Edinburgh Gem

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in an excellent location especially during the fringe festival. It can be noisy at night but with the bedrooms in the back it was not an issue. Shahid was terrific answering all questions and helping us store our luggage. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. I would rent it again and recommend it to family and/or friends if they were going to visit Edinburgh.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment during the Edinburgh Fringe and it was great to feel in the middle of the action, with so many venues right on our doorstep, and a view of the Royal Mile and some of the street shows from the lounge and breakfast area. The bedrooms are at the back of the property and are very quiet, so we felt we had the best of both worlds by staying here.

The apartment is spacious (we were with four adults), clean, nicely decorated, and felt like a home from home. Highly recommended and we would certainly stay here again.

Excellent location, very nice appartment

  • 5 of 5

Location is superb, just by the Royal Mile. Apartment is in an old house, well maintained and comfortable. Highly recommended if you wish to be in the middle of everything and have a short walk to major sights in Edinburgh. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Correspondence with Shahid was prompt and all information was accurate. Never before experienced so quick return of the security deposit - we hardly reached the railway station when the deposit was returned. Thank you very much, Shahid!

Terrific location for those who want to jump into Old Edinburgh

  • 4 of 5

Owner was excellent with email responsiveness. Easy-ish walking access from Waverly train station. Stairway to second floor in this historical block is a tight spiral stone staircase that will challenge those with mobility issues (and / or heavy luggage). Apartment was in great shape on arrival. Three bedrooms ...one master size and two others slightly smaller. One bathroom with bathtub/shower. All bedrooms at rear which is great cause the Royal Mile is a very busy & noisy centre of action ! Expect street noise in the front sitting room from 7am to past midnight. Nothing terrible, just part of the experience staying right on the Mile. We would stay again (tho not in festival season).

Great location! In the middle of the Royal Mile

  • 5 of 5

What a great apartment, centrally located and offering all the amenities that my family needed. We were so pleasantly surprised how quiet the apartment and the bedrooms were for being in the middle of the Royal Mile. Highly recommend this apartment if you want the experience of old town and where everything is within walking distance.
