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.

I loved the location of this hotel. It was a quick tram into the city centre or a 20 minute walk. Right across the street from us was a little market and the airlink 100 to the airport which was really convenient. The only problem i had was with opening the door to our room every night but other than that. The room was a good size for 3 adults a 10 year and a baby. Would definitely recommend this to anyone

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.

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.

Firstly may I say that for accommodation in Edinburgh during August this was very reasonably priced. The building is clean and well thought out (effectively two terraced houses which have been converted). There is no reception but instead a keystore which you get the number for having called a number on the website. Make sure that you have a phone! I only had a single room on the top floor. It was tiny but just about functional. Breakfast was disappointing and in retrospect it would be easier to have room only and eat out. I only saw the odd cleaner in the morning so there wasn’t any real interaction with staff. It is well located and functional but that is it.

We were here for a short stay, but really loved the accommodations. A thing to note is that if you don't want to, you will not have much contact with the staff. There is a "self check-in", meaning you get a code to open your key-box Breakfast is simple, but then again it has pretty much everything you need (except for hot dishes). You will get some white and brown bread, gluten-free slices, bagels, some sweet buns, ham, cheese, an assortment of jams/jellies/marmalade, nutella, honey, cornflakes, yoghurt, fruit, tea and coffee. Our room was nice and spacious. We had a large bed, a desk, sofa and small table. There was also a fridge (always welcome), kettle and microwave. The bathroom was on the small side, you can brush your teeth whilst sitting on the toilet and could do with a little freshen up. The location of the hotel is also definitely ok. You are a 10 minute walk away from princess street, and maybe 30 minutes from old town. Close to public transportation

Good value for money, not in centre but tram on the doorstep, communal areas encourages chats with other guests .

We enjoyed our stay but booking through Agoda meant we didnt get confirmation email and key code from owner. Led to slight hitch on arrival but quickly resolved. Only criticism would be that no tea bags/coffee in rooms, wouldnt cost a lot and we really needed a cuppa after battling through the gales last weekend.
