The Space

Please note that the two listings under my name are in the same apartment. Due to unknown technical problem of airbnb I can't show them at the same address...

This beautiful and airy apartment is suited in the heart of Edinburgh on 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. There are probably 20 buses within 1 mins' walking distance, and Edinburgh Waverley station is within 300 meters. 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 (the other room also listed on Airbnb has a double bed) and a wardrobe for you to use.

Guest Access

There are one bathroom with WC and another separate WC 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 and hair-dryer are all provided. If you need things such as shower gel, shampoo, umbrella etc just ask :) 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

And a bit about myself: I am a freelance artist and always flexible about time. Not the kind that get annoyed when my guests come home late-- I don't need to wake up for work in the morning :D So feel free to explore Edinburgh and I am always here to help.
I am generally in my own room and you probably even notice i am here :) And if you are a single traveller and would like some company I might do that too! Always good to make some new friends ;)

The Neighborhood

Very central but pretty quiet. Even a lot of locals don't know about my street because it's pretty much hidden away from the main roads. Very safe so don't worry if you go out in the nights.

Getting around

Train station is very close and buses are plenty. Airport bus final stop is also just 5 mins walk away outside the train station.

  • Lisa was really accommodating and generously put up with my early arrival and late departure. Really comfortable bed and I slept very well indeed. There was a nice mix of people staying in the other rooms also listed on airbnb. Thanks!

  • Lisa and Patrick were extremely friendly people and made our stay as enjoyable as they possibly could. It was really nice to get to know them, to chat about football, and to get their advice about Edinburgh. I would highly recommend!

  • Very good location, spacious room, good amenities, very helpful host.

  • We stayed for one night at Lisa's flat as we were passing through Edinburgh on our way to a wedding. The flat is really nice with a spacious lounge and a nice big bed.

    Lisa couldn't meet us but gave easy to follow instructions so getting into the flat was a breeze.

    We slept well and the flat was quiet especially considering it is in a very central location. We didn't really hear any noise from outside.

    Lisa provides everything you need for a pleasant stay including breakfast items so we'd definitely recommend. Great value!

  • Lisa's flat and her hospitality were tops in our first experiences with Airbnb--immaculately clean room and both kitchen and living room were made available to us. A shared bath with another guest was no problem and with our room window opening to a walled courtyard, we had only the birds to make noise, but even the street was quiet in spite of it's proximity to Calton Hill and Waterloo. And great shops, pubs and restaurants are merely short walks away.

  • Excellent experiene.

    June 2014
  • Lisa's apartment was wonderful. The location was central and the room was big and comfy and complete with towels and a guidebook. She also allowed us to use her kitchen, which was well stocked and thus made it easy for us to make our own breakfast and dinner.

    We really enjoyed our stay with Lisa and would highly recommend it!
