“OK apartment - with some drawbacks (and no internet connection)”
Reviewed August 23, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed at this apartment for a few nights, and it was OK but had some flaws. The location of the apartment is good - within 20 minutes' walk to Princes street and with frequent bus connections to everywhere in the city. There is a supermarket and a few takeaway places within a 2-minute walk so there were enough dining options. The apartment is generally well-equipped, with a decent kitchen where you can cook, comfortable furniture and even some books and toys. The owner was also nice.

However, there were a few significant drawbacks to the apartment:
- Do not count on having an Internet connection! The web site says that it's "slow", but in fact the desktop computer in the apartment never managed to connect to the Internet, and the wifi signal is unstable and regularly disappears for extended periods, so you cannot really use the wifi for more than occasional short periods (we reported this to the owner during our stay but she failed to fix the problem).
- The apartment it old, and while it is well maintained there are still some issues (e.g. squeaky floors, unstable water pressure and others).
- The living room (where the extra sofa is) is facing a main street and has hugh windows with light curtains. This means that sleepers in this room suffer from noise throughout the night and from bright light early in the morning.
- Climbing up 2 long staircases with heavy luggage is not easy...

Overall our stay here was OK, but for the high price that we paid I believe there are better alternatives.

Dear Ms. Sellers

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with the TV reception. We have had some problems with that due to high winds and the aerial therefore not working as well as it should. We have since switched to Virgin cable tv so we shouldn't have those problems again in the future.

Hope to see you again next time you visit Edinburgh.
