A bright & cosy room, fairly central and perfect for exploring Edinburgh on foot. Lots of grocery shops and eclectic cafes nearby, as well as a Fringe Ticket collection point on our street. We can also lend you our Historic Scotland passes for free entry to Edinburgh Castle and a few other attractions :D
We're flexible with amending bookings - if you'd like to add extra days to your booking before or during your stay, that's fine. We can also discuss cash payment to make things easier.
Newington is a leafy, trendy area in the south of Edinburgh, very popular amongst students and young professionals for its cafés and bars. It is sandwiched between the Meadows park and Arthur's Seat so you're not stuck for ideas on what to do on a sunny day. It's also very close to the University of Edinburgh; a stereotypically old and beautiful Uni which is just nice to wander around.
Will I be sharing the flat?
Yes, you'll be sharing with Adam & Charlotte, a digital marketer from Scotland and Patissier from Switzerland, as well as our cat Meena. We're a friendly bunch who like to make guests feel at home. If you'd like any advice on cafés, bars, restaurants we're happy to help.
What is provided?
Bed linen, towels, shampoo, hair dryer.
Free coffee and tea.
Fast WiFi internet.
Passes for Edinburgh Castle, Linlithgow Palace, Craigmillar Castle etc.
Is your flat good for sightseeing?
The flat is the perfect base to explore Edinburgh from, it's very close to Arthur's Seat, the Meadows, Edinburgh University, the Castle and the historic Old Town. It's also a main bus route so if you'd like to go to the Botanic Gardens or Leith it's really easy to catch a bus!
Is there Parking?
1) You could park in paid parking near to our flat. The closest is called Easi-parks on Parkside Street (5 minutes walk from my flat).
2) You could also park outside the parking controlled area - it's about a 20 minutes walk away from our flat. This is free, for as long as you like!
What time is check-in?
Anytime, provided the room is ready! Depending on your arrival time, you may need to let yourself in though.
What time is check-out?
Ideally 1200 but we're flexible.
Can I leave my luggage after I check out?
Yes, no problem.
Any tips on saving money?
If you're travelling on a budget then you may find Itison and Groupon useful. These websites offer discounts on walking tours, activities and restaurants in Edinburgh.
We have 2 Historic Scotland Passes which we can lend you - for a male and a female. They get you free entry into Edinburgh Castle saving you around £17 each :)
What's the kitten like?
Meena is friendly ball of cuteness, she's comfortable around guests and likes attention.
Shared access to:
- Bath & Shower-room
- Living room with a dining table.
Please let us know when you expect to arrive in Edinburgh and if you need directions. If you're arriving on a weekday before 5.30pm it's likely that neither of us will be in the flat, so you'll need to pick up the key from a hiding place.
We'll be around on weekday evenings and weekends to offer you advice on the best cafes, restaurants, pubs and lesser known things to do!

Smiling, helpful couple from Aberdeen and Switzerland. We're keen travellers and have been all around the world but for the moment we're settled in Edinburgh and instead, help others in their Scottish adventures.
