      Staff were friendly and location

      Pillows were very hard, alarm went off at 8 o clock in the morning waking everyone up and no explanation as to why, parking was extremely unorganised had to wait a half hour before I could get my car out and I was late because of this.

    • Group of friends

      The staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was also excellent, near to the central bus station and easy to walk to the town area. Good value for money.

      The heating in the room was not warm enough, and it got rather cold at night.

      Great staff, inexpensive especially for the convenient location

      was rather outdated and not terribly comfortable. But, for the price and location, that was fine by us!

    • Couple

      The room was lovely and clean, great decor and the guesthouse was in a very convenient location

      It was very noisy late at night, would get woken up by drunk people shouting, so if you're a light sleeper it might be worth taking ear plugs or something.

      The location was excellent, staff friendly and very clean rooms

      Cold shower water early on a morning.......before 7am

      Acomodations were good and big. Breakfast very good, with a lot of options Quartos espaçosos e café da manhã muito bom.

      The staff was cold and didn't offer us much help. Internet doesn't work. Hot water, at night, only worked after we had asked. Absolutely not indicate. Atendimento extremamente frio, quando precisamos de ajuda negaram. Fomos tomar banho de noite e a água estava fria, foi preciso reclamar e só assim ligaram o aquecimento. Internet, mesmo aquela na área comum, de acesso quase impossível. Quarto familiar no terceiro andar, ruim para o transporte da bagagem. A sensação geral foi insatisfatória.

      Excelent location, just next to the bus (and luas) station. 24H reception. Comfortable bed and decent breakfast.

      Small bathroom. No elevator (not a problem if you're traveling light or are in good shape!). The window didn't close well, so there's some "extra" noise coming from outside (again, not a problem if you're quite tired or have heavy sleep!)

      We liked the location but the hotel staff that greeted us was not very hospitable, he kept urging us to leave town, telling us about crime, problems with parking, etc. He did everything to make us feel unwelcome. He wouldn't even change paper euros for coins. We were led to believe parking was available bit it wasn't and the guy who

      The guy who works there during regular hours.

      Room 14 was very cold, toilet seat broken and did not flush properly

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      easy to reach from central bus station, clean room, helpful staff, with better isolated windows against noise from the street it would be perfect

      we missed a facilty für making tea and coffe as it is usually to find in other guesthouses

      I picked the Achor guesthouse largely on the strength of its price and good feedback, and it turned out to be a very good decision. The guesthouse is very well located, close to town but not too close to be noisy at night, and its rooms are very good value, being comfortable and well-heated (I visited in December, when it was damn cold outside!). I heartily recommend the Anchor and would happily stay here again.

      The shower could have used a bit of bleach but to be fair, it was no worse than my own at home! The owners/staff were very friendly - the only slight weirdness was their insistence on guests having to ring the doorbell every time you want to nip in. I felt as though I was constantly disturbing them, but I guess they're used to it and certainly never seemed annoyed!

    • Group of friends

      We stayed in a very nice, large and spacious family room. Breakfast was very good and varied. Old Town with the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle was a 15 minute walk or can be easily reached by bus (a 5 minute ride to get to the bridge that separates New Town - where the guesthouse is - from Old Town). Leith is also very well connected by bus (a 15 minute ride). Highly recommended.

      The bathroom is quite small for a family room, but was clean and good anyway.

      Very nice service. Rooms were clean. Good located quite close to o connell but still quite at night.
