My family had a superb stay at Adria House. Our room was very comfortable, the food was tasty (the best coffee on our UK trip), and our host, Maria, was very accommodating. We will definitely stay there again the next time we are in Edinburgh.

This review was long overdue, but I just can’t let it go. We stayed in Adria House in Nov 2012. Still the best B&B we ever stayed at a reasonable price. Communication was prompt and all queries addressed. Maria patiently gave us direction when our GPS failed to guide us to the B&B because of road closure and diversion due to extensive road works in the city. We stayed in a twin bedroom at the ground level with private key access to our own bathroom. Our comfortable room was very spacious, elegantly and tastefully decorated from floor to ceiling, and the classical wall covering reflected truly Edinburgh's rich Georgian heritage. Free Wi-Fi was very efficient. The freshly prepared Scottish breakfast also included a selection of cereals, fruits, yoghurts and cheese. Though Royal Terrace is a cobbled street, the pedestrian pavement provided an easy walk along the slope. There was restricted metered parking on weekdays, however, overnight parking was free. It was centrally located about 15 minute walk to Waverley Train Station and a good start to explore Edinburgh's famous cultural and historical landmarks. Edward and Maria were friendly, very helpful, and accommodating. They kept our luggage after check-out and we did more sightseeing and shopping. At night we came back to refresh and rest at the Guests' TV Lounge before we left Edinburgh on a night train to London. Truly a top-notch B&B in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: There was no problem for us to have our own separate private bathroom with key access to it just out...

Adria is a beautiful house located in a "strategic" place: a very quiet and clean neighborhood just 10 minutes away from the Royal Mile (walking). The house is superb, the owners are very kind and helpful, the rooms are very big and clean, breakfast is excellent. If you get downtown with Airlink 100 you can easily reach Adria House with a 15 minutes walk or a 5 minutes taxi drive.
EXCELLENT!!!

Adria House is the best place i found in Edinburgh. This beautiful house is warm and welcoming. This is a very cosy and traditional building, greatly situated 10 min away from downtown by foot, very close to main points (Avis desk, Playhouse Theatre, pubs and restaurants, The Royal Mile ...). The rooms are huge, very clean and if you have the chance to have the garden view, you'll enjoy the beautiful backyard, very quiet. High ceilings with amazing stucco everywhere, you will be delighted by the historical character of the building. Very nicely decorated, it is a pleasure staying in this house. The house offers an amazing breakfast, perfect for tourists about to walk the whole day in the city. Last but not least, the kindness of the owners will make you feel at home in the Adria House. Their passion for Edinburgh is contagious, and my only regret was not spending more days there. This place is the best value in town. I strongly recommend it for your holidays!

We booked Adria after reviewing where to stay on Trip Advisor, we were very pleased with our choice. We arrived early and were given a room straight away. The bathroom was huge! The house has been in the same family for some years and Eddy and Marie were most helpful. The house is beautiful. The location is right at the foot of Calton Hill which is a must for photographers. The walk into the city centre is circa 10 to 15 mins stroll or less than £5 taxi ride. A good breakfast is provided. Nice porridge, watch out is a large portion!

We stayed at Adria House for two nights and just wish it could have been for longer. Our room was lovely with the most beautiful bathroom. The house is very elegant and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was both plentiful and delicious. Maria, Edward and Eddie were the most attentive, helpful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Adria House was a real find in the best location and at a very reasonable price. We can not recommend this Adria House enough. Thank you so much for two brilliant days. We hope to stay with you again sometime.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 5 which is at the top of the house. Lots of stairs but well worth it, the staircas...

I cannot say enough about this wonderful guest house. It may be listed as a 3 star but it is 5 star all the way. Beautifully restored Georgian home in the new town alongside Carlton Hill and just a 15 minute walk from Waverley train station and to the Royal Mile, it's setting alone is amazing. Eddie and Maria, the brother/sister team that operates it, are nothing short of fabulous. They bent over backwards to accomodate us and our travel plans. And I tihnk that it is Maria's husband that gets much of the credit for the impeccable upkeep. A substantial and delicious breakfast is included and is served in a sumptuous dining room. There is an equally appointed sitting room to relax by the fire and surf the net if you do not have your own device. And the gardens and views from the front and back rooms are stellar. Simply put, you just have to stay here !

Room Tip: We had a room with an ensuite and enjoyed that privacy.
