Fabulous B&B. Great place, well situated within easy walking distance to the Royal mile etc. Very friendly staff, very clean comfortable room and great breakfast! We will not stay anywhere else when we return to Edinburgh.

Great B&B. Everything you'd expect. Clean and tidy and central. Lovely cooked breakfast. Couldn't have asked for more. Only stayed for one night. Busninto town and a taxi home at night which was cheap. Great location and parking too. Would definitely go back.

We've stayed a couple of days in Edinburgh and this is the best place to be. Near of the center of the city (25 minutes in foot), this place is quiet, comfortable and the owner is so kind and attentive. 100% recommended.

My Wife and I had a lovely stay at this Guest House, our room number 2,was spacious, and was also light and airy and overlooked the private car park. If I had to suggest any changes it would be that the bath sheets were a bit small, I found it difficult to dry myself with a " postage stamp "....

I stayed for three days at this conveniently located guest house. I was warmly welcomed and well looked after throughout my stay here. The room was well equipped, clean and comfortable and the choice and quality of the breakfast superb. All in all Sonas Guest House provided very good value for money, first rate service and a most enjoyable stay....

Great location. Lovely helpful staff. Great breakfast. Useful local information. Easy and cheap bus to city centre. I hate being told how long my review has to be! Stop controlling my freedom to think for myself.

We were made to feel very welcome and offered advice on where to go and buses to catch. The gesthouse is close enough to town but feels quiet location.The atmosphere at breakfast was friendly and we enjoyed talking to other guests.

The rooms were not too big, but neat, tidy and comfortable, everything was very clean, the breakfast was delicious and our host very friendly and helpful. Not really close to city centre, but fast and easy to reach by bus. Had a great stay, can fully recommend it!
