Key features

This is a beautifully refurbished one-bed flat on the 3rd floor, at the Victoria Street end of the Grassmarket. Right in the heart of Edinburgh's historic Old-Town. Princes Street, Waverley train station and the Royal Mile are a 5/10minute walk away.

The flat sleeps 2 comfortably in the double bedroom with a standard size double bed. An additional 2 people can be accommodated in 2 x single camp beds.

The apartment is situated in the central location of the Grassmarket, which offers a host of cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and take-away facilities. Other social amenities within the immediate vicinity include Edinburgh's main library, the Usher Hall, museum, cinema complex and banks. For local convenience stores there is a small newsagent right across the road, otherwise, the best bet is going to Lothian Road for the Sainsbury's and the Tesco Metro (5 mins walk).

Princes Street and the Scottish Parliament are within easy walking distance and regular bus service operates to most parts of the city if you require to stray further afield off the tourist beat. Waverley and Haymarket railway stations are about 1 km from the apartment and this is an ideal location for Edinburgh university and the adjacent Edinburgh College of Art.

Service:

Flat and beds not ready in time. Inadequate bedding provided and uncomfortable camp bed in sitting room - not as stated on website.

Product:

The flat on Cowgarehead is in a good position for the Fringe festival but it is noisy at night. Only suitable really for a couple. I would not book this flat again.

Our response

Many thanks for taking the time to leave feedback. Its great to hear that you were happy with the location of the property, as you have said though it is right in the centre of town, therefore some noise is to be expected. The check in time is 4pm, your group arrived early at 2pm, therefore the property was still in the process of being cleaned when you arrived. 


The fact your group required the camp bed and linen for your stay was not communicated correctly for your arrival and for that I do apologise. We did refund you compensation because of this issue your group faced. This has been taken seriously and will be rectified.

Hi, The room was clean and ready when we have arrived. The location was good. <br />However it was noisy in the weekend nights sometimes we woke up during our sleep. The Wifi was really really slow and we couldn't use it at all. There wasn't anything like a welcome pack with some snacks or water which I think it is important. Coffee, tea, washing liquid and sponges etc. seems like they are left overs from someone else's use.The bed was old and not comfortable. <br />If you are staying 1-2 days it should be fine but more than that I don't recommend it.
