This was our very first visit to Edinburgh.
We really enjoyed staying in this apartment for 4 days. Excellent location next to the Grassmarket, close to the castle, the National Library, the Writers Museum and the Scottish National Gallery. Supermarket approximately 300 meters from the apartment. Very nice restaurants in Victoria Street.
The apartment itself is space, cozy, with very stylish and tasteful decoration. Everything is very functional and the bed is heaven.
Many thanks to the landlords, Jon and Antonia, for being so helpful.

“Lovely historic apartment in central location”
Reviewed January 5, 2018 for a stay in September 2017

people found this review helpful

We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay in this beautiful historic apartment. The apartment was well equipped with everything needed for a home away from home (with a little bit more character ;-). Jon and Antonia were very accomodating and the booking, check in and out process was seamless. We loved watching the bustling street life from the windows. A couple of the nights were a little noisy until about 1am but the wooden shutters helped to dampen this and the majority of the weeknights were quiet.

“Fantastic apartment and amazing location.”

Jon and Antonia's apartment is so welcoming and comfortable with wonderful, quirky touches. The location is unbeatable. Edinburgh is such a beautiful city and the apartment's location allows you to walk to all the amazing sights with ease. We had no trouble finding our way around and were gobsmacked at the history and culture everywhere you looked. There was some noise at night from the busy street below but nothing too bad especially once the amazing wooden shutters were closed. The apartment has everything you could possibly need and we stayed for seven nights. This was our first experience with an overseas apartment and it set the bar extremely high.

“Staying in the heart of Edinburgh!”
Reviewed July 10, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

The Midbow was a perfect location for us.Just in the heart of Edinburgh, with all the attractions around, all kind of shops,at least three supermarkets nearby, bus and tram stop from/to the airport within a 5 minutes walking.
What we loved of Midbow was not only the location, but also the interior design and the atmospehere: unique piece of furniture and paintings. Every single piece from table mates to paintings, looked chosen and not just casual. And you did feel to be in Edinburgh and not in somewhere else place in the world. The assistance for the chek-in/check-out and all the necessary information on the home appliances has been excellent, as the cleaning.
We do hope to come back to Midbow next time we stop in Edinburgh.

“Fantastic old world apartment in a central location”
Reviewed May 16, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

person found this review helpful

Fantastic apartment in a great location. A proper old town residence with beautiful teak furniture and a fully equipped kitchen. It worked well as a family base for a long weekend and we would definitely go back. On the flip side the central location did mean it was a bit noisy at night. For anyone visiting it I would highly recommend the patisserie across the street for coffee and pastries - it was divine for breakfast each morning!

Dear Liz,
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the stay and the apartment. Totally agree that the patisserie is amazing and starts off the day perfectly! I think Petit Paris on the Grassmarket is linked to it - both run by super friendly french people and definitely worth a visit on your next visit. Have a wonderful summer and we hope that you visit Edinburgh again.
Warmest regards,
Antonia and Jon
