A spacious one bedroom, ground floor flat in a quiet part of town with a back garden. You are in a diverse neighbourhood with excellent ethnic restaurants and cafes, and direct transport links to city centre: 20 minutes by bus or 30 min on foot. You will have a spacious living room with a comfortable sofa-bed. The kitchen opens up to the living area and includes a gas hob, a fridge, and washing machine. The double bedroom has an extra folding bed. The modern shower room is across the hallway.

The space

The flat is located in a great area, only a short walking distance from the attractions of the city centre. Princes Street is only 18 mins away by bus or half an hour on foot.

Guests can make the most of the spacious living, the sofa doubles as a bed with proper spring mattress and can be easily folded away during the day. The kitchenette opens into the living area and includes a gas cooker, fridge and washing machine that you can use during your stay.

The bedroom is only a skip across the hallway. In there you'll find a comfortable double bed with foam mattress and a folding single bed, if needed. My cleaners place fresh, hotel-quality linen and towels on your bed prior to arrival.

The modern and bright bathroom is situated right next to the bedroom and is equipped with a power shower and the toiletries for your use.

There is a spacious corridor for you to drop off your luggage and put up your coats, boots and brollies (as is often the case in Edinburgh!)

Other things to note

The flat is in a good location,20 minutes walk to city centre and within 30 to 40 minutes by bus to the airport. The kitchen ,living room,bedroom and bathroom are fully fitted and with everything you might need. There was no TV ,which I found it a bit weird ,but my wife loves not having one. The flat was very clean throughout and had very good internet connection.

Great place to stay, easy to find and in an interesting part of town, near a wide boulevard called Leith Walk. It is about a 25 minute walk to Princes street. Lots of cafes and restaurants as well as interesting Polish and Chinese food shops. The apartment itself was very clean and all the beds were made up for us and it was very peaceful to sleep there during our stay. The wifi worked fine and given we were five people the beds were all comfortable including the sofa bed. There is a large Tescos 9 minutes walk away.

I travel a lot for work (primarily within UK and occasionally abroad) and a lot more for pleasure. I'm an easy going, music breathing, art and photography loving vegetarian. I love history and getting lost in the little streets, and have no problems in doing the touristy things - they are popular for a reason. As a guest, I tend to be away exploring most of the time. I prefer not to drive so any tips on public transport/walking are much appreciated. I don't smoke.

As a host, I will be delighted to welcome in either the Leith flat with garden views or my central Tollcross flat. All I ask of you s to treat my place as a home - both are in residential areas with families, so wild parties will disrupt everyone around you. I hope you have a great time and let me know if I can help with tips or advice during your stay.
