    Thank you Rebecca. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again next time your in Edinburgh. Kindest Regards Dominic

  • Beautiful apartment in a perfect part of town. Dominic was incredibly friendly and was on hand to greet us at the Italian restaurant just a few doors down to hand us the key and show us to the property. He even allowed us to check out late as our train was leaving mid-afternoon.
    The street was fantastic and incredibly convenient for access to the Royal Mile, train station and Princes St. The apartment is very nicely decorated, very homely, and ideal for a couple.
    Overall I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Edinburgh!

    Response from Dominic:

    Thank you Chris. So happy both you and your girlfriend enjoyed your stay. You are both welcome back anytime. My mother and all the gang in the bistro pass on their best wishes. Kindest Regards Dominic.

  • Dominic was a brilliant host. When we arrived at Edinburgh station we called just to check everything was ready. We were given directions to the bistro which was only a 2-3 minute walk. We was met by Dominic who was friendly, polite and inviting. He showed us to the apartment (3 doors down the road), showed us around and explained where everything was and also gave us info on where was good to eat/drink/visit etc.
    The apartment was clean, tidy and had everything you would need for your stay there. Anything else was only a stones throw away.

    Great apartment, great location and a warm, friendly and very helpful host. We would definitely stay here again . If you're thinking of coming to Edinburgh for the weekend or maybe longer then Dominic's comes highly recommended.

    Thanks again mate. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

  • Dominic's flat is even better than in the photos, and is beautifully clean and very comfortable. We spent 4 nights there and would definitely like to stay there again for another visit.
    The location is perfect for travelling by train - less than 5 mins walk from the main station. It's also ideal for exploring Edinburgh as it's so close to the Royal Mile. There are some good restaurants in the same street, which is very convenient if you are tired after a day's sight-seeing!

    Response from Dominic:

    Thank you Tony and Sue. I am so glad you enjoyed your first visit to Edinburgh.

    All the staff at Locandamarina say hi and we all look forward to your return visit in the not too distant future.

    Kindest Regards

  • Good place to be as it is so central and therefore everything in easy reach - particularly the art galleries. Felt secure and it is a comfortable apartment; spacious. Slightly noisy on Saturday nights (revellers!), so don't leave the bedroom window open unless you are used to it.... but then that's what city life is all about! . Friendly host. Enjoyed our visit and would stay again.

  • We had a lovely break at Dominic's flat, it is in a brilliant central location and is set up with everything you could wish & more. Dominic is a very welcoming and friendly host. You don't need to think about it, just go!

    Response from Dominic:

    Thank you Liz so much for those kind words. So glad you had a lovely break. It means so much to me that everyone has everything they could need while they are staying in my apartment. I hope to see you both again in the not to distant future. All the best. Kind Regards Dominic

  • Dominic's apartment was fantastic. It is in an ideal location in Edinburgh's old town and is a close walk (or short taxi ride) away from almost everything you would want to see. The apartment itself was spotless and exactly as advertised. I highly recommend everyone to stay at Dominic's place!
