Alex's period flat has a lot of character and is centrally located. The bedroom is huge and the wide window provides an immersive experience. Alex is a chilled out person and fun to talk to. I wish him all the best and recommend his flat to the travellers around the world.

We enjoyed our stay with Alex very much! He was extremely welcoming and helpful with getting to know the area. The location of the apartment is so central that we did not use public transportation at all during our stay in the city but rather were able to walk everywhere!

Alex was a wonderful host and his flat is a great place to experience Edinburgh. When I arrived Alex was kind enough to take a large amount of his lunch break to sit down with me and give me the layout of the city and give numerous suggestions of where to eat, drink, and visit. Alex's flat is just as described and is in a great location to walk to both old and new town. I couldn't recommend his place more, a true gentleman of a host and a beautiful flat to stay in.

Alex was a great and gracious host! He was flexible with check-in and was kind enough to send us a long list of places to go and things to see in Edinburgh. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Highly recommend!

I work in Edinburgh as a buyer/seller of dried fruits, nuts and seeds for an import company. So if you like sultanas, I'm your man.
I travel a bit for work. I travel as much as I can for fun.
