“Lovely apartment in great location”

The attractive photos gave a very good impression of the lovely apartment - very well presented in all room; lots of period features giving the apartment loads of character and with plenty of space for our family to spread out. The apartment was lovely and warm on arrival and easy to keep so. Overall - very comfortably furnished with two great double beds - both extremely comfy! (we bed-hopped with our young girls!) The drum staircase to the third floor mentioned in other reviews was no problem for our 5 and 7yr olds - it gave a sense of adventure on the in and out each day!

Sean was very welcoming and helpful - there was milk, tea, coffee, sugar and shortbread waiting for us and a good stock of condiments etc.

Being located on the wonderful Grassmarket had many benefits: lots of places to eat and drink; immediate access to the Royal Mile, Castle, Museum of Scotland, Greyfriars Kirk (and Bobby); lots of bus connections from George IV Bridge - a great base to explore from. However, (as pre-warned by both reviews and Sean), the night-time noise from the bars and club across to the left was pretty significant, particularly in the front bedroom. We visited for 5 nights in the run up to Christmas so there was plenty of party spirit until 2/3 in the morning: It never woke our girls, but we struggled a couple of nights. Don't let this put you off though.

“Beautiful apartment!”

The apartment is beautiful - really well furnished with lots of thoughtful gestures. Sean is a pleasure to deal with. The apartment is in a great location for exploring Edinburgh. We were also able to leave our bags at the backpackers hostel that Sean also owns when we checked out. It was lovely and warm, with hot water on tap. Beds are really comfortable - even the sofa bed! Just 3 things I would let others know:
1 - The apartment is up a winding staircase
2 - The shutters don't close fully (but they are lovely!) This wasn't a problem for us as we went in Winter but could be an issue in the Summer
3 - It was really noisy during the night when we went - through to 2/3 in the morning. However, given the location of the apartment I think that is to be sightly expected. I would hesitate to stay in it in the summer given the lighter late nights etc.

There were 3 in our party and it was more than comfortable. I'm not convinced it would sleep 6 adults comfortably. I would definately stay here again.

We stayed at Sean's apartment for two nights and would recommend it as a great accommodation to anyone! It is located in a great area close to lots of Edinburgh highlights. Sean was easy to deal with and very helpful and the apartment itself was clean and had everything you could need...along with a few added touched that were a wonderful surprise.
