Great stay at Jon’s on a trip to watch the Rugby. Comfy and warm flat with great beds and everything you need in the kitchen. Very handy for the railway station and parking.
- 10 Feb 2024
When we entered the flat it was very cozy and clean. Spotless floors and bedsheets were very clean and comfortable. The area is in the Heart of the city and very walkable. Jon was very responsive to speak with and kind. He gave us lots of suggestions to do around the city.

Fantastic accommodation and what a great location!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jon’s flat on the Royal Mile. It’s perfectly located, comfortable, and everything we needed for our trip to Edinburgh. Jon was communicative and very pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend choosing the flat to others traveling in the area.

Apartment was in a really good location to many of points of interest in the old Town.. lots of places to eat on your doorstep.

Great space, awsome location. Worked very well for our family of 6.
- 15 Sep 2023
Spacious, well equipped flat in a great location in central Edinburgh. Comfortable beds and handy to have two modern bathrooms with good showers.
Loved sitting in the window seat overlooking the Royal Mile, watching city life. Very convenient for walking to all the main attractions in the Old or New Town and close to Waverley station.
The flat is south facing and thus as long as the sun is high enough in the sky (we stayed at the end of August) the sun shines through the shuttered windows all day. There is some traffic noise as the accommodation is sited above a busy road junction, but it didn't bother us and this is the pay off for being so centrally located.
- 02 Sep 2023
The flat is perfect for the centre of Edinburgh. Lots of space, easy access. Yes it’s a bit noisy at night but you’re on the royal mile what do you expect. Fab week
- 26 Aug 2023
We had a fantastic stay at this property! The location was perfect; right on the Royal Mile! It is walking distance from the train station, the bus tours, Edinburgh Castle, restaurants and shopping. Plus the bonus of people watching from the windows. The host gave excellent instructions for arrival and then checked to make sure we got in alright. The beds were comfy and the apartment was clean and spacious. I highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in Edinburgh!!
- 05 Aug 2023
We are a family of 6 and we stayed here for 3 days. This flat allowed us to easily access activities in the old down part of Edinburgh. This was exactly the type of accommodation we were looking for within easy walking distance from the rail station and close to all the activities we had chosen for our stay.
- 30 Jul 2023
Nice apartment right in the center on the mile. Everything at your fingertips. Spacious rooms and 2 bathrooms, convenient with more people.

Great location and communication by the property owner. Very clean and just as described.
- 07 Jul 2023
I cannot say enough good things about this apartment and the location. Perfect spot to tackle Old Edinburgh or set out for any point you desire. The apartment is well equipped and ready to host you and your party. Jon was immediately attentive and provided a ton of information to help with ideas and settling in. Specific advisce is to have a parking plan if you arrive by a car. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Jon for being a great host!!
- 01 Jul 2023
We had a great stay here! Jon was very responsive and helpful. The space was conveniently located in old town- we walked everywhere!

Used this great apartment as a base of operations for bucket list golf trip and site seeing in Edinburgh. Great location along the Royal Mile.
- 16 Jun 2023
We found this apartment to be clean, roomy, comfortable and in the perfect location for visiting the Royal Mile. It was easy to access assuming you understand that it is up 2 flights of stairs. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment to a friend.
- 10 Jun 2023
Great location, great communication, clean and comfortable! I would definitely book again if in Edinburgh. Thank you for a great stay!
- 07 May 2023
My friends and I stayed five nights - the location is perfect for sightseeing - within five mins walk to the castle, 10 mins to the galleries, and ten mins from the main shopping area, plenty of bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Jon was very helpful - we were arriving early and he arranged an early check in, coms were excellent. The flat is spacious and clutter free - it does have traffic noise but it’s a small trade off for such a great location (and after a while we did not really notice it). Flat has everything you need, bedding and towels were spotless.
- 06 May 2023
Perfect place to see the beautifull city.
- 04 Feb 2023
Amazing place. Centrally located to all attractions in Edinburgh. 3 large size bedrooms.. Beautiful kitchen and sitting room. Beds very comfortable..

