    Averon guest house has two main points of strenght, in my opinion: its position, just out of the city centre (about 10-15 minutes on foot after you have avoided the risk of getting lost) and its very local and typical looks. It's a cottage in...More

    Easy to find just off main road into Edinburgh. Cosy room. Friendly staff. Super breakfast. Easy walking distance to city centre and nightlife. Parking is a great bonus and you can arrive at the car park early and depart later in the day.

    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

    How can I go to the hotel from Edinburgh airport? Is there any public transportation i.e. bus or taxi? Do I need to book it in advance?
