“A fabulous place to stay in Edinburgh!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed at 4kt for two nights while we were in Edinburgh. It is a beautiful, charming, and clean bed and breakfast with the nicest host you will ever meet. David, the owner, was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. He cooked an absolutely delicious Scottish breakfast for us in the morning, gave my boyfriend cold medicine when he was sick, and packed us a great lunch for our train ride back to France. I don't normally stay in bed and breakfasts but this place was far better than any hotel we have stayed in while we have been traveling through Europe. I highly recommend this B&B and if we ever go back to Scotland, we will be sure to stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

A friend and I stayed here last night before getting an early flight from the airport. The room was beautiful, clean and the bed was SO comfortable. The shower was powerful and hot. David and his wife were super friendly and very understanding about our early exit. Unfortunately we missed the breakfast which was a shame because it does sound amazing. But this little gem of a guesthouse is just a few minutes bus ride from the city center, just outside is the bus stop for the airport. It was a perfect location and a perfect place, will hope to return on future trips to Edinburgh!

Couldn't have asked for more. Room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Location was perfect too. The warmth and friendliness of David the owner made for an enjoyable stay. Nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely stay here again.

I have travelled a lot worldwide over the last 9 years, staying mainly in chain hotels.......but David's 4KT is truly THE best place I have stayed in. Those anonymous chains could learn a LOT by staying for a couple of night's at 4KT! David's hospitality, attention to detail and general friendly personality is second to none. This really is like being at home.....only better! In my opinion it would be impossible to fault anything at 4KT. I will be staying here on each and every occasion that I visit Edinburgh - that's always assuming that there's 'room at the Inn' after all the excellent and well deserved reviews he's received! I suggested he buy the house next door to make sure there's room for me next time! Breakfast......well, what can you say......David will feed you up to keep you going through the day......or tell him what you do or don't want and that is exactly what you will get. Fantastic!
PS.....the fitness centre rating is my joke! Just walk in to the West End.....that's all the exercise you need!!!!!!

Room Tip: All David's rooms are excellent! But please be sensibly realistic .....this is not a detached se...

This place really is outstanding. From the initial booking, right through to the moment I left, the service provided by the friendly owner, Davy, really was superb.

The large room was light, airy, nicely furnished, with excellent facilities and, most importantly, immaculately clean. The cooked breakfast was delicious, too, with plenty of choice.

I had flown to Edinburgh, so was delighted to realise that the airport shuttle bus to the city centre stops opposite 4KT. It's really convenient for Murrayfield, Haymarket (5 minute walk) and the city centre (20 minute walk - 5 minutes on the bus).

I can't be doing with the big business hotels: the rooms are always the same, wherever you are in the world. In contrast, 4KT is a clean, well-furnished guest house with a friendly owner for whom nothing is too much trouble, and at a price that easily beats the faceless chanin hotels. As our American friends would say, it's a no-brainer!

Great location, easy access to the West End either walking or the bus service. Dave gave us great advice on what to do, where to go & where to eat. Rooms bright & airy, lovely breakfast - nothing to much trouble for the owner David. Will be planning another visit soon!

We stayed at David's place for two nights when we werer in Edinburgh. Compared to the lodge we would stay later in London, I would say 4KT is like living in heaven.

The location is good. Easy access to the bus station. There are buses taking you to the airport and the city center.

The owner David is very kind and provided us a lot of useful information to us. He got up early in the morning making breakfast for guests.

The room is clean and comfortable, equipped with thins we need.

I would definitely live in 4KT again if I ever got a chance to visit Edinburgh again!
