Great Apartment, Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

An extremely stylish, spotlessly clean and well equipped apartment. Pier Luigi is a very considerate host providing local information on places to eat, visit and public transport. When we arrived we were delighted to find Pier had left us snacks, chocolates, items for a complete continental breakfast, soft drinks and even beers chilling in the fridge. The espresso machine, complete with pods, was a godsend after a full day touring Edinburgh and set us up nicely ready for the evening out! We even managed to squeeze in a few films via Pier's Netflix service on his great TV and sound system. Although the apartment isn't large it is extremely well designed and space is not an issue for two people. The location is only 15 minute walk to Princes Street and is close to a great selection of cafes and restaurants. Pier kept in touch throughout our stay to ensure we were happy with everything and provided an excellent service. We would not hesitate to stay in his lovely home again.

Compact, clean and cute!

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I stayed while looking at University. The apartment was spotless. Everything was there. The owner had left snacks and drinks for us. Cooking was no problem as all the equipment was there. The owner was helpful and responsive at all times. We had a few issues with electricity while there--and the owner responded promptly to make sure the issues were addressed.

Given the size of the place, I would not recommend it for more than two people but it was perfect for us!

The bus stop is quite close and the neighborhood was interesting to walk around. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Very comfortable and very well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

A compact, well equipped bedsit flat. The kitchen had lots of things to allow home cooking, as well as a good coffee machine. The bed was comfortable, although not especially large. Lots of little extras, such as umbrellas, washer/dryer with washing liquid supplied, clothes airer. The flat was just as it was in the photos and was very clean. Pier was very accommodating and available by phone if needed, e.g.: allowed us a late check out which helped us a lot. Location was in a very quiet street, and an easy 15min walk into the heart of Edinburgh. And on arrival, Pier had left a lovely bonus of some basics for us, (chocolates, milk, butter, bread and wine!) Would definitely recommend.

Simply amazing !

  • 5 of 5

We spent our holidays many times in Edinburgh and this flat is definitely the best place we stayed! Very quiet and cosy, well furnished, clean and modern, provided with all comforts. Central area (about 15 minutes walk to Princes Street) close to buses and tram, restaurants, pubs and cinema! Easy to reach from the airport by tram, we fully recommend this flat! A special mention to the owner, a kind, helpful and friendly person... Cheers! F&A

Genial

  • 4 of 5

Hemos pasado unos días estupendos en Edimburgo. El apartamento es tal como aparece en las fotos y es ideal para 1 o 2 personas. Aunque sea pequeño tiene de todo y no le falta detalle, hay que tener algo de cuidado al entrar en la ducha porque es estrecha y está en alto (se sube con un pequeño taburete). La casa se abre con un código exterior y no tiene pestillo por dentro, lo que a lo mejor crea algo de intranquilidad si estás acostumbrado a echar la llave, pero te acostumbras. Quizás sea una buena recomendación para el apartamento poder tener ésta opción de cerrar desde dentro. La distancia a la Old Town/Royal Mile es de unos 15-20 minutos andando. Pier Luigi es muy amable y está disponible siempre para cualquier consulta (incluso nos retrasó la hora de check out para poder guardar las maletas) . Si vienes desde el aeropuerto una buena opción es coger el Tranvía (solo hay uno) que te deja a 10 minutos de casa y cuesta 5,5 pounds. El taxi te sale por unos 25 pounds/viaje.

Hay un supermercado Tesco a la vuelta de la esquina para poder hacer la compra y tiene de todo. !Y una cafetería que nos encantó en la entrada de la calle que es estupenda para desayunar! Abre a las 10 y se llena rápido de gente (hay pocas mesas) así que no te retrases si quieres disfrutar de un típico desayuno escocés.

En definitiva, el alojamiento es una buena opción si quieres visitar Edimburgo. Nosotros hemos ido en Agosto y con el Festival Frinje la ciudad está llena de gente,- quizás demasiada si te gusta unas vacaciones más tranquilas-, pero si te gusta el teatro, la música, la danza, el circo y las pintas de cerveza como a nosotros, ésta es tu ciudad y tu mes.

Gracias Pier!
