Places to stay in Edinburgh
A bright 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the Old College's Dome. The very central and unique location means most sights are within walking distance. A stone's throw away from the Festival Theatre, National Museum. The Castle, Royal Mile and Grassmarket are nearby. Great coffee place below and a friendly local bar. 4th floor. No lift. If you have heavy luggage be aware of this. I'm usually always around to meet people and let them in myself.
Built in the 1790s the tall classical tenements of the street were completed when the South Bridge was built as a link between the Old Town and the developing southern part of the city. Robbie Burns would have been striding the streets at the time and William McGonagall, the poet, lived and died on the street. The apartment is on the 4th floor. An old turnpike stair leads the way up. The Lounge overlooks the Dome of the Old College and if you lean out the window you can see down the street to the Firth of Forth in the distance. A bright comfortable room with a sofa bed that can accommodate 2 further guests. A fold out table can be used for dining and there is a TV with built in freeview/DVD player. Free wifi. The Bedroom is set to the rear of the building and is nice and peaceful with a comfortable double bed. Space to hang clothes, chest of drawers and a hair dryer is supplied. An ironing board and iron can be found in a hall cupboard. The Kitchen has all you might need if you choose to eat in. Cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster and dishwasher. Essentials like oil, salt, pepper, coffee and tea are provided. Bathroom. A lovely space with bath and electric shower over and large mirror. Towels, shower gel, shampoo and toilet paper are provided.
The Royal Mile, Grassmarket, Castle and much more are a pleasant stroll away with Princes Street being a 10 minute walk. Most of the Edinburgh Festival venues are nearby - Festival Theatre, Pleasance, George Square, Udderbelly etc. The area is surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, bars and shops to enjoy. There is also a choice of several supermarkets nearby. Live music can be found down the street in The Captain's Bar - a small traditional bar with live Scottish folk music most nights. Live Jazz is on until late round the corner in the Jazz Bar on Chambers Street. Just up the road on Nicolson Street you can find many charity/thrift shops where you can pick up a bargain or two!
  • An incredibly stay, in an incredible city! We loved this space, and it was a perfect location. Thank you for everything!

  • This is the second time I have stayed in one of Charlotte’s places in Edinburgh. I have now stayed in both locations. This one I loved for the convenience of location - so close to everything. Cute coffee shop right next door, great size apartment, perfect kitchen and bathroom. Charlotte always leaves a lovely spread for breakfast and the place is always clean. Charlotte always responds quickly with tips or to answer a question. I love her hospitality. Thank you Charlotte 😊🙏

  • Brilliant location in the old town and a lovely space. Excellent host too.

    Craig2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! The guide to Edinburgh was really useful and Charlotte was really lovely (even though our flight was delayed so we arrived much later than planned) flat was comfy and everything we needed

    Lorna2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really loved Charlotte place. The flat was lovely, beautiful high windows with lots of light. The living room was spacious and had a great view over the old college. We sat and had breakfast with a great view every morning. Charlotte was really welcoming and responsive to any queries we had. She met us on arrival and made sure we were settled in. I would highly recommend this as somewhere to stay, it is very central and only a 15 min pleasant walk from Waverley station along Cockburn Street. It definitely helps you get your steps in! The flat is very close to lots of lovely cafes, pubs and restaurants so you’re never stuck for somewhere to eat or somewhere to have a drink. Great stay and great flat. Thanks Charlotte!

    Kerry2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment, super clean and everything we needed for our short break.

    Jodie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte’s apartment was everything we could have wanted in a weekend visit to Edinburgh. The flat was incredibly clean and cosy and beautifully decorated. Charlotte was there to greet us and gave us a a great introduction to the city with some useful local tips. We had everything we needed and look forward to another visit.

    Lewis2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Charlotte’s place during our road trip to Scotland. Charlotte is very hospitable and gave us a lot of tips for our stay in Edinburgh. Highly recommended!

  • Very nice apartment. Warm, bright, with the necessary equipment. Very comfortable for two people and the fantastic location; near everything. I would stay here again.

    Celeste2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, easy to find, very clean. It’s the perfect place to have as your base if exploring Edinburgh - everything is walkable and easy!

    Becca2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great value. GREAT location. Right next to the royal mile. Alan is great at communicating. Check in was super easy. Great for a couple people for a few days.

