Our stay was very comfortable. The apartment was conveniently located, airy, well lit and well furnished. Upon arrival, the caretaker Diane's husband David arrived promptly and helped us settle in. The flat comes with a complete manual of everything so operating any white good is not a problem at all. The apartment is kid friendly with board games available. Overall a very good experience and we would highly recommend this place.
Uwe is a fantastic host. He was very accommodating, and we couldn't have asked for a better apartment!
We thoroughly recommend him, and look forward to using the apartment again some time!
This house is really convenient, close to princess street and most tourist sights. Additionally the bed is cozy.
The host made us feel welcome by giving information about the appartment and by leaving a carton of milk in the fridge.
The appartment has a stunning view of Holyrood Park. A short walk from the apartment leads to the park.
Uwe met us at the door before the scheduled check in time and helped us carry our bags along the lavender lined walkway up to the apartment. The apartment is in a good location at the top of Calton Hill Road. It has beautiful views from all windows and good access to the Royal Mile and New Town.
One should know that there is a flight of stairs to the front door from the road and two flights inside to the apartment.
There is no parking on Calton Hill Road but there is free parking nearby on Waterloo Place between 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. Parking anywhere in Edinburgh between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. is challenging and expensive.
Uwe was very patient with us. We arrived later than announced. The flat was equipped with more than the essentials, including oil and cacao powder! He offered to call him should we need anything.
Heartwarming welcome by Uwe upon our arrival. The apartment gives a pleasant vibe and makes one feel at home. Uwe showed us around the apartment and shared where the nearest supermart was. Most of the attractions which we planned to go are indeed walking distance from the apartment. We enjoyed a nice hike to Calton hill on a breezy morning. It takes around 30 minutes for a slow walk to Royal Mile and from there you can reach Edinburgh Castle as well.
A cab from Waverley station costs around 5-6 pounds. Cabs are more affordable than the bus for a big group of 5-6 people (no more than 8 pounds to Princes Street).
- comfortable beds and pillows
- WIFI in working condition
- beautiful views from the apartment
- washing machine and dryer in working condition, with laundry baskets provided.
- plenty of hangers and cupboard space for us to hang our clothes
- friendly and approachable host
- booklet providing instructions on how to use the applications in the apartment, WIFI details was very much appreciated
- maps, books and even umbrellas are provided
- heater boiler takes some time to adjust as there were times when we had no hot water in the en-suite bathroom(master bedroom)
- ironing board was provided, but there were no stand hence we had to kneel on the floor to iron which was a bit uncomfortable but still manageable
Points to note:
- the lift was not working on our second day but it was repaired by the next day.
- its better to walk to the main road if you want to get a cab
Indeed worthy of the Scottish Tourist Board recommendation.
Ideal location and very well equiped. We enjoyed our stay at Uwe's place! The appartement is located in a quiet lane, and everything is in walking distance. Easily to reach with public transportation. Uwe welcomed us with a welcome package of cookies and some stuff in the fridge. Large appartement; easily fits 6 or even 8 guests. We could leave our luggage at the house on the day of depart and picked it up around noon. Thanks Uwe for the smooth communication, we will return if we visit Edinburgh again! David (certainly will take my Son next time, he loved the foto's of the secret room with the door hidden in the library)
Uwe is a very friendly and flexible guy. The apartment was very clean, kitchen well supplied and the beds were good. Apartment has a real spectacular view over northern Edinburgh and is very close to all sorts of must see parts in Edinburgh, such as Calton Hill, Holyrood, Royal Mile etc.
A beautiful flat which we instantly fell in love with. Uwe was very friendly and helpful. We'd certainly recommend this property and Uwe and look forward to coming back again.
