The check in/check out was smooth. The area is in a nice residential, approximately 30 min walk to happening area. Unfortunately, the place was not cleaned. Make up marks on pillow cover, and hair all over the bed sheet makes the place not rare 5 star. Even we spotted smarties on the living room rug, which another sign the place wasn't cleaned. The rest was good!

If you're interested in the castle, STAY HERE. The location is amazing. You get to be neighbors with Edinburgh castle and are close to lots of lively pubs and bars. The place itself is old with a lot of character and William gave perfect instructions for our check in. Would stay again!

Hello! My name is Will, and I have been living in Edinburgh on and off for 10 years. I'm a Senior Mechanical Engineer and have been lucky enough to be involved with some large Engineering projects around the world.
I therefore travel alot and thought it might be a good idea to try airbnb and allow people access to my beautiful central Edinburgh flat. The flat itself is nearly 200 years old and is perfect for a weekend retreat or a base to explore.

Other than travelling and working I enjoy reading, photography, films and fishing. If I am not in the country I am lyou will be looked after by either one of my friends or my girlfriend.
