“Fantastic location”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This apartment was positioned centrally looking right over the Grassmarket, it was so close to everywhere we wanted to visit that it made our trip very easy. We stayed for a weekend and if you are looking for peace and quiet then I wouldn't recommend this apartment as although the location was great for us, it was very noisy at night due to the close proximity of the bars in the Grassmarket. This was not a problem for us but is something you should be aware of if looking to book here. The inside of the apartment was very nice and had everything you would need for a short stay. There were 6 of us and although it is sold as accommodating 6, the sofa bed was not very comfortable and maybe it would be more suitable for a 4 person visit. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to likeminded friends and family.

“Excellent grass market apartment”
Reviewed October 19, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Great apartment. Excellent location, close to everything. Clean, fresh crisp linen, quality towels. Large apartment overlooking grassmarket, great for people watching out the window and a small view of the castle. Sean was very good in terms of replying to our questions and helpful for luggage storage. Thank you a great stay!

“perfect location”
Reviewed September 19, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My husband and I along with our 2 adult children and our son's girlfriend had a wonderful stay! The location is just off the Royal Mile and it was very easy to walk to all of the sights. The only thing to be aware of is that if you are staying in warmer days where you open the windows, it is loud outside until the pubs close. We enjoyed our stay and would book again.

Reviewed September 14, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Beautiful apartment with lots of original features which were a dream for me, the spiral staircase took some getting used to but good exercise after all the haggis & whisky ☺ well equipped and basics supplied such as tea coffee milk etc, and of course the essential shortbread!! Perfectly located for exploring edinburgh, would definitely recommend to others!! And we'd definitely go back!!

“family Apt in central Edinburgh”
Reviewed August 16, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Quaint centrally located apt with view of Edinburgh Castle (similar view to that of JK Rowling's when writing Harry Potter, with Elephant Cafe close by). Well kept, clean with all kitchen staples provided. Easy to book, return keys. Spiral staircase (3 floors) a bit dizzying but no problems carrying suitcases etc. Would definitely return!

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed August 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just returned from a Friday -Monday stay. 5 adults for a weekend of shopping an sightseeing. Upon arrival we collected keys from the backpackers place which is just round the corner. Young lady took us across to the apartment to show us round then left us to it. Sean ,the owner was always on hand with any queries we had prior to our arrival.
Apartment is well stocked even had, milk,tea,coffee and shortbread left for us. Towels and bedding provided .

The apartment overlooks the Grass market and its a fab place for just sitting a people watching...which we did a lot of :) The stairs are quaint and tiring,but its well worth the hike up them.
Would definitely return to this apartment.We have looked to booking it for our November trip buts into not available :(
