If you are looking for a clean, comfortable bed with a good breakfast to set you up for the day look no further than the Sonas Guest House. This is a family run B&B where you will be assured of a very warm welcome by Irene, Christie and Dennis. The room has usual tea and coffee and facilities and our... More

A charming, tidy, comfortable and very friendly place to stay. Bus stop is 1 minute walk with a short bus ride into town to catch The Fringe activities. Breakfasts are delicious and the porridge is delicious. The right place to stay for a visit any time to historical Edinburgh. There are also some very old, historical pubs within 5 minutes... More

Excellent!!! Nice staff (Irene and Cristina). Very nice breakfast in a cute dining room. Quite and clean place. Free car park. I'll repeat if I come back to Edinburgh. It's not in the city centre but you have a bus stop very close or you can take a taxi for 7 pounds.

Few years ago I stayed here whilst a student, now back to find out Sona's still keep up to its charm: a cosy and stylist place, not to mention the great hospitality and "bespoke" breakfast The rooms are nicely decorated in a very relaxing and classy atmosphere

Booked here on a last minute decision to go to Edinburgh. Really nice place, full of character and charm. We booked the cheapest room with a spare bed for our three year old. Great breakfast, lovely staff always available for any questions. Would book again.

Loved the decor, food, accommodations, and was made to feel so welcome. After a long day of travel, Christie was there to greet me, and I settled in to a beautiful room with all I needed for a pleasant stay. She was also so helpful by answering any questions I had about Edinburgh and making the most of my stay.... More

Returning again to Edinburgh I stayed just two nights with my daughter at Sona's. For us for sure one of Edinburgh's best B&Bs! Nice, clean room and a wonderful breakfast - thank you, Christie and Irene, for making us feel at home every time!
