5/5 Excellent

Weekend trip for anniversary
We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary in Edinburgh. This apartment is in the heart of the old town, a 2 minute walk to the royal mile and the key collection point. It is also very close to Arthur’s Seat and there are great views of the mountain from the window. The apartment was very clean and tidy when we moved in, with a cosy living room, kitchen, double bedroom, shower room and toilet. It’s perfect for any couple who would like to explore Edinburgh but also to stay in and have dinners in the flat. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, which may be an issue for some but we saw this as a great exercise opportunity! There is also a pretty communal garden terrace. Nina was very accommodating and helpful when needed and even left us some wine and shortbreads when we arrived which was very sweet. We highly recommend this apartment and would book again if we returned to Edinburgh.

3/5 Okay

Good location but lots of steps to rental
The communication with the manager and check in process was good. The location is really good, with so many places within easy walking distance. The unit was clean and stocked. Please note that there are over 60 steps to reach the front door of the unit, which we didn't realize in advance. The shower is VERY slow to drain and there's a note mentioning it when you arrive. Overall a good unit if you don't mind ALL those steps.

5/5 Excellent

Centrally located gem
Perfect flat for 2 people to stay and enjoy everything Edinburgh has to offer! Amazing location - short walks to the castle and Holyrood house, and right in the middle of all the Fringe venues. Lovely hosts as well.
