Beautiful flat in heart of Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

This flat is right on the Royal Mile ... the street with most of Edinburgh's shops and restaurants and the street leading directly to Edinburgh Castle. Our family loved it! It had plenty of room for all five of us. It was lovely, clean, and welcoming.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Marion was a wonderful host. We arrived early and she allowed us to leave our bags with her until the apartment was ready. This apartment is right on the Royal Mile, walking distance to numerous restaurants, dozens of shops and major tourist attractions.

very quiet, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 adult daughters. Our hosts were very responsive and helpful. The location was perfect for doing everything we wanted to do. Walking distance to everything. We were able to very conveniently run back to the apartment to add or drop off jackets based on the ever changing Scottish weather. It was also very quiet due to the bedrooms being on the park side of the building. I would absolutely recommend it!

Right in the heart of the Royal Mile and a 7 minute walk from the Waverly Train station. Security gate at street level into building up 3 small flights, no lift , important to know if you needed a lift for elderly or assistance otherwise no problem and you enter a spotless well appointed flat. Everything works. We used the refrigerator and freezer and washing machine dryer....hanging line in kitchen which worked fine. Beds and linen and pillows were fresh clean and super comfortable. I can't say enough about this flat. Marion was gracious and on time when we got there gave info if we needed but what I loved the most was the Location

Walk out take a left there's a crepe place for breakfast next to pastry shop across from a cafe and down the street is pubs shops churches architecture and at the end one mile away the Castle and the Scotch Whiskey Experience both highly recommended. If I ever do make it back hopefully one day to the Fringe Festival I will be sure to book well in advance here. Only used wifi for phone not laptops or surfing so had no issues. We had 3 adults here and were very comfortable and each own bed. I know it's on the Mile but the rooms are in the back over a courtyard so traffic and noise wasn't an issue at all. Then again it was after the Festival. I highly recommend and perfect for families and friends who all want to stay together in a fun central place where you are able to walk pretty much anywhere and can trust when you get back to the flat you can cook or drink or relax anytime you want and not be at the mercy of things being too late or not open Tailor made for that.

Perfect flat - perfect location - perfect host

  • 5 of 5

Marion was the perfect host. She was extremely communicative prior to our arrival, and after we occupied the flat. She gave us wonderful suggestions and was extremely timely with her responses. We did not know it at the time, but we were there when the Fringe Festival was occurring. We were far enough from the craziness, but close enough to walk right into the middle of all of the festivities. Do understand that there is no elevator, and the flat is on the third floor. The unit is extremely well appointed with all of the comforts of home. It had a washer dryer, a very nicely appointed kitchen, a television and Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi was a little bit spotty, but quite frankly, we did not spend enough time to warrant complaining about it. If we ever were to come back to Edinburgh, this is certainly the place we would stay. It gets my highest recommendation. If you have to store bags prior to or after staying at the flat, there is a City Stasher location about two blocks away from the unit. Marion told us about that as well, and it fit our needs exactly.
