“Beautiful place in an amazing location -- right next to the castle”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

The apartment is huge -- 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and one half-bath, two living areas, a dining room plus an eat-in kitchen, and a laundry room. There are great views to the north, and a small balcony on the west -- the castle side. And it's only 250 feet (70 meters) from the Edinburgh castle plaza. Some things to be aware of: (1) The great views are a consequence of the 3rd floor setting, so there are three flights of spiral stairs to haul the luggage up; (2) no parking is available, but we were able to unload and load in front of the building. I parked on Calton road for £12 per day; (3) during the Edinburgh Tattoo in August, there are large grandstands on the castle plaza that interfere with the views of the castle. We were there in mid September, and the stands were being disassembled, with machinery and hammering noises throughout the daylight hours.

When I return to Edinburgh, I'll definitely book this place again. I'd even consider scheduling my vacation based on the availability of this apartment. I can't imagine a nicer place nor a better location.

“Beautiful apartment in the center of Edinburgh”
Reviewed 1 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This a beautiful apartment with a fantastic location! It was so comfortable and made a wonderful place to both explore Edinburgh and recover from our jet lag. The views out the windows were stunning. it was down such a picturesque lane that every single time we came back to the apartment there was someone taking a photo of the lane!

“Location and Elegance”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

This apartment is in an excellent location for viewing the attractions of Edinburgh! Even though it is a hike to get up the stairs, you will appreciate the elegance, spaciousness and the bedrooms with modern bathrooms in additon to the half bath! The views of the castle and out over Edinburgh toward Leith are superb.

The kitchen is very modern with plenty of cooking utensils and dinnerware to feed at least 6 people. The dining room has seating for 8 and the 2 parlors allow everyone to spread out and be comfortable. The showers are modern and the water pressure is great.

You will need to have someone make the 20 minute walk to the office for check-in and receiving of the keys. But, the office staff is super nice and accommodating.

We were celebrating a special birthday for one member of our party and were pleased with the apartment.

Wonderful base from which to explore Scotland's history. Five minute walks to castle and museum. Very comfortable and spacious. You'll get a little exercise climbing the stairs and walking Edinburgh's Royal Mile and side streets. Nicely equipped kitchen and up to date bathrooms. We could only stay two days. Wish it had been a week.

“Elegant retreat for the family in the heart of the old city”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

With its great location and views (probably the best in Edinburgh), this large, spacious and comfortable apartment puts you right in the heart of the old city with easy access to the new.

Fabulous public rooms provide great space for the whole family and all the bedrooms have ensuite facilities, which larger groups will appreciate hugely!

The kitchen is modern and has everything you need for a short or longer stay. If we had been staying here a bit longer, it would have been a great place to cook and share a meal.

We can recommend the Whiski Rooms restaurant just around the corner, which was excellent.

We were pleasantly surprised as the place is even better in real life than what the photos show - a very special place - highly recommended, we will be back!
