21b Abercromby Place

A cosy and quiet bed and breakfast in Georgian central Edinburgh.

Abercromby Place, a dignified Georgian terrace dating from the early 1800's, is one of the most central residential streets in Edinburgh, a leisurely nine minutes' stroll from Princes Street.

Number 21b, the home of Gerald Della-Porta, is known as Gerald's Place amongst friends. It is reached through a wrought iron gate, down traditional stone steps to a small courtyard filled with shrubs and flowering plants in pots.

This is a charming and informal place with lots of pictures, colour and objects, a cosy atmosphere, and a host who takes great pleasure in welcoming guests and helping to ensure they have a happy stay in Edinburgh.
