Good, cosy flat in new town
The small flat on Rose Street is right in the centre of new town and about 10 min walk from the Royal Mile.
The apartment offers everything necessary, including tea, coffee and sugar in the kitchen, so you don't have to buy them on a short stay. They also provide some DVDs, however, the TV was very difficult to get to work (remote control is somewhat hard to function).
But, more important: turn up the heat and you will get the flat cosy warm, which adds nicely to the charming living room with a sofa and 2 armchairs to enjoy an evening off the Pubs. We enjoyed that very much as it was raining for 3 days.

very central flat, nice and spacious.
We stayed here for two nights as a group of 5 friends. Flat is very central, lots of bars and restaurants on your doorstep and only 5 min walk to Princes St.
As other posts say, don't be worried by the fairly grim entrance door, inside the flat was bright and clean and well equipped. There was even tea/coffee and a pint of milk in the fridge for our arrival, which was a nice touch.
We were greeted at the flat by a lovely woman who briefed us on the flat door entry system etc.
Beds were very comfortable with plenty of extra pillows in one of the bedroom cupboards, The rooms were spacious and the twin has an ensuite bathroom which was a bonus with 5 women all trying to get ready at once! All in all a very comfortable and well presented flat. The only downside was the noise from people coming out the bars and clubs at night, we didn't notice until we were in bed and the house was quiet. My friends in the bedroom at the back were not bothered by this and on our second night we were out late anyway so we were coming in at the same time as everyone else so less of a problem then. I'd imagine if you were staying midweek this would be less of an issue, we were there friday and saturday. I suppose it is the sacrifice you expect to pay for such a central location.
Would recommend this apartment and would use it again if going with a group to enjoy the bars and clubs...would maybe look for a quieter location if going with my children at the weekend.

Quiet location but handy to everything
A short walk to buses and shopping. Comfortable, warm and sunny flat with everything supplied, like a home away from home. New TV and very handy to have a washing machine to keep up with clothes supply whilst travelling. Highly recommended for couples.

Great edinburgh Central town house
What a beautiful old edinburgh house to stay in to explore edinburgh. Near to bars, resturants and a theatre and easy walking distance to Central Edinburgh. Large kitchen and living room, great for socialising. Great house for a great price!

We were very pleased with the flat it was very clean modern and spacious with two bathrooms, the kitchen was well equipped. Although it was on the second floor there was a lift. Parking available outside free overnight from 5.30 pm to 8.30 am we paid in the mornings for an hour until we were ready to go off for the day. Parking was free all week end .There are various pubs and restaurants in walking distance we tried several all were reasonable price and good quality food. We walked to castle easily from the flat the location was excellent.

This flat was very beautiful and very well located.
Quite a few stairs (old people and kids def struggle with it) and a bit loud at night due to the high street being very busy... Other than that, 10/10.
Aga, the lady who did the meet and greet, was a pleasure to deal with.
I would most definitely book again

I stayed at this nice flat along with my wife and baby daughter.
Location was very good, close to supermarkets and restaurants and walking distance to most places around the city centre. No elevator (flat is on 1st floor though) and the building entrance not very exciting. However, the flat was lovely, very tidy, quiet, clean and cosy. I would defiantly stay there again, and I would highly recommend it.

Couldn't have been better. Everything worked out well. Booking was effortless and we had a very friendly meeter that gave us great advice on what to do in Edinburgh. Flat was very clean, absolutely centrally located and very comfortable. No minus points. Best place I ever stayed in.
