A home from home comfortable warm and convenient for all sights
Lovely walks and close to shops .
Would stay again.
We stayed in this apartment for 5 nights with friends and our son, so there were 4 adults and an 18-month-old, and we were all well accommodated. Our flight landed several hours before check-in, but Petrea (the owner) met us anyway and let us leave our bags in the apartment while it was being cleaned. She had a pack-n-play and plenty of bedding for my son, which was a nice touch. All of our communication with the host before and throughout the week was quick and helpful. The apartment was comfortable with two bathrooms, plenty of options for sleeping, and a well-stocked kitchen. The apartment was right at the foot of a hiking path up King Arthur's Seat, and the top-floor windows look out at the hilltop. We could walk right up the Royal Mile, and it was only about 20 minutes or a cheap cab ride to Prince's Street. We recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Edinburgh!
This was my first experience with a vacation rental and it was a most most positive one to be sure. I needed a flat for a family visit, this Excellent Edinburgh Apartment was ideal. Well located but outside of the busy and congested city center, the apartment was within walking distance (although some long walks) of most of the major attractions and offered great views from Holyrood Park of Arthur's Seat. There are three bedrooms and two baths along with a lovely sitting room and an ample, well equipped kitchen. My brother handled the check-in experience, so I never got the pleasure of meeting Petrea, but my brothers found her just as accommodating as described in other reviews. Do be advised that this flat is on a upper floor and there is no lift, so pack accordingly (we didn't). Overall, we had a lovely stay and couldn't have been happier with this apartment. It had all we needed and provided everything we wanted at an exceptionally good price. I definitely recommend this property if in Edinburgh. Thank You, Petrea!
Stayed here for 2 weeks, lovely self contained flat with all mod cons, including a shelf full of books for light reading and DVD's. The flat has a beautiful view into Hollyrood park where you can walk or have a picnic. Area is peaceful and neighbours friendly. Small shop further down the street for essentials and the larger Meadowbank retail park for everything else. Flat is central for everything, a 20 minute scenic walk will take you on to Princess street. 10 minutes to walk to Hollyrood palace and the stop off point for the big bus at Mary's bath house. For 15 pounds you can travel all over Edinburgh for 24 hours. Would recommend this property to everyone, and I will definitely be staying again. Owner is very friendly too
I found this flat on AirBnB when I was looking for central Edinburgh accommodation for Canadian friends. The flat is lovely. Well-equipped, great location, and stunning views across Arthur's Seat. Our host was wonderfully friendly, despite the fact we were delayed and late on arrival. This flat is particularly well prepared for children, we were given a cot, a high chair, and even baby blankets for playing on. Many, many thanks.
The apartment is spacious and tidy. It fit 6 of us comfortably, including our young daughter. Outside the front window is a spectacular view of the seat, and the park is handy to have right across the road. The Queen's palace, the science center and groceries are all a 10 minute walk a way. The owners were prompt and easy to deal with. A must stay place in your travels!
