“Impeccable stay in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

All I can say is : wow. We stayed here initially for one night at the beginning of our stay on Scotland and reserved another night at the end of our stay. I have rarely stayed in a place that oozes with such care, taste, and class. And all this for such a reasonable price! The hosts of Adria House, Maria and her brother Eddie, are warm, knowledgable, and... Incredible hosts! Eddie patiently answered our questions about the history of the building, and Maria took the time to fill us in on the things to do in the area. The rooms feel like "home" and the house itself is impeccable. Breakfast was delicious (choices of hot and cold). We stayed in a room that did not have an en suite bathroom but no matter - bathrobes were provided to us as well as a key to a private bathroom outside the room. All in all, an excellent stay and we recommend this place to anyone staying in Edinburgh.

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

A very well run guest house, huge room, excellent wi-fi but then again the booster was in our room, splendid architecture, very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Superb breakfast after which I don't think I needed to eat until dinner time! We had room 6 on the 2nd floor which faces the back and is not overlooked by any buildings. This meant that the room was wonderfully quiet and completely dark at night which meant that I slept like a log. Climbing back up to room 6 after such a fab breakfast was rather exhausting!
I suppose the only area that could do with improving was the ensuite which was quite tiny (but spotlessly clean) but with a shower curtain which I have a dislike for anyway - I think shower doors are much more effective and there's less likelihood of inconsiderate guests leaving the curtain outside the tray while showering. But now I'm being petty. I would definitely stay here again if I had the good luck to return to Edinburgh.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: For good sleep, choose a room at the back, e.g. Room 6. Quiet and very dark at night.

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!
