Nuestra experiencia en casa de Eric fue estupenda. La casa es sensacional, limpieza, cuidado de los detalles....todo estupendo. Por poner un pero pasé un poquito de frío en algún momento de ducha, o de estar charlando en la habitación.
El desayuno inmejorable.
Absolutamente recomendable. Seguro que no te arrepientes si decides estar unos días en esta casa.

If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to book here, do it! It's just a special place. The bed was great which is something I really appreciate. The hope is marvelously decorated and the cleanliness is impeccable. Location is just a short walk to Lieth, which we loved.

Nuestra estancia en Edimburgo ha sido genial. El lugar era muy accesible al centro histórico con una parada de bus en la misma puerta que llega cada muy poco tiempo. Eric es una persona muy amable y discreta que cuida todos los detalles de tu estancia. El desayuno increíble!!!!

Gracias por todo Eric!

Volveremos seguro.

We stayed 4 nights at this B&B. There are 2 separate rooms and one bathroom we shared together. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the bathroon modern. The breakfast Eric prepared fresh every morning was really excellent, a real Scottish breakfast, and for me I enjoyed the haggis! Eric and Alessandro are very friendly and helpful. They gave us a lot of support.
The City of Edinburgh is easy to reach by bus route 25. In the night the 25N doesn't run there so it might be the best to choose bus 22N.
So we three enjoyed the stay at Rainbow B&B very much, it is really an excellent accomodation with very friendly hosts and again an excellent breakfast." Bravo Zulu" as in the navy is said. We are absolute sure to book the same accomodation again during our next Edinburgh trip.
