Reviews for this host's other properties
Least apartment very very noisy and not very well entretenu.le sofa bed uncomfortable Plus: near the city center on foot or by bus. lively (hence the noise!). Proper equipment.
Le moins: appartement très très bruyant et pas très bien entretenu.le canapé lit peu confortable
Le plus: à proximité du centre ville à pied ou en bus. quartier animé (d'où le bruit!).
We enjoyed very much in Annette's apartment. Since the host was close to the apartment check-in was going well although I forgot to inform my arrival time in advance. The host was very kind and helpful. she gave us some useful information. There's not so much things to ask cause it's very well organized though. Kitchen was wonderful we enjoyed our cooking and it feels like I'm just staying at my friend's place. Comfortable and cozy. Then location is not really central but still easy to reach to the city center. We walked everyday to the city center. I'd like to recommend this apartment to everyone.
Lovely and Comfy Apartment.
Easy for visiting New And Old Town.
The apartment is extremely well located and well served by bus to go fast in the old ville.Beaucoup of shops proximité.MAIS I am disappointed .... I found that the apartment was not very well maintained, Indeed, as our pets are accepted should not fear hair and a sofa more or less clean. In the kitchen the kitchen utensils (stoves) have already lived well. There are many broken things not changed as a gas burner, a tap in the bathroom, the closet doors of the children's room not close and remain open on the room the picture is very well taken but when we open cupboards, one realizes that one sleeps next to the gas water heater, more can not put things because it is a real oven and everything is dirty. Pity this apartment has real potential and is well located ... Pictures taken are really good ... but ...
L'appartement est extrêmement bien placé et bien desservit en bus pour aller rapidement dans la vieille ville.Beaucoup de commerces de proximité.MAIS je suis déçue....j'ai trouvé que l'appartement n'était pas trés bien entretenu, en effet comme nos amis les animaux sont acceptés il ne faut pas craindre les poils et un sofa plus ou moins propre. Dans la cuisine les ustensiles de cuisines (poêles) ont déjà bien bien vécu. Il y a beaucoup de choses cassés non changées comme un bruleur de gaz, un robinet dans la salle de bain, les portes du placard de la chambre des enfants ne ferment plus et restent ouvertes, quant à la chambre des parents la photo est trés bien prise mais quand on ouvre les placards, on s'aperçoit que l'on dort à côté du chauffe eau au gaz, de plus on ne peut pas ranger ses affaires car c'est un vrai four tout et c'est sale .Dommage cet appartement a un vrai potentiel et est bien situé...Les photos sont vraiment bien prises...mais...
The accommodation was wonderful, we had a great time and Annette, the landlord, was very helpful to make us feel at home. The accommodation is on walking distance to the center of Edinburgh, quiet, and conveniently located with shops in close vicinity. Also the Wifi was convenient. Though possible, we found it more difficult than expected to find a spot in close vicinity to park our car; Nevertheless, we really liked the place and would certainly go back to the same place on a next occasion.
We had a fabulous time in Edinburgh. The apartment was clean and fully furnished with a personal touch. The spacious kitchen is particularly remarkable. Annette has been a polite and pleasant host. We highly recommend this apartment to other guests.
Annette and self catering Edinburgh was excellent. A very handy position, very welcoming and helpful advice. Great basics there. Loved the little history books and the flowers. Shower could have more pressure. Very homely.
We arrived at the apartment before the scheduled check in and we were very well recives by Anete. The apartment has good location and is very well organized.
Annette was a very nice and helpful host with lots of tips to the city. The apartment was very nicely decorated, clean and well equipped (tea, coffee, detergents etc. .. everything was already there). Even a bunch of flowers on the table :). The location of Wohung was pleasant, with the bus outside the front door you can reach the center in less than 10 minutes on foot, it takes only about 20 minutes. Overall, highly recommended, we would book there again!
Annette war eine sehr nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin mit vielen Tips zur Stadt. Das Appartment war sehr hübsch eingerichtet, sauber und gut ausgestattet (Tee, Kaffee, Waschmittel etc... war alles schon vorhanden). Sogar ein Blumenstrauß stand auf dem Tisch :). Die Lage der Wohung war auch angenehm, mit dem Bus vor der Haustür erreicht man das Zentrum in weniger als 10 Minuten, zu Fuß dauert es auch nur ca 20 Minuten.
Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert, wir würden dort jederzeit wieder buchen!
We staid three days in Edimburgh, and we have a real nice stay in this apartement. Annette, welcomed us even if it was a bit late at night (around 11:00 pm). The flat had every thing we needs and was really confortable. Dishwasher, Washing-machine, food shop just across the road, 15 min walks to the city. A really niec and cozy flat
