Edinburgh, Scotland
Located in a quiet street just off Morningside Road this is a great location for anyone looking for a city break without the bustle and noise of a city centre location. The area is serviced by buses running every 10 minutes to the City Centre and Old Town just a short ride away. The apartment is a 1930 art deco design with all amenities that a self-catering guest will need.

We love Morningside and with the efficient and frequent city buses, all of Edinburgh is virtually at your doorstep. Also, it is so convenient to have the Waitrose grocery store just a block away and, of course, Canny Man's pub nearby. John, Reta and Steven are all very friendly and accommodating and helpful as landlords. There was a small building...

We spent 5 days at Retas Apartment. The flat is easy to reach and lovely equiped to a very high standard. Everything was clean and tidy. A perfect place in the middle of morningside. Nearby you will find lots of nice restaurants and shops. The next bus station is just around the corner. Highly recommended!!

Management response:

Thank you for your review. Morningside is a lovely area with so many cafes, bars, restaurant and shops to explore. The bus service is great to, with many bus routes passing along Morningside Road to the city centre there is always one just about to arrive. Edinburgh is a small city with many green spaces creating beautiful walks. We often...
