How to find us

Our Location

The B&B is convenient located quite near the city centre (10 minutes on the bus) as well as the Waverley Train Station and the Playhouse.
The Pollock Halls and the Commonwealth Swimming Pool are also located very near to the guest house, within 5 minutes walking distance.
Also near AmarAgua you will find an excellent bus service which after a short bus ride you will be in the centre of the Royal Mile and close to Edinburg Castle, Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament.

Being on the South side of the city, the access to The Royal Infirmary is only a short ride by bus or car.

Parking

Some Guest Houses and Hotels offer a private car park and they usually operate on “First Come, First Served” basis, as they may not have as many parking spaces as bedrooms.
AmarAgua does NOT have a CAR PARK, but we do have FREE on street parking, both in our street and the surrounding area so you will always find a parking space.
We would recommend that guests do not hire cars while visiting the city,as we have an excellent and economic public transport system.
