We stayed one night at Kenneth MacKenzie hotel for B&B. Check in and check out could not have been easier and staff really helpful. Bedroom basic but had everything you would want. Bed very comfy and breakfast great, with staff willing to please. Thank you!

I stayed here before about 3 years ago and loved it so booked again for a two night stay hoping it would be just as good, I wasn't disappointed. The staff are all very pleasant and friendly, the rooms are cosy and comfy bed. If there was one slight negative it was that some of the cooked breakfast was a... More

If the website had indicated that this was formerly student accommodation then we wouldn't have touched it with a barge pole. The rooms are poky, the furniture is ancient and the mattress in our room would have broken my back. It might be cheap but our double room looked nothing like the photo on the website Didn't even bother to... More

Although the hotel is quite basic it is in a very good location just a short stroll from the main attractions, castle, dungeons pubs etc. I have no complaints about my stay, the bed was so comfortable and bathroom was spotless. Great value for money, I will definitely stay here again...

The rooms are old student accommodation so they are quite basic and a little cramped. But if, like me, you are happy with somewhere to sleep at night and spend very little other time in the room, then the location and price puts this place streets ahead of much of the competition. It is very central and just a few... More

Stayed here for 2 night for new year and thought it was pretty good value in comparison to the prices of other hotels in the city. The room is pretty basic and the shower room small, but the staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good with an impressive continental buffet and a good table service for hot food.

The hotel is really aimed at students, with the rooms being former dorm rooms, however it is in a good location not far from Princess Street and quite central. The room was clean and the breakfast was delicious. There is a basic bathroom in the room. I recommend it if you need a cheap but cheerful place to stay on... More

The room was quiet but the fan in the toilet lasted noisy for 20 minutes after turning off the light, which did not disturb sleep. No lift but... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
