Nice unit

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for use of washer/dryer combo. The dryer part wasn't working so had to hang out clothes over rack. Owner came by to help so was attentive to our call. Repair time didn't work with our schedule. Well supplied apartment. Clean and modern. Would stay there again.

Great place but tired

  • 3 of 5

The location is almost perfect, just five minutes from the centre, there's even a bus every half hour out side the building. There's a Tesco local just up the road.

We heard no noise from the neighbours and it's a quiet location but there is a school yard at the back of the buildings facing the bedroom windows so it's a bit lively around 8.45 for twenty minutes.

The layout is ideal for two couples, two bathrooms providing privacy for all and the open plan cooking/living area makes for sociable mealtimes. The beds are good though a king size would be better than the double provided. Whilst there is plenty of hot water the shower in the double goes cold from time to time, this is an ongoing problem which others have mentioned. The ensuite is in need of refurbishment, cracked floor tiles and discoloured grouting. The crockery and utensils need replacing, chipped plates and scratched pans. The apartment could do with decorating. Wifi works well. The lift is reliable and the parking place convenient. All was very clean. The owner was contactable and responsive.

If the problems were resolved this would be 4 star, 5 star in school holidays.

Great location and great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Family and I stayed here for a few days and found everything to be wonderful. The location was just a couple minutes walk to The Royal Mile and King Arthurs Seat (kids wanted to hike it). Rooms were clean and all essentials were provided. All in all a great find in Edinburgh. Would happily stay here again.
