We stayed at Sonas Guest House for two nights and it provided everything we could have asked for in a B&B! Beautiful interior, clean room and absolutely sparkling bathrooms. Breakfasts were massive and we were spoiled for choice. The location is a bit of a walk (around 25min) from the city centre, but this wasn't a problem for us as... More

Super friendly and helpful. Clean, neat, quiet. Great staff, wonderful breakfast. They really go the extra mile to help you in anything you might need. Will definitely stay at Sonas again next time I visit Edinburgh. Very close from bus stops, convenient location, you can easily reach City Center from here. Nice restaurants nearby. Particularly recommend Hellars Kitchen.

Lovely clean and welcoming B&B. Away from centre which we liked. 2 minutes walk to bus stop into Prices Street and all main attractions and 7 mins once on the bus (plenty of buses and £3.50 for the day rover was good value). Scottish breakfast was very filling to the point where we couldn't mange one on the second day!!!... More

We arrived mid afternoon for an overnight stay in Edinburgh. I received a very warm welcome and was told where to park the car. The entrance to the car park was slightly tight, however it was off the road. We were shown to our room and details about the bus service were provided, along with a very helpful map. I... More

Friendly and thoughtful service. As a foreign traveler, I was so pleased that the hostess was Initiative and patiently smiling to provide the tour advice and local information about traffic and restaurant, and help lift luggage ( we're young, so we can do it ourselves. But, still thanks to the enthusiasm of hostess~), especially after an exhausting day! The only... More

We normally stay nearby but as the Hotel was full found ourselves staying at Sonas whilst in Edinburgh for a football match. What a pleasant surprise! Free Parking out the back and easy access to the City centre with buses every few minutes or a 20 minute walk. The room was large and airy and the bed extremely comfortable. The... More

The customer service at this B&B really is impressive and the staff are super and go that extra mile for you. The room we had was huge (although I think we were given the family room), clean and comfortable. Plenty of private off road parking was a bonus, free wifi available and Breakfast was sumptuous. It is only a short... More
