The Lothians region
Edinburgh is a year round source of entertainment.
At its heart is The Edinburgh Festival, a cultural explosion which takes place in the city in August each year. It is made up of a variety of festivals and events including the International Festival, The Fringe Festival, Edinburgh Book Festival, Edinburgh Military Tattoo, Jazz Festival and Edinburgh Mela.
Later in the year is Edinburgh's month-long Christmas celebration which culminates with the world famous Hogmanay party.
Spring time sees Ceilidh Culture, the Science Festival and the Edinburgh Film Festival providing the entertainment while the Children's Festival starts the summer.
Edinburgh has strong road and rail links and is the perfect place from which to explore the rest of Scotland
The apartment is 2 minutes walk from one of the most renowned fringe theatre venues, the Pleasance Theatre. During the festival season, it hosts day and night performances from worldwide comedians plus many kids' daytime events and shows.
Also on the doorstep are the Salisbury Crags, from which you can see all of Edinburgh and the Firth of Forth.
Within 10 minutes walk north-eastwards you'll find The National Museum of Scotland, Greyfriars Tolbooth and The Meadows (a great park for kids); and north through Holyrood park you'll find Dynamic Earth, the Royal Mile, Holyrood House and the Scottish Parliament.

"Handy Location for exploring Edinburgh"
My wife and I rented this property for 5 nights to rediscover Edinburgh and also to visit Muirfield for the British Open Golf. The apartment was comfortable, although the warm weather required the windows to be open when inside and, therefore, the traffic noise was quite significant in the living room.
The apartment is well situated with the Royal Mile just a few minutes walk and several restaurants easily accessible. The Tesco Metro just 100 yards away was very convenient.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to others. However, you need to like walking and be able to climb stairs.
Without appearing disparaging of our wonderful capital city, it's not often that we have cause to repent the sunshine and its necessity of having windows open to cool the apartment! (Just as well the bedroom is so quiet at the back!)
Thanks for your lovely review and great tripadvisor score.

"Felt like home"
My dad was travelling to Edinburgh to attend my husbands graduation. To make everything easy for everyone, I arranged everyone's accommodation visiting from overseas (US). My dad being quite discerning (some would say picky!) and having never been abroad, it was important that I find a place that is quality (but not pricey), convenient to city centre (but not noisy) and above all- no fuss. This holiday let ticked all the boxes. Thanks to Susie, the booking process was easy, checking-in and checking-out was straight forward, and returning the deposit was prompt. According to my dad (who is not so computer savvy so he has asked me to include this in the review), the flat 'felt like home', which means a lot because he is such a home-body and his creature comforts are very important to him. The only minor complaint was that the bedroom curtain would not block out the midnight sun completely and it appears as though prior guests had attempted to fix the problem themselves. He wasn't that big an issue for him so didn't want to bother Susie about it. There was one funny problem that we did have to contact Susie for- it seems as though a previous guest had removed the instructions for the wifi in the welcome pack- but Susie was able to text the code instantly so no problem. Just shows you how much she wants you to enjoy a care-free stay. My dad says the next time he visits he definitely wants to stay here again and Susie advised there are discounts for repeat visits, so all the better!
Thanks for the reassuring review. It can be worrying when you're choosing a rental for somebody else so I'm glad your father was so comfortable. There's a discount for repeat bookings so please bear us in mind for his next trip!

"Cosy apartment with on of the best views of Edinburgh!"
It was my first time in Scotland, I stayed here for 5 nights with my parents. The apartment is very well located, in the city centre yet in a quite area. It is a 10-15 minute walk to Princess Street. The bedroom window has a spectacular view of the Arthur's seat. The apartment was very functional and comfortable to stay. I would definitely recommend it. The host, Susie is very friendly and helpful !
Thanks for the great review. The view from the bedroom window is indeed astounding!

"Nice flat close to the city center"
We rented the apartment for a week early in November and were happy with it. It is approximately a 10-minute walk to the Royal Mile which makes it quite easy to explore the city. The apartment is confortable and cosy.
I like that you found the apartment cosy. It's a modern building but still a warm place to stay. Thank you for your review.
