If this place is available BOOK IT NOW! The space is large, clean, and in the perfect location for exploring Edinburgh. Youre down the street from Grass Market/Victoria Street and basically right below the Castle/Royal Mile. Next time I'm in Edinburgh I'll be looking for Marion and Eric's place - It really felt like home!

Eric & Marion’s apartment couldn’t have been more perfect for our stay in Edinburgh. Even though it was close to transportation, everything we wanted to see and experience was so walkable that we opted for that instead. The apartment had everything we needed to feel at home, as well as a ton of information about Edinburgh. We’d highly recommend to anyone visiting Edinburgh!

This flat is in a terrific location: it's in (or very near) the GrassMarket, putting it right in the thick of things to do in Edinburgh but is also in a very quiet neighborhood. There is a bus stop just across the street and another down the road where you can catch local buses as well as the hop-on-hop-off city tour bus and there is a view of Edinburgh Castle from the living room window! There are plenty of eateries within a short walking distance, including The Fiddler's Arms where I had fab haddock, chips & cider. I love that the pantry shelves are partially stocked with staples (spices, teabags, cereal, etc.) from the hosts & previous guests; have a look to see what's there before shopping at the Local Sainsbury's down the street to save yourself from buying what might already be there. I'd definitely stay here again.

Eric was there on time to meet us and give us information. He was a very gracious, kind host. The place is excellent for 2 people. Location is absolutely phenomenal and walkable easily to everything, old town and new town. Loved it. Great showers and bed was a plus.

Eric and Marion responded quickly to all messages. Terry met us at the door with keys and was extremely friendly and helpful. The apartment is in a great location just a short walk from several wonderful restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend.

Eric and Marion's flat is in a great location, and has everything you could possibly need during your stay in Edinburgh. Although we had a car with us we parked it for the duration of the time we spent here as we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. Marion is extremely helpful, and the binder with information in it was very useful as was the street atlas that was left for us to use. We really enjoyed our time in the flat and in Edinburgh.

Great location. Right in the middle of the action near the grass market. Very clean. Eric was very friendly when meeting us to give the tour. Was a. It of road noise and foot traffic which made it tricky to sleep without earplugs.

We are semi-retired, have lived in Edinburgh all our lives, and know it intimately. Just ask if there is anything about Edinburgh you want to know.
