It was a very clean apartment, easy to find and access to main transport links was good. The emails sent were concise and had details needed. I never met my host and collected keys at property.
It was a different experience to other AirBNB properties i have rented or stayed at with friends.
The location is great with street side parking. It's easy to get around to the attractions with a tour bus stop within walking distance.
The location was perfect! It was my second time in Edinburgh and I wanted to stay close to Authur's seat. It was so easy to walk to everything and there were a lot of amazing pubs nearby. The flat was comfortable and as stated in other reviews, the shower was a little hard to use but once I figured it out it was so easy.
We had one night stay at Meta place. The apt is nice, clean and well equipped. The instruction to the house is easy to follow. Location is good to commute to tourist attractions.
The flat was easily assessable, we arrived mid afternoon and had no trouble getting in. There were issues with the hot water, heating and a leaking toilet on the first night. Hany was very helpful and made sure problems were solved the next day. A great location, the Holyrood park so close and amazing as was Royal Mile. The flat was warm and cosy next evening and a great place to come home to in the evening. Many thanks Kim
The host was very accommodating, and was willing to send us more information on request when we needed it. When we arrived at the flat there was already towels on the bed for us and packets of shower gel and shampoo.
The flat was in a very good location near the royal mile (5 minutes walk) with easy access to busses around Edinburgh and a good view of Holyrood Park.

I try to create a calm relaxing feel with all the facilities you may need and a lot of warmth. Wether you plan to spend time for business, pleasure or studies..I am very much looking forward to meeting you and making your stay as comfortable as possible.
