About this listing
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.
You will have access to all the areas shown in the photos. I do also have a private study / living area which I will ask you to respect, mostly because it is very messy!
Interaction with Guests
I am away for work quite a lot so you may find that I am not around during some or all of your stay. I'm still able to accommodate most reasonable arrival times but it's best to let me know at the time of enquiry if you are planning on arriving earlier than 11am or after 9pm. If you are looking for lots of interaction, do check if I will be around before booking. I enjoy spending time with guests when my schedule allows it.
As this is a flat share, we encourage you to clean up after yourself and be respectful towards other occupants. Nothing more, we're pretty relaxed. We welcome guests from all backgrounds, sexualities and gender identities; and expect you to be the same.
We provide tea, coffee and milk for your use in the kitchen. Please do help yourself to this at your convenience. Breakfast is not included but you are more than welcome to make you own or indeed use the kitchen for any meal.
Ich kam ein wenig früher an als geplant und wurde dennoch sehr nett empfangen. Alles unkompliziert und freundlich. Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral, 5-10 Minuten zum St. Andrew Square, 10-15 Minuten zur Waverley Station. Das Zimmer ist durch das Hochbett recht geräumig, das Bett luxuriös breit, nur etwas knapp unter der Decke. Alles tip top sauber, auch das Bad übrigens, das ist wohl auch recht neu gemacht. Alles da, was man braucht. Hatte einen sehr lustigen Abend mit Eric, die anderen beiden Mitbewohner habe ich kaum gesehen. Absolut empfehlenswert!
Every thing was good, and the house were organized and the bedroom was exactly the same of the ad. The localization was great, near of all turistics points and facilities (supermarkets and restaurants).
Thanks for all!
This is a wonderful little place to stay in Edinburgh! The room I stayed in was absolutely lovely, Eric really does a fine job of making you feel welcomed. There was a lovely note and chocolate waiting for us. The flat is amazing, perfectly described. I wish I had more time to just hangout in the music room. The next time I'm in town, I hope I'll be able to stay here again!
A friend and I enjoyed staying at Eric's flat as it was very close to central and everywhere was within walking distance! The room was cosy, and looks out onto the street. We loved the upper deck bed as it was very unique!
La chambre correspond aux photos. Elle est propre, bien que très petite. Par contre, la cuisine, encombrée, ne nous a pas donné envie de faire à manger.
It is a central and nice flat, although we did not quite feel confortable with the general enviroment in the flat. It might just not be our cup of tea. I am sure some people might appreciate it more than us.
Eric was very understanding for our situation which we really appreciated.
Eric is great (though I only met him briefly) -- very friendly and welcoming. And the room and flat are just as described and pictured: quirky, homey, comfortable, clean, and super well-located. I appreciated being able to make myself at home there, and slept soundly in the comfy loft bed despite traffic noise from the street.

About the Host, Eric
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.