    Caroline2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Edinburgh - Alan’s communication was great and really helpful

    Beth2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend this apartment for a get away in Edinburgh. Very close to everything! All the details given to you before check in was very informative and accurate. Easy to find and the place was very clean. I came early and waited outside, Alan's wife was kind enough to let me in early whilst she finished the cleaning! Alan messaged to check if everything was ok and I knew if I needed anything that he would respond quickly. Loved my stay here and will definitely return to this apartment if I am to return to Edinburgh!

    Hannah2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Alan's place is perfect if you want the convenience of being right in the city's heart. Alan was a great host and his communication and directions were always clear and prompt. The place is really nice and highly recommended for your stay in Edinburgh.

    Karla2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place. Alan sent a detailed email of how to find the place. Excellent and quiet location.

    Gaze out across the rooftops from this bright upstairs flat. The space features a unique mix of antique and modern furnishings, an open-plan living area, a large skylight, a cosy minimalist kitchen, and pops of colour throughout.
    My apartment is on the top floor of an 18th Century tenement. With all mod cons and a unique location, this is the perfect apartment to have as a base while you explore Edinburgh. The apartment retains the unique character of the Old Town with oak parquet flooring, wooden window shutters in the bedroom and a mix of contemporary and antique furniture throughout. It is on the fifth floor and is reached by a spiral turnpike staircase (102 steps in all!) For our American cousins that's a walkup :-) There is NO LIFT/ELEVATOR so if you have very large/heavy luggage or struggle with stairs this isn't the place for you to stay and I'd advise booking a ground floor apartment. Edinburgh in general, never caught up with installing lifts in its buildings. The apartment is at the end of the row and South facing, so gets lots of light throughout the day. The apartment has cupboard space for your luggage and places to hang clothes/store shoes etc. There is also an ironing board/iron. The bathroom has a shower, shampoo/conditioner/shower gel/toothpaste. There is always plenty of towels for you to have. The hairdryer is kept in the cupboard under the sink. I don't own a TV.... but there is free wifi throughout the apartment. I've a big collection of fiction/history/cookery/poetry/art/photography books to while away the time with. I also have a music/radio player with an eclectic choice of C.Ds. Plus cards and board games. A large kitchen space with character and all the modern cons - toaster, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, oven, kettle, induction hob etc. There is no microwave. There is a washing machine and there is washing liquid capsules for it under the sink, just put one of these inside the washing machine drum and close the door and turn to what ever setting you want. I do not have a dryer (it's not that typical here in Scotland/Europe) what I do have is a clothes horse which you can hang your clothes on. It's kept folded up in the hall cupboard. I hate staying in apartments on holiday where there aren't even any basics to cook with like salt and olive oil, so the kitchen is stocked with all the usual larder fare to help yourself to if you're cooking in. Plus coffee and all sorts of teas. There is a dinning table and chairs. The bedroom is tucked off the hall and has reading lights and a comfortable British king size mattress width 150cm X length 200cm, with white cotton sheets, pillows and duvet. The living room area of the apartment is at the front with lots of light and a good view of the Old College dome. A good size sofa, armchairs, reading lights and is perfect to come back to after a day in town. I hope to hear from you. I'm more than happy to answer any questions or give advice about Edinburgh/restaurants/bars etc All the best Calim
    The National Museum of Scotland is merely yards away from the apartment, and The Royal Mile and Castle are just a few minutes walk away. Live Scottish folk music can be found at the local pub as well as one of the best city coffee shops Brew Lab on the street.
  • Beautiful apartment, well equipped and comfortable. Will definitely be coming back!

    Dale2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very homely, clean and comfortable. Location is extremely central. Calim was very helpful and friendly, a super host! Would highly recommend and I’m sure we will be back!

    Chris2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Calim’s apartment is very stylish, super cosy and the ideally located to explore the city. We loved spending time unwinding in the evenings and enjoying a leisurely breakfast in the mornings - thanks, Calim, for the delicious supplies! We’d love to stay again some time. Big thanks to Calim, and throughly recommended.

    Laura2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing space with an amazing host to match! Ideal for anyone visiting Edinburgh, located a stones throw from some of the cities best sights and eateries. Combine this with a host with an abundance of local knowledge and excellent communicative skills to boot and you come out with something really special.

    Ben2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Calim made everything, that your stay is as much comfortable as possible. He left us some accommodation for the first day, bred, butter, milk, shortbread, eggs! He has some really good tips for the city, where to eat or to go out for drinks! He respondet fast at every time! Thanks again!

