The apartments are very centrally located in the Old Town, just off the Royal Mile. They are tucked away in a luxurious modern development, with central heating. It's a quiet street, with almost no passing traffic; there is a tight tunnel at the Royal Mile end, which most drivers avoid.

We are quite new to Flipkey - you'll find lots more reviews on TripAdvisor.
The price in the banner is a FROM price, with the lowest rates ( and best value deals) being for stays of a week or longer.
The price is also based on an occupancy of 3 or 4 guests; - There is a 10% discount for parties of one or two guests.
Additional guests are £20 each per night; we can provide either/ or a bed settee or a folding bed.
Also,if you are a group who prefer separate bed-spaces, we can either - provide a folding bed, make up the bed-settee or split the largest bed into 2 narrow singles
We prefer a 3 night minimum stay. Shorter stays can be agreed, particulary at the last minute, but the per night price may be higher. In general the 3 nights stay price is around 2/3 of a weekly price. Why? Because, if we sell all the Saturday nights, for instance, it's very difficult to sell the rest of the week.
If the whole of your stay is mid-week, though, we can do a discounted price. AND we always take off 10% every stay for groups of either one or two guests.
We try to keep the avalialbility schedule up to date, but please contact us first to confirm availability and a firm price quotation.

We stayed in this apt as a party of 5 girls for a couple of nights in November 09. The location was great - close to the train station and pretty much everywhere of interest (Edinburgh doesn't seem that big once you've done a few laps). Gorgeous apartment with really great showers (once you remember to turn the hot water on); only one towel provided per person which isn't unreasonable but girls you might want to bring another for your hair! The second bedroom was a bit small to squash 3 beds in so we used the sofa bed after the first night so we had a bit more space. We were very impressed with the friendly and personal service - we were met on arrival at the apartment and a bottle of cava was waiting for us in the fridge! We didn't use the kitchen (apart from the kettle) as we ate out but it looked like it contained everything you could need. Thank you Liz and Sean and hope to be back one day soon!

It was a joy to be met and feel welcomed by the owner in person, she was extremly helpful and had added the little touches that make all the difference, with a lovely bottle of wine and a box of shortbread, what a nice jester and made our first evening special. The flat was just as described, and it was of a very good standard, everything you need to be as self managing as you would like toi be, the flat was in a great location within easy walking distance from the hub of the city. The parking facility was really good and we found we didn't need to use the car once we had arrived and we were happy to know that it was in a secure locked garage. There are lots of shope and restaurants within easy walking distance, and even a take a way just at the end of the street. It was definately a home from home, clean well thought out with self catering in mind, the decoration was tastefull and modern. No complaints at all. I particulary liked the location of the flat it was in an excellant position for exploring Edinburgh but also in a quiet street, where we were able to get away from the hustle and bustle. Will definately be visiting again.
