“Better than the pictures! Keep it a secret :-)”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Better than the pictures! It is much larger, lighter and clean/modern...

This apartment is just wonderful.

LOCATION: It is 20-25 minutes walking distance from Princes Street. With amazing and stunning views along the way to keep you wanting to walk for longer! You will enjoy a nice walk along a road that offers views of Arthur's Seat and other hills and parks.

There's a big Sainsbury's 3 minutes driving distance from the apartment.

It was nice to be away from the noise of the city, but still close enough that you can just hop on a bus, take a short taxi ride or a lovely walk along the park :-)

THE APARTMENT: Perfect. Clean, modern, luxurious. Both rooms are quite big (one of them with an ensuite bathroom, the other with a bathroom just across the hall so almost ensuite).

The living room and open plan kitchen is big, comfortable and has a Samsung LCD widescreen TV (about 37-42 inches, perfect for movies!), with DVD and VHS players, books, all the kitchen equipment you need, and beautifully decorated with (modern and light).

The balcony offers a breathtaking view of Calton Hill (National Monument and Nelson Monument are in plain view!).

Wifi is included.

SERVICE: Our host met us at the building and was very gracious. She gave us two sets of keys, showed us around the apartment and was available throughout the weekend in case we had questions or any problems.

Bear in mind that this is not a hotel, so there is no room service or daily turnover service! I'm sure if you need someone to clean the apartment more than once a week and if you need towels changed daily (or simply more towels!) then they will be able to accomodate your requests.
