“This was a wonderfully located apartment with great views overlooking Grassmarket. It was well equipped and cosy. I couldn't recommend this apartment enough for anyone wanting to spend a long weekend in the Scottish capital. I'm certainly coming back. Although we didn't meet our hosts, Jayne and Tony were close to hand if there were any issues and quick to respond.”

Review #14661074 “Castle Steps apartment, , very central, views of the city(1 bedroom large)” Great apartment, terrific location ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The apartment was light, clean, and spacious for 2. The kitchen was well equipped, and there is a view of Greenmarket from the living room window. In spite of being steps away from the Royal Mile and around the roundabout from the Castle, it was surprisingly quiet. Reviewer location Venice, California Date of arrival 04 May 2016

Review #14681987 “Castle Steps apartment, , very central, views of the city(1 bedroom large) ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The property is located in the center of Edinburgh next to Edinburgh castle and provides a fantastic view over the old town. Everything was as described in the listing. We always got responses to any questions within 24 hrs from the owner. The appartment is very well maintained and offers a lot of space. The kitchen is fully equipped. There's nothing I would need to change if that was my own appartment. Since the appartment is in the very center of the old town and also not far from the central train station, everything you need for entertainment, sightseeing or shopping is within a 10 minute walk. To sum up, we would recommend this appartment to our friends and would certainly book it again on our next trip to Edinburgh.

Review #14811802 “Castle Steps apartment, , very central, views of the city(1 bedroom large)” Walking distance to everything. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The apartment is very nice and clean with a large bedroom & closet. Great views from the windows. We didn't cook but it had a great kitchen. The bathroom is small but nicely appointed. Sink is tiny so not much room to put toiletries. The washing machine and drying rack were very efficient. Overall, I felt that the apartment was exactly as the pictures show it. Jayne was quick to respond to my emails which was much appreciated. The lock boxes with codes to retrieve the keys is so much easier than the usual method of having to meet someone at a specific time. The only negatives are the stairs, which are really only a problem with getting luggage in and out. The location is fabulous - we walked to everything. We liked the old town feel of the building and the restaurants right outside the front door, including a small coffee & sandwich place 3 doors down, which made everything convenient. Date of arrival

“Perfect location, right in the heart of the Old Town, very near to the castle. The flat was well equipped, comfortable and spotless - with great views across to Greyfriars and surroundings. The key collection/return was flawless - what's not to like? ” review from AirBNB

Excellent Anonymous Review Submitted: 15 July 2016 Date of Stay: July 2016 This apartment is in a great location with easy access to all that Old Edinburgh has to offer. The apartment was clean, comfortable and exactly as advertised. We loved the Saturday morning farmer's market that was a short walk to the Castle Terrace area. There were additional outside vendors (food, clothing, etc.) in the Grass Market area as well, that provided wonderful food options for eating in - not to mention the multitude of restaurant choices nearby. The Castle Arms pub that is just steps out the front door has a wonderful staff, Donald was quite an engaging bartender. We would definitely stay again.

The Castle Steps apartment was absolutely perfect! Tony and Jayne provided excellent directions from the airport, the apartment was spotless, spacious, exactly as the photos depict and the perfect place to stay for our first time in Edinburgh. With the Castle, Grassmarket and St. Giles Cathedral all a stones throw away you really are in the heart of the city. The apartment and building were very quiet and extremely comfortable, but light sleepers note - because of the central location overlooking the Grassmarket it can get a little noisy (and entertaining) as the bars close late on weekends. Highly recommend a stay here - you won't be disappointed!”

nonymous Review Submitted: 16 October 2016 Date of Stay: September 2016 This lovely and fully equipped appartment is located directly in the old town, a five minutes walk to the castle or to Royal Mile. In the kitchen we found some tea, coffee, pepper, salt, herbs, vinegar and oil. Milk and water was in the fridge, soap, shower gel and toiletpaper in the bathroom. Even tabs for the dishwasher and washing-up liquid was found in the appartment. So there is no need, to run to the supermarket just after arriving, what we found very comfortable. Make yourself a cup of tea, place yourself in front of the appartment window and enjoy the breathtaking viev over the skyline of Edinburgh - fantastic!

Everything was exactly as in the listing description - the flat we beautiful and the location was perfect. Absolutely loved the window seat, which looked put across the old town.

Lovely apartment in centre of old town Left on Aug 4, 2017 for a stay in Jul 2017 We could not fault anything about the apartment, light, spacious and right in the middle of old town. The stay allowed us to visit and enjoy everything Edinburgh has to offer. Thank you. This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
