Welcome to Apartment La Favorita for large groups or families looking for nice accommodation on a budget. It is a large enough apartment to sleep 14 guests at an affordable price and close to the city centre.

A home from home apartment in Edinburgh which in my opinion beats any faceless hotel. The real advantage here is that your group of guests can all be together.

So!!!! whether you are a small group looking for a spacious apartment or you are a large group you will simply just love staying here.

The beautiful italian restaurant Lafavorita is just below the apartment and has proven to be our guests' favourite.

Metered on street parking. Free parking on some of the side streets

Welcome to Edbook Apartments. We are delighted you have chosen to stay with us and may we remind you to book your travel insurance if you have not already done so.

WHAT WE NEED YOU TO DO NOW IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ENSURE EVERYTHING RUNS SMOOTH FOR YOU. SO PLEASE READ EACH SECTION CAREFULLY.

PLEASE PRINT THIS E-MAIL OUT AND BRING IT WITH YOU AS THIS IS YOUR PROOF OF STAY AND MUST BE SHOWN TO THE RESTAURANT STAFF/REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE APARTMENT WHEN YOU ARRIVE.

Please note the Address of your chosen apartment:

SECTION 1. VERY IMPORTANT - PAYMENTS DUE TO BE PAID
You paid the cost of your stay to Airbnb. Than you.
A £200.00 security deposit is being held by airbnb.

A possible £25 fee may be due for arrivals out with restaurant opening times. Likely to be after 11pm. Information regarding this is further down in this email. If separate arrangements have been made for this please pay the £25 cash on arrival.


SECTION 2 - VERY IMPORTANT - ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS


Arrival time - from 3pm - THERE ARE NO ON-SITE STAFF AT THE APARTMENT.

The keys for the apartment will be held in the restaurant next door to the apartment - La Favorita Restaurant. If you want to arrive after 11pm it is likely that the restaurant will be closed so separate arrangements will need to be made for you to be met at the apartment with keys. There is an additional cost of £25 for this facility. Please let me know as soon as possible if this is required. If so and also arrange to pay the additional £25 cash on arrival . If this has not been paid and for any reason you arrive after 11pm, £25 will be deducted from the security deposit. I will also require a note of your contact telephone number for when you are in Edinburgh so this can be passed to the representative who will be meeting you.
Section 3 - IMPORTANT - DEPARTURE INSTRUCTIONS
Departure time is up to 11am - You must ensure you have vacated the apartment by 11am and removed all belongings. When departing please ensure all lights are turned off. No need to call us on departure. Just lock up and put keys back through the letter box. - simple

AFTER departure nothing will be taken from the security deposit providing there are no breakages or damages to the apartment and the apartment is left in a respectful condition as it was when you arrived. You must make sure all rubbish and bottles are removed from the apartment and put in the outside bins. Our house keeping firm charge £12 to uplift each bag of rubbish left in the apartment and £30 if the apartment is left excessively dirty. These costs will be taken from your security deposit. Please don't be caught short. We don't like having to do this

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I arrive earlier than 3pm or depart later than 11am - Late or early arrivals - the only way to guarantee an early arrival or later departure is to book the apartment for the day before/day after your arrival/departure. This is because we could have a situation whereby one guest arrives and the other departs on the same day. As departures are up to 11am and arrivals are from 3pm the house keepers only have a 4 hour window to service the apartment for the incoming guest. If you want me to block the day before arrival or after departure please contact me for availability and price. However, we can be flexible if there are no same day arrivals/departures. Please email me 2 days before your arrival and I can check if this is possible.

Can I leave my luggage in the apartment after 11am and come back for it. Unfortunately, as there are no on-site staff at the apartment you can not leave your luggage in the apartment after 11am as you need to return keys by 11am and there may not be anyone in the apartment when you want to come back and collect it. Also, there may be new guests in the apartment who would not want responsibility for your luggage or to be disturbed when you want to come back for it or even be in the apartment when you want to come back for it. There are left luggage facilities at Waverley Train Station. (URL HIDDEN) There are also left luggage facilities at Edinburgh Bus Station.


All our apartments are strictly non smoking and strictly no pets allowed. You should now have all the information you need to complete your stay so all that remains is for us to wish you a pleasant journey to Edinburgh and hope you have a great time when you are here.
Kind Regards

Evelyn and Elaine

We have just enjoyed a fantastic stay here for a girls weekend. Great location and a really fab space to enjoy being together. Clean, central and pizzas downstairs were fantastic! All in all a perfect apartment for what we needed!

Lovely, spacious flat, perfect for a big group. Couple of things were broken on arrival (nothing major - just a few cupboard doors) and no cleaning materials were provided which made cleaning on departure difficult, but overall it was a great stay. Totally recommend.

Extremely disappointed with recent stay at this apartment as the photographs do not represent the current look of the apartment. The apartment requires some work before it should be listed on air bnb. Broken windows; toilets (particularly the flushes) and overall cleanliness. I contacted Evelyn and Elaine on the day of arrival as I was horrified at the fact the place at not been cleaned (toilets were disgusting) and the floors and carpets were dirty. We were offered another apartment however due to our check in being so late in the day this was a further inconvenience. I would advise taking a look at this property if possible prior to booking and unfortunately I won't be using Airbnb again following this experience!

Response from Evelyn And Elaine:
When Emma arrived she immediately phoned Evelyn to say the apartment had not been cleaned and toilets were dirty. The owners of the apartment are very meticulous in keeping their apartment to a high standard so we were very surprised to hear this and immediately offered an upgrade to a larger more central apartment with free parking. Upon investigation it turned out that Scottish power had to get into the apartment before the guests arrived for an issue with the building and power supply. Unbeknown to the owners, they walked about with dirty boots (after the apartment had been cleaned) and used the toilet without flushing. As soon as the owners were made aware of what happened the first 2 guests to arrive were ushered into the restaurant below the apartment and given free refreshment whilst it was re-cleaned. When we contacted the guests regarding moving to another apartment they told us the owners had cleaned the apartment and they were now happy to stay. This was a one off incident that was dealt with swiftly and we are sorry Emma feels she is disappointed.

The flat was really nice. Comfortable, clean and in a nice area. You couldn't ask for more from a place that sleeps 14. Highly recommended.
