Romantic apartment in the heart of the Old Town of Edinburgh, very much the perfect base from which to explore the city

Der Wohnraum

Romantic and stylish apartment, It's the perfect base from which to explore Edinburgh from. I've already had some great people come and stay, so I welcome you to my home.


Edinburgh castle is a short walk away from the apartment, and the National Gallery, St Giles Cathedral, National Museum of Scotland are all close by.

My apartment is on the fourth floor of an 18th Century tenement with views on to the historic Royal Mile. 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 panelled walls and parquet flooring, mixed with family portraits, antiques and works of art, but also all the modern comforts of a home.

It is on the fourth floor and is reached by a spiral staircase (76 steps in all!) For our American cousins that's a walkup :-)
There is no elevator.
The apartment is South facing and full of light by day.

The hall has a cupboard to hang clothes/store shoes etc. There is also an ironing board/iron and a hair dryer kept here as well.

The bathroom has a bath and a shower, there is always hot water and plenty of towels for you to have.

Then through the main door off the hall, is the open plan living space. Five full height original Georgian sash windows face you as you walk into the space. Floor to ceiling book cases and a large period fireplace with French empire over-mantle mirror.

I don't own a TV.

But there is free wifi throughout the apartment, also a big collection of fiction/history/cookery/poetry/art/design books to while away the time with and I 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, washing machine, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, oven, kettle, induction hob etc. However I don't own a microwave.

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. I also have an honesty bar if you want to finish off with a drink or two after a long day of walking around town.

By the windows is the generous dining space with oak dinning table and six chairs.

The bed is a unique 'bedbox chamber' made from architectural salvaged fitted Scottish 18th/19th century carved oak. A floor to ceiling hidden panelled door lets you into this cosy space with reading lights on the headboard and it is fitted out with a British king size mattress - width 150cm and length 200cm, white cotton sheets, pillows and duvet. Mary Queen of Scots would feel quite at home sleeping in it!

The living room area of the apartment is tucked at the West side of the room and has two good size sofas, reading lamps and is perfect to socialize and also have quiet time with a good book.

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 whole apartment is for you and is not shared with anyone else.

Interaktion mit Gästen

I should be able to meet you in person to let you in, show you the apartment and answer any questions. Sometimes, due to your arrival time and what I'm up to, I wont be able to meet you personally and so will arrange to leave keys at the building to collect. You can contact me by phone or on airbnb at anytime during your stay.

Check-in is usually any time after 1pm and check-out times are 11am. However I'm flexible and I will try and accommodate your schedule whenever possible. So with that in mind it's really helpful to know your travel plans so please let me know what time you intend to arrive and depart and by what method of transport when you book.

Please make sure you have read the full description of my home, there is no lift and it's on the fourth floor, I don't own a TV. The bed is in a floor to ceiling box, with a door. Please keep music noise levels down after 10:30pm to respect the neighnbours, the building has some long term residents and other holiday guests.

It's my home so please respect the flat as if it were your own. This is not a "party flat" I trust the only people there are the guests booking.

Things break and get damaged its a fact of life, I'm understanding to these things, so please tell me before you leave or straight after so we can sort it out before it goes straight to the 'deposit' stage.

Its a small flat and there are lots of pubs and clubs around, of which I can tell you which are the better ones! so please no Parties or "Back to my house!" as noise travels in the building.

There is no smoking in the flat - and the fireplace chimmey has not been swept, so please dont attempt to light a fire in case the chimmey breast catchers fire or the soot fall's down and floods the living space.

Remeber to blow the candles out if you use them before you head out or go to bed. This is the most common cause of house fires in Edinburgh.

Sehr schöne, indviduelle Wohnung, super gelegen. Man kann sowohl Old Town als auch New Town wunderbar zu Fuß entdecken. Calim hat prima Tipps für Restaurants und ist in der Kommunikation sehr schnell und immer gut zu erreichen. Wir haben es sehr genossen!

