We had the best nights sleep here and such a well cooked breakfast. The welcome and service was great Our room was tastefully decorated and equipped (eg hairdryer and fridge). The hotel is within walking distance of the city centre and there are bus routes near by too. We would thoroughly recommend this place for an enjoyable stay.

Gorgeously decorated and lots of little extras which really made us feel like Mirella was trying to make us feel as at home as possible - which she certainly... More

Booked this guest house for a Saturday night only at a reasonable price of £76. We arrived by train to Waverley and walked around 20 minutes to the guest house. A nice welcome and we were in Room 2 which is the first room as you enter. The room was cosy, warm and clean. The only thing I would say... More

A wonderful stay. Great hostess, very friendly welcome. Spotless room and hotel. Well cooked breakfast. Very handy for theatre, shopping and tourist attractions. Having used 6 or 7 Guest houses a year, this is truly one of the best.

We stayed for the weekend just gone, and I can't fault Mirella's hosting. She was warm and welcoming. Room 3 at the back was very comfortable, quiet and dark, and the ensuite had lots of extra touches. The breakfast was wonderful. Will definitely stay again! Thanks so much for a lovely weekend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Open all year round, Edinburgh House is a small mother and daughter run guest house in a traditional tenement building only a short walk to city centre attractions like Princes Street, Calton Hill, The Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle. There is also a good bus service to the city centre if you don't feel like walking! We have a variety of restaurants nearby, and the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre is only a couple of minutes walk. All of our rooms are finished to a high standard with en suite bathrooms, multi-channel digital TV, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryers in every room. Also, free wifi internet access is available. We operate a strictly non-smoking establishment. Should our guests have any special requirements (such as booking a taxi, arranging flowers etc) we are happy to oblige. Nothing too big and nothing too small for us! We also speak French and Italian for our foreign visitors. We look forward to welcoming you as guests to our B&B soon. ... more   less
