This 3 bedroom flat is the perfect base to make the most of the Fringe Festival & Edinburgh. It is hard to find a closer flat to the main venues! We have 2 double bedrooms to let, at £65/night each, with shared bathroom.

The space

N.B. If interested in renting two double bedrooms (£65/night each) please message me! This listing is for 1 private double bedroom.

Chapel Street is in the Newington area of Edinburgh, very close to the old buildings of Edinburgh University. It is 15 minutes walk from Waverley train station and Princes Street, 10 minutes walk from the Royal Mile and 25-30 minutes by car or taxi from Edinburgh Airport.

The flat has 3 double bedrooms, two of which we are letting out with AirBNB. I (Andrew) am an Engineering student and will be in Edinburgh during the summer to manage the flat.

The apartment is an ideal base from which to make the most of the Fringe Festival in August. It would be hard to find a flat closer to the main venues! The Assembly Rooms, The Udderbelly and Pleasance are within 5 minutes walk away. There are bars, restaurants and cafés within a few minutes walk from the flat and a bus stop about 100 metres away with frequent and excellent links across the city.

Please message me for further details or questions!

Clean, amazing location (quiet considering how central it is) and host kept in regular contact about when another guest would be using the other room.

Great location (about 5 min walk to the National Museum of Scotland, 10 min to the Royal Mile, and about 15 min to the Waverley Bridge if you are taking the Airlink bus from the airport and want to save on cab fare), friendly and helpful host, good amenities, and clean. Would definitely stay here again!

Andrew's place is great! Me and my husband stay there during Fringe Festival and it was perfect. It's very clean the bed is very comfortable, has a huge living room and kitchen and location is great. Is right in the center but you can still have some peace at night. Next year we're going to the festival again and if this place is available we'll definitely stay there again.

The flat is centrally located, walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants and of course many of the Fringe venues. It's best described as "student accommodation", but we are pensioners and coped well with the 2 flights of stairs after walking all day and evening around the Fringe venues. I sleep with the window open so late in the evening we could hear happy people walking around. There's a large building being renovated opposite the flat so at 8am we could hear the noises of the workmen and their machinery. We're early risers anyway, but shutting the window helped reduce the noise. We spent very little time in the flat, but it was a great base. The kitchen is fully equipped, although we didn't use it. Andrew provides free tea and coffee. There's plenty of space to store food in the fridge and cupboards. Also there's a washing machine. There's a large lounge, but again we didn't use it. The shared bathroom was compact, very clean and the shower was great. Towels are provided. The bed was very good and the sheets were fantastic! Andrew was very good at responding to messages and texts. Our train was delayed by 2 hours, but he was around to show us the flat and hand us the keys. We were unable to lock our bedroom door, but we trusted the couple in the other bedroom. A great location and good facilities.
