Reviews of this property
Annette and self catering Edinburgh was excellent. A very handy position, very welcoming and helpful advice. Great basics there. Loved the little history books and the flowers. Shower could have more pressure. Very homely.
We arrived at the apartment before the scheduled check in and we were very well recives by Anete. The apartment has good location and is very well organized.
Annette was a very nice and helpful host with lots of tips to the city. The apartment was very nicely decorated, clean and well equipped (tea, coffee, detergents etc. .. everything was already there). Even a bunch of flowers on the table :). The location of Wohung was pleasant, with the bus outside the front door you can reach the center in less than 10 minutes on foot, it takes only about 20 minutes. Overall, highly recommended, we would book there again!
Annette war eine sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin mit vielen Tips zur Stadt. Das Appartment war sehr hübsch eingerichtet, sauber und gut ausgestattet (Tee, Kaffee, Waschmittel etc... war alles schon vorhanden). Sogar ein Blumenstrauß stand auf dem Tisch :). Die Lage der Wohung war auch angenehm, mit dem Bus vor der Haustür erreicht man das Zentrum in weniger als 10 Minuten, zu Fuß dauert es auch nur ca 20 Minuten.
Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert, wir würden dort jederzeit wieder buchen!

We had a great time in Anettes apartment, can definitively recommend it!
Annette was at the apartment to meet us and was helpful too. It is a spacious flat and everything was provided and clean. It is well located and Edinburgh is walkable, we walked everywhere, 15 minutes to Holyrood. Very pleased with the stay. It is on the third floor so you do need to walk up some large set of stairs. Plenty of shops and eateries nearby.
Great place. Close to the city and all amenities (supermarket, pub, restaurant…).
Very nice lady and the flat was clean and tidy. Very good experience. Thanks Annette.
We had a great stay in Annette´s flat. It is conveniently located. If you want to use public transport, there is a bus stop (35 bus) in front of the house, which can leave you at the Royal Mile center or even the airport. The High Street in the Royal Mile is about 20-25 minutes walking distance at a slow pace.
The flat is warm and cosy, very clean and tidy and comfortably furnished. You have everything you need in the kitchen, is fully equiped. There are two bedrooms and a sofa bed at the living room, so it is perfect for 6 people. We were provided with linen, towels and pillows.
Annette was very kind, she explained us everything we had to know about the appartment and where we can find a supermarket, etc. She was willing to resolve any doubt at any moment during our stay in Edinburgh, she deserves a 10.
Maybe to say something to be added at the appartment, it would be a hairdryer.
I would advice anyone to stay at Anntte's place, excellent quality-ratio price.
The landlord was helpful and accomodating allowing us early access upon arrival at 1pm and let us stay a little longer on the day of our departure because our flight was late in the afternoon. That deserves 3 stars.
The 1 star is for the appartment, it was run down with old and stained sofa cussions, dripping taps, old creaking bed and overall messy appearance. The bathroom was appalling with a bath tub that had a broom stick siliconed to the gap between tub and wall to try and prevent water from dripping down to the wooden floor. Who has wooden floor in the bathroom??
So, poor standard in the whole unit.
There's no way you can walk to Princes St/Royal Mile in 5 min so the add is misleading.
Overall, I wouldn't rent it again and it's a shame because with some TLC this appartment could become really nice.
Very good experience at the apartment. It is located in a very interesting for those who prefer accommodations with history, quaint and different old building.
Very well located, you can catch the bus at the airport and takes you directly to the door. On the same stop you can catch bus to the center which is a couple of stops, or the port is also very close. The surrounding area has all services you need, pharmacy, supermarket.
We have been a family of four adults and a baby and was very comfortable.
Annette handles everything very easy, leaving instructions and suggestions to facilitate both stay in the apartment as enjoy the city.
We recommend it!
Muy buena experiencia en el apartamento. Está situado en un edificio antiguo, muy interesante para los que prefieran un alojamiento con historia, es pintoresco y diferente.
Muy bien situado, puedes coger el autobús en el aeropuerto y te deja directamente en la puerta. En esa misma parada se puede tomar bus para el centro, que queda a un par de paradas, o el puerto que también está muy cerca. Los alrededores tienen todos los servicios que necesites, farmacia, supermercado.
