7a Jamaica Street

Edinburgh New Town
3 bedrooms
2 bathrooms
5 guests


This is a large and extremely central flat, yet it is very quiet for a comfortable nights sleep at the end of a long day. It comfortably sleeps 5 people (king size double, twin room, single room). Please note two rooms within the premises, used for sleeping, are classed as an inner room and therefore pose a higher fire safety risk to guests, in terms of escape in the event of a fire. This property is in a great location and enjoys its own main door entrance and has a small outside area at the front by the main door with a table and chairs for if the weather is nice enough to sit outside.

The flat is located in the heart of popular New Town, less that a 5min walk from George Street and Princes Street. This means the apartment is within easy walking distance of all the main attractions but also from the train station, the airport bus stop and the trams. The tram goes all the way to the airport or a taxi is £20-£30. There is also a supermarket 2 min from the front door and numerous places for breakfast, lunch, supper and drinks a stones throw away. It really is is a wonderful location!

I would recommend not bringing a car as everything is walkable but if you do then it is worth mentioning that on Friday after 5.30pm there is free parking on many of the streets near the flat until Monday morning at 8.30am. Between the hours of 8.30am-5.30pm Monday to Friday you will need to pay and display. Parkopedia is a great site to look at parking in advance of your stay, or JustPark is an app that will help you book a space in advance so you don't have to think about it when you arrive.

We have a keybox erected at the property to allow for a flexible arrival post 4pm.

I stayed with two other women and it worked out fine. The beds were so comfortable and the rooms were clean and clutter free. Sonia left lots of recommendations…so nice of her! After a day of exploring Scotland, this place was perfect for sleeping. We all felt at home here!

For us it was the ideal location. Good beds for a good night's sleep!

We felt very comfortable in this adorable place! We loved that there aren’t windows in two of the bedrooms because we were so tired from sightseeing that we would sleep all night in those dark, comfortable rooms! We would definitely stay again!

Our stay at Sonia's accommodation has been perfect. The apartment is very nice, cozy, spacious and very well located, just over 5 minutes walk from Princess Street, which makes it very comfortable to arrive from the airport and access to the main points of the city. We traveled with 2 small children and the house had everything we needed. To highlight the kitchen equipment. Communication with Sonia has been fluid and fast, in different ways. 100% recommended

Amazing stay! Sonia even allowed us to check-in early as the cleaning crew were done cleaning and ready for us to arrive!

Clean, cosy and central flat with accessible facilities throughout. We were so impressed with the decor, the furnishings are warm and inviting. Great communication between us and the host, and I would recommend for a small group or family. So glad we booked this - thank you!

Lovely and comfortable flat centrally located in the New Town. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. Spotlessly clean and really good communication with the host. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again

This basement flat has been recently modernised to a high standard, tastefully decorated & furnished with a good sized lounge to relax in. The double bedroom, bathroom, shower room, kitchen and dining room have no outside windows - all internal rooms. The kitchen is well equipped . The property has its own entrance & is very secure. Only slight downside was the outside which needed weeding & whilst there was an outside table & chairs they were broken so we couldn’t sit outside to enjoy the sunshine! A convenient & comfortable location which was ideal for what we wanted.

Beautiful home in a fabulous location. Very easy to find and let ourselves in using the lockbox. The house was warm, clean, beautifully decorated and very well appointed with everything we could need. Many thanks from the Flackett Family (parents & 4 children 11yrs, 9yrs, 7yrs and 4yrs).

Apartment is well situated in a quiet but central area very handy for Princes Street (shops), Rose Street and George Street (Pubs and restaurants) the Castle Area (pubs, restaurants and tat) and Stockbridge (more restaurants and bars). Living area is very comfortable and kitchen well equipped. Not far from Waverley station and handy for bus and tram routes. Very good

We had a great three day stay with our group of 5! The space is beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and two full bathrooms. Much of the apartment is fully interior (no windows) so it is a bit dark but this made for a comfortable, cozy space and a great sleep. Very central with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Recommend 100%!

Exactly as described - well appointed comfortable flat. Really handy location - quiet but walking distance to most attractions. Very handy Sainsbury’s local around the corner. Nice living area - good sized bedrooms.

Celia was an exceptional host and responded quickly to any conversation via email/ messages. We felt the accommodation was superbly situated. Very convenient for all areas of Edinburgh. The only point that was something we hadn’t appreciated was that 2 of the bedrooms are windowless and consequently quite dark and airless. Otherwise a brilliant stay in a tidy well maintained home . Thank you

Located in a quiet area, private and cheerful but within steps outside the door, we were able to enjoy many areas of the city within walking distance. The Edinburgh castle, royal mile, botanical gardens and many lovely restaurants. The apt itself was clean and had everything we needed to have a lovely stay. Any questions were quickly answered via email. Property easily accessed and accurately described. Comfortable space for 5 people.

We had a really lovely stay in 7A Jamica Street. The apartment was cosy and was made to feel homely with all the extra touches. The apartment had everything you needed in and the information about everything was clear. We struggled to find lockers in the bus station to store our bags in on the day we got there but we rung Eddie and he was able to communicate with the cleaner so that we were able to drop of our bags early which was a lifesaver! The cleaner (sorry didn't catch her name) was lovely and the apartment was clean and left at a very high standard.

Absolutely brilliant apartment. We were a party of 4 ladies in Edinburgh for a Christmas market break. The apartment is in a great location with very easy access to the city centre. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are nice and cosy. If we had to say a negative it would be the entrance to the courtyard was very uneven and muddy and quite dark for our arrival at night and in the rain. Overall a very enjoyable experience and would return.

A nice spacious ground floor apartment in a quiet neighborhood. We have had a good time here. The beds were good and the living room was spacious with a good TV and internet connection. The house was clean and easily accessible. In the immediate vicinity you will find a supermarket and various restaurants and pubs. On the way to the center (10 minutes walk) you will find even more facilities. We have mainly camped in the center and have only moved on foot, from the Botanical Gardens to Arthur's Seat. Fortunately we had dry weather. We have also experienced this differently. In short; recommended.

This apartment is just as depicted in the photos and description and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It is so centrally located to the heart of Edinburgh's City Center and in a very lovely, quiet neighborhood. It is conveniently steps away from a grocery store (and one of the best coffee shops/breakfast spots in Edinburgh (Leo's Bakery - and do try their banana bread!). If you visit Edinburgh, I highly recommend this flat.

The apartment was really nice and cosy, and well equipped. The ventilation in the inner bedrooms could have been better, the air got thick and heavy during the night. Would have liked some shelves or similar in the single bedroom to leave clothes. The pegs behind the door were fine for jackets and shirts, but maybe the bedside table could have been replaced with a small chest of 2-3 drawers for lingerie, trousers etc. Location was fantastic, quiet surroundings, yet everything we needed was litterally just around the corner. The castle, Princess Street etc were just a short walk from the apartment. All in all, very happy, and will certainly have this place in mind if coming back to Edinburgh.

We agree with other guests comments on the beautiful facilities of the apartment,the location, the many restaurants nearby etc. We have stayed in many apartments in various large cities and this is one where we felt welcomed and "at home." When we needed extra assistance Celia and the team at BHH were there to support our needs. This very personal touch helped to make our holiday a memorable one.We definitely recommend 7a Jamaica Street. Thank you Celia!

We spent a family New Year at this excellent apartment. The apartment is spacious, modern and wonderfully decorated. It accommodated the six of us comfortably. It is located in one of central Edinburgh's best locations, only 5 to 10 minutes walk from Princes Street. The host Celia made us welcome and was keen to make sure our stay was a success. Celia - many thanks for making our stay so special.
