“Lovely wee flat - great location!”
Reviewed 19 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Really enjoyed the view of busy Grassmarket - lots going on. Nice relaxed atmosphere in the local pubs. Peace and quiet when the windows are closed. Loved it. Thank you Gill.

“An absolute gem of a place!!”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This place is unbelievable!! It's location, price and mod cons makes this flat an absolute gem. I was preparing myself to pay between €600-€1000 for a basic hotel room in Edinburgh when my girlfriend found this place for less than half the max I was willing to pay. We had an early flight in and as there was nobody staying there the night previous we were able to go in and get settled at 9am (most hotels will not entertain you until 3pm). Directions on how to access the flat from Gill were second to none. As mentioned in other reviews, the 3 flights of spiral stairs with a heavy bag or indeed that last pint that you should not have had can be quite strenuous, but once you turn the key in the door they are forgotten. The decor and fresh smell in the flat mad it so homely. Anything you needed you could nearly bet everything you own was in a press somewhere in the flat. The complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates were a nice touch with their little jumpers. On meeting Gill the first evening we were give some excellent advice on where to eat and drink. So much so on 2 of our 3 night stay we are in the same Italian restaurant. The location of this flat is perfect. A lovely stroll down to princes street and indeed the castle. Grassmarket itself is quiet lively and biddy mulligans right across the road was lovely to go for a bit of lunch and pint of beer. Over all this flat is by far nicer than any hotel with it's relaxed comfortable atmosphere and is perfect for a stay in Edinburgh.

Wonderfully located, close to all the Grass market dining and drinking spots. Easy walk to Princess Street and Railway Station area. Well appointed and we enjoyed 3 nights here.

“Fantastic Studio Apartment in the Grassmarket”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Just back from a two night stay and can't praise the apartment enough. If it was possible to mark it higher I would. It has everything you require, very comfortable with pubs, restaurants and everything you need on your doorstep. We will definitely be back.
