B+B Edinburgh

B+B Edinburgh

Edinburgh, The UK

B+B Edinburgh is an elegant Georgian townhouse just a 15-minute walk from Princes Street. The property is part of a crescent-shaped terrace, and its interior has been tastefully refurbished to complement this classic exterior. Rooms are contemporary, placing Scottish purples alongside sleek whites and grays, with Scottish artwork on the walls. A large, grand spiral staircase ascends from the high-ceilinged entrance hall (there’s also a lift). Breakfast is a continental buffet or cooked meal, and staff are happy to recommend nearby places to eat as the hotel doesn’t serve lunch and evening meals. Guests can make use of a well-appointed lounge with bar and a beautiful old-fashioned two-story library with a moving ladder for reaching the highest books.

OUR OPINION:

This is a beautiful, great-value option in central Edinburgh, if you don’t need the full facilities of a hotel. We love the views toward characterful Dean Village from the dining room.

Rooms

All the room types are very similar in decor, only varying in size, bed configuration and layout. Furnishings are contemporary, and the paint scheme pairs the light purple of Scottish heather with grays and whites. The third and fourth-floor rooms have lovely views out toward Dean Village. All rooms have en suite bathrooms with a bath or shower, flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi access.

Location

B+B Edinburgh is in a quiet, residential part of Edinburgh’s New Town, just a 15-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of Princes Street, with several coffee shops and boutique stores along the route. In the other direction is Dean Village, whose striking buildings sit on the shore of the Water of Leith.

Food and drink

A full Scottish breakfast or cold buffet selection is served in the grand dining room, which has wooden floors and wood-paneled walls, a huge fireplace and great views toward Dean Village. The property doesn’t have a restaurant, but staff are very happy to recommend eating establishments in the local vicinity. There’s a small and intimate bar on the first floor.

Facilities and activities

Wi-Fi is complimentary throughout the hotel. On the first floor, you can use the tea and coffee-making machine throughout the day. Daily newspapers are available in the entrance hall.
