Good location, close to bus lines, restaurants, shops, etc. Can walk many places, including Edinburgh Castle (but it's uphill). Rooms are up several flights of stairs. Hosts are helpful. We had a large, quiet room in the rear with a spaciouse bathroom and shower. Breakfast is in a restaurant in the basement. Good breakfast buffet, but more of a bar... More

My friend and I arrived early, and the staff let us leave our luggage in the office and offered to drop them off in our room once it was ready. We were also given a map and some suggestions for tours. As for breakfast, they have a deal with Rick's downstairs, for breakfast buffet. We were told we could purchase... More

I booked 3 nights at No 53 with my son in a twin, after touring Scotland and watching the Open we wanted a couple of nights in the city enjoying a beer and watching the end to the golf on TV. No 53 is a splendid Victorian building taking the top 2 floors of 3. We were on the top... More

Located right in the middle of one of Edinburgh's three (or maybe four) busy streets, this is a superb B&B. Close to everything - About a mile from the castle, a mile from the train and bus stations, about 200 yards from major shopping attractions and surrounded by great food options. The rooms are clean and the attached baths are... More

Dave, Tessa, Katy, and Binkey (?) made us feel very welcome at 53 Frederick Street in Edinburgh and provided us with much guidance and information. One must walk up a few steps to reach the rooms, but the convenience of the location, the staff, and the cleanliness make 53 Frederick Street an ideal location for those looking for affordable comfort....

Great place. We stayed a total of four nights, three nights at the beginning of week and one night on our way back through town. Great location in New Town. If you're taking the Airlink bus from the airport it's right around the corner from the stop on George Street. An easy walk to anywhere in New Town. Walking to... More

We arrived on a crisp afternoon, and were greeted by Tessa who upgraded us to the family room. The room was great. Comfortable beds x 3, sofas x2, and enough room to move around. Off to a great start ! The bathroom was recently renovated and quite impressive. It is an old building, so the bathroom was draughty, but there... More

53 Frederick Street is a great place to stay. very friendly staff when needed, but overall very private and the rooms are comfortable and have great views. We were in effect on 5th floor (stairs only), but even the stairs to the B&B were stone and worn, showing how old the building is. I would definitely stay here again and... More

A home from home. All the coz y comforts you need. Clean ans tidy. Three of us stayed in the triple room. It was spacious enough for us to not be under each other's feet. The beds were comfortable even though the quilts could do with being a little bit bigger. The entire suit bathroom was large with a power... More

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
