“Great apartment, location, facilities, owner, city all spot-on!”

Great apartment, located perfectly for exploring Edinburgh by foot. It is a casual walk from the train station and we found our way around so easily thanks to the extensive selection of maps, sightseeing brochures and public transport info that were supplied in the apartment. Edinburgh is fantastic for culture, whisky and vegan food.
Apartment was light and airy, spacious, modern and well-equipped. Kitchen had everything we needed and more. Nice option to have a log fire in the living room. Comfy bed, smart bathroom.

We couldn't have asked for more and the owner was very helpful. Highly recommended

“It felt like home!”

This was the best decision about accommodations I could have made! The flat was spotlessly clean. It was (unexpectedly) stocked with milk, bread, butter, orange juice and some chocolates, so having something to eat the first night was handled. Axel was a delight to correspond with in making the arrangements and was prompt with answers to any questions that I had. Perfect location to explore Edinburgh, close to transport and groceries. Lots of restaurants and pubs close by. Actually a very quiet location, also. I will definitely return when next in Edinburgh.

Liked best: The bright, open, airy feel of the flat. Felt like home. Quiet in spite of being in popular area.
Liked least: Cannot think of any negatives.

This is a fabulous one bed apartment in a fantastic location within walking distance of the Royal Mile. Situated in the middle of lots of great restaurants and cafes and with a view over Greyfriars Kirk.

The little touches like the orange juice, bread, butter and jam supplied made this feel like a really special visit.

“Great apartment with a great location!!!”
Reviewed 1 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in Greyfriars Bobby Apartment!!! It was warm and cozy, and well equipped! Our stay began on Easter Sunday and Axel even provided some Easter chocolates! The loaf of bread and milk were an added bonus!
This apartment is in an excellent location for strolling around Old Town. We were able to hear some live music at Sandy Bells...literally steps away from the entrance to the apartment building.
We would highly recommend this apartment!!!
Thank you again Axel!
