    This apartment was the perfect place for me to stay during a five day trip to Edinburgh. It was very clean and well-equipped, with a comfortable bed and great layout.

    It’s a pleasant stroll to the very touristy areas, but far enough removed to make it feel like a more real Edinburgh experience. There are grocery, restaurant, coffee, and delicatessen stores very nearby and it was so easy to walk up the street a bit to catch the trolley to the airport for just £5.50.

    We loved it here, a great location but also a very comfortable, friendly space and well equipped apartment. We would return without hesitiation. We walked there from Waverley Station when we arrived in Edinburgh and it was all very straightforward and not too far.

    Very good, clean and tidy apartment with loads of space. Location brilliant for exploring Edinburgh and Leith.
    Worth noting that parking near the flat ranges from £8.80 for 4 hours towards the centre to £4.00 for all day in the street down the hill.

    We loved the location and apartment. There was everything we needed for cooking, washing clothes and relaxing. It was like staying at a friend’s home. Bedroom was quiet and well appointed. Very close to the train station and the Royal Mile. Lots of great places to eat very near as well as a well appointed grocery store around the corner. We will definitely return sometime soon. Fantastic stay!

    The place was in a really great location next to a little park and nearby to anywhere we wanted to go. It was clean and well organized and has a nice, quit bedroom. With only 2 small flights of stairs it was manageable to get our suitcases up and into the apartment.

    Staying at 3 Gayfield Place is rather like borrowing the home of a good friend. The apartment combines a sense of elegance and space, with easy to live in comfort. I found everything I needed had been provided for my stay. Its central location is convenient for getting around the city. I would gladly recommend this apartment to my own friends.

    we loved the quaint apartment – clean, efficient, and a well equipped kitchen. The location was great too – a lovely grocery across the street and nice restaurants. It was a perfect walk to where ever we wanted to go.

    We spent a very good time at Gayfield Place. The apartment was very clean, lovely decorated and quite… and not far from the center.

    I fully recommend it.
