“Would definitely return”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2016

The apartment situated on the 1st floor is in a quiet, convenient location and it was refreshing to find that the photos and description of the accommodation lived up in reality to what was expected. I have stayed in some places where you wonder who has written the description! No problems here. Clean, warm, a welcome pack, spacious rooms and an owner who took the time to answer any queries we had. Thank you Terry. The four of us celebrating 60th birthdays had a wonderful time in Edinburgh - great accommodation, great attractions and cold but sunny dry weather, was a welcome added bonus. We would definitely stay here again. Travelled 17-20 November.

Really appreciate your review and your great comments. Hope you all manage to come back and stay with us again.

“Terrific apartment in fantastic location!”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2016

I recently stayed for 3 nights with my husband and two children (13 and 11 years old). The flat is light and bright and well equipped with everything that we needed. The owners left a welcome tray and milk in the fridge - a lovely touch - and the parking space in central Edinburgh was a real bonus. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms there was plenty of space for us to move around while in the flat. The flat is ideally located for all the sights, within walking distance of Princes Street, the Royal Mile and the Castle. There is a Co-op and a Tesco Express within a minutes walk for anything we needed and nearby Leith Walk is full of trendy cafes and restaurants. The owners were lovely to deal with, both before our stay and afterwards. Any queries were dealt with promptly and access to the property was very straightforward. We visit Edinburgh regularly to see friends and we would definitely stay here again.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review our flat. We're finding that every time we visit there are more and more cafes, shops and restaurants opening round about which is great for the area. Come back and see us again!

“At home in Edinburgh”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2013

City Apartments was a great location from which to explore Edinburgh. It took just a few minutes to get to Leith Walk with lots of transport options. This included one of the tour bus routes, which was a great way to get to know a lot about Edinburgh in a short time. The driver was happy to drop us off at a bus stop very close to the apartment building too. There was also a convenient spot for parking your car so all transport bases were covered. The manager was very friendly and easy to work with on the details of booking. There was also lots of helpful tips and advice in the apartment to help you make the most of your stay. The apartment was roomy enough for a family of four and the facilities were great. The kids especially liked stayed here because it made them feel very ‘British’. As one stop within a long family holiday, we especially appreciated having great access to the internet, a washing machine and excellent cooking facilities. The beds were very comfortable and it was a nice quiet neighbourhood for sleeping. There are a couple of flights of stairs to navigate with your suitcases so don’t pack too heavy. We found the apartment very affordable and good value for money. I couldn’t find a way to pay that didn’t incur some extra fees (international) so factor in a couple of extra percent if paying from overseas. (But it still worked out to be much better value for money than most Australian city accommodation!) We really enjoyed our time in Edinburgh and happily stay in the City Apartments again if we come back some day.

Many thanks for your detailed review - a lot of useful tips. Edinburgh is such an easy city to get around so glad you found this too. Hopefully you'll come back and see us again in the future.

“Luxurious, clean and comfortable apartment”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2013

We stayed at the apartment for the festival. It was very well decorated with lots of nice touches to make it feel comfortable and a home from home. It was very handy for the local Co-op with a Tesco not far away. Easy access to bus stops with a regular and speedy bus service into the city.

Many thanks for your kind words - much appreciated. It's handy having the local shops on the doorstep - especially if you've no car! Come back and see us again - you never know there may be baby Pandas for your daughter to see next time!

“Excellent Location!”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2013

My wife and our two children (ages 21 and 12) spent a week at the City Centre Apartment. Normally we use timeshares but nothing was available the week we wanted so looked online and found this apartment. The photos showed a nice set up and indeed, it met our needs perfectly! Booking was very easy and the friendly owners were quick to respond to my many questions via email - especially since we were coming from the US. Having the two bedrooms and two bathrooms was great. The apartment was like coming home - everything was there that we needed. It was furnished nicely and was immaculate! There were books to read, DVDs to watch on the flat screen TV, laundry and dish soap, a folder with brochures of local restaurants, museums, tours, and things to do. The one thing I appreciated was the folder with all the operating manuals to the various appliances - which are so different from those in the US - this was extremely helpful. The apartment was an easy 15 minute walk to the Royal Mile and except for the day we drove to Hadrian's Wall, we walked or rode the bus which is just down the street around the corner. Despite the main bedroom facing the street we heard nothing from the outside nor any of the neighbors. It was a very quiet, relaxing retreat. We were hoping to enjoy our time in Edinburgh and not really sure of this first time apartment booking - but any fears we may have had were for naught! We definitely plan to return to Scotland soon and would love to stay at this location again if available. Thank you Terry and Ann for making this a delightful experience for us!

Thank you so much for your nice review and comprehensive comments. Glad you found all of the manuals useful - know exactly what you mean when you go to a different country. We also love the handiness of everything being on the doorstep. Hope to see you back in the near future!

“It was wonderful”

Reviewed 31 May 2013

We booked this apartment from Australia for 2 of us and couple of our friends from Germany, all people 55+. On our arrival we’ve got very friendly hello and welcoming fruits, Scottish biscuits and fresh milk. Everything in the apartment was perfectly clean, kitchen fully equipped and all bedding very comfortable. The apartment located on walking distance from the city center and all attractions. It was very pleasant to stay in Edinburgh.

Thanks so much for your kind comments. One of the most important things for us when we go anywhere on a self catering basis is the cleanliness so glad you commented on this. Please come back and see us soon.

“Excellent, well-equipped apartment close to city centre”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2013

We stayed at the apartment for a week in March 2013 and were very impressed. The contact with Terry and Ann (the owners) beforehand always received a prompt response. The apartment itself is located quite close to the city centre, but on a quiet road. Off-street parking was also provided, which was a real bonus. The apartment itself was modern and very well-equipped, with two bathrooms. It was perfect for a family with small children as it's all on one floor (hence no risk of the little one falling downstairs). We'd definitely stay again if we're back in Edinburgh.

Thanks a lot for your review. Look forward to your return in the future.

“perfecte uitvalsbasis met alle noodzakelijke comfort”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2013

op wandelafstand van het centrum, rustige omgeving, voedingszaak onmiddellijk in de buurt, veel bussen op de hoek van de straat, schoon en voldoende ruim appartement, goed uitgeruste keuken, attente verhuurders, kortom, niets op aan te merken!

Many thanks for your review which when translated reads - nothing to criticize! walking distance from the center, in a quiet environment, food store immediately nearby, many buses on the street corner, clean and adequately spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen, attentive landlords, in short. Hope to welcome you back to Edinburgh in the future and thanks for your kind words! (once we figured them out!)

“Excellent apartment, perfect location & friendly owners”

Reviewed 8 Jan 2013

We stayed at this apartment over the New Year break and we were very impressed with the standards and its appliances of the apartment. We were welcomed by tea/coffee and fruit which was very nice. The apartment is located 10 minute walk from Princes Street and has local shops and bars near by. If we went back to Edinburgh we would stay here again!

Thanks for taking the time to review our apartment and for your kind comments. Edinburgh is the place to be over Christmas and New Year and from our experience if we're down over New Year it's great to escape to for a rest!

“Comfortable and relaxing in an excellent location.”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2012

Flat was warm and comfortable with everything you could need provided. Great location with parking if required. Easy access to the city either on foot or by bus. Two convenient supermarkets on the doorstep which was a bonus for daily needs.

Thanks for your review. Glad you had a good time and enjoyed your stay. It is handy having everything on the doorstep and saves so much time! Look forward to your return sometime in the future.
