“Extraordinary experience”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I would say extraordinary to this stay. The rose apartment is located in a great place and super comfortable. Gareth is a considerate host. You can find nearly everything you need in the apartment. I think everyone would love it.

“Perfect Edinburgh Weekend”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I booked this flat as a surprise as part of my wife's 50th birthday celebrations, We loved it! The flat was centrally located for shopping, bars and the theatre we walked everywhere.
Gareth the owner was very helpful in providing information before we arrived and even held on to our bags as long as he could after we left to have more time in Edinburgh.
The flat was spotless and furnished very well with everything you could possibly require it also has lots of character and generally just a lovely place to be. We will return.

“Charming, quiet apartment in ideal location to explore Edinburgh”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Rose Apartment was the perfect home base for my husband and I to explore Edinburgh. We stayed a week, and enjoyed roaming New Town and Old Town on foot as well as Leith via bus. Rose Street is mainly pedestrian traffic with the occasional delivery truck, but taxis and buses abound only a block away in either direction on Princes Street and George Street (not to mention Waverley Train Station and the tram, which are also only a block or two away). The apartment location is ideal in that it's very quiet at night (no traffic) but has great access to the rest of the city. My parents also joined us for the latter part of the week, and although they are novice travelers, they had no difficulty navigating from airport to tram to Rose Apartment. They also raved about the quiet sleeping quarters while still feeling "in the middle of it all" when you step outside. At the risk of sounding repetitive, the property location is truly ideal for first time or experienced travelers.

The apartment itself was very clean and tidy and had all amenities promised. We did most of our dining in restaurants around the city, but the well-equipped galley kitchen was well-suited for our morning coffee/tea and light snacks. A lovely selection of basic foodstuffs was provided, too. The bathroom was fully modernized and extremely clean - arguably better than most high-end hotels! We used the clothes washer more frequently than anticipated (thanks to lost luggage, ugh) and were so happy that was available to us. The wifi connection was consistent and strong.

Gareth provided great directions to/from the property, made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed, and was flexible with arrival/departure times. All in all, we would return to Rose Apartment for future visits and highly recommend it to other travelers.

“Perfect”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I booked this apartment as a getaway with my sister for her birthday surprise. OMG it definitely lived up to the pervious reviews. It is in a perfect location on Rose Street and even though its on a busy street the noise is very minimal in the living room but even less In the bedrooms. The flat itself is beautifully arranged and Gareth the owner was there to greet us and hand us the keys. He even left us with a welcome pack so we could have a culpa before going shopping. Fantastic apartment and will defo be back..

“Brilliant Stay”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Myself and 3 others stayed for the weekend in September and we had a brilliant stay. The apartment was perfect for four people and the location was so central! I think the apartment was one of the cleanest I have ever stayed in and the added bonus of essential items in the fridge and cupboard were really appreciated. I was also really surprised how quiet it was at night being in such a central location.
Gareth was so helpful throughout the booking process and he even accommodated a late check out so we could leave our luggage in the apartment.
Overall, an excellent stay and would recommend to others!
