The space
Location location location! This is a charming historic flat built in 1770 (we still have the original title deed!), but it's main feature is how close you are to everything! Just a 5 minute walk to either the Princes Street shops or the Calton Hill views.
The flat sleeps 7 across 4 rooms (2 x double beds, 1 room with 2 single beds & sofa). There is just one bathroom so you need to manage a bit!

Here's what a recent guest had to say:
“This is the best place I've ever stayed in on AirBnB. The flat was wonderfully cosy and comfortable, with some great extra features - loved the hidden door! Uwe was always easy to contact regarding check-in and check-out. We were all delighted by the flat and hope we get the opportunity to stay here again soon.”

Guest access
There is free WiFi (and we provide a cable for wired ethernet). You have a complete kitchen with all the usual utensils and kitchenware. There is a lovely small private garden in the front. Washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, TV digital box and DVD player.

Other things to note
IF YOU BOOK THIS AND HAVE NOT HEARD FROM US, PLEASE CONTACT US DIRECTLY AT LEAST A WEEK PRIOR TO ARRIVAL. AIRBNB ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS HAS FAILED TO RESPECT OUR GOOGLE CALENDAR AND PERMITTED IMPOSSIBLE BOOKINGS. This led to a 'surprise' guest appearing recently without warning, and of course we did not have availability; hence a '1' review which was essentially outwith our control

You can't be more central! You are in the hub of a thriving city - easy walk to pubs, restaurants, shops, convenience stores, cinemas, and many many attractions! During holiday seasons there are frequent fairs in nearby Princes Street gardens; and of course there is NO better location for the Edinburgh Festival
