Unique stay

  • 4 of 5

This was a great stay! Natalie was helpful and accommodated our early arrival. She is young and can give you great recommendations to eat and drink. The hot water can be tricky and doesn't last very long, if this is a huge problem to you don't stay. But if you're like us, we didn't let it bother us. I was traveling with my mom and brother and there was plenty of room for us. The canal can get a little loud with party people but only noticed this on the weekends. I would stay here again and recommend it for a once in a lifetime vacation stay!

Family of 5

  • 5 of 5

The floating Boatel was delightful! We were a family of 1 adult couple, 1 senior couple and on six year old. The bunk beds are great for kids. The Boatel is equipped with everything you need. Excellent location for exploring Edinburgh. Located within a block of multiple restaurants and grocery store. Natalie was amazing and available to answer all your needs.
