Super Central, Spacious Bedroom

Apartment - Private room · Carnegie Ct, Edinburgh, EH8 9SN, United Kingdom

This fresh, spacious and clean sanctuary allows you to unwind after a day on the busy, cobbled streets of Edinburgh! Enjoy a comfortable bed in a quiet area just minutes to the city centre. Wake up to a great array of breakfast foods in the morning!

The Space

I would like to welcome you to a clean, spacious and pretty room which has a nice, new double bed, a dresser, bedside tables with great reading lamps, and a desk. It's also the biggest bedroom in my 2 bedroom flat (lucky you!).

My flat is a two-storey maisonette (kitchen/lounge/bathroom on the top floor) and has an awesome view of Arthur's Seat and the Salisbury Crags. Upstairs has the large living room with a fireplace, dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen and lovely bathroom with pedestal sink and bathtub. Hot water even comes out of the taps too! Overall, the flat is quiet, clean, tastefully decorated (if I do say so myself) and very central to the best spots. I love living here.

No matter what time of year you come, there is lots to see and do in Edinburgh! And you will be super central: 7 mins to the Royal Mile, 10 mins to Waverley Station, 3 mins to Tesco, 5 mins to the University of Edinburgh, 15 mins to New Town and only 12 mins to the Castle! No public transport for you!

As I have been a student for a long, long time, I am familiar with eating out on a tight budget. Nearby are dozens of great restaurants for all budgets (Kebab Mahal has the BEST shawarma!) and I can recommend great spots for any time of day... I am an expert eater & drinker. It's a special talent of mine.

My flat has gas central heating, a washing machine, a microwave, fireplace, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, and free unlimited WiFi. Street parking is available.

You will have your own key to come and go as you please. I'm often at Uni, or at work, or studying in the flat. I will provide an assortment of simple breakfast foods, coffee, tea, etc, (though I do recommend a full Scottish breakfast at a great restaurant less than 5 mins away!) Linens and towels are provided.

Please note: If you are booking more than 3 months in advance, please contact me before reserving the room!

I hope you can come and enjoy your stay with me, in one of the best cities in the UK!

Guest Access

You will have full access to my whole flat, with the exception of my bedroom. (But, c'mon, that would be creepy if I didn't say that).

Interaction with Guests

I am there as much as you want or need me! If you like to keep to yourself, then I will certainly not draw you into conversation. If you prefer to be social, I will be happy to chat with you about any topic under the sun!

The Neighborhood

The area along the Pleasance is very central and very safe, with the St. Leonard's Police Station just a block away. The building complex in which I live is clean, safe but comparatively modern (looks like a grey communist block built by Jo Stalin himself) in comparison to the pretty 19th century tenements. But to be fair, what do you care what the building looks like on the outside, when you're on the inside? The views of Arthur's Seat are magnificent and I wouldn't change it for the world.

Getting around

You don't need public transportation when you live in my flat! You can walk literally everywhere that is noteworthy, such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, Holyrood Palace, Grassmarket, Calton Hill, Princes Street and New Town. The only time you need public transport is to visit the Highlands or Roslyn Chapel. Not bad, eh?

  • I had a really great time staying at Chelsea's apartment. It's clean, tidy and spacious. Decorations are creative. The apartment is close to royal mile. Most attractions can be reached on foot. And Chelsea was very nice. Strongly recommended!

  • Clean, comfortable and a great location

    We stayed with Chelsea for two nights and can thoroughly recommend staying with her. It’s perfectly clean and tidy, with a large comfortable bedroom. Chelsea is really welcoming and helpful, and clearly puts a lot of effort into making her ‘tenants’ feel at comfortable. The location is great – just 10 minutes walk from the Royal Mile.

  • The location is clean and very comfortable. From here you can walk to every interesting points in Edinburgh. The bedroom is large and comfortable. Chelsea is very friendly and knows a lot of things to do in Edinburgh. It was an amazing time. Thanks a lot Chelsea!!

  • We've had a great time in Edinburgh! After walking on the top of the Arthur's Seat and having drinks at the pubs it was a pleasure to be at 'home'. Chelsea is an amazing host! She knows Edinburgh&attractions perfectly. Always willing to give you advice where to go! Flat is decorated by her, so it's cosy&adorable, most of the time she's out. From the lounge you have a beautiful view on Arthur's Seat. Our bedroom was amazing! Bed really comfy & big size!
    We'll recommend you to everyone Chelsea! Thank you ♥️ Xx

  • Chelsea was the perfect host! Her apartment is beautifully decorated and very clean. She gives some great tips about things to see, do and eat in Edinburgh. Her apartment is very centrally located and you can pretty much see all of Edinburgh city's sights by foot. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay with Chelsea again if we return to Edinburgh!

  • Chelsea is a really good host. my mum and I had nice days in Edinburgh. When we arrived in her house, she give us a map of Edinburgh and tell us where we can go and eat. Of course, her house very clear, I love her green doll. Her falt location very good, in the morning when sun rises outside the window like a painting. if you come to Edinburgh I strong recommend staying with her.

  • Chelsea's apartment was so comfortable, and she was a great hostess - she had a drawerful of helpful brochures, and a map on which she wrote all her suggestions. Highly, highly recommend staying with her!

    November 2013
  • Chelsea was an awesome host, and I really enjoyed staying with her. The room is large and warm, and the bed is very comfortable! The kitchen and living areas have amazing views of Arthur's Seat, and entire flat is spotlessly clean.

    Chelsea was very welcoming, and she was flexible with the check-in and check-out times. It was an absolute delight to stay with Chelsea, and I definitely recommend her place.

I am a Canadian student studying at the University of Edinburgh. I am completing a PhD in Second World War history. When I'm not reading my books, I am oftentimes down at the pub, shopping on Prince's Street or running (...walking) around Arthur's Seat. I love Scotland very much, and if I need a break, I visit the continent as much as I can. Loving Europe!
