“Lovely apartment in the heart of Edinburgh”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2014

My friend and I had an excellent stay in Kings Stables. The view of the castle from the apartment is in it self worth staying here not to mention the great location right on Grassmarket. With a wide range of bars and restaurants in the area. Even though it is located in the heart of the city almost no noice disturbed my sleep during the night. A great place to stay in a vibrant city such as Edinburgh.

“An excellent place to stay in the centre of Edinburgh”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2014

The apartment is superbly sited for all that's happening in the centre of Edinburgh but at the same time very quiet because of its situation. The place is clean, tidy and well-equipped and the people at Vacation Rentals are genuinely interested in making sure that all is well... a nice touch. Thoroughly recommended...

“Ideale Lage, ruhig und zentral”

Reviewed 27 Jul 2014

Wir haben zu dritt drei Tage in King's Stables verbracht. Das Apartment ist die ideale Ausgangsbasis, um Edinburgh zu erkunden: Es liegt ganz zentral, hat einen Supermarkt direkt um die Ecke und ist trotzdem vollkommen ruhig. Dann ist da natürlich doch dieser unglaubliche Blick direkt auf Edinburgh Castle - wirklich sehr schön! Die Ausstattung ist völlig ok, das Sofabett hat natürlich nicht ganz den Komfort eines richtigen Betts, aber für ein paar Tage ist das kein Problem Wir haben außer einer ordentlichen Pfanne nichts vermisst und werden bestimmt wiederkommen (drei Tage waren definitiv zu kurz).

“Fantastic View”

Reviewed 17 Jul 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at Kings stables, the location could not be better. Shops/restaurants were close by including transport links. The accommodation was clean, comfortable with everything you require. I also found the location to be quiet and secure. Vacation Rental Scotland was very helpful, where it was very easy to book the accommodation. I would strongly recommend Kings Stable as its a pleasant place to stay. Thank you loved the stay Would visit here again

“Wonderful view of Edinburgh Castle, direct city centre but very quiet!”

“the castele from the window”

Excellent location, close to the castle and in the heart of Grassmarket. A clean home, with every confort. Friendly and helpful staff.


Reviewed 15 Dec 2013

We found the apartment well equiped, homely and warm. The views the castle from the windows was marvellous. The location was within easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and places of interest in Edinburgh city. The added touches of wine and shortbread was much appreciated on our arrival.

La ubicacion de la casa es perfecta. El contacto para la gestion del alquiler esta disponible para cualquier duda al momento y me ha dado todas las facilidades. La limpieza es muy buena

“Grassmarket Perfection”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2013

We stayed in this lovely apartment in Edinburgh for three days. It was perfect for our family of three. A quiet, secure location within walking distance of the old part of the city and minutes from the Grassmarket area. Amazing views of the castle from the window, and presented exactly as in the photos. The apartment was clean, comfortable and had all the conveniences we needed. The service from the company was smooth and professional from the start. They even provided the additional blankets we requested, and the bed (queen size) was very comfortable. Our 11yo slept on the comfy sofa bed in the lounge. Due to the number of steps at the entrance and in the apartment this may not be suitable for people with mobility problems.. Added bonuses were wifi, the handy supermarket in the next block, and the lovely tiny Le Cafe Bleu across the road. I highly recommend this property and Vacation Rentals Scotland.
