“Lovely Apartment”
Reviewed June 7, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Lovely spotlessly clean and warm apartment, the stairs could be a worry with people with difficulties but we managed fine. Beautiful Linen and bathroom. Close to restaurants, hotels and transport and The Castle in walking distance. Really enjoyed our stay.

Having stayed in a London Apartment in July which was disappointing to say the least I was concerned to get it right this time. This was such a contrast. The intitial contacts we friendly and reassuring, the instructions clear, and getting to the apartment straightforward. Although up 3 flights of stairs they are not the worst - just make sure you haven't overloaded the luggage!
The apartment was spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, and well equipped. There was nothing more needed. The thoughtful refreshments were very welcome.
Having expected to use lots of bus tickets we discovered that the central location meant we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted and only used the buses on one day.
All in all this is a wonderful find. And I hope we will be able to return at some time.

“Great apartment in a great location”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My husband and I booked for 3 nights from Thursday to Saturday. The apartment, in an old tenement building just off the Royal Mile, was spotlessly clean and beautifully updated and kitted out with everything we needed - comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and shower, immaculate kitchen, complete with dishwasher; comfortable sitting-room, with excellent TV. Very good and helpful communication from Jayne Cianca, and tea, coffee, and milk waiting for us on our arrival. On Saturday, we called Jayne to see if we could stay one more night and, because there was no one booked, she readily agreed - trusting us to leave her the extra night's charge. The location of the flat was brilliant - five minutes and we were on the Royal Mile. And, armed with Lothian Buses route map and a book of tickets, we explored Edinburgh and its surroundings with ease. I should say that the flat is 3 flights up but we (senior citizens!) managed fine and after a couple of days we managed without stopping for a breather. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment - just make sure your suitcase isn't too heavy!

“Worth the Climb!”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I chose to stay here after booking a room at the Central Travelodge before reading the poor reviews! I was so glad I made this decision.
The apartment is very good value and I only wish I had been staying longer than 2 nights. I found everything I needed: a firm bed (I have a back issue), spacious accommodation for one (or a couple), milk in the fridge for that first welcome cup of tea (provided), even an extension lead in the bedroom so I could blow dry my hair at the mirror (these small details are important to me). My only frustration was that I couldn't make out two of the letters or numbers for the wi-fi code when I wanted to check emails and it was too late at night to contact the owners.
Jayne was patient when I mislaid her communication about the key safe and Tony was really helpful and kind when I needed to call him on my arrival as I couldn't work out how the key safe worked!
It is a long way up (three flights of stairs) but I thought it was worth the climb. I would definitely stay here again.
