“Great apartment, great location!”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed for a long weekend and the apartment was perfect – clean, spacious, and bright, with an amazing view of the castle and a small balcony. The kitchen is very well-equipped. The location is very central – within walking distance of all that Edinburgh has to offer. I would definitely recommend the apartment and would stay here again!

“Everything you could want for a great break in Edinburgh”

person found this review helpful

Just had a really relaxing break at this apartment. It had everything we needed was perfectly located and we found it very comfortable. I see other reviewers have highlighted issues with the stairs to this apartment,for which if I'm truly honest are a little dingy etc. However this is more than made up for by the views and benefits once you have made the climb. So don't let this put you off staying here. Let's face it,Edinburgh is full of steps and hills to climb! It certainly adds to the character and charm of the place. Good value and recommended

“Great vacation location”
Reviewed July 31, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in July and it couldn't have been nicer. The apartment is cozy but not tiny. It has all the amenities that you you could ask for, including a washer/dryer! It's true that the three flights of stairs are a bit steep and a little dark, but they just added to the Scottish atmosphere. The views of the castle are amazing and the location is very central.

“Lovely studio apartment in great location”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The apartment is ideally located in the centre of the Grassmarket area - beside Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and walking distance from Princes Street. The stairway up to the apartment lets it down a bit - I wouldn't have felt safe if I had been staying myself. The apartment itself has a great kitchen, lovely big bed and a very comfortable sofa bed. The bathroom is a bit small but adequate. Great views of the Castle. Barry was very good in keeping in touch with us and met us as soon as we arrived into the city. Would definitely stay here again.
