"This is the nicest Holiday Home we have ever stayed in (and we’ve stayed in some very lovely ones!) The flat is absolutely beautiful - both architecturally and the decor. It’s brilliantly located and Fiona looked after us extremely well whilst being totally discreet. We’ll definitely be back!"
"If you are in Edinburgh, 2 Albyn Place should be your address! What a beautiful apartment - spotless, welcoming, comfortable and in a great location. Fiona has such attention to every detail - we felt so at home there. The apartment is more beautiful than the photos - convenient to all you might want to see and do in Edinburgh- we had the BEST time- thanks, Fiona!!!!"
"If you get the opportunity to stay at Fiona's place in Edinburgh - do not hesitate! It is absolutely beautiful, very large and comfy.

We would stay at Fiona's apartment again in a heartbeat!"
"We have no words to describe this amazing place. This is the best Airbnb we’ve stayed at. There are details in every corner that makes this home look like a palace! We really appreciate the effort that Fiona has put into this Airbnb to make it extra comfortable and beautiful for guests. Why would you need a hotel when you can stay at this fabulous house? 5 stars for location! We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. And last but not least, you will find this home sparkling clean upon your arrival."
"Simply amazing! Staying at Fiona's apartment made our long weekend visit to Edinburgh memorable. Highly recommended."

“Your dream trip to Edinburgh starts here, with Fiona‘s flat. I have stayed in Edinburgh several times and this apartment by far exceeded my every wish and expectation. Decorated with period furnishings and decorative arts but with a nod toward the contemporary, this apartment with its central location, exquisite amenities and modern comfort made my stay in the city truly memorable. From my first communication with Fiona , I knew I had found the right place for my homebase during a trip to Edinburgh. Fiona is kind and quick to respond and answered all of my questions promptly. I can’t describe how exquisite this apartment is, Edinburgh is truly right outside the front door yet at night you feel like you’re in your own world in this peaceful location. I will never stay in another location when I visit Edinburgh, I have found my home away from home.”
"We had a fabulous stay in this amazing apartment. It's so comfortable and the attention to detail is second to none. The location was perfect."
"WOW! Beyond gorgeous. This is hands-down the most beautiful, luxurious Airbnb my husband and I have ever stayed in. Never before have we been so impressed by a listing only to find that the place itself is even better in person! What the photos don’t capture are the super high ceilings that made me feel like a queen on our honeymoon. This apartment felt like a home - it is so well designed with the comfiest furniture. I loved reading in the big comfy armchair with a cup of tea; there were some days we didn’t even go out and enjoyed this little palace instead! The location is great as well- we’ve never stayed in this part of town before and I wasn’t sure how easy it would be to get to attractions, but it was just perfect! Less hilly than Old Town so it was even easier to get around in foot, and I LOVED all of the designer shopping close by. Fiona was a super helpful and communicative host as well, warmly meeting us at check in and going over specific things we might need. This is the best Airbnb experience we’ve had yet, and will definitely be our go-to whenever we come to Edinburgh. 11/10, highly recommend!"

The apartment is in a perfect location, not too far from anything at all and absolutely gorgeous inside. We will be staying here again next time we find ourselves in Edinburgh! Perfect."
“Utterly stunning. Our jaws dropped when we entered this beautiful flat. It is like stepping back in time but with all the modern luxuries. Beautifully furnished and a great base to come back to after wandering around town. We needed a short break away after lockdown and this was perfect. Fiona is a delightful host and couldn't have been more welcoming!"

Absolutely everything was thought of by the owners of this property. I could not fault it in any way. It was perfection.”
“Quite simply the best apartment we've ever rented anywhere, and we're serial city breakers. It's even better than the photos. It's like staying in a suite in a 5 star hotel but with an excellent, spacious and well equipped kitchen. Add to that some nice welcome provisions and it's pretty perfect. Edinburgh is a beautiful city and the apartment is well located and feels very secure. Excellent!”
“Absolutely loved our stay at Albyn Place. A beautiful apartment in a superb spot in New Town. We were able to ‘work from home’ during the day and enjoy Edinburgh’s amazing bars and restaurants in the evening. Magic.”