    Florin2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Look no more. This is THE place.

    Heidi2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • It was a beautiful apartment in a very central location. The apartment was very clean and tidy, it had great decor and many thoughtful touches. I would happily return in the future.

    Frances2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A gem of an apartment, perfectly positioned to explore the beautiful Edinburgh. Calim couldn’t have been a more thoughtful and accommodating host for our stay, with the most amazing final touches. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place for anyone looking for a stylish, comfortable and cosy place to chill out after a long day exploring!

  • Great place, Gavin was very cooperative!

    Nicholas2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The reviews speak for themselves - the apartment, together with the hospitality, made for such a fantastic break away. The place is in a perfect location with plenty of lovely bars and restaurants at your fingertips (thanks for the recommendations Gavin!). The apartment was comfortable, spotless and had everything we needed. The fantastic WiFi connection was particularly handy for when I had to work. Check-in instructions were very clear and all responses in the run up to our stay were quick and friendly. Our stay really was faultless and we hope to be back!

    Kirsten2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location and great view of castle. Very clean. Would stay again if we return to Edinburgh

    Colleen2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Wee Thistle is conveniently located near the Grassmarket. There are many wonderful restaurants near the area. The house has all the basic amenities that we require and the bed is really comfortable. You can also see the Edinburgh castle right outside the house. There is also a second hand bookshop armchair books just opposite the place. It takes about 15min to reach Waverley station, but you will get to walk past Victoria St and Royal Mole among the way. Thanks for making our stay in Edinburgh a wonderful one!

    Bee Choo2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Well recommended, this place was in a perfect spot, clean and homely I will defo be returning. A+++++

    Chriss2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful two night stay at the Wee Thistle and only wish we could have had more time. It was the perfect location for exploring Edinburgh on foot.

    Erika and Aron2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication, excellent location near Grassmarket (tons of cute pubs) and near the castle. Everything was clean, the shampoo and conditioner were great, comfy bed and a crib and high chair for baby were awesome. Special touches like shortbread and a booklet with recommendations were great! We loved our stay. My only complaint was that it was noisy outside the bedroom window. We were awaken several times by people talking, singing, car alarms going off etc. Ear plugs or a noise machine would be great! Highly recommend though!

    Danielle2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, clean and quiet apartment right in the centre of Edinburgh. Seeing the castle every morning before visiting the city was fantastic!

    Noel2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, in an ideal location. Beautifully decorated with eclectic pieces, but not too personal that it feels like your invading someone else’s space. The beds were extremely comfortable, with fresh sheets. The vinyl player was a lovely touch, ideal to chill and read to, or dance and cook to. I would 100% recommend staying here!

    Kitty2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect apartment for a long (rainy) weekend, in an ideal location and with great decor/character. The tea bags, Netflix, board games and blankets were much appreciated after getting caught in a downpour! Sonia & Chris were super responsive and helpful with suggestions for the local area. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh!

    Louise2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sonia & Chris' place was super cosy and felt like a home away from home. They provided many essential amenities and checking in was super easy. Would recommend this place to stay. Extremely central and easy walking distance to everywhere. Their insider guide they provided had great dining and bar recommendations.

    Edinburgh, United Kingdom

    A former courthouse and jail has transformed into a CoDE Pod Hostel- The CoURT. The Victorian A-listed building is located in the heart of Edinburgh's old town and is surrounded by the cities most famous landmarks.
    Originally designed as the Edinburgh police chambers, the building contained both holding cells and courtroom facilities that have been transformed to add modern comfort while keeping the historic nature of the rooms intact. Note: this listing is for a single pod in a mixed-dormitory with 10 pods. Our sophisticated ‘pods’ (we’ve gone beyond traditional bunk beds here) and shower rooms are designed with maximum comfort and privacy in mind, whilst our kitchen and communal area are intelligently laid out to ensure those who stay here can relax and unwind, and, if they choose to do so, meet and mingle with interesting new people, as part of their hostel experience. Our dorms are mixed and shared, so you can share your experience with other travellers! *Towels are not included, but can be rented for £2.00 at reception (require a £10 deposit) *Breakfast is charged at £4 per breakfast
    Located right on the royal mile next to the main cathedral, can't get more central than this!

