Great apartment, perfect for an Edinburgh stay

  • 5 of 5

Really great, clean apartment. There is some wear and tear but totally expected as it seems so popular. Hot water was a bit limited but there was four of us staying - we didn't really mind this. Morning walk up Arthur's Seat made this a perfect location.

Shahid is excellent owner, responding quickly and efficiently to all my queries and requests. A couple more wine glasses wouldn't go a miss ;)

Great Location, nice layout

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable. Outstanding location with easy access to points of interest, restaurants and stores. The owner of the property responded quickly to a question about the hot water. The concierge in the lobby kindly helped us get a cab when we were leaving.
