A cosy and quiet B&B. The single room was adequate, nice high ceiling and big windows (with shutters). A small sink in the room. The shared bathroom for the two single rooms seemed newly renovated and was very convenient and clean. It had a tiled floor and walls and a shower with good water pressure and was located right across... More

The proprietor was friendly, and the breakfast was good. However, I did not like the room. I could feel the bed springs in the bed. The wallpaper is peeling and old. The bathroom is carpeted and there were drips of *something* on the carpet next to the toilet. Overall, the rooms need a facelift and new beds. There was one... More

The location is close to the main tourist attractions and nice restaurantes are all in walking distance. If necessary a bus station is right accross the street. The rooms are relatively big, the service is friendly, the breakfast not more than average, limited car park infront of the building. Nothing really to complain about but that for the price you...

This B&B is very good value, and very central. There are nice restaurants and bars nearby, and walking distance from the main tourist attractions. I stayed there while attending a conference at the Edinburgh Conference Centre, and it was a perfect location, only a few minutes walk. Ruth and Agus (owners) were very helpful and friendly and accommodating to my... More

We spent three nights at the Burns Guest House during our trip to Edinburgh in April and there’s absolutely nothing I could complain about. The rooms were very nice and clean (and kept immaculate by our hosts throughout our stay). Mr and Mrs Adji were very helpful and welcoming and provided us with all the information we needed.

Had a wonderful time staying at the Burns Guest House. Ruth and Agus were excellent hosts. They even made special breakfast accommodations for us so that we could make our early flight. The house is right on the busline. The neighborhood is safe to walk even during the evening. There are some local interesting pubs nearby. The room was clean.... More
