“A cosy apartment with a grand view”
Reviewed 13 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Spending our holidays in Edinburgh for the second time, we were so happy to find out how close this apartment is situated to our favourite places. Whatever you plan for the day, be it a walk up or down the Royal Mile or up the Holyrood, see the royal castles or listen to music at night in the pubs and walk home after one pint or another, go shopping where food and restaurants are cheaper than in the center -- this apartment is the ideal place to find a rest, quiet in spite of its position. There was ample room to store our stuff, a cute little kitchen with all technical equipment, a cosy living room and a large bathroom with daylight window. Our host was always in reach and patiently gave advice on key and shower handling. We so enjoyed our stay and recommend the place for city travellers who don't mind a few stairs, but enjoy the view instead.

I'm so glad you mentioned how quiet the apartment is. We love being able to put the children to bed knowing they'll sleep through despite being in the city centre. Thanks!

“Great Location Incredible Service!”
Reviewed 28 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

Fantastic apartment right in the heart of Edinburgh's city centre, yet the views of Arthur's Seat make you feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle. The apartment itself is cosy, warm, clean and has plenty of storage space. Highly recommend a visit to the Holyrood 9A pub (30 seconds down the hill) they have an awesome burger kitchen and many craft beers.

The owner was SO genuinely accommodating, polite, helpful and made sure that our stay was everything we'd hoped. You rarely find service this good in the UK and it was such a breath of fresh air. Would definitely book again!!!

Thanks for another great review, this time from the standpoint of an Edinburgh resident! I think it can be daunting for guests to book an aparment in a city they've never visited so thank you for giving feedback on the great location. I'm looking forward to your family's next visit.

Thanks for the 5 star review; I think good service is tested most when problems occur so I was delighted that my caretaker could fix the tap so quickly. I'm glad you commented on the comfort of the sofa bed. You're right, the single beds are very slightly narrower than normal singles, making for a king sized double. Bedding arrangements can be changed before (or even during your stay if you're happy to remake the beds yourselves!), we would just ask for a small amount to cover any additional laundry bills.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, come back soon!
