Picture the traditional bed & breakfast all dolled up in lipstick and heels while sipping on a snazzy cocktail and you get the idea of what B+B Edinburgh offers.
Basically, you can enjoy the stylishness of a boutique hotel blended with the hominess of a B&B. So, for instance, a scrumptious all-inclusive breakfast in the morning and a chic bar to relax with a martini in the evening.
In other words, it’s bed & breakfast with a 21st century makeover.
Try it out for yourself with today’s Big Deal for an overnight stay at B+B Edinburgh, with a bottle of wine and chocolates on arrival plus a late checkout included.

B+B Edinburgh has an excellent overall score of 4.5/5 on TripAdvisor, based on over 800 reviews. Take a look at this praise from recent guests, edited for shortness:
‘Great place and great find…we stayed in a family room on the 3rd floor which had a king size bed and a pull out sofa bed for the kids, tv, an en-suite and a huge bath…it was very quiet and the room had a nice view. The location was great, about 15 min walk from Princes St but the bus links are very good and only about a 5 min walk onto the main road to catch one. The B+B offered snacks and drinks from the bar and the drinks were really reasonable prices we thought. Last but not least the breakfast was good with plenty to choose from. I would definitely stay here again.’
‘Our travel agent recommended this place for our short stay in Edinburgh, and we are grateful she did! What a great place to stay. Historic building. Great neighbourhood. Conveniently located. Near to some great restaurants. Eva K the manager took great care of us, and made some excellent local recommendations. It had all the convenience of a great hotel, but with the atmosphere of being at home.’
‘Nice cute hotel on quiet street. Doesn’t matter if your room is front or back. Short walk to Princes Street and even shorter to tram stop. Hotel to airport took us 25 minutes by tram. They are every 10 minutes. Room was clean, with kettle for your use or grab a free tea or coffee from reception, nice full breakfast cooked to your order. Friendly helpful staff.’
