We stayed here for a week during the Edinburgh festival. It's a great location for getting into the centre,walking slowly 40mins,25 if you're more athletic! There are trams and buses frequently from the end of the street,and haymarket train station is a 5min walk. The staff are excellent,Jim greeted us and helped with luggage and gave us lots of information... More

I am not sure about this place. The staff was really nice and friendly, the living room is lovely and they provide a coffe machine and a spare computer (plus of course kettle in the bed room and free wifii). The area is very nice, located just few mins from train station and airbus stop. With a nice walk in... More

The staff were helpful, knowledgeable and interested. They gave top travel tips and advised on better running routes than those I had planned. Water of Leith walkway was a great suggestion - thank you. I left a charger in my room and they called me within minutes to let me know. Perfect location for those travelling to other spots. Near...

Finding this hotel is a breeze we got off at Haymarket station and it is a two minute walk. This guesthouse is located on a quiet street that is only 15-20 minute walk from central edinburgh. The service was phenomenal the owners take great care in ensuring that you are completely satisfied! The breakfast was perfect, room was incredibly comfortable,... More

only spent one night in this small cozy family run B&B, but were very happy to stay here. It is conveniently located near the bus stop with easy access both to the centre and to the airport, with frequent bus and tram service. The very centre of the city can be reached in 20-30 minutes of a slow walk as... More

In brief: Good location right near public transport, surprisingly good breakfast, good wifi, average comfort of room, below average bed and bathroom. St. Valery's location, to me, is ideal. It's one tram stop away from Waverley station, which is close to all Edinburgh's attractions, and a quick, easy 4GBP away from the airport (by bus). Close by is a great... More

A very nice and small hotel in walking distance from city centre. Very clean, and beatifully, homely decorated. Staff Jim and Carolyne were friendly, helpful, and made very delicious breakfast for us. it would be a good idea for the manager to change the see-through glassdoor in the shower with another type of glass -door, it felt a bit akward...

This is a very nice bed and breakfast in a very good location in Edinburgh. A short two or three blocks from the Haymarket train station. Within a comfortable 15 minute walk to shopping, restaurants and the Royal Mile. The B&B itself is very comfortable, our room as well as the lobby and eating area were nice and clean. This... More

A few things need to be remembered if you are going to stay here. The place is a very old building and shows it inside the room we stayed in. The upside is, the location... Very convenient to Princes st and the downtown area, all within a 20 minute, easy walk or minutes from the bus and tram terminal. The... More
