My place is close to Hollyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament Buildings are a stunning 10 walk through Hollywood park and the foot of the Royal Mile. I'm renting out a large private room in my flat, there is a shared livingroom and seperate Kitchen

The space

Its a bright and spacious double room in a beautiful traditional Edinburgh apartment. Its a bright spacious apartment with plenty of character and great views. Its 10 minuted walk to the centre of the city although can feel like a very relaxed spot to dissapear to escape the maddness!

Great host! Walked us to town, described the sights, full of fun facts. Place was clean, quiet, fantastic location close to Royal Mile.

The apartment was exactly as we expected, and as described in the ad. James was very welcoming and was easy to join by phone, which reassured us a lot. The area is safe and calm, towels and mini soaps were waiting for us on the bed. Thank you very much!

James was a wonderful host, and made us feel very welcome! He helped us decide places we needed to see while we were at Edinburgh, and gave us free rein of his house. The room is as comfortable as advised, and his place is pretty close to the major tourist spots in central Edinburgh. Definitely would book again if I plan to visit Edinburgh again.

James war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. All unsere Fragen hat er nett beantwortet und uns sogar Pubs und Sehenswürdigkeiten empfohlen. In seiner Wohnung stand uns alles zur Verfügung was er auch nutzt und auch das Wohnzimmer konnten wir mit ihm zusammen nutzen. Küchenzeile, Bad mit Dusche, Wohnzimmer mit Fernseher und Sofa und Zimmer mit Kleiderschrank waren alles vorhanden. Auch dass wir nachts angereist und abgereist sind war überhaupt kein Problem! Hat alles super geklappt! Das einzige Negative an der Unterkunft ist die Sauberkeit und Hygiene... Diese wird nach Belieben des Gastgebers eingehalten und entspricht nicht jedem seiner Ansprüche, sowie auch nicht unbedingt unserem. Aber dafür zahlt man eben auch nicht so viel pro Nacht. Aber alles in allem waren wir zufrieden mit unserem Aufenthalt dort. Die Unterkunft hat eine super Lage, direkt am Arthur Seat und nur ein paar Minuten von der Busstation entfernt.
