Auld Reekie has all the basics you need in a low budget kind of way. Everything is clearly pretty cheap but it's warm, there's hot water and you get a towel each. It's adequately clean but I would say it's been a while since it was deep cleaned or had any money spent on it. 64 steps up to the... More

Stayed for the weekend with friends and overall the apartment was clean, in a great spot and just what we needed with 6 of us. Well kept and spacious. The tiny gripe for us was just the little touches like no tea or coffee or salt and pepper. In the grand scheme of it they are not important but litle... More

After a five day walking tour staying at B&Bs, it was great to be able to prepare our own meals and wash our clothes. While there was a washing machine, no washing powder or sachets was provided, which did mean the purchase of a box at the supermarket to do just one load of washing - rather wasteful. However the...

This is a very pleasant apartment near the centre of Edinburgh, within easy walking distance of many of the city's attractions. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay: it's quiet, well-maintained, spacious and everything was in good working order. Free WiFi was a bonus for the very reasonable price. I would note that there are... More

This review is for a 3 bedroom apartment just off the royal mile that is on the third floor of an 1850's building so no lift. The stairs are a bit of a hike, not too bad but elderly or injured should not book this flat. The apartment had 1 3/4 baths which were redone by the owner/proprietors and are... More

We were a little nervous when we arrived as the entrance is a little shabby but once we got to the apartment we were very happy. Great view, spacious light rooms and well equipped. Location is good - a short walk to the royal mile, we liked the fact we were off the main tourist drag - lots of food... More

This apartment is ideally situated for exploring the Old Town. It offers spacious and comfortable accommodation and we found it ideal. It was clean and tidy and we settled in and felt at home right away. Unlike some other travellers I find the fact that I don't need to meet the owners a refreshing change. They were however easily contacted... More
