Central, quiet, well-equipped, comfortable, clean, easy - just like home. Clear instructions from our greeter Cathy to get to the flat from Waverley Station. Will certainly recommend it.

Excellent location, just a few steps from the Royal Mile but in a very quiet location. The apartment is very well equipped and nothing is missing. The bed and the sofa bed are comfortable and everthing works perfectly well.
A tip for future guests; the duvet for the sofa bed is stored in a bag under the main bed, in the bedroom !

Very comfortable flat just off the Royal Mile. Couldn't ask for a better location. Clear directions from Waverley Station would be helpful. Otherwise all was good.

We absolutely loved this flat! Its in a great central location and would definatly live to stay there again.
It is small but perfectly formed with a comfortable kind sized bed and a great shower.
Yes, there is a steep alley to navigate daily but it's to be expected in Edinburgh!

This is a nice flat in an excellent location for the Festival or for exploring Edinburgh. Very quiet at night and all facilities good
24 Aug 2015 Doncaster
We stayed in this flat for 5 nights during the festival. It's a quiet flat and perfectly positioned for all the fringe venues. It was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We would book this again.
The only negative was only one set of keys and as we were doing different things this made it tricky.

Beautifully kept flat in incredibly quiet location considering how close it is to the Royal Mile (a few yards away). Very comfortable and convenient.
