A place to lay your head
This is walking distance to the royal yacht, but a car or transport is needed to see other sites. The room was good as it could accommodate three people in separate beds, which seems to be a difficult proposition in Europe.

Stayed there for 1 night on our way out of Edinburgh. Our overall rating would have been better if the room was thoroughly clean. Maybe it was just our room (above the reception office) so I can't say much for the rest of the hotel. Hostess kindly accommodated our non-feather/down bedding request, which was nice.

Pillars House Review
The Pillars House is an excellent place to stay. It is about a 30 minute walk from Princes Street but close to the harbor and many restaurants. The staff was friendly and informative about the area and sights to see. Breakfast was good as well. Beds weren't the most comfortable but still doable and the walls are very thin, so you can hear people talking in the room next door. However, it is very secure and I felt very safe during my weekend staying in Pillars House.

Pillars House, Edinburgh
Heartily enjoyed it!
Edna is a treat, a natural host who loves opening her doors to travelers. A delightfully quirky B&B, in Leith just a short bus ride from the center of town (or an enjoyable 30 minute walk on main roads), with a most excellent full Scottish (or English, if you make the mistake of passing on the haggis) breakfast, free parking in a lot behind the building, bunk beds for the kids (a rare find in the UK), and friendly staff (Marta is a true gem). We were very happy at the Pillars!
