Superking sized comfy bed in a 3 bed quiet apartment right in the city centre. Very easy to walk to from train station and close to all the attractions! Full access to kitchen! Wifi is of course included :)
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.
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 ;)
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.
Train station is very close and buses are plenty. Airport bus final stop is also just 5 mins walk away outside the train station.
Other Things to Note
Flat is upper floor
follow the same rules as if you were sharing a flat with housemates
We stayed at Lisa's place for two night's at the end of April whilst visiting Edinburgh for a gig. The first thing to note is the excellent location of the listing - a five minute walk from Edinburgh Waverly train station, and right next to Prince's Street, the main thoroughfare in central Edinburgh. This means you're little more than a 20 minute walk from attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, and the National Museum of Scotland; and 10 minutes from the National Gallery, and Scott monument.
The house itself was easy to find, and there you'll be sharing the space with other Air BnB'ers who may be staying in the other room in the house, and also with Lisa's friend Bede who resides in the house. Bede was welcoming, friendly, and only too happy to help. The house is kept really well, and you will have access to a shared bathroom (withtoilet), a separate toilet, living space, and a kitchen with everything you would expect. Guest 's are welcome to tea, coffee, milk, and we even were offered a range of biscuits. All in all you are made to feel very welcome, which we really apple coated.
The room itself was clean, cosy, and nicely decorated. The bed is super comfy! We found the room a tiny bit chilly (though that's likely more down to Edinburgh - wrap up if you're visiting!), but there is an electric heater provided that proved more than sufficient to heat us up quickly. The bathroom was also clean, the shower warm (warm rather than hot I would say), and towels and toiletries were provided - a nice touch.
On our check-out day, we were catching a train at 6pm. Were able to leave our luggage at Lisa's place, and return the key to Bede when we were ready to catch our train. This was really helpful as it allowed us to enjoy our last day in the city without hauling around bags.
The measure of any place on Air BnB is "would I stay there again?" and with Lisa's place it is an unreserved "yes". Taking price, location, and our experience into consideration then everything was positive. Thanks Lisa and Bede!
Our stay at Lisa's was fantastic!! We didn't meet Lisa but were greeted by her friend Bede. Everything essential was provided for us and the bed was so comfortable!! The location was perfect - right in the centre of town. Everything was in walking distance. The shower didn't have the greatest pressure but otherwise everything was perfect. Would definitely recommend Lisa's place.
Wir (eine Freundin und ich) haben drei Nächte in Lisas Wohnung verbracht. Die Abwicklung lief sehr unkompliziert und am Tag unserer Anreise hat alles, wie ausgemacht gepasst. Lisa selbst wohnt derzeit nicht mehr in der Wohnung, sodass wir alles mit ihrem Freund "Bede" abgeklärt haben. Er ist ein sehr netter und super umgänglicher Kerl.
Ganz großer Pluspunkt ist auf jeden Fall die Lage! Man ist innerhalb zwei/drei Min. Fußweg in der Innenstadt, am Bahnhof und an der Touristeninformation.
Rundum war alles super :-)
Absolut traumhaftes Zimmer/Appartement. Grandiose Matratze, ich habe schon lange nicht mehr so gut geschlafen :-). Die Lage des Appartements ist genial, so nahe im Zentrum, und doch so ruhig. Lisa haben wir während unseres Aufenthaltes leider nicht gesehen, doch es war alles da, was nötig war, um unseren Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Perfekt.
The house is very beautiful and clean. It's a good place which is near by train station. It is absolutely a perfect choice for living in Lisa's house.
