About Katy King
I'm a busy mum who loves travelling. I've enjoyed lots of self-catering holidays myself, in many brilliant properties (and occasionally cursed the lack of a bread knife or insufficient numbers of cups). We started doing holiday lets in 2017 and have added another apartment in 2018. We have equipped our apartments based on what we like to see when we travel - hopefully we've thought of everything, but appreciate any feedback if there's anything you think is missing. Very much enjoying the experience so far! I'm lucky enough to be able to say Edinburgh is my home town, and love welcoming guests from all over the world to share our beautiful city.
Why Katy King chose West End
We lived here for many years before having kids and moving to the suburbs and it's a great apartment! It couldn't be more conveniently located, and is comfortable and spacious.

Shortbreak in Edinburgh
Lovely flat in excellent location. Very quiet despite busy road outside
Thanks Rebecca. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We're really lucky with the main rooms being to the back. It means it's quiet despite being so conveniently located.

Kind host in lovely apartment
We really enjoyed our stay, helped by a number of helpful actions and information from Katy and her team. The apprartment is really well located, on the airport line and walking distance from town centre. It is beautifully decorated and really clean.
Beautiful apartment exactly as described
We have just spent a lovely week enjoying the Edinburgh Fringe and staying at Katy's apartment.
The rooms are exactly as pictured and the Master bedroom & single bedroom are really beautiful and comfortable. The lounge is also very attractive and massive, and the kitchen/diner is large, clean and with all modern appliances as well as a large dining table and ample cutlery, crockery and utensils.
The property is located opposite Haymarket station and the tram or bus from the airport stops right outside, taking about 20 minutes. A couple of times, when feeling a bit lazy, we did take the train into the centre, which takes 3 minutes, comes every 10 minutes & costs £2.70 return. Generally we walked everywhere - less than 10 minutes to the bottom of Princes Street, and perhaps 25 minutes to the Royal Mile. We also walked to Dean Village, a beautiful, tranquil spot on the river Leith, which only took 10 minutes.
There are plenty of good cafes and restaurants nearby & a couple of supermarkets very close.
Katy and Magda were excellent hosts and always replied to any queries almost immediately.
We throughly recommend this property
Tastefully presented, exceptionally well equipped, great location
We were staying in Edinburgh for 4 nights with the main focus being the 6 Nations Rugby match. Katy's apartment was just perfect for the occasion. Well-equipped, clean, tastefully decorated, the apartment was located ideally for the airport, stadium, local amenities and sight-seeing attractions. Thank you Katy for the information provided both in the apartment and for your help before we arrived. Absolutely no question we would recommend Katy as a host and the apartment as a place to stay
Thanks so much for the lovely review Colin. Glad you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. Hope you were happier with the rugby result than the locals too!
Ideal location for a rugby weekend, or any other trip to Edinburgh but a bit noisy
The apartment is adequate for a short stay but situated in a tenement on Haymarket you hear all the comings and goings up and down the common stairwell and all the traffic noise from the main road. OK but wouldn't rave about it.
Thanks for your review Raymond. Sorry you found it noisy; during big rugby weekends the street and stair can sometimes get unusually noisy. I've always found the fact that the bedrooms are away from the street to mean they are generally quieter. We hope you found the apartment features and furnishings were pleasant and comfortable. Thanks again for taking the time to post a review.
