stayed here for one night, Allan (sorry if i spelt that wrong) was lovely, I turned up super early from Glasgow as I had a tour to do, he let me store my bags there, and he rang around until he found me a cab as I was going to be late if I took a bus and it was... More

Place needs upkeep. Shabby and worn is best description for this place. Receptionist very pleasant. Food is slopped onto yr plate at breakfast. Clearly budget....'two for the price of one' hand wash in shared bathroom.... Won't see me again anytime soon.

My partner and I were looking for for a simple, clean and good value place to stay for our weekend in Edinburgh. We were not expecting much, just a place to sleep and freshen up after exploring the city was all we needed but unfortunately, this hotel could not even deliver that! Our room was a cold, damp smelling basement... More

Abbots House does offer free wifi, but the signal only extends through the front lobby area, not the guest rooms. However, my room was perfectly clean, and the location is good. The #35 bus is 5 minutes away, and the #12 bus (Princes Street, museums, etc.) is literally steps from the front door. Good value for the money.

I would definitely not stay here again... a hostel with a shared dorm room is probably a better idea... my room here was exceedingly basic - no shampoo or conditioner, cold, with a creaky bed and very thin walls! (I could hear my neighbour's having a conversation..). The shared bathroom featured a toilet which was consistently out of water and... More

Cheap and cheerful is a comment that is often bandied about. Abbots House Hotel, on the other hand does not fall in to this category at all. Abbots House Hotel can only be described as cheap and NASTY. BEWARE:- The pictures on the website looked good, but as they say, never judge a book by it's cover. In my opinion,... More

Stayed here for 1 night in the middle of November. Easy enough to get to; a 10 minute bus ride from Edinburgh city centre. Was quite pricey. Room was decent enough but the shared bathroom wasn't the cleanest. The fire alarm going off a 3am wasn't ideal either.

My family and I stayed 2 nights at the Abbot's House Hotel while traveling in Scotland. It is located in the downtown area of Edinburgh. Our room included 1 king size bed, 1 double bed as well as a small TV. It was perfect for what we were looking for, just a clean place to sleep. We were out all... More

The room was neat and clean, the bedding was fresh and the ensuite was all you need for a night or two. The room had a tv and tea and coffee tray. The staff were really friendly and helpful. It is well situated for city centre and outskirts. My only gripe would be that the breakfast is served quite late... More
