How to find us in Edinburgh's City Centre
Arriving by Car
Despite, our central location, we have access to parking nearby (90m) for guests at £10 per day. There is now a wide zone of restricted parking around Edinburgh, stretching well into the suburbs. Some other accommodation are still offering 'free on-street parking' - this no longer exists in Central Edinburgh other than in later in the evenings and at the weekend.
From the North (Stirling and Forth Road Bridge M90/M9/A90)
Take the A90 right into the city centre, then take Lothian Road (A702) for half a mile to Tollcross, at the very top of the hill take the right-hand fork into Leven Street, one block further turn right again into Gilmore Place at the King's Theatre, the Valentine City Centre Guesthouse is immediately on your left.
Arriving by Air
Detailed information on your transport options can be found on our Edinburgh Airport page, which explains your various taxi and bus options. Unless you are a fan of trams, the service is not a practical option as the stops do not connect well to local bus services to this area and the express bus is cheaper and just as quick!
Arriving by Rail or Coach
An onward taxi is approximately £7-£8, buses as shown on the map from St Andrews Square or Princes' Street are £1.80 per person - exact change or a debit card (Note that a day pass valid on all normal services is £4.50). The following Lothian Buses (NOT "First Buses" who run services with some matching numbers on routes into Edinburgh) services as shown on the map at the top of the page pass by seconds from us along Home Street (first stop after passing Tollcross clock in the middle of the junction at the top of Lothian Road) at the bus stop opposite the Cameo Cinema. 10,11,15,16. From the mound (half-way along Princes Street or at the top [West] of Market Street) you can also take the Lothian Buses 23 and 27. Note that the 10 and 27 continue into Gilmore Place and stop directly outside our door - both every 10 minutes at peak times. Buses to/from Tollcross (12 services!!) run every two or three minutes - even in the evening - The Valentine is the only Guest House in this area so close to all these services.
