We had a great stay in a beautiful appartment. Nice, cosy and comfortable!
It is beautifully located next to Meadows Park and very close to the city centre! Our three days were great and we would stay again if we go back
Yvonne's apartment is really well located. Inside the Meadows Park, only a 15min walk from Waverley Station (a really central place in Edinburgh) and another 15min Walt from the entrance of Holyrood Park (where Arthur's Seat is located). The neighborhood is great, safe and with a Sainsbury's and a Starbucks just around the corner. The apartment itself is really comfy, with one bed (for two people) and a air bed which we used (with no problem) for a third guest. The place is spacious and has a heater (really helpful for the colder days). The place was clean when we arrived and Gill's husband was very helpful showing us the place, the building and telling us about the city. Definitely would be back.
The flat is nice, although the host wasn't there she had arranged for someone to meet & greet us, the only problem we had was when we arrived the boiler had failed so we had no hot water or heating & although they tried hard to resolve it we had to spend the 1st night in a cold flat, the plumber arrived the 2nd morning with the part needed & fixed the boiler so the rest of our stay was warm & comfortable. The flat is in a prime location close to the Castle & Royal Mile with lovely views over Edinburgh & beyond, but be wary with lots of stairs up to the flat it's not for the faint hearted.
The most wonderful views of the Prince's Gardens and in the perfect part of town. Just steps away from the Royal Mile and the Edinburgh Castle, this place is as good as it gets. Very spacious with all the necessary amenities. We loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone.
Beautiful flat with lovely view of the meadows, really central location. Perfect
This place was fantastic. Amazing location (and when I say amazing I mean it) and in a beautiful old building overlooking the castle. It's experiences like these that keep me coming back to AirBnB. Yvonne and her husband were extremely accommodating, meeting my partner and I in the evening after a late flight. As others have mentioned the stairs are hike, but the climb is well worth the view. The apartment was immaculate.
Yvonne was traveling so we were met by her caretakers (John and Gill) who were easy to work with, efficient and friendly. They gave us a full rundown of the place when we arrived and were responsive regarding check-out, etc. The place looks exactly as pictured and has the extensive and mesmerizing view of Edinburgh as described! It was warm, comfortable and an excellent location for getting all around the city. Coming from San Francisco, we found the hills to be modest and easily manageable with some carry-on luggage in tow from the train station, though it is ~5 min uphill walking at a moderate pace so that could be more of a problem with any physical limitations, heavy baggage, etc. We used taxis a couple of times to come back from various locations and they were able to pull up right near the flat, so that's an option as well. (there are still a lot of stairs to get up to the unit) Overall, we had an excellent stay and would definitely recommend the unit to others. You really can't overstate how amazing the location is. We enjoyed wandering back late in the evening along the Royal Mile after the tourists had cleared out, with the castle torches burning in the distance and a bit of mist in the air. Felt like we had a movie set to ourselves!
This place was outstanding. From the view, to the location, to all the extra little touches. I even had to have some concert tickets sent there and they hung on to them for me till I arrived. Great place great service. I'll be back again.
This flat is a beautiful, cosy, place to stay. It's on the 4th or 5th floor an old Victorian building overlooking Edinburgh's new town. The view is absolutely spectacular - you can see all the way over to the Firth of Forth. The flat itself was spotlessly clean with everything you need to cook and a welcome pint of milk, tea, coffee left out for us. It was really easy organising our stay over ema with Yvonne, she was very accommodating. We would recommend her flat to any of our friends and family.
Perfect location! I did have a very difficult time finding the apartment. I circled the complex a few times, entering different buildings and going up and down the wrong staircases. I had heavy luggage with me throughout all this, and it was after dark. I resorted to asking complete strangers on the street where to find the apartment, but nobody knew. The apartment keeper finally yelled down to me from the correct building and came to unlock the door. I don't know why he wasn't waiting for me downstairs in front of the building...he knew when I was to arrive in Edinburgh and he must have known the door to the correct building would be locked. My only other complaints would be that the mattress was very lumpy and the toilet wouldn't flush correctly. But it's the most wonderful location with a magical view of the city. So very well worth the stay.
Yvonne and her husband were excellent guests. Very kind couple. Left the apartment clean and tidy. We hope they enjoyed Sevilla and had a good flight back to their home. 100% recommended to other host.
Thank you Yvonne!
Yvonne and her husband were ideal guests and we enjoyed
They left the Annexe in a clean and tidy way.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them to other
Yvonne was absolutely brilliant!
