Good communication and efficient flexible check-in. Flat 15 mins walk to the main attractions. Parking around the flat a bit difficult to find but we left our car a little further down the road (10 mins walk) in a sidestreet where there were no parking restrictions so that worked out well.. Everything worked in the flat - good hot water, internet, cookng and a nice welcome pack. Flat was very clean and the (new?) bed was good. Great views of Arthur's Seat and close to Holyrood Park
host was fine, met us on time, apartment was fine.
location was not great, run-down street & building
Having in mind that you booked a basic room, everything was excellent. Especially Victoria, she's very friendly, helpful and flexible. The goodies in the fridge, the tea and the fruits were a very warm welcome! I enjoyed may stay at such a amazing place. Thanks a lot.
The flat is in a very convenient location. Very nice because it is private. Everything is there, cooking facilities, washing facilities, dishwasher, in walking distance from city centre and Arthur's seat. Supermarket around the corner. It is great except for the beds.........tough nights on those mattresses.
Response from Victoria:
Thanks for the feedback, the bed was due for upgrading and we have now replaced it with a new frame and mattress so it is much more comfortable
The apartment was spacious, bright and in a good location to access Edinburgh - we didn't get the bus but it was only about a fifteen minute walk, either along the road or a more pleasant walk partly along the canal which brings you out near the city. A taxi ride home to save tired legs was only about £7.
There is a Nandos across the road, with a few other fast food and cheap pub chain restaurants if you are looking for something quick and easy, or the blue pub on the corner looked nice, though we didn't eat there. There is a small Sainsburys around the corner for anything else you need, although Victoria had kindly left milk, fruit and orange juice in the fridge.
The corner location has nice views down the canal and we were able to get a nice cool breeze through the apartment on warm evenings. We did find the bed in the main bedroom quite uncomfortable, but from the other comments it seems this has now been replaced.
Just as an aside, beware of the parking wardens. We had the "scratch card" parking permits in our windscreen on the first day, all correctly filled out and clearly displayed, but still got a ticket. When we wrote in and challenged it, (with photo evidence showing the permits), they claimed that the permits had been "partially obscured" (not true) but they would cancel the ticket as a courtesy on this occasion, fortunately, so be cautious about the positioning of your permits so as not to give them any reason to give you a ticket!
We would recommend this apartment to others and would stay again.
Victoria was very helpful and communicated well and arranged for Mark to meet us. The apartment is comfortable, convenient and we found it ideal for our stay. The other people living in the building were friendly and welcoming and added to the experience. Nice view of canal and good bus transport into the city.
We had a very nice stay in the flat. Victoria was very friendly and pointed us in the direction of good places to visit. The flat was lovely, well equipped and most importantly situated in a great location only 5 minutes from the royal mile. Free weekend parking was also a big advantage.
Really enjoyed the stay, would definitely recommend to people looking for a stay in Edinburgh.
Victoria is very kind and flexible host. We have had a lovely experience in our trip. The flat was extremely clean, comfortable for us and very warm. Very nice surprise to open the fridge and find the goodies :). Perfect location to go walking to the center of the city. Very nice area.
Thanks for all!
Paqui and Over.
