I recently stayed here with a friend for 4 nights and loved Rufus's place. It was really homely and the place was spotless when we arrived. Check in and check out was also very easy. Everything we visited was walkable from the apartment.. Arthur's Seat, the Royal Mile, the Castle, great pubs and restaurants. You won't need a car at all to enjoy all the Edinburgh hot spots. Would definitely recommend to my friends who were looking for a place to stay in Edinburgh. It was great having the Netflix too when we were all whisky'd out and were needing a quiet night in!!

This flat is in a perfect location. It's in a quiet area, and you can walk everywhere. I highly recommend this flat that feels like a home away from home.

The place was spotless and tidy, and communication with Claire for everything went seamlessly. She was flexible with our arrangements and ensured our stay was pleasant. The apartment is well located. Overall good value for money and would stay again.

The apartment is in an excellent location within walking distance to the old town and Arthur's seat. It's on the 3rd floor with no elevator so you'll have to carry your luggage up. Once there though it is well equipped, clean and comfortable. It has a washer/dryer which we were quite thankful for. The only things we wished for was a coffee machine and wifi. Although this property lists wifi... it's really non existent when we were there. It worked for 1-2 minutes and then cut us off. My teenaged kids were not happy and when I messaged to enquire, I received no response.

Very nice place, modern appliances, tv, and so on. Great location, convenient to the attractions of the city with a good view of people walking up the hill to Arthur's Seat. One bedroom, and the couch folds out to a bed. It is the most comfortable fold out couch I've ever been on. Do note, it is a walk up of three flights of stairs; if you're okay with that, I definitely recommend the flat.
