The Space

Enjoy this centrally located Edinburgh flat for visit to the city. With free on-street parking this is an ideal spot from which you can explore and enjoy Edinburgh on foot.

Situated adjacent to Holyrood Park, Arthurs Seat (with it's stunning citywide views) and Holyrood Palace. The flat is only 10 mins walk to historic Edinburgh attractions on the Royal Mile with galleries, restaurants, cafes and pubs. Festival Venues such as The Pleasance and Princes Street are 20 minutes away.

The flat is located 15 mins walk from Waverly Train Station and a short walk from excellent bus service, with routes throughout the city from nearby London Road. Meadowbank Shopping centre with a good supermarket for your groceries is also on London Road, 5 minutes walk away.

As I'm working elsewhere for this time, my neighbour will welcome you on arrival/departure, hand over the key and answer any questions you may have about your stay in the flat and visiting the city in general.

This flat is cosy and compact and would ideally suit 2 people or a couple staying. It is a second floor, walk up in a modernised stair with central heating, a secure entry system and shared back garden.

  • Isabelle's flat was a perfect place to stay for us (an adult and a teen). There were enough space for both of us. The flat was cosy, clean, functional and only 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre. Isabelle was incredibly helpful and friendly host, even though it was a last minute reservation and she wasn't in the city. I highly recommend the flat!

  • Isabelle was an excellent host. She was very clear in rental expectations and a all around kind person to deal with. The flat was clean and bright, perfect for my 6 night stay while working at the Uni. One of the best features was being able to walk out the door and in one half block be in Holyrood Park where I could walk and walk to breathtaking views. The Royal Mile was also just a 10 minute walk. The kitchen, wash machine, and wifi were invaluable. I highly recommend this rental for short or long stays.

  • I do not recommend this flat. The second day I moved in, there were two mouse in the kitchen and living room. The flat is in an old building and the room is not very clean. The host does not keep the flat tidy so there exist mouse.

  • It is a wonderful flat to stay. The location is perfect. It is just next to Holyrood park and only 10 minutes walk to city center. There are some supermarkets nearby which I can get food and daily supplies easily. In addition, Isabelle is very helpful. She always reply my message quickly and offer some advice when I have problems.

    I highly recommend this flat.

  • The 2 story walk up flat is only about a 10-15 min walk from most activities. It was a clean and private accommodation with most of your basic necessities (i.e. toilet paper, washing machine, condiments, etc.) Amanda was very polite and helpful during our transition and provided appropriate information. A great way to spend your time in Scotland!

  • I've spend a very nice week in Edinburgh. The flat is located both in a calm area, 5 minutes by walk to a big supermarket and pretty close to the city centre.
    Everything in Isabelle's flat is very welcoming and confortable.When we arrived, not only the bed was made but a lot of little things was availble that let you time to go shooping (for instance toilet paper, pasta, sugar, salt, tea, coffee...).
    Moreover Isabelle has been completely available for any little problem concerning how things works within the flat.

    I would go back to this flat if I have the chance to spend more holiday in Edinburgh!

  • Isabelle's place is a very good choice when going to Edinburgh ! A great place to stay, tidy, very clean and very comfortable.

    Also, it is close to the Parliement, the Royal Mile and hence the city's heart.

    I will come back for sure !

  • Première étoile va pour la localisation de l'appartement qui est à quelques pas du Holyrood Park, on passe de l'autre côté du miroir : de la ville à la lande écossaise...
    Deuxième étoile: la laveuse à linge, et le séchoir : très pratique !
    Troisième étoile : installation confortable et sécuritaire.
    Quatrième étoile: Isabelle est une hôte agréable et organisée.

    On s'y est senti comme chez nous. Propreté, transports en commun à proximité, épicerie dans le quartier, voisinage agréable.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my week staying in Isabelle's flat. It was very cute, close to a grocery store, and a great place to stay. One note is that it is about 15-20 minutes walking to get into the heart of Edinburgh, but once I familiarized myself with the directions, it was an easy walk. Super safe neighborhood, quiet at night. I would highly recommend this place. Isabelle was also very responsive and flexible about the check-in and check-out times. Great place to stay when you're in Edinburgh!

  • This flat is the best! I stayed here for a full week with my boyfriend. It's very clean, quirky and charming but the best thing about it is the location. Arthur's Seat is practically in your back yard. Such a spectacular view and super fun to hike. Also, it is about a 5-10 minute walk from the beginning of the Royal Mile and a huge grocery store is even closer. Isabelle is super on the ball--very communicative. Great place to stay. Highly recommended.
