Wonderful studio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 10 days' staying in this city center studio. The location is great (A fantastic Cosmo restaurant is within a short walking distance and many other good resturants in this area) And Prince Street is quite close too. Many places of interest and bus stops are not far at all. The studio is so warm and comfortable for travellers. And the owner is very kind and helpful. We will stay here again next time!

Wonderful convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the flat as the location is so convenient for us and the accommodation overall meets our needs. Although the nights were cold out, the heater and gas fire kept the flat cozy and warm. There is some room for some improvement though and it's probably time for an upgrade to the mattress and bedding. Francois is very responsive, and when we had an issue with the curtain, he was quick to provide a fix.

Warm winter stay in an unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

I would have liked to give this 4.5 stars - it's not perfect but a very nice play to stay. I'll start with the only three negatives I have: the internet router needed to be reset very often, almost every few hours; the kitchen needed a decent knife (had trouble cutting lemons!), so I went ahead and bought one from Tesco and left it there; and finally, one of the curtain rails fell off the wall when we tried to close it, which happened towards the end of our stay so it didn't bother us. Francois was very communicative and I presume he has fixed it up after we left - these things happen with usual wear and tear.

Now for the positives. There are so many! First of all, Francois met me at the apartment and gave a great introduction to the city as well as all the things I needed to know. Good communication start to finish. Some previous reviews have said the shower is tricky but it's actually quite easy to set the temperature right, and great pressure too. The best restaurants and cafes are within easy walking distance, with several small supermarkets around the corner, as well as a larger Tesco 10 minutes' walk away. At the same time it's a quiet, classy street so no drunks or tourists wandering around. The gas heater is a godsend in the doldrums of winter, and an extra electric heater was provided. Great bed, sofa and plenty of space.

I highly recommend staying here.

Great location in Edinburgh

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the flat for nearly three weeks. While the flat was smaller than I expected from the pictures, the location was perfect for us as it is very close (short walking distance) to Princess Street and many other sites as well as being handy to grocery stores, coffee shops etc. It was well equipped for a short stay.

Great Place in Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Edinburgh and loved the apartment. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Loved the gas fireplace.The little store a block away (Tesco) was very convenient and we did some minor food prep in the kitchen. Also, as others noted, there are places to eat nearby. The bed was very comfortable however the sofa bed was not ....are they ever??? It was very convenient to have the washer/dryer. It does take quite a bit of time for a complete wash and dry but this is not a problem if you plan accordingly. We were able to walk EVERYWHERE and we did! Always we were happy to come back to our cozy, comfy apartment at the end of the day.

Francois met us at the apartment and explained everything to us. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for our stay in Edinburgh

  • 4 of 5

Great studio in New Town. Walking distance to the Castle and Waverely Station. Small Tesco in the next street. Francois was very prompt with replies to emails and met us at the door with keys etc. Very comfortable with everything you would need. Even a washer/dryer. We loved our stay here. Must watch the step up in the bathroom. Very hard to see at times on the dark tiles. Would definitely stay again.