“Albyn Place is an amazing home away from home in stylish New Town. The spacious and tasteful apartment is to die for. Certainly going to keep coming back here! thank you so much, Fiona!”
"A perfect place to stay in Edinburgh. 5 Stars."
"We spent Christmas exploring Edinburgh. Full days walking the city, evenings out and a great flat to return to for rejuvenating to start it all again. The flat has everything you need, clean, well appointed, details and amenities that are found in fine hotels. It felt like home, but the city at our fingertips due to its location. It was very quiet and felt safe both inside and in the surrounding neighborhood. Could easily live here!"
"Book now, fantastic location and blissful apartment!"
"Thank you so much Fiona for this incredible stay in your stunning apartment and for your grace and kindness in hosting us! We had an absolutely wonderful time!"
"This apartment was so beautiful, we were so impressed with the historic details, 18 ft hi ceilings, art, decor, comfy bed, luxurious bath and modern & well equipped kitchen. The location in New Town was perfect. We walked to the Castle, Royal Mile and all of the sights. We’ve stayed at a lot of Airbnb places all over Europe and I have to say, this is one of the best. I felt like we’re staying in a home that should be in Architectural Digest magazine with incredibly comfortable furnishings. If we come to Edinburgh again, we would definitely stay here.
"Albyn Place is simply beautiful! Very clean and comfortable. Fiona is a welcoming and attentive host. The location is walkable to tourist sites and great restaurants. The apartment is probably the prettiest we have ever rented!"
"Fiona is such a gracious, welcoming, and responsive host! We absolutely enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous apartment. The place is freshly renovated, stylishly decorated with high-end period furniture, and impeccably clean. The location is perfect - in the heart of the New Town, with all the shops, restaurants, and transportation just around the corner, yet away from all the hassle and bustle. In sum, I can't recommend the host and the place high enough, it was an unforgettably indulgent experience!"
"Fiona's property is absolutely OUTSTANDING in ALL aspects. I am a well seasoned traveler and have stayed in many fine hotels and guesthouses around the world. My experience at No. 2 Albyn place is among some of the best stays I have experienced anywhere. The attention to the fine detail, the 'homeliness,' the location, the security, the cleanliness and the HIGH STANDARD make this an exceptional place to stay. We stayed for three days/ 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer, it was a difficult place to leave!! If you want to stay in the lap of luxury, feel like royalty and be pampered with the finest of furnishings and decor....look no further. I have very high standards and expectations when I travel having worked in the hospitality area for some time and seen it all - both good and bad. I cannot recommend this INCREDIBLE PROPERTY enough and if you are seeking some time out as a solo traveler and wish to TREAT yourself, if you are traveling on a ROMANTIC BREAK and want to feel like you are in the 5 star plus hotel with all the privacy and comforts you would wish for, and if you are someone who appreciate the good life.....this is the place to stay. Will absolutely be returning and have already recommended it to friends family and work colleagues."
“Thank you for the most amazing stay in Edinburgh! We could not have been happier with the apartment! It exceeded our expectations by far! With really lovey little touches including an authentically Scottish welcome basket which was perfect after our long journey! We truly felt like Georgian royalty in this New Town property, within a stones throw of the main streets and attractions of Edinburgh - all walking distance! We will definitely be back again! Felt completely at home with added luxury! Highly recommended!!
"Excellent location, furnished to an extremely high standard, quality utensils....a little bit of luxury."
"Great hospitality and a fantastic place to stay."
"Lovely stay, brilliant location and truly a home away from home! 10/10"
"We booked on short notice - Fiona responded quickly, helped us to check in and was so kind. The place is beautiful, in a great location and filled with welcoming touches. We had a fantastic time in the heart of Edinburgh because of EscapeToEdinburgh.com. Highly recommended."
"Wow! Was not expecting that. From the second the door opens, your mouth will drop open in awe. We have never stayed in a place with such an impact - we usually stay at Four Seasons Hotels, but this time we branched out and so glad we did!! This was beyond our expectations by far - massively impressive on so many levels. The entrance into the building makes you feel like your entering a ' Golden Age' mansion - then when the apartment door opens you will be amazed. Every detail is covered - furniture, soft goods, books, gorgeous drapes, a bathroom to remember for a life time - then you enter the kitchen and say OMG! Heated floors, brand new fixtures, appliances and that kitchen chandelier! Crazy beautiful - beautiful linens, luxurious bed - You will NOT be disappointed - memorable."
"I came to Edinburgh for a short stay in the dead of winter and was lucky enough to book Albyn Place. It's a beautiful, spacious apartment with a lovely kitchen and bathroom especially and it was perfectly comfortable as it got cold outside. I could easily walk around the New Town and get to the Old Town in 10 minutes. Check-in was easy and quick and Fiona responded quickly to any questions I had. 10/10. I would stay again."
"An absolute delight. We’ve stayed at every 5 star hotel in Edinburgh. No more...we’re headed to Fiona’s!"
"Fiona’s place really is unique. The photos show you that the place is lovely and then you arrive and it is even more beautiful! The high ceilings, marble fireplace, extra soft bedding and heated flooring in the kitchen along with the all the attention to detail make you feel like you are Scottish royalty. Location is great, it is in a nice quiet area opposite a park and only 10 mins walk from city centre and tram to the airport."
“Fiona’s flat at 2 Albyn Place was a great base for our visit to Edinburgh. It is in a very centrally located and historic Georgian “terrace” building, beautifully decorated and downright palatial. We could not have asked for more. I recommend it highly!”