  • Conveniently located near everything you’d want to see in downtown Edinburg. Really loved the city. Checkin and out was very easy. Rory does warn that there are three flights of stairs to climb to reach the apartment. It’s a good workout. Our room was one of three guest rooms in the apartment. Had no problem with the other guests. No one seemed to be in anyone else’s way. Our room was comfy, had great sleeps in the bed. Kitchen was well stocked and clean. Bathroom was great. I loved the shower. Would stay there again.

  • Great location with everything you'd need for a short break. Apartment was clean and pleasantly decorated. Noise from road but that's to be expected for city centre.

    Sharm2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location, especially for those who want to walk to the main attractions (no car needed). Just a short walk from the train station too. The host is marvelous! The condo was much bigger than we expected (we had come from a tight one in London). Directions and details from the host were well done. We only had one small issue and he was very responsive in resolving it right away. Shower itself is quite tight though the bathroom and a whole is spacious. There's a monitor in the kitchen (not a TV so the speakers aren't very good) and you stream to it from your mobile device (worked with our Android device). The projection system in the living room was not able to be used because we do not travel with a laptop that we could plug in to it (course there's so much to do in Edinburgh this was not an issue). One of the two beds had a mattress that really needs to be replaced. Note that there are two flights of stairs, no lift, but we thought it was really cool to stay in an older building with character. Kitchen was well appointed, spacious, and pleasant. The place has large windows. Overall, the place was great. I would recommend it and would stay again if I were traveling there in the future. And, as other reviewers say, the host is terrific!

The place is quite small, but has a local charm, and everything necessary (except the hair dryer) was there. Perfect place where to stay, if you want to explore old town, and to go out at the night.

  • Having been my first time traveling and staying with a hostel I didn’t know what to expect. At. Christopher’s set the new precedent, though. Check in was simple, I went to my room and it was quaint with the best people and they had free tours as well. This hostel is also very organized and so aesthetically pleasing. If you’re coming to Edinburgh it only makes sense you would want to stay with the best. St. Christopher’s is the way to do it.

The ground floor has an open plan kitchen living and dining room area and a separate WC. The kitchen is a hand made bespoke kitchen by Mark Harney of Ireland Cabinet Makers and features a range oven and integrated washing machine and dishwasher. The lounge area is taken up with a huge L shaped Italian leather sofa which can seat up to 10 guests. There are two stunning Italian designer black floor lamps and a dramatic chrome arch over sofa floor lamp.

    This ground floor flat situated in a world heritage site in the heart of the old town. It is walking distance to all of Edinburgh's major attractions. Long stay car park nearby Lots of tourist attractions nearby, also Princes street gardens and Arthur's Seat for some greenery. Lots of bars and restaurants too! The Old Town is a very busy area so best for an active break rather than peace and quiet! Expect noise at night at the weekends- the apartment does have triple glazing on the windows but if you are a very light sleeper then I recommend ear plugs.

  • Apartment very well placed and very well equipped. A stone's throw from Royal Mile and in the heart of Old Town. Very responsive and attentive host. Please note: the apartment is on the sixth floor without a lift and may not be suitable for everyone.

    Mallory Et Thomas2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Perfectly located. Couldn’t ask for better for access to activities the kids wanted like the national museum. Nice finishing touches with blankets for snuggling on the couch, and selection of toiletries.

  • Everything you need to visit Edinburgh is right here!A beautiful apartment with everything on your doorstep. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough!

  • Nice flat well located but be prepared for 6 flights of stairs.

    Colin2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location and beautiful view out the main bedroom , get your daily exercises from walking up the stair, we were informed of this. Apartment was beautiful and so much room. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. The apartment was freezing cold, we contacted lisa and she turned the heat up to 22° as we couldn't control it in the room, this was okay however we were still cold and wore our ski jackets inside, would be better if we could control it. Thanks for an awesome stay, would definitely stay here again!

    Sarah2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second visit in Lisa’s place and it was all great. Excellent location and much better host!

    Sergio H2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • The location is excellent, just a few steps away from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. Even though there’re plenty of stairs (6 floors) to get into the accomodation, the place worth’s the effort. Lisa is as well an excellent host who is in total availability to help when needed, we did it via AirBnb’s chat. This will surely be our top option for next occasions!

