About this listing

City centre, traditional Georgian Apartment,in the heart of one of the most vibrant, creative and central parts of Edinburgh. Your very sunny room enjoys fantastic views to Edinburgh's famous Calton Hill, where you also get front view seats of their famous firework displays! Walking distance to everywhere with fantastic public transport right on the doorstep including, Waverley Train Station and the Airport Tram stop.

The space

Spacious Georgian Apartment with many original period features including a striking original cast iron stove in the kitchen. Immediately across the road is Calton Hill, a key Edinburgh landmark, where you can walk up and enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view over the entire city and incredible firework displays. The Apartment is on a top floor walk up so there are stairs, however, the view makes up for it. Your lovely sunny and warm room, with a very, very comfortable queen size bed, is a nice quiet haven to relax in after all your Edinburgh adventures.

Nicola made my stay very comfortable! The room was clean and spacious and she included extras like a bathrobe and slippers. She put fresh fruit out in the mornings and left notes for anything I needed to know. I would definitely recommend her place :)

The location was ideal for us. It was within walking distance of the train station and all of historic Edinburg. Nicola was a warm and gracious host and her flat was very comfortable, especially the bed. We'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Nicola is such a great host, and the room is amazing. you can see the hill and the city thru the window, and the entire flat is designed so lovely and clean, modern. Nicola is kind, caring and always available to help you. it was great to walk up Calton hill early in the morning as the flat is only a minute away from there. if you plan to visit Edinburgh, i assure you this could be a perfect accomodation.

Nicola User ProfileNicola is a superhost.

I am a professional creative and I am passionate about music, art, travel and interesting conversation, good wine and a good sense of humour! I am originally from Edinburgh but lived in London and New York for years and I have travelled fairly extensively throughout the world, although I have still to do South America. I know how important it is when you are travelling to know you are staying in a clean, quiet, safe place, where you can relax and feel at home for however long you are there. I hope that is how my guests will feel.
