Description

Le logement

Immaculately presented and spacious flat located in traditional tenement block in the much sought after Old Town area near the Royal Mile. The property is situated close to a wide selection of excellent local amenities. The flat is cosy and welcoming offering you a "home from home" in an awesome central location within the Old Town. Just 5 minutes from the Royal Mile, the flat is ideally placed to explore Edinburgh's many sights on foot - it takes just 10 minutes to walk to the Scottish Parliament, the Palace of Holyrood House (the Queen's official residence in Scotland) or Castlehill leading to the Castle. There is a variety of museums, galleries and many other attractions within a 5-10 minute walk from the flat.

The flat itself has been maintained to a high standard internally. Accommodation comprises hall, lounge with original fire place, modern fitted kitchen/diningroom with patio doors to a private south-facing garden, two double bedrooms and modern bathroom with shower over the extra-wide bath. The property benefits from both gas central heating and double glazing, with the rooms at the front of the flat triple glazed. To the rear there is a private garden and access to the communal garden and drying area.

For green spaces Holyrood Park can be accessed a few minutes away - Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags offer a unique feature in an urban area and the views of the city and beyond are well worth the climb; the Meadows is a popular park just 10 minutes away with views of Arthur's Seat; Carlton Hill is the beautiful location of the famous monuments that give Edinburgh its "Athens of the North" title, and is a 15 minute walk from the flat.

As Edinburgh is a compact city staying so centrally means that nowhere is further than about 30-40 minutes on foot; however there is a fantastic bus network with bus stops just round the corner giving easy access to the whole city.

The flat is located within the popular southside of the city with lots of wonderful cafes, friendly pubs and excellent restaurants catering for all budgets. There is also a good selection of shops, both supermarkets and local specialist shops within a few minutes from the flat.

Please note that most of the photos were taken when I still lived in the flat and the listing was for a private room within a home; however, I have since moved out along with my books and personal belongings.

F.A.Q.s

How do I get there?
- If you are coming from the airport I recommend taking the 100 Airport Express bus and get off at the last stop on Waverley Bridge. This is also where Waverley Station is if you are coming by train. The flat is just a 10 minute walk away or a quick bus or taxi journey. The bus station at St Andrew's Square is just a few minutes beyond Waverley Station.

Is there parking?
- You can park for free on the street from 6.30pm till 8.30am every day and all day on Sunday; however, from 8.30am till 6.30pm Monday - Saturday parking must be paid for at a meter or nearby car park. Alternatively it is possible to park your car outside the central restricted area for free.

Are towels and bedlinen provided?
- Yes.

When can I check-in?
- Please contact me to advise me of your expected arrival time. If I'm not working I can be flexible, but would need to know the time to expect you. If I'm working I will advise you what time I can be there. (I work 4 days per week usually till 18:00).

Accès des voyageurs

Entire flat - two double bedrooms, living room, kitchen with dining area and patio doors to private garden, hall and bathroom. Make yourselves at home. There is free WiFi.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I will meet you when you check-in and can make recommendations of places to eat, drink and visit as required. I want you to feel comfortable and respect your privacy.

Le quartier

I have lived here for 20 years and there are so many things I love about the neighbourhood. I love that while living in such a central location the street itself is so quiet. The neighbourhood is very friendly and safe - most of the neighbours have lived here a long time and the shopkeepers also remain the same, so there are lots of familiar faces. It is a vibrant and diverse area with many different eateries catering for a variety of tastes. During August we are in the heart of the Fringe Festival, the world's biggest arts festival!

Transports

Fantastic bus network with bus stops round the corner from the flat just a few minutes away.

Waverley Station (train station) on Waverley Bridge (where airport bus arrives and leaves from) is just 10 minutes away on foot. Alternatively it's a short taxi journey or bus journey from Princes Street up the Bridges. From the bus station on St Andrew's Square it's a 15 minute walk, or short taxi ride. Alternatively walk to Princes Street for a bus up the Bridges.


Règlement intérieur

The street is residential and the flat is in a tenement building with my neighbours' flats on a shared stairwell so please be respectful of neighbours and keep noise down. No smoking permitted inside the flat.
Thank you!

