“Cosy flat in perfect location”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved our 8 day stay here for the Edinburgh fringe -was so nice to be so central as we normally end up staying quite far out. The flat is really well equipped ,there is literally nothing that the owners have not thought of! The view from the kitchen was amazing -loved waking making up some breakfast with stunning view of castle. This isn't really a criticism as I think it's just us (as no-one else has mentioned it on reviews! ) but we found the bed a bit on the small side &not the most comfortable ever stayed in -but really not a major issue and the numerous positives far outweighed this ! Would def stay there again overall ,really lovely little place .

Wonderful apartment, very clean, everything as described in the advertisement.

“Comfortable, clean and convenient.”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were very happy with the Castle View Grassmarket flat. It is conveniently located, which enabled us to walk everywhere. The flat is very comfortable, has all the necessities and is compact, very clean and very well presented. Also, we appreciated the breakfast provisions which were left for us. All communication with the owner was speedy and professional. We would happily stay here again!
