Everything about this apartment and its location is excellent. The only drawback is the lack of free parking available.
Everything with our booking was handled promptly, courteously and professionally. The apartment is located in a very convenient and nice area. The furnishings in the apartment are very tasteful and pleasant. There is plenty of space and the quality of all appliances and furniture is top-notch.
If you are driving a car to Edinburgh, be prepared to pay a lot for parking or having to move your car around a lot. I parked for free at a Lothian Buses Park & Ride lot, but this was inconvenient and somewhat dangerous (far away and "at own risk").

Owner's Response: I agree that the only downside of our apartment is the lack of free parking. I always stress to anyone who asks that the last thing you want anywhere in Edinburgh is a car. One of the delights of the city is the fact that the centre is surprisingly small and so you can walk everywhere - or use the excellent public transport.
The on street parking in Cumberland Street is free from Friday 5.30pm until Monday 8.30am. Outwith these times it costs £1.20 per hour from 8.30am - 5.30pm after which it is free again until the next morning. The problem is you can only put 4 hours in at a time and so would have to keep returning to the car to top it up - not good!
Buddy's idea of taking his car to the Park & Ride is excellent. I use it a lot with no problems at all.
Walking is the very best way to see the city anyway - taking different routes every day is fascinating - finding some lovely hidden places, bars, restaurants, shops etc.
I love it!
