After having a hotel cancel on us the day before we arrived in Edinburgh, we were nervous about this fall-back hotel. We were glad the other place cancelled, because the rooms, the breakfasts, the hosts and the location of this hotel was perfect. Our rooms were all very wonderfully decorated. The husband and wife duo were extremely accommodating and helpful... More

The Albyn Townhouse is a really charming B'n'B. The interior was selected lovely and everytime you go up the stairs there is something new to discover. The room was romantic and we were able to see the edinburgh castle from up there. The Breakfast was a great experience as well. You could choose from vanilla pancakes to mushroom omlette. It... More

Spent 2 days at Albyn Townhouse, very friendly owner - Lydie, good location, away from busy street and have a quite stay in Edinburgh, cozy room, lovely apartment, good breakfast. We left early morning for Skye trip, they prepare a very good take away breakfast, gives us energy for the day start.

The only reason I didn't give this an excellent rating is that in 30+ years of staying in B&B's I never met the owners here until the last day - and that was only one of them. They were around, just weren't out front during breakfast and at other times when we were coming and going. One of the things... More

We spent 8 days at the Albyn Townhouse while travelling around Scotland. Bus access to downtown Edinburgh is very convenient, although it truly is close enough to walk and experience the surrounding neighborhoods. Our arrival coincided with the owners holiday so we were greeted by Fernando. He was a perfect fill-in for Lydie and David and was so helpful to... More

This is a very nice little hotel, the rooms are beautiful, the bed very comfortable. The room was very clean, it had a beautiful view over the city. It is easy to walk into the old city, the walk takes 10-15 minutes. The couple who owns the place are both very nice and helpful, they gave us really good advice... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Oct 2013. Its a very stylish and comfortable B&B at a very nice location. Old City, the heart of Edinburgh is walkable in 20-25 min, otherwise buses are available from nearby. B&B has car parking, though it gets little sqeezed with other occupants and you need to be a skillful driver. It has... More

Stayed for one night. Location was very quiet - no through road. I would imagine that if I had brought a car - parking might have been an issue. Very welcoming, very comfortable, great shower! Breakfast was delicious - fruit, cereals, home made cakes and cooked options...

Stayed at premises for a long weekend. We were in room 7 at the very top of house, lovely view of Edinburgh over the roof tops. Room was beautifully decorated with a huge bed. Breakfast was lovely and everything cooked fresh and everyone is extremly friendly and helpful. Parking is limited and you do have to pay £5 a night.... More
