Beautiful room in the pulsing heart of Edinburgh's lively and vibrant Old Town. 3 minutes walk from Waverley and Airport Bus, 1 minute walk from Royal Mile.

The floor in this flat is the original parquet from the National Portrait Gallery, as such I ask guests to take their outdoor shoes off indoors.

The space

Perfect for either individuals or couples who want to make the most of their time in Edinburgh.

It is only a 3 minute walk from both Edinburgh Waverley (main train station) and main connections to the airport (bus - 5 minutes to the tram).

On the doorstep there are numerous places to eat and drink, shows during the festival, sights such as Edinburgh Castle, St Giles Cathedral, Scottish Parliament and all other city centre attractions.

In addition to the bedroom guests can make use of bathroom.

Generally speaking, I'll be here during your visit, sometimes my very cute, polite and early to bed young child will be present too.

Guests who appreciate fine whiskies may be in for the occasional treat as I'm quite the aficionado.

If guests need or want recommendations for anything I am delighted to help out in anyway I can.

Edinburgh's Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage site, and rightly so, history and vibrance live side by side.

Within very short walking distance of The National Museum of Scotland, and the National Gallery of Scotland, and the National Portrait Gallery of Scotland, not to mention loads of other museums and galleries.

**Please appreciate that, as this is my home and my young child is often here too, I want to feel comfortable with guests so ask to have verified government ID and preferably reviews too. You can see from my reviews what to expect :)**

Guest access

In addition to the bedroom guests can make use of bathroom.

I don't list the kitchen, but feel free to get a glass of water or make a cup of tea.

My stay at Andrew's home has been perfect! The room was clean, with a lot of light and the house is in a real GREAT position to explore both old and new town just walking and enjoying the city! Andrew has been so kind helping me discovering the city, giving me advices and being always so nice. I felt like home and I fully recommend his place! Hope to come back soon!

You can’t beat the location! The Royal mile is just up the road and New Town a 10 minutes walk at most. The room was large and spacious and Andrew was great to accommodate both an early and late check in. He was prompt in communicating with us and the stay was a breeze. The apartment is one the 1st floor so if you have heavy bags like we did ( Andrew gave us a hand with those) just be mindful that (a) there is a steep uphill walk from the station and (b) 2 flights of stairs to content with. Or you could just travel light

Response from Andrew:
PLEASE read the 170 other reviews guests have left for me, ALL of this is so wrong that it is as if it has been written about somewhere else and not my home at all. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I explained to you the kitchen was full of stuff due to my home improvements in the 2 days before you arrived, it was untidy, but NOT dirty. The kitchen is also not listed for guests use. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The floors are clean, which is why I ask guests to remove their shoes. You did, your boyfriend didn't. I have mopped the floors since to remove any dirt your boyfriend carried through the place on his shoes. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The bed and the sheets are both the second most expensive ones that IKEA sell, they're both "Standard UK double". The sheets are the correct size for the bed. I really don't know what to say about this, this is just so entirely false it is as if you were talking about a different home. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After leaving a poop in the toilet for me to find it's very hypocritical to call my place dirty. I didn't find it though, my girlfriend did, which is only marginally better than my daughter finding it. I really don't know why an adult would leave an unflushed poop, but I'm entirely disgusted at it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have never said this to any guest before, but you're not welcome back in my place, ever.

If you want THE most convenient location in all of Dublin then Andrew's place is the place for you! It's 150 mts from the Airlink's final stop so getting to and from the airport is easy as pie. That's also the same place you hop into the hop on hop off buses and also next to the train station. Andrew's street itself is full Of options and there are several "closes" or narrow walkways that take you yo the royal mile which is right at the back ! Almost 90% of the restaurants are close by and New Town is a bridge crossing away! I could drop my shopping and keep going or take a power nap and keep touristing after. The bed is comfortable and the room and bathroom are clean. The hot water is nice and Andrew will lend you a heater if needed! Noise level is low for such a centric location. Andrew is a super accommodating host and will help you any way he can even though (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)! The apartment is humble and small, expect everything to be very basic but clean and functional. Again if you value location highly then everything else will do!

Also, I'm partial to fine whiskies and fondue.
