“Exellent trip”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I stayed at the Rose apartment with 2 sisters and a cousin. The apartment has a brilliant location and in equal amounts great for shopping, entertainment and sightseeing. There are some great restaurants and takeaway's very close so no need to cook if you don't want to. I would most certainly recommend to friends and family.

“Fantastic apartment!!”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This apartment is really quite great - it's in a very central location close to loads of shops, bars, restaurants and attractions. You couldn't find a better location in our opinion. Yes there is some minor noise from the street but that would be the same in any central location on a weekend night in a big town! It didn't impact our stay at all, which was over a weekend.

The apartment itself was spotless, finished to a very high standard and is perfect for 4 people, with plenty of storage in the bedrooms. The rooms are of a good size and the kitchen is well appointed if you decided you wanted to cook for yourself.

Gareth, the owner, was brilliant, with perfect communication before, during and after the stay. Being met on arrival at the apartment was a nice touch, as was the welcome pack of bread, cereal, croissants, milk, wine, coffee etc. The bathroom also had small shower gels etc and there was jam/butter in the fridge. Lots of nice touches.

During the stay Gareth replaced the toaster with a new high quality one as the previous people staying had said it was on the blink, again quick speedy response - he genuinely does care that you have a great time at Rose Apartments!

We will definitely return and the experience has converted us to exploring apartment rentals in other cities - though it will be very hard to beat Rose Apartments for quality, price, location and the attention to detail!

Go on, book!

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Stayed for two nights with my husband and another couple.

Location is fabulous. Steps away from restaurants and shops. We walked everywhere, including the length of the Royal Mile and to the bus and train stations.

Flat was clean. Extra touches such as fresh bread, butter, and jam were left for us and were much appreciated. Washer & hairdryer were great amenities that we made use of!

Gareth was great- very accommodating. Highly recommend this apartment!

“This is a gem”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Along with some girlfriends I stayed at this apartment for a week during the festival. The location couldn't have been better with transport links and services very nearby and easy access to all Edinburgh has to offer.
The flat is in a pedestrianised city centre location and whilst not exactly quiet, noise was not a problem for any of us.
The flat is on the first floor (not too much of a climb) and well appointed with many thoughtful touches. Bedrooms are a decent size and the living area very sociable with breakfast bar area connecting to the small kitchen. The modern bathroom had a decent shower which never ran out of hot water!
The landlord was very accommodating and communication at all times was very good. More of a host than a landlord really.
I would recommend staying in this apartment to anyone who wanted to visit Edinburgh at any time of year, not just during the festival.
