It's all there!
Scottish Tourist Board approved many B&Bs.
Location! Location! Location!
Ardgarth Guest House at Portobello (Rated 4-Star by STB = the Scottish Tourist Board)
Best room at this place is room 1(ensuite). Different size and type! Rooms equipped with extra electric radiator in addition to the central heating! What a luxury!. Choice of breakfast(excellent) and served by a few friendly young girls. Fresh air from Firth of Forth! Very tidy and clean! 1 St Mary's Pl, Edinburgh EH15 2QF
Edinburgh Holiday Guest House (STB) on Minto Street, Newington where you'll countless B&Bs!
Renovated and modernised! Clean! The rooms are cleaned daily! English breakfast or (unedible) noodle soup which was so salty I cannot even swallow the first bite! Many buses bring you to Princes Street.
Homestay at Moat Place (15 minutes to Princes Street), Staircase not so pleasant looking and a !fragrance of Indian spice pervades the air! The flat is not unpleasant although no effort was made to make it pleasing to the eyes. A sumptious breakfast is provided. A second duvet with stained bedsheet was available. I used it and skin rashes developed on my thigh!
Caveat Emptor – it is all there, take your pick – STB approved Eyre Guest, Ardenlee although not there personally I'd trust the STB.
This one bedroom flat is situated in a prime location within 5 minutes of walking distance into the heart of city Center.
The host is very pleasant, welcoming and helpful. This is a budget accommodation with basic facilities.
I must remind that the window needs immediate attention as it rattles through wind and draft was not in short supply. Make sure you have adequate clothing.
All in all it the price was right.
The location in New town is great - close to everything. The unit it self is sad! There are 48 stair steps to get to the 3rd floor unit. The apartment itself is just 3 rooms a tiny kitchen and a bathroom. There is no pace to go and sit except for your room. The house is dirty -- not just moderately unclean but dirty. I cleaned the knobs on the stove and the front door on the washing machine. Then I realized that I had paid a lot of money for this bedroom and I shouldn't have to clean. I always wore my sandals in the kitchen because the floor was sticky. The carpet looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in a month or more. In our room there were two different places that we could put our clothes but they were filled with one of Jim's friends clothes and extra pillows and blankets. We did have a closet to hang clothing so we didn't have to live out of our suitcases totally.
Please understand Jim is a great guy -- he waited for us to come to help carry our suitcases up all those fights of stairs and he was helpful as to where to go and what to see. He just needed to hire a cleaning person once a week to clean the rooms.
Jim was an excellent host and was always at hand to help needed.
His flat was brilliantly situated, with shops, cafes, bars and village life all around.
I slept like a log and enjoyed the feeling of being at home rather than that of being a traveller.
Very nice and friendly guy who welcomed us warmly and gave us useful tips for our stay.
We had a lovely stay with Jim in Edinburgh. He was very helpful and picked us up from the bus stop. We also received many tips and event information on Edinburgh from him. Our room had a sufficient size (we got a bigger one, than we booked before) and we were allowed to use kitchen and bathroom.
Thanks for the nice place to stay!
Jim is very kind and he help us very well. And the bedroom is very nice.
Very friendly host, who told us about the sights and nice palces in Edenburg, and recomanded a very good and cheep restaurant to eat very good haggis. In the house and the kitchen is was not very clean, but we had a nice room and a good warm shower.
Take attention by parking your car, You have to pay for parking and it's quite expensive .
Jim is actually very nice and easy to work with, and - very important - the bed is good. However, the traffic roars all night outside on the cobblestones, and the sun rises in the Scottish summer very early on. I had an eye shield (meant for air travel) and buy earplugs so I could sleep. For traffic Jim can not help, but good, thick curtains would make a big difference.
Jim ist tatsächlich sehr nett und umgänglich, und - sehr wichtig - das Bett ist gut. Der Verkehr rauscht jedoch die ganze Nacht draussen auf dem Kopfsteinpflaster, und die Sonne geht im schottischen Sommer sehr früh auf. Ich musste eine Augenblende (gemeint für Flugreisen) und Ohrstöpsel kaufen, damit ich schlafen konnte. Für den Verkehr kann Jim nichts, aber gute, dicke Vorhänge würden einen grossen Unterschied machen.
Fantastic location, near transport, you need no car and no public transport to reach everything on foot. Jim is a very nice and friendly host. We enjoyed :-)
Fantastische Lage, verkehrsgünstig gelegen, man benötigt kein Auto und auch keinen öffentlichen Nahverkehr, alles fussläufig zu erreichen. Jim ist ein sehr netter und freundlicher Gastgeber. Wir haben es genossen :-)
