Very nice flat in a really convenient New Town location. The beds and baths were comfy and well outfitted. The washer and dryer were especially handy, and the kitchen “skylight” is super cool! Would definitely recommend!

Professional reviews

Lovely clean and central accommodation in Edinburgh
The flat was beautifully furnished and more spacious than we expected.
No complaints- the only comment would be that it would have been nice to have a little more tea and coffee available. Two tea bags and two coffee sachets wasn't much
