Feeling At Home
The Classic Guest House is a very nice place to stay. The owner is a super kind and thoughtful man of manners, e was available for everything we needed always answering with a smile. The environment was very chilled and cozy, good cleaning level and beautiful place for breakfast. I really liked it and it is quite close to the center as well, so that we could take a nice walk and enjoy the sun or take the bus if in a hurry.

Una Experiencia De 10!
El edificio tiene mucho encanto. La habitación es preciosa, no se aprecia lo espaciosa que es en la foto. Muebles de madera ( no aglomerado), tres mesitas de noche , una cómoda y armario. Un gustazo para poder guardar todo sin necesidad de dejar nada dentro de la maleta La limpieza es de 10, pero no solo en la habitación, en todas las instalaciones. Desde que entras por la puerta huele a limpio. El desayuno muy completo y la sala donde se dá te lo hace disfrutar aún más. Además los anfritiones muy pendientes siempre por si necesitas algo más. Volveré y lo recomendaré sin dudarlo. No cambieis, habéis hecho que nuestra estancia en Edimburgo tenga un plus extra que no esperábamos. Muchas gracias!

Nice Room-small Bathroom-limited Parking
Very competitive parking environment. Commuters are deterred with requirements for resident parking stickers, leaving guests to search for the few remaining spaces. About two miles to city center, so a bus or taxi is advised. Have exact change!! The room was very nice, but the bathroom was very tight...don't drop the soap in the shower! Breakfast was adequate, a continental breakfast served in a very welcoming sunroom with views of a lush garden.

Schönes Gasthaus
Wir waren für einen Kurztrip in Edinburgh und haben in diesem Gasthaus 3 Tage verbracht. Der Hausherr war wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Zimmer war zwar etwas kleiner,aber dafür sauber und sehr schnuckelig eingerichtet . Die Stadt ist mit dem Bus in ca. 10 Minuten zu erreichen. Zu Fuß, ist man ca.30 Minuten unterwegs. Alles in allem sind wir rundum zufrieden gewesen :) Wir würden aufjedenfall wiederkommen und können das Gasthaus nur empfehlen.

They are hospitable, kind and accommodating. Nothing was to much trouble. A massive bed room and en-suite bathroom that was clean, tidy, warm. Comfortable beds, which were extremely welcoming after a long day walking around the city. A lovely breakfast in a pretty conservatory, with great selection of cheeses, pastries, fruit and yoghurt on offer.

I need to stay somewhere at the last minute in Edinburgh, after searching for 1/2 hour on and finding only rooms with shared bathroom or dormitory's I came across Classic House.

We had a 3 night stay for 2 adults and one child in the family room. The room was big, very comfortable, clean and had a good toiletry selection. The manager was very welcoming and approachable and greeted us with a bottle of water each. The breakfast was a varied continental selection of meats, cheese, eggs, cereal, yogurts,oat cakes,toast, loads of variety of fresh fruit,juices,tea/coffee, nutella, pancakes, pastries, coissants etc. Something to please everyone. The young lady serving the drinks/toast was the most pleasant host that I have ever been served by..I wish everyone had a smile like she had.

When we left it was raining and the manager gave us an umbrella for free. I would definitely stay here again and I would highly recommend this guest house. Easy access to all bus routes into town and lots of nearby places to eat.

All We Needed During Our Stay, And A Lot More!
We travelled as a group of 4 adults and spent a weekend in Edinburgh. Classic House has comfortable and traditionally furnished double and family rooms, a cosy breakfast room, where warm and hot food is served every morning by the hosts of the guesthouse.

We enjoyed our daily morning walk towards the city centre, which was around 20 minutes long; we enjoyed the residential neighbourhood in which Classic House is located, and we also enjoyed the nearly independent restaurant and traditional pubs, which make Edinburgh so special.

I would definitely recommend any guest to choose Classic House, and I would choose to stay again at Classic House during my next trip to Edinburgh!

Edinburgh Accommodation.
The Classic Guest House provided us with a small double room at an excellent price. The room had an en-suite, tv and tea/coffee making facilities. Though a small room, it had everything we required including a very comfortable bed. Their conservatory acted as the breakfast room and was very pleasant. The owner and his wife were very nice people, friendly and attentive and this is somewhere we will certainly come back to.

We have enjoyed the two nights stay in Classic House. A warm welcome from the friendly owner who gave us directly all kind of useful tips such as places for the busses to the city center, maps and other tourist tips. The beds are superb and the breakfast is top class.

If you choose a budget room be careful not to take big sized luggage to the room because the stairs to the second floor is pretty small.

