“Loved this apartment!”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This lovely apartment is SO well situated we could sit in the living room and be serenaded by bagpipes from The Royal Mile below. The Statue in front of St. Giles across the street looks almost straight in the windows, windows that offer views, views, views. The entire apartment is very bright and quit large. It is well decorated. We loved the hard wood floors. While the couches are slightly weather warn, they didn't bother us a bit. The building is charmingly old, and you will feel like a local staying here. I can't imagine a better place to stay to enjoy such a wonderful city! Even if you want to spend the evening in you are still in the midst of it all!

“Fantastic Apartment and Location”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I loved the location of this apartment. It is very centrally located in the Old Town. The furnishings and apartment are beautiful and very comfortable. Will definitely stay here again when I return to Edinburgh.

“great location and value for money”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

THis apartment is in a great location overlooking St Giles and definately great value for money. They kindly let us in early and the introduction was really helpful. The front living area is very light with lovely big windows and the double glazing keeps out the street noise. The main bedroom is a good size with a king sized bed, although I found a bit too hard. The kitchen is again bright and airy with adaquate basic cooking facilities and good washing machine. The bathroom is very tired with an old bath and shower over and the water pressure as you would expect is very low. We were all in all comfortable and I think you would find it hard to get better value in this location.

“Nice apartment, lots of stairs!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband, three year old daughter, and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's in an historic building with a tons of stairs to walk up to get to the flat. I didn't mind them at all when we were walking up and down them without luggage, but when we did have it, it was a workout! The apartment was clean and full of character. The TV room is large with high ceilings and an excellent view of the Royal Mile and St. Giles cathedral. The extra sofa bed was nice and comfortable.

Excellent location.

Shower was nice, but not enough water pressure. Might be caused by the age of the building, I'm not too sure.

When we first arrived we had no light bulbs in the hall or bedroom, but we called the manager at around 8 in the evening (when we realized) and he came right out and fixed the problem.

Would definitely recommend!