    Spacious one bedroom apartment with loads of character, located in Edinburgh's Old Town just off the Royal Mile. Offers gorgeous views over the city and the iconic Calton Hill! Perfect for a city centre break or a business stay. Distance to attractions/places: Royal Mile: 10 second walk Princes Street: 6 mins walk George Street: 10 mins walk Edinburgh Castle: 15 mins walk This apartment is the perfect base for exploring everything Edinburgh has to offer!
    Experience the historic side Edinburgh and see some of Edinburgh's most iconic sites, just steps away from the apartment. Visit Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, and the Scottish Parliament Building within minutes from your accommodation.
  • Perfect location for enjoying the Festival and city in general. A very central location with all major points of interest/venues in easy walking distance; just over the road from Waverley, but with a bedroom that faces into a courtyard meaning noise isn't an issue. This place is huge as well, with a very warm character which matches that of Edinburgh. All amenities were fantastic, with a modern bathroom and well stocked kitchen. Having done Fringe before and staying on the periphery of the city the location alone increased how much we enjoyed this year's festival, but the genuine quality of this place made the mornings after a whole lot easier.

    Michael2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, great location. Really close to Royal Mile but without the noise. Lots of stairs as everyone said, but didn’t have a problem with that at all. The place was sparkling clean.

    James2018-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Loved my stay in Edinburgh, mostly due to this charming, centrally located apartment, with great views and a super comfy bed. The only downside to it is that it's on the fourth floor, with no elevator, which could be a bit of a pain if you have lots of luggage. However, once you overcome that, the place is totally worth it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a more authentic experience.

    Linda2018-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I spent three nights at BnBBuddy's apartment in Edinburgh. It is a nicely decorated apartment on the top floor of a building with 4 floors - so nice views out the windows. The bed was super comfortable with lovely pure white heavy cotton sheets. The shower worked great, water nice and hot and big soft white towels were provided. Windows opened throughout the place so there was lots of fresh air. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped if you want to stay in (although we didn't do that). It is very conveniently located right near the main train station and the Royal Mile and lots of restaurants and other amenities. We were pleasantly surprised at having all the space- bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. We signed up for a Mercat tour on the recommendation of the hosts (who gave us a 10% discount) and really enjoyed that. All in all, a really great stay in Edinburgh. Thank you to our airbnb hosts!

  • The location of the apartment was fantastic, it is close to everything. A supermarket is 25m away, many cafes and restaurants at your doorstep, visiting the old city and other attractions were within 2-3 mins walk from the location. The train station, if you want to do a day trip outside Edinburgh, was only about a 15 min walk for us (you can also use public transport easily to go there as well). The apartment itself was extremely clean, well maintained, useful brochures and ideas of what to see/visit/eat whilst in Edinburgh and Scotland. It had great amenities and no problems with our stay. The hosts were very easy to communicate with. If we go back to Edinburgh, we would definitely stay there again. *I should also mention that the hosts had left some traditional Scottish candies and drinks as a welcoming gift.

  • This was by far the best place that we stayed in during our 2 week vacation. The location was just a couple minutes walk to Old Town and there were plenty of restaurants and Pubs close by. The apartment was clean, stylish and a great place to come back to after 13 hour days of exploring Edinburgh. If we ever come back to Edinburgh we would not hesitate to book this place again. Well done.

It was definitely a beautiful flat in a great location! We were only a short walk to the royal mile, great restaurants, shopping, pubs and the Edinburgh Castle.

    Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

    This traditional Scottish city home is located just 5 minutes from Waverley train station and a two minute walk from York Place tram stop and Edinburgh Bus Station; both with direct airport links. Everything is in walking distance; you could not hope for a more central location - especially for the Edinburgh festival! This spacious double bedroom is perfect for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
    There is one king sized bed, a sofa, hanger space for clothing and fresh towels, shower gel and shampoo provided. Fast WiFi broadband is available in all areas of the flat. Other rooms in the flat include; fully equipped kitchen with breakfast table and bathroom with a shower which is all available for guests to use. Metered parking is available outside the flat along with bus, tram and train stops. Street parking is free on a Saturday and Sunday also. Within 10 minutes walk you have: Princes Street, Scotts Monument, Grass-market etc. Within 15 minutes walk you have: Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, Harry Potter’s birthplace, Carlton Hill etc. There are also lots of bars / restaurants very close by if you don't feel like venturing into town.
  • Highly recommended. The house is in a perfect position, minutes away from the station and most famous attractions. Check in and check out were very easy. The room is exactly as described, very spacious and clean. The apartment also has a bathroom and a kitchen fully equipped with everything you may need, so for example you can cook your own meals, making your holiday cheaper. The only thing I'd draw a little attention on is that you have to climb stairs that are a little narrow, so you may want to consider this in case you have big luggage or balance issues. Anyway I recommend staying here and I'd book the room again for sure.

