Emmaus House is very clean and friendly. I found the parking situation to be a little bit difficult. The staff was very hospitable. I was traveling around Scotland with my son and I would definitely stay here again.

From the moment I arrived I felt welcome and at home. Lovely house, lovely people, great breakfast! If you're looking for balm to the soul in an unfamiliar city, Emmaus House is perfect. The location is near bustling Bruntsfield and handy for the centre of town, but the house itself is quiet with a small garden to the rear. The...

Wonderful hospitality and community. When traveling alone it is important that you can share things - as you can in Emmaus House with the hosts and other guests. Cosy rooms, and a wonderful living room where to sit and read.

Emmaus House is a comfortable, welcoming and peaceful place to stay in the centre of Edinburgh where I always feel at home. The hosts create a wonderful balance of friendship and inclusion but I always feel able to have my own space and privacy. The rooms are warm, simple and comfortable and the food is great too.

Emmaus House is unique in its hospitality: its aim is to enable guests to feel truly at home. Rooms are simple but comfortable. Food is splendid and company and conversation not to be missed. The house has a comfortable sitting room with tv, dvds and many many books. Emmaus is within 20 minutes walk from Haymarket station and two minutes...

The most distinctive part of our visits to Emmaus House is the breakfast which we always enjoy. The food includes fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals, meat , cheese and boiled eggs. The guests sit together at a large table with a member of the Emmaus community.

Although we did not stay here due to an unforeseen problem during our tour of Scotland, I would like to say that Janet and others were wonderful in helping me figure out how to use airbnb and were very supportive. They responded quickly to my questions, gave me public transportation information and general help. Many thanks for superior service. So...
