"Perfect apartment, perfect location, perfect landlord!"
My wife and I and our 2 small children, aged 7 and 18 months, stayed in this wonderful apartment for 5 nights in June of this year. I cannot write positively enough about this place and the terrific people who own and run it. Let's begin with Reza, the owner. I am very picky when it comes to accommodation for my family, and Reza was very willing to jump on the phone with me, calling from America, to discuss the features of the apartment. Let me say that the pictures don't do the apartment justice. It is spacious, private, and the views from the kitchen and living room are terrific. All 3 bedrooms are roomy and very well appointed. My daughter had the unique room with inbuilt bed and ladder and absolutely loved it.
One of the concerns I raised with Reza was the location. We have stayed in Edinburgh before and always on the Royal Mile and this seemed removed from that. It is, but wonderfully so. The Royal Mile is a short walk across the bridge, very accessible, and the apartment gives a wonderful reprieve from the hustle and bustle. The castle etc are very easily accessed from the apartment (even for us with 2 small kids and a stroller), but you are in your own delightful slice of Edinburgh where the apartment is located - down the stairs and around the corner is great shopping, upscale cafes & restaurants. And it is a very safe area - I had a night away from the family on business in London and knew they were safe and sound.
Great owner, great apartment, great location - and great apartment manager. Jon works with Reza to make sure everything is ship shape with the place. Jon met us at the apartment, showed us how everything opens and shuts, and told us to get in touch if we needed anything. A couple of times we had trouble with the key in the front door and called Jon in. He was there in a few minutes and replaced the lock immediately. He had fabulous suggestions for us to see the real Edinburgh and we took him up on his suggestions much to our benefit.
I often have business in Edinburgh and if possible, we will never stay anywhere else ever again. In short, fantastic apartment, fantastic location, fantastic owner, and fantastic manager. Thanks Reza and Jon for a wonderful stay.
I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and will be welcome back to stay anytime! Many thanks. Reza
