PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING. This is a small yet functional double room that looks out onto London Rd. The price reflects the fact that it's a simple room and can get noisy as it is next to a road. This room has a shared bathroom with us (Dave and Tokes). We have another room that has ensuite. Check out our reviews and our other room!

The space

We are a creative couple (two men) and we have tried to make our flat homely, comfortable and reflect our creative interests! The room has a comfortable double bed (new bed and mattress), a small vintage wardrobe, table and chairs and large wooden mirror. The window looks out onto what can be a busy road and buses pass right outside the window. However, if you are looking for a reasonably priced bed for the night in a central location then this is the perfect choice. Many of our guests have said the noise is not a problem - see the reviews. We also have a larger room with private bathroom available - see Central King Size with Private Bathroom.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the shared living room, kitchen and the bathroom. The kitchen is small yet fully equipped with a cooker, microwave, washing machine and fridge-freezer - all of which you are welcome to use. The main bathroom has just been renovated and you share with us (the other room has a private bathroom). Our living room is an eclectic mix of old and new artefacts and you are invited to come and peruse our extensive range of books or check out our vinyl collection. If the sun does shine for you then you can pop out to sit in the front/back garden. We also have plenty of umbrellas for Scotland's most typical weather!

Interaction with guests

How much we interact with our guests is up to you. We are both busy during the day until late evening, but then we are around and cooking dinner and are happy to hang out, chat and offer advice on the city and Scotland.

Other things to note

We would be happy to provide a simple breakfast of tea, coffee, toast, cereal and orange juice.
All bedding and towels are also provided.
This room has a shared bathroom.
Please note we have another double room that is larger and has an ensuite. There may be other guests in the flat.

We both usually work Monday to Friday 8am-5pm, so we expect guests not to make noise after 10pm or before 9am during their stay to prevent disturbing other guests and neighbours. Please do not use hairdryers after 10pm. Please close doors quietly. We would ask guests not to use the shower after 10pm at night and not to smoke in the flat. Please keep the kitchen door closed if you are using it early in the morning.
Check in is usually after 5pm but let us know and we can try and accommodate you best we can. Please note that we have another double room available for renting so may have more guests.

We only had a brief visit but Dave and Tokes made us feel incredibly welcomed. They had thought of everything and went above and beyond to make us feel at home. We'll certainly be back to Edinburgh for a longer stay to explore the incredible city and will definitely be staying with Dave and Tokes again!

This place is wonderful and the hosts are charming. If you ever worried about only renting a room instead of an entire flat, you will find out that it can be most enjoyable in a beautiful and friendly environment like this. Highly recommended!

This was our first experience renting just a room on Airbnb and, to be honest, we were apprehensive. But Dave & Tokes were amazing hosts and made us feel totally at home and literally gave us everything we needed to make our stay there perfect. A gorgeous flat, beautifully decorated and ideally located. Be back soon.

Fabulous place to stay! Dave and Tokes are so helpful and friendly and gave us lots of advice about what to do, buses etc. The bed is very comfortable, they provide things for a continental breakfast (croissants, cereal, toast, yoghurt, cheese). The house is really quirky with interesting interior design.

This is by far the best Airbnb I have stayed in; Dave and Tokes went above and beyond to ensure we were made to feel wholly welcome. They let us drop bags off early so we could explore the Fringe Festival bag-less and they provided us with a gorgeous room with one of the comfiest beds ever. The bathroom was always spotless and the shower ran excellently. They provided us with juice, bread, croissants and cereal for breakfast in a very well-equipped kitchen. Dave ans Tokes were exceptional hosts, always checking up on us and always there if we needed anything. Filled with the perfect assembly of lovely decor, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you for such a marvellous trip. Isaac and Florrie

Absolutely loved our stay there! Dave and Tokes welcomed us very warmly and with great hospitality. The communication before and throughout our stay was very good. The room and entire flat are beautifully set up and decorated and very cosy, perfect in every little detail. They also provided a great breakfast in the morning. Definitely a great place to stay in the centre of beautiful Edinburgh!

Probably the best air bnb experience we've ever had, and after visiting 21 countries across the world that's quite a statement. Dave and Tokes honestly went above and beyond to accommodate for us. Even buying us special items for breakfast as we are vegan. The most beautifully decorated home and a wonderfully comfy bed. We hope to return soon! X
