Location couldn't be more convenient! It's a few steps away from Princes Street which has the main shops and some sights of the city. Do take note that since this is a preserved building, they do not have lifts. So, if you're okay with that, it will be a great stay.

We really liked the room itself. Comfortable with a nice bathroom. Downsides were no fridge in the room and the three flights of stairs were a killer with luggage. Otherwise we really enjoyed our stay. It's super central, perfect location.

The location was amazing, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast delicious. The coffee was the best we had all week - strong and dark. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would suggest are more outlets for charging electronics and some hooks in the bathroom, such as on the back of the door. And I was confused by the "lotion" in the shower. Was it conditioner or body lotion? I couldn't tell.

Great location, great price, very nice rooms and helpful staff! The only downside was we could hear a lot of the early morning and late night activity of the construction across the street and the street side refuse pick up.

Clean, friendly hotel in middle of Edinburgh”
I picked this hotel mostly for location - it was perfect! We could walk to everything we wanted to do - mostly the Castle and Royal Mile. Plenty of shops and restaurants in very close proximity. The hotel is very clean and quaint. We had a large family room with 2 double beds, sitting area and large bathroom. There are many stairs, as usual in a downtown place. Breakfast was on 3rd floor and was delicious. Made to order, as well as buffet for fruits, yogurt, cereal and drinks. Staff was amazing. Beds were ok in comfort. Parking will probably be near castle, so you have to walk 0.5 miles through Princes Garden, and it was 28 pounds/day (but I expect this in any major city downtown). We truly enjoyed our stay here and would stay again.

Clean and cozy rooms, Excellent location”
My friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights and we absolutely loved it. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the room was spacious and really clean. The view from our room was amazing although we had to climb 5 flights to get to it so that was quite a work out. At the end, we didn't really mind that. Breakfast was also fantastic! I really felt the best value for money. I also loved that you can pretty much walk to the tourist spots from here, and there are a lot of good restaurants and pubs nearby.

Hotel like stay”
At a reasonable price, I was provided with a hotel like room and self selected breakfast served by specialized person, which were all out of my expectation. The room was clean with warmer to keep me comfortable from freeze outdoor. The manager was so strong and picked up 2 heavy suitcases each by one hand at same time on our arrival. He helped us to move them to the upper floor which solved the problem of having no escalator. The location was easy to go, like 10-15mins walk from rail station. However, the guesthouse would only be seen when looked up a little via windows/on wall of building. Can there be a micro-oven, things will be perfect!

Nice space for three people”
Good location on quieter street in Edinburgh but you can walk to everything. It is difficult to find a room that sleeps three people at a reasonable price, but this worked. I expected more of the original writers house, but unfortunately it went through a brutal renovation to turn into a guest house, so the charm is missing. Good clean house, with a good breakfast, so good value for the money, but not a beautiful home or Bed and Breakfast feel.

Great location. Friendly staff. Fantastic Scottish breakfast. I'd happily stay here again. ”
I stayed here for one night as part of a work trip. I would have liked to stay another night however the room was not available but the hotel allowed me to store my luggage with them for free the next day whilst I was out. The highlight of my stay was a delicious Scottish breakfast. This hotel is in a great location, just off Rose Street and Princes Street.

Perfect location. The initial entry can be off putting as it doesn’t properly reflect how nice the house is. A lot of stairs which was fine for us but not suited for anyone with mobility issues. This is a listed building so they are limited with what they can provide for this. Would stay again as lovely room.

Met our needs.”
Booked this guest house for location and price. Was visiting family who were staying in same street so very handy. Room at very top so around 70 stairs to climb which was tiring for my mum. Can’t complain however as only £52 for both of us for 1 night B and B. If staying for longer duration would stay in a hotel which had more facilities. Martin who was working throughout the day was very pleasant. Breakfast staff could have been a bit more attentive .

Our room was always clean. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The stairs were not a problem. Our room overlooked the street and it can get a little noisy on a weekend night. The breakfast was very nice as well. Can’t beat the location. Very close to bus and tram stops as well as many different restaurants and stores. I would stay at this hotel again.

Way too over priced ”
The rate per night was way too much for what we got. The rooms were very small. We felt as if we were crammed in a box. The staff (management and breakfast staff) were unwelcoming. The included breakfast was unpleasant to look at and to eat. All in all the only good thing was the location as it was close to everything but the experience in the hotel was awful. Everything was given at the minimum and if you asked for a little more, you were to be given attitude. Would or recommend for anything besides its location.
