Wonderful flat in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this property. It was cozy yet comfortable, convenient, and clean. I can be very picky about cleanliness and this place totally met my standards. The sheets and towels were obviously fresh and laundered. There was plenty of places for food and refreshments close by and the castle and Royal mile were within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Great Flat on Quiet Street

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed in this well equipped 2 BR/2 bath flat equipped with all the amenities we needed including washing machine. Good internet/Cable TV. Comfortable and clean in a nice, quiet section of town. Two blocks to bus/tram and 20 minute walk to Old Town. Nice restaurants close by including Luke & Co for breakfast sandwich/coffee/scones, etc. a few doors away (owners very nice/helpful). Couple of pubs at end of block. Restaurants we tried/enjoyed down the block Forage & Chatter and a few blocks away Otro. Also have to mention Strumpets a small coffee place a bit pricey but worth trying. All in all a very nice experience.

Fantastic city centre flat. Peaceful and charming.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in is in the perfect location for exploring Edinburgh. It’s in a charming quiet street a few minutes from the bustle of shops, restaurants, transport etc. The flat is immaculate, very well equipped with extremely comfortable beds, good pillows and nice bedlinen. Two excellent bathrooms, lots of hot water, high ceilings, well-stocked kitchen and all the rooms are flooded with light from the beautiful tall Georgian sash windows.

We have stayed in many apartments in the city’s new town and this was the best so far. We will be back!

Fabulous 2 bed/2 bathroom apartment in the West End area of Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this lovely apartment during the Fringe this August. It was perfectly situated within easy reach of the main shopping areas and restaurants. It was a short/bus ride to reach all of the Fringe venues and the apartment was an ideal place to re-charge the batteries.

Light, airy and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! Close to everything but off the main street. Living room was bright and comfortable and the bathrooms were clean and bright. Rooms were nice, linens good, but no where to hang anything, anywhere. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hello Janet, Thank you so much for your kind comments. I am really sorry you didn’t find the closet with hangers provided in the hallway. We also have hooks on the backs of the bedroom and bathroom doors for extra things to hang up. We hope to see you again soon! Best wishes, Louisa
