Henry Higgins (the guy in My Fair Lady) would have loved this place. I know we did. Beautiful art + personalized service + fine evening dining. Great breakfast too, including a vegetarian option. Some rooms share large bathrooms. Other than that, it's 5 star living at a 2 star price. Great location - a few minutes to city center by...

My husband and I stayed here for one night during our trip to Edinburgh and the Fringe. It was more than sleeping in a museum, it was sleeping in between someone's passion and life's work, it was meeting eye to eye with sensitive and intelligent people and prized artworks that have long risen above the status of mere objects. I...

Thank you. The warmth of your feedback as a Scotsman is a little difficult to respond to. I hope that we were able to make your night in Edinburgh Fringe Festival period one of being a good memory, in a time where everyone is looking for activity and noise we sometimes forget that quiet is equal in its importance. Yours...

We stayed at the Morita Bed & Breakfast for one night during the Fringe Festival in Edinburgh. Really an amazing place, incomparable to any other hostel. Art, paintings, porcelain everywhere. In our clean and cosy Twinroom have been 35 paintings from different periods. Lovely & charming landlords that run this hostel and provide you information, hints and are open for...

My husband and I toured the UK in June. We will never forget the warm hospitality we received from John and Kozo.They showed us how to get around by bus and even took us to see where the laundromat was.They are such interesting people to talk to. Every inch of the house is covered in magnificent Scottish paintings and beautiful...

We really have a great stay in Edinburgh, especially the staying at Art House Morita. I would definitely visit there again if I am going there: ) I am really surprised to see the owner's dedication in running the place, which can be seen in every detail. All the facilities and appliances are in good quality. Once you walk in...

This is an unusual hotel and is also a museum and home. If you like an entirely dull, predictable hotel stay (with a TV and en suite), don't stay here. But, if you are the sort who likes to remember special experiences - then this will be one for you. From the moment you walk to the door, you will...

Emma, Thank you for the very kind comments and especially the detail in the feedback, I think your should give up Civil Engineering and become a travel writer, I did read through your comments and did not realise about the frosted glass, I have now added a near full lenght roller blind which I hope solves any concerns over the...

Feels like coming home. Morita is museum, vacation, restful, homely and character all rolled into one. It has a charm that will bring us back to the wonderful hosts and their accomodating, caring attitude. Surely the highlight of the accomodation around Scotland. I found this a place worth remembering.

“Because its only 3 rooms you can pay by cash or PayPal. My top tip is that if you do want to book, contact them directly to get the best price (as then they don't pay the agents commission).”
