About this listing
One bed top floor flat on a lively area off Quayside. You reach the shops, galleries and nightlife of Newcastle in just 10 minutes. You're also on the doorstep of the iconic Millennium and Tyne Bridges, as well as the Sage concert hall.

On a dark night the city lights up and you can see over the roof tops of the city centre. On a clear morning you can see all the way to green hills beyond the river. The area is lively - Newcastle is a city that wakes up at night. From the flat you can get to the Quayside (River Tyne) or city centre in 5 minutes. The fabulous concert hall "the Sage" and Millennium Bridge are also only a few steps away. The flat is near great transport links: a taxi brings you there in 20 mins (£17), the Central Railway Station is 15 min walk away (£4 on taxi) and the Manors metro station is less than 5 mins away.
My top priorities, when offering my guests a pleasant stay, are cleanliness, reliability and most of all - a warm welcome. I will provide you with lots of information about Newcastle and the surrounding towns. I'll do my best to find good time to show you around if you wish.
For the light sleepers, I suggest a pair of ear plugs, as Newcastle city centre is much very alive at night. Anywhere around the centre you may hear the occasional "Woohoo" coming from the streets now and then. My neighbours in the building are the quiet and respectful type.
If you have been happy with the booking, please leave a reference :) Thank you!

A lovely flat with a super-comfortable bed – an ideal base for exploring the beautiful city of Newcastle! I didn't meet Rosa but she was a brilliant host nonetheless, giving me lots of information in advance and leaving helpful tips on things to see and places to eat and drink. Thank you!
I stayed at Rosa's place for a couple of days and it was perfect. It's a lovely spacious flat and an excellent location. Though I never actually had the chance to meet her, Rosa was the perfect host and provided so much useful information prior to my arrival, which was really helpful as I'd never visited Newcastle before. Would highly recommend!
Rosa was a great host who thought of everything we could have needed. She left a thoughtful description of amenities that were in the area including directions to a phamacy we needed. There was milk, tea, coffee and the fresh mint and lemon was very touching. Fast and friendly responses. The house was well stocked and very comfortable. We could not have asked for more.
The apartment is exactly as described. It is perfect for a couple; cosy, quiet, clean and ideally located in Newcastle (walking distance from city center, Quayside, Grey st, etc.).
Rosa was very helpful, quick to answer and full of advice on what to do and where to go. Her instructions could not have been more clear.
We felt already welcomed before landing at Newcastle. Rosa prepared for us the travel adapters, a hair dryer and even two pairs of slippers!
Rosa is a great host, we certainly recommend this apartment to other visitors.
Hi Othman, thank you again so much for your stay and for looking after my home so well. It was brilliant to return home after a trip away to find a gift too! So unexpected and so wonderful :) Thank you also for the informative review, I hope may visitors contemplating whether to book will find it helpful. Brought a smile on my face. Cheers, R
Rosa is a lovely lady and equally has a flat that is not only homely but within a 10 minute walk of the bars, shops and restaurants of Newcastle City Centre. The flat was clean and tidy and I found Rosa to be a very accommodating and welcoming host. Thank you for the wine and the coffee too! I will probably stay there again on my next visit to Newcastle. Many thanks Rosa! Brian from London
Rosa was ever so helpful and welcoming! Making sure everything was catered for! This helped us have a great weekend and the little guide she had put together was awesome!
The flat is situated in such a central location that we were 5-10 minutes walk to everything in Newcastle. Flat was absolutely gorgeous and spacious and well worth every single penny. Rosa was so great to communicate with and helped us so much by advising where to go and what to do in Newcastle. I left a pair of my GHDs behind and she was so kind to put in the post for me.
I would definitely recommend Newcastle to everyone and accommodation wise, you cant go wrong with this flat as its so cosy, lovely and central. Me and my friend had the nicest time and hopefully will be coming back soon.
About the Host, Rosa Newcastle
Hi, I'm Raisa. I live and work in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. I host on AirBnB but will also start finding accommodation for our future trips through this website. I'm into sport, martial arts in particular. I also compete in Taekwondo.
From my holidays I wish time to relax and to be able to switch off. I enjoy museums and eating out. I like sightseeing and sitting in a cafe watching the world go by.
Hope to hear from you and your experiences too,
