Major warning to people staying at the apartment for August/September 2015 - a large renovation project is taking place on a building right outside the bedroom window. The workers start promptly at 7am and the windows are old and have zero sound proofing. This is a city apartment so things like this are unavoidable but it would have been nice to know before booking.
Great location and nicely sized apartment. Amanda was accommodating when our check in time kept changing.
I know everyone has a different perception of what is clean but the apartment (mainly the bathroom) needed a good cleaning. Mold in the grout in the shower and "dust bunnies" in the corners of the floor. Not my standard of clean.
The selling point of the unit is the size and location.
The location is ideal, a few steps to the Edinburgh Castle and a good walking distance to Holyrood Park and the New Town. The flat itself is very comfortable and clean, despite the walk-up of three levels which could be challenging for small kids. We loved chilling out by the kitchen window while watching life go by at the Royal Mile! We truly enjoyed staying in the centre of the city (thank you very much VieAmhor!!!) although there are a few details to improve inside the flat to make it a truly perfect experience. We're giving it 3 stars but it could easily be a 4 with the improvements addressed.
The apartment was very clean and comfortable and ideally located in old town. The host were extremely gracious and helpful (particularly when we got the check out time wrong!) would definitely book again. Highly recommended!
El departamento esta excelentemente ubicado, en la royal mile a dos cuadras del castillo. Es increible, desde sus ventanas se ve la royal mile. Es un tercer piso. Es muy comodo. Amplio. El equipamiento muy completo. Las sabanas y toallas eran de muy buena calidad, cosa que A veces no ocurre en otros departamentos. Paramos tres personas sin ningun inconveniente. Una cuarta entraria perfecto tambien. Con Amanda y leanne la cordinacion de la llegada estuve bien. tienen la atencion de dejar cafe, te , azucar. Shampu, crema, gel de ducha. La calefaccIon muy buena, y facil de manejar. Hay paraguas. Secador de pelo. Lo recomendaria ampliamente.
Amanda's flat is wonderful!
It is located directly in the city center, just next to beautiful Castle of Edinburgh. We could walk everywhere and had a great stay in a lovely city. Amanda has everything in her flat what you need (WIFI, good equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and couch, DVDs...)
I would recommend the aparment to everybody.
We were 3 persons but it is enough space for 4 persons.
We could not have found something better.
The place was as advertised, very cozy and comfortable. It is located in the best location in Edinburgh (on the Royal Mile).
I would HIGHLY recommend this place to families and small groups of friends who want to visit Edinburgh. The landlady was helpful enough to get us to the location (which is extremely easy to find) as well as let us check in slightly earlier than usual.
I know where to stay if I ever visit Edinburgh again.
We have stayed as the family. The house is at a perfect location and there is everything you can need in it. Amanda and Leanne are perfect hosts. We would definetly stay again during our next visit.

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.
