A Charming 1 Bedroom City Centre Flat on Cumberland Street



Updated: 21-Oct-2016
This self catering flat is located a 10 minute walk from Princes Street

The apartment is located on a quiet residential street yet is less than a 10 minute walk from Princes Street. It is on the lower ground floor and is accessed via steps from street level but has the benefit of having it's own main door entrance and a patio area.

The flat has an entrance hall which leads into the dining area. To the front is the bedroom, which is nice and bright as it is south facing and to the rear is the comfortable sitting room with LCD TV. This room has a sofa-bed which can increase capacity to 4. Wireless internet is provided.

Our 5 day stay was wonderful. The location put us within easy walking distance out many restaurants. The "Royal Mile" was maybe a 10 -12 minute walk.

Our accommodations were quire nice and clean. The space was ample and the shower was great.

We would stay again.

Great location, quiet and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 enjoyable nights in this nice apartment. The location is excellent; very quiet, and just round the corner there are buses and a supermarket.

We were met by Bridget, who was very friendly and helpful and allowed us to drop our bags off early. The comfortable bed had crisp white sheets and, at our request, Bridget had kindly substituted a blanket for the duvet.

The kitchen worked well for us and the shower was very efficient.

There were one or two minor maintenance issues;

• one of the mirror lights in the shower room wasn’t working and we couldn’t find a replacement in the cleaning cupboard.

• there was no door handle on the cleaning cupboard and it was a bit difficult to open using only the key.

• The toilet brush and holder need replacing.

• The lovely, tiled shower was let down by some mould at the bottom.

I know it is difficult to maintain old properties and these issues were not serious enough to spoil our stay; so we left a note when we left rather than phoning while we were there. Overall, the flat was clean and comfortable and we would be happy to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We think the handle for the cupboard had accidentally been pulled off during the previous stay and this has been replaced. The other items have also now been resolved.

Our few days in Edinburgh didn't seem long enough! The appartment is perfectly situated and with plenty of transportation nearby. Our host Bridget met and welcomed us into this interesting flat. She had lots of pointers and was full of information. Thank you Bridget.

We enjoyed our stay and found it was close to transportation. Good pub at end of the street and close to shops.

A real find

  • 5 of 5

This lovely flat had character, and a home-like atmosphere, original art work and building features. It was quiet, light and airy, easy to run (heating, appliances, etc) and very comfortably furnished with good reading lights in the living room and on both sides of the bed , just enough off the beaten track to feel like a resident, albeit temporary, and not a tourist. We explored the interesting neighbourhood on foot, and also walked to the usual places--galleries, restaurants (try The Dogs, Peter's Yard, Urban Angel), shops. We would love to go back and will recommend it to friends. The wi-fi was reliable, though the phone reception poor in that basement location. Not a problem once you get used to phoning en plein air at the top of the steps. The owner was friendly and helpful, and fixed a problem the same day we reported it.
