I recently stayed at 53 Frederick Street on a night out with some friends. I was given a beautiful room with a fantastic huge shower room. Both Tessa and David were extremely helpful and friendly. With the castle, George street and princes street on your doorstop - I can't recommend more.

We booked 3 nights in September, rushed to arrive in the hotel's unusually short, awkward reception time, and were appalled at the rundown condition of the place. Up three flights of cold, unadorned, prison-gray stairs, the reception area is just as grim, tired old threadbare carpeting, furniture that looks like it came directly from a charity shop in the 1980s,...

Guest tried to cancel booking 3 days before arrival. She then tried to modify to 1 day. Cancellation policy still applied. Myself & 2 staff were on premises. She knocked on the closed office door. Which has a sign and bell saying, press if assistance required! We refunded the whole stay as she was very unhappy & provided free breakfast!...

6 of us stayed here for my boyfriends birthday for 3 nights and it was great. Tess and her boyfriend and her brother were really welcoming, fun and very helpful.

While traveling in Scotland with my father, wife, and two teenage daughters, I was considering getting two rooms at an Edinburgh hotel. I'm so glad I kept looking and found 53 Fredrick Street B&B. For less than 2 rooms at a budget hotel, we were able to get a family room that was more spacious than I was expecting. It...

My husband and I stayed here for a total of 7 nights during our trip. The New Town location was perfect and we were able to walk to everything.

We had a 4 night stay in this hotel and found it very comfortable and welcoming. Tessa was on reception when we arrived and offered help with the suitcase if required. There are 69 steps from the front door to the top floor rooms so the reception and lounge half way up are a welcome break for anyone who needed...

This home is a lovely Georgian flat in a residential area of new town, Edinburgh. The room was just as advertised, large and quite beautiful! I agree with Tessa on the review below it sounds as though the couple were looking for something more modern. The family have decorated their home in keeping with the building with the traditional style...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

“Our room was facing the back of the building, had great big windows and a nice breeze to fill the room when we wished. We had two king beds for three adults and were very comfortable. Good towels and shower. Hair dryer in the room and a convenient multi-plug power strip for charging your phones, razor, etc. ”

“We had the room with separate bathroom/toilet, which we were aware of at completion of booking and was reflected in price and did not cause an issue. This had been the only room left when booking. The only negative was the location of the room, due to noise from the lively street below. On any further stays I would chose a room at the rear of the property. As other people have said there are a fair few stairs but unless you have limited mobility this should not deter you from choosing this Bed & Breakfast. All in all a lovely stay in a fantastic city. ”
