A well presented and equipped property
A good family time was had by all all of us who had travelled from New York. Bath and London to be together. It was good to meet Francois at the property on arrival as he could take us through everything we needed to know about the Flat, the environs and Edinburgh. We would recommend it for a stay just out of the bustle of central Edinburgh
Comfortable and convenient
A lovely flat in the New Town, conveniently located for shops and amenities, Francois welcomed us and showed us how everything worked which was a really nice start. The flat is well laid out and everything worked really well. There were four adults and two teenagers and a visit from our son who is at university - Francois provided a put up bed to accommodate him as soon as we arrived. We visited the nearby Botanic gardens and got the bus to HMS Brittania from around the corner. A lovely spacious and comfortable stay - thank you.
Lovely apartment handy for the city
Lovely apartment, fixtures fitting beds all very good. Well placed for the city only a walk away. The only negative was the constant problem with the Internet which in our case prevented accessing sky etc, other than that lovely and François very pleasant and helpful
spacious appartment in a lovely house
modern appartment in an old house, good fournished, and clean. quiet neighbourhood with restaurants and foodshops not far away. satisfaction all over.
Great Flat!! I'd rent it again!!
Our 1st floor flat in Edinburgh was everything we hoped it would be. It was very clean. The kitchen had all the tools and amenities we could ask for. Just as advertised, we were only five blocks from Princes street and only a little bit further, the Royal Mile. There was a Tesco right around the corner and a Sainsbury about a block away to get groceries.
When we first arrived in Edinburgh, we took a cab to the flat. When we gave the cab driver the address, the first thing he said to us was, 'You're in a great spot...close to everything!!' I took that as high praise and very reassuring. He was right!!
On the walk up to the city centre, there are many restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops and bakeries.
Definitely loved St. Vincent's pub around the corner and the restaurant, Bailies, was lovely and about a 10 minute walk away.
Francois was very helpful upon our arrival, showing us around the flat and telling us where everything could be found.
I give this great flat 5 stars because our week was perfect! The description that led us to rent was spot-on! I can highly recommend this super rental!!
Great location, great flat in the heart of New Town
We stayed here for one week in August 2016. Francois was at the flat waiting for us when we arrived. Wow!! We couldn't have asked for a better location. Close to all amenities..Tesco, an independent grocer and a bakery within a 1 min walk on Dundas whilst Sainsburys is a 2-3 min walk on Howe St. Both streets contained many restaurants, tea rooms, antique stores, galleries.....the list goes on. The walk up to Princes street was a little uphill but do-able. The flat was well kept, attractive and very spacious with a nice kitchen set up. The row of housing is attractive to look at and the street well kept as you walk up to number 56. We never encountered anything in the area that made us feel uncomfortable during our stay. We did have a couple smaller issues, however. The washing machine broke during the early part of our stay and had not been replaced by the time we left (we had 2 weeks worth of washing to do !!) and there was a fair amount of recycling in the stairwell when we arrived. We were told to add our recycling to it but we were creating a fair amount too so we just threw it out in the regular trash. We thought it could become a fire hazard. Would I stay again? Yes! Would I recommend to others? Yes!!
Activity and Interests
The property is located in the city centre so it is within easy walking distance of Waveley Station (15 minute walk), city centre attractions and shops and restaurants. There are a number of good shops and restaurants round the corner on Dundas Street. This street is also well known for its numerous, varied and expensive art galleries!
