A gorgeous, cosy apartment - highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this apartment. It was easy to find, well-presented, clean, centrally-located, big enough for two and our suitcases, and had everything we could need for our stay. We had efficient and friendly communication with the property owner/manager throughout our stay and rate them 5 stars for going the extra mile to return my phone to me which I had left in the apartment. I highly recommend you stay here while in Edinburgh! You will love it!

Perfect for a young couple!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is perfect if you are a couple and you decide to explore the city as much as you can, during the day. It was a pleasure for us to live during a week iI'll totally recommend it.

David was a good host and very quick related to e-mail's and answers.

There was no noises during the night.

The apartment was clean and we had everything we needed such as hair dryer, kitchen stuff, shampoo, tea, etc

Good location - with supermarket, pubs and cash machine down stairs. City Center 5mints walk.

I enjoyed my stay there and I would love to back again!! :)

Comfortable and clean

This apartment was just as advertised, it was small but bright and clean with a comfortable bed and an ocean view. David was very helpful and excellent to deal with.

Amazing stay in Edinburgh!

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time in Edinburgh, and we would highly recommend this property. The apartment was perfect- quiet and clean, with the most comfortable bed! The best feature is that it's conveniently located with Tesco express and cashpoint downstairs. It's within 5-10 minute walk to all city attractions. David was super helpful and very prompt with any inquiries via email/phone. Would definitely visit again!

Perfect in Picardy

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for the two of us, plus our large cases. It was nicely presented and very clean. Cosy comfortable and quiet, with a great view from the window. We found everything in the apartment was sufficient for our stay. Fantastic eating places nearby in Broughton Street. Supermarket and ATM located next door to the apartment. Our communication with the owner was prompt and very helpful. Would highly recommend the Wee Apartment; it's in a fantastic location.

Lovely apartment - Superb location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our Edinburgh holiday. The owner is really polite and we had a great communication. The apartment was really nice and warm. Comfortable, with modern furniture, useful facilities and superb location. Clean and Just like as it looks on the photos. We walked everywhere without using any transportation. Supermarket and bank in the same building. Best breakfast/lunch spots of Edinburgh (Broughton Deli, Valvonna & Crolla, Urban Angel) just a few minutes walking distance. Safe at night. WiFi would be much appreciated though. But in general we were really happy to stay there. You will not regret it. I highly recommend it.

George.
