“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

The reviews and photos are not enough to show just how perfect this apartment is.

The 3 flights of stairs are a pain BUT it is worth it when you're in the gorgeous room. The attention to detail is sensational!

We loved our stay and cannot wait to come back.

“Excellent location, great apartment”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a great time in Edinburgh. The apartment was great with a bird's eye view over grassmarket. The location was excellent, being only a few minutes walk from the castle and other interesting sights.

The apartment was spotless. Don't be put off by the entrance or stairs.

“Loveliest apartment”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This is the loveliest little apartment we have rented - and we have had plenty of experience. Well worth the climb, within convenient walking distance of most Edinburgh attractions, well located near restaurants and shops, and above all charmingly decorated, clean and modern with many extra touches which immediately made us feel at home. Thank you, Pauline and Richard.

“Lovely little pad in the heart of Edinburgh”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My fiance and I stayed here for 2 nights in April. He is a born an bred Glaswegian; me on the other hand have never visited the Scottish capital before so I decided to enter the city's Rock n Roll Half Marathon and chose the Grassmarket Flat primarily due to its location which was very close to the start line. Well what a pleasant surprise it was! Light & airy, spotless and furnished beautifully throughout. We particularly loved the Scottish theme with thick tartan curtains and thistles (which as a result we have decided to include in our wedding flowers!). The only criticism I could make was that the bars outside the flat were quite noisy on the saturday evening, but it was a saturday after all and I guess its to be expected with a flat right in the middle of town so we couldn't complain! We still had a perfect nights sleep and would definately stay here again! Thankyou!

“Beware: this will make you think other apartment rentals are rubbish :)”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

What can I say about this accommodation apart for this: we are telling all our friends and family to stay there and we will definitely be back!
Spotlessly clean, 5* hotel décor, extremely stylish (contemporary "Scottish" theme yet extremely cosy and romantic. It made me wonder if professional decorators had been involved?) superb attention to details, excellent location, outstanding customer service with personalised touches and little extras... you can tell the owners work extremely hard to make this apartment a little heaven and they have certainly succeeded.
While you are there would like to recommend:
- Heading to "Hula" the juice bar (across the street) for a delicious smoothie. The staff are so friendly, I was told if you give them a ring they would even home deliver for you as the apartment is so close. My husband loved their "hangover" detox smoothie!! I loved the fresh smoothies, home made soups and delicious cakes.
- The Greyfriars cemetery ghost tour for a little bit of fun night time entertainment. We only realized towards the end of our stay the cemetery is actually two minutes away from the flat!!!
- Find the local mini supermarket (I can't remember if it's a Sainsbury's or Tesco?!) at the beginning of your stay if you need to buy a few extras (the owners kindly provide basics like milk etc).
We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!
