Perfect base for exploring Edinburgh.”

The location of this place, directly across the road from Haymarket station, makes it the perfect location for visiting Edinburgh or surrounding areas. The room was a good size with a very comfortable bed. The shower/toilet wa very small and a little worn out, but functional and adequate. The breakfast room is lovely and airy with a very relaxed homely feel. The owner and staff were extremely helpful and sorted a minor issue immediately. I’d definitely recommend My Edinburgh Life and will look to stay again.

Cosy little room over the garden”

Fringe time in Edinburgh so prices are higher than normal but otherwise a warm and homely place to stay, very friendly and helpful staff. A small but very cosy little single bedded room overlooking the garden. I was very comfortable here - near Haymarket station and a pleasant 1/2 hour walk to the centre. Would definitely return for a repeat visit

Great location, excellent breakfast and comfy bed...but”

A few faults with my original room had me being moved to another room, but both rooms were clean, warm and secure. Bed was comfy and room was dark and quiet, so good sleep. Didn't see any staff - all done via text, until the morning and saw one girl who I spoke to about directions as I was in Edinburgh for a course. Breakfast was continental and was amazing! Fabulous selection and lots of it! However, after arriving at night to check in, then having to find another room, didn't really encourage a relaxing start to my stay, but it was resolved fairly quickly. However, I do believe most guest houses/b&b's really should be checking their rooms thoroughly to make sure everything is working properly - my issue was electrics and locks on my first room, which I would think would be easy enough to check before the guest arrives, but wasn't, so that was the disappointment along with having to contact the owner and wait until a room was found for me, so hence not a relaxing start.

Very good location.”

The property is right across Haymarket Station: accessible via train, tram and bus. It was disappointing that the room we booked described it as having 5 separate single beds but the actual room only had 3 beds: 1 queen and 2 sofa beds. Contacted the owner/manager and I was informed that the description in Agoda was wrong as the property does not have any single bed. Despite this, it was still a comfortable stay. Additional info for future guests: the rooms are 1 floor below and the stairs are a tiny bit winding. Just a note for those travelling with big suitcases.
