We stopped for 2 nights at this apartment with a group of 16. At the time of booking, this was the advertised maximum sleep, however, the owners have done right to now suggest a max of 14 as the 3rd sofa bed we used was too small to sleep 2. The owners were great in their flexibility, allowing us to have a 17th member, utilizing adequate floor space to add a single air bed. Everything was clean and well kept. Very impressed with the kitchen which was used to cook breakfast and to use as a social room due to it's large size. Although we didn't use the restaurant downstairs, the staff were very helpful when introducing us to the apartment.
I agree with previous comments about the smoke alarm, which we easily resolved by removing the battery for the short period of cooking time.
The apartment is withing walking distance from the city centre, however, we used numerous taxi's during our stay which were immediately flagged down with ease. There are numerous pubs located within sight, all of which were welcoming to our stag party.
Overall, a very good apartment for a low budget.

Your feedback is so much apprecaited. I agree sleeping 14 is much better now and excellent value. The owners are lovely I agree. They are approachable and flexible and want our guests' to be comfortable in their lovely apartment.
I am sorry about the smoke alarm. We thought we had resolved this. New hard wire alarm will be fitted now. Less sensitive we have been told. On behalf of the owners Tony, Angela and Edbook we want to thank you and your 16 guests' so much for looking after the apartment and the residents respectfully. You are welcome back anytime.
Thanks again Evelyn and Elaine (Edbook)

Thank you so much to everyone at Edbook for making our stay so comfortable. From start to finish our holiday was just fantastic. The owners of this apartment are very nice. They own the family restaurant downstairs where the food is just the best italian I have tasted. The apartment is definately suitable for large groups . There was 14 of us and we did not feel we were in any way on top of each other. Evelyn and Elaine will help you organise anything you wish within reason. Nothing seems to be a bother to them. Well done Edbook for being so accomodating. We are booking next year for sure. Lots of love Liz, family and all our friends who were also very happy with this service xxxxxx

Had a fantastic hen weekend in Edinburgh. The apartment was stunning and all my girls commented how lovely it was.
We had take-away pizzas from La Favorita which were amazing including the best gluten free pizza I've ever tasted.

We had an amazing weekend in Edinburgh for my hen party. I had 10 hens and LaFavorita apartment was perfect it was clean, spacious and in an ideal location. We used the restaurant on the Friday for take away and it was superb. Everyone commented on how nice the apartment was so there will lots of recommendations and i'll definitely be using it again, just need an excuse for another weekend away! Only complaint i would make is the smoke alarm is right above the cooker in the kitchen so it goes off constantly when cooking but everything else was perfect.Thank you also to Evelyn for your help.

We had a fantastic stay in Edinburgh. LaFavorita was perfect for our stag party – there were 12 of us staying. Newly renovated, it’s bright, spacious, clean and very comfortable.
There’s plenty on offer locally for a pint or a bite to eat but it’s not too far at all from the main centre.
Evelyn from Edbook was superb and helped ensure our stay was problem free, start to finish. Many thanks.

Myself and a group of friends stayed at LaFavorita for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is very clean, spacious and located in an ideal area for all amenities.
We have been very well looked after from start to finish and I can't thank Evelyn enough. We will definitely be booking this apartment again next year.
We also highly recommend LaFavorita Italian restaurant located outside the apartment. Great food and atmosphere whether eating in or getting a takeaway.
Already looking forward to coming back in 2013.
Thanks once again Evelyn.
