Outstanding location! Great price! Comfy apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our three night stay and loved the location on Rose Street. Restaurants, shopping and public transportation at your fingertips. We never met Francois in person, but he was very reachable and helpful in finding our way there and helping to understand the the mechanics of the washer/dryer and answering any other questions we had. Although the bedroom was smallish, there was only room to walk on one side of the bed, it was very comfortable. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Absolutely lovely place in the heart of Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We so loved our 3 night stay in Francois's great apartment. So very comfortable and roomy. I loved everything about his place. He has gone out of his way to make this an inviting and warm environment. The kitchen is top notch that includes a washer/tumbler.

He was in contact with us promptly and popped in to show us the details.

Walking distance to shops, dining and sightseeing.

I would definitely stay here again. I wish we had stayed longer.

Wonderful accommodations near everything we wanted to visit.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay. Francois provided a cot for our 2 year old which made our stay much more comfortable. The location was great within walking distance to great restaurants and pubs. We also walked to the Royal Mile and hiked Arthur’s seat both about 1-1.5 miles away.

Location perfect! Everything we hoped for.

  • 4 of 5

Edinburgh was an amazing city to visit! This flat was a vital part of our trips sucess😃 it is located on a pedestrian street easy walking distance from the Waverly train station. Plenty of pubs, bars and restaurants around. The flat was equipped with everything we needed. Super WiFi, plenty of hot water, great shower pressure and was just right for my daughter and I. The pull out couch bed was okay to sleep on. Our only hiccup was that we bought the wrong soap for the washing machine and ruined a load of laundry (don’t buy the pods stick with powder) I would absolutely stay here again if I ever get back to Edinburgh ♥️

Great location on Rose Street

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice apartment directly on the Rose "pub street" that runs parallel between Princes and George streets. An easy walk to both bus and train stations. And just walk across one of the bridges and one can quickly access the Royal Mile. Although compact, it has everything one needs for a "home away from home." Fully equipped kitchen, modern bathroom. The living room can be secluded off if one is sleeping on pull-out couch.

Sometimes when the pubs close, one can hear a bit of street noise. But overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. It's a great way to relax in more spacious surroundings than one can in a small hotel room without full kitchen facilities to help make eating a bit more economical. Francois was extremely responsive while booking and settling in. Just super.

Well fitted apartment in the heart of New Town. Close to everything: castle, pubs, restaurants, tour buses and airport tram. We have used Homeaway in many European and UK locations and found the owner of this apartment, Francois, to be excellent to work with. Highly recommend.

Car: not necessary

The flat is located on Rose Street which runs parallel to both Princes Street and George Street making it a superb base from which to explore the city. You are just a 10 minute walk from Waverley Station on Princes Street so it's easy to arrive by train into the city. A host of shops, bars and restaurants are right on your doorstep so much so the only problem you'll have is trying to decide where to go and how to fit it in during your stay.

Other Activities: Shopping and dining out
