Budget B&B with Budget Feel - "Private Bathroom" was outside”

Pros: Low cost, Location 20 min walk or 5 min bus ride to center city; fast wi-fi Cons: The worst was that the "private bathroom" was not in the room at all. I had to go outside the room and unlock the bathroom with a key; Not especially clean - chair had stains, remote had gobs of dust on it, walls were dirty; Very hard mattress (honestly felt like a wooden box) and stiff bedding; very cold (I slept in two sweaters, a hat, and gloves); old furniture in disrepair - headboard and TV frame were split apart; TV did not have a signal; door to dining room for breakfast was locked at 8am on Saturday...don't know when breakfast started. I knew I wasn't getting luxury, but I was taken aback at how little care they've taken. This might be OK for a student or folks who just want a place to sleep. There are probably much better options, even on the same street. I purposefully stayed out late each night so that I wouldn't have to do more than go to sleep there.

Well run, professional and friendly.”

Really enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh at the blossom, it's well run with friendly staff, good quality breakfast, help with local knowledge on how to get around and extremely close to the main attractions. I highly recommend it to any travellers going for a short or extended stay. Only small improvement required would be to the wifi stability. Thanks for the hassle free stay. Regards Craig

The B&B was adequate- nothing special.”

Owners were kind, room was clean, location was quiet.

Blossom Guest House was situated too far away from the center for easy walking to the major attractions. There are numerous buses one can use to get into town. There are many second hand shops near the B&B, which I found interesting.

Pulizia - accoglienza staff - location tranquilla

Ho trascorso 4 giorni a Edimburgo e il soggiorno e' stato più che soddisfacente. Le camere sono piccole ma dotate di ogni genere di confort. La padrona di casa e' una persona cordiale e molto gentile: si è occupata lei di prenotare il taxi che ci ha portato in aeroporto alle 5 del mattino e si è anche offerta di farci trovare i cornetti caldi per la colazione. La guest house dista 2.5km dal centro ma è facilmente raggiungibile con i mezzi di trasporto.
