Bright and comfortable studio flat in the middle of the festival city Edinburgh! Double sized bunk beds mean you can actually sleep two couples, or a family of four, provided you don't mind getting a little cosy.

The Space

The space catches the morning sun making it the perfect place to start that long day of site seeing. The cosy built-in settee and bright window seating areas are perfect for flaking out after that long day traipsing about Edinburgh's many sites. The double wooden bunk beds are of solid construction and offer firm mattresses, perfect for recuperating so you can do it all again the next day ... ;)

Guest Access

Full access to the entire flat with the exception of one cupboard and the postbox.

Interaction with Guests

Unfortunately I won't be able to meet you and show you around. :(

The Neighborhood

The flat is right in the centre of the Edinburgh - a stones throw from everything this 'world heritage site' city and festival mecca has to offer.

Getting around

The main train station of Edinburgh and the bus from/to the airport are a few minutes walk from the flat.

Other Things to Note

Unfortunately as I'm not about I won't be able to provide much for breakfast but the City Cafe across the road opens early and Nero around the corner has great fresh croissants. Also a few guests have commented on the noise from the busy street below - sealing the catches and closing the vents on the double glazed windows helps a lot and I've noticed guests rarely do this ...

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Great place in a very central location! Beds super comfortable and also bigger than I expected from the photo. Didn't use kitchen but seems good. Washing machine was great for getting some clothes cleaned easily.

  • My boyfriends and I stayed here May bank holiday weekend. The apartment location was great, just off the Royal Mile and the apartment itself had everything we needed. Communication was very good and AJ accommodated our late check out. My only comment is that the street was quite noisy but this may have been because it was bank holiday weekend. Overall we had a great stay

  • Our stay was amazing. Not only this flat is located in the centre of Old Town, it is also on top of the famous Blair Street's Vaults. Even though we didn't meet AJ in person he was very helpful and flexible to give us the best time possible.

    The house is very comfortable with all the amenities you would expect from a modern flat. Very clean, complete kitchen, nice bathroom, comfy bed. The street is a bit busy at night (Fridays and Saturdays I would expect) and for some light sleepers might be a problem. I wouldn't however miss this opportunity because of that.

    Would definitely stay again at the same place :)

  • Um estúdio muito simpático e muito bem localizado. A única ressalva foi a falta de internet durante nossa estada.

  • Outstanding location and value in the heart of Edinburgh. The apartment is steps away from High Street and right in the midst of nightlife. AJ accommodated our early check-in and had the apartment sufficiently prepped and ready to go. Thank you!

  • Lovely flat, in a perfect location right in the heart of Edinburgh. Collecting the keys was convenient and easy and the place was clean, tidy and equipped with everything you need. If you're looking for a quiet getaway then this is probably a little too close to the action for you, but I was pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was inside the flat on a Saturday night. Host was great, sending very clear information and helpfully offering fliexible check out time.

    Highly recommended

  • AJ's place was great and just as advertised. Blair made check-in and check-out very easy. The place was spotlessly clean and plenty big enough, since I was by myself. The full sized bunk beds would make it great for even a family of 4 if you don't mind getting cozy. The location really could not be beat. One of the best in Edinburgh, I would say. About a 30 second walk to the Royal Mile. Plenty of great pubs,restaurants,and stores in short walking distance,yet the block has a kind of cozy feel to it. I had a car since I needed to commute to the suburbs for work, and I had no problem parking right on the street each evening after 6;30pm. I liked walking up and down the stairs to get a work-out, but also having the option of the lift when I had my luggage. I will be needing a place again in a couple of months and AJ's place is definitely on my list, if it's available then.

  • Great apartment, great location, good communication, no problems. Recommended.

  • What a perfect apartment for two nights in Edinburgh! The location was absolutely outstanding, a 1/2 block to the Royal Mile and 2 blocks to the airport shuttle pick up/drop off. The local pubs and restaurants are outstanding and you are also very close to the main museum and Edinburgh Castle.

    Our interactions were AJ were great. We got a flat tire upon arriving in Edinburgh and were a bit late to our arrival time, but AJ was flexible and made things very easy.

    The apartment itself was great for two friends traveling together. The bunk beds were very comfortable and the washer/dryer came in handle. Apartment was clean and welcoming-- I would definitely stay here again!

  • We found communication with both AJ and Blair from the booking to arrival excellent. The flat was spotless clean, centrally located and had everything to make it a home from home. Would recommend as a great place to stay for a trip to Edinburgh.
