Loved, loved, loved this flat!! It was even more spacious and beautiful than the photos. Everything is spotless. The location was perfect! Very quiet, but just steps away from tons of restaurants, boutiques, shops & pubs. The walk from the train station was quick, super simple and conveniently all downhill. We were able to walk to absolutely everything we wanted to see in the city in 20 minutes or less. We never even used the bus.
Charlotte has thought of every detail. We felt like we were in our dream home. There is a binder full of directions on how to use things in the flat and recommendations on sight seeing. There are travel books, novels, and movies. There is a basket full of UK adapters for your use, high quality toiletries, a nice full size hair dryer, an iron & board & drying rack. The washing machine was handy & easy to use. The kitchen is gorgeous. I wish I could replace my kitchen at home with this one. It's a shame we didn't end up finding time to cook in it. All the utensils & tools are high end and there was definitely anything you would need and more to cook up anything you want. The bathroom is as swanky as it looks like in the photos. The whirlpool bath was a treat after long days of walking. The hot water heater is one of the on demand kinds so you don't ever run out of hot water. The temperature of the flat was also perfect.
The only slight negative is that there was not very good light near any of the mirrors and there are no outlets in the bathroom so we ended up getting ready in the morning in the living room where there was more light. So bring a travel mirror, ladies. Problem solved.
We adored Edinburgh & I DEFINITELY want to come back. I can't imagine there's a place that's nicer for the money than this flat. Book this flat, you won't regret it! Just don't book it for the week that I come back to visit in 2016 please! ;)
Charlotte is lovely and warm. She was prompt with responding to our initial enquiry and the whole process felt very professional. The apartment is beautifully appointed and is in an incredible location. I have lived in Edinburgh previously so didn't need much in the way of advice from Charlotte however she did leave a helpful book filled with restaurants reviews, sightseeing tips et al. Would definitely stay here again.
Charlotte was a wonderful host! She provided us with excellent information prior to our arrival and was even there to meet us upon arrival and answer any questions we may have had.
The location is fantastic- very close to tram transport link and easy access to food shops, cute little local bars, pubs and restaurants.
Apartment itself was beautiful. Absolutely perfect, stress- free stay. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
We were met at the flat and had everything shown to us. There was plenty of advice for things to see and do, and useful maps. The flat is beautiful and really coloured our stay. It's a great location, too - central with plenty of shops and attractions on the doorstep.
Absolutely perfect. Such a beautiful apartment. Amazing balance of homeliness and luxury inside, plus great pubs, restaurants and cafes on the doorstep - what more can you possibly need? Pint in the Barony by the fire and breakfast in Broughton Delicatessen shouldn't be missed nearby, it's the best full breakfast we've ever had! We also made use of the central location walking to nearby sites, Calton Hill, Arthur's Seat plus the Old Town and the castle are all within easy reach on foot. Highlights being an IPA in Brew Dog on Cowgate and a ginormous burger at 9a Holyrood down the Royal Mile. Missing it already and we've not even got to Berwick yet. Our stay was so good we were debating stowing ourselves away in there as we definitely didn't want to leave! Thank you Charlotte, we'll definitely be back!
This was myself and my boyfriend's first time using airbnb and our experience has been amazing. From the moment we booked this apartment Charlotte was great. From responding to our emails to giving us information about our stay she was very informative and accommodating. When we checked into the apartment Charlotte was lovely and friendly she showed us where everything was and had information for us about buses/taxis, shops and local bars and restaurants in the area, she had everything covered. The apartment itself was amazing!! We loved everything about it, it was clean, tidy and in a great location. It had everything we needed to make us feel at home. The layout and design of the apartment was also lovely, it had a lot of character and we will definitely be back to stay again. I highly recommend the apartment and Charlotte and we loved our first airbnb experience.
This is the perfect place for your Edinburgh visit. Easy transport from the airport, within walking distance of everything and utter luxury inside! Don't look any further. Charlotte was the ideal host. There to meet us on arrival and at the end of the phone to solve any issues or answer questions. We will be back.
