“Great location, very helpful owners”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed here for a week in March. The location was excellent - within easy walking distance of Waverley Station, with bus and tram stops nearby. The Portrait Gallery (also definitely worth a visit) is literally just around the corner. I loved the view of the Firth of Forth from the doorstep.

The owner was very kind in being flexible about check-in time, since my train arrived very early in the morning and I was allowed to check in upon arrival. Thank you Fiona!

It was a bit cold and rainy when I was there, but the flat was always warm and cozy. No problems operating the appliances and wifi.

Edinburgh is a great walkable city, and from this location you can explore the New Town and Stockbridge easily on foot. I got a bus pass for the week to explore further afield, but if you're just planning on staying in the centre, you might not even need that.

Very friendly owner, great location just on the Broughton Street side of the city centre (fantastic selection of bars and restaurants), and everything you could need provided in the apartment.

“Cannot Fault This......”
Reviewed February 20, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Booked this for Welsh rugby weekend. Superb communiciation with Fiona the owner, who met us early at the flat. Superbly appointed, great furnishings, lots of extras like guide books, maps etc. Welcome pack, but all the home comforts there as well. Off street secure parking available. Warm, cozy home from home!! Will be back in two years!!

“Great apartment, great service, and excellent location”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We been there for 3 nights on november with my wife and the aparment was very confortable, Fiona was very kind with us, she bring us cereals, milk, jam and also umbrellas for us, the apartment is great and very clean, also very close to Edinburgh atractions, and easy to arrive from airport with tram, just one block, it also have a supermarket at one block, so you can get what you want to cook on the apartment, and don´t spend too much money on restaurants as they are expensive there. If I comeback to Edinburgh again for sure I will stay on this aparment!!!!!!

“An amazing apartment centrally located”
Reviewed January 2, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This was our third year staying at the apartment and we plan to return again later this year.
Fiona and Alan have thought of and provided you with everything you could need in the apartment. The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable.
Even though the apartment is right in the city it never surprises us how quiet it is.
The owners are very knowledgeable about the area and we ate at one of the places they had recommended, which was very good.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to all my friends should they choose to visit Edinburgh.

“Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location!”
Reviewed October 30, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a central location in Edinburgh. There was plenty of space for our family of four and the apartment was wonderfully presented as advertised. We found it very easy to get around Edinburgh from this location, and that is with children aged three and six years. Fiona was warm and welcoming and her and Alan were a pleasure to communicate with in arranging our stay. Our deposit was paid back very promptly too. Overall, a wonderful experience!

“Perfect place to stay while in Edinburgh at the Fringe!”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Three of us (2 adults and 1 teen) were in Edinburgh for the Fringe in early August. This was a perfect place for the three of us to stay. The apartment is in easy walking distance from all the shows we went to - no more than 15 or 20 minutes from everything we did. We were happy to be close but a little bit out of the center of everything so that when we went home at night the neighborhood was calm and quiet. Within a block or two of the apartment are cafes, restaurants, shops -- really anything you would need -- and the neighborhood felt very comfortable to walk around at any hour. This is a basement apartment, one floor below street level. There are windows to the street. The kitchen had enough equipment to make breakfast and whatever else we wanted. The bedroom was comfortable for two and my son slept in the living room on the fold out couch. It is simple but comfortable and clean. Fiona, the apartment owner, was extremely helpful and professional. I totally recommend this place for a couple or small family -- and -- Edinburgh for Fringe was the greatest!!
