perfect except staircase. good location, very clean and cosy. the bathroom was good but the draining system of shower was not good, water accumulated when showering. very well equipped.
Making our way into Edinburgh for the first time was quite the daunting task. The easiest way to find the flat is to come up Lothian to Grassmarket. Don't try to find your way to Cowgate.
In anycase, after picking up the keys and unloading the luggage from our car, my husband went to find parking (closest parking goes for ~£24/day!) and then we made our way up the spiral staircase with our huge, American luggage. (Note: we've already decided to pack lighter next time!)
As we made it up to the flat, a skeleton key and a quick-bolt were the only things keeping us from what I can only describe as luxurious accommodations inside. A FULL sized living room faced the street with two large, operational windows. A beautiful view of Grassmarket and the old Edinburgh was our scenery. (There is wifi and sat TV, if you need it.) The kitchen was large enough to eat in, and it is fully appointed with small refrigerator, oven, stove, toaster, electric kettle, dishwasher and a clothes-washer and dryer. If you need to hang your wash, there is even a rack that you can raise or lower for convenience.
The two bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, with opening windows and closing shutters. And the bathroom is more than adequate, it's lovely. The finishes in this flat are top-of the line and beautiful. It definitely appears to be professionally designed.
There was shopping, restaurants, pubs, bars, and nightclubs all within a VERY short walk, the bus stop was within a few hundred feet, and there are tours that you can book that take you all over the town.
In the three days we were guests of Sean, we saw ALL of Edinburgh, many museums and monuments, and her majesty, the Queen (Twice!!!).
This is a fantastic flat, and we can't wait to come back for a visit. (Next time, we'll have much less luggage!)

The flat was really well appointed, stylish and spotless. Sean the owner was very accommodating regarding parking and picking up and dropping off the keys. Once in the city you won't need the car again, this is a walking city. There are too many restaurants to mention, but there are many in the Grassmarket and there's a small convenience store. There are stone steps up to the flat but our two children managed. We stayed two nights, and it was noisy outside both nights.
