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.

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.

The Emmaus House was absolutely the best place we could have stayed in Edinburgh. It was incredibly reasonably priced, perfectly located (less than a mile walk to the main part of town and surrounded by excellent restaurants and cafes), and our hosts couldn't have been friendlier. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning which, in addition to being hearty and having...

This was our second stay at Emmaus House, when we decided to return to Edinburgh there was never any doubt of where to stay. The warm atmosphere and the friendly staff that we met last year made us feel like we were coming home. Our room had all we needed, comfortable beds, en-suite, peace and quiet. Breakfast is very nice,...

We stayed at Emmaus houses this June for 4 nights and just loved it. We felt we were part of the community and enjoyed the food and the location. We highly recommend it. Of particular value to us was the communal prayer and the meals where we got to really know the other guests and Scots people.
