About Sante Borghese

I'm an Italian, working for years in the hospitality industry, moved in Edinburgh 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 Edinburgh and Lothians

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.

What makes this apartment unique

A lovely well maintained garden makes you feel as you are in a countryside while you are in a city Centre.

Fantastic quiet flat with great location

  • 5 of 5

Home was beautiful but a little colder then we would have liked. The shower was quite a big step to get into and it wasn't very warm but fine for its purpose. All in all it was a fantastic trip and we would stay here again.

Ideal!

  • 5 of 5

Before booking 7/1 New Orchardfield I did my research, so I knew the property would be ok for us. However, it was MUCH better than I expected.

Firstly - it's described as 'quiet'. On driving in, we thought it couldn't possibly be 'quiet' as it's in a block of several similar blocks, all with 7 other flats in them. We were wrong - it was quiet and very peaceful, with ample easy parking directly outside. (Not to mention a Majestic Wine on the corner!)

Leith Walk is an excellent location. Turn right up the road from the apartment and within 30 minutes you're on Princes Street. It's an easy and very pleasant walk, but if it get too much and you need a break, try the Conan Doyle pub on the right hand side. If you leave the apartment and turn left down Leith Walk, you're minutes away from a Tesco, Lidl, Boots, Wetherspoons, Superdrug - and the ubiquitous pound shop, all confined in a neat little shopping area.

We walked to Portobello Beach on a really warm, windless and sunny day. It took about an hour, and a reviving lunch in the Espy was gorgeous. We also walked to the Royal Yacht Britannia (took about 30 minutes) and spent an interesting couple of hours wandering around a little piece of British Royal history.

7/1 New Orchardfield was a warm and welcoming home from home; very safe & secure, with a large bedroom, good sized living room, good quality appliances and ample hot water to soothe away the aches and pains of walking around the wonderful city and its surrounding areas for hours. Did I mention there's a jacuzzi bath? That was heaven; the other half used it more than I did! Also, the shower was one of the easiest I've ever used. In addition, we were supplied with 2 sets of towels, which was nice.

If I had to give any negatives, I'd have liked better quality kitchen knives and a wider range of cooking dishes, also bath sheets rather than towels would have been good - but truly, I'm nitpicking here.

It was a perfect base for us and somewhere we would both return to and recommend to friends.

Thanks to Carmela for being so nice even though we arrived hours ahead of shedule and she wasn't expecting us! She gave us the keys and we wandered off to start what was a wonderful week in Edinburgh. I'm sure we'll back, and I know where we'll stay.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property. It had everything that we needed and was located near restaurants, shops and taverns. Also very convenient to the bus line. We missed our connecting flight from the U.S. and Sante was kind enough to meet us at a VERY late hour. We would definitely recommend this property. The only issue that we had was with the bed, which was overly firm for our tastes. But it would be fine for others who prefer a harder mattress.

Beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Just off Leith walk it is a short taxi ride to get to Princess street. The apartment is Beautifully kept and very tastefully decorated. The owner was very accomodating and made sure to show us everything we needed to know about the apartment. My mom and I felt very comfortable and at ease there. Lots of convenient shops around to get food for your stay. I would definitely recommend this place and the price is phenominal.

Lovely property with easy access to City Centre

  • 5 of 5

Great property -was exactly as descriptions, and actually the photos don't do it justice. its very spacious, very clean and homely. Sante was very welcoming, and went the extra mile letting us check in early and leave our car parked all day after we had checked out. Its in a great location - you can get a bus into the City Centre, but we walked every time as its really easy along one straight road.

would highly recommend.
