  • Kresimir
    Very nice little family-run hotel in the central area of the city. I liked the atmosphere and especially how warm my room was when I got in from the cold and rain.
  • Anton
    It was really smooth interacting with Fiona in her small family-run hotel. The location is central (new town) with many shops and restaurants nearby. Also very convenient to get to the airport with a tram. The building is from the 19th century,...

    Brilliant location with car park which is free. A short walk 15 minutes to the Royal Mile. Great choice of restaurants for food just a few minutes walk away. Would be my first choice to book if going again to Edinburgh.
