"Gorgeous apartment in the middle of all the action"
This apartment was excellent value and Annette is an exceptionally nice host. The place was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and located really close to the main areas in the old town of Edinburgh. I would highly recommend this property to a group of friends going on a holiday to Edinburgh.
Thanks so much for staying with us and for your nice comments!

"Cracking apartment - clean and modern"
The apartment is great value for the number of people it can hold. It's clean, modern and Annette was very pleasant and kind enough to let us check out later than originally agreed. Highly recommended.
Thanks again for staying with ua and hope to see you again on your next visit!
