Fabulous 8.8 From 14 reviews

Alpha Guest House, Edinburgh
Very Good8.0
Convenient bus stop to town
The Alpha guest house is actually Aaron's lodge, a3min drive away. Our double bed ensuite room is quite small with no room for large luggages. Beside from the room size, the owners were very nice and allows us to park for the day we checked out to tour Edinburgh old town center, which is definitely not a place you want to drive. There is a bus stop right in front of the lodge . Number 33,49 and 8 takes you to town center.
