Raul's apartment was a good basic place to stay. We didn't spend much time there because we were out exploring the city but the bed was comfortable. Raul was very accommodating about check in and check out times, which was great. His friend Sean who met us with the keys and gave an orientation of the apartment was very nice and friendly.
El lugar está como a 20 min caminando del centro, bien conectado. No conocí a Raúl en persona ya que no estaba en la ciudad, pero estuvo todo el tiempo preocupado de que estuviésemos cómodos a través de mensajes. Nos recibió Sean, quien es también increíble simpático y preocupado de que estuviésemos cómodos. El depto es cómodo con todo lo necesario. Totalmente recomendable.
While we didn't meet our host, he had arranged for another person to welcome us. Sean provided the needed information about the flat. The flat was as described. The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen has the need amenities. While we didn't use it, the flat also has a washing machine. The flat is in a residential area and is centrally located between two main bus routes. It was very convenient to get to the major sites in Edinburgh.
Although we did't meet Raul personally, he has been very present, kind and he gave us useful tips. The neighborhood is really quiet and well-connected with the bus from the city centre. The apartment is clean and simple, we enjoyed our time at home after a busy day and would definetely recommend!
Lovely little apartment, fully equipped and really clean and tidy. Pretty central (15 min walk) and near shops and buses into the centre. Nice quiet area - very peaceful at night. Raul was super helpful and answered all our questions - he was away when we arrived so he arranged for a friend to give us the keys which worked well. Overall, a really lovely stay and an excellent host!
