Absolutely worst traveling experience! Flat with a view was actually a basement flat! STAY AWAY!

  • 1 of 5

Property owner double booked our booking and I was not made aware until we were out in the middle of the city with our luggage. There is nothing worse than not knowing where to go on your first night in a foreign city. We were offered another place outside the city center and the place was simply disgusting. Shower had mildew in the tile. Bed sheets were dirty. Couch had cat hair. Flat was in the basement. It was simply awful. Owner claims that double booking was "on accident" but they actually have the property in another site where people can "automatically" book. I had booked this property months in advance so there is no reason for this to have been available at another site. Simply irresponsible. I asked for a refund but never heard back. Save yourselves the headache and just book another property instead.

Really enjoyed staying at this great flat. Its front door is right on the Royalmile and a short walk to the castle. I would definitely stay here again!

Not ready for prime time.

  • 2 of 5

The "flat with a view" was unavailable. Had a basement level flat on the West End. Location was good. Flat not so great.

Fantastic view

it was an adorable flat at the top of the royal mile with a great view of the military tattoo from above. We loved having breakfast by the window and looking down on the people below. very gracious host!

Great property, great location and friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

The property is well located, a great size and very clean. I would definitely stay at the property again, particularly during the Fringe Festival as the location and atmosphere around the property is fantastic. The facilities are pretty modern and we'll looked after and the owners have kindly left the basics in the apartment, so it was possible to have a cup of tea on arrival!

Although I didn't get chance to meet the owners, they were helpful from booking up until arrival, keeping in contact via email and texts.

Great location & Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

This location is right on the Miracle Mile and has everything you need. The owners are responsive and have made sure the flat has everything you could need.

It was easy to check in late and check out.

We had a great time and this was a great home base.
