I absolutely loved the apartment. It is well furnished, big bright kitchen, perfect location for accessing local sights. Easy walk to the train station. I stayed 2 weeks, and could have easily stayed longer. Would definitely stay there again.

Loved staying in the Cordiner's Land apartment. It was comfortable, roomy, and in the perfect location for being able to tour around the city easily. VRS was easy to communicate with and was very helpful in finding us a location that would work for our dates and needs.

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and we hope that you're settling in well to your long-term let in Edinburgh. Wishing you a great time in Edinburgh! Martin, Vacation Rentals Scotland

A lovely comfortable large apartment on the fourth floor, which has to be considered if travelling with young children or the older generation. My only issue was the expensive car parking as there is no parking at the Apartment.

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Parking in the centre of Edinburgh is quite difficult and, as you point out, the multistorey car parks are quite expensive. Because most sights are within walking distance of our city-centre properties, we recommend that if guests can arrive by train or plane, then this is preferrable. We also have some...

About the neighbourhood
This apartment is an ideal base from which to explore the city. The Old Town is on your doorstep: a warren of closes and side streets lead from the Grassmarket to the Royal Mile. The Edinburgh College of Art is just around the corner from the apartment.

The apartment is situated in Cordiner’s Land (‘land’ is a Scots word for a tenement building) in the West Port, a few metres from the Grassmarket, in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old Town. There have been buildings on this site for centuries, and the current architecture dates back to 1887, though it has been modernized and renovated much more recently. This history is marked in the decorative plaques on the front of the building. Cordiners were leatherworkers, particularly shoemakers. Cordiner comes from the French cordon...
