Edinburgh Castle

Guests from all over the world have happy memories of staying in the heart of Edinburgh at the fin-de-siecle ground floor apartment of 2 Cambridge Street (a.k.a. The Dynamite Club). Hélène (teacher) and Erlend (journalist) have created two very atmospheric guest suites; breakfasts are inimitable and delicious.

The Usher Concert Hall, Royal Lyceum Theatre and Traverse Theatre are within 50 paces, Princes Street is a couple of hundred yards away and Edinburgh Castle looms above the end of the street - surely this is one of the most central and convenient bed and breakfasts you can find in Edinburgh.
