Der Wohnraum

Location location location! This is a charming historic flat built in 1770 (we still have the original title deed!), but it's main feature is how close you are to everything! Just a 5 minute walk to either the Princes Street shops or the Calton Hill views.
The flat sleeps 7 across 4 rooms (2 x double beds, 1 room with 2 single beds & sofa, box room with bed). There is just one bathroom so you need to manage a bit!

Here's what a recent (Oct 2015) guest had to say:
“This is the best place I've ever stayed in on AirBnB. The flat was wonderfully cosy and comfortable, with some great extra features - loved the hidden door! Uwe was always easy to contact regarding check-in and check-out. We were all delighted by the flat and hope we get the opportunity to stay here again soon.”

Zugang für Gäste

There is free WiFi (and we provide a cable for wired ethernet). You have a complete kitchen with all the usual utensils and kitchenware. There is a lovely small private garden in the front. Washing machine/dryer, dishwasher, TV digital box and DVD player.

Interaktion mit Gästen

You will be met by our agent at the flat at a mutually agreed time for key handover and briefing. He will be available on phone for any issues. There is no cleaning service during your stay unless you request and pay agent.

This flat is still used periodically by the owners, so please respect it as a home. There are many period or just unusual features, please treat with the care a 250 year old flat deserves! Especially don't: disturb the neighbours (particularly downstairs, as the floors are pretty sound-conductive!), litter, or smoke indoors. If you break or damage anything, please inform the agent - unless substantial we rarely charge for small breakages such as glasses, but we need to know in order to restock for the next guest.

Perfect location for discovering Edinburgh by foot. No need to have a car available as you can reach all areas with a walk. Even going down to Leith will take you just about an hour and is worth to do! In case you cannot do the way back by foot again just rely on public transport as bus station is close by. Appartement itself was ok for us (group of five) - limitation is given by only one bath room and a shower you need to spent some time on before you get your prefered water temperature. This should be overworked! Check-In/-Out via agent Uwe worked OK, he did his job. Cleanliness could be enhanced - but having carpeted floor is a disadvantage for such a shared location. Each visitor will leave his signs... Right opposite there is a hotel "Parliament House Hotel" with an party room. Sleeping in the room to the streetside in the first night was not that easy as their was loud music and talking until late night (after midnight). Fun fact if you see house rules of "being quite, not disturbing neighbours". Unfortunately when we arrived on same day the painted the staircase. Smell was not gone on day of depature (two days later) and you had to take care to not touch the wall. Otherwise your clothes could get dirty with enamel (hard to wash out). Not that easy on this tight circular stair. After several days in smaller B&Bs throughout Schottland we expected a little more service, e.g. doing taxi booking for us. But overall the experience was OK.

Antwort von Gordon:
Hi - thanks for the feedback. I am afraid you were a bit unlucky in two respects. Never in 10 years apart from obvious times like Xmas eve, have I experienced noise from the Parliament House Hotel. (and I stay in the flat frequently apart from living there in the past) Very strange. I will speak to the management. And the stairwell was a job that was last done 30+ years ago; and negotiating this with all the neighbours was -- as you might imagine -- a bit of a chore; so when a window of opportunity opened, we jumped on it. I was there myself the day before you arrived and was assured that they would be done before you got in; sorry I didn't ask them if anything they could do about smell. We will address the carpet as you suggest. Thanks again for the input. -gordon

Gordon's house is ideally located for pretty much everything in Edinburgh, you couldn't want for a better location. The house is quirky but in a great way. The agent, Uwe, was very helpful and contacted us prior to our arrival to check there were no problems. We would definitely stay here again on any subsequent trips to Edinburgh.

This place was exactly what it advertised as and more! We were warmly and timely greeted at the door for the handover, and everything was very clean and tidy. It's great in terms of location and it's just a 5-10 minute walk from Waverley train station. It's a quirky flat (I really liked the kitchen in particular) and perfect for a nice stay in Edinburgh. I heartily recommend staying here and would definitely book again for another trip to this lovely city.
