Great stay in Edinburgh !

  • 5 of 5

We had a very pleasant stay in this apartment located in a quiet aera of Edinburgh. The apartment is convenient for large numbers of persons as you can sleep till 8 ! Very high ceiling and nice chimneys in the lounge and rooms.

You got 2 supermarkets close to the apartment and plenty of restaurants going on Dundas Street.

The apartment is also fully furnished to do your own cooking.

There is also a Bus stop just around the corner of the street to drive you to the main sites of the city.

If you need any help, françois will be there to work things out.

I will definetly recommand this apartment.

Great stay in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We were group of 9 people (4 adults and 5 kids). The apartment was excellent choice for our purpose. Great neighborhood, walking distance to old town, all infrastructure at the doorstep (groceries shop, bus stations, restaurants, shopping,...).

Apartment was clean, worm and included every gadget you might need for confortable leaving. It's also extremely spacious which was great for 9 people.

When we come back to Edinburgh we will definitely try to book this apartment!

We strongly recomend for big families.

Cheers, Zoran

Great for a big group and short stay!

  • 4 of 5

Great location right in the middle of New Town, 15 mins to the train station and 20 mins walking to old town. The apartment has tons of space which was great for our group of 6, but furnishings are basic. We also had some issues with the tv, but Francois helped us troubleshoot.

Quite Adequate

  • 4 of 5

This is as advertised and suited our needs just fine. My wife and I with our two children used the apartment as a base to explore Scotland. We rented for 11 days but were traveling elsewhere for five of those days. The shower is very small (less than 3 ft x 3 ft). There is a washing machine which we used a lot but no dryer. Everything functioned and we didn't have any issues. I'm giving a 4 star instead of a 5 because while it was quite adequate, clean and suited our needs, a little investment in things like a larger shower, functioning door latches, usable closets, a little better furniture, some fans, etc would go a long way. Still, if you're looking for a space for your family to spread out in and don't mind climbing stairs to the 3rd floor, this is the place and it is priced accordingly.

Great stay in Edinburgh!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent Christmas in this beautiful apartment in Edinburgh. The place was clean, well-appointed and in a great neighborhood. Francois, the owner, is also very helpful and responsive.

The apartment is located 5-10 minutes walk of the most famous tourist attractions.

We loved our stay in Edinburgh and would definitely come back to this lovely apartment.

Family Appartment

  • 2 of 5

potentially a great apartment: central,close to bus routes and essential shops,well appointed, ideal for a large family stay - everything going for it.BUT our stay was spoilt by too much going wrong: the hot water/heating system was not reliable and ultimately broke down completely.(Cold showers on the morning of a family wedding are not funny-) The communication with the street door (from the top floor - 50 stairs up) did not work - so when someone came we had to go down and up every time - several times a day. The inventory of kitchen equipment had not been done accurately. A bedside light did not work. All this suggests that the place had not been checked properly before our arrival. Very disappointing. And added to that, the owner had been very difficult to contact before our arrival: very few emails had been answered.

Owner's Response: It is fair to say that the boiler was a serious headache! After your departure we had to re-house two other bookings because there was a serious fault with the boiler and subsequently it took over a week to repair. It is quite a new boiler, being less than 4 years old, so both engineers who attended were surprised that we were experiencing problems especially as this particular model is known for its reliability! Once you reported the problem we did attend to it immediately and arranged for an engineer to visit. He thought it was down to a loss of pressure so he topped up the system and it was working fine. A few days later when the problem was reported again I went straight round and there was no pressure in the system so I topped it up and once again it started to work. Each time a problem was reported it was acted upon immediately. In my experience problems with central heating systems can manifest themselves at any point so it is very difficult to predict when something will fail. Usually when it does go wrong it can be repaired quite quickly, unfortunately in this case it could not be and for that I am sorry but I am not sure what more we could have done. Unfortunately it is not possible for me to check and test all the equipment in the property, and anything relating to the building as a whole, but I do ask my cleaner to try and report any breakages/problems that she comes across. If guests report anything then it can be acted upon immediately so when you informed me that some crockery was missing I said that I could deliver anything that was required straight round but you said it was not necessary. I don't recall the door entry system being mentioned because if it had been then we could have sent someone round to look at it. As for the lamp, this too can be resolved very easily once reported as I carry a selection of spare light bulbs in my car for exactly this situation. In fact we also have a spare lamp in the store cupboard so this also could have been used. I am very sorry that you did not fully enjoy your stay. A seriously troublesome boiler was compounded by a couple of other issues which could have been rectified quite easily had we known about them during your stay.
