“Far beyond any expectations!”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The flat is ideal even for a longer stay; it has all the necessary facilities and is in perfect order.
The location is great - within walking distance both to the beach and the city center; however, the bus stop is also nearby. There are plenty of pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and shops in the neighbourhood as well.
Ms Mairi Brown, the owner, is a friendly and charming person who is always ready to help!
I am delighted to have found this property, and I will definitely visit again!

“Light and airy flat”
Reviewed 31 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Booking via Trip Advisor was easy and the website gave us printable booking summaries at each point. The owner replied quickly and efficiently to any queries and we were able to arrange to pick up keys and leave our bags at the apartment before check in time. Tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and flowers were left for us on arrival :)
The lounge is large and has two big windows and catches the day time sunshine and is a pleasure to sit and eat in. All the flat windows open and have blinds, a real plus. Bedrooms a good size. We made use of the folding bed for a family member and the lounge was big enough that we could leave it put up during the day. Toilet and shower a little on the small side.
Two convenient supermarkets by the bus stop, loads of eating places nearby including a great pizza one.
For us the apartment was slightly too far out to walk into the city centre but it is a quick journey into town and very frequent buses. The good value day rider for £4 enabled us to meet up with family members staying elsewhere and go to far flung Fringe venues and the Botanic Gardens.

“Really convenient location and comfortable spot”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the start we could tell that the owners were going to be helpful and friendly. When we arrived we were met by Mairi who was full of good advice for our stay. Everything went like clockwork. The apartment is bright and has everything one needs for a comfortable stay in beautiful Edinburgh. A friend joined us for a few nights and there was ample bedding and a futon for her to sleep on. I cannot fault the Iona Street apartment other than to say that having wifi would have been a plus but there are so many hotspots around this bustling neighborhood and wifi on the busses that we did not find that we missed it very much at all. We had a great time at the Festival and this was due in no small measure to having a really cosy home to return to every night. Thanks guys!

“Lovely flat”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A little out of the centre - at the border of Leith, about 20 mins walk from Princes St. etc.
2nd floor of a typical Edinburgh apartment building. Don't let the location next to a pub and the dingy hallway & stairs put you off: the flat is lovely and light, and stylishly furnished. The shower room and toilet are small, but the bedrooms a decent size and the lounge is great with its big corner windows giving views of Arthur's Seat and Calton Hill in the distance.
We stayed for a week during the Edinburgh Festival in August 15 and had a good time. No doubt the amazing warm sunny weather helped.
