The guesthouse was cute. The bed was clean and the room was fully equipped. However, the shower wasn’t very clean.

Cosy Guesthouse
The room was comfortable and as pictured. The breakfast room had a nice cosy atmosphere and the cooked breakfast was really tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful. The guesthouse was ideally located for our visit to the Playhouse to see a show.

Very expensive for what it is
We were there during the Fringe, which probably explains the inflated price; but even though we made our reservation quite ahead of time, it was still difficult to find anything that could host three of us for only two nights. The photo makes the room look a lot nicer than what it really is. Both bathroom and bedroom are quite small - even by European standards - and there is an overall feeling of tired and run down. Work was being done on the outside patio/dining area which made the indoor dining area extremely cramped. Breakfast was ok; packaged supermarket baked goods or greasy hot food. It's in a quiet part of town, about 20-30 mins walk from main attractions. A number of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops are very close by. It would be a reasonable place to stay at half the price we paid, which was just a little under $300 per night, for three people, with breakfast. For reference, we stayed in an upscale two bedroom apartment in London South Kensington for about the same price (no breakfast there, though) the week before.

Think twice
It’s a bit of a walk to the Royal Mile so if it’s raining it’s not pleasant. The room was small but we were there just one night. The shower was the smallest I’ve been in. I’m very petite and bumped against the walls. Breakfast was horrible. Greasy eggs. And I didn’t get the sense the kitchen was clean.

Rooms need a little TLC. Bathroom a little dated. Fridge and bottled water a nice touch.
