Well-located in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment. Heather was very responsive to communication, and came to help when I had issues getting in to the apartment (100% user error as her directions were very clear). The kitchen and bathrooms are small but efficient. The location is great: walkable to Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Royal Mile, and good restaurants. Perfect vacation space for 2 people!

Excellent location

Well equipped, close to everything, quiet and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this apartment. And Heather was very responsive, gave great directions and instructions and the shortbread was a lovely touch.

Excellent location in lively area but a few problems with wifi, downstairs toilet & bathroom.

  • 3 of 5

Wifi was unreliable & very slow. Bathroom extractor fan sounded like a motor mower & the shower pipes sounded like a plane taking off. Kept our showers as short as possible because the noise was so horrible. Downstairs toilet never worked.
