This apartment is pleasantly furnished, close to local transport, shops and restaurants. Use of swimming pool is a bonus. However, ensuite bathroom flooring tiles were badly cracked leaving some protruding sharp edges. Dust present around skirting boards and plug points: pillows were somewhat stained. We found some cooking pots had been left without being cleaned. This property did not have... More

I thought long and hard before writing this review as my impressions seem vastly different to those already posted. I can only assume that the reviews posted are not for 16 James Square. The apartment sleeps six people in three bedrooms. One King, one double and a twin room. The double bedroom is so small you have to climb across... More

Stayed here for 5 days for a 2 family getaway to the festival this month. The apartment was clean and tidy, with 4 bedrooms, one with ensuite and a family bathroom. Its very close to Haymarket so public transport links in to the centre were very easy - even with 5 small children! The swimming pool was great, a little... More

Booked this apartment for 2 nights at first weekend of Edinburgh festival, and we weren't disappointed! It had the wow factor, roof top was amazing for a drink and a bit of sun shine, the pool was fantastic too! Beds were super comfy. We were made to feel really welcome, bread and milk, coffee etc ready on arrival for us... More

The apartment was homely, well equipped and spacious. It was in a great area close to Haymarket train station and close to local shops, with a new entertainment complex close by with restaurants, bowling and cinema. Local bus services were frequent and good value at £7.50 for a family day ticket. The on site swimming pool, although rather cold, was... More

The apartment was lovely and exactly as shown in pictures. It fits 8 comfortably and there were more than enough towels provided for us. We actually arrived pretty late at night, even though the hosts weren't able to meet us in person, they left very clear instructions on how to obtain the keys. To be honest, we weren't able to...

We booked a stay at one of the apartments owned by Edninburgh at Home via a Spanish agent called Reservetous. Despite a few worried posts on the trip advisor forums from others trying to find out as if to were they legit, the booking was valid but they required a bit of prompting to send the details across. Our party... More

I'm sorry I am a year behind in this review as the apartment was an excellent place to come home to every day. Frederika and family manage the building beautifully and are very welcoming and helpful. The apartment was comfortable and convenient and as we had a car it was wonderful to have a secure car park. Would definitely stay... More