Hello, Nous avons passé 5 journées à Edimbourg et avons choisi notre nid chez Nicola.Très sympathique et acceptés. Avons pu échanger nos points de vue et discuter de la vie, croiser ses chats tous les matins au petit-déjeuner. Encore merci à toi Nicola.... Aurelia et Patrick

Il est bien difficile de laisser un commentaire négatif après tant de commentaires positifs. Et pourtant... Nous sommes arrivés lundi soir et nous devions rester trois nuits jusqu'à jeudi matin. Malheureusement, nous avons décidé de quitter les lieux 24h avant la date prévue car nous ne pouvions plus supporter l'ambiance de la maison. Je m'explique : L'accueil du lundi soir fut très chaleureux, Nicola nous a montré notre chambre, la salle de bain et la cuisine, elle nous a présenté ses deux adorables chats et nous a montré comment fonctionnait la cuisinière et où étaient les ustensiles. Nous avons cuisiné notre repas : des pâtes et des légumes que nous avions achetés au Tesco le plus proche. Le lendemain soir, nous sommes rentrés vers 6h et je me suis immédiatement mise en cuisine pour que notre repas soit prêt assez tôt pour ne pas déranger Nicola à son retour. Malheureusement, elle est rentrée vers 18h30 et s'est mise à hurler que son appartement "puait la cuisine" : je cuisinais du riz et des légumes (carottes et champignons) qui sont en effet réputés pour être très odorants... Je n'avais pas activé la hotte, c'est vrai, car pour ce genre de préparation light je n'en ai pas l'habitude, mais l'appartement de Nicola est situé au sous-sol, le jardin est fermé à clé et très peu de fenêtres sont accessibles... Donc, Nicola nous a littéralement hurlé dessus en disant que ce n'était pas l'endroit approprié pour faire beaucoup de cuisine (l'expression "heavy cooking" pour du riz et des carottes étant un peu forte à mon goût) et elle est partie très vite pour s'acheter quelque chose à manger dehors car je prenais toute la cuisine. Imaginez mon embarras... J'étais complètement sous le choc, j'avais l'impression d'être la personne la plus impolie de la Terre et je n'avais même pas fait exprès exprès. Je n'ai même pas eu le temps de m'excuser ou de m'expliquer, ni de lui proposer de partager notre dîner, ce que j'avais pensé faire à l'origine. Bref, nous sommes sortis faire un tour pour respirer un peu et oublier qu'on s'était fait hurler dessus et en rentrant, Nicola était là avec son copain et... j'ai oublié de fermer la porte à clé! Malheur ! Chez Nicola les portes ferment mal un peu partout car c'est un vieil immeuble et il faut tout fermer avec précaution. J'ai oublié et le lendemain, une lettre recto-verso m'attendait sur la table du petit déjeuner pour me dire que c'était "très grave". Je le conçois et je m'en suis excusée. Une heure plus tard, le chat vomit dans notre chambre. J'ai envoyé un texto à Nicola qui m'a dit que si je fermais correctement la porte de notre chambre, ça n'arriverait pas. Ce fut la goutte d'eau qui a fait déborder le vase. Quoi que nous fassions, nous avions toujours tord. Nous avons fait nos affaires et nous sommes partis. Je pense que la chambre de Nicola est bien pour une nuit mais pas plus.

Nicole's home was really central, clean and quiet. It was a very welcome escape from the Edinburgh Fringe, and yet was just around the corner for the action. The garden was great in the sunny spells and the shower was brilliant. We also arrived to flowers and the fridge was well stocked. Would definitely recommend.

Great place to stay. Nicola is very welcoming and a nice person. The location is perfect, 5-10 minute walk to almost everything in Edinburgh. The room is fine, the bed is absolutely fantastic. There is one thing, there are no thick curtains to hide the sun in the room in the morning. It was no problem for me since I always sleep with a sleeping mask but maybe good to know for other people.

I can't emphasize enough how amazingly perfect my experience was made in Edinburgh by staying with Nicola in her lovely and charming home. It started with her checking with me pre-arrival to ask my flight number so that she could chart my travel progress. That immediately put me at ease about coming to a city I'd never visited. When I did arrive, she greeted me with a big smile and her unwaveringly gracious manner. There were cut flowers in every room and a well-stocked kitchen that she urged me to take advantage of. The listing on Airbnb is accurate, and then some. The bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom, the living room--all are enormously comfy and inviting. The location is top-notch: a five-minute walk to the center of everything. Nicola goes out of her way to make you comfortable, and to ensure that your stay in Edinburgh is worry-free. She will always have a place in my heart.

My stay with Nicola was wonderful! She is a warm, friendly and intelligent person who made me feel very welcome in her home. Nicola's flat is charming and full of character, much like Edinburgh itself. The location was fantastic for exploring the city by foot, and the room was comfortable and very quiet. This was my first experience with Airbnb, and I must say that staying with Nicola was like staying with a friend. She went above and beyond her hosting duties by including me in one of her social activities and introducing me to her friends. I highly recommend this accommodation - from the lovely secret garden out back, to the ideal location and friendly cats - to anyone looking for a home away from home in Edinburgh.
