“VERY COMFORTABLE”
Reviewed 1 November 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We rented this apartment for 6 days last July and we really loved it. The apartment is even bigger than it seems in the photographs, with new and comfortable furniture and very nice decoration. The kitchen was nice and big, the bathroom was specially big and all the appliances worked properly. The only thing negative was that sometimes in the living room we have no wifi signal, because the router was in the entrance hall and apparently the signal wasn't strong enough. But in the bedroom or getting near to the hall it was ok.
We arrived from Edinburgh airport with bus 35, which has a special place for the luggage, and left us nearer than the Airlink service. at Canongate stop, in the Royal Mile (and plus it is cheaper!); from the bus stop we took the passage that starts at the corner with the Starbucks coffee (Chrichton's close), and walked less than 300 m to the main building door.
We made the reservation through Vacation Rental Scotland, and contacted the owner, Karin, by email, and everything was very easy. The price was very convenient (we had to pay in advance) and there was not security deposit.
We left Edinburgh from Waverley Station, approximately 15 minutes walk from the apartment (leave a few minutes more if you walk with luggage, because the Royal Mile is a little way uphill :) ).
We have free entrance to a pool and a spa, but we didn't go, because we wanted to know as much of Edinburgh as we could in our few days there.
We definitely recommend this apartment.

“Great location, comfortable flat”

This was a great flat for our visit to Edinburgh. We are a family of 4 - our teen and younger child shared the sofa bed in the living room and we had the bedroom. The flat is at one end of the Royal Mile by the Dynamic Earth, the Parliament building, and Holyrood Castle. It was the perfect location from which to explore Old Town (and New Town for that matter, if you don't mind walking a bit or using public transportation). The use of the pool/fitness center next door was a bonus.

Liked best: Location
Liked least: We could have used a bit more basics (such as salt & pepper) for cooking in, but that was a minor issue. The elevator was out, which isn't an issue for us, but would be difficult for those with very young children or very old or disabled people.

Thanks for your feedback; this is much appreciated. We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the apartment and Edinburgh, even if the hills are a but trying! Sorry to hear that your jeans took a while to dry; we can recommend a service wash at the local laundrette (Kleen Care at 7 Cowgatehead) if you prefer to have clothes ready within a few hours. We have passed your feedback about basic supplies and about a mat for the shower/bath to the owner, who has remedied this. Best regards, Martin, Vacation Rentals Scotland

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and your tip about the park and ride is particularly helpful. As you know, since Edinburgh is a compact city, most sights are within walking distance and there's an excellent bus service in the city. It's nice to hear of guests who have left their car at the the Sheriffhall park-and-ride car park for a few days.

Best regards
