Good choice!
Lovely host who made my stay comfortable! Hotel was clean and well kept. A short walk to the city center. I’d stay here again! A good choice for the price and location!

Top notch
Amazing room for the price, very comfy, extremely friendly and helpful hosts. A little far to walk to the city centre, but has a direct bus stop right opposite

Very welcoming owner, highly recommend
The owner of the hotel was extremely welcoming and looked after us for the entire duration of the stay. He was also very helpful and gave us lots of advice about getting around Edinburgh. The hotel is situated a 12-minute bus ride from the city centre, in a very safe quiet area of town. The room was warm and clean and the beds were very comfortable.

stayed for a week at Capital House with my college age son while he was looking for a long term rental to attend the University. the Location was perfect for walking to campus. The room was spacious and comfortable with the European charm of large windows and ornamental plaster mouldings. Ali, the owner, was super helpful with recommendations, both he and his wife were so friendly it was like staying with family. My family will definitely stay here again when we visit our son at school.
