“Superb, Superb, Superb”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

First Superb is for the location - you can actually see Greyfriars Kirkyard out of the kitchen window - it's just like the Disney movie. Fantastic.
The second Superb is for the quality of the flat - clean, well appointed, tastefully decorated with lots of useful information from the landlord. Excellent.
The third Superb is for the fact that Greyfriars is right in the heart of things - 1 minute from the Grassmarket, but none of the noise, 10 seconds from the National Museaum and 2 minutes from The Meadows for a walk or picnic in the summer.
We're definitely going back.

“A Wee Gem”
Reviewed July 29, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

What a fantastic find. Couldn't have asked for a better location, and the accommodation itself was awesome. Look out the front windows and there, within stones throw, is the National Museum of Scotland, sit at the kitchen table at the back of the apartment, look down on the Greyfriars Kirk, open the window and listen to any number of tour guides giving the history of the Kirk and Greyfriars Bobby to their tour groups. Cross the road to Chambers Street and catch the Number 35 bus to Leith or get off enroute at Holyrood Castle. Just a very short walk across the Geroge IV Bridge and you are at the Royal Mile, and beyond that down the hill another short distance down the Mound is Princes Street, and its shops. Turn right out of the front door and walk 5 mins or less to a supermarket on Middle Meadow Walk. Axel was a star, kept in touch during my visit and was very helpful with information. Plenty of restuarants on the door stop and a pub right next door. Double glazing makes if very quiet. You couldn't asked for more. If I am lucky enough to be able visit Edinburgh again (and I hope I am) I will be definitely staying at Greyfriars Bobby Apartment.

“Excellent homely apartment in great central location”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The apartment was homely and modern with great views over to the National Museum of Scotland at the front and Greyfriars Churchyard at the back including Greyfriars Bobby's grave right in view. The booking process and communication was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed staying in central Edinburgh and such a lovely well-equipped apartment that was good value for money. Would go there again anytime!

“Such a welcoming home-style apartment. Great location & amenities.”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Located directly in front of iconic Edinburgh statue, Greyfriars Bobby, this flat is located on the 2nd floor of a lovely old building.

Views directly out the front are of the Museum of Scotland. And, out of the back, a wonderful view of Greyfriars Church.

The kitchen is really well appointed. With nice furnishing touches, local books and a typed out guide by the owner of his favourite restaurants and shops.

The sitting room features a really comfortable sofa, flat screen TV and real fireplace. In the bedroom, there is plenty of storage space & a very comfortable bed. The bedroom has been double glazed, providing added sound protection from the bustling outside world. Very considerate.

Overall, a fantastic centrally located destination from where to base yourself for a holiday or break in the City.

“The apartment is perfect....it's location, it's amenities, it's decor.....everything surpassed expectations!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Having never been to Edinburgh before this apartment was ideal, in the heart of the old town, not far from the castle and royal mile but also just a short stroll into the new town. Every home from home comfort and necessity was accomodated for and at a high standard within this character rich apartment. We could not have asked for anything more!
Axel - the owner - met us at the apartment (he even chased us down the street as we had gone the wrong way!!) to hand over keys and general housekeeping information, as well as advice for the best restaurants and swimming pools, including directions!! Axel also provided us with a much appreciated flexible check out (as we stayed the week before Christmas)
The only problem we found, was we could not get out of bed in the morning!!! It was an extremely comfortable and cosy bed!
