Edinburgh Caledonian Guest House
Edinburgh Caledonian Guesthouse, located in the desirable Merchiston area of Edinburgh approximately 1 mile south-west of Princes Street, underwent a major refurbishment in 2014 and has been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated to provide guests with a truly relaxing, peaceful and comfortable experience at competitive prices. The historic Edinburgh city centre can be reached on foot by walking along the nearby Union Canal, where barges and modern architecture mingle seamlessly. Further along you will reach Fountainbridge, Edinburgh s central business district, and boyhood home to the legendary 007 himself, Sir Sean Connery (or Big Tam, as he is affectionately known in these parts). Edinburgh also has a truly world class bus service, recently voted the best in Europe. Buses leave frequently from a stop less than 100 yards from our front door, and a day ticket for just £3.50 allows you unlimited travel throughout the day and a great opportunity to explore this remarkable city at your pace and leisure. Our rooms are immaculately presented, and have all been refurbished to the highest standards. Brand new beds, mattresses, linen and furniture are complimented with wall-hung flatscreen televisions, elegant tea/coffee making facilities and generous clothes hanging space for your use.
