Wow what a location with views to die for ! We watched the fireworks over the castle from the lounge in our armchairs ,bit noisy at night but you are in the heart of the city so what do you expect ,the apartment is massive and very homely it was great for a family of 5

View is unbelievable! Loved everything about this place. Beds were comfortable, kitchen has all your needs making it excellent for cooking in, living room great for all gathering together to talk and people watch from enormous sized bay windows. Having two nice sized bathrooms was a plus. Only drawback is the winding 2-flight staircase to get to thRead moree apartment. With luggage a bit tough but without, a breeze. So many restaurants and shops right outside your door, literally! Hide

The apartment is just great, is spacious and you feel at home! It is in the heart of Edinburgh and has the most amazing view of the castle. If I could I would move in it right away.

It is a great location. No doubt about it. However, the noise from princess street can be heard throughout the flat. We heard the happy people leaving pubs and trucks unloading every nights until the wee hours. Also, there is no lift, so up two flights of spiral stairs was challenging for my senior parents. Overall, this was not an ideal spot for oRead moreur family. Hide
