A little bit cold in the night, but Carina was very helpfull, and the room is beautiful with many places to store your items. We appreciated tea and coffe and fridge in the room, and our privacy
I have stayed well with Carina and Mike. Very warm welcome and with questions they are ready to help. The room was nice and comfortable and I slept well. It was clean and tidy and close to public transportation. Thank you so much.
Carina is a wonderful host! The room was very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. We had biscuits, sandwiches, tea, and coffee in the room when we came in.
Carina is a very pleasant host... she gives her best to offer a good home and stay... she is very helpfull and générons... the location too is very good.... the house in front of the railway station is 7 minutes from the main train station.... and Edinburgh is a wonderfull town....
Thanks Carina & Mike my days in Scotland were one of the best experiences I've ever had, for sure we are going to see you again ¡
Carina was friendly and welcoming. We wanted somewhere to eat close by and Carina's recommendation was just what we wanted. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Carina is a warm and bubbly personality: a real nice host. Lovely little room, everything clean and well looked after. The room even had a fridge, tea facilities and biscuits! Breakfast was also really good. We enjoyed our stay and when we'll visit Edinburgh again (because we surely will!), we'll definitely stay with Carina again.
Absolutely the most wonderful people we had the pleasure meeting in Edinburgh my only regrets is I only spent one night.
We had are great stay with a lovely host, many thanks
