Great place to stay in Edinburgh, as long as you can carry your luggage up three flights of circular stairs, which was no problem for us. Perfect location, and lovely inside and out. Comfortable, roomy. A tiny bit noisy at night, but not a problem with earplugs (or sleep in the back bedroom), and it quiets down eventually. Sean was great. Definitely recommend!
From the welcome from our host to the highly impressive and well-furnished apartment, this was a most relaxing stay in Scotland's capital city. The spiral staircase and previously mentioned hubbub around the Grassmarket area adds to its attraction in the very centre of the Old Town with bars, restaurants, live music and public transportation all very much on tap. Sean was happy to assist with us leaving luggage at Budget Backpackers before and after our accommodation was available. The apartment was squeaky clean, well maintained and we all slept very well in the comfortable beds with the rain shower most useful after a warm sunny day spent exploring the sights and sounds of Edinburgh. We would love to return someday.
Sean and his friends were very friendly and welcoming. The location is just lovely. It can be a bit noisy in the evening, but all in all not a huge issue.
Awesome apartment in terrific location. Sean was a great host: our stay couldn't have gone more smoothly! Thanks!
Location is amazing! Entrance via the Grassmarket and third floor views over the hustle and bustle of one of Edinburgh's most historic landmarks. Yes...as per previous reviews this does mean there's a bit of noise but it didn't bother us in the slightest. Lovely restaurants and cafes on the doorstep - literally! 10 minute walk to the Castle and a couple of minutes takes you to the National Museum (great for kids). Two of the Edinburgh Bus tours have stops just outside and visit all the attractions if you don't want to walk. There are steep stairs up to the flat however we met the occupants of the flat 2 above who are in their 70's / 80's so not unmanageable! Flat owner met us on arrival and was extremely personable and helpful. We will be back.
