Ok.... I expected to pay over the odds for the festival but I didn't expect this place. For a whopping £118 per night we had to wait over 15 minutes for the chap to come and let us in even though he expected us and said he'd be there in under 5 minutes. Apparently he had another property to attend... More

I stayed with my wife for one night in order to do the sights of Edinburgh. The hotel is 15-20 mins walk from the Royal mile. We stayed on the ground floor with a private bathroom. The room was clean and adequately furnished. I did not use the WiFi. I did try to watch some football on the tv and... More

The hotel is inexpensive, but it is also old with small rooms. We had a room with two single beds. The beds were hard. The room also did not get Wi-Fi at all times. The cable also went in and out often. The bathroom was so small that we could barely turn around in it, but at least it did... More

Great location, and is about a 15 minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley train station. Very easy to get across the city using the public transport and plenty of shops and amenities nearby. Our room was spacious (the carpet was lovely to walk on), but it was incredibly noisy outside. Whilst I had no problem, the bed was very low down,... More

Good location, easy to walk to the Royal Mile (15 min on foot) or by bus. Margaret is lovely and literally “saved our lives” after the guest house we had booked on Booking, 2 days before arriving, said had no rooms available for us. Our room and bathroom definitely needs redecoration, but I think it’s the cheapest solution during the... More

Comfy rooms. Well situated. Recommend very highly. Centrally located; easy to walk to everywhere with buses on the corner for those who need. Landlady, Margaret, very warm and helpful. Book early and these rooms go quickly, especially for the Festival.

Great location. The landlady is lovely but the rooms and bathrooms are tired and need redecoration etc , the shower i used was powerful and hot. A bit grim but very cheap so you get what you pay for I guess ,a little chilly later at night. Average for the price

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
