The Space

Come stay with us in this traditional tenement building close to the city centre. Waverley station is only 10 minutes walk away. Most tourist and entertainment venues are within walking distance and you will not be short of restaurants, shops and attractions in the area. Virtually every bus route runs either past the door or within 5 minutes walk.

The flat has three bedroom and is occupied by the owner and a flatmate but we have a spare bedroom with a kingsize platform bed so come enjoy your stay with us in this convenient location. You will have access to the kitchen, bathroom (with bath and shower) as well as our shared living space.

The room is suitable for one, or two at a push and, in addition to the raised bed, accessible through a fixed ladder, there is also a writing desk, a chair and a wardrobe for storage. It's on a main road, so you should expect some traffic noise.

As we live here, we can advise on where to go, what to do, where to eat, dance, walk, enjoy shows, etc. So book your trip now and experience Edinburgh with the locals!

The flat is gay friendly and we are able to offer discounts for stays of more than a week - contact us with your dates and we'll send you an offer. If you are not planning on staying more than a week, go ahead and book if the calendar shows your dates are available.

  • J ai eu une très bonne expérience chez Éric. Très avenant, il m a tout expliqué.
    Le quartier était sympa, pas bruyant et proche de Princes Street.

  • It was a very nice and spacious room in a very central part of the city. The space was very clean and secure. Everything was in walking distance. Although we did not get a chance to meet Eric, he was very accommodating when we had any questions. Overall it was a great experience. Will definitely come back again when in Edinburgh!

  • Eric is really nice and gentle. He is caring that offered help when my wife got a bit sick. His home is warm and comfortable with a very nice living room. The location is prefect and we have a very good stay.

  • We had a great stay at Eric's place! The room and bathroom are very clean and the bedroom is very comfortable. The location is a wonderful bonus since you're very close to all of the tourist hotspots. Since the room is overlooking a main road there is some noise but it's very manageable unless you're extremely sensitive to that kind of thing. Eric himself is wonderfully kind and helpful and a great airbnb host. Would definitely recommend!

  • Eric is very friendly and easy going. He made me feel welcome. The apartment is very central (email hidden)ly neighbourghood. It has a lovely kind of bohemian decoration. I enjoyed having access to the kitchen.

Hi there, I'm in my early 40s and work in the internet industry. I enjoy travelling (mostly European city breaks), techno music and spending time with friends, as well as cooking vegetarian food. I spend quite a bit of time away for work so when I come back, I like my home comforts. Have started playing the piano again recently after a 30 year break. Ouch.
