A Gem in the Old Town
Well located flat in the middle of Old Town with plenty of character. we'll be back.

convenient and peaceful
Excellent area to relax in, yet only minutes from the city centre. Convenient bus service, large Tesco nearby, petrol pump, pubs, bars, restaurants. Flat itself also thoughtfully designed, practical and comfortable. Everything thought of, right down to the measuring jug in the kitchen! Good water pressure in bath, the only downside was separate hot and cold taps in the bath sink. Detailed directions for everything in a folder, bus routes timetables, very professional dealing by Edinburgh flats through email.

Lovely, bright flat
My wife and I, and our dog, stayed her for a week and found it very pleasant. Although it's not in the city centre, it's only about a 15 minute walk to the old town, and buses 10 and 27 stop just round the corner. It's also a short walk to the shops in Tollcross, Bruntsfield and Morningside. The garden is lovely. The only downside is the kitchen isn't very well stocked - fine if you're only going to be cooking very basic meals, but if you're planning on cooking from scratch, you may need to bring some of your own utensils with you.

What a wonderful apartment this was. Upon arriving at the apartment we were greeted as agreed by the cleaning team, a lady called Aga. She was so wonderful, polite, courteous and very helpful. She even helped with our bags. A great first impression. When we had walked up the 2 flights of stairs (which sent as big an inconvenience as you would think) the apartment was spotless and very spacious. Having 2 large double bedrooms with ample wardrobe space in both. The kitchen is again spacious and very well equipped with all that we needed for our stay, even with a 12 month old. The landlord had even provided a high chair for our use. The lounge was again spacious with a very comfy sofa, big tv, DVD player and WiFi throughout the apartment.
Although there wasn't any designated parking for this apartment and you have to temporarily park your car on double yellows whilst you unload there is plenty of spaces within a 2 minute walk of the apartment to park for free. We had the car out 3 times in our 6 days and each time found a space easily.
Everything about our stay was fantastic and made our visit to Edinburgh even more special. The landlord was very helpful every step of the way with communication excellant via calls and texts.
We would definitely recommend this apartment.

comfortable flat in excellent location
Once again, Edinburgh Flats provided us with an excellent flat in a central, though quiet location. Lots of storage, a well equipped, if small, kitchen, and attractively furnished main rooms. We were told in advance that the hall would be dark, but the main rooms had lots of natural light and both had views of flowers and a garden.
As the flat had just newly come onto the market, there are a few teething problems, such as a bathroom mirror way too high up to see yourself! We would be happy to stay in this flat again.

Had a lovely stay at the flat, spacious and clean. Only problem we had was no wifi but owners said they did were sorting it. The mattresses in the smaller bedroom could do with being replaced as they sink in the middle our children didn't say this but we felt them when giving cuddles etc.
Overall no major issues, just a few tidy ups on paintwork and mattresses.

Excellent, highly recommended to any couple visiting the city!
My partner and I visited the city for the first time quite recently and fell in love and have always wanted to go back but city breaks can be quite expensive and it's difficult to get time off together, we managed to get a long weekend together and decided if the price was right we would treat ourselves to a relaxing weekend away. The prices for the hotels and guest houses were really pricy and after spending hours looking I came accross Edinburgh flats;decent website, lots of photos and easy to navigate around and perfect price!! The people I liased with were helpful, friendly and nothing was too much to ask. The journey there was a quite stressful one (maybe going straight from work on a Friday night was not the best idea) with 3 hour delays and a drunken man on the rails just outside leeds, finally arrived into Edinburgh at 11:30 to be greeted by rain and a huge long line for the taxis. After waiting half an hour in the rain we made it to the apartment Marcien our greeter met us at the door and showed us around, he was lovely and polite and was understanding of our late arrival. The apartment itself was absolutely beautiful, a home from home and was great to be somewhere so relaxing but at the same time not over the top, I couldn't ask for anywhere better! The facilities were exceptional! Finished to a high standard and amenities you wouldn't expect (great tv, wifi, dishwasher, cv/speakers) and the nice touches; Scottish monopoly, Edinburgh fringe art work and plenty of books to choose from. The apartments were located in old town (a part of the city we had only just touched upon and not really explored, we were so happy with just a 20 minute walk to princes Street and local amenities around the corner it was perfect. I'd highly recommend this to anyone and would definitely return here again the next time we visit! 5* out of 5 from us!!!!

Cosy flat close to the centre of Edinburgh
We really enjoyed our stay in this flat. It is a 15 minute walk to the centre, so you don´t need a bus to get to the city. The flat is fully equipped, there is a heating which we could adjust according to the weather and there are really warm duvets in case of cold nights. It is quiet there and you can enter the community garden through the living room. The landlady was nice, she was waiting for us eventhough our arrival was rather late, at 10 pm. We kindly recommend this accommodation.
