was so comfortable and welcoming, and the breakfast so delicious, that I am planning my return trip to Edinburgh and am hoping to book a room at this hotel for my second Hogmanay this winter. I had the twin room as I was traveling solo. The stairs are steepish, just... More

My wife and I are retired Baby Boomers who travel far and wide throughout the year.

In our travels over the years, we've... More

Spent three nights at this family- owned & operated hotel. Thomas was very attentive and helpful. In fact, everyone at this little gem of a hotel seemed to enjoy working there and it showed. Would return in a heartbeat! The walk to the Royal Mile was a bit too long for us and we took taxis (£6 -£10) but the... More

The hotel was exactly as expected. It is located in a 19th or early twentieth century flat. Clean rooms and friendly staff. About 1 mile south of the Royal Mile, but a nice walk. Very close to Holyrood Park. Breakfast was good.

This is definitely a family run hotel with children scurrying about the lobby, very homey. The hotel staff was kind and helpful, recommending restaurants and convenient to public transit. The room was clean, but small. We stayed for two nights. Downside, it was very warm in our room so we had to keep the window open and use the provided... More

Beds were so comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and new and provided with everything we needed. The breakfast is good as well, you can order from a menu... More
