Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay with Janie. She was a welcoming host, a good conversationalist, and made us feel very much at home. The room was quiet, cosy and light, and sharing the bathroom was never a problem. After six weeks of travelling, eating out was losing its appeal, so we were able to use the kitchen and microwave to heat and eat some meals. Janie provided muesli, yoghurt, breads, spreads and fruit for a healthy breakfast, and we were able to use the washing machine to wash some clothes. The location was great, easy to get to from Edinburgh Waverley station, and close enough for walking to and from town. The bus service is frequent and easy, just one block from Janie's flat. We would recommend this room if you are staying in Edinburgh, and Janie as a great host.

  • Unbelievably beautiful, stylish and cosy flat brilliantly decorated with an awesome taste and vision. All needed (and even more) facilities were provided. Convenient location of the flat allows to visit virtually any part of Edinburgh practically only on foot. Neighborhood is full of little shops, pubs, pizzerias and other nice places. Edinburgh by itself is absolutely awesome place and Janie's flat is perfect spot to stay and explore the city! Janie proved herself as an wonderfully prepared and hospitable host with her warm reception and all those maps, touristic brochures and other nice trivial matters. Unfortunately we haven't spent more time together because of Janie's work but all our communication was very pleasant. It was an awesome experience and time which left only pleasant memories and willing to come back again. Definitely recommend this accommodation. Thanks for all!

  • It was great being at Janie's. We had a warm welcome and she gave us plenty of good advice. The flat is quite close to the city centre and there are many shops and pubs in the area. The room was large, comfortable and well decorated. We are not disapointed at all and would be pleased to come back !

  • Had a great 4 days in Edinburgh while on holiday. Janie was an impeccable host, lots of great tips and yummy food for breakfast! Felt like a home away from home. The location was great too, I walked everywhere from here (20 mins into the main part of town) but also a good base to go for a jog. Highly recommended!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Janie's. Janie is very helpful and great company and the house is lovely, just a short walk away from both the old part of town and the waterfront.

  • We had a very nice stay with Janie. She gave us some nice tips and the breakfast was very nice as well.
    The apartment was quite conveniently located, just 10 minutes walking from the center. Also there are some nice restaurants in the immediate vicinity.
    I would definitely stay with her again when in Edinbrugh.

  • Janie was a perfect host, very nice and friendly and her place was great. We won't forget the lovely kitchen and the cosy sofa that served as bed - very comfortable and feel-as-home. The position of the flat is superb, you needn't take the bus to/from the city centre, it's a quick walk and everything you may need is just around the corner. Thank you again, Janie! :)

  • A friend and I stayed with Janie from the 8th-11th march and we found her to be an incredibly warm and hospitable host. She was very proactive in helping us settle in, always providing us with useful information to get to the city and to places of interest. I would strongly recommend anyone going to Edinburgh, to stay with her!

  • We felt so at home at Jamie's! We spent the most comfortable few days...Jamie was such a thoughtful caring host. We had a delay and arrived late at night and found Jamie still ready to welcome us. The apartment is really cute ad homely and so comfortably central - a 10 minute bus ride from city centre. We enjoyed our friendly chats with Jamie and she went out of her way to make us feel at home and give us useful information about sightseeing in Edinburgh. We strongly recommend it. Thanks Jamie for everything!

Originally from Berlin, Germany, I have lived mainly in Edinburgh and a stint in San Francisco over the last 16 years. I love Edinburgh and all its beautiful sights and the buzz it has during the festival. I also enjoy meeting new people from all over the world, so thought I could offer comfortable and convenient accommodation available to people who are interested in enjoying all Edinburgh has to offer, especially during the festival.
