Bright double bedroom in a modern development close to Haymarket Station and 15 minutes walk to Princes Street. There is private bathroom not ensuite. Free parking in front of the building. Close to different restaurants and coffee shops and supermarkets. The place is very central and within walking distance to all major tourist attractions in the city centre. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Not suitable for families. This is not a hotel so you need to confirm your arrival time on booking or 2 days before arrival. Unfortunately cooking is not allowed at my place. Please read full listing to avoid problems.

Reka was very accommodating - my plane was delayed and I got a little lost going to the house. Reka contacted me to make sure I was ok and help with getting into the apartment building. We didn’t get a chance to meet in person, but her place was clean and cozy. She also left us a…

Clean, friendly, welcoming and situated within easy distance of the centre. Keep in mind that there are 2 flights of stairs and no cooking allowed, so not for everyone, but was perfect for our needs.

Reka was a wonderful host with great knowledge of the area and the travel to navigate around Edinburgh. We were a little hesitant to stay at a shared place at first, but we had our own room & bathroom, and she was great to give us our privacy and space, along with being availab…

Reka was welcoming with an incredibly clean place. The location is great and very walkable with an abundance of cafes as well as bars just minutes away.

The host was too communicative... and by that I mean it was constant chatting back and forth before we even arrived with questions, and during our visit as well. The host has specific check in times and it was hard for us to meet those times so we ended up waiting for her for alm…

Response from Reka:
Denise, I was a very accomodating host despite your lack of communication and rudeness. I emailed you to check the time of your arrival when you booked but you didn't reply. I sent you a reminder closer to the date of your arrival and you said you can't give me an exact time and it may be late afternoon or evening. However I told you I will be at home at 6pm if that's was fine with you. On the day of your arrival you said you will be arriving at my place by 6 p.m. May I remind you, the check -in time is between 12 to 2 pm and if I was strict you wouldn't be able to check-in later at 6 p.m. But you arrived at 5.15 pm and email me if I could meet you earlier than I left the office immediately and told you I will try my best to be at home before 6 p.m. You decided after few minutes that you couldn't wait for me so you wanted to go for dinner. The flat is in the city centre you won't get free parking anywhere except off the street if you are lucky, so you need a parking permit if you want free parking. You were not happy that you couldn't leave you car at my place without the permit and go for a wander. I reached at my place at 5.45 so basically you waited for 30 minutes only. A day before your departure I asked you about the time you will be leaving the room, you told me you will leave at 11 am because you reached at 6pm and that you paid for 2 full nights. I don't understand that logic because you were meant to come late afternoon anyway and you stayed for the two nights you paid for. I told you the check-out time is 9 am but politely asked if you could leave by 10 a.m which is one hour later that the check out time. I need to get the room ready for my next guests. You started replying rudely to me. It seems very clear to me that you didn't read the details before booking with me . You were very upsetting but despite this I was very patient with you. I don't think you understand how Airbnb works and should stay in hotels if you are uncertain about your plans as they have a 24 hour reception where you can go at anytime you wish and if you want to stay longer than the check out time they will happily let you do it at an extra fee.
