During your stay you will have access to the rest of the flat. I have a fully fitted kitchen which is equipped with all mod cons. You are welcome to cook meals, or wat with me if I happen to be home and cooking! Also you are welcome to help yourself to anything is the cupboards...just, please don't eat everything! Your are also free to use the living room with a television and free view during your stay. Please note that I have a pet rabbit who lives in my living room. The rabbit won't ever be in your room, but if you have allergies please keep this in mind. I have an internet dongle which you are free to use during your stay to check emails, and look up Edinburgh's tourist attractions! There is also on street parking available.
While you are in Edinburgh I can give you advice on the best places to go and things to do. The area has great amenities and an excellent bus service which will have you in the West End in just 15 minutes. Edinburgh is packed with great shopping, tasty restaurants, and historical sights, including Princes Street, the Royal Mile and of course Edinburgh Castle. You will never be stuck for anything to do!
I am a friendly host who will do all in my power to ensure you have a relaxing, fun and memorable stay!

Reviews of this property
Care for ruining your health while being video-taped?
I strongly recommend against staying in this place.
The room I stayed is humid and damp and it smells of fungi (the consequence of too much humidity, inproper isolation, etc). You cannot put anything in the closets since it will overtake the smell of the room. No matter how much you open the window (only a small portion of the window can be opened), the fungi and humidity smell remains. Well, if you want to do something for your health, don't expose yourself to that room.
Additionally, there is a video camera in the hall that records all the time. I do not know if there are also cameras in the kitchen, bath or the actual bedroom. The one in the hall is the most obvious. I do understand why the camera is there, but it would have been nice to actually write about it somewhere. And again, the questions remains unanswered if there are other cameras in other rooms as well. And if the video-camera situation does not disturb you, go for a hostel (or some other place), but don't expose your health to all that fungi in the room.
Also this is a professional rental flat. The host does not live there, all rooms are intended to be potentially rented out. So, if you are looking for the "staying at a local's flat"-experience, this is again not your place to be. Speaking about the host, she is a manifestation of rudeness and impoliteness, in case you need additional reasons to not stay there.
Great hospitality. The flatmates have been very kind. My husband and me were in a large, luminous and clean room. Living room, kitchen and toilet were shared with other flatmates and all was both clean and tidy enough. The flat was 20-30 min from the downtown by bus and 20 min from the airport by car.
I stayed at Anne's place on the night of 19th August.
The room (and the flat) was as advertised and she's a lovely host.There's a bus stop two minutes from the flat and the number 37 takes you into the west end in 15 minutes.
It is in a suburban area, but it was perfectly safe, so don't be put off!
I would definitely stay again at Anne's if in Edinburgh.
Absolutely brilliant stay !!! I had a lot of fun, it can only recommend!
Absolut genialer Aufenthalt!!! Ich hatte unglaublich viel Spaß, kann es nur jedem empfehlen!
Do you like adventure?
At the township of Edinburgh you will find a familiary, cheap and wellcoming - but a little different than expected - B&B.
Anne is like a flummy, always "under current". (We wondered this woman never sleeps!)
Especially, chilled and plain - this is Anne - and you have to be too! :)
A specially adventure - we enjoyed a lot!
The room was lovely and it had everything we needed.
It was great to be with a person like Anne she was very helpful and we have had fun with her.
We even watched a film together it was like being with a best friend
or a member of your family.
We have made a great friend; it was a wonderful experience and I hope to
meet Anne again soon.

We were in Edinburgh in december. That is a beautiful time because of the Xmas lights in the city. Staying with Anne feels like staying with a friend. She is very helpfull.
Zimmer und Badezimmer total verschimmelt. Absolut nicht zu empfehlen. Wir sind nach einer Nacht direkt wieder ausgezogen. Leider zeigt sich die Gastgeberin sehr uneinsichtig und ist für uns auch nur telefonisch erreichbar gewesen. Der Gastgeberin ist der Schimmel in der Wohnung bekannt, aber sie ist der Meinung, das Schimmel gesundheitsgefährdend sei, sei unsere Meinung. Sie hat zu Schwarzschimmel scheinbar eine positive Beziehung, wir leider nicht! Als das Fenster geschlossen war, war es kaum geruchlich auszuhalten. Sie bittet darum, das die Gäste ihre Schuhe ausziehen, was dazu führt, das man feuchte Socken bekommt, da auch der Teppichboden feucht ist. Die Tapete ist auch wellig, was definitiv ein Zeichen für Feuchtigkeit ist. Unser Fazit, diese Unterkunft können wir niemandem empfehlen.
Die Adresse war aufgrund der fehlenden Hausnummer (9) nicht eindeutig zu identifizieren. Aber mit etwas Anlauf haben wir die Wohnung gefunden, allerdings haben wir unsere Gastgeberin nicht kennengelernt. Das Zimmer war wie beschrieben und die Wohnung mit allem ausgestattet, was man für einen Besuch in der Stadt benötigt.
Was wir allerdings nicht wussten, war die Tatsache, dass mit uns noch andere Gäste in der Wohnung waren. Insgesamt sind hier drei Zimmer und so lernten wir noch einen Deutschen und zwei Italiener kennen.
Etwas schade, dass manche Gäste ihren Müll nicht entfernen, dafür gab es Punktabzug.
Alles in allem eine günstige Alternative mit einer guten Anbindung an die Busverbindung.
We´re sorry we haven´t met. Please add the housenumber for coming guests!

Reviews for this host's other properties
This small room is part of a guest house which consists out of 3 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom.
The kitchen and the bathroom are fine. You can use an oven, a cooker, there is a fridge and a froster as well.
The room itself is quite dirty and really small.
The guest house is located in a very dirty and messy area. A positive aspect is that the bus stop which is directly connected to the centre is just 5 minutes away.
Anne, the host, seems to be very friendly and relaxed. But if she is not 100% satisfied with the behavior of the guests, she is getting angry, unfriendly and pissed off. There was a little problem during my stay as Anne said people wouldn't use the washing machine correctly.
But in fact, me and another guest agreed that the washing machine itself was damaged and not working correctly and no one used it. Unfortunately, Anne threatened to throw us guests out of the flat although we didn't do anything wrong.
All in all I can recommend this room as a cheap opportunity to stay in Edinburgh. But I wouldn't stay there longer than 1-2 nights.
