cozy room in the heart of Edniburgh

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

Double roomin 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 double bed (the other room also listed on Airbnb has a super king 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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was the perfect place for us to stay overnight in Edinburgh. The location, close to the station, suited our tight flying visit timescales! I can imagine that for a longer visit it would be equally well-placed as it's so central. The cost was very reasonable for the location but also the layout, decor and cleanliness of the whole flat, a pity we weren't staying longer!! Fantastic response and communication from Yishan meant we were completely prepared on arrival and knew exactly what to expect and how to get in. I would totally recommend to others.

  • Our experience here was wonderful. The house is adorable and comfortable. Lisa was not ever there so we did not get to know her and we shared two nights with another couple. That was a bit unnerving but she assured me that they were safe. They were polite people and everything worked out just fine.
    Very clean, my only complaint was water pressure and shower head. I love my showers and I never got a good one.
    The location was perfect!!

  • Lisa's apartment was 'exactly as it said on the tin' - clean, tidy, quiet (even though it was so central) and cozy. Excellent instructions, so al in all faultless.
    Thank you Lisa

  • Lisa's flat was perfect for our stay in Edinburgh. It was very centrally located, the bed was comfortable, and the room was clean. Lisa also left a variety of toiletries in the bathroom for guests to use, which was really sweet and convenient. My boyfriend and I only stayed with Lisa for one night and Lisa was very accommodating about us having a late check-in and a very early check-out. I would highly recommend this air bnb for anyone visiting Edinburgh!

  • Cozy and very clean room, although it was a really short trip I liked to stay in this place. The place is really central - 5m walking from city centre and main transport routes - and the neighborhood is really pleasant.

    Lisa was really cool as she was available on Saturday 9AM to give us the keys.

  • This room is just as advertised, and easy to find right in the heart of Edinburgh. Lisa is a gracious host and extremely easy going, she even let me use her hairdryer! I would recommend this room to anyone wanting a taste of the city, or as a warm and comfortable place to sleep while you are passing through.

  • Lisa was very friendly and helpful and accommodating with arriving and leaving times. She also gave us some good advice on what to do while we were in Edinburgh, as well as giving us our space. The neighborhood is in a great location! Loved the area we were in- close walk to both Old Town and New Town. The only thing that did not wow us was the slightly stale cigarette smell. But we opened our window and were fine. Other than that- our experience was incredible! Would totally stay with Lisa again.
