We were looking for something on a budget and stayed in this perfectly pleasant guest house. It's not 5 star but that's not what you're looking for at this price. Room was clean comfortable, and more importantly the caretaker was very kind and accommodating. We ended up with a late flight and needed late check in, the caretaker made sure...

I requested an early check out which could not be met due to high guest levels and needing to clean the room, which is understandable... Until we actually arrived in our room (in the basement), the bedding was grubby to say the least, and the smell of smoke as you opened the door was overwhelming, we had to have the...

I'm giving this 2 circles because it was cheap and at least I had a roof over my head and hot water. The 'take your own' tea and coffee table was a nice touch too. Now for the bad. The room had obviously not been hoovered before our arrival (or before the start of the year...), the bathroom ceiling was...

Ok.... I expected to pay over the odds for the festival but I didn't expect this place. For a whopping £118 per night we had to wait over 15 minutes for the chap to come and let us in even though he expected us and said he'd be there in under 5 minutes. Apparently he had another property to attend...

I was asked for an ETA which I provided. Arrived to find the door locked and a couple of other guests waiting in the rain. 10 minutes latee somebody appeared to open the door. Left me waiting in a hall for another 10 minutes while he saw to the other guests. Payment of £120 was demanded in advance. Though the...

I stayed with my wife for one night in order to do the sights of Edinburgh. The hotel is 15-20 mins walk from the Royal mile. We stayed on the ground floor with a private bathroom. The room was clean and adequately furnished. I did not use the WiFi. I did try to watch some football on the tv and...

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighbourhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
