    The rooms are quite nice. The security measures are appreciated. The updated lighting is lovely for focusing & easy on the eyes

    The staff are so kind and helpful. Every friend who came to visit complimented it - I can't think of a better place to live in town.


    Peter Marks | University of Edinburgh

    Dec 9, 2020

    The flat seems to be newly built so the furnishes are new. The room size is comparably larger than the Uni accommodation. So personally, I am quite satisfied with my experiences there. Definitely recommended!

    Very close to the university, lots of bars and shops all around, supermarkets are a 2-5 min walk away. Genuinely a great place, would recommend to anyone.

    One of the all time best accommodations I have ever had the chance to stay at. The staff was golden from beginning to end, extremely helpful and friendly.
