“Perfect location.”
Reviewed February 12, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This is the perfect location from which to explore Edinburgh old town. A top floor flat with fantastic views across the city roof tops. We arrived on a cold day to find a warm and welcoming flat. It was comfortable and cosy throughout and everything worked well. There was good communication with the owner before and during our trip and the strange problem we had with the kitchen floor was rectified without question. There is so much to see and do all within a walking distance of this great little flat. The only thing that might possibly put visitors off would be the 79 steps up to the flat, but we enjoyed the exercise! No. 1, the pub on the corner, just across the road is excellent.

“Cozy with view”
Reviewed December 27, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were delighted with this flat on the top floor of a fine old building in Old Town, convenient walking distance from train station, castle, museums, and all the best Edinburgh sights. Excellent choice of good restaurants, pubs, and shops nearby. Does require walking up 4 flights but the grand view (and rooftop terrace) are your reward.

This is a great flat and an excellent location for exploring this beautiful city either during the festival or at any other time of year. It had everything we needed including some wonderful welcoming touches. The only drawback is the four flights of stairs!

We stayed here the second week in June when temperatures were still rather cool. We are a married couple with two daughters ages 21 and 11 that accompanied us.
The apartment was as advertised. The owners have provided everything to make a stay comfortable: not only was the kitchen fitted out with all the necessities but there were replacement garbage bags, band-aids, extra blankets, laundry soap, a binder with written instructions on how to operated everything in this fully fitted unit. The bookshelf held maps and travel guides.
Parking our car was no problem. There is a car park nearby and it was never full. We were also able to park on the street over Sunday saving some money. The flat was a short walk from the Waverly Station (train). It was literally on the Royal Mile, and we were able to walk to everything with ease. Location could not have been better.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying there and would stay again. One thing bears noting: the advertisement clearly mentions the stairs. There is no lift and the flat is on the top floor. I loved the exercise but travelers who cannot tolerate stairs would not enjoy this flat. My mother could never have made it past the first landing.

This was my second stay at this apartment. It is a well presented apartment in a central location and I would have no hesitation in choosing it again. The only drawback if you are not fit is that it is on the fourth floor so be aware there are a lot of steps to climb.

Thanks for your review, and we're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your return visit to Flat 14. Yes, you're right that there are quite a few stairs up to the top floor, but I guess that the up side are the views that you get from being at this height, both from the living room and from the roof terrace above. Best regards, Martin, Vacation Rentals Scotland

“Super location!”
Reviewed June 1, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We really enjoyed our stay at Jeffery St. The location is perfect, steps off the Royal Mile and 5 minutes walk or less to the train station. The flat is very comfortable and well equipped. It was a bit too cold this time to enjoy the rooftop patio, but it is a beautiful spot. The flat is on the top floor, so lots of steps. (Which was fine with us as it helps to work off all that pub food!)

Glad to hear that you had a good time at Jeffrey Street. Yes, the roof top can be a little chilly when the sun isn't shining, but we hope that you nevertheless enjoyed the views from up there (even if you had to wrap up when out in the open air!).
We hope to be able to welcome you back at some point in the future.

Our family of 4 stayed in the flat & we loved it! I think the part we liked best was the roof top. Amazing views & just so peaceful to sit out & enjoy the evening with a glass of wine. Great location, didn't have to catch a taxi for anything. Lots of great coffee shops, restaurants & pubs nearby, & the train station is just around the corner. I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Edinburgh! Slainte Mhath!
