Shahid Raza purchased this apartment in 2015
Its gorgeous, central and very large right on the Royal Mile and 5 mins walk to The Castle.
Sit by the window and watch the locals and holidaymakers walk by, singing and performing in the street shows
Very central, postcode is EH1
Shahid was very helpful and friendly and this was the second time we have stayed in one of his properties. It was comfortable and clean. Excellent location for all attractions, restaurants and bars. Ideally placed for Christmas shopping and soaking up the festive atmosphere.
Good communication from the owner prior to our stay (it was our first time using HomeAway). Lovely flat that slept the 4 of us comfortably (could easily have slept 5). Ideal location for exploring the old town. Would definitely stay again.
This apartment was in a great location for all attractions and the railway station. It was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The owners were very prompt with emails and answered any questions we had.
Perhaps the spiral staircase should be mentioned in the description, rather than just "wheelchair inaccessible."
We had a lovely stay, but I would describe the bathroom and kitchen as looking 'tired'.
We loved it. It was an experience I'll never forget, to climb the stone steps and look down on the Royal Mile in front, and the courtyard of the close from the back, with the wide window seats and bagpipes playing....doesn't get better than that.
Great location on the Main Street, only a 5-10 min walk to Edinburg Castle. Accommodations were nice but nothing special. Having a washer/dryer was very convenient as this was the mid way of our trip and so allowed us to freshen up. Property was ready when we arrived and keys right outside in the lock box. This was very nice so here was no need to meet up with anyone. The only word of caution would be to those who might have trouble navigating the tight spiral staircase up to the second floor apartment. Otherwise would recommend to those looking for a clean and comfortable apartment right in the middle of all the main sights and walking distance to the train station.
Location, location, location - if the location is good, everything else seems to matter less. This appartment has an exellent location on the High Street (Royal Mile) of Edinburgh leading up to the famous castle. Sitting at the breakfast table you have the best view for 'people watching' as the high street is buzzing. 5 mins walk down stepped alleyways, or 10mins along the road, and your at Waverly central station.
The two spacious bedrooms are at the back of the building, so there is no disturbance to a good nights sleep. The small third (box)bedroom doesn't have a window, but by simply leaving the door open and a window at the front of the appartment there's sufficient air circulation.
Access is via a spiral staircase which gives the feeling of climbing into a medieval turret. Fun, but not suitable for wheelchairs or those needing a lift.
Decor is simple but sufficient and everything you need is present. Not a new build so not 100% spotless or 'contemporary', but clean and spacious enough.
The owner is friendly, checking that we arrived OK and asking if there were any problems or questions. When the electric cut out one day he was quick to answer and help solve the problem (there was a temporary powercut in the whole building caused by the service providers).
We were in Edinburgh for work and conference. Colleagues visited several nights for dinner and were so impressed they wanted details - a good sign.
