Great B&B near Royal Observatory
The Guest house is a 10min walk from the Royal Observatory and a 20min walk from old town. Ideally located for a business meeting at the Observatory. The Highfield has only a few rooms (5, I believe) and the owners are very welcoming and friendly. The rooms are not very large but very clean, comfortable and extremely well maintained. It is not a place where you want to work for hours but if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in your room, it is a great place to stay. If needed, I am sure you can use the breakfast room to work or read. The breakfast is cooked to order, very tasty and served starting at 8am. I keep on the top of my list for places to stay in Edinburgh.

Super guest house on the south side of Edinburgh
Fabulous guest house within easy walking distance of the City Centre. Well connected to bus routes too, and close to most of the Fringe venues. Maggie and Kate were great hosts, with Maggie in particular giving loads of advice on travel and dining options. The single room is a little on the small side but comfortable, bright and clean. I hadn't realised the bathroom was not ensuite but it is very close to the bedroom and not a major inconvenience. Breakfast was amazing!
