All our guests have commented on the 5* combination of quality of apartment and the location:

"We had stayed a few times in the Chester Residences on previous trips to Edinburgh in a neighbouring street, and would say that we preferred Steve & Karens. Despite being in the centre of the city the flat was exceptionally quiet, with both bedrooms at the rear, but we did not hear anything while in the living room either."

- Alan, 2017

Even when Scotland treats you to its ever-changing weather fronts we often do not stay in. Minutes away just a short walk into the city centre and on the way, you will find our local pubs and places we frequent when in the City.

The apartment offers not just comfortable sleeping options for our guests:
2 x King beds. We can provide one of our rooms with 2 singles please request during booking. . The bedrooms are set to the rear of the property so the noise of the city should not have an affect on how you sleep. These beds are super comfy I use hotel quality linen and towels and provide the essential items needed for holiday and business travel alike

The apartment has brand new appliances, smart heating & touch screen cooking to make for a comfortable stay.

Guest access

Guests will have full access to the entire apartment, and all contents within the flat are there for our guests use, including wifi & smart TV (Chromecast, NowTV).

Interaction with guests

The apartment is in the heart of the city centre's West End - a spectacular central area of Edinburgh, built between 1767 and 1850.

Only minutes walk away from Princes St, Charlotte Square and George St, the area is full of charming independent boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Being this central, the apartment is also extremely well positioned for both Waverley and Haymarket rail stations.

The area is also a great base for exploring Stockbridge and the Dean Village, as well as further afar, with easy west-of-city access to both the Forth Road Bridge/North and Glasgow/M8.

Great Georgian style apartment with high ceiling. Very clean and tastefully decorated. Really like the linens. It was raining during the days we stayed there, so we didn't have much chance to walk around. We used Uber and it is only a few pounds to get to most places from the apartment.

Steve and Karen's Place was comfortable and clean. Easy walking distance to most places and would recommend this property to others. Lovely aspect!

The apartment is right next to the city center, close enough to make access easy (5 min walk to Princess Street and tram station), and far enough to be quiet. Two king beds provide enough sleeping space for four people. Apartment was exactly as shown in the pictures. Overall a great experience for us.

Steve & Karen's place was perfect for our family of 4 to stay for a few days. It had everything we needed. It's very well designed & the location was only a short walk to all the amazing things the New Town has to offer and if you're adventurous you can also walk to the old town easily. They gave us really good restaurant recommendations too - always extremely helpful. They responded quickly and answered all of our questions. If we're lucky to go back to Edinburgh we would stay again. This was our first Airbnb experience & they set the bar high.

Steve & Karen's place delivered everything it promised and then some and if I start to list all the reasons how it will sound like they've paid to me say this. Simply put, its a gorgeous property, well managed and maintained in an unbeatable location. They were in touch throughout our trip too, so if you're travelling her for the first time you needn't feel alone! 10/10 would book again.

This is an amazing apartment in a beautiful and quiet part of Edinburgh. There are lots of shops, pubs and restaurants a short walk away, and for longer trips we had a taxi at the door in minutes. The apartment is spotless. The kitchen is well equipped with amazing brand new appliances; we cooked a number of meals during our stay. Highly recommended!

Steve and Karen were extremely helpful and responded to requests immediately. The flat was in a very convenient area. Our only gripe is that the sofas were very uncomfortable!

Response from Steve & Karen:
Thanks for staying, Lucy! We always appreciate feedback but the comment about the sofa is a little strange. We did so much to accommodate a lot of last minute changes so we would have preferred some private feedback. Steve and Karen :-)

We are a family of 4 and we live near Edinburgh. We have three properties that have recently been restored to immaculate condition. We pride ourselves on just being good down to earth people who want to make sure that we do what we can for you and ourselves to have a great Airbnb experience.

We often stay in Edinburgh when the apartments are vacant. We share our flats with you so you can enjoy Edinburgh as much as we do. Eating out, shopping and just attending events in the capital city.

The links to other parts of Scotland are fantastic. If you take a longer stay 4 days for instance one of those days, you could go to the city of Perth 1 1/2hrs away. Or Glasgow roughly the same. There are just so many things here in Scotland to enjoy but that’s your call. see you when you get here.
