Extremely central location, wonderful host who went above and beyond to help us with slightly difficult requests. House is not luxurious but was clean and we slept very well in the comfortable bed.

We stayed at Shaukat's place during the Fringe Festival. The location was perfect and within a short walk to everything we wanted to do in Edinburgh. As people stated in previous reviews this is a very basic simple rental and will meet all your needs if you are planning on being there to actually experience Edinburgh and not hang out in your rental. (For any Americans going think Red Roof Inn, Super 8 or Motel 6). There are two grocery stores located across the street. Very convenient! Shaukat is a great host! Our train was delayed due to cattle on the track and he was quick to respond to my emails assuring us he would be there to meet us. The entry to the apt is down a short alleyway and Shaukat was standing on the street, recognized me and called out. On a busy street in a new city that was very helpful! He assisted us in carrying our luggage up the two flights of stairs on the narrow winding stairway. During our stay i had to contact him twice because we had tripped a breaker (TIP: don't buy crappy converters!!) . He was quick to respond and very polite and helpful. We were headed out the first time and he came and fixed it for us while we were gone. The second time we were there and he showed us how to find the breaker and fix it.

We value proximity and walkability, so decided to stay close to the city center. This was a no frills place, great value for staying close to the attractions in Edinburgh. We were easily able to walk to most restaurants and sites within 10-15 minutes. Easy few flights of stairs up. The few minor issue for me was the beds, which creak with any movement. We did not shower or cook, but had a little issue with flushing the toilet as well. The flat sometimes smelled a little funny (maybe cigarettes), but was definitely tolerable and I felt still a great value for the price. Bring a flashlight if you will be arriving home late in the evening, as the hallway to the flat does not appear to be lighted. Thank you for a good stay!

Shaukat's apartment is centrally located in Edinburgh and within walkable distance to all major attractions. Shaukat was very helpful in assisting us check in.

Flat very well situated, close to the Royal Mile. Old building with the entrance through the backyard, not very fancy. No lift. Old flat that needs a renovation. For the purpose of just sleeping is ok, but no more.

This is a great flat in a convenient location, and Shaukat is a wonderful host. We were late arriving, and he was very patient, and even had stocked the kitchen with some basics. The flat is clean and bright, and very comfortable. But, the front room in particular had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke. We couldn't tell if it was from someone smoking in the building or not; the smell seemed to get better and worse regardless of whether we opened the windows. Otherwise, our stay would have been perfect.
