Strictly no smoking
The apartment is really nice and the pictures show the way it is in real life. It is located just 5 minute's walk from the train station and bus from Airport, in the Royal Mile, just in the city center!
Hot water, heating and wi-fi Internet working smoothly; domotics are a plus. Everything in the apartment looks brand new, it was really cozy, the kitchen is fully equiped and the terrace will look great in summertime for breakfast or dinner.
In general, you will fall in love with the place.
Great apartment in one of the best locations in Edinburgh. Only a couple of steps away from the heart of the royal mile, yet feels quiet and secluded.
The accommodation is finished to a very high standard, and it is a lot larger than you expect from seeing the photos.
The private roof terrace is an added bonus.
Communication with the owners is very easy.
Great place to stay. Was right across the road from the St. Giles. lovely apartment, efficient and friendly check in. Would most definitely stay again when in Edinburgh.
This was a great flat in the heart of Old Town Edinburgh. The location was truly superb, on one of the most picturesque closes (side-street) off the royal mile. The 1 bedroom flat is very spacious, nicely renovated and very comfortable. The patio is great on the off occassions that it is not raining, and for once, the pictures make it look smaller than it actually is.
The Not So Good:
The property is managed by a 3rd party management company and their communication was a bit lacking. Basically they let you know where a lock box is to pick up the key, and there is no other communication. We kind of had to guess at the checkout procedures.
We would absolutely stay in this property again. The location, amenities, high end finishes, and generally cozy feel made our trip to Edinburgh!
I have used Airbnb several times to book accommodation around the world and it never disappoints. The gem that is this apartment in the centre of Edinburgh has been such a delight to stay at and is precisely the reason I continue to use this site.
We visited during the Edinburgh Fringe festival and though this apartment is literally right on 'The Mile' where the performers are in full swing during the day, the apartment is a peaceful haven of tranquility as it's situated toward the rear of the building.
Having our own rooftop terrace was a sheer delight and we took full advantage of being able to eat our meals outdoors (Scottish weather permitting!) The apartment is bright and spacious, finished to a very high standard and is decorated very simply with tasteful furniture and a VERY comfortable bed.
Our hosts were very helpful and incredibly efficient; nothing was too much trouble.
When we return to Edinburgh, we will return to this apartment. No doubt about it.
The Appartment was bright, spacious, clean and well equipped. It is ideally situated just off the Royal Mile. The communication with Amanda and Leanne was good. I greatly enjoyed my stay at this appartment. I can only recommend it and would book the flat again for my next visit to Edinburgh.

About the Host, Amanda
I live in Edinburgh and have a real passion for the city!
My ideal Sunday starts with a walk with the dogs up Calton Hill, then to the Royal Mile for lunch and a walk round the old town followed by dinner and cocktails in the New Town!
I do a lot of fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support and last year summited Mt Kilimanjaro.
