“Immaculate apartment, perfectly placed for the sights of Edinburgh”
Reviewed March 10, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

It would be difficult to find an apartment that was better placed to view the sights of the old city. Overlooking the Royal Mile, it is less than ten minutes walk from the main station, the castle, and several museums. Dynamic Earth, the Parliament building and the main shopping streets of the new town are also within easy reach.

All of the souvenir shops are close by, and there is a Sainsburys local just round the corner that is open till late every day.

Internally the apartment is in excellent condition with beautiful furnishings and wooden floors. The beds are comfortable with bedding and plenty of towels provided. Heating and WIFI both worked well.

Shahid the owner was very friendly and quickly answered any questions that we had.

Just a couple of things to mention...

- The apartment is up five flights of stairs and there is no lift. While this wasn't a problem for us, if you had very small children or a pushchair you might find it hard work.

- Being in the city centre, the Royal Mile is busy and can be quite noisy late into the night with party-goers, street musicians, dustcarts, and roadsweeper lorries. Again this wasn't a problem for us at all but if you don't sleep easily you might consider staying somewhere out of the centre of the city.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and would certainly stay there again.

“Fabulous apartment on the Royal Mile”
Reviewed November 23, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Lovely apartment which was very comfortable and perfectly situated for all the attractions, to include people watching from the window!
Shahid the owner was really helpful when we initially enquired about the apartment, and again when I needed to amend our dates.
We were a little apprehensive at how much it would cost to park our car, but with a little forward planning we paid £29 Fri-Sun.
Only one thing stops me awarding 5 stars - the shower! The best I could get was icy cold with the occasional blast of tepid.

“Fantastic location, but slightly disappointed”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

After a mix up with the keys and having to wait a couple of hours in the restaurant below we managed to get into the apartment, to find a beautiful spacious apartment with amazing views over the Royal Mile.
Our stay was great other than a few annoying things, like the thermostat on the shower wasn't working so the shower went from hot to cold instantly, making things interesting, the landing light wasn't working, making the mirror at the top of the stairs useless in the evening before you went out and there was no welcome essentials so we would advise you to stock up on a couple of things before hand and to use your phone to find out local information as there is none in the apartment.

Hi Kelly,

Thanks for your review and I am glad that the apartment was as you thought, bright, spacious and centrally located.

I am sorry for the minor hiccup getting the keys and the small annoying things you found with the apartment. All should be fine for your next visit.

Thanks once again for staying and I wish you many more happy travels.

Regards
Shahid
