Perfect for exploring Edinburgh and beyond
"This flat was perfect for exploring Old Town and New Town Edinburgh. We could walk to everything imaginable within 15-20 minutes: Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, museums, shops, cathedrals, and dozens of excellent restaurants. The flat was attractive, spotlessly clean, and exactly as described in the listing. The garage parking spot was a real bonus for storing our rental car in between trips out of the city. The owners were very kind and helpful especially after our overnight flight from the USA. We would stay there again anytime and recommend it to anyone."

"A beautiful apartment in a beautiful location! My husband and I and our 14-year old daughter really enjoyed staying in this elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in a gorgeous historical district. The apartment was well equipped and updated in an understated, highly functional way. Bedding was comfortable and high quality (crisp cotton duvets with fluffy down comforter). Dual glazed windows kept out the sounds of the active, fun nightlife just outside the door. I especially enjoyed discovering Thistle Street just off Frederick Street for great women's high end fashion in adorable 18th century buildings. A real treat! I couldn't quite master the espresso machine, but Starbucks is just across the street, as are restaurants, shopping, theatres, etc., and the castle is exactly as you see it in the photos--it is slam bang right in front of the apartment building!
My only caveat would be for vacationers with limited or restricted mobility. While I appreciated the fitness (!) aspect of the 3 flights of spiral stairs, they might be hard for some to navigate. Luckily, it appears the owner has a flat on the ground floor that looks just as nice!"

"We had a most fabulous stay in this Beautiful Old Merchant's House! Not only is the apartment amazing with beautiful and comfortable furnishings, the location is absolutely perfect to explore Edinburgh. Each day of our stay was an easy walk into central Edinburgh where we could visit all the great historic sites, we also easily found groceries and restaurants very near the apartment. Don't miss the wonderful dining experience at L'escargot Bleu just a couple of blocks walk. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone!!"

"This flat is perfect in every way. The location is wonderful, on the border between New and Old Town, you can walk everywhere. The apartment itself is huge, comfortable, and wonderfully furnished. We happened to meet Susan (and Richard) as we arrived, and they are simply delightful people. So, again, I INSIST you stay here - you will not be sorry for a second."
