Perfect 'home base' for seeing Scotland!

  • 5 of 5

This flat (and Francois) were absolutely wonderful! Francois was very kind and professional and thorough in explaining how everything worked. (He was also very patient and flexible as our flight was delayed over 6 hours!)

The flat is bright, clean and modern, and included everything we needed for our 8 day stay in Edinburgh. The location was perfect as we were in a very safe and clean part of the city - within walking distance of the 'downtown' tourist area. Bus stops are very close and lots of terrific pubs and restaurants and shops. Sainsbury and Tesco are close for groceries as well.

We hope to return to Scotland again someday and will definitely book this flat again!

Five days in Edinburgh,Scotland

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment very much. It had everything we needed and was an easy walk to both the Old Town and the Botanical Gardens. Francois met us at the door and was very helpful with questions. There are several options for dining in the area and a small grocery within a five min. walk. We would definitly stay here again.

Wonderful studio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 10 days' staying in this city center studio. The location is great (A fantastic Cosmo restaurant is within a short walking distance and many other good resturants in this area) And Prince Street is quite close too. Many places of interest and bus stops are not far at all. The studio is so warm and comfortable for travellers. And the owner is very kind and helpful. We will stay here again next time!

Wonderful convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the flat as the location is so convenient for us and the accommodation overall meets our needs. Although the nights were cold out, the heater and gas fire kept the flat cozy and warm. There is some room for some improvement though and it's probably time for an upgrade to the mattress and bedding. Francois is very responsive, and when we had an issue with the curtain, he was quick to provide a fix.

Warm winter stay in an unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

I would have liked to give this 4.5 stars - it's not perfect but a very nice play to stay. I'll start with the only three negatives I have: the internet router needed to be reset very often, almost every few hours; the kitchen needed a decent knife (had trouble cutting lemons!), so I went ahead and bought one from Tesco and left it there; and finally, one of the curtain rails fell off the wall when we tried to close it, which happened towards the end of our stay so it didn't bother us. Francois was very communicative and I presume he has fixed it up after we left - these things happen with usual wear and tear.

Now for the positives. There are so many! First of all, Francois met me at the apartment and gave a great introduction to the city as well as all the things I needed to know. Good communication start to finish. Some previous reviews have said the shower is tricky but it's actually quite easy to set the temperature right, and great pressure too. The best restaurants and cafes are within easy walking distance, with several small supermarkets around the corner, as well as a larger Tesco 10 minutes' walk away. At the same time it's a quiet, classy street so no drunks or tourists wandering around. The gas heater is a godsend in the doldrums of winter, and an extra electric heater was provided. Great bed, sofa and plenty of space.

I highly recommend staying here.
