“Attractive, Central, Home From Home.”
Reviewed 31 August 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We found our stay in this apartment comfortable and pleasant. Mary had provided everything we needed and she has presented this apartment beautifully. There were so many little touches that made this a great place to stay in the delightful city of Edinburgh.
The location is ideal for visiting Edinburgh's attractions, any part of the city is not too far. The stairs leading up to the apartment from the street would not be suitable for people with mobility problems but for most people they are fine.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in Edinburgh and that you found the apartment comfortable.
I would just like to say that the apartment has two toilets toilets not three, I think that you just made a mistake as I am sure you know it is two, this is just for future guests benefit so they are not disappointed if they find less.
I would love to welcome you back if you return to Edinburgh.

“Great apartment, perfect location”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Mary, the owner, was there to greet us upon our arrival. She expected us one hour later but because we were a little early we simply called ahead and she was there waiting. The apartment had a beautiful living room area a nice kitchen two bedrooms and one and a half baths. It was just my wife and I so we had plenty of room. And considering the size of the apartment and the location, we felt that the value was excellent.
The location in old town which perfect, just below Edinburgh Castle and next to the Royal Mile. The fully equipped kitchen made it very convenient when we wanted to eat in, and the location was in walking distance to all the major attractions and conveniences. We would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again.

“Perfect Scottish Apt close to everything”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed at 3 different places in 3 different countries on this trip, our favorite was Old Town. The inside is very clean, very organized and very Scottish with modern touches. Loved the location - just know that there are 16 stairs to one level and another 16 to the apartment. The kitchen is spotless and everything you need is there if you decide to cook. We usually did breakfast. Right next to the Castle ( and a hundred steps - or cheat and walk around the corner and find your way on the streets ( much easier on the knees). Great restaurants and shops nearby. Also we found a back way around the castle and to the park going down the hill and cutting thru a pathway. Since it is only 1 bathroom ZI would stay with no more than 4 people but that is your choice. 2 single beds in one room and a beautiful canopy queen bed in the other room. Plus a nice view into the courtyard off the back bedroom. The front living area is very nice size and has a small electric fireplace. The view is very nice and across the street is a very popular Hostel. The tour busses do park on the street for most of the day and many tourists are milling around on the sidewalk, but no big deal. If you want to know about a few restaurants send me a message and I will be glad to tell you about some fantastic food while we were there. Apartment is nice an quiet - and perfect. We will stay here next time in Edinburgh.

Great Great Great

Owner and husband helped us with luggage into unit. SO NICE!!!!!!!
Landlord was available for questions and always gave a quick response. She never made us feel like we were bothering her. AWESOME!
Owner had comprehensive manual about the unit and the location.
Games in books in living room to use.
Had to go up a flight of stairs to entry of building and then up one more flight to unit. But worth it.
Comfortable beds!
Great kitchen filled with juice, tea, cookies and coffee.
Cable TV
2 bathrooms! great for 3 guests.
Really made our trip to Edinburgh terrific. We had been to 2 other vacation rentals on our trip. This was the best.
