As usual the room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. The host sare extremely helpful and got me around on the bus system. The only thing that was lacking were short breads. I remember short breads on previous visits so was looking forward to them. I guess I just had a little bad luck. :-)

53 Fredrick Street was fab. Located right in the heart of the city, easy to find and get to. Katy and David were fab hosts greeting us on arrival and always a phone call away if we needed anything. Definitely one of the best places I've stayed in the city, we will definitely return.

Five friends shared two triple rooms ( both of which were en suite) and we had a great time. Clean, friendly and quiet this is a great find. The only drawback is the stairs which are steep and several long flights up, so if you are fit ( like we were,) this is not a problem at all, but unsuitable...

Thank you for your recent stay with us and for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate all feedback from guests.

If you don't want to stay in a clone hotel but want somewhere both very friendly and characterful then try this place. As other reviews have noted, there are a lot of steps involved, so save some energy from your day out in the city for the final climb to your room. The rooms we had were spacious and comfortable...

This is a lovely B&B owned by a young couple who have taken great pains to modernize this lovely flat and provide comfortable spacious rooms. Be forewarned though that if you cannot handle stairs, this might not be the place for you, since it is a bit of a walk up. That said it is well worth climbing the steps...

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.
