“Great Location, but Noisy on the Weekend”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Overlooking the Grassmarket square, this place could not be more convenient to the heart of old Edinburgh. It is in an old building and amply accommodated our family of four. The kitchen includes all of the mod cons necessary for meal preparation and the bathroom is clearly recently renovated, new and very comfortable. A Sainsbury Local is only a 5-minute walk. We happened to be in Edinburgh during the first two nights of the Fringe Festival. Just be aware that the front bedroom will bear street noises (like groups of revelers) from the square below, especially on a weekend night. By contrast, the back bedroom channeled dance music either from a nearby dance club, or from the Festival, we weren't sure, until after 2:00 a.m. Otherwise, it is a lovely location.

“Flat with a lot of character in a great location”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We loved our stay in Sean's flat- loved the decor and the mod cons- the shower was the best of all the ones we experienced in the UK! Great location- everything we needed was within a 5-10 min walk. Didn't have any problem with noise, but we stayed mid-week so that could have been a factor. Sean was great to work with- very friendly and available to help out with any issues had there been any. Stairs were a good prep for walking around Edinburgh- definitely not a flat city! Would definitely recommend Sean's place to anyone wanting a centrally located flat!

“If I ever make it back, this is where I'm staying!!”

The apartment owner, Sean, was absolutely charming and very helpful, and the apartment was FABULOUS! Yes, there are a couple flights of circular stairs to navigate, but it's worth the effort - the apartment is spacious, full of light, funky and fun, and looks out onto a lovely view of the Grassmarket area AND Edinburgh Castle!

If I ever make it back to Edinburgh again (I hope I will!), I will definitely see if Sean's apartment is available, it was wonderful staying there!

Liked best: Sean, the view out the windows, and the spaciousness. In that order!
Liked least: Probably the stairs, but we wouldn't have the views without them!

“Brilliant, thank you”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were very happy with the apartment facilities, it felt like home! We were visiting Edinburgh for a wedding and found the apartment very good value and much more comfortable than a hotel. I would definitely recommend it to others.

“Great apartment; great location”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The flat exceeded our expectations - it was very characterful and in a really good location. Sean was friendly and accommodating. The view from the window is fantastic. Edinburgh is such an interesting city and we all (2 adults, a teen and a tween) found much to enjoy.
