Owner Moira's charming rental is a quite good value for this area. You have to understand that Edinburgh is a fairly expensive city. Certainly not New York or London or Tokyo, but a far away site on the budget-scale from West Virginia, say. And it suited well our mode of travel. Two flights up on oft-traveled concrete stairs, 29 Lauriston Street seemed an oasis after a day's adventure exploring. Snug but well appointed kitchen, hot-water soothing shower, comfy bed. Fast internet with no hiccups.

And close in: Edinburgh Castle perhaps 10 minutes of walking, St Giles church a little farther. At the end of our stay we trundled suitcases along a mainly level though unevenly paved route to Haymarket station, in a Scottish drizzle, for maybe 15 minutes.

We would return to Moira's apartment in a heartbeat.

“Perfect flat, perfect location”

My husband and I stayed in this well-appointed, well-decorated apartment in early August - just as the Fringe Festival was beginning. There is a grocery store just around the corner and many restaurants and shops nearby, even the Saturday morning market. We walked everywhere. The wi fi worked well, the bed was large and comfortable, the kettle boiled quickly (always a treat to North Americans!), and there was nothing the apartment lacked. Brian met us with the keys and showed us the apartment, we just left them behind as we left. All very easy. Only query perhaps was what to do with recycling, but we just left that behind too! A wonderful home base while in Edinburgh, can't recommend it highly enough. (Though not wheelchair friendly as there are stairs, if that is a concern.) Thank you Moira and Brian.

“Best apartment”

We have stayed in various apartments for the fringe festival but this is the best one we have ever stayed in. Perfect location with easy walking to George Square, Cowgate, George Street. It had everything we needed, and a lovely touch to be provided with milk, coffee and tea bags.
The booking was simple and arrangements to pick up the key were perfect.
This apartment can be booked for less then a week's stay during the festival which we found to be a great advantage.
There was some noise from people shouting outside at night so I recommend earplugs. That was the only slight disadvantage.

This lovely and homely apartment is cosy and comfortable - it has everything you could need for your stay in Edinburgh. It is centrally located, only an easy stroll away from the tourist centre of Edinburgh. The owner, Moira, is lovely and was very accommodating of our very late arrival due to a delayed flight. I recommend this apartment without hesitation and would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay in this apt very much...easy walk to the Grass Market area which had buses, shops and restaurants. The apt had everything you needed...it is a 2nd story walk up...once in the unit you will find yourself in a cosy, well decorated very comfortable apt. We enjoyed our 4 day stay here and would stay here again when we are in the Edinburgh area.

“Fantastic Apartment”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed here for the Edinburgh marathon. It is well located at the bottom of the Royal Mile and in walking distance to shops and restaurants. The owner could not have been more helpful. When we arrived there was a bottle of wine, fresh milk & coffee for us. We had a late flight out and asked for a late check out around 5pm. This was no problem even though she had another family arriving early the next morning - she works around the guest and is extremely accommodating wherever possible.
The apartment itself is nice, it's in an old building but inside it's lovely. The kitchen is small but well equipped and had everything (and more) that we needed. The bed is comfortable and the whole apartment is clean and like a home away from home. I will definitely stay here again for my next visit to Edinburgh. Thanks Moira!
