We've stayed at several apartments booked via trip advisor. This is one of, if not the best, we've had the pleasure of staying at. The communication was timely and thorough. We plan to return to Edinburgh in the near future. We will re-book this property for sure.
What a super, modern, clean, comfortable apartment. It had everything we needed for our stay. Real bonus of a parking space as we had to bring a car. The location is amazing, it is situated in a quiet close but everything we needed was within walking distance. When we return to Edinburgh will definitely book again. Thank you Chris.
My family and I were looking for the perfect place to spend a couple days in Edinburgh and this apartment exceeded our expectations. It was easy to locate and it's location is close to everything we were looking to see. There are so many great restaurants close by and public transportation to get wherever you need. Great place to stay to really feel like you live in Edinburgh. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a hotel alternative!
Chris' apartment is great. Two bedrooms and two baths was perfect for the three of us; four could be comfortable as well. We loved the location - it is residential and extremely quiet, but close to many restaurants and shops. We could easily walk to the Castle, the Royal Mile, the start of the Arthur's Seat hike, and the National Museum of Scotland (all 20-25 minutes, perhaps?), but could get away from those crowded areas and get a good night's sleep at "home." The apartment was extremely clean and very well appointed, with a fully equipped kitchen. The decor is very tranquil and tasteful, a palette of yellows, grays and light woods. Sunny. (When Edinburgh is sunny, that is...) Wi-Fi was excellent. Do note it is on an upper floor (3rd?) and there are stairs to get to it; not a big deal at all but those with mobility issues might want to consider. There are just two tiny things I would suggest providing - a couple towels that are smaller than shower towels for drying hands/washing face, and some soap or shower gel in the shower. (Although I will say most of our rentals in Scotland did not provide this). It's hard to carry a bar of soap as you're traveling, and shower gel is another liquid to fit into a clear quart-sized bag. (We are carry on people!) So a bottle of shower gel or a dispenser would be welcome. Speaking of providing things, however, there were some coffee fixings and small packages of shortbread provided, and that was a very nice touch. If you stay here - and you should! - there's a great place for breakfast right around the corner on the main street. I think it's called Cafe Marjolaine or something like that. The waffle with bacon and maple syrup was awesome! I guess we were too busy eating the waffle to get the name right. :) Anyway, communication with Chris was very smooth and we heartily recommend this apartment and the surrounding area. Don't hesitate!
Nice and practical apartment. 20 min to city center by walk. Owner is kind and helpful. We had a great time.
Apartment lovely, clean and very comfortable. 10 minutes from Waverley station and the centre of Edinburgh, located in a very quiet part of town. Would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling to Edinburgh.
