you may feel quiet and peace from this historical building with 200 years age, which locat just at the edge of carlton hill. it take just 15 mins to get to the top of hill for viewing sun-raise and set. and also be with walking distance to other attractions in edinburgh. the hostess offer delicate decoration and very comfortable bed, as well as simple breakfast for free. very enjoyed the time here.

Bedroom in a stunning apartment

Stunning, historic building, beautifully furnished. Great location, relatively close to the Rotal Mile. High quality linens. The host provided a continental breakfast both days we stayed, which was not expected but very much appreciated. She was initially all business, but warmed up considerably, even offering to drive us to get our rental car. Very nice, modern bathroom, with a very large tub with a shower attachment, but you couldn't really shower.
The host rents one bedroom in her apartment to guests, sharing the lounge and offering tea and breakfast in her kitchen. However, we felt like we were staying in someone's personal space; there were even her shoes outside the bedroom door in the short hallway. The bathroom was outside the smallish bedroom, but the hallway also accessed the always had to be dressed or use the robe provided as she was using the kitchen also. The only tv was in the (gorgeous) lounge, but we felt uncomfortable using it if she was there. We understood her reasons, but didn't appreciate that we were not permitted to have tea in our bedroom. Overall, a beautiful room with a great location, but we felt a little bit uncomfortable.

Thank goodness Edinburgh is a beautiful place.

The building and the street it was in.
The service. The checkin time got changed several times. Didn't feel comfortable around the owner. Felt like she looked down at anyone who didn't have money. She even cleaned her teeth in the kitchen sink. The bedroom was small and the seperate bathroom was filthy with hairs in the toilet. Breakfast service was poor.
