    ExceptionalThe place is absolutely awesome! Highly recommended. I love the location except the place we got it was in a narrow ally but English called it close, the building is so old and it is so hard to go up because of the spiral staircase . The best part is the unit itself. Clean, furnitures are well kept and updated. The design and wall frames are so cute. The toilet is ok except that the shower room is small, i am petite but I can hardly moved around. Overall I will give an average of 90%.

    Brilliant location!The location can't get any better! 5-10 minutes walk from the train station and at the center of the city. The windows overlook the main pedestrian street (High St) - great for people watching. Loud sounds can be heard from the street, but it wasn't an issue for me with the comfortable beds and rooms. Although it is self check-in, it is fairly straightforward and easy. Accommodation was clean, and plenty of equipment in the kitchen to cook a light meal.

    Clean but In need of update, particularly the kitchen as it has seen better days! Cupboards are showing signs of water and heat damage and glass table very unsteady. Great location though, 5 mins to Royal Mile, 10-15 to Princess Street / Waverley station and only 2 mins to the Meadows which is a lovely park in the city - perfect for kids

    Brief return trip Edinburgh”

    After touring the highlands returned to Edinburgh and rented this flat. Perfect location, perfect size worked out fantastically. It was close to several restaurants and transportation is just a small walk down the street. Also it was great to see tour leaders tell stories to their group feet from the close’s access door.

    It was difficult to get into the bath for the shower and the side was to high, especially people with disabilities. To pick up the key was a little inconvenient especially when you have luggage, as the apartment that we were staying in was another 15 minutes walk away.

    We loved this place. There are not enough words to describe how fantastic this place was. We were right on the Royal Mile and within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. The beds were comfortable and the view was that of the Royal Mile. We loved it so much that we wanted to live there. I would recommend this place to everyone!

    Great place. Very spacious, well lighted. Complete with laundry facilities, kitchen. We had some initial issues with the hot shower and toilet but we eventually figured it out, I would suggest that the host put in a list of how to in the room :) Location, location, location! This is just a few steps away from the Royal Mile and a few minutes walk to several tour meeting points & shopping strip (Princes St.) as well as the Waverley train station so, I couldn't ask for a better place! All my pre and post booking inquiries were responded to very efficiently so that is definitely a big plus point for this.

    Misstake by the selection of an Hotel ”

    No staff, self service, the valuation of the point staff make no sense Not easy to communicate and find the right location due to Difference between Agoda address, Google map location link and mail from the company I have search an Hotel and receive this self service apartment in the selection, maybe need to make a better separation between the type of the objects e.g. Hotel, Apartment, backpacker logis etc. The mobile app used for the first time to book is probably part of my mistake by the selection as well

    Cosy and comfortable apartment ”

    I originally thought that the listed address was the actual address of the property, but it’s not. Only when I submitted my ID Copy then I was given the address and access instructions. It is much far away from the railway station when compared to the listed address (which is the office). Taking a bus for about 15-20 mins is required. Other than the location, all things are good. The access instructions are clear and accurate. Prompt responses from the host. Microwave oven is available. It’s quiet nearby. It’s clean and comfortable.

    Recommended with caution!”

    It is a wonderfully spacious apartment right in the heart of everything and the castle is just up the street! The apartment is in an old building hence its wonderful character but the windows are thin and so you can hear the party goers and people down in the street sometimes until 2 or 3 in the morning. The bathroom is really built for tall people, shower is hard to reach, bath is tall (so if you are older you might have problems lifting your leg over, my mum did) and the water pressure from the taps is not great as is the water temperature, cool. The shower temperature and pressure is good. The toilet is tricky to flush and you have to hold it down for 20 seconds. The apartment is comfortable especially the bed and really clean. If you don't mind the little flaws then go for it as its a super location and the price isn't bad.
