“Perfect location, fabulous flat”

We stayed in this property for 2 reasons: my husband came to Edinburgh for a work event during the week, and then I joined him at the weekend, with our two young children.

The flat was perfect for both our needs. Central and convenient for business; in a great location for fun. It is round the corner from the Museum of Childhood which gave us a fun couple of hours. It's almost on the Royal Mile, close to many historic places. We had a lovely walk to Holyrood Park. There are cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute walk, the station is also a 5 minute walk, and Princes Street and the New Town are maybe twice as far --- 10 minutes!

The flat itself was clean and comfortable; functional kitchen (though we did not do much cooking), comfortable bed and great sofabed. Lovely shower. Lovely views from the windows, and a spectacular roof terrace with amazing views. Although it is very central, we were not bothered by noise at all. This may be because the windows all face away from the street, but whatever the reason, we were relieved to be able to get a good night's sleep.

All in all it was a very easy experience, from getting the keys to saying goodbye to Edinburgh.

Liked least: It's on the 3rd floor, so quite a walk up (though of course this also gives you great views)

“Cosy, comfortable flat in excellent central location”

This flat is ideally situated for tourists, being just off the middle of the Royal Mile. It is quiet, being on the 3rd floor, and very comfortable, warm and cosy. There are excellent 360 views from the roof terrace of the building. The flat contains everything you might need for a short or slightly longer stay, there is even an X-Box with games and a selection of dvds for those wet Edinburgh evenings! However, being so closely situated near to fine pubs, restaurants, bars, shops, museums and other attractions, you'd be a fool to stay in any night and miss what Edinburgh has to offer! The only downsides to this flat were a lack of parking (which I knew full well about) and the 3 flights of stairs up to the flat: be warned if you have mobility issues. The flat is nicely decorated, with high ceilings, large windows with good views, and feels nice and homely. The bed is also extremely comfortable, having a memory-foam mattress, although I can't comment on the sofa-bed as we didn't use it.