- 16 Oct 2022
Great location in Old Town.
- 29 Sep 2022
Located on the Royal Mile, this apartment is ideal for sightseeing in Edinburgh. I had several questions (hair dryer; parking) before our trip and the owner answered me promptly and was very communicative and friendly. During the trip, I had a question about the lights in the stairwell and he answered me almost immediately. There is a washer/dryer combo which took us a hot minute to figure out; same with the shower (hint, flip the switch outside the door), and we got confused about the floor the apartment was located on (we don't count the first floor as zero in America) but we figured it out. I thought we'd utilize the kitchen but we did not partially because the little store right downstairs although convenient was closed for the Queen's funeral. We did make coffee. I'd highly recommend staying here.
- 17 Sep 2022
Stayed at this apartment in September for 3 nights. The location was amazing and the apartment was exactly as shown on the listing. Would definitely stay again.

Great location, great spacious apartment. Don’t hesitate to stay here.
- 13 Aug 2022
Fantastic position on Royal Mile. Very close to everything . Jon extremely easy to deal with.
- 07 Aug 2022
This apartment was a perfect place to enjoy a couple days of our last leg of vacation in Scotland. Centered on the Royal Mile was a huge benefit. It was a clean place. I might suggest a description book to help with the functionality, such as the stove - we could not figure out how to turn it on, and we have used gas stoves several times. Other than that, it was the perfect place to wind down our beautiful vacation to Scotland. Thank you! Vic and Jen, Kansas USA
- 15 Jun 2022
This was a fabulous stay. Everything was conveniently located to the apartment Bedrooms were set up perfect for 6 adults. Very clean, host was easy to contact. We would recommend this location to everyone staying in old town

- 13 Jun 2022
Practical flat with comfy beds in a great location for sightseeing. Plenty of room for three adult couples.
- 10 Jun 2022
This place has amazing location right on the High Street. Most of the things everyone wants to visit is just a couple minutes walk. Of course this has also it's issues (it might be a bit noisy), but that is to be expected when you stay in the city centre. The flat itself was clean and very nice. It was an amazing find for us and we would stay here again. Communication with Jon was clear and fast. I really can't say anything bad :)
- 02 Jun 2022

Brilliant host, prime location, spacious, clean apartment you will not be disappointed. I cannot recommend this property highly enough. Beautiful apartment in prime location for exploring Edinburgh. The apartment is spacious and very clean. Jon was a fabulous host responding to email questions very quickly. Check-in and out worked well. We had a nice meal at the Worlds End pub opposite the apartment, the staff were very friendly and attentive. The property is a short walk from the castle.
You will not regret booking this property.

We had a wonderful visit. We easily got to the apt. from the airport via X100 bus given instructions from Jon. The apartment suited our group just fine.

Perfect flat, in a fantastic location for great value so highly recommend.
- 18 Sep 2021
We had a lovely time at Jon’s place. It’s literally at the heart of the Royal Mile road. So many places nearby and it’s also very near the Edinburgh Waverly station which is a very important factor for me when choosing a place to stay. The place is clean, has good heating and very convenient. Jon is also very good in responding to my queries, communication isn’t a problem with the host.
- 15 Sep 2021
We had a great stay, the location couldn't be better and the communication was also great. thanks for having us!
- 03 Sep 2021

John the owner , didn’t meet him but text me before I got there and anything I need he was extremely helpful. Highly recommend.
- 03 Jun 2021
We booked the three bedroom unit and it was amazing. There were lots of windows to take in the lovely views on the Royal Mile. Restaurants and pubs galore to choose from, and all the shopping you can handle within a few minutes walking distance. Our family of 6 had plenty of room to spread out, and having two bathrooms is a big plus. The kitchen was well appointed, and the washer/dryer unit was a godsend. Our hosts were very helpful and responsive to inquiries in a short time. Everything was very clean and comfortable - overall a very enjoyable stay in a gorgeous city.
- 07 Aug 2020
We booked this airbnb direct with the owner Jon and we loved it! There was 6 of us staying, it was spacious and in a great location in Edinburgh city centre.
- 07 Feb 2020
The flat was lovely and big for 4 friends to stay 3 nights. Two great size bathrooms and the living room was lovely and spacious with plenty of comfortable seating areas. Perfect location to stay for all the travel and tourist areas. I would highly recommended this apartment

