Room was confortable with two big beds for our family. Instructions were good, we came by foot from Waverly. Locker is wery near the wall so ne carefull for your fingers. Only one toillets for many guests so plan ahead, specially in morning. We use Kitchener and have breakfast in dining room. Hany, recommend to check chairs as they need to be sealed on legs as two are getting apart. For our needs for short stay good choice. Were in center in 10 minutes.
The place was Nice, well euquipped and well located, and the price was affordable. But nobody welcome us and lacked a towel and toilet paper. However it's enought if you stay few nights in Edinburgh.
Thank you. All towels and toilet papers are in cupboard and I told the housekeepers to make sure that loads are outside always just in case some guests get embarrassed to ask. I pass one or two times a day to the apartment as well but sometimes guests are away exploring the city :) Thanks
It was a great experience. Very beautiful apartment. My room was extremely clean and the view from my room was amazing.
There was a living room with sofas and TV where you could watch movies from the collection.
Great experience overall.
Das Zimmer war sehr gut, aber nur ein Bad für mehrere Zimmer, da schafft man es eher nicht um 10 fertig zu sein.
Good location, big room and good beds. Good prise. Staðsetningin er góð og herbergið er rumgott. Það þarf að deila baðherberginu með öðrum gestum og ekkert handklæði er á baðinu en þú færð handklæði inn á herbergið þitt. Í herberginu er enginn vaskur en afar lítið eldhús er í íbuðinni sem hægt er að geyma matvæli í isskáp og jafnvel elda eitthvað. En það er ekki langt að labba á veitingastaði í hverfinu. Ég mæli með þessari gistingu ef þú erf ekki leita að lúxus gistingu þetta er gott verð, einfalt og snyrtilegt herbergi þó það sé í gamalli ibúð.
The apartment was good, we didn't know Meta, it would be important to had someone there for obtaining more information. (For example how the washing machine works). The location was quite nice. We enjoyed it
Apartment was clean and the beds were comfortable, just as pictured. Took a few tries to figure out the shower, but it worked fine. Lots of traffic on the washer and dryer, so don't expect to have it available. Otherwise a great stay at a central spot in Edinburgh.

About the Host, Meta
I have been hosting since 2012 and have found it to be an absolutely delightful experience. I'm only sorry I didn't do this sooner!
I've really enjoyed hosting and chatting with all the lovely airbnb guests who have come to stay and I'm looking forward to being a guest myself sometime soon.
I try to create a calm relaxing feel with all the facilities you may need and a lot of warmth. Wether you plan to spend time for business, pleasure or studies..I am very much looking forward to meeting you and making your stay as comfortable as possible.
I will be more than happy to give you advice on getting around the city and finding the most wonderful things to see, do and eat.
