My friends and I stayed a week at the flat on New Year's Eve. We choose this location because it was central, we were not disappointed: 5-10min walk to Princes Street and Waverley station (citylink stop). 15min walk to go on top of Calton Hill and enjoy the view. Shops and pubs nearby.
The flat was really well fournished (dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, towels, soap... all you need for a serenely stay)
We also enjoyed the great street party. The hogmanay fireworks was really good as well. If you like dancing don't hesitate for a Ceilidh experience. The teannaich band were awesome!
Thank you very much for your review, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Union Street and in Edinburgh over New Year.
I hope you had a safe journey home and do think of us again for future trips to Edinburgh

Many thanks to owners of this wonderful property. The location was ideal for the hustle and bustle of the Fringe Festival and yet provided an excellent and quiet retreat. I will absolutely rebook on my next visit (2015).
