Great place for a short stay

  • 5 of 5

We visited Edinburgh for three days in November 2018 and really enjoyed staying in this flat. While it is not the most lavish accommodation, it certainly suited our purpose and the price was extremely competitive. It was far roomier that it appears from the description. And, the location was great: a ten-minute walk to the city centre, to Broughton and to Stockbridge. Most importantly, as the temperature was below 0C most of our stay, the flat was very warm!

The bedroom featured a large, very comfortable bed. Everything you would need for a short stay was in the kitchen, the sitting room was comfortable and the shower worked well(!).

My only concerns were that the flat contains a washer, not a dryer (so you cannot do laundry just before departing) and it would have been nice to have a real ironing board, rather than the table top model that comes with the flat. However, these are minor points. We really enjoyed the stay.

Cozy and Well Situated

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Edinburgh, and the New Town with its gorgeous architecture and sense of history is a great place to stay. The castle is only 20 minutes walk away, and being close to one of the main streets (Dundas Street) there is no shortage of amenities nearby.

The flat itself is cosy and homey. It feels more like staying in a friend's flat, as opposed to a hotel or commercial apartment in terms of facilities and cleanliness, but for the price we were very comfortable and would happily stay again. Francois was very helpful - arranging a parking space and travel cot for us. Thanks! We had a lovely holiday.

Perfect base to stay

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little apartment in Edinburgh. Just the two of us staying, found it very cosy, quiet and warm. Close to the city centre, albeit an up hill walk (like all of Scotland!), but enjoyable! About a 15minute walk to Waverly train station, and 1minute to a Tesco express. Perfect as a base to go off and explore. We came to Edinburgh for a friend's wedding at the Mansfield Traquir (which is a max of 8minute walk away), so glad an iron/ironing board and hairdryer were available for us to use! Stayed for a week, and wish we could have stay longer!! Would be lovely to return to the city, and to this apartment.
