Barbara's place is great! She will welcome you and make you feel at home. Her place is close enough to everything you need to have a great time in Edinburgh.

A great stay! The pad was clean, cozy, and centrally located within a ten minute walk to basically everything you'd want to see. Barbara and her husband, Zee were both very accommodating, friendly, and available to make suggestions on where to go--they even provided breakfast. Add all this to the fact that the pad was aesthetically pleasing and you have a real find. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice flat located in the city centre. The flat is really tidy and quiet. The bed is big enough and quite comfortable. Extremely reasonable price, recommend it!

The place was great, I went with high expectations based on the pictures and was pleasantly surprised when it was better than I had assumed! It is ideally located, particularly to Arthurs seat which has fantastic views of the city and they were great hosts making me feel welcome and giving me great advise on where to go tailored to what I wanted to get out of my weekend trip! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh.

I had a great stay at Barbara's place. Although the other rooms in the house had guests, it was of no disturbance. The place is a good 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre but buses are easily available The house is equipped with all that you need and has good basic breakfast options. I really enjoyed drinking my morning coffee on their red couch in a sunny corner. Barbara and Zee were really helpful throughout the stay.
