I will first put the only thing that may hinder other guests: you will have to clime a spiral staircase to get to this apartment! But it is bloody worth it.
This place is absolutely fantastic, I wish I could have stayed longer. The owner, Sean, alough I didn't meet in person, was hospitable and very helpful with every aspect of our stay in Edinburgh.
Grassmarket is a place full of life, you have a small shop within stones throw to get your essentials, pubs a eateries right at your door step. It's just adds to the attraction of this place. A lovely view of the castle from the front bedroom and an overall beautiful view to go along with a beautiful appartment.
Could not recommend more!
This is an amazing apartment right in the heart of Edinburgh. A traditional and very spacious apartment with period features. The photographs don't quite do it justice. Yes it can be noisy late at night for a while but it is in the middle of a busy area with lots of pubs, so some noise is expected. A great base for visiting the city. Sean was very easy to contact regarding keys etc. I would definitely recommend this apartment & I will definitely book it in my next trip to Edinburgh.
A great location in the heart of the old town. A good value apartment with wonderful views down Grassmarket. The only downside was the noise at nighttime from the busy street below, but we had been warned.
Great location, lovely apartment, Sean very helpful. Had a great stay, milk and complementary shortbread a lovely touch. The fifty odd steps of the spiral staircase could be a problem for some but my husband and I are 60 plus and we managed fine. Yes it was noisy at night but you can't expect anything else in a central location. We would definitely return and so would our friends.
We stayed in this two bedroom second-floor flat in the centre of Edinburgh between Christmas and New Year in order to attend a wedding. We had everything we needed and more. Sean our host couldn't have been more helpful.
The photos don't do it justice, the rooms were so spacious and the kitchen had all the apparatus we needed.
Excellent wifi. Only downside was the loud noise from the Main Street through the single pane windows, however with ear plugs we all slept well.
Would heartily recommend.
