“Fabulous apartment with brilliant location”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We arrived late 10.30pm - the lovely Eve was waiting to welcome us - and what a welcome! Milk, bread, home made jam,fresh eggs from Eves chickens everything there for us. The apartment is beautiful with all the creature comforts of home. Very comfortable bed and furnished to a high standard throughout with lots of little extra touches. The location is great. One minute and you're straight onto the Royal Mile or go down the Close and you've a short walk to Grassmarket. I can thoroughly recommend a stay in this lovely apartment and hope to return at some point.

“best apt in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have never stayed in such beautifully prepared apartment before. It was like being at home. Not only was it clean and comfortable but there was food in the frig and candy and wine also.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone - with children or not as it has 2 bedrooms. It is right in the most lovely and centrally located area of the city (old center city) and has a gorgeous view of the castle. It is on a very steep Close (alley) but once you get the hang of it it is part of the charm. It has a lift as well - may be unsuitable for wheelchair bound disabled

My husband and I highly recommend Eve's and Eve is the best! She even met us at the door

“Simply amazing!”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

If you're looking for the perfect place to stay in Edinburgh, look no further - Eve's pad at Old Fishmarket Close is absolutely amazing! Smack bang in the centre of Edinburgh, just a stone's throw away from the Royal Mile, within walking distance to the castle, Holyrood House and Arthur's Seat, the location couldn't be any better.
Eve is incredibly friendly and very helpful, and you can tell she cares a lot about her guests. The apartment is modern and clean, yet full of character, tastefully decorated, but not soulless. The beds are very comfortable, the bathroom has all you could possibly want, including toiletries and soft, fluffy towels, and there's even a bar you can help yourself to while you're there.
If I ever return to Edinburgh (and I'm sure I will, as I still have a lot to see there), I'm hoping to stay at Eve's again!

“Stop your search--this is THE SPOT!”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We've stayed all over the world. Eve is the best host we've EVER had. She met us personally. The apartment was stocked with everything we could need after a long day of travel. She even stocked the fridge with fresh eggs (from her chickens), waters, bread for toast, homemade jam, butter, etc...She left us a lovely bottle of wine to start off our holiday. The apartment itself is super well appointed. It's in the perfect spot to walk to everything. We explored the entire city from our cozy vantage point. You are just a short walk from the train station. You can catch a bus or a taxi on a moments notice by simply walking out the door. For being in the heart of the city the apartment was remarkably quiet at night. I literally cannot say enough about this great spot. Rent it now!

“The best of both worlds in Edinburgh's Old Town”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was a perfect location for visiting Edinburgh, close to the Royal Mile and yet tucked away. The apartment was practical and modern and the lift makes access simple for anyone who has problems with stairs. Furnishings and bed linen were of a high quality and everything was spotless.

We found the kitchen stocked with more than enough for a wholesome breakfast and really appreciated the culinary basics, as well as the excellent range of equipment. All the additional touches mentioned by other guests made our stay an exceptionally pleasant one.
