“Great base for visiting Edinburgh”
Reviewed 21 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Four of us stayed 5 nights. This apartment in Blair St turned out to be a great base for our visit to the fringe. It is very close to the Royal Mile and within easy walking distance of Waverley station. It has two nicely decorated and comfortable bedrooms at the back, and despite being in a very busy road, noise wasn't a problem at night. The kitchen and lounge are quite small, but well equipped and are slightly below pavement level, so a little bit darker than the bedrooms. The inner Hall and bathroom have no windows so are a bit gloomy. There is a Sainsbury's and Tesco close by. We would stay there again.

“Fantastic Home Base for the Fringe Festival”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This cozy, 2 bedroom flat was the most amazing location, just steps off the Royal Mile and within easy walking distance to Fringe venues (particularly The Pleasance Courtyard). Of course it was a short walk to everything on the Royal Mile, about halfway between the Castle and the Palace of Holyrood House, and literally across the street from the Blair St. Vaults where Mercat runs its underground and historic walks office from. Lots of great restaurants nearby, and we especially loved The Advocate Pub which became our "local" for our stay and was just steps up the street. (There are a few steps up and down to access the flat so that could be a consideration for some people but was not an issue for us).

“Good location convenient to many of the main sites”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We were a group of 4 adults who stayed in the apartment in July 2016. The apartment was ideally located and within walking distance of many of the main attractions in Edinburgh. The apartment was clean when we arrived and we all had a good stay. The beds were comfy and the heater worked well on the colder days. Wifi was good too. We did have to wash some clothes as we were in the middle of a 4 week holiday to Europe and it would have been nice to have a dryer as we were only there for a couple of days. The bathroom was fine although the water pressure was lower than we are used to in Australia and as a result the toilet takes a while to fill, but that was a small niggle in the whole scheme of things.

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have stayed in Edinburgh for the Fringe quite a bit over the years. I have never found such a fantastic location. There were five adults in our group, which made life cosy, but manageable. As it is a basement flat, the phone signal was dodgy, but that is understandable. The Wifi provided was pretty good. The kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfy and the bathroom was fine. Dave was friendly and helpful, and we got an email before we arrived telling us about local restaurants which I thought was a nice touch. Even though it was right in the centre and next to some late night venues we were not disturbed by noise. All in all, a great place for a short break
