About Sante Borghese

I'm an Italian, working for years in the hospitality industry, moved in Edinburgh in the since the 2007. After being traveling and working between Italy-Europe and USA, I've found my peace of mind in Edinburgh since It is a city with everything a city can offer, but at the same time It's quite and livable like a small town.

Lots of green, very pedestrian friendly, easy to access everywhere.

Sante Borghese purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Sante Borghese chose Broughton

It is a great single bedroom apartment, just newly refurbished, in an excellent location, in a private a quite cull de sac area, just off LEITH WALK,one of the main arteries of Edinburgh.

Everything is walking distance from good Ethnic restaurants to groceries and amenities. A lovely well maintained garden makes you feel as you are in a countryside while you are in a city Centre.

Nice flat, good value. For us, location not ideal

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is just as described--clean, spacious, comfortable, and well furnished. We did not meet Sante, but all his communications were clear, prompt and helpful. Carmela met us upon our arrival and showed us around. She was friendly and welcoming and answered our questions and gave us recommendations for restaurants, groceries, and so on.

Our only reservation was the location: as two female visitors, we did not feel particularly safe outside after dark. We did feel safe in the apartment and outside during the day. In addition, it was a solid 30-35 minute walk along a busy, noisy boulevard to the Royal Mile, museums, and other attractions, which was farther than we'd expected based on the property description. Buses and cabs are available, it's mainly an issue if you want to be able to walk and be in Edinburgh proper. This is Leith and not the old World charm Edinburgh is known for. The Leith neighborhood is up and coming, but still seemed sketchy to us. For example, we encountered 2 men involved in an illegal deal in a parking lot just around the corner of the apartment. They did not threaten us, but we were uncomfortable encountering them.

But overall, the flat worked well for us. Pluses were Carmela and Sante, the quality of the flat for the price (a good value), and the many good restaurants nearby. The negatives were the distance of the flat from historic Edinburgh (solid 30-35 minutes for fast walkers) and what we experienced as the somewhat unsafe feel of the Leith neighborhood that's still emerging from its rough past.

Owner's Response: Good evening, and thank you very much for your positive and constructive feedback. WE always aim to make your staying as comfortable and cozy as you were home. I'm sorry that the neighborhood did not meet your expectation, I can guarantee that if some illegal activities is been witnesses, I will personally inform the authorities to start an investigation. The property as described in the web site is 15/20 minutes walking distance from Waverley station on the west end of Princess street. The OLD Edinburgh is further 10 minutes away from there. Hope this did not spoil your staying and hope you will recommend our property to your friends and relatives. Kindest regards Sante & Carmela

nice clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a thoroughly nice stay only 20 mins walk to the centre of edinburgh.

The owner gave great communication prior to arrival and showed us around on arrival then left us alone to enjoy our stay.

The apartment was clean, tidy, smelled lovely and had a well equipped kitchen.

Our only negative (and its hardly a negative) it that the bath towels are slowly slightly small and it would have been nice to have access to a spare pillow for the bed.

Have already recommended to others and this would certainly be our first place to look to book if coming to the area again

Comfortable ,Clean and welcoming host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and had all the comforts of home including a selection of DVD s. Location was great and the buses to central Edinburgh ran every 2 minutes at £3.50 for a day ticket. You can walk if you wish approx 20 mins. Our host was very informative and advised us about bus services and local shopping. The Castle and Zoo were great to visit and if we had more time we would have loved to have visited the royal yacht...and shopping/food well what can I say fabulous. Thank you so much for a lovely stay in your apartment. We would recommend this apartment to any of our friends going to Edinburgh as well as work colleagues who need to stay in the area.

Very Nice Comfortable Apartment/Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment which was clean, well stocked, comfortable and perfectly sized for our family of four. The bed was very comfortable and the gas fireplace came in handy as it was a cold and rainy Edinburgh stay. We didn't use the kitchen much since our stay was only 2 days but it had everything you could need. We also didn't use the patio because of the rain but for nice weather it would be lovely. We also felt very safe in the neighborhood.

One of things that can make or break a stay are the owners. Sante and his wife are fantastic. I got horribly lost, driving around at night, and they were so patient with us and helpful even though we were 4 hours late. I highly recommend this apartment.
