Super location and friendly owner. Nothing at all negative to say.
Loved all the extra touches - homemade jam, eggs etc.
Llocation was fantastic!
A warm welcome from Eve on arrival. Everything had been thought of in the apartment; food in the fridge for breakfast, including fresh eggs from Eve's hens, snacks and drinks on hand as well. An ideal location for visiting Edinburgh's sites, located less than 100m from the High Street of the Royal Mile and 5 min walk from Waverley Station and Princes Street. A good sized apartment, would definitely recommend.
Also pre-booked parking for 2 days at the nearby Radisson Blu car park and saved 40% on the normal day rate.
We booked late and were fortunate to find this great little place right in Old Town, on a steep lane. but this is Edinburgh! Eve is amazing, apartment is charming, just as pictured. We would definitely stay there again for a longer stay in Edinburgh and highly recommend. Most charming place we stayed thus far in trip.
This really is a lovely apartment. The beds were very comfortable, the living space was very homely and welcoming. The kitchen was well equipped and everything was clean. Eve is an excellent host. She was waiting for us when we arrived and greeted us with a very warm welcome. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials (milk, bread, cereals, orange juice, etc.) and Eve also left lots of little treats and snacks for us. The rooms can get a bit warm at night but we found that once we opened the window for a while it was fine. We really enjoyed our stay and we hope to return in the future.
Old Fishmarket Close is the perfect area in Edinburgh if you want to be walking distance to the Royal Mile & Old Town. Shopping, dining, beautifully maintained graveyards, churches, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, Arthur's Seat... I could go on & on!
Eve's husband met us on arrival & was charming! Full of suggestions & if not for him I would have not rented a car for the day to venture up to Stonehaven.
Eve had the flat ready with breakfast foods & more chocolate than I could eat in a month!
The beds were cozy. The homemade soaps were amazing, I would order them for my home in Texas!
My only issue (& is a location issue not an owner issue):
if you are with someone that is not very stable on their feet, be careful about the walk up to and down to the flat, the hill is very steep & could be challenging for those with mobility problems.
That's it! I loved the flat and I plan on going back as soon as I can escape.
Thank you Eve!
We stayed at this flat recently (2 adults and 2 kids (12&14)). First trip to Edinburgh. Eve is a fabulous host, very clear instructions on how to get to flat, was able to be flexible on check in and out. Flat was stocked with essentials (milk, bread, eggs, drinks etc.). The flat was very clean, well ,ain't aimed. It's location is ideal for exploring the old town and Royal mile. It's very central but we were not really disturbed by outside noise as it is set back from the main High street. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
