“Spacious flat, great location and pet friendly - what more can you ask for!”
Reviewed July 27, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I stayed at Blair Street 1 in June 2017 with my wife and our Tibetan Terrier (Walton).

The whole experience from booking to arriving was made simple by the professional and customer friendliness of Glenn and his team.

The flat was spacious and clean - it can be a little noisy in the evening as it's located above a few bars in a popular and busy part of the city. However, I previously lived in Edinburgh city centre and it didn't bother us, in my view, it's an acceptable trade off for the convenience of location as you're never a few steps away from great bars, restaurants and local shopping.

A bonus for us was agreeing with Glenn that our very well behaved dog, Walton, could also stay - a much better option than a dog friendly hotel/B&B as he had space to wander around and once he settled in it was a relaxing "home from home" for him and us.

Thanks again Glenn, and team, I will certainly be booking again.

“My kids want to buy this flat”
Reviewed June 29, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This was a wonderful place to begin our adventure in Scotland. It had everything, including a dryer, that we needed. The location was superb, not on High Street, but just 1/2 block away. There are 2 grocery stores just around the corner and everything else you could want within walking distance in any direction, including the castle.
As a family of 5 traveling together, it was a challenge to find a place that was affordable and acceptable, but this place delivered! The flat itself was quiet inside and wonderfully decorated. The charm of the building is amazing. We willl definitely stay here again when we go back to Edinburgh in the future.

“Excellent”
Reviewed March 16, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I would highly recommend this company for booking your stay in Edinburgh. The accommodation was fantastic . It was very comfortable. It was clean and provided all the basics needed. We were met on arrival and everything we needed was explained to us. This apartment was extremely central , within a few steps of the Royal Mile. I would certainly use it again on any future trips to Edinburgh.

“Best location in Edinburgh, so central!”
Reviewed November 19, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Fantastic location, the apartment is so central for all Edinburgh sights.

We arrived early & rang the agent from the airport. They came early to leave us into the apartment. Its just off the royal mile, plenty shops, bars & restaurants within mere minutes.

The entrance to the apartment is shared but don't let it put you off when you first go in, the apartment itself is great,. Pics are very true to form, the windows are a bit drafty but there are plenty heaters & a working gas fine to cosy up to.

The kitchen is well equipped, we had no issue making dinner there.

Would definitely recommend the apartment!

Visited at the very start of the Fringe. Just off the Royal Mile and on a street that also leads to Cowgate. Apartment clean, kitchen well stocked with utensils and an excellent living space. Dave who greeted us was very helpful. One of the best features was that the bedrooms were at the back of the property so we all had wonderful, peaceful sleeps. Highly recommend.
