This lovely room is located on a classic Georgian street and sits just in the shadow of Calton Hill (home of the famous Beltane Festival and a great place to view the Festival Fireworks from). You are just moments walking from all the attractions you could want to see and just outside the flat are a number of excellent cafes, pubs, restaurants and takeaways from all over the world!

The room we stayed in was nice and spacious and was really clean. It was very close to city centre and to Calton hill as well which is a really good spot for a mini hike if you like sunsets. The only downfall was having to share a bathroom with 6 other people which caused the bathroom to not be as clean. But apart from that, I enjoyed my stay.
The room at Hillside is exactly as Hany described. It's clean, comfortable, and two blocks away from Calton Hill. A great value!
Great location, very comfortable bed, kind of a terrible shower. This is more like a hotel than a home, which was fine since I was coming from the US and needed a quiet place to rest on my first day. I will say that the initial communications after booking were not very welcoming. I was trying to find out if I could check in early because my flight landed at 7:30 am, and Hany insisted that I call the housekeeper rather than answer my question by e-mail. Since I was coming from a different country, e-mail would have been much more convenient and didn't feel like an unreasonable assumption on my part that we would communicate that way.
Thank you Brendan. I hope you understand that there was another guest before you and you wanted to check in before the listed check in time which is very hard so simply I wanted you to call the housekeeper before the checking in time to see if she prepared the room or not (Because it is before the checking in time which I was trying to help you out as a favour and it is impossible for me to say if the room is ready or not until the housekeeper prepare it right?). I hope you understand that. Btw shower is fine but you need to start from low to high not high straight away
We loved the accommodations and was very easy to access. The location was great if you don't mind a bit of walking. It was perfect for my wife and I. I would stay again and highly recommend!
Well located & clean.Very helpful hosts...would definitely recommend.
We had a lovely stay at Meta's. It is a shared property with other guests, but the room was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed to enjoy our stay in Edinburgh. It is a bit of a walk from most of the main parts of town (about 15-20 minutes) but is in a nice residential area near some restaurants and with easy access to Calton Hill. The check in and out process was painless and we had a great time.
We had a lovely stay, the room was very clean and comfortable. The only this I would change is the directions that were emailed to me. They were completely incorrect. to get a key, and it is now a passcode,Luckily Suzie was able to help us. She was very helpful. I would recommend this accommodation to friends, and would defiantly stay there again.

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.
