The Albyn Townhouse is a well located (20 minutes walk from Princes Street) B&B in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It is well served by local shops and restaurants and is an ideal spot for those who are happy to be a little bit away from the noise and bustle of central Edinburgh. Our room was very comfortable and of a... More

My husband and I landed in Edinburgh late, went through a chaotic period renting a car, getting lost and trying to make it to the B&B. We were in touch by phone with Lydie, who was very concerned that we make it safely. We ended up getting lost, and finally about 10pm she offered to come rescue us. We waited... More

Fantastic the quiet in and outside the house. The house is the last one in a dead-end street, thus no traffic noise at all. Not even coming from other streets. The neighbourhood is definitely very quiet. You can only hear seagulls! We had very much luck with the other guests as well, since they all have always been very polite... More

Hello, i am so sorry that you did not enjoy your time with us. I could have changed anything for you unfortunately. The room you reserved, was described in metre sizes on Booking.com, there was ample storage space under your especially designed bed and under the window bench for your two days luggage, the services (including times) were the same...

This townhouse is more like a very small boutique hotel with a number of rooms and a restaurant style breakfast room. It is located on a cul-de-sac, very quiet, and the rooms are of decent size and well-appointed. The hosts are very welcoming. The townhouse is located in its own urban community about 20-30 minutes walk from the center of... More

Really enjoyed this B&B and the people in it. We're super nice despite being busy with the 10 rooms they had running. The view from room 10 was amazing. The food was fantastic. The location was close enough to the bustle but far enough to escape it. Would 100% recommend this place and will keep it on the radar for... More

Very good quiet location. 25 minute walk to all downtown sites. The pre-arrival package from the owners outlining local restaurants, attractions and public transit was very helpful. Thank you for an excellent start to our Scottish vacation. Glenn and Sheila Whitman
