Overall Feefo rating: single plus

This is a lovely apartment. Very spacious and most attractively decorated. When I arrived the key was not in the key box as arranged. I called the owner who then told me it had been left elsewhere and they had fogotten to tell me! She was very apologetic. The big problem I had was that there was absolutely no loo paper in the bathroom and I thought this was unacceptable. I have never had this problem, even in my days of staying in 2* accommodation. <br />Aside from that it was lovely. It would be nice if there were some teabags and milk on arrival also, as this apartment is not cheap. <br />Overall if was very pleasant despite the initial glitches. Were it not for these I would have given it 5*

Our response

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I am so sorry that we missed the mark on this occasion and will make sure to get to the bottom of the toilet paper issue. I truly apologise for the inconvenience, this was a huge oversight on our part.

We absolutely loved the stay and would stay again without hesitation. The apartment itself is very big for Scottish standards, and is at an amazing location (30s walk from Johnnie Walker building).

The only negative thing from the whole stay was the lack of items in the apartment (wash gel or soap, 2 rolls of toilet paper for a 2 week stay, etc). Nothing a quick trip to Sainsburys didn't fix :)

Product Feefo rating: single plus

We were a bit disappointed with the communications with Karen, mainly because we had to chase her for checkin details, and also to get basic info like how to dispense of rubbish bags.

Other than that, she was very helpful and accommodating

Our response

Service rating : I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! And would love to accomodate any further stays in Edinburgh. Regarding the lack of amenities, I do apologise that this was not provided for your stay. We will look into this and ensure that more basic supplies are left in the future.
Product : We do pride ourselves for our communication, so I am disappointed in hearing that this was not up to scratch for your stay. We will ensure that this is brought up with the team. Warm regards,
Poppy and The Edinburgh address team.

A problem with the keys not working was quickly resolved the flat was lovely and warm and very clean it was very close to princes street and public transport
I would have liked a welcome pack of maybe some milk bread etc ther was also no dish soap or shower gel
The lovely light in the living room needed bulbs and a shade fixed also the fridge squeaked loudly when opening a little lubricant would sort it
The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need and it was nice to have a dishwasher
The bed was very comfortable but the noise of the traffic outside disturbed my sleep but it’s what you expect in a city centre there is no mirror in the bedroom for drying you hair.
I disliked having to pay a fee in case of damage as there was already damage to the lights and the rug in the living room was stained
Overall we enjoyed our stay although it sounds a bit nitpicking these things I have mentioned could be easily rectified and would make the stay even better

Booking experience OK. Would have liked more information about the flat.

Product Feefo rating: single plus

Very good location. Poor communication from agent, and no one to welcome on arrival. No response to my email about equipment problems. Floor-length windows a problem, especially in a heat wave.

Guestbook reviews

This one-bedroom apartment was ideal for the two of us and its location was perfect: there is a grocery store steps away, great access to bus-lines, walkable to almost every where we wanted to go. Highly recommend.

It was a nice surprise that the apartment is actually larger than the pictures portrayed. It’s very spacious. The bed and pillows were very comfortable! It was great to have a grocery store right next door. The property manager, Karen, was quick to respond and very pleasant.

The apartment is exactly as advertised, spacious, bright, very comfortable and in an excellent location. It's relatively close, about a 10 minute walk, to Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. There is a grocery store very close by and many dining and pub options close by. City transit and the tram to the airport have stops right outside the front door. Communication with the property manager was prompt and friendly. I would definitely stay here again on a future trip to Edinburgh.

Nice property in a good location. Bright and very spacious. Had everything we could need. Was comfortable, and the host was great and made check in easy. Would stay again when in Edinburgh. Only note is on a busy street with the tram system, however the noise was not bad from our perspective.

Well-apointed and equipmed flat that was perfect for 2-week stay in Edinburgh. Location is short walk from Haymarket Station and central to every neighborhood that can be explored in Edinburgh (West End, Stockbridge, Dean Village, New Town, Old Town, Royal Mile, Tynecastle Park, Leith, etc.). Mere metres from grocery, coffe, pharmacy and pub too and 1 minute walk to nearest restaurants. Professionally managed property (they manage others too), outstanding communication and exceptional service. No hesitation in recommending this property and would defintely return.

A great location! Supermarket right next door to pick up our breakfast food and snacks. We did not rent a vehicle as we could walk to many of the popular areas of Edinburgh. The trams and buses were easily accessible for places not within walking distance. The bed was very comfortable too. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The only thing I would suggest is to bring toilet paper. I wasn’t aware I needed to supply my own and for what was charged I would have expected it to be supplied. Overall a nice stay.

Property location was amazing - in the heart of new city near the Train station and a very short walk to Old City. Flat was roomy and was in great shape and exactly how it was advertised.

Stunning apartment, clean and well equipped. Very comfortable. No noise from neighbours. The ladies at The Edinburgh Address are great - professional, friendly and organised. There is a bit of admin to do prior to visit but it doesn't take long.
