    Room was bigger than expected, nice tea and coffee room that is part of the actual bed room. It came with a perfect bed size, it was perfect. It’s perfect distance to all the shops on the main strip.

    The shower takes about 2 minutes to heat up but they told me that in advance.

    Overall ok - good location but old house

    There is no sound insulation in the place and I could hear the guests in the next room.

    The location was perfect for Fringe with a 10-15 minute walk to the Royal Mile. Everything you need is in walking distance. Lyn is a wonderful host. She is so helpful and welcoming. The bed was very comfy. There are plates, cutlery, cups & an electric kettle as well as tea bags & coffee in the room. The room is a good size. I had the one with the private bath.

    It was a little noisy when people checked in & out since my room was next to the owner’s.
