Paul was there to welcome us and a lovely touch to provide milk , juice and snacks
The apartment is in a busy street just a 2 minute walk to the castle and right next to city tour bus stop. Perfect location for the old town
Always nice and warm, very comfy and plenty of room for 4 of us staying there.
It was very quiet despite being in a busy area which was nice. The stairs up to the apartment can be tricky for some so you just need to be careful
Overall a lovely few days in a beautiful apartment
We loved this apartment on the Royal Mile. It was just as described. The bedrooms are in the back of the apartment, so very quiet.
The stairs were winding and if you want to avoid too many stairs try and book the 1st floor unit (which is actually the second floor for us Americans) - there are a few apartments in the building each the same.
The only "negative" was that we had to google how to work the stove, lol.
Wifi worked like a charm.
We felt very lucky to stay in this historic area. Paul was very responsive and provided good information. Thank you!
This beautiful apartment is located in a perfect location on the Royal Mile. This was our first trip to Edinburg so we were relying on other reviewers as to the location but we were not disappointed. Located on the Royal Mile, it is literally a minute's walk to the Castle and seconds from shopping, pubs, and restaurants. If you use the close that goes to the writer's museum, you can be on your way to New Town in minutes (sorry we didn't discover that earlier!).
The apartment is perfect for two couples or a family who need some space and privacy. It is clean, comfortable and modern. Paul was incredibly accommodating to our requests. We couldn't have asked for anything more and it made our trip even more pleasant. Yes, you DO have to climb some winding stairs to get to the apartment but pack lightly since it has a washer!
We would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking a place on the Royal Mile.
I will start with the one negative. We were a party of 4 who had been traveling for 25 days and we had 8 pieces of luggage....okay, I know we don't travel light! There were 36 slanted/stone steps to climb with luggage and only 18 of them had a handrail. Glad that we had hubbies in good physical condition and what goes up must come down. Bringing it down was much easier. The positives are that this was a beautiful apartment in a perfect location. We stayed in 3 different apartments during our 25 day trip and these bathrooms were the most updated of any that we had. Paul had the kitchen stocked and this was the only place where we had full length mirrors in our bedrooms. And the beds were wonderful! I would stay here again, but pack lighter. Paul also was very quick to answer our questions and assist us in anyway that he could. We were fortunate that all 3 of our rental properties were excellent in every way.
We loved this apartment. It has been beautifully updated and decorated. The beds and bathrooms were very comfortable and the living room had plenty of space for us to spread out and visit after a long day.
You cannot beat the location - it is so convenient to all the sights. We were able to visit places and come back to the apartment and rest and regroup and then go again. The owner was very responsive to all our questions and needs.
I would highly recommend this apartment if you are coming to Edinburgh!
