Helped me change our booking dates (due to unforeseen circumstances for us).

Product Feefo rating: single plus

Extraordinarily good accommodation. The only (predictable to us) drawback was the 10 am to 10.00 pm loud noise - just outside our windows - of the miked up street performers. We were prepared for this(and were anyway out most of the time), but feel there should be a formal warning on the website for August visitors.

The only other downside was that we were not met on our arrival. We phoned/texted Lucaz on three occasions to confirm our ETA, but heard nothing back. After waiting 10 minutes outside the apartments we phoned the office, and somone appeared in another 5 minutes. It turned out we's been given an old phone number for Lucaz. A very unsatisfactory beginning.

Our response

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for this lovely positive review.
We are extremely glad that you keep using our service and we are glad we could be of help with arranging new dates.
We agree with you about that, during the Festival, the Royal Mile can be noisy and we will do our best to inform the guests.
We are sorry to hear about the initial confusion with one of our partners, we will let him know and make sure the issue is rectified.
We hope to welcoming you back soon to one of our The Edinburgh Address homes.

All the Best
The Edinburgh Address
