Great check-in experience90% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.
Sparkling clean9 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

This newly decorated flat is ideally located in the East of Edinburgh - just 10 minutes by bus to the city centre & Edinburgh's main tourist attractions. You’ll love it because of the peace and quiet it offers, despite it's great location.

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids).

James' flat was very charming. My grandmother and I were visiting from Canada and we felt right at home. It was located about a 15-20 minute walk from central! The house was clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to my family and friends and I will want to go back to James' …

The flat was the ideal location for our trip to Edinburgh. Equidistant to Princes Street/Royal Mile and our daughter's flat. We could not fault the decoration, appointments and ambience. It is a little gem.

James place is great. Very cosy and quiet. Good location, close enough to shops and amenities. We loved it and we would like to go back!

Initially, we were a little concerned about the area near to the flat as it seemed rather run down and dirty but once in the flat this was no longer an issue as the flat itself is lovely, just as described. It is quiet, warm, comfortable and clean. It is a shame that the garden h…

James property is in a quiet residential area and next to a bus-top which takes you straight into town in just a few minutes. It is a garden level flat and has big windows meaning it is nice and late despite technically being a basement flat. I’d recommend this property for coup…

Response from James:
Hi Milly, thanks for leaving a review and it is great to see that you enjoyed the location, I hope you had a wonderful time in Edinburgh. We are very sorry for the delay with the cleaner, there was an issue with the scheduled cleaner so we quickly found someone else to prepare the home for you which did unfortunately impact your arrival time. We are sorry about the cutlery as well, we will address this with the cleaner to help ensure that future guests have a lovely stay. The sofa beds are not always made up as we have been told that this can restrict the living room for socialising but thank you for your feedback. Thanks for again for your review and sorry for the delay with the cleaner. All the best.

Great location a good walk to the Royal Mile. Cute apartment and comfortable. Food shops a few blocks away and a nice pub around the corner, easy parking too.
