“Fantastic location, but slightly disappointed”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

After a mix up with the keys and having to wait a couple of hours in the restaurant below we managed to get into the apartment, to find a beautiful spacious apartment with amazing views over the Royal Mile.
Our stay was great other than a few annoying things, like the thermostat on the shower wasn't working so the shower went from hot to cold instantly, making things interesting, the landing light wasn't working, making the mirror at the top of the stairs useless in the evening before you went out and there was no welcome essentials so we would advise you to stock up on a couple of things before hand and to use your phone to find out local information as there is none in the apartment.

Hi Kelly,

Thanks for your review and I am glad that the apartment was as you thought, bright, spacious and centrally located.

I am sorry for the minor hiccup getting the keys and the small annoying things you found with the apartment. All should be fine for your next visit.

Thanks once again for staying and I wish you many more happy travels.

Regards
Shahid

Well equipped spacious comfortable apartment. Near good restaurants bars and places of interest. Within walking distance of Waverley street station.Very helpful owner who is happy to answer any queries however small.
Has 5 small flights of stairs to flat some noise from from street artists and late night revellers.

“Unbeatable location, fabulous large apartment, very helpful owner!”

Location was so convenient- booked it a sa birthday treat for my elderly parents(78) as thought they wouldn't have too far to walk at the end of the day! But (& this is my only gripe!) while it states 2nd floor it is up 7/8 flights of stairs- NO LIFT. My Mum struggled and my Dad ended up in hospital as his hip went- I do not think the apartment is suitable for people of restricted mobility or elderly, unless pretty fit. But for anyone else you cannot beat this apartment - 5 mins from train station and all major sights, coffee shop downstairs, great restaurants within minutes, really spacious and clean - great to just look out of the window onto the royal mile-Thank you Shahid :)
