    The rooms were decorated very tastefully and modern.

    We were given 2 single beds put together but booked a room with a 'king double'. We were given the ground floor room that was situated inbetween the kitchen and the dining room and opposite the front door to the building which was disappointing as it was quite noisy and didnt feel very private.

    We had a lovely stay at the Capital Residence. It has been newly renovated, and everything is new, clean, and tasteful. We booked the family room, which has two bedrooms and a full bath. The room was at the top, back of the house, and so quiet it was like being in the countryside, the beds were new and very comfortable. The Mum and son who own/run the house are very genuine, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was enormous, a great variety, and they provided gluten free bread, muffins and sausages for me. The house is located about 15 or 20 minutes walk from the city and from the coast, very convenient. It was extremely good value for money. I would very happily stay there again, and will recommend it to friends and family.

    Very friendly manager also his mother was lovely cooker for the breakfirst.Very new B&B but nice classic building. Takes about 30min. to walk to town center of Edinburgh but it is also nice to see the people and town scape.Very international area, Chinese, Indian,Polish, Turkish Thai and Scotish so many restaurant to eat in and out. There was slightly funny functions in the house but it was also enjoyable to manage. The best was their breakfirst.

    It is ideally situated between the shopping in Edinburgh and some great restaurants in Leith, and the ability to park right outside the front door.
