We didn't realize during booked, but the walk to the Royal Mile takes 45 minutes, which is further than we thought. This is no fault of The International Guesthouse as they tell you where they're located, but it's something to keep in mind. Breakfast was very tasty, but don't plan to check email as the wifi is blocked in the dining room during those hours. Overall our stay was very pleasant, and the owners were kind & cordial. It's worth the money if you're willing to make the walk or hop a bus.

The single room is cheap. Very good breakfast. However, reception isn’t available all day, they didn’t receive credit card when I was there, both alarm clocks didn’t work, there was no soap in the shower, and wi-fi is available only downstairs (but it is mentioned in the website).
