Second time we have stayed here and hopefully not our last. Perfect location, great size apartment which had everything we needed. Jon was a great help too when required.
Many thanks Reza, we hope to be back again!
We stayed here for a weekend with a group of ladies to celebrate our friends hen do. This flat could not have been more perfect for us.
The location is ideal as it's just a 5 minute walk to Princes Street and 2 minutes to Multrees Walk and Harvey Nichols.
The flat is spacious and comfortable with a lived in feel which we loved as we felt instantly at home.
Reza the owner is easy to deal with and is very friendly and the manager John was willing to help whenever necessary (even on a Saturday when we couldn't work the oven!)
On top of all this the price is incredible for a flat of this size in such an amazing location!
I would recommend this property to anyone who and would go back in an instant.
We stayed here as a group of guys on a weekend in Edinburgh and this place was perfect. It had three bedrooms with double beds in each and a couple of sofa beds and loads of space its one of the top story apartments of a large town house.
The place isn't a shiny polished hotel room and maybe it is a bit tired in places but that said its a fraction of the price of any hotel in town it also is in an incredible location just a couple of minutes from the town centre. I think anyone who expects to get something as nice a 5 start hotel and still put up 7-8 people for about 25 quid per person per night is a bit deluded. It's certainly nicer than any travel lodge I've ever been to and cleaner and tidier. The place is easy to find and organising the keys etc was really straight forward.
The only thing we found to be a bit of a nuisance was only having one bathroom/toilet for 7 people but it wasn't the end of the world.
All in all I'd definitely recommend! I'd say this suits groups of 20-30ish who are looking for an economical but nice place to stay.

We stayed here for three weeks. When we arrived the place was quite filthy but it was cleaned somewhat after I requested. Even after the second cleaning, furniture was still soiled with food smears and pots still dirty inside the cabinet. The ironing board is foul with stains - looks like someone vomited on it. The carpet is very old and I don't believe that it's ever been properly cleaned. The sofas are worn and aging. Of the three TV's provided, only one worked properly. The main TV in the living room has a permanent 4 inch wide digital stripe running through the screen. I informed the manager (who told me he informed the owner ) of the broken TV. Nothing was done to remedy the problem. Everything in the place is flimsy and half broken. There are electric cords tangled and strewn about the place. The kitchen is poorly stocked with worn out and useless cookware. All the knives are rusting. The stove/oven is junk. We could not use the oven because the numbers and info on the dials wore away years ago. So, you can't tell the oven temperature or if it's going to broil or bake your food. The stove is gas flame so that was usable. There are no mixing bowls and some pots are missing lids. Also, they don't put mattress pads / protectors on the beds. So, if someone has an accident and soiled the mattress, all there is between you and the last persons's mess is the thinnest of thin sheets. My impression is that this is a student rental from September to May and then a vacation rental in the summer. We were there on business and it was not suitable. It's a shame because it's a great location and it could be a wonderful rental. Unfortunately, it's one of those places that's good as a party/ thrasher/ crash pad. It's way over priced for the condition that it's in. I took photos of the filth and chaos. Unfortunately, trip advisor will not let me post photos in this review.
Wonderful large apartment that held 8 people quite easily. Had slight concerns before arrival on the single bathroom between 8 but the separate sinks in 2 of the bedrooms helped enormously so there were no issues at all.
All the rooms were a great size with enough storage/wardrobes all around. Flat had great character with enough storage for everyone. All towels and linen provided too.
Location was perfect and within 5 minutes you were into the Old Town.
Finally Jon (lettings manager) was a great help, sorted out any issues I had instantly and was there waiting for me upon arrival.
Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be back.
