Perfectly placed with a 10 minute walk to Princes Street but in a lovely quiet part of the city allowing you to sleep well in the very comfortable bed. Parking is free 5.30pm-8.30am and at weekends so we only paid a couple of £ for our long weekend. The room is cosy with the normal tea tray. Shower good although...

This place is in a wonderful location being very close to all the things one wants to see in the city. It is on a quiet side road in a terrace of houses and guest houses. We were greeted very warmly by Jasmin's, the owner's, son, son inlaw, and granddaughter. They helped my husband up the stairs with our luggage...

Conveniently situated for the Fringe (it's about 10-20 minutes from the most venues) and comfortable enough for a short stay. Jasmine is very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast is good (the haggis is especially fine) and at £100 a night for a double room I think it's good value for Edinburgh in August. The wi-fi can be a bit flaky (but...
