Great check-in experience90% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

This is a wee, light and sunny room with a double bed, in my home, which is ideal for one and cosy for 2 . It's situated on a quiet tree-lined street close to the Meadows Park and is near many places to eat and drink in a buzzy part of Edinburgh's Southside which is the older area of town. The Royal Mile is a 20 minute walk away as is Waverley Station and the foot of Arthur's Seat.

Gillian's place is lovely. Easy walk to center of town and right next to a great park! I was unprepared for the cold in Edinburgh when I was there and the room is very warm with a heated blanket that saved me! Easy to communicate needs with Gillian.

I booked a 1-night stay at Gillian’s flat — the host answered quickly to my questions and I had no issues with the booking process. Gillian’s flat is stylish and well-kept, the room itself was cozy and warm, the bathroom was very clean with abundance of towels. The area is extre…

Beautiful, absolutely cozy place to stay if you are travelling alone. The notorious cold weather of Scotland won't do you any harm in this flat because the host has an extra heater with warm-mat(?) for the bed as well. Blueray disc of Dowton abbey was perfect, beddings were fluff…

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

Edinburgh is a small city with beautiful architecture and perfectly walkable but there is also an excellent bus system. Parking is difficult and expensive at £2.20ph. M-F. so cars not recommended. …

Getting around

It is a 20 minutes walk to the centre of Edinburgh and 5 minutes walk to South Clerk Street where all buses have stops.
