Easy-going Finnish Hot Yoga instructor couple living in Edinburgh.
Really cool and spotlessly clean apartment. Never actually met Riku as he was home for Xmas, but his friend met us with the keys and also came to collect them which was a great help. The flat is a 15 min walk from Princes Street so is ideal for a stay in the city. I would highly recommend staying at Riku's if you are planning a trip to Edinburgh!
We stayed for 2 nights and the flat is really like it look likes. Super clean, stylish and colourful! It's near the city ceneter (just 10-15 minutes walk). We would definitely recommend this place to others. Thanks guy, Philipp & Silvia
We really enjoyed staying in Riku and Johanna's apartment which was extremely bright and clean. The walk from Waverley train station was 15 - 20 mins but straight forward. Make sure you read the instructions well how to find this apartment as we did not so found it difficult to locate. The only annoying factor during our stay was the people living above walking around at all hours of the night which kept us awake the first night. There are many pubs and restaurants nearby within walking distance of the apartment. We loved Edinburgh - so much to see and not enough time. Allow at least 3 hours for the castle and we recommend doing the bus tours around the city if you have limited time. The Gothic Spire is amazing.
I stayed at Riku's place for 4 nights and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Clean, cosy and central apartment, great hosts. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Riku and Johanna's apartment during our first visit to Edinburgh; it's warm and comfortable and is ideally located. Walking up to Prince's Street you pass all sorts of interesting cafes and shops. Carlton Hill and Arthur's Seat are close by, within easy walking distance. Riku gave us a very helpful 'low-down' of where to go and what to see. If you're planning a trip to the city, stay here; It was the icing on our cake!
Excellent accueil, appartement très "cosy", lits confortables, quartier commerçant avec quelques bons pubs, super séjour, nous sommes enchantés, merci Riku ! Lucie
We stayed at Riku's place for two nights and I can assure the room is super clean. He was helpful, giving us advice on pubs and nightlife since we were looking for the Edinburgh Playhouse (which is very close) and for a place where to watch football matches. The entrance is right in front of a restaurant called Maria's Kitchen: this way you can't go wrong finding the right gate. The house, stylish and colourful, is only a 10 min walk to Waverley Station where you can find Airlink buses to (and from) the airport.
Very nice appartment 10 minutes by foot away from the train station. The place was clean, cosy and in very good condition. Handover of keys was easy and it was easy to communicate with Riku. A very nice stay in Edinburgh.
Johanna and Riku were great hosts! The apartment is very clean and well located in a former primary school building. They really make everything to make guests feel comfortable and are very helpful. Thanks a lot!
Eu e minha esposa estivemos por 6 noites no Flat de Riku. Fomos muito bem recebidos e tratados. Os anfitriões foram muito simpáticos e atenciosos deixando-nos completamente a vontade para usar sua instalações residenciais.
Recomendamos efetivamente este local em Edinburgo.

Was a pleasure to host Riku & Johanna at our apartment! They are very nice, polite and very communicative persons! They left the apartmen very clean and tidy! I would definitely recommend them as guests to any host!
Riku and his girlfriend are really nice couple, communication and arranging the details with them was smooth and easy. The apartment was left clean and in order, I would definitely host Riku again! :)
Riku and Joanne were ideal, considerate house guests. It was lovely to meet them and to know such nice people are neighbours... I'm already planning to make a reservation at their flat when I have family come stay!
