Wonderful flat in the heart of the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this property. It was cozy yet comfortable, convenient, and clean. I can be very picky about cleanliness and this place totally met my standards. The sheets and towels were obviously fresh and laundered. There was plenty of places for food and refreshments close by and the castle and Royal mile were within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice apartment with character in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern apartment in a very old building in a fantastic part of town. It has a lot of character but is not lacking in comfort. Well equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, very comfortable beds.

There were 4 of us — me, wife, daughter (22) and son (18). The place is not large but felt plenty big enough for us. We stayed 4 nights. Short walk to grocery stores, coffee shops (including Starbucks, which daughter cannot live without), and many good restaurants. It is within reasonable walking distance of anything you might want to see in the city centre.

If I ever come back to Edinburgh, I will try to book this place. Thank you, Louisa.

Perfectly situated!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh at the apartment. Everything was fresh and clean, with an amazing view of the street from the corner window in the Living Room.

Beds were comfortable, and and the black out drapes in the bedrooms worked well for the bright sun in the early mornings. We would have liked to have stayed longer!

Louisa is very attentive, and responds right away to any questions.

The apartment made our visit to Edinburgh memorable!

We had a great trip to Edinburgh because of this home. The flat is very well furnished and maintained. And the location is very convenient to almost everything in the City. Walking distance to most major attractions. Louisa is extremely responsive to questions and needs. Would definitely stay here again!

Convenient, Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The location of the property is perfect for visiting Edinburgh. The flat was clean, and all the rooms had everything necessary for a comfortable & relaxing stay. The neighborhood is great! Plenty of restaurants for dinner (Forage & Chatter), coffee/breakfast (Laura’s Kitchen), and pubs to enjoy. Any question asked was responded to quickly. A great place!
