"Lovely room. Shame no breakfast but great for price."
Just a one night stay on business. Looking for somewhere close to city center for a low rate but of a decent quality. There were several hotels listed at a similar low rate but this one looked by far the nicest. It was a toss up between a nice room or getting a place that did breakfast, but from previous experience a hotel for that price won't generally do an amazing breakfast anyway. Read less
Likes:
I was more than satisfied with the quality of the rooms. Clean, quiet and well presented. Nice ensuite bathroom but lacking a powerful shower.
Dislikes:
I wouldn't say you'll be blown away by the facilities on offer if that's what you're looking. There's no minibar, trouser press and that kind of thing. The room mixup when arriving at 1am was a shame.
Response from Lantern Guest House:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to position our Guest House as a step up from a hostel. We deliberately keep our facilities simple to keep the costs low. The same goes for breakfast, within 50 meters there are many breakfast options form Gregg's to Valvona & Crolla. Please accept our appologies for the door code mix up.

Response from Lantern Guest House:
Our showers are electric showers, which tend to be problematic for people who are not used to an electric shower. We have typed up instructions on how to use the shower to ensure optimal performance - the instructions are included in the black book of useful information which we provide in every room. We shall now ensure we include an instruction sign in the bathroom itself to ensure it's prominently visible - thanks for the feedback.

Response from Lantern Guest House:
Guests arrived before check-in time, we allowed them into their room to drop off luggage, the guests stayed in the room for some time, before our cleaner asked if they could vacate the room to allow it to be cleaned. The room was cleaned & the beds made with fresh linen - perhaps the comments are in relation to the appearance of the beds when initially allowed into the room to drop off their luggage. If there were soap stains on the bedding we'd hope a guest would bring it to our attention.

"very clean and not too far from the center"
the room is very clean and the place is not too far from the center, 10min walking. And it is a warm room.

The staff was very friendly, but the first night we did not have towels and showering is very stressfull. The shower has not pressure and it was impossible to remove the shampoo and soap. But except this detail, the room was excellent! Read less

Likes:
THe service and the location. The number locks and heavy doors gives you a real safe and secure feeling ( can't loose the key)
Dislikes:
The bed was very hard and the pillows were non supportive. And unfortunatly I'm allergic to the drapes. The shower was also very low pressurised (since we're from holland we're used to proper showers)

"Excellent value, clean and comfortable accommodation in a great location"
My boyfriend and I visited Edinburgh for Hogmanay. Found the Lantern Guesthouse and was so pleased I had as it saved us a fortune. We stayed for 4 nights and although you don't get a daily clean, you can opt to pay extra for this. To be honest, you don't need this if only staying for a few nights. Read less

The room was lovely - clean and tastefully furnished with a great shower! Only a 5-10min walk from centre of town but still quiet at night.

Overall rating: 4.3 out of 5
 Arrived to meet Richard, very welcoming and told us anything needed just to ask. Gave us tips on where to go and places to visit. Tea and coffee facilities were great. Great nights sleep and a very quiet area. Location was suited only 10 minute walk from train station in new town. Had everything around you that is needed. A pleasant walk into new or old town where you find a more lively place. Would recommend and would definetly stay again.
