My mom and I really enjoyed the location of this property. Bobby the dog and Greyfriar's made excellent landmarks. The apartment was perfect for the two of us. The view was lovely, even though it's a cemetery. It was peaceful/quiet, although there was quite a bit of pedestrian traffic in this famous cemetery. In addition, the communication from the manager was absolutely excellent. There are probably some updates the apartment could use, like a living room chair and more comfortable sofa bed, but I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Cozy and peaceful
This is a great flat to stay in and explore Edinburgh.
The door keys were safely stored in a key box by the door and the owner sent us instructions prior to our arrival. Clean flat, good wifi connection and quiet at night. The mattress could use some upgrade but it's definitely not the worst. There are a lot of great spots for dining in the area that are within five minutes walking distance. There's a news shop (convenience shop) across the street, Postal office too, and a supermarket ( Sainsbury's ) nearby. We simply loved the neighborhood, and enjoyed our stay in this cozy flat.
A relaxing retreat in the heart of a charming city.
We enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh very much, due in large part to the comfort of this flat. The property was very clean and cozy. We felt at home in the center of the city and were within walking distance to a variety of attractions and restaurants. It’s safe to say that we became regulars at a few of the local establishments. Martin provided detailed information prior to our arrival and also had a “how to” booklet containing important information regarding the ins and outs of the property. He was also available via phone/text if we needed additional guidance. We’d grown very attached to the property, that on our final day in Edinburgh we had difficultly leaving! We look forward to returning to Scotland and to this flat.
Cozy and charming apartment next to historic Greyfriars Cemetary, very quiet.
My husband and I stayed at GreyFriars Apartment for a week in March. It was cozy and a pleasant place to spend time in. The kitchen is well outfitted for making a simple meal, and we usually made coffee and breakfast in. The sofa is nice for lounging and I really appreciate the nice lighting throughout the apartment. Its so much nicer ambience to have table lamps and reading lamps rather a bright overhead.
Our check in was simple with a self check in key code to retrieve the keys.
We had a good stay.
If I had to mention a negative, I would say th mattress in the bedroom could be replaced. It is a bit saggy.
But overall, I think it’s a fabulous apartment and it’s in a very good location. We could walk everywhere, and it was was in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood, but very quiet for sleeping. Highly recommended
Petit appart hyper pratique et bien situé dans la vieille ville. De quoi faire du café et cuisinner; petit problème avec le chauffage résolu dès que je l'ai signalé. C'était Super!
Comfy flat in perfect location
Really enjoyed our stay. Ideal as a base while visiting my daughter at Uni. Problem with heating sorted very quickly so very toasty at night. Bed was very comfortable and shower worked well. One thing that would be great would be large bath towels or bath sheets as I found the towels provided a little small though adequate.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and good to hear that you enjoyed the closeness of the apartment to the university. Thanks for your comments about towels. For each guest we leave a bath towel and a hand towel. Regards, Martin
A bright, centrally located one-bedroom apartment (sleeps 1–3) on the second floor of an architecturally significant building (B-listed) on Forrest Hill, a quiet lane off George IV Bridge, close to the historic Royal Mile and within easy walking distance of the major tourist attractions, festival venues, shops, night-life and transport connections.