    Sabrina2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such a comfortable space and such good value for money! I was only staying for one night so I didn't use the shower but it looked very luxurious 😎 The 3 flights of stairs up to the flat weren't a problem for me and my friend and the check in instructions are the most comprehensive I've ever seen - very simple and easy to follow. I will definitely be coming back here next time I come to Edinburgh if I can.

    A former courthouse and jail has transformed into a CoDE Pod Hostel- The CoURT. The Victorian A-listed building is located in the heart of Edinburgh's old town and is surrounded by the cities most famous landmarks.
    Originally designed as the Edinburgh police chambers, the building contained both holding cells and courtroom facilities that have been transformed to add modern comfort while keeping the historic nature of the rooms intact. Note: this listing is for a single pod in a mixed-dormitory with 8 pods. Our sophisticated ‘pods’ (we’ve gone beyond traditional bunk beds here) and shower rooms are designed with maximum comfort and privacy in mind, whilst our kitchen and communal area are intelligently laid out to ensure those who stay here can relax and unwind, and, if they choose to do so, meet and mingle with interesting new people, as part of their hostel experience. Our dorms are mixed and shared, so you can share your experience with other travellers! *Towels are not included, but can be rented for £2.00 at reception (require a £10 deposit) *Breakfast is charged at £4 per breakfast
  • Cozy and nice hostel

    Fedya2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • The hostel was really great and the pods are confortable and give a sense of privacy that one does not usually have when sharing a room with other 7 people. I travel with my parents and for them it was the first time experiencing something like that and they enjoyed it. The location was really great, close to the station and in the middle of the center of the city. The place was clean and the workers/volunteers were nice and helpful. Specially Eric from Spain, he helped us with what we needed and explained everything clearly. Also, the fact that he spoke Spanish was helpful for my father.

    Ruth2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    Axel2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

    Jerry2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • I was the person that said they would NEVER stay in a hostel. I always imagined a cheap dirty filthy place. Last minute I decide I wanted to go to Scotland and decided to try it since it was only a few days. I was so nervous. Happy to say I am SO happy this was my first experience with a hostel! The place was perfect. Really cool and on theme. There’s a kitchen u can cook ur own food and a fridge that comes with labels so u can label your food. In the bathroom, people leave toiletries in case anyone forgot to bring something. Same with the a section of the pantry u can take or leave whatever u like. They allowed me to store my luggage after I checked out which anyone staying has access to and I was so nervous but the concierge was so warm when she said she trusted everyone I decided to go for it. I had no lock and 2 of my bags were open to toe bags. Came back after midnight and everything was in perfect condition. They even kept my passport and iPad for me just in case. They also have drinks and snacks for sale. It’s truly in the perfect location. You can walk to everything and walk from the train station. The only thing I would say dont get the breakfast. It’s mostly bread/waffles and porridge. I think you should just walk and try diff places everything is so close by. I was also cold often, so I would pack warm clothes to sleep in. The room has a heater, not sure if it has a timer or if my bunk mates kept turning it off lol but seriously couldn’t recommend this place enough.

    Crystal2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Clean hostel with all necessary facilities. There's some level of privacy unlike traditional hostels. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

    Faith2019-12-14T00:00:00Z

    Ryan2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • It is an excellent homestay. You can enjoy its comfortable environment with low price. you have own space and store package safely. In the kitchen, you can use cutlery in there and eat food purchased by yourself. Also, you can purchase it's breakfast. When you go out and turn right, arrive at famous royal mile.

