“Great location, good apartment but....”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Couldn't ask for a better location. Apartment was a good size and pretty clean (rug in living room could really do with replacing and kitchen wasn't as clean as I expected). The bed linens and towels were plentiful and very clean and fresh. You can hear all the bustle of Edinburgh at the front of apartment but the bedrooms are nice and quite at the back. We hired a car whilst we were there and rented a parking space a 9 minute walk away through just park.com.
Unfortunately the stairs leading up to the apartment were not kept very clean and we were never sure what we would see on them next - food, blood and worse left there for days on end. There was also a very bad smell (like stale cooking) that came through the bathroom that really marred the enjoyment of the apartment. As is probably standard with these type of apartments someone is always pressing the buzzer (postman maybe) early in the morning.These things are obviously beyond the control of the owners but they are reasons that I wouldn't book this particular apartment again.

I am sorry there wee some aspects of the property you disliked. Some are out of control if you were disturbed by the intercom buzzer, it is not something that has been reported to us before. I am not sure what you thought you experienced in the shower room as this was re-done only a few months back.

Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What a great location. We were in Edinburgh for a wedding and our apartment became the meeting place for family and friends since it was large and centrally located. Only about 50 yards from the Starbucks were many of the free tours start and four restaurants within 30 yards. Grocery and bus a block away. Just a word on stairs, you do go up a spiral stair case to reach the apartment.

“Mrs”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Great place to stay. Well furnished and very comfortable. Fab base for central Edinburgh - just off the Royal Mile and around the corner from a range of supermarkets (there was a small supply of tea, coffee and milk when we got there, which was a nice surprise!) - but also so close to the many restaurants and bars in Edinburgh that you probably won't need the supermarkets - although the kitchen is sufficiently supplied that I could make a Sunday Roast as usual.

Would recommend without hesitation.

Great appartement with a very kind manager. Right downtown without noticing any city zest. The place is roomy, luxurious and beautiful. Definitely advisable.

“Great Location, in the heart of Edinburgh”
Reviewed 2 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This apartment is very spacious and has all the equipment you need for your stay. The apartment is very clean and well presented. In a perfect location with bars, pubs and café on the doorstep. We had a great weekend there with friends and would certainly go back. I did find the apartment a bit cold because of the electric heating in the bedrooms but it was November and the temperature had dropped outside.

Stayed here for a weekend with friends and their 6m old and our 2 year old daughter. The owners were very accommodating providing suitable bedding and equipment for the kids. The location is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. It is very spacious with lovely high ceilings and a cosy gas fire. Had a very comfortable stay and would definitely consider returning if visiting Edinburgh again.

“Perfect Location for EdFringe 2015”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Myself and 4 other adults stayed in this apartment for 3 nights, very comfortably.

We were visiting for Edinburgh Fringe and the location was fantastic. Directly beneath the apartment is the City Cafe, which is one of the Fringe locations and a great place to get food and drinks (amazing breakfasts!! Great food! Excellent Beer).

The apartment itself is pretty huge, lovely, comfortable, with everything we needed. We met Dave on arrival and he went through everything we needed to know and showed us where to find free car parking and return to town on the bus.

The apartment is right in the middle of the city, too so perfect for any visit to Edinburgh.

We intend to visit again for the Fringe next year and will definitely be booking this accommodation again. Highly recommended
