We enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh. A very beautiful city and a spot-on location for the apartment to explore the city from. Many thanks for the cosy apartment.

Amazing Location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is so close to everything in Edinburgh. Short walk to the National Museum, Castle, National Gallery and Royal Mile. There are many restaurants near, and coffee directly across the street. The apartment itself is a sweet little place with everything you need.

Edinburgh for first time!

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect location when in Edinburgh, this is it. Located just up the street from the Grassmarket and 5-7min walk to the Royal Mile it's in walking distance to so many areas and so many things to see and do. We enjoyed our stay, though a little updating in some areas would go a long way (but cosmetic, such as matts etc) it had just what we needed. I would certainly stay at this location again. In a heartbeat. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

After staying in Paris and London , in Best Western nice hotels , we were pleased to have room to have room to relax , and have a coffee or a glass of wine . The apartment was furnished adequately for our needs , quiet and we felt very safe in our unit . Should we ever visit Scotland and Edinburgh again , we would certainly try to get the same unit , and we will recommend to others Bruce MacRitchie Niagara Falls Canada

great apt in a great city

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our adventure in Edinburgh. This apt. is well located just off the Grassmarket , making city attractions an easy walk.The apt was spotless and well suited to 3 adults for sleeping. We could hear the tattoo every night but otherwise was pretty quiet. Plenty of pubs,cafes,and resturants in area.

I will recomend this flat and this city as a wonderful vacation spot. Martin was very helpful setting us up and working with us on our early arrival. Vacation Rentals Scotland has other units as well so you can probably find a location to suit your needs.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

First, Edinburgh's beauty lifts the souls of its inhabitants. Loved it. Second, Webster's Land is ideally suited to walk to everywhere you'd want to go in a week. Third, Cafe Le Bleu straight across the road is a home of fine culinary art and great coffee. Fourth, the place itself is well appointed and beats the crap out of the more expensive local hotels.

Great package, highly recommended.

Cosy flat with excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this clean, comfortable and well-equipped apartment. Its main asset is certainly its perfect location in the old town, near to the castle and the lively pubs of Grassmarket. Martin, the owner, is helpful and considerate (we appreciated his treats and message on our arrival). We didn't see him but knew we could easily get in touch with him should we have any questions or requests. Booking was quick and efficient, and the keys reached us (abroad) safely and in due time!

This apartment is situated in an ideal location, right in the heart of the city, overlooked by Edinburgh Castle. The apartment is in a small secure courtyard setting just off the famous Grassmarket area with its continental influence of cafes, bars and restaurants. Just a short walk will take you to the Royal Mile and the world-famous Princes Street. There are so many attractions in Edinburgh City Centre, they are too numerous to mention, but one thing is for sure, they'll be on your doorstep!
