    Erm.......... Nothing. Was perfect for what we wanted it for & the private underground parking was a bonus.

    Very well equipped, clean, warm & comfortable. Its a shame we couldn't stay longer.

    Last minute change of apartment to the other end of the city. Apartment was filthy and I mean really filthy. Light bulbs missing, sink broken, hairs in the shower, floor dirty, dirty plates in cupboards, dish washer filter rancid, washing machine filthy. Noisey all night from drunks fighting in the street and then the road works straight outside start at 7am.

    Not a lot.

    Superficially was clean, but certain parts let down the overall standard e.g. someone's washing left in the washing machine.....chairs needed wiping down, lightshades above dining table covered in dirt.....cooker hood covered in dust and grease. Lovely apartment let down by lack of a more thorough clean.

    Location was excellent and easy to make arrangements for collecting keys and extending departure time.

    Been at this property before and it's starting to show its age. Some doors are in bad shape, the wooden floors are showing cracks and bathrooms look tired. Still a good spot but perhaps a bit too expensive for what you get.

    The apartment fixtures and fittings are looking a bit jaded, a few handles were broken and the waste disposal unit in the sink didn't work. The cleanliness of the kitchen area was poor, we had to wash most of the crockery before using as it was clear it hadn't been properly cleaned.. Whilst it is clearly a no-smoking apartment we did notice a faint aroma of cigar which is understandably difficult for Dreamhouse as they can't enforce their policy during a client's stay. Nonetheless, it was a minor irritation. A few little upgrades would go a long way, larger and better quality bed & mattress, a coffee making machine (cafetiers are very last century) and some champagne flutes were the little luxuries we would have liked.

    Great location close to the city centre (easy walking distance) and with free secure off-street parking. Excellent views of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags. Relatively quiet for somewhere so close to the city centre with a late night convenience store close by.

    The apartment is starting to look tired with damage to furnishing and fittings. We were only there in the evening so we were content to ignore faults. We did leave a list of faults so hopefully it will improve.

    The apartment was very tired, and could do with a proper clean, oven was dirty, rugs had been vacuumed but floor had not been cleaned, the ensuite shower door was yuk and previous occupants had obviously been smokers.
