Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed with Keith and Kaori for several weeks while in Edinburgh for study/research - they were great hosts, almost immediately it was like staying with friends or flatmates rather than strangers. This specific room is small, but comfortable, with high ceilings and a big window that counteract small square footage. They've rearranged furnishings in the room since photos were posted, so the bed's not right under the window, and it works well. Thanks for the movie nights and good company!!

  • What can I say about Kaori and Keith. I felt like home! They are very very special guys I had fun and they give you everything you need to get comfortable your stay in Edimbra. The room is very comfortable, the shower and toilet are close to the room where I stay, you can use kitchen and the (website hidden) if you need. And Kaori is a very good cook! With Keith they manage a Deli and she is so clever with preparing of japanese food and other delights. They are very friendly and of course I suggest to get in touch with them if you want to arrange a stay in this amazing town. Surely, after that experience you will back home aware to get two new good friends!
    Love you K&K - Stefano : )

  • This was my 2nd visit to the charming city of Edinburgh, when I chose to stay with Keith & Kaori again, but seizing the single room on this occasion. I knew the level of quietude to expect with these warm hosts, so I would strongly recommend this room for anyone planning to have either short or long stay in the city.

    A very comfortable & quiet room, in a house full of Japanese touches, like sliding doors, barefoot regulation..
    In short, you would enjoy a stay with interesting people, while feeling it as your home.

    My ample thanks guys, for your hospitality.

Japanese Cafe Owners
Hosts are keen to meet new people from all over the world and share the house. I am Scottish and my wife is Japanese, we are both laid back and quite well traveled. We love sharing what we know re Edinburgh and Scotland- e.g best places to go, eat etc and to hear about where your from too! We both work running a brand new Japanese Cafe, and also do a stall at the Sunday market and festivals -thats great fun! We often have food such as yummy chocolate croissants etc that we bring back from the cafe for our guests breakfasts. We also have a cat but she is very friendly and no trouble!
