About This Listing
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.
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, should you require.
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.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you when you arrive, let you know where everything is and answer any questions you may have about Edinburgh and your stay. Beyond that, you may contact us if you have any queries but we will leave you to enjoy your visit!
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.
Merci à Nadia pour son accueil. Malgré notre arrivée tardive (22h00) elle a pris le temps de nous indiquer les meilleurs endroits à visiter ainsi que les restaurants et pubs d'Edimbourg en fonction de nos gouts.
L'appartement correspondait en tous points à la description et était idéalement situé (10min à pied du centre).
Agréable moment dans cet appartement même si nous y sommes restés que 2 nuits.
Nadia was very friendly and gave suggestions for dining and places to visit.she also let us check-in early after a long flight. As mentioned by others, it can be noisy if you are a light sleeper as it is just by the road. I was prepared and had a good rest with my earplugs. No complaints from me because the location was great; airport bus stops right at the door, train andtram station in front.
The apartment was clean and had all the things we needed for a comfortable stay. Thank you, Nadia!
Nadia was a really really really nice host. She helped us a lot to find city information.
Her apartment is near the city centre, clean and spacious.
Maybe is a bit cold in it, but there are heater in every room.
Beds are confortable, and wifi is perfectly functioning.
There werw clean sheets and towel for us.
I really enjoyed Edimburgh and Nadia's home!
Nadia was helpful right from the start. Even before landing she sent me a list of places to visit and gave me a heads up about the ins and outs of the city.
During our stay she was available via text and let us be. The place is nice and clean. There was plenty of sunlight and everything was near by. Super comfy beds too!
Thanks again Nadia and sorry about the glass!
Nadia was an excellent host. Perfect communication before and during our arrival and flexibility in managing our changing arrival time.
The flat is located in a good central area, it is on a busy road and there is traffic noise but it is great for transport links.
Inside the flat is basic but nice, for the price of a good hostel you are getting the freedom of your own flat.
Neighborhood is fine and amenities close by excellent, there are 2 supermarkets and numerous bars and restaurants. Nadia provided a list of great recommendations.
Overall a good stay in the flat and an excellent responsive and accommodating host.
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.

About the Host, Nadia
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!
