A superb, stylish, cozy place within walking distance to everything. The rooftop has an amazing view. Felt like a home away from home while we were there.


Lovely little compact flat, perfect for a short stay. Beautiful interior design touches and the place felt homely. The location is very convent if you are in Edinburgh to be a tourist, right off the royal mile with plenty places to eat and drink within minutes of the doorstep. Would recommend this to others looking for similar short stay.


The apartment is in the most perfect location. It is beautifully decorated with great attention to detail. We loved the views from the roof terrace, the very comfortable bed and the delightful sitting room. It was a fabulous setting from which to explore Edinburgh and beyond.


Fantastic location. Really comfortable apartment. Beautifully decorated. Had everything we needed. Would highly recommend!


This was a fantastic apartment, very comfortable and with absolutely stunning decor. It was so convenient, literally 3 minutes walk away from the train station. Having a TV in the bathroom felt very luxurious! We loved the fabulous views over Edinburgh from the roof top terrace too! We had a great stay, can’t wait to return!
