Interaction with guests

Host will be around during your stay. I will help where at all possible and only a phone call away - except if I am attending a festival show!

The neighbourhood

In close proximity to St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral the West End of Edinburgh has charm like New Town without the demand of getting uphill into the city! Princes Street is 10 minute walk away with Charlotte Square and smart George Street a a few minutes more. Ample choice of local bus transport (see below). City Cab app on mobile phone allows you to book a cab ahead of time.

Getting around

If planning to use public transport then may I suggest downloading 3 apps to your phone - 1. Edinburgh Bus app., 2 Edinburgh Bus and Tram App., and m-tickets app.: you will find each of these invaluable for getting around the city, from purchasing your tram & bus, including Airline service 100, tickets ahead of time. Edinburgh Bus and Tram app is useful in that it allows you to plan a journey by filling in details in answer to "I want to go to ..."

Other things to note

During Edinburgh Festivals, in month of August, expect the city to be bustling and vibrant with people from all places imaginable. Restaurants are best booked ahead if you want somewhere in particular. Street entertainment can be great fun but allow time to navigate if clock watching.

Irene was great. She gave us space when needed and information when we were lost with what to do. She always has a recommendation up her sleeve and you truly feel at home. The room was amazingly cosy and she provided more than enough for us to feel better than at a hotel.

We had a great time in Edinburgh. Irene is a great host and her house was perfect for us: in a convenient position to visit the main tourist destinations. We found all the comforts as if we were at home. Hope to come back soon!

I have a lovely stay at Irene's. Her home was well appointed, extremely clean and quiet. Slept very well in the large comfortable bed and it was amazing to have a private bathroom right outside the room. It's on the top floor so very private but was able to visit and have lively conversations w/ Irene too.

Irene is the most amazing host we have had so far! The house is in a perfect location in the heart of beautiful Edinburgh, it's so tidy and warm we couldn't ask for better! Irene sent us a detailed massage before our arrival on how to get to her house with every public transportation, she left us a map of the city on our bed and a lovely note to enjoy our stay :) she was beyond welcoming, generous and interesting to have a conversation with. We highly recommend to stay with her as you will have the best time ever.

Irene is a lovely lady and a brilliant host. She was helpful with directions from my first contact on airb&b and made me feel welcome in her beautiful home. Irene's home is in a great location, close to Haymarket station in the new town on a beautiful quiet street. The room is immaculate with gorgeous bed and bathroom linen. Everything is even nicer than the pictures. A comfortable stay, highly recommended! Thanks Irene.

Irene's place was comfortable and private in a walkable part of new town Edinburgh. We enjoyed our stay, especially that comfortable bed after a long day of walking!

I stayed at Irene's for two nights and it was one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had. Room and bathroom was just pure luxury! Irene is a lovely lady and will make sure you feel comfortable and at home. It was a stay I will remember.

Retired lady living in lovely West End of Edinburgh. This historic city spoils me with choice of theatre, cinema and concerts throughout the year. In summer months Edinburgh International Festival, Book Festival and Festival Fringe all invite participation which I really enjoy.
