Amazing stay in Edinburgh!

  • 5 out of 5
It was our first time in Edinburgh, and we would highly recommend this property. The apartment was perfect- quiet and clean, with the most comfortable bed! The best feature is that it's conveniently located with Tesco express and cashpoint downstairs. It's within 5-10 minute walk to all city attractions. David was super helpful and very prompt with any inquiries via email/phone. Would definitely visit again!

Perfect in Picardy

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment was perfect for the two of us, plus our large cases. It was nicely presented and very clean. Cosy comfortable and quiet, with a great view from the window. We found everything in the apartment was sufficient for our stay. Fantastic eating places nearby in Broughton Street. Supermarket and ATM located next door to the apartment. Our communication with the owner was prompt and very helpful. Would highly recommend the Wee Apartment; it's in a fantastic location.

Lovely apartment - Superb location

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our Edinburgh holiday. The owner is really polite and we had a great communication. The apartment was really nice and warm. Comfortable, with modern furniture, useful facilities and superb location. Clean and Just like as it looks on the photos. We walked everywhere without using any transportation. Supermarket and bank in the same building. Best breakfast/lunch spots of Edinburgh (Broughton Deli, Valvonna & Crolla, Urban Angel) just a few minutes walking distance. Safe at night. WiFi would be much appreciated though. But in general we were really happy to stay there. You will not regret it. I highly recommend it.

George.

Great apartment

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed here for 7 nights. Apartment was good sizes for two and well maintained. Location was great just 10 minutes from train station and the sights. Owner was very helpfull and friendly. Tesco and a pub down stairs (little noise but not too much). Good breakfast place across the street; pub Conan Doyle. Great view over the ceilings. Very comfortable bed.

Good for couples.
Would go there again!

Exactly as described

  • 5 out of 5
Just got back from my stay in the wee apartment. The place is small, exactly as described, about the size of a decent hotel room with a compact bathroom which has a Mira shower unit. Shower gel, shampoo and great towels all provided.

Bed, large and very comfortable with quality bedding. There is a small TV/DVD combo on the wall and a selection of DVDs, CDs and books. Tea and coffee supplied, tiny kitchen unit which does the job a a small table with two chairs.

The place is nicely decorated, clean and well maintained, could not fault it.

Please be aware that you are very close to the centre of the city, there is a good pub across the road and some bars and food outlets very close by, so there is noise despite being at the back of the building. There was also some noise from other residents on one evening, earplugs are recommended.

I had a great weekend, David was very helpful throughout and I would recommend the apartment to friends and relatives.
