Greyfriar's Bobby is an awesome location!! We stayed for 3 days and found it easy to get to and from in the heart of the action. The flat is well stocked for all your needs - just like being at home. Axel was prompt and made sure everything went smoothly. We walked to lots of attractions and were able to be within a block of a supermarket for food & supplies. Would definitely recommend and stay at Greyfriar's again.
Aside from a slightly sketchy entryway and shutters that don't quite keep out all the light, this is a great place to stay in Edinburgh. It's right across the street from the National Museum of Scotland (free!) and looks into the graveyard at Greyfriars Abbey. You can even go and rub Greyfriars Bobby's nose each morning as you walk down the street. The bed is large and comfortable, and the shower is one of the best we've encountered on our journey. The street is fairly quiet for a city street, even if the locals can get a tad rowdy at 3am.
We were greeted with a small welcoming basket with different kinds of chocolates and there was OJ and milk in the fridge. Axel was incredibly helpful and very timely in his email replies. I would come here again.
We spent 4 nights here at Greyfriars Bobbys Apartment. Large very clean accommodation. Plenty of space to move around. Kitchen very well equipped with as much crocery and pots and pans as anyone would need. (We did not cook any meals as we were out almost all day every day) Axel left us bread milk butter, some teabags and jar of coffee, some chocolate biscuits and all condiments we would have used if we had cooked. The location is brilliant for all the local attractions and also for tour pick up point. Would def. recommend this accommodation to anyone who needs a handy place to stay, just be careful that you are able to climb stairs as accommodation is on the 2nd floor. No problem to us as we are fit. Next time we are in Edinburgh we would look for this apt. again. Thanks Axel.
I booked this apartment for my partners birhday. Having seen good feedback. The Location of the flat is perfect for exploring the city on foot. We got a Taxi from the airport and this was £22. However we found that only a short walk away you can get the airport bus for £4.50 each and this leaves every 20mins. The flat has everything you could want and is finished to a high standard. There are some little extras that really make the difference. The bread orange juice and milk are a welcome sight if you've had a long trip. A massive thank you to Axel. Will be recomending this to anyone who askes about where to stay if they are going to Edinburgh. Would love to go back again.
