Arden Guest House, Edinburgh
Family trip to Edinburgh
Continental Breakfast was fabulous, but the hotel was a below average place. The room was cramped up and the WIFI was not good at all. The hostess Linda was very courteous and good, but the amenities were sub-par. The carpets were not very clean. Parking is very limited.

Definitely stay here
Modern room and tiny bathroom but very workable. Good breakfast, plenty to eat without paying extra for full Scottish breakfast. Location was wonderful because only yards away from the bus stop to city center. No need to buy a day pass since most attractions are within walking distance of center.

Great service, but noisy and a little uncomfortabl
Service at the guest House is great! The location is convenient and not too far out of town. the bus pickup is 10 meters from the front door making it convenient to get in and out of town. Note, if you are a light sleeper, the guest house is on a major street and car noise can easily be heard from the streets and other rooms. In addition, during the summer months, the rooms have standard blinds that allow light in the room. This includes lights from cars, police and ambulance in addition to the streetlights and sun.
