Superking room in the heart of town

Apartment - Private room · Calton Hill, Edinburgh, EH1 3BJ, United Kingdom

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 :)

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.

  • Yishan was an awesome host! Great communicator, directions to her place from the airport were super clear, and she had great recommendations for where to go. Her place was perfectly situated in the heart of Edinburgh and was in a picturesque setting. She was a gracious and thoughtful host, even had extra toiletries if needed. I would absolutely stay with her again.

  • Very nice bedroom in a very central place ! The owner let us be very free in her flat. The breakfast is not prepared but you have corn flakes and bred in the kitchen. Thank you Lisa !

  • We had a wonderful time in this beautiful flat. Lisa could not have made us feel more welcome, and everything from the prime location to the convenience of a washing machine served to make it a great trip. Highly recommend.
