“Perfect home base for 5”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I'm sorry I am a year behind in this review as the apartment was an excellent place to come home to every day. Frederika and family manage the building beautifully and are very welcoming and helpful. The apartment was comfortable and convenient and as we had a car it was wonderful to have a secure car park. Would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends.

Very nice,big,comfortable,luxery appartment. Only 10 minutes walking distance from the city. In the building from the appartment is an swimmingpool and sauna. Me and my 5 friends had an amazing time in the appartment and the city. All the beds are sleeping comfortable. The host is very kind and helpfull.

Our great experience with Edinburgh at Home started already before our trip - we received carefully collected information about the place,the facilities and how to find it. When we arrived we were awaited by Agnes, who showed us everything, from the safe car park in the courtyard via the indoor pool to the roof terrace. We stayed in apt 18 which was really a home from home for our group of 6 and contained everything we needed including fresh milk and orange juice. There are several shops and restaurants nearby and Haymarket station is five minutes to walk.There you can take the new tram to the city or airport. And we really appreciated the possibility to leave our luggage in the room till afternoon on the day of our departure.

5 of us stayed at number 29 for a concert at Murrayfield. What a location - 5 mins from Haymarket, walked to the stadium and walked into Edinburgh city centre.
We did have a car which we were able to park safely.
The apartmemt itself was great for the 5 of us though might have felt a bit small for 8. Had everything you needed and the beds were great. 1 room has a skylight rather than a window but was fine for the children.
My only comment is a second bathroom would have been ideal though appreciate there is no space.
The pool was great though gym equipment not up too much.
lovely roof terrace too.
The owner is really nice and goes out of her way to accommodate you.
Just check you get an email about how to get keys. We didn't and just assumed we would be met and although the owner was there to meet us she was inside the complex and it took us a while to get in contact as we didn't have her mobile.

We stayed in apt 18 which was very spacious for a family of 4. The apt was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Easy access on foot to Haymarket station and local shops. Used the nearby leisure complex which has a Cineworld, ten pin bowling, Pizza Hut and Nandos which is 5 mins walk from the apt. Used the swimming pool everyday to unwind after visiting Edinburgh's main atrractions. The gym equipment could do with replacing as hardly anything was working which was a pity.

We were a group of 9. Grandparents, the parents and grandchildren. The apartment was perfect for us. The location was really good as we visited the zoo, the gardens and old Edinburgh. We got a train from the Haymarket station into the city for less than it cost on the bus. Took about 4 minutes. The pool at the apartments was a great hit with us all and so pleasantly warm too. The apartment was clean and easy to live in. Agnes was a delight as was her assistant whom we met as we were leaving. Journey from airport was so easy too. The apartment only about 10 minute walk from the Haymarket stop. All in all it was ideal for us and I would recommend it unreservedly. We are all hoping that we will be able to repeat the experience in the future.

Room Tip: Do not be put off by the surroundings when you arrive. I panicked a bit but it was lovely when we w...
