“In the University area. Up a Hill”
Reviewed October 4, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This was an apartment in the University area. It was very convenient to the main area of Edinburgh. There are a good variety of restaurants nearby. Two well known pubs are near. There is also a very good vegetarian restaurant. The only problem we had was initially opening the door. You need to use both keys for the door to the apartment. It had a nice view of Arthur's seat. If you are coming from the train station be prepared for a hike up a hill. But then it is Edinburgh.

“Mr”
Reviewed November 28, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just had a very nice weekend at Oscar's Central Holiday apartment. The location is fantastic, within just a couple of minutes walk we could be on the Royal Mile and just a few minutes more and we were at the Christmas markets on Princes Street Gardens.
The apartment itself was very clean and well equipped. We will definitely be staying there again

“Great Location!”
Reviewed October 9, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This apartment is in such a great location! I booked it knowing it was close to the Royal Mile but I had no idea how close to all of the tourist attractions it actually was. I've been here for a week and haven't needed to rent a car or use public transportation, everything I've wanted to see has been within walking distance. There are also a lot of amenities close by which is really convenient.
The apartment had everything to make it feel like home for the two weeks that we are here.
And the owner was available to answer my questions prior to our arrival which was a huge help and the booking process was so easy!

“great location, very clean, comfortable”
Reviewed July 7, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The flat has a great location. It was very clean and comfortable that made us feel home. There is car parking available next to the apartment, we could park our car easily. I stayed there with my family, and we are very content of our visit. We would be very happy to stay here again, we recommend it to everyone.

“Absolutely fabulous! Five star accommodation!”
Reviewed May 20, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The flat was absolutely fabulous, spotlessly clean, peaceful, warm and comfortable and we were provided with freshly laundered linen and towels. I slept very well on the sofa bed and made good use of the shower - the bathroom was lovely. The kitchen was perfect too with supplies of essentials - tea, coffee, oil, vinegar, spices etc and a really good washer. I was able to run round Arthur's seat - only minutes away and we could walk to all the places of interest - and the sun shone! The owner was easy to contact and very helpful at all times. I would love to stay here again and it was certainly better than any hotel. Thank you.
