The space

Its a traditional top floor flat, with historic ceiling decoration of over 125 years old. In this building there is no lift.
I would say its a very Edinburgh Style tenement flat, but upgraded with modern requirements without losing its historic character.

Guest access

The whole flat will be available apart from 1 cupboard. So its very open.

Interaction with guests

Yes, i can offer advice, and will leave some guides and information of what to do in and around Edinburgh.

Getting around

There is a bus stop 1 minute walking from the flat to get you into the city centre, but its only a 15 minute walk of you wish.
Also its 5 minutes by Taxi from Waverley Train station, or 40 minutes by taxi from the airport.

Other things to note

The flat is on the top floor of a 4 level building. There is no lift.

The flat was as described, very clean, 10 minutes away from Hollyrood park and 15 minutes from the tram to the airport. Ricardo was really helpful in agreeing to an early check-in, as well as in giving us useful information for our stay.

As this was our first time using Airbnb, Ricardo's apartment met all our expectations! It was our first time in Edinburgh and the location of the apartment made our experience a lot better. We were able to visit famous places such as the Calton Hill, Arthur's Seat, Scottish Parliament within a walkable distance (15 mins or less) and from there to the Edinburgh Castle and many stores. Ricardo gave us a lot of information about places to visit and recommended good restaurants. We had to change our check in times around, however Ricardo was very considerate and flexible about it. The apartment is very clean and it has all the essentials you would need for your stay. Ricardo was helpful and ready to help if we needed anything, as he lived just 5 mins away from the apartment. There is no parking space for the apartment, however there are many free parking spots within 2-3 mins walk.

Great location, only a 10 minute walk to the playhouse. Apartment was basic but clean and ideal for a nights stay in the city. Ricardo was great and gave details about the surrounding area including closest shops etc.

Great place to stay near the city center. Ricardo is really a kind person, easy to contact and really friendly. It would be nice to have some shower gel and shampoo in the bathroom.