Very Charming - And Best Bus Connections
We had a stay at Edinburgh for three days, and it was beautiful. The accommodation was right like it's described, You get the same things like in a hotel, but with familiar atmosphere. People/staff are very nice, our room had a garden sight and it was very quiet in the nights. Breakfast was excellent, the Garden room is nice and light - it's a pleasure to sit there.

The bus station is right in the neighbourhood, it takes less than ten minutes to the royal mile. You will find everything worth to be seen in Edinburgh, the landlord will give you any information you need.

Our stay was especially good because of the fine weather we got - may be you're lucky as we were. ;-)

Very friendly and helpful owners, nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast, which is continental, was extremely well stocked.

Accomodation is a short bus ride from the centre or about a 30/40 minute walk. You are close enough to enjoy the city but far enough out so that it isn't roudy.

Would certainly stay again and definitiely recommoned to others.

We stayed here with friends when visiting Edinburgh recently, we were in Room 6 which was very compact at the top of a flight of stairs, room very quaint with slanted roof, en suite was extremely small although manageable for a couple of days, the host Emad was so lovely and extremely welcoming and recommended a number of places to eat "The Old Bell Inn" was faboululous the Balmoral Chicken is a must try! Edinburgh city about 25 minute stroll away but not too strenuous, breakfast was plentiful with lots of choice, didn't miss having a full English, lovely and clean would recommend for a few days but would struggle with size of bathroom for longer!

Young Couple Stay Close To Edinburgh Centre
When we were first looking at where to stay in Edinburgh in the summer, we found that hotel prices were very high and decided to go for a guest house.

This particular one was very comfortable. We had a top floor small room. The breakfast was enough: eggs, cereal, pancakes, porridge, cold meats, cheese, fruit. Very friendly staff at all times.

We also enjoyed the neighborhood of the guest house and its proximity to the centre - frequent buses running with less than a 10 min ride.

Would recommend it for a short 3-4 day stay for those who would like to explore Edinburgh :)

Beyond Satisfied
We genuinely enjoyed our stay at the Classic Guest House. We felt very welcome, found the room comfortable and found the Guest House amazing value for our four-night stay during the Festival.

We genuinely appreciated the little thoughtful touches such as the converter for continental electric plugs, coffee and tea making facilities in the room.

The room was well appointed, clean and cleaned daily. Everything was well maintained and worked. Our room was on the attic floor. The staircase to the attic was quite narrow and steep, we did not find this problematic but it could be an issue to people with mobility problems. The roof window in our room had a perfect blind and we slept very well. We could hear some light traffic noise but this did not bother us.

The breakfast beat the standard of many hotels - cereal, fruit, croissants, three types of fruit juice, muffins, pancakes, toast and a generous cooked breakfast to top it all off.

The centre is a good walk away, which we did not mind. The nearby 42 bus runs at 20-30 min intervals but there are very frequent buses from Minto St some 7 minutes walk from the Classic.

Overall we were extremely happy to have found the Classic and would not hesitate in the slightest to stay there again.

The staff are friendly and helpful, they even wrote the local bus numbers on a map, before we could even ask, so that we knew which buses to look out for when we was out and about (It's all about thr little things!). The rooms were spotless and spacious and we honestly couldn't pick a fault with them. The cooked breakfast was spot on, and there was a selection of cereals etc as well. The whole place was tidy and well looked after, and the staff obviously took pride in their work. All in all a great place to stay.

Bandb Extraordinaire!
What a fantastic guest house! Emad and Fiona truly know how to make a person feel welcome. They were kind, generous with information, showed us how to use the bus routes to and from city centre and gave us the lay of the land. The room was a bit cramped, but that was because my friend and I had enough luggage for a small caravan of gypsies. Breakfast was delicious, served at reasonable hours, and when we couldn't get out of bed on time due to too much evening fun, food was offered to us anyway.

Nikki, who cleaned the rooms, is also a magical masseuse who managed to quickly turn our hangovers into a bad memory.

I highly recommend Classic House as a wonderful place to stay while enjoying the sights of Edinburgh.

Home Away From Home
I loved it here. The proprietors are lovely people who are hospitable in a way I appreciate very much. They make sure you get what you need, as far as they can provide it, then let a guest do as she will. The house is impeccably kept and I slept like a babe because it was so quiet and safe there. Breakfast was cooked by specifications of each guest, and there was always a smile to send everyone on their way each morning. I couldn't ask for a better resting place after a day of walking and climbing and what all.

The only thing I could wish for would be a laundry service, but then I might be obsessive compulsive about clothes that were splattered by rain. Everybody else seemed to live very happily with theirs.

