"Fantastic apartment, great location, amazing view."
The apartment was beautifully furnished and has a great view of the Edinburgh castle. Its location at Grassmarket was perfect as there were shops and restaurants close by. All major sights were walking distance from the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment and the owner, Tina, was a wonderful and helpful host.

"Great Apartment, Great Location, Lovely Owners"
Stayed here for 2 nights back in Feb 2011.
Can only say how nice it was, Tina was very accommodating to our request to use apartment earlier, and leave a cpl of hours later on our departure day.
Location is spot on... in lovely square with great restaurants and bars.
5 mins walk to the Mile and 10 minutes further to Princes street.
Would stay there again and recommend to everyone .

"Best View in Town - Fantastic Location"
This location can't be beat. It is located on Grassmarket and the view out the window is of Edinburgh Castle. Everything is within walking distance from the apartment. There are great restaurants across the street. Don't miss "Made In Italy" - for the best pizza ever. The Fiddler's Arm pub across the street has a local fiddle player from the highlands that was a real treat to listen to.
We highly recommend staying here. The owner was very friendly and met us when we arrived (even though our train was cancelled and we were 5 hours late) and had everything in order for us. There is a kitchen, a washer and dryer, all well equipped.
This is the most centralized and convenient location in the city and we would stay here again anytime.
