A great place from which to explore the old city & environs. The flat is cute & bright, & the bedroom, although small, is small because the bed is so HUGE & comfortable. Just be aware that access is by steps - just like everywhere in Edinburgh - so be prepared to cart your luggage up a fairly steep gradient. Local four-pawed resident Mint is sure to capture your heart. Thank you to the hosts for sharing your space with us, we really appreciated it. Jen & Robert

Best location you could ask for. Right next to grassmarket and still hidden enough to be quiet and private. Hosts we're fantastic, room was comfortable. Mint was the sweetest and very well behaved! When we come back to Edinburgh we hope to stay here again!

We were there during Fringe, and there is no better location than this apartment. It is definitely on the smaller side but honestly, it doesn't matter because hopefully you are not spending anytime inside the apartment except sleeping. Hosts were great. Really incredible location!!

This was the best Airbnb experience I've ever had. The whole apartment was beautifully decorated and clean, the dog Mint is very friendly, quiet and cute. The hosts are really nice and welcoming. I felt like I was home from the moment I walked in. I would/will stay here again next time in in Edinburgh. The flat is on a quiet street 1 minute from good shops and pubs, and a stunning view of the Edinburgh Castle when you walk out the door.
