“Lovely apartment in wonderful location and topped with great service and communication from Alexis the owner”
Reviewed 15 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed here in Jan and had a fantastic time despite rain and snow. Apartment is lovely and cosy, beautifully furnished and equipped. Alexis was out of the country but still kept in touch which was very helpful and reassuring, even arranged for bread and jam to be left for us. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who wants a comfortable break in a gteat location

“Very well put together apartment”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

It's easy to see from the pictures how nicely decorated the apartment is but what you can't see is how well the space is used and put together. A lot of thought has gone into how it flows and it works really well. Location is fantastic, very central but very quiet. Spotlessly cleaned and well maintained. The added touches of coffee machine, blue tooth speaker, milk etc and alexis' welcome makes it a perfect place to stay in Edinburgh.

Thank you so much for the great review. I do love it when people notice the meticulous (some would say pedantic!) planning that goes into the apartments! I'm delighted you had a great time and you're welcome back any time :-)

“Amazing Apartment”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

My girlfriend and myself stayed in this apartment for four nights in November. The location is perfect, quiet and seconds away from some great restaurants and bars around Grassmarkets and Bow St.

The apartment is tucked away on a quiet street, and is in a gated building so you feel completely safe. It is professionally decorated (I believe Alexis is an interior designer) and has wifi access and a lovely kitchen, which came in handy one evening after our bank balances took a beating from all the good food and beer available nearby.

There is a short walk in to town, which passes the tourist attractions like the castle, the royal mile and the art galleries, as well as a lot of nice independent cafes, bars, vintage shops and bakeries. The walk is lovely and you get to take in all the fantastic Edinburgh architecture.

Alexis was extremely accommodating and helpful. The apartment was much better than any of the hotels we looked at, especially considering how reasonably it was priced. I would recommend the apartment to anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh, and we will definitely stay there, or in one of Alexis' other properties, when we visit again in the future.

“Great flat, great location”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Described as BIJOU and it is, very Bijou. That said it has absolutely everything you need for a great visit to Edinburgh.A genuinely friendly welcome from the owner who provided bread, tea, coffee, milk etc. when meeting us on arrival. This apartment is all about location, you can walk to absolutely everywhere of interest with no problems and you are just yards from many pubs and restaurants. Places like this are why I choose not to stay in hotels unless I have to. Must also mention the fab cocktail bar right opposite , what more could you want?

I rented this apartment from Alexis for my last 3 days in Scotland. As a woman travelling solo, I wanted to make sure that I was in a safe location, but I also wanted to make sure that I was in the heart of Edinburgh. Check on both counts! But even better - the place is right in the Grassmarket, with a nice cocktail bar across the street (the Dragonfly, which I highly recommend) a great little coffee shop and a grocery store up the street. I was able to shop in the Grassmarket and drop my bags off so that I didn't have to pack them around all day. I was also able to go back and change when the weather turned, so it was nice not to have to pack and umbrella and raincoat around. In the evening, when I wanted to go for a drink, the pubs and bars are nearby and you don't have to worry about navigating your way home in the dark, or through scary neighbourhoods. Finally - I was looking for a place that had some soul, and Alexis delivered. I highly recommend this place and will book it again my next time in Edinburgh.
