Great location in a great city
After discovering the difference between Leith Walk and Leith Street, we settled happily into the apartment. We could not have been in a better location to walk the heart of the city and have Waverley shopping and train station so close.
Great location and comfortable flat
We were very happy with the flat. Just one block from Princess Street and the Waverly train station. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get to Edinburgh castle. The bed was comfortable, the apartment was clean, and it had all the basic necessaries in the kitchen. We would highly recommend.
Beautiful flat close to downtown Edinburgh
What a fun flat to spend time in! Whimsical decorations and comfortable furnishing provide a relaxing place to stay after spending the day exploring Edinburgh. The flat was exactly as shown and described in the profile.
We had an issue with the tap water heat not getting hot and Marie Claire did everything she could to get it fixed, finally calling a plumber to take care of it.
The only issue we had was that the bed is rather hard so we had trouble getting comfortable. Other than that, we highly recommend this flat for couples or singles.
Lack of attention to details
Nice apartment in a great location but a lack of attention to details. Four remote controls with no directions. After we couldn't turn on the TV, called for help and she was prompt...found a fifth remote under a cushion and showed us how to use the TV. One remote was for an electric fireplace which didn't work because the battery was bad. Promised to get a replacement but never did.
Potential to be 5-star, but requires more attention to details.
Very Good but a few small touches could make it great
Firstly the good things. Fantastic location and generally clean and tidy with acceptable furnishings and equipment. However a few minor things could make it so much better. For instance tea towels and larger glasses in the kitchen (no beer glasses!) are needed and most importantly we don't want to see cupboards full of previous guests left over food especially when packets have been opened and some are past their use by date ( weetabix and peanut butter in particular). The fan on the oven appears not to work and needs checking. In the washing machine cupboard there were also somebody else's clothes ! Unusual not to have been provided with some milk in the fridge on arrival. We go away every Christmas and this is the first flat we have ever stayed in that did not have any Christmas decorations! Last year we stayed in the same block in another flat which was superb. Water pressure in the flat is good but the shower is little more than a mild trickle and not great. All relatively minor issues, apart from the shower and oven, but when you add them all up it becomes a little disappointing. Edinburgh at Christmas as always absolutely superb !
Great place in a great location 😊
The only reason I haven’t given 5 starts on our first night there was a distinctive smell of cannabis in the bathroom and hallway, we assumed this must have been the neighbors. Also on our last morning there was lots of banging going on either above or next to us from 6.30am.
This apartment is located in the most central possible location, right beside Waverley train station. As such, everything is on your doorstep - all of Edinburgh's city attractions are within walking distance
