The immediate area is quiet and peaceful, with restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, banks and other useful amenities all available within a few minutes’ walk. Cameron Toll Shopping Center can be reached in 15 minutes’ on foot.

FROM EDINBURGH AIRPORT:
From right outside the main entrance of the airport, you can take the airport shuttle bus called the AIRLINK 100 to Edinburgh City.
The Airlink 100 will take you to Edinburgh Waverley train station (Waverley Bridge). When you get off, walk up to the top of the street and you will be on Princes street.
Turn right and walk all the way straight down to the end of that road. You will pass the Balmoral Hotel (which will be on your right) and then arrive at a crossing with traffic lights. Cross the road at the lights and turn right and walk UP the bridge to the second bus stop in the centre of the bridge.
Wait there for a bus number 3 or 29 or 8 (if you are arriving after 11:30pm in the evening, wait for a NIGHT BUS - N3) to Gilmerton. Tell the driver you need to get off at the ALDI supermarket (after Liberton High School) on Gilmerton Road. When you get off the bus, on your left will be AVW MOTORS, cross the small road in front of you and we are the first house on the corner with black gate and green door. We are on the main road, directly opposite the ALDI supermarket. It will take approx 20 mins from the city.
FROM WAVERLEY TRAIN STATION:
Come out of Waverley station via the Waverley Steps Exit. At the top of the escalator you will be on the main road (Princes street), turn right and walk all the way straight down to the end of the road. You will pass the Balmoral Hotel (which will be on your right) and then arrive at a crossing with traffic lights. Cross the road at the lights and turn right and walk UP the bridge to the second bus stop in the centre of the bridge.

The furniture of the room was older and different from the furniture at the pictures. Besides that breakfast was very simple. Cost for parking was uncleared.
Also was the room clean and the family very helpful.
The room was clean and our hosts very helpful although we arrived late in the evening. Although the room was about 15 min from the town senter, it was easy to find due to very good instructions given to us by our host. 3 different buses alternatives and a supermarket just outside the house made the room very accessible and practical. We enjoyed breakfast time together with other guests in the common kitchen area.
Nice room, especially the one with en-suite bath is good to stay in Edinburgh. The hospitality of Jannet and her family is awesome and their kindness is making you feel blessed :-)
A warm welcome and a great and clear explanation of all I needed to know about the house and the city it's all I get when I came first in this clean and pretty house.
I have been 10 days in this house and I felt like home away from home.
I surely want to suggest everyone to make this choice!
Great accommodation, amazing people, perfect connections to the city center.
This is simply perfect!
Our time in the Christian Homestay war really great. Everything there was very clean and the family of Jannet very friendly and helpful. They do a great missionary and social job with poor women and kids in this area and do it with all their heart. Our room was fine and we had a wonderful breakfast bufet in the morning with cereals, fruits, toast, jam, tea, coffee, eggs,... There is a bus stop in front of the house. We needed only 15 minutes into the centre of Edinburgh and had to pay only 3,50 for the whole day. Jannets daughter gave us good advice where to go and what to see. Thank you very much for everything! We hope to see you again.
Good location, though far from center, but well connected by public transport. Average room for a low cost, with no room for luggage that must be grounded. The noise of the bathroom that leaked kept me awake several hours. Negative notes: never be a change of towels in 3 days of stay, poor breakfast (butter and jam, sometimes 1 yogurt or fruit) with difficulty finding a place to sit in the 45 minute disposizione.Bisogna wash the dishes yourself as well as dispose of waste from the room at departure. I asked to print a sheet ..I am and was sent to find in center. I asked for a change of money for the bus ..... and I was sent to find at the supermarket. Mah .....
Buona posizione, seppur lontana dal centro, ma ottimamente collegata dai mezzi pubblici. Camera nella media di un low cost, senza spazio per bagagli che vanno messi a terra. Il rumore del bagno che perdeva mi ha tenuto sveglio diverse ore. Note negative: mai previsto un cambio di asciugamani nei 3 giorni di soggiorno, colazione scarsa (burro e marmellata, a volte 1 yogurt o un frutto) con difficoltà a trovare un posto per sedersi nei 45 minuti a disposizione.Bisogna lavarsi da soli le stoviglie come pure gettare i rifiuti dalla camera a fine soggiorno. Ho chiesto la stampa di un foglio e ..sono stato mandato a cercare in centro. Ho chiesto un cambio di moneta per il bus e .....sono stato mandato a cercare al supermercato. Mah.....
it is a nice place near the city. it was just for one night, but everything was fine, clean and everyone was helpfully and friendly. :)
The room was very clean and nicely prepared. All people were very nice and helpful.
Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und schön hergerichtet. Alle Personen waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
