This is one of the iconic Edinburgh buildings. It is right next to the castle and with in easy reach of all the city's attractions. Communication with Yvonne was easy and she replied quickly to queries. The apartment is airy and very comfortable but could do with redecoration throughout.

Previous reviews are 100% accurate this place needs some serious cleaning, especially in the bathroom, mold everywhere. Shower has no knob. Needs a paint job and decent bedroom furniture. Looks like a youth hostel. Wifi virtually none existent. Smoke alarm hanging by wires. Also washer only-- no dryer. No bulbs in the living room. The owner needs to read the reviews and respond.

Very well situated for the Royal Mile, restaurants and Castle, with fantastic panoramic views over Edinburgh and Firth of Forth. Situated on a hill, plus there are lots of stairs, so this is not for people with mobility difficulties. Spacious, light and airy and comfortably furnished. Milk and tea supplied. WiFi and TV. We considered that it needs deep cleaning and re-painting, as some areas were grubby, especially the bathroom.

We rented this apartment in the summer during the Fringe-festival in 2013, 2015 and in 2017. That alone should show how much we enjoy our time there. Not much needs to be said about the location or the view, other than that it is centric and breathtaking; in the day as well as the night. Once you’ve seen the view, you will be back! One thing that did catch our attention the last time we visited (august 2017) was that the apartment needed to be thoroughly cleaned and refurnished; especially the bathroom: broken seams, molded silicone sealant etc. It could also use a paint job, so could the rest of the apartment for that matter. Needless to say, there is much work to be done by the handyman. Which would give him a chance to take a look at the gaps in the window before winter as well(they close but still air gets through). Furthermore, the two leather couches have begun to give way slightly. The bed seems to have dropped at the head as well, though that did not make it uncomfortable. The Television does not have a usb port but does have an HDMI port; in case you wanted to bring a mediaplayer. The CD tray gets stuck. Wi-Fi is excellent in the living room. The shower feels amazing: a strong and warm jet. However the knob to control it is missing and needs to be replaced. The washer was replaced by a new Bosch at the time of our departure in august 2017. To conclude: the communication with Yvonne, Gill and John was good and they seem very trustworthy. We will definitely be back!
