Central, conveniently located, bright and airy flat, situated beside Haymarket Station, and an airport bus-stop. Princes Street is a 5 minutes walk, with Edinburgh Castle less than a mile away. Clean, modern kitchen, bathroom with shower. Good storage. Futon in living room can accommodate 2 extra guests.
Proximity to public transport is excellent - airport is a 20 minute bus journey away and the bus stops right outside the flat! The Haymarket railway station is right across the road and there are a multitude of local buses passing taking you into and beyond the city centre.
That said, the flat is a 5 minute walk from the shops, bars and restaurants of Edinburgh's New Town. It is also a similar distance from the historic Old Town which throughout August plays host to much of the Edinburgh Festival.
The flat itself is clean, bright and airy! There are 2 double bedrooms but the flat could sleep up to 6, utilising the futon in the open-plan living room / dining area.
There is ample clothes hanging space in each of the bedrooms. In addition, there is a hairdryer in both rooms as well as extra blankets and bedding for the futon, should you require it.
There is a washing machine and clothes horse, oven, hob and fridge. In addition, the dining table will accommodate 6 and there is crockery and glassware to facilitate this.

The location of this flat is what makes it special. It is equidistant from both the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh and each are only a short walk away. The route to each is well served with bars, restaurants and shops. It is a few minutes walk from the West End, with it's bars and boutiques and Princes Street is only a few minutes further away. Veer off in a slightly different direction and within the same time, you're in the heart of the Old Town - see the castle, visit some of the museums or just take in the street acts in the High Street during the Festival.
The flat is well placed for Murrayfield Stadium, which is a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction.
In the immediate area, there are an abundance of convenience stores (open late), cafes, restaurants and bars. Haymarket Terrace itself has a mini-supermarket, some gift shops, a beauty salon, a kilt shop and a rugby shop, to name a few!
Various local buses stop right outside the building, including the airport bus. From Haymarket Station, over the road, you can easily travel down to the wonderful beaches and golf courses of the East coast (about 20 minute journey) or to Glasgow (50 minute journey) or to the North.
Parking, should you need it, is on the roadside and is metered and payable per hour.
No smoking. No pets.
Nadia was extremely friendly and helpful, she made us feel right at home in Edinburgh. The flat is so close to the old town that we didn't even bother with transit most days. Very comfortable and made for a great vacation!
Dealing with Nadia was very easy and efficient.
This is one of the "plus" I have to remark, together with the perfect position of the flat: airport-bus, tram, train-station just out of the door and Murrayfield stadium easy to reach by foot.
On the other hand the flat was cold when we arrived and scarcely warm during next days: windows are not enough to keep away cold and windy weather . Beds are very comfortable, all the rest no more than basic.
Nadya was a wonderful host and the flat exceeded our expectations in every way. As we arrived she gave us a tour of the flat and had provided everything we needed. Nadya gave us lots of advice on places to visit in Edinburgh and answered all our questions. She also sent us a list of recommended cafes, bars and restaurants which came in very useful. The rooms were large and bright, and although it got slightly cold at night there were plenty of heaters to warm up the flat. We walked to and from the centre of town every day, and it took no longer than 20 minutes each way. Amazing trip would gladly stay there again!
nadia was really communicative before our stay and helpful when it came to handing over the keys etc. i would recommend the flat to anyone who simply needs a base in edinburgh - it is really well located and very clean and spacious but the flat is quite empty so not for those looking for a cosier experience.
Nadia was really helpful telling us Nice things to do. This AIRBNB is next to a bus stop which is great for transport to the center & airport. Good one!
We had a very good time in Edinburgh. The flat is very well located. The tram stop is just in front of the building. One tram stop away from Princes street. And there is some bus stop that are very useful. We didn't meet Nadia but his husband. They are very nice and gave us good indications to go to the flat from the airport. The only thing to know is that the windows are quite old so we can hear what happens on the street and they let the cold coming in the flat. Hopefully we had 3 electric rads to warm up.
O flat é ótimo e charmoso e se encontra exatamente como nas fotos. Tudo se encontrava impecavelmente limpo e tínhamos todos os itens básicos a nossa disposição o que foi perfeito para o período de Natal, pois pudemos fazer nossa própria ceia. A localização é ótima também: em frente à estação de trem e com vários supermercados próximos e perto do centro e dos pontos turísticos. Foi uma maravilhosa estadia. Recomendo!

I've been living in Edinburgh for nearly 20 years, having arrived to attend the University. Keenly interested in eating out, drinking out and all of the various arts and cultural events that Edinburgh hosts, I can hopefully point you in the right direction and help you find the Edinburgh you are looking for!
