Perfectly located apartment
We stayed in this apartment during the Fringe and Royal Tattoo period, we found the accommodation was perfect for two couples, everything was lovely and clean and modern. Although a basement flat there is a mini-courtyard outside which made a difference, especially when the sun came out! I would highly recommend this area as there are very good services for getting around Edinburgh quickly by bus (we bought an East Lothian bus "Ridacard" which paid for itself within 4 days). There were many shops and restaurants all within walking distance.

As usual a perfect setting for visiting the fringe. The flat was clean and a home from home experience.

Absolutely fantastic stay. Came for the last night of the Tattoo and the end of the Fringe. The apartment could not have been better - a dozen steps from the Royal Mile and equiped with everything you could need. Even the 4 floors of spiral staircase couldn't spoil the experience! Very comfortable lounge overlooking the junction of St Mary's Street with the Royal Mile, with Arthur's Seat off to the right. Kitchen, dining room and bathroom all excellent and bedroom with loads of storage. Bed could have been a bit more comfortable but this did nothing to spoil our experience. All in all, a brilliant location in a brilliant city. Thank you Janet and Alastair

Great Central flat
Our stay for the Edinburgh Fringe and Book Festival were made all the more enjoyable knowing that we had a wonderful flat to wake up to and go back to in the evening.

Great Central Flat
Shahid's flat was excellently placed right on the Royal Mile so in the thick of everything that was going on at the Edinburgh Fringe. It was great to sit and have breakfast with all the activity right outside the window. For those who like their sleep, the bedrooms are situated at the rear of the building so well away from the revelry that continues late into the night! Definitely recommended as a place to stay in Edinburgh

A jewel in Edinburghs crown
We couldn't have wished for a better location within the beautiful City of Edinburgh for visiting the Fringe/ Festival. What a welcome we received - we opened the fridge to see a bottle of sparling vino, smoked salmon, oatcakes, bottle of milk, tea/coffee in the kitchen etc. Jane couldn't have been more helpful; she was determined that we wanted for nothing....and we didn't!
Every event we had booked was entirely walkable, we never set foot on any public transport - apart from the train which brought us from near Hull. Even the journey from the railway station was walkable - with considerable baggage too for a nine night stay. Our journey to the flat took us through the gorgeous old town, a bustling international spectacle. The meadows was right at the bottom of the road where the flat was located, a huge expanse of grass, great for kids who are footie fans, no shortage of space to kick a football around at all. A little walk beyond took us to Edinburgh Castle and a night at the Tattoo - lovely!
The flat had everything we needed to feel like you weren't actually staying in a rental property - it somehow felt like home. Beautifully presented and squeaky clean, it appeared to combine all the mod cons with tradition perfectly. Easily spacious enough for a family of four, even with one son at 6 foot 4! No shortage of supermarkets - one within five minutes walk in every direction virtually - a co op, Sainsburys, Tesco etc etc. Victor Hugo, a famous deli was virtually on our doorstep too and wandering past it almost felt you were transported to Paris - probably attributable to the fact our stay was combined with fantastic weather!.
Would we go back? When the list of events comes out next year for the Festival and Fringe, our fingers will hit the keyboard. Thanks to Jane, Lenore and Janet for making our holiday a truly rememorable one ;)

Excellent location with easy access to City
The flat had everything we needed and was located in a suburb close to regular bus and train services into the City. We had no problem getting home after late shows. The agents were very efficient and friendly.

Good central flat
The apartment was well located with good facilities pleasantly furnished with secure parking. We enjoyed our stay and would use again if in Edinburgh.

Great well equipped apartment
A great very well equipped apartment. The rooms were spacious, clean and exactly as described. The kitchen was very well equipped with all utensils required for most cooking and baking tasks. The greeter, Geoff, was very helpful and friendly. The location is very convenient with easy walking access to the royal mile, castle and other popular locations.

I cant tell you much about this flat as I sat looking out of the window for much of my stay :) but seriously - communication with owners was great. They met us and explained how everything worked. They left us some tea and milk etc which made us feel at home right away. They also left us maps and a guide to the fringe festival and local restaurants etc. 4 mins walk to the number 10 bus and 10 mins walk to Asda and a fishmongers. Secure underground parking for two cars however we only had one clicker to open the gate. Also we only got 2 sets of keys and another set would have been handy. Everything worked and instructions were clear. We were well prepared as practised self caterers but it was nice that washing up/cleaning supplies had been left including dishwasher tablets, tea towels. Owners seemed to have made a real effort to supply us with things we may have forgotten. Beds were comfy, showers were good, bath is a nice size. An amazing flat that exceeded our expectations.Hope to return soon.
