We had a great time at Christian and Katie's! The flat is at a prime location, right by the Royal Mile in the old part of the city and 5 min from the train station by foot. Since no other guests were staying the night before us, we were able to check in early on Saturday morning, which greatly facilitated our arrival. The flat was great for 2 couples. It was clean, comfy, and we quickly felt at home. We had some issues with the heating in the living room on our first day (due to an odd combination of switches), but this was resolved quickly, and Katie had already offered to buy a space heater in the meantime (she was also very prompt to answer all of our messages). The street can get a bit noisy during the evening (there are a couple of pubs) but the bedrooms are insulated enough so that it didn't prevent us from sleeping. The mattress is the main bedroom is a bit soft, but this is a minor issue. In conclusion, we definitely recommend the Royal Mile Refuge for a stay in Edinburgh (which is a great city!).
The apartment of Katie & Christian is exactly as described: it's cute, stylish and comes with all the comfort you need, including this wow-antique radio, such a lovely surprise. The beds are good, the bad as well.
The area is super central: in front of the building you'll find several bars + restaurants, all shops around the corner. The communication with Katie&Christian went really well. We had a super time in Edinburgh!
Vi fick snabbt svar på vår förfrågan och det var lätt att kommunicera innan resan. Katie var på plats när vi kom vilket var trevligt. Det var en jättetrevlig lägenhet; fint och i ordning, fräscha lakan och sköna sängar- allt man behöver fanns. Fantastiskt läge mitt i Old Town; nära till transporter, sevärdheter, shopping och nattliv. Eftersom det ligger mitt i stan hör man när pubarna stänger och folk går hem, men det räknade vi med när vi valde läget. Vi är fantastiskt nöjda med vår vistelse i Edinburgh.
Cosy, clean and so centrel in the city
Couldn't have asked for a better location. So central! The negative is that there was some street noise at night, but this will always be the case in a city centre. Great value for money and would definitely stay here again. Katie was also really helpful with info beforehand and helped to make our short stay hassle free! Thanks :)
Great location, neat and tidy, can accomodate 4 people easily.
Didn't get to meet Katie and Christian, but didn't have any problem to pick up/give back the keys.
On the overall, highly recommended to discover the city, especially the old town.
Our guests made us feel welcome by having the flat neat and tidy upon our arrival and describing the lovely flat just as we found it... loved the central location...right in the thick of all of the activity, where we wanted to be during the fringe festival...picking up the keys was a breeze as Katie told us right where to go to collect them...only a very short walk from the flat...we hope to come here again.
Amazing location for the Fringe - most venues on the doorstep. Apartment was clean and comfortable and Katie and Christian were really accommodating. We had such a wonderful time in Edinburgh and the apartment suited us perfectly.
Ahead of our arrival Katie provided excellent descriptions of how things worked in the apartment. Although we didn't meet in person, she seemed especially friendly and was very professional. The apartment was very clean and was very comfortable to stay in. Katie and Christian even provided an infant cot and a few cute toys for our baby.
The location was excellent, steps away from the center of the Royal Mile. It was especially convenient for us, as we could walk to virtually all the sights we were interested in. Highly recommended!
Looking back at a great stay at Katie & Christians place. Spot on location, nice and light apartment. Communication with our hosts was very easy from start to end. It was great to meet them personally when we arrived, we felt very welcome. Edinburgh is an amazing city, very beautiful, full of great attractions, shops and restaurants. We couldn’t have wished for a better place to explore this gem. Katie & Christian thank you for a great stay, we couldn’t have a better home base. Needless to say we would recommend it to everybody.
They stayed a short time. No probs.
Christian and Katies were fantastic guests. Although I never had the chance to meet them, they were great communicators, and left the guest house great. We would love to have them back.
Katie and Christian are very neat and nice welcoming guests.
Everything is very clean left.
Guests that you gladly accept.
Katie was easy to schedule check in with. When we met she was pleasant and easy going. She left everything as clean as she found it. Thank you Katie!
Katie was a wonderful guest. She was quiet and respectful and shared some of her awesome job with us.
Katie was very flexible and good with the other guests.
