Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The 2 story walk up flat is only about a 10-15 min walk from most activities. It was a clean and private accommodation with most of your basic necessities (i.e. toilet paper, washing machine, condiments, etc.) Amanda was very polite and helpful during our transition and provided appropriate information. A great way to spend your time in Scotland!

  • I've spend a very nice week in Edinburgh. The flat is located both in a calm area, 5 minutes by walk to a big supermarket and pretty close to the city centre.
    Everything in Isabelle's flat is very welcoming and confortable.When we arrived, not only the bed was made but a lot of little things was availble that let you time to go shooping (for instance toilet paper, pasta, sugar, salt, tea, coffee...).
    Moreover Isabelle has been completely available for any little problem concerning how things works within the flat.

    I would go back to this flat if I have the chance to spend more holiday in Edinburgh!

  • Isabelle's place is a very good choice when going to Edinburgh ! A great place to stay, tidy, very clean and very comfortable.

    Also, it is close to the Parliement, the Royal Mile and hence the city's heart.

    I will come back for sure !

  • Première étoile va pour la localisation de l'appartement qui est à quelques pas du Holyrood Park, on passe de l'autre côté du miroir : de la ville à la lande écossaise...
    Deuxième étoile: la laveuse à linge, et le séchoir : très pratique !
    Troisième étoile : installation confortable et sécuritaire.
    Quatrième étoile: Isabelle est une hôte agréable et organisée.

    On s'y est senti comme chez nous. Propreté, transports en commun à proximité, épicerie dans le quartier, voisinage agréable.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my week staying in Isabelle's flat. It was very cute, close to a grocery store, and a great place to stay. One note is that it is about 15-20 minutes walking to get into the heart of Edinburgh, but once I familiarized myself with the directions, it was an easy walk. Super safe neighborhood, quiet at night. I would highly recommend this place. Isabelle was also very responsive and flexible about the check-in and check-out times. Great place to stay when you're in Edinburgh!

  • This flat is the best! I stayed here for a full week with my boyfriend. It's very clean, quirky and charming but the best thing about it is the location. Arthur's Seat is practically in your back yard. Such a spectacular view and super fun to hike. Also, it is about a 5-10 minute walk from the beginning of the Royal Mile and a huge grocery store is even closer. Isabelle is super on the ball--very communicative. Great place to stay. Highly recommended.

  • We stayed in Isabelle's lovely flat during the Edinburgh Festival. What a beautiful, crazy city! The flat was just as the photos showed with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We were given a warm welcome which was much appreciated so far from home. The supermarket was nearby which made it easy to stock up and utilise the kitchen. While I appreciate that some wouldn't like to walk into town from the flat, we thoroughly enjoyed the approx 20minute walk. Thanks Isabelle for providing us with such a positive first-time AirBnB (& Edinburgh) experience.

  • This is a beautiful, comfortable apartment on a quiet edge of Edinburgh. I spent a lot of time running on and around Arthur's Seat in the nearby park.

    The walk into the center from Isabelle's place isn't too long. The price, the house itself, and the beautiful location more than made up for the distance to the center.

  • We really enjoyed staying at Isabelle's flat. Isabelle was quick to respond to any questions we had about the city and even made sure there was some food in the fridge when we arrived so that we could prepare a breakfast after our long flight. The flat was very bright and clean and a great base to explore the city with many attractions only a short walk. The flat is also located on the edge of Holyrood park, which is a great place to go for a quick hike, or just relax.

  • Isabelle was very flexible with check-in. Her place was very tidy and and organized. It was just like the photos really. Because it is an older property, there are quirks, such as the shower being in a former closet. But is has nice big windows and lots of light. The location is a bit off of the tourist track in a working neighborhood. There is a 20-30 min walk to get to any sights at that end of town, so something to keep mind if you are on foot.
