As a base to spend Christmas with family, this was the ideal choice. A very comfortable flat, well maintained with excellent facilities. We enjoyed our second stay every bit as much as the first.
Fantastic 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment walking distance to city centre. Comfortable, clean, warm and felt safe. Good communication. Would definitely go back
We stayed in Wow Factor Georgian Flat for 4 nights in September. It was 3 of us, all adults. The apartment includes 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, which worked very well for us. From the start, i.e., e-mail communications with the owner Jaruwan, everything proceeded smoothly. He answered all our questions and in the apartment we had a lot of helpful information as well. We made all payments through TripAdvisor. We got our Deposit back as promised a few days after our return home. It was easy to check-in (2 pm) and check-out.
The apartment itself was wonderful! Nicely furnished, well maintained, clean and well stocked. High ceilings, a lot of volume. The pictures on TA are very true. One thing was very misleading – location; correct address was provided, but location showed on TripAdvisor map is incorrect. I trusted TA and didn’t check the real location by entering address, because it never happened to us before. We booked this apartment mostly because of its location (shown on TA map) and proximity to Old Town/Royale Mile. In reality, the location is 1 mile away from the location shown on TA map; it means extra 2 miles for the round trip. On the very first day when we were not aware about real distance, we almost lost our pre-paid reservations to Edinburg Scotch Whisky Experience, when we realized how far it really was we barely made it in last moment by hiring taxi. Unfortunately the apartment was not that close for us that we could go back and forth during the day (~30-35 min of fast walk for us one way to Royale Mile), with Scottish weather (wind and rain) it was not very pleasant most of the time
Again, the apartment itself was very nice. It has living/dining/kitchen room, two bedrooms (one is the Master BR with king size bed and another with two single beds), 2 bathrooms. Everything was in perfect shape. The kitchen was well stocked: all sort of dishes, glasses, cups, utensils, pots and frying pans, etc. – good quality and plenty of everything. There was also salt, pepper, some other seasonings, sugar, a few kinds of tea and instant coffee, oil, vinegar, paper towels, etc. We also got bottled water, cereal, oatmeal, and milk and fresh orange juice are in fridge. Very nice, thank you! Liquid soap was in the both bathrooms. You just need to bring shampoo/conditioner/toothpaste, etc. The apartment was also equipped with a dishwasher and a washer. A detergent for the washer and dishwasher was provided as well.
We had a car, parked it on the parking lot of the hotel in the same building. The residential neighborhood was nice, clean and quiet, no noise, we could sleep well.
The sitting room and the main bedroom are spacious and comfortable. However, the second bedroom is smaller and has little storage. The kitchen is excellent with good quality appliances and all the crockery, cutlery and cookware we needed. There were a few nice touches like the fact that some basic commodities were provided. The flat is situated in a quiet street within walking distance to the city centre and although there are charges for parking on the street, there is free parking available only a few streets away.
What a delight to stay in such luxurious accommodation that was even better that the pics. The owner was most accommodating for early access. The flat was modern, very clean, spacious and very comfortable for me, my husband and 2 grown children staying in Edinburgh for a few days. Everything had been thought of even down to an information folder of restaurants, places of interest, taxi's etc. We usually stay in a hotel but would definitely stay here again and have told friends also - cannot wait to come back. Thank you

From the clean and modern design, generous space, location, to early access when we arrived it was the best place we could have possibly chosen in Edinburgh. I travel for a living booking accommodations for clients around the world. My reputation is based on my being very discerning. We plan on returning to the Claremont Crescent!

This apartment is stunning with all your mod cons. A group of us stayed and were very comfortable. The apartment is super clean and finished to high a standard. I wouldn't want to sleep anyone than 5 adults in the apartment. It's a short walk into town and places to eat are nearby. Taxis cost about £6 into the centre of Edinburgh. I would stay again.
