“A good choice,best location.”
Reviewed 12 December 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Our family of four as well as a friend rented this apartment for a period of four nights. It was quite a challenge to find an apartment for five adults with two bathrooms, of a decent size in a good location. This place lived up to all of these requirements. I wanted to stay in the old part of town, but could not find anything suitable and settled for this place in the new town which is actually the newer part of a still old town! This proved to be such a good decision. Our location was so good for many practical reasons like arriving fom the airport on the Airlink Airport bus. The close proximity to Princess Street means easy access to the shopping area, Waverley Station (for car rental in our case), the Old Town, Edinbugh Castle as well as easy bus access to Murrayfield (we were there for rugby), Edinburgh Tour Buses etc. all the important attractions were within walking distance. For practical reasons alone, I will choose this area myself again in future as well as recommend it to others without hesitation.

We found the apartment to be big enough for five adults, even though one person had to sleep on a sofa in the lounge. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. It suited us perfectly, as we only ever had breakfast there. The place was spotlessly clean and basics were provided like some coffee, tea, sugar, dishwashing liquid etc. Beds and linen were of good quality. Overall we were very satisfied. The only downside maybe...we were woken on two occasions late at night from loud arguing and a drunken brawl in the street as well as by the garbage truck which comes very early in the morning! Otherwise it is a relatively area keeping in mind that you are in the middle of a city.

We stayed for 4 nights just as the Fringe was previewing. Just as it looks on the photos. Well mantained, clean and a lovely welcome. Agent contact prior to visit helpful and informative. Just off George Street, two minutes from Prince's Street and the National Galleries. Close to many of the Fringe venues if visiting in August. Excellent range of restaurants very close - including the newly opened Jamie's Italian in the Assembly Rooms on George Street.

We used the extra bed as there were 5 of us - that worked well as there is a little alcove where the bed can stay so no contant putting it away. Also quite private because of this. The exterior has been criticised but it is a entrance along a quiet street, a number of resaurants have their back entrances along the street, which led to a peaceful sleep. The garage is a real bonus as it is difficult and expensive to park in Edinburgh.
