Parking terrible... Had to lug baggage from remote on-road parking to front door as you can't stop outside... Room draughty... Breakfast poor... Not close to the centre but at least the buses stop outside. Not recommended unless you're after very cheap and cheerful!

The room was ensuite, and it was very good and tidy. For me and my friend it was good enough. The breakfast was okay. Nadia is a very friendly person. The location was good, it was in acceptable walking distance from the centre, and a bus stop was one minute away from the house

We werehaving our bathroom done so we decided to stay somewhere for 6 nights originally. The Minto guest house was a cheap place for us and the stay was good. The beds were nice and warm, the rooms comfortable and the en suite was really nice. Cleaned everyday and generally great. My only problem was that my shower was luke... More

Lovely warm room, comfortable bed, ample continental breakfast, enjoyed my weekend break in Edinburgh, fabulous location on direct bus route straight to city centre. Free wi-fi, I would stay again here as good value for money.

This place looks lovely from the outside, parking is not too handy though. Once in though things change somewhat. It's all a bit dilapidated. Really could do with a decorate. Our room was advertised as having a "private bathroom". Not to be confused with "en-suite". Our Wc and hand-wash basin was along at the other end of the corridor. But... More

This place was booked by another guest house I booked and who made a mess of my booking with them. I was shown to a room in the extension at the back of the house, and had to walk round the block to get to it. The room was on the ground floor. It had no wash hand basin, so... More

This is not a bad stay given the location and proximity to the heart of Edinburgh, it's about a 2km walk but not a hard one. The atmosphere is friendly yet our initial room had no heating and significant road noise. We were moved to an upgraded room which was no issue for the proprietor and this was quite spacious....

I'd say the cleanliness was not a problem. That was about the only positive thing. The price was ok but for the location; theft!! reading reviews I generally look at the below average ones but still I couldn't believe some of the stuff. "Hah, they just had a bad experience".. well so did we. Watch out! Other reviews mentions the... More

We needed a cheap stay in Edinburgh as we needed to catch a flight home the next day. Booked Minto on booking.com and wished I checked Trip Advisor beforehand... The room we were sold came with a private bathroom. Unfortunately this bathroom was a floor above the room... private but not convenient. The only toiletries was a half used bottle... More

We had a lovely three night stay at Minto. Nadia was very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to old town and on bus route if you don't feel like walking but Weather was kind to us so we walked everywhere. Can highly recommend if you want budget accommodation.
