Gerald's Place

21B Abercromby Pl., Edinburgh, Edinburgh, EH3 6QE, Scotland

Although he is not a native of the city, Gerald Della-Porta is one of those B&B owners to whom Edinburgh owes so much. Forget the clichés—you really are welcomed into his home and treated like a most honored guest. The rooms are furnished in classic style, with huge beds, fresh flowers, and original artwork (much of it for sale). A block beyond Queen Street, this lodging has a very central location. Breakfast around the big table is a communal affair, and the food is healthier than at most places.

PROS

  • the advice and thoughtfulness of the owner
  • spacious rooms

CONS

  • stairs are difficult to manage
  • an uphill walk to the city center
  • no credit cards
