We went to Edinburgh at the busiest time and this apartment was so beautifully quiet - located on a quiet cobbled street opposite a big green park. Everything you could possibly need in the way of kitchen gear, WIFI, lovely bedding, and great comfy sofas to relax on during theday. The sun pours in in the morning and it's a 20 minute walk or five minute bus trip to the centre of town. Five minutes walk gives you the choice of some top Michelin starred restaurants and there are masses of good cafes and pubs around. Tesco supermarket 1 minute walk away. Morris very helpful and all arrangements with keys and access easy and accurate.
