Barely adequate
It was adequate, but out of the way when it looks like from the ad that it was that within walking distance of the Royalmile. It was a very very long walk. We were glad we only have to stay one night in This hotel before catching a train.

A good inexpensive stay with a great location
I like this guest house. For a bargain budget it's right on target. Don't expect much, or any, frills. Your not paying for any. Breakfast is just so so and an extra 5£. Comfortable bed & super nice people run this ma & pa B&B.

A pleasant place to stay
The owner/hostess Mrs. Ali was quite pleasant and accommodating during our stay making available provisions for our odd flight schedule, but as spoken by previous reviewers upon entering the building there is a liberal aroma of curry. Seeing we were located on the second floor climbing the stairs did require some effort, although our room was generally pleasant and cozy it was somewhat tight on space. To be honest most of our days were spent enjoying all that Edinburgh had to offer, so our time in the room was primarily limited to sleeping. Her location is fairly close to a main road, making it convenient to use the city's mass transit ti get around.
