My husband and I stayed in Danielle's flat during our holiday in Edinburgh and we simply loved it! We especially loved our welcoming treats! Danielle makes it unbelievably welcoming to arrive in and very easy to understand where everything is and how it all works.
We arrived by train via London and found it best to take a taxi instead of walking our luggage (definitely take a taxi!). The taxi was very cheap and we avoided walking the hills and through crowds with luggage. It was easy for our taxi driver to find the flat and we slugged up the stairs. The flat itself is updated and nicely styled while also ensuring for maximum comfort. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and made use of the washer and dryer during our stay. The view by far is the best selling point of the flat. It is so incredible to wake up to the castle and to stare at during the night. The area that the flat is in, Grassmarket, has many places to grab a bite to eat and has a lot of fun history as well. There is also Sainsbury's just up the street for groceries. The flat is well within walking distance to the Royal Mile. It took us all about 10-15 minutes to get to it (walking through Grassmarket). However you could take the stairs up towards the castle and be there even faster.
I would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again in a heartbeat. I hope anyone else that chooses to stay here enjoys it as much as we did, but I don't see how anyone couldn't =)
Great location; excellent, cozy apartment in central Edinburgh. A good base from which to explore the tourist attractions in this city. The finishing touches in the apartment are superb, I reckon the photos are an accurate reflection of the apartment. We loved our stay here, and would definitely stay here again.
So I lived in Scotland awhile back and was taking my husband to see it for the first time this last week. I wanted everything to be really special and so I had booked a ton of things to do and great places to stay. I had a nice room (what we could afford) booked at the Balmoral. I was bummed we wouldn't have castle views but we would be close to the Royal Mile and it would be expensive for the two nights, so no upgrades here! But then out of curiosity I searched AirBnB and saw this flat. I checked availability and had a super quick response from the owners, immediately cancelling our room at Balmoral and booking here. It was one of the best things we did the whole trip. The touches throughout the flat were so welcoming and the view was insane as well as the location. Attached is my token photo I took because I couldn't get over where we managed to land for our couple of days in Edinburgh!
Castle Heights is an amazing place. It is centrally located making it easy to get around the entire city. And the views...wow...simply stunning.
The apartment is comfortable, stylishly furnished and well equipped and is located at one end of Grassmarket, Edinburgh old town's lovely old market street, right under the rock that the Castle sits on. It's within walking distance of all the main sights, the University, New Town etc. Our hosts looked after us well, some nice touches including chocolates and prosecco. We had a great time.
The location is brilliant and central with what must be one of the best views in Edinburgh. The apartment itself is lovely and there are a lot of personal touches put in there by Danni that make your stay extra special. Can't recommend highly enough.
Our stay at Castle Heights was more than I imagined. From the expected beautiful views of the castle and the well renovated apartment to the little unexpected surprises Danielle and Roland treat you with. The location couldn't have been better. Just down the street are pubs, cafes, and shops. I can't wait to stay again.