- 28 Apr 2019
We absolutely lover our stay! The apartment is perfect for a group of 6.. locations is ideal for exploring the city.
- 08 Nov 2018
We took 2 apartments on the Royal Mile as there were 14 of us staying for the May bank holiday weekend. Apartments were near each other. So we were able to keep the group together. Both apartments were clean & lovely and matched the pictures on the website. We couldn't have gotten a better location to stay, we were very close to pub/ clubs. Walking distance to Princes Street and Queens street. Everyone in the group were delighted with the accommodation and would highly recommend any family/group to stay there. Jon was very helpful and informed us of nearby pubs, clubs and local attractions.
- 07 Sep 2017
The owner of the apartment was very friendly and helpful throughout the booking phase and during our stay. The central location on the Royal Mile was ideal for our group of friends as there were plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. It was also only a 5 minute walk from Waverly Station. The apartment was on the top floor which had good views back up the Royal Mile. All the rooms were of a decent size and even all seven of us in the front room did not feel cramped Free Wi-Fi was also included which was good Would highly recommend for a group of 6-8 friends and will defiantly use again on our next trip to Edinburgh
- 01 Aug 2017
Had a great stay apartment was clean, spacious and smartly furnished. Excellent location for train station and right on the royal mile couldn't fault it. Big thanks to Jon who sorted our arrival and departure he was spot on nothing was a bother. Much appreciated.
- 30 Jul 2017
First time trip to Edinburgh for a short break and could not have chosen a better apartment. It is in a fantastic location on the Royal Mile close to the castle, Princes St, and the train station with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The apartment was clean, spacious with all the facilities you need and right above a corner shop. The owner, Jon, was very helpful and friendly. The stairs to the apartment were a bit of a hike so not suitable for those with mobility issues. Otherwise highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a city break in Edinburgh. Would definitely book again.
- 13 Jul 2017
Comfy & Convenient.
We were late to book as we wanted to time it right to match with daughters birthday (she wanted to see the pandas at the City Zoo), train connections, school time, etc. Emailed various establishments across Edinburgh to see if they could accommodate us (family of 6) for the weekend. Jon was quick to reply and suggest suitable plans for us. Very helpful. Answered our queries very quickly too. Was there to meet us at the apartment and show us were everything was. Nice touch that ! The accommodation itself was clean, user friendly and comfy. Nice layout, kids loved it. Location wise, it was perfect. Short walk up the hill from the station. On the Royal Mile and short walk to many attractions. Good restaurants and bars near by too. Would definitely recommend and we hope to come back. Only suggestion - maybe have some complimentary toiletries available. Apart from that - excellent.
- 06 Jul 2017
This appartment was in a great location. Parking was a little pricey. Overall a great place to stay if you want to see the sights of Edinburgh.
- 20 Jun 2017
Hi Jon, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Cranston apartment in Edinburgh. Plenty of room for all of us to spread out and everything we needed was at our finger tips. We felt quite at home and comfortable--we certainly hated to leave!! Thanks so much for the excellent service, you made everything easy from start to finish. We will definitely be looking to use your services again next time we visit Scotland--hopefully in the near future!!! Thanks again,
- 08 Jun 2017
Location, Location, Location!
Can not say enough about our wonderful vacation. The Rental people were very helpful in our search for a perfect location. When we arrived at the Condo, we were very pleased with our "home" for the next few days. It was very clean, well furnished and the kitchen was very well equipped with all we needed to cook when we weren't going out to eat at the many wonderful restaurants steps from the unit. Convenient to everything Edinbrough has to offer, we loved the Unit so much and can't wait to go back!!! There are about 3 floors of stairs to climb to get to this unit, but if you are up for it; the location is well worth the climb!
- 05 May 2017
