“Charming apartment; helpful and friendly owner; definitely one to return to.”

people found this review helpful

When I couldn't make the website work, I telephoned Shahid, the owner, who booked the dates for me. I really value people, who accomodate my inabilities, enabling me to enjoy something I've set my heart on.

The flat is very modern, cosy and the exact opposite of everything "New Town". The beds are comfortable and the flat is equipped for holiday makers. I had a lovely time and only wish I'd been there for longer. It is well located in the middle of the city.

It is on the fourth floor and served by a lift.

Thank you Shahid, for making the stay so easy and comfortable.

Feedback - Please include instructions for using appliances in the white folder. It is pure luck that my friend has a similar model dishwasher. Neither of us knew how to make the DVD player or washing machine work.

I'm asked to comment on its suitability for disabled people. Access is fine [it has a lift] and I don't know how they'd get out in a fire.

It's perfect for older travellers [I'm one and I love it]. It's perfect for friends. A two bedroom flat, sleeping four people is unsuitable for large groups.

It's smart, with nice wooden floors, so is probably unsuitable for pets. I don't know if the block allows them. It's rather too smart for very young children, who are at the age of throwing food around. It's fine for children, once they are house trained.

“Covenient location and comfortable”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This was a well-appointed flat sleeping four - a double and two singles with two bathrooms, one en-suite. It was very clean and the owner had thoughtfully provided extras such as shampoo and soap as well as a hairdryer and iron. Comfortable lounge and good kitchen. Access is by lift. Location is excellent for the Edinburgh festival: about ten minutes' walk from most venues we wanted to visit. The owner was also very reponsive, helping us out immediately when we had questions for him. Recommended.

“lovely apartment, great location”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We stayed here when the fringe was on and had a brilliant time. The apartment is really clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is great, really central and walking distance to everything and loads of restaurants, shops etc nearby. Having the WiFi is a great bonus when travelling with teenagers too.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 30 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My wife found this apartment on line, we were visiting Edinburgh to support friends and family running in the marathon. Booking was easy, good communications with the owner. The location was great, just a few minutes walk from the start of the marathon. The apartment was stocked with the little extras like shower gels etc that you would normally associate with four star hotels. All in all we had a great stay. Cannon gate Street was a short walk away where local buses can be boarded either to the airport or as we did to visit the Royal Yacht at the Ocean Terminal.

Liked best: The apartment was modern, in a great location for what we wanted. It offered all we needed, ie on suite in the first bedroom with the second made up with two single beds as we requested.
Liked least: Nothing, everything was as we expected.
