Nice apartment in a good central location, just round the corner from Haymarket train station. Was shown around by managing agent and made to feel welcome.
Flat has all the usual amenities in good condition and came with a parking permit for our stay which was really useful.
Apartment is great - clean, modern, highly functional, lots of light.
Wifi stopped working a few days after our arrival - we were not sure why but it seemed the dsl bill hasn't been paid in time.
We had a very comfortable booking through staying experience at this flat in Edinburgh. As a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children under 12) we look for apartments that are comfortable, roomy, child friendly and near bus and train locations. This apartment met all criteria.
Though, as listed in other reviews, the apartment isn't the one pictured, the one we had was very close in amenities and appointments. The owners must own several similar apartments in the buildings and rent the furnished ones. I didn't see it as a problem.
We had good communication with e the host prior to arrival and, as communicated, we found the rental office to pickup keys easily and were met by Mr. Ahmed. Though we never met Neil, we were always met with courtesy, warmth and helpfulness. Not just handed the keys, Mr. Ahmed took us to the apartment, showed us all appliances, rooms, kitchen etc., showed us the operation of several items and gave us suggestions to the neighborhood.
He recommended a couple of good eateries and, more importantly, the ones to stay away from. There was map in the room to get acquainted with the tourist and city spots.
The master bedroom had a bed with sufficient pillows, covers etc. By US standards, the bed was a double bed. Nice windows, storage and lighting. The shower had its own water heater and it was nice to have the bathroom attached.
The second bedroom had two beds (US twin sizes) that slept the kids comfortably.
The kitchen had a very good assortment of pots/pans/dishes etc. and the washer was easy to use. We never used the dishwasher during our stay.
My only reason for 4 stars is that I've seen and experienced apartments off Airbnb in Paris, Bath - England and more that went above and beyond this stay. Those apartments were exactly as pictured, higher levels of service (above and beyond listed) and the furnishings were even more comfortable than described. The extra mile is what earned them the 5 stars.
Well-located, spacious, very clean, comfortable and fully equipped apartment. We had a great stay!
