What a perfect apartment. The location couldn't be better, on the Royal Mile a mere block or two away from Edinburgh Castle and very close to the museums, pubs and cafes. The apartment itself is exactly as presented; the large living room is nicely furnished and has a warm, cozy atmosphere with comfortable seating for four or more adults. There are also good light-blocking shutters throughout (important for 4:30 a.m. sunrises) and comfortable beds. The bathrooms deserve special mention. The en suite bathroom in the main bedroom is truly luxurious and even the small second bath is top of the line--we loved the heated floor. There is no closet in the apartment, which is not unusual in old buildings with character like this, but the owner has provided a portable rack for hanging clothes which was all we needed. Despite an eight-hour time difference, Paul responded to our emails within hours and was a true professional to deal with. We wouldn't hesitate to go back here or to recommend it to friends. I can't imagine there is a better choice.