fantastic apartment, fantastic location, fantastic price!.
The overall service was first class from the booking stage through to checking out! Great apartment in excellent location. Everything on your doorstep! thank you so much. we will definitely recommend it and would definitely stay again.
- 02 Mar 2017
Sich zu Hause fühlen in einer fremden Stadt, die es zu erobern gilt.
Geschmackvoll und modern eingereichtetes Apparment. Alles hat funktioniert. Die großen Kinder waren happy, weil es ein offenes W-LAN-Netz gibt. Wir haben uns gefühlt, als würden wir mitten in der City wohnen, obwohl nur Gäste waren. Für unseren 5jährigen Sohn war es toll, dass wir so zentral gewohnt haben und mitten am Tag einfach mal "Nach Hause" gehen konnten. Wir konnten eigentlich alles zu Fuß erreichen. Ein kleiner Lebensmitteshop ist im selben Haus im Erdgeschoss. Cafés und Restaurants gibt es ohnehin überall. Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter hat großartig funktioniert. Wir hatten seine Handynummer und hätten ihn jederzeit anrufen können. Danke für die schönen Tage im schönen Edinburgh! Jederzeit wieder!
- 20 May 2016
strongly recommend this apartment.
This was a well appointed appartment, on the second floor, with views up and down the Royal Mile. It looks a little bit austere when you first enter the building, like the servants stairs, which on reflection may well be what it is. The rooms are all a good size so even with four of us and the little one there was loads of space and everything you need is supplied. Jon the owner was really friendly and accommodating, he met us personally and showed us around, I'm sure nothing would have be to much trouble had we needed anything. I would strongly recommend this apartment; my partner and I took her brother, his wife and their two year old daughter to stay there on their trip to the UK from Spain. They loved it as did we.
- 21 Apr 2016
Great setup for large family. Excellent location on Royal Mile. Jon was a great host! Highly recommend.
- 24 Jul 2015
Edinburgh... What a great city and the Cranston st apartment was fantastic. Great location on the Royal mile and very roomy. Three great sized bedrooms and all the things u need for a perfect stay. Will be back again ( soon hopefully ) cheers Jon
- 10 Jul 2015
Our group of 5 adults stayed in this apartment for 3 nights in Sept 2011 and found it to be just perfect. Location along the Royal Mile was so handy for everything you would want to do in Edinburgh. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms made life very comfortable. The apartment was spotlessly clean with all conveniences. We would definately stay there again and we recommend it to everyone. Thank you Jon for your recommendations about places to visit and local eateries and carparking - it was all invaluable information.
- 12 Oct 2014
Fantastic location, lovely flat.
We stayed here for a long weekend at the start of September. The flat is in a fabulous location in the old town, really close to the station. We were a party of 7 and were all pleasantly surprised by the amount of space the flat provided, and although I didn't sleep on the aerobed, my friend that did for 4 nights said it was really comfortable. I would certainly recommend this flat to friends and family, and hope to visit again myself some time soon.
- 16 Jul 2014
Just what we needed.
Great apartment located in the heart of all the action!! We will be back.. already recommended to our friends.
- 25 Jul 2011

Great week in Edinburgh.
We rented the Cranston Street apartment. Very nice apartment - perfect for our family... location is ideal for spending a week in Edinburgh. The apartment itself was Clean, tidy and Jon was a real help when we arrived. Recommended to friends.
- 21 Jun 2011
Lovely apartment, fantastic location
We came to Edinburgh to celebrate a 30th birthday. There were eight of us so we used the aero divan beds in the living room as well as all the bedrooms. The apartment itself was immaculately clean and nicely decorated in a very modern style. The eight of us fit in very comfortably - even with the beds in the living room. The location of the room is absolutely fantastic. It is right on the royal mile with a balcony in the living room looking up the road onto the mile. It meant everything we wanted to see was within close walking distance. The only downside was the noise from the street at night but with a location as ideal as this it was a small price to pay. We will definitely stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh.
