Reviews for this host's other properties
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.
Very nice appartment. A bit far from the centre.
We had a wonderfull holiday in Edinburgh.
The appartment met our needs (mother and two teenagers). Although I found that it does not exactly sleep 4 persons, as the sofa bed in the livingroom was rather uncomfortable for my 46 year old back (slept on the cushions on the floor instead)
Location is superb for exploring Edinburgh on foot.
Annette was very helpful on arrival regarding transport from airport to appartment, and practical information about the area.
Annette is very attentive and pleasant. The apartment very well located for sightseeing and shopping and the nearby bus deserves a good renovation: sofa HS, mixer shower difficult to regulate, nonexistent cupboards, windows closed and evil means the busy street. The linen provided is impeccable.
Annette est très attentionnée et agréable. L'appartement très bien situé pour visiter la ville et avec des commerces et le bus à proximité mériterait une bonne rénovation : canapé HS, mitigeur de la douche difficile à régler, placards inexistants, les fenêtres ferment mal et on entend la rue très fréquentée. Le linge mis à disposition est impeccable.
Really nice flat, kitchen was a little bit tatty but still okay.
We like it and we recommend it.
Bus stop in front of the house.
A friendly welcome and lots of tips for our stay.
Thank you Annette
The apartment is right near the center with many shops nearby. Rn must take account business hours. About the apartment ... you need some maintenance. The wifi never work and the white curtains do not let you sleep well because he spends a lot of light. In late summer dusk and dawn so soon rest it is difficult. If you just want somewhere to sleep okay to visit Edinburgh.
El apartamento esta bien, cerca del centro y con muchas tiendas cerca. Hay que tener rn cuenta el horario comercial. Sobre el apartamento... necesita algo de mantenimiento. El wifi no funciona nunca y las cortinas blancas no dejan dormir bien porque pasa mucha luz. En verano anochece tarde y amanece muy pronto por lo que descansar es dificil. Si solo buscas un lugar para dormir está bien para visitar Edimburgo.
The location pretty good near the bus into town.
Anything else I would rather not comment on.
Will be nice place after the renovations
