Excellent price for a central location. Comfortable room which was clean with comfortable beds. We had a triple room which shared a bathroom with the other room on the top floor. This didn't cause any problems and the shower was fantastic. We stayed for 2 nights and one of the bulbs in the bathroom didn't work the whole time which...

Thank you for your recent review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for alerting us on Trip advisor of the bathroom light bulb. As you are aware this bathroom is only sensor operated, therefore it is not always that we would be aware of the bulb needing replaced. We have now sorted this....

Comfortable place located in the "new" part of Edinburgh so you do have to do some walking to get to old town and most sites but the walk is not bad at all. And it's Edinburgh so walking around the town is easy and enjoyable. Check-in person was very nice and ready to share information. Bedroom was comfortable and clean.

Really lovely accommodation, fantastic location and a very warm welcome. We will definitely be back. Our room was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast at the local restaurant was delicious.

Stayed there my time in Edinburgh and really would stay there again. Really nice and helpful owners, clean rooms and a perfect central location. The Old Town (Royal Mile), Edinburgh Castle, Dean Village, Haymarket, even Arthur Seat are in walking distance. A lot of drinking and dining options right before the door on George Street. And for all Rebus lovers...

This is a charming guesthouse, very well located to explore Edinburgh. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Nicely decorated, clean room (we had the ensuite twin) and friendly helpful staff. surprisingly quiet given the location. The only negative is all the steps - but they keep you fit!

Unfortunately we were disappointed with our stay at The Edinburgh Townhouse. The room was very compact to say the least. We'd booked a deluxe double room and my side of the bed didn't even have a bedside cabinet. All my things went on the floor. The dressing table/drawers had no mirror, the mirror on the wall ws too high to...

Nice and Clean place. Took some time to understand how the shower works to get warm water. Very Close to nice Pups, shops and restaurants. Short way to the buses and tram. Very quiet room. Friendly staff.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