    High above Edinburgh Old Town. Uninterrupted views of Edinburgh Castle and Hogmanay Fireworks. Clear views to the sea and Arthurs sea. A very unique place to stay.
    A unique apartment in the heart of Edinburgh Old Town. Above the crowds with stunning views to historic Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish east coast and the magnificent Arthurs Seat and everything that Edinburgh has to offer the visitor all year round. A wonderful place to stay.This self catering apartment has everything you need whether you are staying for one night, a week or longer. It has the most stunning views of the Edinburgh skyline right in the centre of the city. Wonderfully light with a friendly atmosphere. Suitable for the writer, walker, artist, vacationing family or get away from it all couple and friends. The apartment consist of kitchen and separate bedroom with views to the sea and the magnificent Arthurs Seat and a larger dormer ceilinged room with direct unobstructed views of the Edinburgh Castle and its famous fireworks during the Festival and Hogmanay celebrations. There is a bathroom and shower, with as of July 2013 a new pump to provide a better full pressure shower! The apartment has a unique character and style, relaxing and social that makes you feel comfortable the minute you walk through the door. Decorated and furnished to a high standard with antiques and handmade furniture, very unique and handmade by the owners. The apartment includes a wood burning stove, wall mounted electric heaters and everything you should need to make your stay a memorable one. The pictures I hope speak for themselves. It's in the very centre of Edinburgh, 5 minutes from Princess Street, the Castle and all that is Edinburgh. Its 10 minutes by public transport to Leith and the Shore and a days trip to the beaches or hills that surround (URL HIDDEN) base yourself here for a week is a luxury, so much to do and see. That's perhaps why there is no television, no landline phone, no WiFi. There are books, music, games, paints, blankets and things to use to make good food and have a good time whilst staying at any time of the year. If you are the creative types its an ideal space. For everything else its on your doorstep or at least down eight flights of (URL HIDDEN) eight, 147 stone spiral steps with a wooden handrail to the top, steep at first but once you get going it gets easier. Honest. Due to the nature of the stairs its not suitable for those with severe mobility issues. It is however clean, well lit with space to rest should you need a break. We will generally help carry luggage up if we are available though it is best to travel light! This is the place for the adventurers, climbers, walkers and travellers. In the winter its wild and atmospheric, time for jumpers, blankets, good food and the wood-burning stove. This is not a "could be anywhere flat" If there is anything we can do to make your stay a perfect one, we will. We provide good food to start your breakfast and a well stocked larder of provisions for cooking. Often described as "beautiful", "unique" and "amazing views"
    The apartment is in the heart of the Old Town, fantastically atmospheric whatever the time of year and so close to the major landmarks of the City.

  • The perfect base for exploring Edinburgh. Great location, walking distance to ALL the action (I’m glad we chose this place, and not one closer to the Royal Mile - would have been very noisy!). Neat apartment with great views of the castle. The shortbread was delicious!

  • Gavin’s place is fab! Spotlessly clean, great location and the view of the castle is just amazing! We stayed 27th-29th April and were blessed with lovely blue skies the whole time! Gavin allowed us to leave our luggage early which was great. The apartment is really well located to see all of Edinburgh - and the bed is super comfy!! Great amenities too and little touches, has everything you need and more. Really recommend Orocco Pier restaurant in Queensferry, great views and food is just incredible! We also went Axe Throwing with Black Axe Throwing company - was a fab way to spend an hour before the evening started! Arthur’s Seat is worth the hike, spectacular views! Prince Bar is gorgeous too!

    The Wee Nook is a boutique bolthole close to Princes Street,Holyrood Park, National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle & The Royal Mile, the Grassmarket & Greyfriars Kirkyard, Waverley train station and public transport links, excellent restaurants & cafes. You’ll love my place because of the boutique design, the comfy bed, the well equipped kitchen, the historical area, it's central position in the Old Town of Edinburgh. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
    The Wee Nook is a haven set amongst the hustle and bustle of the Old Town.

  • Great location just south of the old town, and fantastic flat! Made our stay incredibly comfortable, can’t recommend it enough.

  • Stylist, modern apartment in the perfect location!

    Roger2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home very close to everything you need! It was lovely to come home to after a cold day exploring

    Abbe2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • A truly beautiful apartment in the centre of town. It was also really comfortable as well as stylish and had wonderful, thoughtful touches. I will definitely stay here again. Thank you!

    Katie2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Air bnb photos really don’t do the Wee Nook justice: It’s beautiful, comfortable and perfectly placed to access everything you need to in Edinburgh - and really not that wee! We had a really enjoyable stay and would strongly recommend. Just be aware; on street parking outside is very expensive.

    Jo2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • The wee nook is absolutely beautiful, spacious, stylish and situated in a great location. Can’t rate the place and the owners hospitality and attention to detail highly enough.

    Carl2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at Carly's place, which was very clean, well-equipped and centrally located to see everything we wanted in Edinburgh. We thought it even nicer than the photos. Carly's communication was speedy and clear, and both check-in and check-in couldn't have been easier, which contributed to a relaxing stay. We appreciated the thorough instruction binder, with local tips, and how close the local groceries were (Tesco Express 1/2 a block). We loved the small welcome package too! We'd highly recommend this apartment.
