“Charming apartment close to city centre”
Reviewed 15 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Loved the apartment. The building is old, but that is its charm. The apartment is nicely decorated and furnished. Good sofa, heating, bathroom, kitchen and great beds. There even was a little Christmas tree added in the living room. The double glazed windows in the bedrooms are a good addition. They keep out the cold and noise of the street. Easter road is a lively street with good shops, restaurants and pubs. So you don't have to go far from the apartment if you don't feel like it. But if you do it's just a 10 minute walk to princess street or the bottom of the royal mile.

We loved being in Edinburgh for Hogmanay. And the apartment made it all the more enjoyable.

“Good Location”

person found this review helpful

We have just spent a week here at the apartment. I agree with all the previous reviews that it is well situated for getting around Edinburgh. The buses can be caught just along the road and the bus operations are excellent. It was often very noisy at night as it is situated right on the corner of Easter Road so there was noise from traffic and people. If the windows could be double glazed then a lot of that noise would be eliminated. The flat is spacious, bright and airy and the beds and furniture very comfortable. The only negative points were that the TV reception was poor, this was pointed out to us on arrival, and it was not possible to obtain the basic BBC or ITV terrestrial channels. We cooked a couple of meals in the kitchen, but the oven took a very long time to come to temperature.
Apart from this we liked the apartment very much but would probably not return due to the street noise.

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed the location of the apartment. Both bedrooms have now been double glazed so there are no problems with noise from the street. We have also added cable TV which has a wide range of channels available. Kitchen is fully equipped with gas hob, oven and microwave and everything you need. Thanks again for reviewing

“satisfying accomodations”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We are a family of 4 who spent 4 nights,At first the building looked dismal and the semi -circle stairs to the first floor had to be maneuvered carefully with our suitcases. We soon realized that most of the buildings have that look. The caretaker,Janice,was waiting for us and kindly helped with our suitcases,
The apartment was just as advertised,tastefully decorated and very clean. We enjoyed sitting by the window in the living room and looking at the scenes outside.The kitchen had all the necessary appliances but we only used it for breakfast as there were many restaurants nearby.The beds were comfortable and the heater worked fine.
The location is good, buses pass right in front of the building. We enjoyed our stay,. Thanks for providing such good accommodations.

Thanks for your review and we are glad you enjoyed the apartment. As with many apartments in Edinburgh, we are located in a traditional tenement building over 120 years old which have their own charm. We are glad you enjoyed the apartment decor and outlook from the large bay window - it really is a place to sit and watch the world go by. There are now many good local cafes, delicatessens and eateries. Our own particular favourite is the !anna House just up the street from the apartment. Glad you had a good stay and thanks again for taking the time to review.

Thanks for reviewing our apartment. Glad you enjoyed the location which has a vibrant community feel to it. We have since installed double glazing in the bedrooms so noise from the street is no longer an issue but you still have the convenience of the bus service.
