Great hotel for central Edinburgh. Friendly, clean and comfortable. You need to be fit enough to carry bags upstairs, but worth the climb. Very helpful kind staff. Feels authentic and nice place to return back to. Within walking distance of lots of good cafes, the Leith, the new and old town.

What I disliked was that there is no breakfast facility in the house, must take it in a outside restaurant/hotel. Also the man at the reception desk was too hasty in welcoming... More

Our stay at Edinburgh Townhouse was great They were very helpful and attentive to our needs. We enjoyed staying there very much. This historic house was well renovated and very close to the centre of Edinburgh. Only a 10 minute walk to Waverley station.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
