“Great apartment with a great location!!!”
Reviewed March 31, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in Greyfriars Bobby Apartment!!! It was warm and cozy, and well equipped! Our stay began on Easter Sunday and Axel even provided some Easter chocolates! The loaf of bread and milk were an added bonus!
This apartment is in an excellent location for strolling around Old Town. We were able to hear some live music at Sandy Bells...literally steps away from the entrance to the apartment building.
We would highly recommend this apartment!!!
Thank you again Axel!

We are just completing a 3 night stay in this apartment with our 2 year old son. Fantastic location to explore the sights of Edinburgh by foot. The apartment is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Lovely gesture on the part of Axel with bread, milk and orange juice available on our arrival plus offer of a travel cot. Easy to follow directions to obtain the keys.
Would highly recommend this apartment. Some street noise from enthusiasts visiting greyfriars Bobby after the pub but it was short lived and it was the weekend!

“Prime location-spotless flat!”

This was our second stay in Greyfriars flat #4 and we loved it-again!! The flat is spotless and well stocked for a bit of breakfast or a little bit of a snack. The location couldn't be much better with the National Museum across the street and Greyfriars Kirk in your backyard-both locations perfect for wandering through. It's a very easy walk to The Royal Mile with lots of restaurants and pubs along the way-so many options! The owner is very easy to work with and we really enjoyed our stay!

Spent 3 nights here in June...the flat is well equipped and very comfortable. Lovely large kitchen overlooking Greyfriars Kirkyard...lounge and bedroom overlook the National Museum of Scotland. Perfectly located for Grassmarket, Royal Mile, the Meadows and Princess Street. Plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby. Will definitely stay here again.

“fabulous long weekend !”
Reviewed June 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A lovely apartment, nipping clean with a lovely feel to it. Very central location(£3.80) in taxi from Waverley. Some late night noise but hey you're in a capital city ! close the shutters and relax. Beautiful view over churchyard from the sunny kitchen window.- best of both worlds. 2 minutes form restaurants of the grassmarket. Excellent communication with owner, will certainly go again and have already recommended to work colleagues.

“Perfect relaxation”
Reviewed May 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

My girlfriend and I visited Edinburgh on the May Bank Holiday weekend. Axel the apartment owner was very accommodating with our checkin and check out of the apartment. We were provided with milk, bread, butter and OJ to start us off. The cupboards were well stocked, rooms were spacious and clean...we were left wanting for nothing. A very lovely apartment and we will be recommending to friends and family, as well as maybe returning ourselves some time soon.
