Recent Edinburgh reviews

  • Wonderful week!

    "Perfect location. Close to downtown yet on a quiet street. Close to public transportation including tram to airport. Very kind and helpful owners. Very reasonably priced. Comfortably furnished. I was traveling alone yet it would be equally comfortable with two guests. Would definitely stay here again."

  • Wonderful base for seeing Edinburgh!

    "Our family of 4 spent 2 nights in Lynn's apartment - just a 10 minute walk from the castle and very centrally located to all major sights. The apartment is cozy but has everything one needs for a comfortable stay. Lynn is very helpful in helping get you settled in - even providing some basic supplies for the first morning's breakfast. The area is just outside the Old Town - and the apartment is in a relatively new apartment building around the corner from the Hilton and close to several mini-supermarkets and numerous cafes. Not as fancy an area as New Town, but OK. Pictures in VRBO are quite representative of the place."

  • Lovely Georgian Flat - Historic setting Edinburgh

    "We rented this flat during our visit to the Fringe festival this year. It was a bit of a hike- at least 25 minutes to the main venues, but we truly liked being out of the fray since we were there for 9 nights. The apartment is lovely- high ceilings, beautifully decorated and enough kitchen supplies for the light cooking we did in the am and an occasional lunch. We really liked the fact that the owner also provided soap for the laundry and dishwasher, the sink and bathrooms and a nice welcome package of local specialties. Tea and coffee were on hand and the basics which was so appreciated! so hard to stock everyone's apartment when you are traveling. We left goodies in return- Olive oil, nice shampoos from hotels etc. The front room was a bit noisy on the cobblestone street but we were grateful for the extra bed as the two other bedrooms in back have queen or king sized beds. The neighborhood is quiet with upscale restaurants and small markets are easily accessible. This year it was a rainy Fringe, but the days that I didn't feel like walking in the downpour I was happy staying at the apartment and working as it was peaceful and charming. The owner was lovely and accessible via email and Natasha (apartment manager) was readily available, though we never had to call her! The WIFI worked very well, and the neighbors were fairly quiet (and we returned that favor to them!). Would go back in a heart beat! I would recommend this for people who like to walk and are respectful of furniture and high end apartments. I would not suggest this for young children as there are delicate lamps and it is a quiet building- also the walk would be too far for them- but the park is close! Well- behaved teens are great here as they usually don't mind the walk to center of Edinburgh either. Ideal for active older people. Taxis cost about £6.50 GBP to the castle area up on the hill."

  • No need to shop around, you just found the perfect Edinburgh house

    "From my initial enquiry to the whole experience, this fantastic, old merchant's house in Gayfield Square couldn't get much better. Fantastic location, close to pubs, restaurants, supermarkets, great coffee (try Artisan in Broughton St) and all just a stroll to Princes Street. You will love the genteel location, quality furnishings, linen and great gourmet kitchen. It is beautifully done and managed by owner Robin, who is extremely responsive and helpful. Robin makes great suggestions for eating out, which we did our best to get through during our four day stay. You won't regret making the decision to stay here."
