Stayed for 3 nights during the Fringe and it was the perfect place for easy access to the centre of Edinburgh. The rooms were really clean and spacious and the feature ceilings were a delight. Breakfast was delicious and served until 10am which was ideal having had late nights. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Would definitely stay here...

We had a wonderful stay in this very comfortable and friendly guest house. Fantastic bus links into town - never more than a couple of minutes wait. The food was excellent and really good vegetarian options. I will be coming again.

Excellent B&B just 10 minutes with bus from city centre. Really clean, plenty of space in the family room on the first floor, just above the dinning area. The room has it owns bathroom, small but does the job. All in all very satisfied, will definitely consider on our next trip to Edinburgh!

It's a 30 minute walk, or 5 minute bus ride (bus stop across the road) into Edinburgh city centre The rooms are good with internet access. Wide selection of choice for breakfast which was very good. Very friendly, with Itziar and her staff being more than helpful. Great B & B, and will definitely come her again next time I...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Alba Hills. Being on some main bus routes into the city made travel to and fro very easy especially with the handy note they gave about which buses to catch. Great location at the East end of the city. Staff very eager to help in every way.
