I arrived by mistake at this wonderful town house managed by its owner. I was very lucky to get a room at a great location. 10 min walking distance to the city center, a block away from a theater and 3 blocks from a beautiful park. In front of a bus stop with two lines straight to both New and...

My husband and I stayed for one night at this B&B for our Christmas celebration. It was a perfect location as it's located in the city centre within walking distance to restaurants and bars as well as the famous Prince's Street and George Street where all the shops are located. There's also a bus stop just a few step away...

We only stayed for two nights, but both were just what we expected. We were attending a concert at Murrayfield Stadium and the guest house was an ideal location for both this and the town centre, more or less exact distance for both, both of which we were able to walk. Owners were very friendly and accommodating and would definitely...

Son stayed at Burns Guest house for a few days prior to moving in to his Napier University housing. Guest House was very convenient to all the site-seeing and bus stops. The owners were very cooperative and helpful in the booking process and readily accommodated a late change when our son's move out time changed. Son reported that the room...

The policy of the b&b clearly states that on the day of your departure 'luggage storage is available' but when asked for the owner told me it was not possible because he was busy on that day. No discounts or alternative solutions were offered for the disservice. I would raccomand to ask in advance if you plan to leave your...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Burns Guest House. The owners were very friendly and offered very personal service. The location was also convenient - you could be in the centre of Edinburgh in twenty minutes, depending on how quickly you walk. There is also a supermarket five minutes' walking distance away. I will probably be visiting Edinburgh again in...

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

“Room 6 looked a lot nicer than the other rooms”

“The rooms at the front of the house are a little noisy due to the road, but once you find the shutters, the noise is almost completely blocked out!! Although some rooms don't have an en suite shower, the bathroom is only shared with one other room and has an excellent powerful shower.”

“We had a double ensuite room at the top of the house. I got the impression that rooms on lower floors had shared bathrooms. Our room overlooked the back garden, so was quite quiet”
