We (family of 2 adults + 2 kids 12 & 9 y.o.) stayed in the appartment for 3 nights; far too short to get to know Edinburgh in full, but we enjoyed it immensely, partly thanks to the perfect location of the apartment.
Its small: 1 double bed + 2 comfy sleeping couches in the 1 room appartment, but with the intelligently furniture its okay for a couple of nights, if you're with close family or best friends.
For a younger couple it should be near perfect.
Princess str and gardens + Scott monument can be seen from the appartment and Sainsbury is ± 5 min. walk away on Rose str. The Royal Mile is about 2 min. walk and Waverly station ± 5 min. downhill, ± 10 min. uphill. See the picture taken from the appartment's window for the view.
The ideal location, free wi-fi, well equiped kitchen, elevator, new and modern shower and magnificient view from the appartment should weigh much havier than the disadvantages: Smalle size and no parking possibilities in front of the appartment. If you're lucky and are willing to take a chance, you can find a spot in front of the pub for loading and unloading, and small size of the appartment.
But who cares, you're staying in the heart and soul of the finest city of Scotland and the UK....
