The apartment was listed as "1st floor" but in reality it was on the top floor with five flights of stairs. It was all quite bare bones - don't expect things like salt, pepper, cooking oil etc.

The property manager Karen was very helpful and responsive and the location is great.

We experienced an issue that required us to move to a different apartment which was very inconvenient and cost us a day of our vacation, but the company did at least refund our money without issue.

Access to the property was easily arranged.. The apartment was spacious, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. Location was great in a quiet street yet ideally situated for walking to Edinburgh's attractions, shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay in this apartment again

The apartment was lovely and as described. It was clean, spacious and the beds were comfortable. I would highly recommend this flat, except to people who struggle with stairs…there are a lot of them (50, to be exact).

Product Feefo rating: double plus

Karen was very helpful and responded quickly to my questions when I was in the flat. I don’t think she could’ve been more accommodating.

Our response

Service rating : Thanks so much for your glowing review Frances, glad to hear the apartment met all your needs. The amount of stairs are unfortunate, in a dream world we would have an elevator.

Booking process was fine and easy to navigate. The only reason for 4 stars is that we initially booked in 2020 but then Covid hit. All of our other bookings refunded our deposits. The Edinburgh Address was the only one to hang on to our deposit for two years.

Up-to-date, luxurious bathrooms. Updated, modern kitchen. Comfortable and charming property.

Our response

Thanks for the good review. We are so glad that you found the property comfortable and charming.
It really is an amazing place to stay while exploring Edinburgh.
Regarding the deposit, i was under the impression that you wanted to come back, sorry if we were not clear. I will make sure going forward guests are made aware.

There has to be more info about the apartments such as which floor and is it a steep climb or easy does it have an elevator etc as sometime people are not capable of climbing very steep stairs such as the one in the idyll apartment in Dublin street, and apartments a floor map is a very important addition as it helps I identify the best fit especially with families with kids

Product Feefo rating: single minus

It’s expected that with very good company good service although the apartment is good and has all the amenities but it’s expected that they give the same attention to the cleanliness of the place especially the toilets and as expected there has to be more amenities provided with the apartment especially to get you going if you are booking it for 7 days or more at least like toilet paper or even garbage bags

Our response

Dear guests, Thank you for leaving us this review and for staying with us. We appreciate your feedback and will pass it to the hosts. Regarding amenities, we will make sure that this information is implemented by the property manager to make sure you will have a more comfortable stay in the future. The floor plan is a feature we have on our website but unfortunately not on some third parties. We understand your frustration and we will contact them and share your feedback. We hope to see you and your family again soon. All the best,

Easy to communicate, service was very efficient. Check-in was easy & pleasant, despite the fact that we arrived quite late due to a cancelled flight.

Product Feefo rating: double plus

The flat was wonderfully spacious, bright, and attractively & comfortably furnished. We really loved the location - close enough to walk to everything, but distant enough from the busiest, most touristy areas to get a real neighborhood feel.

A couple of suggestions to make a great stay even better: as a previous reviewer mentioned, the bedding was bargain aisle polyfill pillows and comforters, which was a surprise considering the high standard throughout the rest of the flat. Also, we were a bit surprised that no toiletries were provided in the bathrooms except for hand soap. In our experience it's very unusual to not be provided with at least starter size shampoo and body wash. But those are small things. Overall, we were extremely pleased and would certainly rent this flat again.

Our response

Dear Catherine,
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to help us improve our service with your feedback. It was a real pleasure to have you as guests and we are pleased to know you will come back again!
I have passed the feedback to the hosts and we are confident that they will appreciate your advise.

Again, thank you so much and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Guestbook reviews

Our family group of 6 truly enjoyed our stay. The home had plenty of space for us. Having two full bathrooms plus an extra toilet meant nobody had to wait for the bathroom! The location in New Town was walkable to Waverly Station as well as plenty of shops and restaurants. The neighborhood was quiet and very safe. Highly recommend!

Our family of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh. The beds, bedding, showers and all furnishings were very comfortable. The steps were challenging at times but also gave us more exercise. We did not use the kitchen much but it seemed to be well equipped for cooking. Nice location to walk to many great destinations.

Loved the space for our six person group; three large bedrooms w/multi-bath, sizable kitchen, dining room and common area. Location was around a 20 minute walk from the Royal Mile. Place has everything you would need for a short/long family vacation around Scotland.

This was exactly what we wanted for a family vacation in Edinburgh. Great location a block from Tesco and a short walk to the Royal Mile, Castle and all the rest. 3+ meter high ceilings, large comfy living room. Three big bedrooms with two beautiful bathrooms. An old property, the living and dining rooms have apparently original, now decorative, fireplaces. Separate washer and dryer are better than the standard multipurpose European laundry unit. Drip and Nespresso coffee makers in the flat.

Possibly the most beautiful flat I’ve stayed in as a VRBO. Be mindful of the four flights of stairs up to the flat, but it was definitely worth it and I had two 70+ seniors with me.

Successful stay in this charming apartment in the New Town district. It is ideally located for visiting Edinburgh on foot. With 6 people, you'll have plenty of room! High ceiling, large surface area, good bedding. Be careful, there is a lot of walking to get there!
