Stayed here for a weekend at the end of Feb. Booked well in advance on booking.com as it was a rugby weekend. The owner from time of booking was superb. Communication and information from him was fantastic. The location of the apartment could not be better. Rose street has everything. Bars, resturants shops and a stones throw from Princes Street, buses, Waverley Train station and the tram link to the airport.
The apartment is on the first floor, keys were left in the security key box at the front door. We were with friends so there was a set of keys each. The apartment is superb, just like the photos, stylish, modern and spotlessly clean. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment despite being in a busy area was very quiet, there was no noise from the outside at all so the sleep quality was great. The bedrooms, two, are both double beds and there is a sofa bed in the living room. There is plenty of wardrobe space, hairdryer provided, towels and toilet roll. The kitchen is fully equipped. Has a microwave, washing machine hob and oven. There was also milk and butter in the fridge and some basic dry stores supplies. We were very impressed. You literally do not need to bring anything. There is a small Co-Op shop around the corner and a Sainsburys just up the road. There are literally hundreds of places to eat and drink near the apartment and the owner supplies some tourist information in the apartment too. If you are coming from Edinburgh Airport jump on the tram the Princes Street stop is a five min walk from the apartment. Return ticket was £8 each and it took 25 mins. We have stayed in many apartments in Edinburgh over the years and this one was by far the best. We will stay again the next time we visit. Superb.
A lovely 2 double bed flat, with great living space. Most importantly RIGHT in the middle of Edinburgh, short walk from Waverley and all the touristy bits. Gareth, the owner and host, could not have been more helpful. Plenty of places to eat and drink but if you just fancy a no fuss but awesome pizza, head to 'dough' about 2 minutes away.
Myself and my bridesmaids had a wonderful weekend here, the place was so cosy and welcoming that we felt right at home. It's a fantastic location, comfortable and quiet in the bedrooms. All amenities are supplied and everything is easy to use. The owner was fantastic in the lead up also and let us place an online order which he kindly sorted for us on arrival. Thank you!
We are so happy that we have found a little gem of an apartment right in the centre of Edinburgh , we couldn't fault a thing , every little detail had been thought through and provided even down to earplugs in our room but glad to say I didn't even need them even though it was near year celebrations , we stayed as a family with 2 young children and it was like home from home , we have booked to go back already ,5star plus!!
We just returned from a two night break in this apartment and loved it. The location is amazing for exploring Edinburgh. We were only minutes from all the Christmas festivities in Princes Street Gardens.
The apartment was absolutely spotless and had everything you could need for a short break. The decor was beautiful and it didn't feel like a holiday rental at all.
We loved that you could hear all the people passing by on Rose Street at night while in the living room but you couldn't hear a thing once you went to the bedrooms so it was easy to get a great nights sleep.
I'd definitely recommend this apartment whether you're a first time visitor or a regular visitor like us. You won't regret it.
A great apartment with lots of space. We stayed for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The apartment is situated on busy Rose street, with many pubs and restaurants outside. However, the noise never seemed to reach us or keep us awake. The apartment itself was well kept, welcoming and had all the required ameneties.
Communication with the owner was great, and even went the extra mile to let us know we could check out later which was handy as our flight was later in the day.
A flat in a great location for seeing Edinburgh without having to worry about transport.
