Great Location, clean, friendly owner!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment overlooks the Royal Mile and is near the top. So you do have to navigate several stairs to get to the unit but what is inside issue delightful. We'll were there for Fringe and every evening, we sat by the large windows and enjoyed the street performances! Ourselves family of four was extremely comfortable. Highly recommend this unit!

Great location & Quiet, Spacious, & Bright

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Owner was quick to reply and answer questions and requests. Living area very large and bright. Great location with most tour starting points within 1 block distance. Train station 7 minute walk. 3 friendly local music pubs only 1 block away plus others close by. Grocery nearby as listed by owner. Washer/Dryer was very useful and never ran out of hot water during our stay. Just be aware of steps to the 3rd floor but wasn't a problem for us. Would recommend this apartment and I would stay here again.

Nice apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. just a short walk from the train station and very close to the royal mile. Plenty to do close by with street performers right outside the window for some non-tv entertainment at night. The apartment was high enough off the street, to where there wasn't much if any noise inside. Overall, great place, would stay here again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

A large, clean flat ideal for two couples or a family. Within walking distance to tourist sites, museums, and a number of pubs and restaurants. Location is a bit noisy on the Royal Mile but that’s to be expected if you want to be in the middle of everything. Individuals with mobility issues or difficulty handling heavy suitcases should be aware that this building has no lift. To reach the apartment, you must climb five flights of stairs with another inside the front door. Other than that, a good stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Bruce. The building is listed and over 250 years old so a lift is not possible. Shahid
