“Bright and airy flat with gorgeous views”
Reviewed April 27, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

It feels a long climb up the stairs of an old Edinburgh poorhouse, but definitely worth it to reach this charming flat. We were met by Jane (and her adorable dog), who made sure we knew where everything in the flat was and that we had everything we needed. The flat was beautiful, despite it's small size it never once felt cramped, and we couldn't have asked for a better spot; really convenient and fantastic views of Edinburgh from Calton Hill to the Castle. Definitely recommend, and we hope to return.

“Don't hesitate !”
Reviewed April 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2016

The apartment we rented was absolutely excellent, and the owner, Graham, extremely helpful and available to answer all our questions.
The place is extremely charming and looks over one the Edimburgh landmark (a very quiet one too). The place is very quiet and surrounded by everything you need: museums, 10 min walking from the main touristic street, the black friar pub, etc...

You cannot hope for a better location in a better apartment for a better price !

“Fabulous, cosy, great facilities, excellent location”
Reviewed March 21, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Right in the heart of the Old Town, the flat is perfectly situated for easy access by foot to the whole city. On your doorstep, the famous Sandy Bells and Royal Oak round the corner if you like music! Well equipped wee flat and I had no troubles getting in and out. Kitchen well stocked and comfortable bed. Amazing views!

My wife and I stayed here for our nine year anniversary and couldn't have been happier with the place. Located just a few blocks from everything, the location was perfect as Edinburgh is a very walkable city. In 10 minutes or less, we were in the heart of the city and seeing the sites or jumping on a bus to get further afield. We definitely enjoyed Sandy Bells, about 30 feet from the front door, and met some great people to sit and drink with.

The apartment had everything you need for a night out or a night in. Jane and Graham were both very informative and answered our questions about things to do and see in the area and how to get where we wanted to go.
As mentioned in other reviews, just pay attention to where your head is. I am 6'3" and had to be careful after a few drinks. Otherwise, the stairs were completely manageable and offered you a chance to really think about whether or not you needed what you left behind.
Thanks to Jane and Graham for a great experience.
