Landlord of a 4 bedroom shared flat where the rooms are let out on short term stays to lodgers. (I don't actually live in the flat myself, but I'm here at the end of a phone should problems arise!)
We had an enjoyable, comfortable stay at James (website hidden) was clean and well maintained and only a short bus ride from the city centre. James was informative with directions to the flat and the local transport and kindly answered any questions we had.
I would recommend staying here for anybody trying to find a place to stay in Edinburgh.
James was excellent with communication, the apartment was perfect for us, loads of buses into the centre to enjoy the festival also great walks just a few minutes from the apartment. The apartment itself was clean warm and very comfortable, delighted to have use of the kitchen, but best of all was the price, an exceptional deal all round, would highly recommend it. Thanks again James.
My friend and I really enjoyed staying in James' flat. The three other long term tenants are super nice and willing to help with sightseeing questions. The flat is located in a nice part of town easily accessible by bus. James is not located in Edinburgh but is very speedy at responding to messages or questions. The only real issue we had was the there were no sheets for our bed when we got there. However, with the help of one of the other tenants we were able to find a solution. All together a very comfortable, nice place to stay!
The apartment was very nice. There was a spacious bedroom with a large bed. Finding the apartment was much easier because of James's. Many emails. He had Kate waiting at the apartment when we arrived to give us the keys and explain any details. It was south of town but bus connections were very simple. Would stay there again.
Experience very good. For repeat. The flat was very clean and nice. We were very good!!! =)
It was a great stay, which we truly enjoyed! The room was spacious, the flat was modern and everything was in already (internet, Sky TV, kitchen utensils,...). I can wholeheartedly recommend this place!
Evan though we were only staying 1 night James was very accomidating and worked with us to agree the best way to get the keys at short notice. The appartment was as described and both clean and pleasant. Upon arrival James was justvat the end of the phone to answer questions. A little out of town but with a maximum bus fare of £1.40 in Edingburgh was served well by a number of bur routes and a maximum 10 walk from the furthest bus stop and 1 minute to the nearest.
Had a great time in Edinburgh, and having this great apartment as our home base was definitely a part of that. We were there during the summer, so we had the flat nearly to ourselves, and were able to use the beautiful kitchen to cook ourselves breakfast before heading out for adventures for the day. The living room has a beautiful view of the city, and we enjoyed the lingering summer sunsets. Great neighborhood just the right distance from the city center, and very accessible by public transit.
James was great and very accommodating. We booked last minute and he was not phased at all, he got it all organized very quickly. The apartment is very well organized and there is everything there you need (just have to take towels.
It was really close to town and the buses are regular and resonabley priced.
The apartment is great value for money.
I would recommend this as a great place to stay.
Nice place, quiet location. James was very kind, efficient and accommodating.
