My 17 year old daughter and I stayed here while visiting the University of Edinburgh from the U.S. It was delightful in every way and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Jill ensured we were well-prepared in advance, and the location of the flat made ground transportation extremely easy. Although we arrived from our flight well before the flat would normally be ready, we were met at the door, given a key and place to store our luggage, and directions to the university and eating options so we could begin orienting ourselves. A Sainsbury's is nearby so we saved on expenses by having a pub meal out every day--there are many excellent options nearby--and eating at the well-appointed flat at other times. The flat had modern plumbing and plentiful hot water, which was unexpected, and it was quite safe for my daughter to go shopping or sight-seeing on her own when she wished. It is on The Mound so beautifully situated for cultural excursions, shopping, and the university, and being so close to Waverly Station is ideal. We could hear bag-piping buskers very faintly from our flat but on the 8th floor there was little street noise. The wifi was consistent as was the elevator, with only one exception. We will definitely be back!
