About this listing

My place is close to a great selection of local cafes and restaurants, easy access to the City Centre and festival and fringe venues, is within sight of the famous volcanic landmark, Arthurs Seat and an easy walk there as well as the famous Calton Hill viewpoint.. You’ll love my place because of its convenient location, its mixed ethnic and bohemian population and the low prices charged in local cafes and bars. My flat is bright, clean and homely and my spare room freshly painted and carpetted. There are great views over the river to Fife from my living room window. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers although I have to let you know that the bed is a small double built over a storage space in an alcove so it has to be climbed into.

Guest access

Guests share my well appointed shower room with myself. Towels are provided and the shower room is cleaned daily.
Guests can use my kitchen and dining space for making drinks and snacks

Interaction with guests

I am often around during daytime to interact and offer advice to guests, but I like to let them have their space and come and go as they please

Other things to note

The flat is on the 3rd level of a traditional tenement so unsuitable for those with mobility issues

Helen is an amazing host, very welcoming and positive. She gave us some hints about where to go in Edinburgh and which hidden gems we should not miss and also prepared a breakfast for us in the meantime. Her place is very clean and cosy and in walking distance to the city centre. Thank you and see you soon, Helen!

It was a lovely stay for us, quiet and peacefull place and located near the center, very easy to walk once you get a map. Helen was an adorable person and welcomed us very kindly. We'll be back soon to Edimburgh and we will definetely try to book this place again.

Helen is a welcoming and warm host, who will make you feel at home. Good company for a theatre show too;) The room is bright and colourful. If you like walking, the location is walkable to the centre.

Helen is a great host who went beyond what we expected and her apartment is really cosy and homely. Buses do stop right at her door, making it really convenient to travel to the city. (You could walk like us. Takes us about 10 to 15 mins to get to the Royal Mile.) Do note that there isn't a lift and her apartment is several floors up. It wasn't a problem for us though! Overall a really great stay and we really enjoyed ourselves. :)
