Mostly very good. Shower poor.

  • 4 of 5

The apt was clean and had WiFi and TV. The kitchen was adequate. The only drawback was the poor shower with irregular hot water and a control knob that was difficult to manage. The apt is well located to reach Old Town and the Fringe Festival.

Does the job perfectly

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment, just what is required for a city break. Edinburgh is a great city to visit - but there is also so much more to Scotland, a trip to the Highlands is a must

#2 Northumberland St

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay was very nice. The flat is well located, in a good part of town, and very comfortable for the two of us. Francois was accessible and helpful.

On the negative side, the shower was difficult to use because of the intermittent hot/cold water and the floor was very slippery and needed a mat. We counted on a dryer, as advertised and it was not working. The freezer handle comes off easily and when we left it off, everything in the refrigerator was frozen the next morning. Finally, the oven/microwave was extremely difficult to use and Francois was not able to explain how to operate. Not user-friendly at all.

We enjoyed the neighborhood and would most likely return when we visit Edinburgh again.

Owner's Response: Yes I am sorry about the lack of a dryer. It had previously been repaired but then failed again so we were advised to buy a replacement machine. This has now been installed so full washing and drying facilities are restored. As for the hot water if the shower is on full power the hot water heating element is unable to maintain the temperature so it stops heating for a few seconds to reset itself. One combats this by turning the flow of water down a fraction and then it is able to maintain production of hot water.

Great flat with everything we needed. The location is great for exploring beautiful Edinburgh.

  • 4 of 5

The apartments location makes it easy to walk to the city’s most interesting sights. We walked to Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, Old Town, and the Royal Mile fairly easily. If you’re an active person in general, this a nice option as there’s no need to catch a bus or cab to see those sights. Good coffee, a good pub, and a small supermarket are within 2 minutes on foot. The apartment itself was modern, clean, and well cared for. Francois was very helpful and quick to respond to emails. A great experience overall, I hope to return to Edinburgh some day and would definitely stay here again.

Perfect cosy base for our Edinburgh exploration

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor apartment is perfectly situated for exploring Edinburgh on foot. Fifteen minutes stroll from Princes street, the shops, Waverley station and old town. We also walked from here to Leith in about 35 minutes so it's pretty central wherever you want to go and there are a number of small restaurants and bars nearby to nip to in the evening, as well as a small supermarket three minutes away should you wish, which was really handy.

The apartment itself is cosy and small, with easily room for two without each getting under the other's feet. It has all modern amenities including Wi-Fi and the owner, Francois who met us on our arrival, was extremely helpful, especially with our early arrival time and later departure.

Although we'd seen some of the other reviews about lack of heat and issues with the shower we had none at all. The flat was always warm (outside it was 1 degree or colder) and, once mastered, the shower was hot and constant. The bedroom area, although part of the flat, felt nicely separate from the living area while the bed was very comfortable and ensured a good nights sleep.

Overall, we had a lovely long weekend, and the apartment was the perfect base to walk out from in the morning and come back to in the evening after a long day. Our only, really pernickety, gripe was the lack of a teapot, but i think that says more about our age than the flat itself.