Sehr schönes und stilvoll eingerichtetes Apartment, gute, sehr zentrale Lage in Edinburgh. Herzliches Willkommen gegen Mitternacht, trotz unserer Verspätung. Und Calim ist ein wundervoller Gastgeber, der Kühlschrank gefüllt. Und die Empfehlungen für Restaurants und Pubs waren absolut super. Danke Calim.

Es fällt sehr schwer, den vielen exzellenten Bewertungen, die hier schon geschrieben wurden, noch irgendetwas hinzuzufügen. Es bleibt uns also nur, zu wiederholen, was schon gesagt wurde: eine absolut wunderbare Wohnung, mit sehr viel Liebe, Geschmack und Verstand eingerichtet. Alles ist makellos sauber, für jeden Handgriff ist der passende Gegenstand vorhanden, nichts fehlt. Der einzige Nachteil: die Wohnung ist so charmant und man fühlt sich so wohl, dass es schwer fällt, sie jeden morgen zu verlassen. Dafür kommt man abends um so lieber nach Hause! Calim, Du hast einen wirklich besonderen Ort geschaffen, wir hoffen sehr, wiederzukommen. Vielen Dank!

Die mitten im Herzen Edinburghs gelegene, perfekt ausgestattete Wohnung war für uns die ideale Basis für unseren einwöchigen Aufenthalt. Die Wohnung ist mit viel Liebe zum Detail ausgestattet und sieht genau so aus, wie auf den Bildern dargestellt. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die vielen Tips und Hinweise z.B. zum Thema Einkaufen und Essen, die Calim für seine Gäste bereithält.

Das Apartment im vierten Stock über der Royal Mile ist etwas sehr besonderes. Es war eine totale Überraschung und ich hätte mir keinen besseren Ort denken können mitten in Edinburgh. Calim hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und uns sein sehr individuell eingerichtetes Apartment gezeigt. Alles sehr easy! Es hat genau unseren Geschmack getroffen, bis hin zur Musik. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und konnten am großen Tisch auch Freunde zum Frühstück einladen. Leute die etwas klaustrophobisch sind sollten Abstand nehmen, denn das Bett ist in einem extra angefertigten, lediglich bettgroßen Raum. Wir fanden es toll! Wir würden immer wieder da sein wollen.

Amazing apartment, we visited during the fringe festival and it's a wonderful place to base yourself. Super clean and has everything you need. Calim is a wonderful host and very helpful. Hope to return next year.

All of our Airbnb experiences so far have been excellent but Calim's place is really in a league of its own. He should be giving lessons to other Airbnb hosts! For a start, the location is absolutely stunning. You really are right in the heart of things. So much so that you can just pop back to the flat for lunch or just to pick up an umbrella whilst on a day sightseeing or seeing Fringe shows. We were there in August when you can actually see from the windows the massed bands of the tattoo marching out of the castle at the end of the show! It feels like a real privilege to also see the Lawnmarket first thing in the morning, empty before the tourists arrive. The flat is beautifully decorated by someone who clearly knows what they are doing in interior design terms and is filled with interesting books. There is great music to listen to, excellent kitchen equipment and toiletries and the bed is really comfy. Calim also supplies breakfast essentials, and things like olive oil that you wouldn't want to buy a bottle of for a short stay, which again are all of a very high quality. Loose leaf tea and a teapot are all too rare in self-catering accommodation! The honesty bar is the icing on the cake. So nice to be able to sip a wee dram whilst people-watching out of the window at night. Calim welcomed us on arrival and was really friendly and helpful throughout our stay. There is the little matter of the four flights of spiral stair you have to climb to get up there but the flat is so perfect that you'll find yourself bounding effortlessly up them!!

I'm a well travelled, inquisitive and creative guy. I'm using this site primarily to stay in cities around the world, were family and friends live who lack the space to put me up for a short visit, but also to explore places on my list... Rome, New York your next!

I'm respectful and honest in dealing with people and their spaces.

I'm into design, photograpy, old films and modern dance.

anyway ask me more

cheers Calim
