I booked this apartment for my forthcoming stay on the direct website as a non-refundable rate only to realise that bigger apartment is available cheaper somewhere else with flexibility to cancel. After contacting them with a reference screenshot,they denied it actually happened and maintained that their site is the cheapest.After insisting many times their attempt to negate what I said...

Arrived, got keys and was slightly concerned by initial smell in the corridor of the block... Took the lift up and was disappointed the smell was also on 3rd floor. Apartment was tired and of poor finish, curtains drooping and not closing properly as so many hooks missing, fridge smelled really badly and zero phone signal ANYWHERE although WIFI was... More

Stayed in these apartments as a big group whilst on a hen night, The apartments are spacious and the décor is lovely and there are all the facilities you need. The only thing we would change is that there were only mirrors in the bathrooms (which easily steam up when people are having showers) and one in the hallway and... More

I stayed at the Hotel apartments with my partner for 3 nights. We were given a two bedroom apartment, one room had a bathroom en suite. The other room had twin beds. The apartment was spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. The double bed was slightly uncomfortable as it was two single mattresses on a double bed base and... More

We hoped to stay here for a relaxing weekend as my mother in law got better after an illness. We are very disappointed and would never stay here again. The rooms are dark, no view, both lamps in one of the bedrooms were broken leaving us with 1 lamp between 2 bedrooms, the heater in the living room didn't work,... More

Large flat but very tired and of poor quality. Odour in flat and not clean at all with crisp remains on window ledge and filthy windows. Curtains hanging off and holes in wall. Would not recommend. Looking for a positive - fantastic views and nice walks along the front. Good base if exploring further afield but not for anyone without... More

We stayed here as a walk-in as the apartment we had booked with a different company fell through on the day. I must say the price and location were amazing, we were on the 6th floor with a sea view. Although 2 bedrooms there were only 2 of us, so space was not an issue, the facilities were all there,... More

Location was great with spectacular views of the Firth of Forth, easily within 100m of the seafront with easy access to walks along the side of the waterfront. Apartment was well equipped and the basics were provided such as tea ,coffee and milk portions. Staff were very helpful at reception. 24 hour Asda was only 2 minutes away and a... More

The main advantages of the Hot-el Apartment is its quiet location, and great views of the Firth of Forth. Leith is close by with its boutiques shops, restaurants and attractive harbour. There is also a huge shopping centre and multi-screen cinema within a very short drive (or brisk walk). Central Edinburgh is a 20 minute bus drive away. Service at... More
