About this listing
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.

This was our favourite Airbnb experience! The bedroom was lovely, the place was perfectly situated and we really really enjoyed our company. Susan was fantastic.
Incredible location in the heart of Edinburgh. Very comfortable bed and they even supplied plasters for my blisters!!
Fantastic location. It is more than ideal. Few minutes from train station. The room is similar like the picture. Lisa was a great host and her friend Susan was very friendly too. I left my luggage in the flat and drop the keys off later ... Super!!
Lisa was very communicative through text and didn't have a problem with us arriving late (around 10pm). Because she was out of town, her roommate settled us in and gave us the brief house tour. Flat location is excellent but I would have preferred a tidier room and shower--a bit dusty and unkempt for the price. Also, heartier breakfast items would have been nice. Nice extra, you'll find loads of pamphlets and info for touring the city. Was okay for our 1 night crash pad. Very close to Waverly Station, main sites and the pick up stand for numerous tour bus companies.
What a great place to stay. 5 min walk to all the City Center attractions. We almost missed visiting Calton Hill which has some of the best views of Edinburgh and is literally right outside the flat.
Lisa was great, kept in touch with us via text before and during our trip. We mostly dealt with the caretaker, Susan, who was wonderful. Really warm and friendly, Susan was the perfect host, super attentive and gave us our space.
If you're looking for a good coffee shop/sandwiches etc, Pep & Fodder (2min walk) was a favorite.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Thanks Lisa and Susan!
