The flat is beautiful and the location is perfect, although there wasn't a lock on the bedroom door which isn't ideal. Really recommend staying here.

A great place to stay -- location was very convenient for my needs -- close to the university and close to the sights. The room was large with a comfortable bed -- amenities were what I needed including bathroom/shower/laundry -- apartment was quiet. Basically, it was the perfect place to stay for the week I was in Edinburgh. My only caution is that the apartment is up three flights of stairs, which was fine by me but may be difficult for someone else.

Large room with a perfect location, close to city centre. I spent three nights as part of my holiday in Scotland. I would highly recommend it. I really appreciate their help. Very responsive and helpful from the first minute.

As soon as I arrived James greeted me and provided me with a guidebook for Edinburgh which was incredibly useful. My room was very spacious and clean and was really well located next to the Meadows. Close to the festival and very festival friendly. The only thing to note is Wifi at the house was very in and out for me, but there are lots of cafes or venues nearby that also have WiFi. Overall I had an awesome trip to Edinburgh. Thank you Monica, James & family for allowing me to stay in your beautiful home!
