About this listing

Double bedroom in tastefully decorated Victorian tenement in quiet Polwarth area. Bright and airy flat with large living room, modern kitchen and newly refurbished bathroom. Close to park and 20 mins walk to town centre and main festival venues.

The space

Good sized and comfortable double bedroom with large wardrobe and desk. Large double glazed window ensures room is bright and airy. Room is backward facing so nice and quiet for a restful night's sleep.

Room is in a two bedroom flat on the 2nd floor, where I live with my dog (available to be taken for walks in local park!) Guests have access to large and spacious living room with smart TV, sound system with docking station and dining table, as well as modern fully equipped kitchen and newly refurbished bright and clean bathroom.

Perfect base for exploring Edinburgh and the festival on foot or using local bus services (nearest bus stop with routes in to town is 2 minutes walk). 15 mins walk from Haymarket station. Plenty of options for food and drink nearby.

Guest access

Guests have access to modern fully equipped kitchen with all the necessary amenities and newly refurbished bathroom that is shared with the owner and use of the bright spacious living room. Free Wifi.

Interaction with guests

This is my home so generally around for a cup of tea or a glass of wine to help you settle in.

I'm available to give tips on must see local attractions as well as local bars and restaurants to make the most of your stay in the beautiful City of Edinburgh.

If visiting during the festival can give you tips on the best places to go to enjoy the amazing atmosphere in the City during August, as well as helping you to book shows and get around the 100s of venues!

Other things to note

I share my flat with my dog George, who is very friendly and loves meeting new people (and never says no to a walk!)

Caroline is a most gracious host, and has a beautiful home. The room was exactly as described, and I was made to feel most welcome. Caroline has a very sweet little dog, who loves making new friends.

Caroline's clean and friendly flat was near the center. It was good location. We loved her clever puppy. We loved her room and flat. :-)

We stayed at Caroline's for 5 nights. We met her during our check in and she was very nice and friendly. She didn't live with us while we were there, we shared the flat with a couple of her friends instead. They were nice people, but we didn't see them much because we were always out. The flat is just lovely, quite, clean and with modern furniture. The bathroom was clean, with a shower inside the tub and a mixer faucet. Our room was big with carpet and the bed was quite comfortable. The location is also good for transportation: the nearest bus stop is two minutes walk and from there you can take a bus to the airport or the city centre. We had a really pleasant staying and we recommend Caroline's flat to enjoy your trip to Edinburgh!

Our stay at Caroline's was a really pleasant experience. She is a wonderful host that makes you feel at home, so friendly and helpful! The room is really comfortable, with a lot of space for storage and bright tasteful decoration. The location is great, outside you have buses straight to the city centre and you can take a walk there too. Caroline made sure we had everything we needed and even more. She treated us not only as guests but as family members. We would definitely reccommend her place as a number one in Edinburgh either for a leisure weekend or longer trip to the city.

Absolutely lovely place to stay! Host was so accommodating and friendly! The room looked even better in person than in the photographs and the whole apartment was beautifully decorated and spotless! Would definitely recommend this place to anybody wanting a more homely place to stay when they visit Edinburgh :)