Hemos estado una familia de cuatro adultos y un bebé y ha sido muy cómodo.
Annette se encarga de que todo sea muy fácil, deja instrucciones y sugerencias para facilitar tanto la estancia en el apartamento como el disfrutar de la ciudad.
¡ Lo recomendamos!
We were three people in the apartment. The apartment is quite centrally located (about 15 min. Walk to the Royal Mile). There is a car park just around the corner, however, is the very crowded because it is free and in the area hardly is parking available (nodules min. 60 lbs).
The reception by the owner was very friendly and they showed us the premises.
At first glance, everything was ok. but only on the first.
As described here give the photos back only the bright side.
In our bedroom with the "four poster bed" the gas fired boiler was housed behind a closet door. Since they are constantly jumping on and off again one has to sleep already a little trouble with. Furthermore, we could not use the existing wardrobe as it was vollgerumpelt with any utensils. This is something we have never experienced. A not locked in this room closet was also crammed to the brim. The floor in the apartment consists of floorboards have sometimes up to a centimeter wide joints and in many places are loosely. The cleanliness was absolutely to be desired. Floor incredibly. Closet, dust and dirt. The window we have not even opened since they were also very dirty around the edges.
The kitchen was reasonably. But the shelves in the oven had still adhere pizza or bread residues.
We have all captured on photos.
The bathroom was equipped with an old bathtub that stood next to the wall. To seal the edge a broomstick was pressed into a silicone compound. However, seems to have taken root constant moisture there. The taps on the sink must be turned only four or five times so that the water runs. The sink is supported underneath with a wooden stick so it falls probably does not break off or down.
All in all! Actually a nice apartment on the floor plan, but absolutely run down and unkempt.
Wir waren mit drei Personen in der Wohnung. Die Wohnung ist relativ zentral gelegen (ca. 15 min. Fussweg zur Royal Mile). Es gibt einen Parkplatz direkt um die Ecke, allerdings wird der sehr stark frequentiert, da er kostenlos ist und in der Umgebung kaum Parkmöglichkeiten vorhanden sind (Knöllchen min. 60 Pfund).
Der Empfang durch die Eigentümerin war sehr freundlich und sie hat uns die Räumlichkeiten gezeigt.
Auf dem ersten Blick war alles ok. aber eben nur auf dem ersten.
Wie hier schon beschrieben geben die Fotos nur die schönen Seiten wieder.
In unserem Schlafzimmer mit dem "Himmelbett" war die Gasheiztherme hinter einer Schranktür untergebracht. Da sie ständig an springt und sich wieder abschaltet hat man schon leichte Probleme mit dem einschlafen. Des Weiteren konnten wir den vorhandenen Kleiderschrank kaum nutzen, da er mit irgendwelchen Utensilien vollgerumpelt war. So etwas haben wir noch nicht erlebt. Ein in diesem Zimmer nicht verschlossener Abstellraum, war ebenfalls bis oben hin vollgestopft. Der Fußboden in der Wohnung besteht aus Dielen die teilweise bis zu einen Zentimeter breite Fugen haben und an vielen Stellen locker sind. Die Sauberkeit ließ absolut zu wünschen übrig. Fußboden unglaublich. Kleiderschrank, Staub und Schmutz. Die Fenster haben wir erst gar nicht geöffnet, da sie ebenfalls an den Rändern sehr verschmutzt waren.
Die Küche ging einigermaßen. Aber die Roste im Backofen hatten noch Pizza oder Brotreste anhaften.
Wir haben das alles auf Fotos festgehalten.
Das Bad war mit einer alten Badewanne ausgestattet die direkt an der Wand stand. Zur Abdichtung des Randes wurde ein Besenstiel in eine Silikonmasse gepresst. Allerdings scheint sich dort schon ständige Feuchtigkeit eingenistet zu haben. Die Wasserhähne am Waschbecken müssen erst vier bis fünf mal gedreht werden damit das Wasser läuft. Das Waschbecken ist unterhalb mit einem Holzstab abgestützt damit es wahrscheinlich nicht abbricht bzw. runter fällt.
Alles in allem! Eigentlich eine schöne Wohnung von der Raumaufteilung, allerdings absolut runtergekommen und ungepflegt.
