Alexanders Rooms
Ranked #104 of 394 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 13, 2011

We are a family with a 21 months baby and we've spent 3 nights in Alexanders rooms. The attention is excellent and the room and the garden are very conformtable.
Is just 5 min in bus of the center and easy to find by car.
Very good election

This place is a real gem, located in a lovely area of Edinburgh about a 20 min walk into the old town through a beautiful park. Very stylish decor, you can tell a lot of attention has been put into every little detail. Incredibly comfortable bed and a great breakfast. A great alternative to staying in a big impersonal hotel.

We received a lovely reception when we arrived and were very well looked after for our entire stay. Every effort was made to make the rooms welcoming and comforting with many thoughtful touches. Our host Keith has a great knowledge of Edinburgh and Scotland and is very well connected, if you need to know what's on he will no doubt help. Would highly recommend this property for a genuine and enjoyable Edinburgh experience.

We were very impressed with Keith's place. Beautiful and cosy home with great decor. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine as well. Five stars is what we'll rate it in terms of cleanliness, hospitality and comfort. Do not be disheartened for cooked breakfast lovers because the sumptuous spread of continental breakfast in the morning will certainly give you a bright start to your day. We felt at "home" and were given the use of the kitchen and coffee making facilities whenever we feel like it. Pampered with comfy bed, bathrobes, fruit/snacks, whisky, bottles of sparkling&still water....You wont be disappointed.

Keith is a welcoming and friendly host who always goes the extra mile to make guests feel at home in his B&B.
The rooms are well equipped and very comfortable, with a kitchen available to heat up an evening meal, and - a personal favourite - thick fluffy towels!
Last time I stayed here Keith knew I had a cold and I arrived to find a supply of Lemsip in my room and the heating turned up, which was great.
I'd recommend Alexanders Rooms to anyone looking for a quiet comfortable place to stay in Morningside.

My friend and I stayed at this B&B when visiting Edinburgh for some shopping, enjoying the sights and great bars and restaurants that the capital has to offer. It is set in a beautiful location which is very quiet yet nearby to the cool local shops, restaurants and bars in a cosmopolitan "village" of Edinburgh. It is also only 10 minutes from the city centre by bus (the bus service is frequent and runs all day) and a cheap cab ride.

The B&B is charming - Keith who runs it is the perfect host, offering attentive service but not intrusive or over bearing. He also has excellent taste so the rooms are beautifully furnished, (and large), and he has thought of everything in terms of the amenities in the rooms (bottles of water, plenty of thick towels, i Pod docking station, hairdryer,etc)
I would definitely recommend it and will be going back!!

Could not fault this place - fantastic location with great transport links and up-market local shops and cafes nearby. Our room was spacious and immaculate, looking over the private garden, and lovely choice of breakfast (served in the garden, weather permitting!) The owner is helpful and knowledgable and we felt very comfortable being in and around their beautiful home. This has to be the most relaxing place to stay - discreet and accommodating, the owner went out of his way to ensure our stay was as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. A great addition to the Edinburgh boutique B&B scene, we will certainly stay here again.
