About this listing

Super King sized comfy bed private room in a 3-bedroom quiet apartment right in the city centre. Within 5 minutes walk to Waverley Station and close to all the attractions! Full access to the kitchen! Wifi is of course included :)

The space

We have two guest rooms sharing the bathroom with a toilet and a separate toilet, a fully-equipped kitchen and a spacious living room. My helper Sofia lives in and take care of the guests.

This beautiful and airy apartment is suited in the heart of Edinburgh at Calton Hill where the famous observatory is. Princes street, North Bridge and Calton hill are all within 1 min's walk and Royal Mile is about 2. Castle, Holyrood palace, Arthur Seat, National museum are all within 20 minutes walk. There are probably 20 buses within 1 mins' walking distance, and Edinburgh Waverley station is 5 minutes away on foot. Super close to all the famous landmarks and this is the perfect location for your visit to this magnificent city.

Driving in Edinburgh is not recommended as there is no free street parking in the city centre. And if you do drive here, there is a NCP parking 100 meters away or you can use the paid street parking on Regent Road.

There are two rooms available in this 3 bed flat. The one advertised here has a super king comfy bed and a wardrobe for you to use. (The other room also listed on Airbnb has a double bed and a small walk-in closet.)

Guest access

There are a shared bathroom with toilet and another shared toilet room, so no queuing up for toilet in the morning :)

Feel free to use the living room and kitchen (as long as you clean your dishes). I have everything you would expect in a kitchen. Tea/coffee/bread/cereal/milk etc are all there for you to have too.

WIFI covers the whole flat.

Fresh towels, hair-dryer, basic medicine, all the personal cleaning products, umbrellas, iron and ironing board are all provided. Oh and i have a printer, you can print your boarding passes ;)

And if you are travelling from outside the UK and would like a SIM card ready for you to use, give me a shout in advance I will get one for you so you don't have to pay the expensive roaming charge.

Interaction with guests

My helper Sofia will be arranging your arrival and take care of you during your stay. She's a PhD student at Edinburgh Uni. She's very warm and helpful person, so feel free to ask her for anything-- from recommendations to extra towels.
She's generally in her own room and you probably won't even notice she's there :) And if you are a single traveler and would like some company she is always happy to have a chat!

Other things to note

Flat is on the upper floor (1st floor) without a lift. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Lisa's flat is perfectly situated...very close to all the interesting sights, yet tucked away on a small, quiet street. The flat itself is comfortable and clean & Lisa's helper, Sofia was nice & helpful. A good place to lay your head for your time in Edinburgh.

Great location at the base of Calton Hill. Walking distance to Old and New Town with lots to see and do. Great value and friendly hosts. Easy check in and communication was good. Lots of information and tourist pamphlets available in the living room. Shared bathroom wasn't an issue for us during our stay - everyone was very considerate. Nice to have access to the kitchen although we did not require it during our stay.

This place has a great location and the bed is very comfy. Plan on finding parking accommodations though when you get here.

Awesome place! Very near the station. Also near great restaurants. Walkable to the top of calton hill, which provides scenic views, in just a few mins. The bedroom we stayed in had enough space to lay our bags, a window with a view, clothes hanging teck, etc. There is 1 bathroom with attached toilet, as well as a separate toilet, all shared amongst the guests. Sofie, who is the caretaker of the place, was of great help. The moment we stepped, she orientated us around not only the house, but also the area. Restaurants, sight seeing, etc. Definitely the top choice for convenience.
