Management Response
16 Apr 2013
Hi, Thank you for your fair review of my apartment. I agree with your comments and can state that this year all of these issues will be addressed; stair improvements - mainly carpet cleaning. The second bedroom will always be "cosy", which is fine for most partners and families, but we can improve on the comfort level by upgrading the trundle bed to the best possible standard. City centre living will always entail a certain degree of street noise and most agree that the location in unbeatable, but whilst we already installed secondary glazing in the bedroom areas,I plan to upgrade and noise-proof further.

Of course there's nothing I can do (in the absence of an elevator) about the apartment being on the second floor within a building constructed in 1790, but actually the stairs aren't too many (naturally it's relative) or that steep, more winding - try Paris! The good news is that we now own the apartment below, on the first floor, with the same fantastic views of Edinburgh Castle and furnished to the same five star standard. This is also available for short term holiday lets and is obviously the preferable option for any of our guests with mobility issues. I would be delighted to offer you a discount for any repeat stay in the future to enable you to evaluate these planned changes taking place in 2013. Best wishes, Morris

“Luxurious comforts of home in a fabulous location.”

A tremendous location and elegantly appointed apartment with everything from a steam shower to a fully appointed kitchen with expresso machine. If you have trouble with stairs, beware you have three flights to ascend. And, if you want to sleep with your windows open during the Fringe Festival, think again. Thankfully, this thoughtful owner has installed sound proof windows. You cannot beat the location off Princes Street.
