This bright and well furnished property is perfectly located in the city centre, with easy access to all amenities and services. Whilst in the heart of Edinburgh, the hustle and bustle is not so invasive, as the flat is situated in a quiet close.
1 king bed
2 single beds
1 sofa bed
The photo of the combined kitchen/dining room space is what sold us - and it was a nice area to hang out. We knew the flat would be very central in old Edinburgh, and it is literally on the main tourist avenue (Royal Mile/High Street). Which is very convenient for all tourist aspects - sightseeing, restaurants etc. However, although the flat looks into a courtyard, the windows are single-paned and the noise level is more than we expected. Singing night crowds (there is a hostel next door), empty bottles which get tossed into a recycling bin right in the courtyard at any hours during day and night, loud conversations, traffic, parades on the street - we had it all. Thank goodness for ear plugs! You need to be noise-tolerant to stay here or join the crowds at night. The bedrooms were small, the room with the two single beds was filled up with those beds, and the queen-sized bedroom had a bit of space at the bottom part of the bed for a suitcase or bag. Unfortunately, we found the queen-size bed quite uncomfortable, including the bedding. The kitchen is well-equipped, and there is a closet in the hallway to potentially hang up a jacket or two, but no other wardrobe space. Overall, I would rate it as adequate, but wouldn't rush back to it.
Response from Davide:
I'm are very glad to hear you found the kitchen/living area a great place to spend time in, and it's also good to hear that you found the location of the flat very convenient. I'm sorry that you found the noise, bedroom areas, and bedding to be a bit of an issue. The room sizes are typical of a flat in an urban area in the UK. The mattress is a brand, and UK standard double size, not a queen size or king size. The bedding we use are all pure cotton, and it's never been a concern regarding comfort before. Yes, we can appreciate it can get noisy from time to time being in the city centre. Normally, it's well below what you'd expect as it's off the main street. Anyway, thanks for having stayed with us. It was good to have you!
Hemos disfrutado mucho de nuestra estancia en Edimburgo gracias a la excelente ubicación de este apartamento. Es un segundo piso sin ascensor al que se accede por un pequeño callejón (close) en plena Royal Mile. La casa resulta muy luminosa y acogedora, y realmente tiene todo lo necesario para sentirse como en casa. A pesar de que tuvimos un ligero retraso con el vuelo, Davide y su hijo Carlo estuvieron pendientes de nuestra llegada, nos llamaron por teléfono para darnos indicaciones y nos esperaron más de una hora. Repetiría sin duda.
