“Fantastic old world apartment in a central location”
Reviewed May 16, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

Fantastic apartment in a great location. A proper old town residence with beautiful teak furniture and a fully equipped kitchen. It worked well as a family base for a long weekend and we would definitely go back. On the flip side the central location did mean it was a bit noisy at night. For anyone visiting it I would highly recommend the patisserie across the street for coffee and pastries - it was divine for breakfast each morning!

Dear Liz,
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the stay and the apartment. Totally agree that the patisserie is amazing and starts off the day perfectly! I think Petit Paris on the Grassmarket is linked to it - both run by super friendly french people and definitely worth a visit on your next visit. Have a wonderful summer and we hope that you visit Edinburgh again.
Warmest regards,
Antonia and Jon

This is a superb apartment with a fab kitchen and bathroom! The bed is very comfy. The apartment is perfectly placed giving easy access to the Royal Mile for shopping as well as buses and also the Castle. Sainsbury supermarket is a 5 min walk too for your supplies. You will love it!

“Home away from home”
Reviewed September 20, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This apartment is well equipped, spacious, very comfortable and well located in the historic Grass-market area close to the castle. Most of the sites we wanted to see were within walking distance but there is a bus stop nearby where the Hop-on Hop-Off bus also stops. We were able to access the apartment early after arriving on an early flight. There were items such as milk, butter, cheese, plenty of tea, coffee, sugar and many other small necessities waiting for us which we appreciated very much. It was great to have a washing machine too. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for your lovely review - we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I am pleased that you appreciated the milk and butter although I should say they were only there as I had just been staying at the flat and was able to leave them for you. Normally we are not in Edinburgh and so the lat is cleaned and presented beautifully by our property manager Ashley and consumables need to be purchased from the convenience store in the Grassmarket, 2 minutes away.
We would love to welcome you back on your next visit to this gorgeous city.
Warmest regards,
Antonia and Jon

We enjoyed the appartment fully. It was designed with love and feeling. Everything we needed was supplied. The bunkbed was remarkable comfortable and the doublebed fantasticThe location is on what we thought was Edinburghs most charming street, in the middle of everything in old town, is just perfect to explore the city. The appartment is easy to reach by tram from the airport.
Communication with the owners prior arriving has been great. Quick answers on our questions.
So we eill be back!

Loved this apartment that has a great location for walking everywhere in Edinburgh. Beautiful street with plenty of great shops and restaurants. The apartment was fully furnished with both antiques and modern amenities Great care was taken to give the culture and feel of Edinburgh. The castle is just up the street as is the Royal Mile. Would highly recommend and would visit again. Thank you Jon and Antonia for sharing such a lovely place.

Fantastic location, close to restaurants, attractions, pubs, music, groceries, Airlink and city buses, and trains. Stones throw to castle. The bed was the most comfortable one we found in 3 weeks in Scotland. The kitchen was well appointed and it was nice to have laundry facilities. The negatives were very minimal. There was a strong odor in the hallway of the common area of the building. On the weekends there was some noise on the streets when the bars let out about midnight but it only lasted a short while.

Thank you very much for your kind review. We were made aware after you stayed of an issue with the communal hallway, but that has now been dealt with. We are proud of the fact that the communal stairway is unusually well kept and maintained by one of the building's residents. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh and hope that if you return you will consider staying with us again. Warm regards, Antonia
