Clean room, comfortable bed, reasonable price
Clean and nice, comfortable bed, very good breakfast selection. Host is very helpful and informative. Sink in bathroom is so small it is difficult not to spill water when using it. Residential location is about 1/2 hour walk to Royal Mile. There are frequent buses, stopping very close to Martin's, which go to Princes street.

A very good guesthouse
We enjoyed our all to brief stay at Martin's Guesthouse. Excellent service, very good breakfast. Could choose between 6-7 alternatives, all freshly prepared. Nice room, the bathroom was perhaps a tad small, but fully functional.I would definitively try to get a room here the next time we are back in Edinburgh.
