Adria House is one of the BEST b&bs we have ever stayed in!
The location is okay, just 15 mins walk from the train station.
Very good environment & comfortable room!
Excellant services!
Very nice breakfast (full set of traditional English breakfast!)
100% good value with reasonable price!

I was staying there twice in 2007 and 2008, every time 3 nights.. I wish it could have been more as I visited Edinburgh quite often (8 times) between 2007 and 2008 but unfortunately they were busy and I wasn't lucky enough to get a room there.. - saying this, i had to use other B&Bs around and none of them comes close to Adria House! 200% recommended! Book early!

I was traveling with my girlfriend and her sister through the UK as part of a trip that included her cousins wedding in Somerset, UK in the summer. We wanted to spend 3 of our vacation days in Edinburgh as my heritage is Scottish and I've always wanted to go. I found Adria House as a fairly highly rated Trip Advisor choice of B&B...but I had NO idea that it would stack up so incredibly well against all the other B&B's I have stayed at in my life.

Firstly, the place is literally across the main bridge and around the corner from EVERYTHING. It can be walked very easily, by any age. It sits in a gorgeous row of majestic stone townhouses at the base of Calton Hill (anytime you see pics from Edinburgh they show these Roman columned things on a hill with the sunset in the background ect....that's Calton Hill). It's a nice, clean area with a number of pubs and a little mall close by.

Our room, two beds, one double and one single was HUGE, with plenty of light, a large bathroom and felt so nice the whole time we were there. The poor UK water pressure was regulated by one of those awesome machines that makes it high pressure which was great! We had more space in our room than we knew what to do with.

The brother and sister who run Adria House (My apologies to them as I have long since forgotten their names) are absolutely wonderful. They are accommodating, kind and very helpful. The brother was the one who cooked our breakfasts and they were always a great proper Scottish fry up. There is a nice sitting room with a laptop for using the internet completely free, and a payphone for making that important call home too.

I can't say enough good things. If you go to Edinburgh and plan to stay in a B&B, do yourself a Big favour and stay at Adria House. You will not be disappointed. It is quite fairly priced and worth every penny.

Lastly, on our last day we had to leave really early, long before breakfast was going to be served in the dining room...so the sister had made us up to-go breakfast bags with granola, cheese, fruits and juice ect...which was such a wonderful little parting surprise.

Near perfect experience.

We stayed five nights at the Adria House in Edinburgh. The Guesthouse lies very central only a five minute walk from princess street at Calton Hill. We had a nice cosy room with a ensuite bathroom. The room was very clean and all the accessories as water boiler and hair dryer worked well and were in a good condition. One thing we enjoyed most was the breakfast. The only minor critique is that the bed was a little to short for my partner and we are not used to sharing one big blanket...

It would be impossible to say too many nice things about Adria House. It is beautifully decorated, impeccably clean and the brother and sister team of Eddie and Maria are perfect hosts. The location is quiet and residential while still being a short walk to the center of this beautiful city. The breakfast offers all one could want and specific requests are accomodated. The hosts are very helpful with dining and entertainment suggestions. There is also a telephone and internet connection/laptop available, which was exteremly helpful.
Being at Adria House is like staying at the home of a particularly helpful friend. We would not consider staying anywhere else when in Edinburgh.

My wife and I had the privelege of staying at Adria House in mid September.
Although we were only there for the night, we experienced excellent hospitality.
The atmosphere was quiet and the facilities were clean. The breakfast was fresh and scrumptious. The host was very helpful.
