Cozy, well equipped and perfectly situated
First and foremost: Ross is a wonderful host, even by Scottish standards.
The flat is perfectly located (we actually watched the Hogmanay torchlight procession through the living room windows), the bathroom is plentifully equipped, the couch and bed are super comfy and the neighbourhood was fairly quiet.
Being a city flat, a few areas are a bit on the tight side of things but other than that, everything was splendid.
Many thanks, Ross!
Ideal location, great host and great flat
Ross is a very helpful and considerate host and the perfect location - highly recommend!
Definitely a 5-star accommodation
The property was perfect, size, location, access to local grocery and right on the Royal Mile central to all our booked tour commitments
Host was very courteous and went above and beyond, cheers and thanks to Ross
Have to mention the awkward stair access to anyone with disabilities other than that it’s a 10 out of 10
Location, Location, Location
Ross's apartment is located right in the middle of action in Old Town Edinburgh. The Queen's palace, Scottish Parliament and the castle are within walking distance. Buses and Taxis are readily available for those with difficulty walking. It is a small apartment with room for 2 only and it is challenging getting up the stairs to the first floor apartment if you are handicapped, but for the fit and young looking for a place to stay it is a great value. Ross welcomed us into the place and when we had difficulty with the operation of his TV he responded quickly to our queries.
Absolutely lovely to make your acquaintance Brooks/Cynthia..Thanks for looking after the place so well and for leaving the converters..Your always welcome back!.Thanks again..Ross
Great Location, Okay accommodations
We spent two nights in this apartment, and while the location is ideal if you want to be in the heart of the Old Town, it lacked the comfort and appeal that we prefer.
PROS: comfy bed and pillows; large bath towels; TV and wifi worked without issue; great location - a couple minutes walk to main attractions like Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile, etc.; owner was pleasant in communications and receptive to suggestions for future renters.
Things we didn't care for:
pretty loud/noisy during all hours of the day and night, but the owner did provide ear plugs which we slept in both nights. The owner lives in the apartment when it's not rented - we didn't know this when we reserved this place, but in communication with him he said he'd update the listing to include that information. There were no instructions for how to use the laundry, oven, or other appliances in the house which would have been helpful. Again, the owner said he'd include info going forward for other guests. Overall condition and cleanliness of the place was just okay.
Great home base in the city.
Easy to get around, convenient to major sites, restaurants and local shopping.
