    Lovely place to stay. Good location on the outskirts of the city - we walked in to the city centre a couple of times which took about 30mins. On the times we were feeling less energetic, the b&b is on a main bus route where you only have to wait a couple of minutes between buses. The room we had was an economy double which was really comfortable and worth the price, although there was no shower in our room. If there had been availability, we probably would have upgraded to one of the 'non- economy' doubles as these looked extremely good from what we saw, but we booked the day before arrival so these were already full. The owner was really helpful and provided a good choice of breakfast in the morning. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend this b&B.

    We were in the top floor of the b&b and so there were a quite a few stairs to the room. In addition, our room didn't have a shower due to the ceiling height, but the bath was quick to fill and a decent size which more than compensated for this. I think that was why it was the 'economy double', but it definitely wouldn't put me off staying in the same room again.

    Having read the previous guest comments I had a very high expectation of Alba House but wasn't dissapointed. The welcome was warm and personal. The room couldn't be faulted, huge windows, lots of space and great toiletries, and for my other half - free Wi-Fi connection, large telly and power shower. So we were both happy and would recommend this place anytime.

    We stayed in the two bedroom (and two bathroom) apartment as opposed to the b&B. It was a great apartment in a superb location. Cafes and bars on the doorstep but still very quiet. All main tourist attractions within an easy walk and a tesco express right around the corner. Lovely proprietor who provided all the information we needed for our stay. Would definately recommend it to others and stay there again.

    The owners were lovely and made us feel very welcomed and were helpful with our enquiries throughout. We had the economy double on the top floor which was really lovely with good views. Lacked a shower, but bath and jug was more than adequate for a few nights (and quite novel!). Breakfast was lovely too. Location is brilliant - just outside city - a 30 minute walk in or a short bus ride from right outside thehotel (take change!). Have stayed in many places in Edinburgh and this is by far our favourite and where we will be staying on future visits.

    Nothing..... loved it here!

    I like this family like hotel, typical Scotland breakfast, old house with beautiful garden, convenient transportation to downtown, and last but not least, very friendly hostess.

    The landlady was extremely hospitable. Breakfast was delicious. The B+B house was spacious and elegant. The location was ideal for us, especially as there was a frequent bus service from across the road.

    Our room was smaller than I would have liked, with a sloping ceiling. As we are both tall, we frequently banged our heads on the ceiling! However it was bright, airy and very clean with good facilities.

    Very friendly owners who did their best to enhance our stay. Great breakfasts! We were given an upgrade of room with a really comfortable super-king sized bed and en-suite. It was very nicely decorated and spotless, with all you need when away from home. It's in a nice area of the city with frequent buses passing the door to and from Princes Street. We will definitely return to this hotel.
