This is the perfect location for exploring Old Town Edinburgh (and it’s not that much of a walk to get to Princes Street). It overlooks Greyfriars Kirkyard and there are lovely views from this charming and comfortable flat. But its main advantage is the fact that it is near so many things we wanted to see - a short walk from the Royal Mile, across the street from the National Museum, around the corner from Grassmarket. Martin could not have been a more considerate host; his instructions were clear and he stayed in communication with us (although we had no issues with the flat). He also thought of the little things that enhanced our stay: a nice collection of Scottish DVDs, tea and coffee and Scottish shortbread waiting for us on our arrival. The bed was comfortable, the washing machine worked fine, the water got really hot! We loved our time here and would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone (as long as you can climb stairs!).
Fabulous, central location, cosy and convenient apartment.
This apartment worked well for three of us. We spent little time there as we were out and about visiting our daughter. The beds were comfortable and it was amazingly convenient for everything as well as having lovely views over the Old Town. The central heating kept stopping, but Martin talked us through re-setting it and once we did this the flat warmed up very quickly.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Glad you enjoyed the Old Town location and views. Sorry that the boiler needed to be reset during your stay; we include details in the Guest Information Folder with instructions about the heating, appliances, etc. and we're on hand by text, whatsapp or phone if there are any further questions during a guest's stay.
Perfect location in Edinburgh
This was the perfect flat for our stay in Edinburgh thanks to the very convenient and quiet location. It’s close to the royal mile and all the old town action, but tucked away in a quiet corner so you can get away from the hubbub when you’ve had enough. It was clean and had the nice extra of a washing machine, which worked well.
Incredibly well located property....close to the hustle and bustle of Old Town without the noise. Communication with managers was fantastic, even when we hit a roadblock (due to our arriving flight being cancelled). Check in process was extremely easy, with detailed instructions that left no room for error.
My mom and I really enjoyed the location of this property. Bobby the dog and Greyfriar's made excellent landmarks. The apartment was perfect for the two of us. The view was lovely, even though it's a cemetery. It was peaceful/quiet, although there was quite a bit of pedestrian traffic in this famous cemetery. In addition, the communication from the manager was absolutely excellent. There are probably some updates the apartment could use, like a living room chair and more comfortable sofa bed, but I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, and we're glad you enjoyed the leafy outlook. We like the central location of the apartment with no street noise (because it's set away from the busy Forrest Road and George IV Bridge). You're right that the area is popular with pedestrians because of Greyfriar's Bobby. This apartment has a double bed in the bedroom and a sofabed in the living room. The sofabed is of course not as comfortable as a full bed, but we're always happy to recommend e.g. a two-bedroom apartment for guests who prefer to have full-size beds (rather than a sofabed).
Cozy and peaceful
This is a great flat to stay in and explore Edinburgh.
The door keys were safely stored in a key box by the door and the owner sent us instructions prior to our arrival. Clean flat, good wifi connection and quiet at night. The mattress could use some upgrade but it's definitely not the worst. There are a lot of great spots for dining in the area that are within five minutes walking distance. There's a news shop (convenience shop) across the street, Postal office too, and a supermarket ( Sainsbury's ) nearby. We simply loved the neighborhood, and enjoyed our stay in this cozy flat.
A bright, centrally located one-bedroom apartment (sleeps 1–3) on the second floor of an architecturally significant building (B-listed) on Forrest Hill, a quiet lane off George IV Bridge, close to the historic Royal Mile and within easy walking distance of the major tourist attractions, festival venues, shops, night-life and transport connections.
