Second stay at Alexander's place and everything was as great as the first time. Clean, comfy, close to public transport, free parking, fully equipped kitchen, fantastic location.

This is one of those AirBandBs that is easy from start to finish. Great communication, super location in Leith (cafes, any kind of store you would want to find right out your door) A 5 min walk to a bus that takes you straight into downtown. Clean apartment well stocked kitchen,…

The bedding is not suitable for 4 adults-the beds are small and the one mattress needs to be replaced. The airbed is small and worthless if not completely inflated. The bathroom needs to be refurbished as the tile is shabby, the door lock is broken and the shower head apparatus n…

Response from Alexander:
The most disappointing aspect of Jim's negative review is that he didn't let me know any of the issues over the 11 day stay, despite stressing at check-in to give me a call if there was any problems. The quality of a guest's stay is very important to me. The shower was replaced for a brand-new unit 2 months ago and is working perfectly. I'll now address the mattress issue (1 year old) however in size they will remain a standard double (as stated in the listing) which is fine for most people and appropriate for the room size. The airbed is designed as an extra bed for children to sleep on, if Jim required a 3 bed apartment then he should have booked one I'm afraid. Sometimes people are new to AirBnB and expect a 4 star hotel at hostel prices. Of course Edinburgh is expensive in August, and expectations go up. However this apartment was priced at 50% of the cheapest 4 star hotel at this time of year.
