Excellent city location perfect for a couple wanting to walk or take public transit to anything.

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very well finished and furnished with everything in great working order. Instruction manuals for all the appliances really helped. We were able to walk to all of downtown Edinburgh's attractions and easily take either the bus (HRM Britannia, Rosslyn Chapel) or train (Glasgow, St. Andrews) to others. Grocery across the street. Restaurants everywhere. Royal Mile can be seen from the window. Be prepared for some typical urban aspects (graffiti on the entrance door, street noise at night, a common stair well that is not very clean) and your stay will be as enjoyable as ours.

Exceptional location

  • 5 of 5

You really can't get a better location to stay in Edinburgh. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and well equipped. The shower is fabulous. The decor is a bit quirky but that just adds to the appeal. Having guide books, Netflix and a number of interesting books available makes staying in a pleasure. We had occasion to call the owners and their response was immediate and helpful.

A few annoyances included the couch which is not all that comfortable but tolerable and the noise from outside is cause to make sure you bring ear plugs. Saturday night provides loud partiers and emergency sirens which were no problem once we used ear plugs. I guess one can expect the noise if you stay in that perfect location.

The one thing that was not mentioned, or at least we failed to see was that this unit is on the third floor, or by North American standards, the fourth floor and it has no elevator. Carrying our 45 lb suitcases and our carry-on up the spiral staircase was certainly a challenge for us older folks. Not an impossible task but can be a concern for some.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, and as I explained there was an issue getting hold of you before arrival. It's a shame you have given 3 stars given this is a truly beautiful apartment and in a perfect location which only ever receives 5 star reviews. I'm therefore very surprised by your comments as the issue was resolved within 30 mins which is very prompt indeed and no one else has had any issues at all.
