The Albyn Townhouse is conveniently located, about 15 min walk to the city center. There are also four busses just around the corner. The B&B is lovely decorated and from our room (top floor) we had a marvellous view over the city. David makes a hearty and filling breakfast every morning. Both, he and Lydie, are very friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed at Albyn house for 2 weeks which is a long time for a bed and breakfast stay. They were warm and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble from directions to finding out any information that we needed. I would recommend Albyn house to all, both for its hosts and its position in Edinburgh

My wife and I recently spent three nights at the Albyn on our journey through the UK. This was a fun stay for us. The owners and their staff are most helpful and friendly. The location is great as it affords some peacefulness yet is in close proximity to buses and all the sights in Edinburgh. The rooms are cozy... More

By any measure this is a very good guesthouse (B&B) with very comfortable and nicely furnished rooms. Tea/coffee making facilities are available in rooms. There is limited parking for cars (check when booking in for availability), it is quite close to the city, which you can get to by bus or you can walk there in 20 minutes. There are... More

One of the best Bed and breakfasts we have ever stayed in. From the start a friendly and personal welcome was given to both of us. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated. Very quiet location at the end of a Cul-de-sac with the huge bonus, in Edinburgh, of some off street parking ! Easy access on foot within... More

Stayed for 4 nights in September, could not fault Albyn. Very welcoming hosts, beautiful room, exceptionally clean. Breakfast was plentiful & alot of choice. Bus service at top of the road takes you into the centre and on to major attractions in the city, for example Ocean Terminal for the royal yacht Britannia. A £3.20 day ticket is a bargain.... More

Location is superb being in a quiet avenue but only a short (15mins) walk to the centre of Edinburgh and with a number of bars, cafes and restaurants close by... More

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend break with my boyfriend. The guesthouse was well kept, our room (6) was beautifully decorated and maintained, and very clean. It's in a very quiet area and there was no external or internal noise heard. About 20 mins walk into town. (Princes St area) Secure car parking was available when I asked... More
