An attic room with a comfy futon bed and sea view. Our house is in a lovely residential area right next to Holyrood Park / Arthur's Seat and close to Portobello Beach. 10 mins by bus to city centre. Bathroom shared with hosts. Breakfast not included.

The space

*PLEASE NOTE* that we are not located in the centre of Edinburgh (10 minutes by bus) and that our area is largely residential. However, the bedroom is *very quiet* and we are right next door to lots of great attractions, particularly for people who like the outdoors: Holyrood Park/Arthur's Seat, Duddingston Loch, Portobello Beach. If you like walking, you can access the city centre in 30 minutes on foot.

We are a laid-back household with lots of space and a little garden.

We don't provide breakfast. Guests can use the kitchen microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge.

Guest access

Guests are free to use another spare room to store luggage. Guests are also welcome to use the kettle, fridge and microwave in the kitchen.

Access to the garden for sunny days!

Alex was really helpful - providing us with information before we arrived, and also about places to eat/sights once we arrived. The space is lovely - nice and clean! Would recommend for anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh.

We loved the stay in the cosy attic room, especially the sun rise and the sea view from the skylight. Its perfectly located to explore the city and Holyrood Hill. We would definitely come back.

We stay at Alex & Joel's place for three nights. The room was just perfect: comfortable, warm and big. Alex and Joel also provided us with ton of Scotland guides, suggestions about what to do, eat, and see in Edinburgh, maps of where is the house located and how to get to the nearest attractions, the city center and the supermarket. We were surprised by how helpful they were, regardless of not seeing them much because they were busy during the day. The location of the room it's awesome! Right next to Holyrood Parl and Arthur's seat, a couple of minutes away from Holyrood Palace and about 10 minutes by bus or 25 minutes walking to the city center and all of the other attractions.

Alex and Joel are wonderful hosts. Check-in was easy. The room is just as described and very quiet which was nice as I was in Edinburgh for work. It is also easily accessible by bus if you are coming to see the city. Definitely recommend.

Alex and Joel were very kind and accommodating, helping us with directions and letting us drop our bags off early. The room is comfy and cozy, with the addition a handy list of their favorite sites and spots in the city! The house is nice and clean, and the neighborhood is quiet and close to public transport. A great stay, thanks very much!

We live in a lovely 1930s house in a quiet and safe residential area near Arthur's Seat.

We've been in Edinburgh for 9 years and have lots of local knowledge, which we'd be more than happy to share with you!

In any free time we love hillwalking, running, cycling, travelling and eating out.
