Traveled with my twenty-something niece and nephew and stayed 3 nights at Amar Agua. Lovely place with excellent breakfast. Location was a bit out of city centre which meant bus, uber or taxi to get there. If traveling with younger set I might chose to stay in walking distance of centre. Also, no lift so be prepared if you're on... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately the rooms which you had chosen were situated on our top floor and as we are a Victorian House built in 1882, obviously we are unable to have a lift. We are 1.5miles from the city centre, but all of this information is CLEARLY stated on our website for guests to see before they... More

My husband and I arrived on Wednesday the 7th of September, from the time of arriving to our departure on Sunday the 11th of September, we were tret like kings and queens. The whole few days were fantastic. Absolutely nothing was to much trouble, as I have problems walking around. Dawn Anne arranged for a wheelchair, you don't get this... More

Very good location, near bus to city center. Parking on street but no problem. Excellent rooms and bed. Food was very good . Good restaurants within easy walking distance.Five % up charge if you don't pay with cash. Check in not before 5 PM--and they mean it--be prepared. Be sure to have good directions to find it! Good spot!

If you are looking for a 5 star B&B in Edinburgh this is it. Beautiful clean comfortable rooms en suite. Breakfast is lovely, with a very personal touch. Just outside of the city center but within walking distance of numerous fine eating places.

Good location just outside city centre, roughly 10 mins in the car, easy to find your way about. Guest House was suited to our needs, we were on the upper floor and our 14 yr old daughter had a single room to herself which was ideal. Very welcoming hosts and the breakfast was well presented, fresh and great value for... More

My husband and I recently spent five nights at the AmarAgua Guest House on our honeymoon. We could not have asked for better accommodations. We stayed in Room #1, which was quite spacious by European standards, had a very comfortable bed and lovely en-suite bathroom. Each night, you submit a form for your requested breakfast the next morning, and it's... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Amar Agua. Our hosts were delightful and our room was very nice. We were served a delicious breakfast each morning. The B&B was a very short walk to the bus stop. The bus ride was only 15-20 minutes to the Royal Mile. We would definitely stay again.

It has been our third stay at the AmarAgua Guest House and it won't be our last. As always our room (No 3) was very clean, large and nicely appointed.

Lovely B&B in an upscale area of Edinburgh. We walked everywhere from this location. Stayed two nights. Rooms were immaculate, food was well-prepared, and hosts were clearly focused on providing caring service.