Very nice room. The furnishing was so well put together with great taste. Everything was very clean. Great breakfast and loved the classical music during it.. the breakfast room was happily situated in a consrvatory facing a beautiful garden, so tidy that reflected all the standards and good taste. The service was good and balanced. Friendly, but not noisy. The only thing that was a little bit uncomfortable was the bathroom outside the room, as one of us had flu and had to wake up and change the room to go to the toilet. I guess though, was the only room like that. I definitely suggest this guest house to my family and friends and acquaintances.

The facilities at Classic House are beautifully appointed and very comfortable and the breakfasts cater for every taste, from delicious, fresh croissants and fruit compote to a wonderful full Scottish plate that would put Desperate Dan to shame, all served by the owners and a lovely friendly waitress in the delightful conservatory. We recommend this hotel unreservedly and will certainly ensure that this was not an isolated visit.

Perfect Weekend.
Spent a marvellous couple of days in Edinburgh in July, 2012. Thank you to all at the Classic Guesthouse for making us feel so welcome. We enjoyed our stay immensely, accommodation was beautiful, spotlessly clean. Flat screen t.v. in room which was super so we were able to enjoy the olympics. Enjoyed our lovely breakfast every morning and the staff were so friendly and accommodating at all times. Will be back and would certainly recommend staying at the Classic.

Refreshing and very comfortable. There was a hitch with our room (I was visiting with my niece and we had booked a twin room) but with no hesitation, we were moved to an extremely comfortable self catering apartment just around the block. Going over for our breakfast every morning was no problem at all and the warmth and welcome we received from our host was worth it. Definitely recommend.

The Classic Is Perfect
We'll return to the perfectly-run Classic Guest House repeatedly and have recommended it to all our friends. Our first stay was three nights in an elegant, comfortable room en suite and our second was 2 weeks later in another equally pleasant room with private bath, the night before leaving Scotland.

The conservatory is beautiful with its garden view and the extensive breakfasts are delicious.

The location in New Town is on a main bus route but we could easily walk to the Royal Mile. Arthur's Seat was well in sight of our room.

Do visit the Old Bell pub and restaurant-- a neighborhood place within a shirt stroll. Shops and coffee houses aee all close, too.

The service was perfect, too. The owner arranged our 4 a.m. Cab to the airport and brought us a fine Continental beeakfast.

Great Stay
I loved the Classic House. Affordable, clean, comfortable, and wonderful service. It was a 10-20 minutes trip to the city center with the bus and a quick walk, but that was enjoyable too.

The Museum of Scotland is a striking and impressive achievement, beautifully framed by its surroundings, by Edinburgh's Old and New Towns, and the landscape beyond. From the Museum's roof-top garden visitors will have an unrivalled view of the historical as well as architectural context of the new building. Edinburgh Castle , Greyfriars Kirk, the Scott Monument , the spires and pinnacles of the city, the sea, and the hills beyond interact with the new museum, reinforcing its role as a central point in the nation's heritage, a protector of Scotland 's treasures. In 1991 architects Benson + Forsyth were selected as winners of the architectural competition to design the new Museum of Scotland .

A majestic landmark which dominates the capital city's skyline just as it has dominated Scotland's long and colourful history. Edinburgh Castle is the best known and most visited of Historic Scotland's buildings. Perched on an extinct volcano and offering stunning views, this instantly recognisable fortress is a powerful national symbol, and part of Edinburgh's World Heritage Site. A rich mix of architectural styles reflects the castle's complex history and role as both stronghold and seat of Kings. The tiny St Margaret's Chapel, Edinburgh's oldest building, dates from the 1100s.

This is an example of an early high-rise which housed diverse social classes. The merchant and his family would have lived in two of the apartments while the others would have been rented to another merchant, a minister, a knight and a guild officer.Gladstone's Land provides a unique opportunity to experience how people lived and worked in Edinburgh's Old Town over 300 years ago. The merchant's home features a remarkable painted ceiling, wall decoration, fine furnishings and a fascinating kitchen. On the ground floor, shop booths have been recreated in their original setting, complete with merchandise.

Edinburgh is the breathtakingly beautiful capital of Scotland, an exciting place to visit at any time of year. Edinburgh offers you superb sightseeing, historic buildings to explore, quiet galleries and museums to intrigue you, thrilling new attractions to discover, serious shopping, a vast choice of excellent Restaurants, Bistros, Wine Bars, Pubs and Cafes, and nightlife to suit all tastes. When the Picts built a fort on a volcanic crag in the 5th century, to protect Scotland from the invading Angles of Northumberland, Edinburgh's history began. The present Castle, was built on the site by Michael Canmore (1057-93); his wife St. Margaret, built the chapel which you can still visit today.
