Sonas Guesthouse is ideally situated on the South side of the city being located on a quiet side street. Close to Arthur's Seat (Edinburgh's extinct volcano), The Royal Commonwealth Pool, University of Edinburgh,Royal College of Surgeons, The Festival Theatre and The Queen's Hall. Just a two minute walk takes you to the bus stop on the main road, where a cheap, excellent bus service will speed you to your selected destination in and around the city centre. Perhaps Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace or the historic Royal Mile is of interest to you. Maybe the Royal Yacht Britannia, Edinburgh Zoo or the Royal Botanic Gardens are more to your taste. If you are a fan of the Da Vinci Code then Rosslyn Chapel is only a short ride away. If retail therapy is your desire then Edinburgh has its very own exclusive department store, Jenners, on Princes Street, now competing with the new kid on the block, Harvey Nichols, at St Andrew's Square. For visitors to the Royal Infirmary we are a five to ten minute drive.
