Edinburgh Central Guest House
Ranked #68 of 394 Edinburgh B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2017

Great little location tucked out of the way of lots of city noise. If you don't mind sharing a bathroom (you do at home anyway, don't you) or walking up a few flights of stairs (just like home) then this could be for you. Convenient for central Edinburgh and having a friendly feel. Maybe not the most modern accommodation but in keeping with the age of the property.

Room Tip: Check out access, bathroom and parking options when booking

Great location. Very helpful host. Nice and big room. Good continental breakfast. Thick enough walls :) I had a problem in a previous accommodation with bathroom ventilation. It made so much noise it was impossible to use it without waking others. This time there was also ventilation in bathroom but it was barely heard of in the room with door closed.
Some people could have a problem with stairs. Just a though.

Stayed one night with my mother while attending Royal Higjland Show. The room was really clean but had a shared bathroom which wasn't a problem. The couple who own the guest house were lovely and tje breakfast was very tasty.

This place is wonderful. Very good - but hidden - locations within easy walking distance from Waverley St. and shopping district. The rooms are nice and large (but without bathrooms/toilets) and the service wonderful. Great value.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this cozy place. Great selection of breakfast items, gluten free if you asked. Room was comfortable. Not excited about shared bathroom as it seemed constantly in use. A special thanks to the proprietor who was extremely helpful when I had a personal issue from home to deal with. Thank you.
