Loved staying here. We had a gorgeous, large room on the top floor with a lot of stairs but we coped. David & Katie were charming and very helpful for visitor tips. Huge variety of eating choices close by for dinner.

Had a wonderful time in Edinburgh recently with my husband and two children. David couldn't have been anymore accommodating and friendly. We had a family room for 4 and it was so spacious. Great central location. Great restaurants right on your doorstep. Would highly recommend No 53!

This is really a nice B&B. Friendly and nice personel. Spacious rooms with comfortable beds. Fresh bathroom with high standard. The breakfast was served in the restaurant in the ground floor and it was great. The hotel has no elevator so if you have heavy luggage that might be the only drawback.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. I read a few reviews on this place and the most negative one was reports on the stairs, I must agree with them if you have a problem with stairs then this isn't the place for you as you have 3 flights to climb and even though Dave is very very good you... More

Was a great place to stay, the staff were very helpful, the room was modern and very comfortable. Stayed two nights and also ate here. The food was great and reasonably priced. I don't hesitate to recommend this hotel. It is a great location for the city centre.

An excellent B&B. Very friendly staff. And very conveniently placed for the attractions, restaurants and shopping on Prince Street. Tram stops at the top of the riad and the train station is about a 5 minute walk away. Really enjoyed our weekend break.

We spent three nights in a very comfortable, big room at 53 Frederick Street. If you are travelling with a lot of luggage, be aware that the rooms are on the second and third floors without lift. But if you don't mind the stairs, this is a great place to stay. We stayed in a room that has not yet... More

53 Frederick Street is in a very convenient walking location to tourist attractions. There are a few flights of stairs to negotiate for reception but the old stone flag stair case adds to the charm of this bed and breakfast. It is a beautiful building and is tastefully decorated. The rooms are a good size with a kettle , tea... More

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.
