My stay in Astra's apartment was great, a home away from home. The apartment is very well kept and delightfully decorated, everything seems very new. It was about a 20 min walk into town & there is a bus stop right outside the apartment. There are supermarkets close by as well as Fountainpark entertainment centre. Astra was a great host and I would absolutely stay here again.

Stayed for a week and it was a great base for exploring Edinburgh. Regular buses stopped just outside, though its only a short walk into the city centre. Apartment was comfortable and had everything you might need, there was even tea cakes and a pint of milk in the fridge on arrival so we could instantly have a cup of tea, which is great after 6 hours on the train. I would also recommend breakfast at Loudons which is just down the road!

Fantastic apartment. Really well equipped and very central. We loved our time there. It was cosy and homely and right beside the bus stop into town. Great location and excellent host.

Astra went above and beyond what was expected, making check in at 'ridiculous o'clock' (because of a late flight in) simple, and even bought a microwave as we were staying for a month. She responded on a timely basis and provided clean bedding regularly. The flat is incredibly conveniently located for both getting in and out of town.
