Allan's apartment was charming and clean, and we really enjoyed it! The location was also excellent: just steps from the Royal Mile, Waverley train station, Princes St. Park, the National Gallery, as well as a grocery, pharmacy, and fun restaurants on Southbridge. Thank you!
Amazing location right in the heart of the Royal Mile! Very convenient to walk to all attractions and make the most of what Edinburgh has to offer. We picked up the key from the pub downstairs the check in and out was very smooth. The flat itself has enough space for 4 people with two double bedrooms and lovely living room/ kitchen area overlooking the High Street. I would highly recommend it!
The location is great, a block from both the Royal Mile and Waverly Station, but because the flat is at the rear of the building, you're not disturbed by traffic noise.
The apartment is creative and friendly. Allan is generous with what he leaves of his belongings that he doesn't mind your using.. cd's and dvd's, his printer, spices and oil in the kitchen, -- all that makes it easier to feel at home.
This place fit us perfectly;we loved it! BUT I would not recommend it to people who are not nimble (narrow spiral stair to bath and bedroom on ground floor) or to people who are super clean.
We didn't actually meet Allan as he was traveling himself during our visit to Edinburgh. The apartment there is adorable and the location is PERFECT!
Wonderful flat in a great location! Would definitely recommend staying here.
The location is perfect and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. Allan is really nice and kind, thank you very much!!!
This apartment has an absolutely fantastic location. You are close to everything which really saves on time. We felt we were in the heart of Edinburgh and we really enjoyed the ambience. There are lots of great restaurants just a short distance away. We really liked being able to see the city on early morning walks when the streets are all deserted. Alan left us milk, green grapes and cookies, which was a nice welcome.
One note of caution. On arrival at the airport, we took the Airlink 100 bus which dropped us off at the Waverly Bridge. To get to the apartment, DO NOT TAKE COCKBURN STREET!!! It is extremely steep and full of pedestrians. We were absolutely exhausted hiking up this hill with our suitcases, only to proceed to go downhill on High Street after we reached the summit. Instead take Jeffrey Street, which is relatively flat and very close to the apartment.
My family of 5 was very much looking forward to the apartment in Edinburgh ... we were not disappointed! In fact, we'd have been happy to stay there for the whole of our vacation (were we not traveling on to other parts of the UK)! Allan was very helpful and the apartment was perfect!
Great apartment with everything needed for a great stay in a central location that manages to avoid the drawbacks associated with being in the middle of the action.
The host is a nice guy as well.
The apartment was great! Right in the middle of it all on the royal mile. Allan was quick to respond and very accommodating. The only drawback was the internet cut out on our second day, which was only a slight inconvenience. Thanks for the great spot!
