Loved Edinburgh!

Two friends and I stayed at this great apartment for four nights in October. The location was ideal and the apartment itself was just fabulous. Very clean, luxurious and outfitted perfectly. We all agreed that we wanted to live there! We used one of the city tour bus lines as our transportation since one of their stops was just two blocks away, and it was very convenient. We went on the literary pub tour and had a wonderful time. Recommend it! All in all we couldn't recommend this apartment more highly.

Excellent luxury apartment near shops and attractions

We stayed at the apartment for 3 nights in August and had a lovely time. The interior design, furniture and fittings were all of high standard and made us feel at home. Everything was clean and well maintained. The apartment is a short walk from all shops and tourist attractions which was a bonus! I think the listing description and photos accurately reflect the appearance of this apartment and is even better when seeing it for yourself. I will definitely be recommending this property to my friends and relatives.

Amazing Accommodation!

Stayed here for 3 nights during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with my girlfriend and best mate and we couldn't have found a better place. The 2 bedroom apartment is very spacious with contemporary design and all mod cons. The apartment was as described and the photos gave a great indication of what to expect (the lounge is huge). Great views of George Street and the Castle out the window with a balcony to boot. The place was clean and tidy and it felt like we were staying at someones home. Only a 10-20 minute walk to all the different Fringe venues which gave us an opportunity to see some great sites. Lots of great pubs and restaurants to choose from, literally spoiled for choice! Definitely would recommend this wonderful apartment to friends and family alike. If you are reading this review and still sitting on the fence trust me, you won't be disappointed, book it!

Amazing location, beautiful apartment!

First of all Morris, the property owner, was amazingly kind and gracious with every email/request/etc (not to mention hilarious). The location was perfect, within walking distance of a lot of attractions that we wanted to see; Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street Gardens, Holyrood, Arthur's Seat, Colton Hill, high end and boutique shopping, fantastic restaurants, Rose Street...I can go on and on. The apartment was gorgeous. For the rate we payed I feel we definitely got our money's worth. I stayed with my husband and two friends and we could not have been happier. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and it had every amenity and extra we could dream up. The gourmet kitchen is a cooks dream. Being that the apartment was in the heart of the city we could not believe how quiet it was in the master suite for sleeping. I even loved the wallpaper in the bathroom!!! I highly recommend staying at this apartment, for as long as you can...we didn't want to leave. Thank you Morris and Edinburgh for helping us have a most amazing stay!
