Very Good

“Excellent location”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2017

This charming apartment is only 5/10 minutes walk to Princes Street and has excellent choice of buses too. The apartment was just as described on the website and the breakfast pack provided was much appreciated. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the great review you have given Apartment 39 Lothian House, we appreciate it and are always glad to hear that guests enjoy this lovely central apartment. Thanks again, Jenny

“A wee gem in the heart of Edinburgh”

Reviewed 4 May 2014

I've stayed in this apartment in Lothian House several times now on business, the fact I keep coming back should speak volumes. Always spotlessly clean and perfectly furnished, I was surprised and pleased to find on my latest stay that the flat has recently been refurbished making what was an already lovely apartment even better. Perfectly situated on Lothian Road in the centre of Edinburgh, the flat is well fixed for pretty much everything in town - whether that be restaurants, pubs, theatre and cinema - all in walking distance. Always a warm welcome on arrival and the inclusion of some basic foodstuff (milk, bread, cereals etc) to get you started is a lovely touch. There's a supermarket right round the corner so picking up anything else is easy enough. Perfect for couples (I bring my girlfriend who loves the swimming pool access in the basement of the building), the apartment is a snug wee gem in the heart of Edinburgh. Light sleepers may want to note though that given the central location that there is sometimes some noise to contend with at the weekends (from revelers at pubs and clubs nearby) but a small issue for the ideal location. Highly recommended!

Owner's reply: We are glad to hear you liked what we have done with the recent improvements and our new décor! Thanks very much for taking the time to provide this great review. We look forward to accommodating you again next year.

“Great appartment in Edinburgh on a central location”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2013

I only have positive comments: - Central location in Edinburgh with great view on Edinburgh Castle. - Very clean - Fantastic personal and flexible service - Nice to get a breakfast welcome package

Owner's reply: Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to your very nice review of Apartment 39 Lothian House. We are grateful for your comments as these are about the main issues guests have when travelling - particularly the cleanliness of a property and the service they receive, so thanks for that. It is also good to know you appreciated our welcome package, we like to include a good supply of the basics for guests' first breakfast, and the little treats seem to be enjoyed by guests too.

“wonderful accomodation in the centre of Edinburgh”

Reviewed 3 Sep 2013

The apartment is located in the centre. Most of attractions are in walking distance. The bus to the airport stops round the corner. Every day you can easily have a nice walk in Princes Gardens, famous Grassmarket or climb the hill with the Castle. Great variety of shops and pubs or restaurants. The apartment is clean,cosy and comfortable. A lot of equipment,towels,cutlery and dishes.In the basement they have a swimming pool, sauna and solarium without extra fee. The staff is very helpful. Leaving the place I left my keys, they send me them by post. Our daughter came to visit us and could stay for only 40 pounds during 4 nights! Thanks a lot to the owner!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We are very glad you had a great holiday in Lothian House and had time to explore the benefits of its central location!

“Fantastic, Great Apartment, Clean, Homely, everything you could want, and super welcome Box of groceries”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2013

We had a super time at apartment 39, we found it spotless, and Homely. the furnishings were in great order and everything that we wanted was there. The position of the apartment was ideal for us as everything is in walking distance, from Live Shows, Shopping ,even Murryfield Stadium. Buses were just down the road and they would take you everywhere you wanted to go, The Castle was just a road away and could be viewed from the Apartment,

Owner's reply: Wow, thank you very much for this great review! We are glad everything was to your satisfaction. We strive very hard to ensure we meet guests' expectations and it's nice to know when we are getting things right.

“Excellent Edinburgh flat”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

Fantastic flat with everything you could possibly want. The kitchen was particularly well equipped. Everything was clean and the white towels and duvet were soft and luxurious. The experience was made even better by the breakfast and goody basket left by the efficient and helpful Jenny. Great place to stay for exploring Edinburgh

Owner's reply: We really appreciate your great review and value your comments and advice, thank you.

“Beautiful & comfortable, great location & wonderful swimming pool.”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2013

The apartment is just as comfortable as home. The kitchen has everything, and the bed is so comfortable and warm it is hard to get up in the morning. The apartment is beautifully decorated, and has wonderful views of Edinburgh from every room. The owner stocks the kitchen with nice breakfast food and treats. The building couldn't be in a better location - it is a short walk to Princes St, New Town, the Royal Mile, Grassmarket and the Morningside/Merchiston areas. There are several film houses and theatres,including Usher Hall, within a few blocks. The swimming pool is fantastic - long and warm - perfect for swimming laps. I can't imagine a better place to stay.

Owner's reply: As a regular guest we knew you liked our properties, but it is always good to hear the details, particularly that you enjoy the location and the bed (so important for a good holiday break)! The loyalty of our regular guests is highly valued, so thanks very much for taking time to write this great review for Apartment 39 Lothian House. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

“Very Nice, But!”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2012

The apartment is ideally located for all of Edinburgh, the castle and Princes St are within easy walking distance. It was once the Tax Office. The view from the apartment is magnificent. The flat isvery neat and tidy and is well presented. However, it is not cosy and this is down to the quirky nature of its design, a not uncommon problem with conversions. We both found it cramped and cold. The blue wall paper throughout the apartment may have contributed to this feeling.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking time to review Apartment 39 Lothian House, we value your comments. I wish you had contacted me during your stay though (as we ask all our guests to do, if there is anything arising during their visit), because it is most surprising to hear you found the property cold - the heating system is excellent, and there is a button you could have pressed to have as much warmth as you desired. There is also an electric blanket on the bed. We mention how to work the heating in the information sent in advance, and this is also in the property. The apartment design certainly can be described as 'quirky', as you say, however these Art Deco features and unusual shapes of the rooms help to make this property unique (as detailed on the floor plan on our websites). I hope the matters you raised didn't detract too much from your enjoyment of your visit to Edinburgh though.

“Compact, Cosy and Convenient”

Reviewed 7 Dec 2012

A small flat, quite suitable for a couple. Warm and well-maintained, and help is always on hand if there's a problem. Kitchen is odd shaped, but everything you need is there. It's a corner flat, so there are oddities. The location is just excellent. Five minutes brisk walk takes you down to the west end of Princes St, and you're very handy as well for places like the Grassmarket, Tollcross, the Usher Hall and the Royal Mile. For groceries, you're virtually on top of a Sainsburys. For takeaways you have a great choice within 5 minutes' walk. And you can be at the cinema in about 20 seconds! Public transport is good in Edinburgh. Don't bother bringing a car - you can't get anywhere fast when you're in it, and you can't park when you're not. There was some traffic and late-night-reveller noise outside, but certainly not enough to disturb me. The block is a bit uninspiring when viewed from outside (it's an old office building) but it's secure. Women on their own (my wife informs me) might be a little intimidated by the long corridors and echoing stairwell (there's a lift, BTW). The swimming pool in the basement is fun to use, but again a female would probably hesitate to go down alone.

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your detailed review, we appreciate your remarks and are glad you were able to take advantage of the apartment's proximity to attractions and facilities. Please thank your wife for her feedback too, which was informative.(For safety reasons, with an unsupervised swimming pool the size and depth of the one at Lothian House, we include a general recommendation in our Hiring Agreement that guests should not swim alone.)
