“Great location, value, hosts and atmosphere!”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

We had a lovely two night stay at Adria House in mid-April. We walked easily there from Waverly Train Station and to all of the Old Town sights. The hosts are gracious and friendly, and the rooms are nicely decorated and clean. We requested a room facing the street so that we could catch a glimpse of the Firth of Forth and a private bath rather than a en-suite room to save a few pounds. We regretted neither of those requests. Since we were on the first floor, it really was just a glimpse of water through the then leafless trees. Probably, a better view would have been had from the next floor up, but our stair climb was easy and the street traffic did not bother us at all. The private bath was large and close-by. It did not feel awkward at all using it, especially wearing the fluffy robes that were provided for us. I definitely would recommend this establishment!

Edward and Maria are friendly and helpful hosts and the hotel is well located for The Playhouse(our main choice for choosing) and all Edinburghs attractions. Room was absolutely gorgeous, tastefully decorated and spotless. View from our window was just breathtaking.
Enjoyed the choice of breakfast, will definately be back again. Cant praise the Adria enough.

As soon as we walk in we received a very warm welcome from Edward who kindly talk us through the best bits of Edinburgh. We stayed in the family room of 4 (2 twins, 1 double) which were sumptuous, very high ceiling with tall windows that made the room very bright. It's in great condition, carpet and paint seemed brand new.
It is very well located, around 5-10 mins to the town centre and right by a hill that oversees the whole town (definitely worth going).
We were on road side, so the cobble road may be a bit noisy when cars drive by but it didn't stop us sleeping well.
Finally, the breakfast was excellent and we actually looked forward to it in each evening!
Top marks!

The staff could not have been more helpful or kind. Breakfasts were outstanding - esp the porridge. The veiws from the room to the amazing gardens were a highlight - I only wish we could have seen them close up! Thank you to the avid gardeners. It was within walking distance to everything. The beds were wee (ie short)- and we are both quite short people! This was the only down-side. The room was gracious and huge, and the bathroom was a decent size (not like many you find which are tiny) We would recommend this lovely place to friends.
