Our portfolio is wide and varied, offering rental accommodations on a self-catering basis in Edinburgh with a meet and greet service for your ease.

About Edinburgh Flats

Since Karen Blair took over Edinburgh Flats in 2015, the company’s portfolio has increased in variety, offering high-quality self-catering accommodation in and around central Edinburgh. With over 30 years’ experience in the property industry, Karen saw the potential in running her own business and making Edinburgh Flats a great success.

At Edinburgh Flats we have an extraordinary portfolio of rental properties in Edinburgh. Majestic, vibrant, romantic, multicultural, and always welcoming. There’s not enough words to describe this astonishing city!

What we offer

We offer rental accommodation for short breaks or longer stays for as little as £70 per night. We work throughout the whole year, including Edinburgh Festival and Hogmanay for varying party sizes.

Our booking process is very easy and simple. All you need to do is simply choose one of our wonderful apartments and your holiday can begin!

Why Edinburgh Flats is different

We pride ourselves on offering excellent customer service from start to finish, with one-to-one and personal treatment to each of our guests and property owners. Unlike other companies, we do offer a personal meet and greet service to guests on arrival and are on call for any issues they may have.

All our rental properties are comprehensively described with clear information, easy-to-use icons and photographs, map positions and, most importantly, visible pricing.

In addition to the details of the property, there is additional information such as relevant distances to local areas, nearby tourist spots, restaurants and cafes, supermarkets and transport details to help you.
