Delightful base for Edinburgh explorations

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely base for our long weekend in Edinburgh. Located hard by the picturesque Calton Hill and really close to everything the city has to offer with several really nice shops and restaurants just literally a block away--The Ox was great for a relaxed dinner, Smoke Stack for a nice lunch, and popping into Crombies for a venison roast and Narcissus for some flowers was a fun bit of color. The flat was very nicely furnished, clean, and well-equipped--the photos don't really do it justice. Both the bed in the master and the sofa bed in the sitting room got great reviews from all. The plumbing was great too--lots of hot water even with four people showering up in quick succession each morning. Both the owner and the property management company were very pleasant and helpful; everything went smoothly. We will definitely be back!

So unbelievably great it's hard to praise this flat enough

  • 5 of 5

First of all my wife's cousin who lives in Edinburgh said this apartment was probably a million dollar plus flat. It is decorated like an art gallery. It has everything anyone could ask for: a bath and a half, a nice kitchen, 3 big rooms, which can serve as three private bedrooms. The kitchen is in one of the big rooms. It is well stocked with towels supplies and a lot more.

We walked to princess st, the train station, the Royal Mile and to all the Fringe Festival venues from the apartment easily though some may think it is a little bit north.

The only conceivable drawback for some would be that it is on the third floor and has steep stairs. My wife, my sister and I who stayed here are all in our mid to late 60's and we were able to handle the stairway well. No question that this VRBO has great value.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples staying in Edinburgh over the New Year. The apartment was absolutely beautiful, cozy, and the perfect space for us to explore Edinburgh from.

It took about 10 minutes to walk into the city centre which we liked, as the area was quiet and had a more local feel to it. The owner was extremely kind and helpful, offering his favourites in the area and encouraging us to use whatever was in the cupboard. I highly recommend staying here!

Nunca mejor dicho , fabuloso apartamento . Hace que tu estancia sea perfecta muy bien localizado .

  • 5 of 5

No puedo pasar de aconsejar este apartamento , realmente cumple con todos los requisitos para poder pasar unos días fantásticos en Edimburgo , también decirles que llevo viajando muchos años en hoteles , apartamentos y alojamientos rurales lo que hace que pueda comparar y opinar.

Se encuentra situado más o menos a 15 minutos de todo lo que hay para visitar en Edimburgo , el barrio tanquilo y acogedor , seguro , muy cerca encontramos para alquila el coche y fuimos andando a recogerlo.

Como hemos estado una semana , decidimos alquilarlo dos días para visitar el lago Ness.

El apartamento es muy calentito , con las dos chimeneas en funcionamiento hace que sea más acogedor , un salón junto a la cocina era utilizado para cenar y desayunar y pasar los ratos de tertulia , el otro para dormir mis hijos de 15 y 14 años perfectamente equipado para dormir y espacio más que suficiente para pasar una semana . La habitación matrimonial perfecta y con una cama comodisima . En la cocina te puedes adaptar perfectamente pues tienes el horno y el frigorífico grande que puedes llenarlo en un Tesco, a 5 minutos del apartamento , que visitamos en varias ocasiones .

Para terminar, con mi gran apreciación de este apartamento no olvidar que somos españoles y nuestro dominio del idioma nos paraba pues con Tom y Brea que controla muy bien el español nos hemos sentido muy acogidos y acompañados , teniendo comunicación antes de venir cuando era necesario por correo electronico y perfecto , muy entrañable su acogida .

Bellevue Crescent is ideally suited for the tourist coming to Edinburgh. It is a short walk to the East End of Princes St, with magnificent views available from Calton Hill out to Fife and Leith and along Princes St. There is a wide array of bars and restaurants available in Broughton Street and you are also within walking distance of Leith Walk which has many dining and drinking options. IF you like Italian food, Leith Walk is the place to be! There is a Tesco supermarket close by which is convenient for groceries and smaller grocery stores available close by. The apartment is very handy for the Edinburgh Playhouse which is a popular venue for musical theatre and also accommodates excellent shows during the Edinburgh festival. The apartment is also close to the Water of Leith walkway which is a lovely walk through Edinburgh's industrial history.
