“Perfect for a short stay in Edinburgh with family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2010

A great place to stay. We booked this just for a single night for a shopping/theatre visit in Edinburgh. A very nice 2 bedroom apartment with all the mod cons needed. Just a short drive from Prince's street. We were travelling with two small children, so was great to have access to the swimming pool. Also, available car parking quite rare in Edinburgh. The apartment is part of a large complex of other flats. You drive into a central courtyard accessed by security gate, so very safe.

20minute walk to city center. great public transport service near by. apartment is very well decorated and taken care of. also the apartment lock is very secure and safe, using both keys and codes to ensure safety and privacy.

Stayed here for 2 and 1/2 weeks mon-fri for business purposes. Was everything i needed in one place, nice and clean, great kitchen for cooking, always loads of hot water, nice and warm and cosy, and well decorated throughout, a real home from home feeling. Had free secure off street parking which is a real bonus for edinburgh, a pool and some gym equipment - free as well. Also 5min walk to haymarket station and 2min walk to a somerfield supermarket for groceries. Thanks again Agnes for having me, i would definately recommend to anyone.

Like our previous visit in 2008 (to a different apartment in the same block) the flat was well and attractively furnished and equipped. Having secure parking available is a major bonus as on - street parking in Edinburgh can only be described as a nightmare. Being able to take the dog is one of our defining requirements!

Easy access to shops for "normal day to day living"; nearby newsagents make getting a morning paper easy. (To me this is important!)

Would definitely stay at this location again.
