Edinburghhouse Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

got what i needed out of it..wasnt too expensive, but not cheap either and it was about 15mins from what most consider downtown. decent little guesthouse...don't expect luxury and be ready to climb the hill and you'll be fine.

Not the most comfortable beds, but for the price, it's hard to beat. It's 1.5 miles from the bus station. An easy walk, and very close to the city centre and other attractions. Easy check in. Room was spacious. I'd definitely stay here again.

The Edinburgh House Hotel is two joint houses turned into a hotel. However, the word "hotel" may not be the most appropriate due to the size of the rooms. "Hostel" could be more accurate. Single and double rooms are ridiculously small. I had the oportunity of staying in both as despite booking a single room, I was transferred into a double two days into my 5-day stay. The reason was that I complained on arrival about the only window being a roof one, which could leak over night since I sleep with the wondow open. I wasn't transferred straight away becasue the whole hotek had been booked up for the second day of my stay becasue of a concert. As for the single room, it was L-shaped and literally 6 m2 in size, 3 of which was under the slope of the roof. There wasn't enough space to open my large suitcase. Due to the space constranis, the shower and toilet are separate, the former being separated from the rest of the room by the glass door of the shower. There was no wardrobe or closet, only two hangers on hooks. There was even less space for moving around in the double room, though there was a wardrobe the size of 4 shoe boxes. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the continental breakfast excellent. There are many B&Bs in the same street, all of which are clearly much better value for money. The location is acceptable - 30 mins from the city centre. The interenet is NOT free, neither is it cheap (GBP 3 /day).

I liked the location and the cost was very reasonable. The only issue I had was the WiFi didn't work in my room.

the small are very small and there is no room to put anything accept the bed . the location is good , and connected to many ereas , the room also clean and staff are very helfull

Initially checked in to room with two twin beds (which was what I had booked/wanted). Was asked to move to a smaller room with one twin bed the next day, which entailed repacking. Room was tiny, lacked adequate hangers or drawer space, and had no place to sit but the bed.

The family that owned the hotel is great! These people are supernice! They were curteous, helpful, friendly and always available to answer questions. Plus, they have a very sweet 6-months old baby -- a lovely little girl. And you won't believe this: They refused an extra tip, saying it was too much.

We did not arrive at the hotel until about 1 in the morning, but the couple that run the hotel were awake, had our reservation and the rooms all ready. It was nice having the tea in the rooms. We reserved 2 single rooms, but when we got there we were given rooms with 2 and 4 beds. The one with the four beds had it's own bathroom, the oe with the 2 beds shared with one other room as far as I could tell. We did not get up in time for the continental breakfast served from 730-0900, but the owner gave us free tea and coffee. The bus stop is right across the street from the hotel and took us to the city center for 1.20 pounds each. The hotel is not close to the airport or city center, but it is a very short and easy bus ride. The rooms were clean and the towels were fresh. Overall I was very impressed.
