Do not book with this company- henedinburgh.com of festival apartments edinburgh. This is a scam - the man who owns the company is very aggressive & demands money. You book & pay a deposit, following this he demands the remaining amount of money before he will give details of the booking. Luckily I realised this before it ruined my sisters... More

The place is crawling with mice. There's a strange lady that sits in the corridor outside the apartment spying on you. There's no locks on the bathrooms. There's no hot water. There's no means of escape from fire, no safety regulations are followed. The place is filthy. Two of our party refused to stay upon seeing the apartment. I'd rather... More

The hen party was in June 2014 but I had received email confirmation of the address,and over the months in between I had spoken with Ian who confirmed that the accommodation was ideal, the... More

I had originally booked the Party Palace and without any explanation was sent here. The showers flooded, the light in one shower room didn't work, there weren't any locks on the bathroom doors.the guy we booked through, let himself in when he knew we would be out at an activity.Not worth it-best staying in a budget hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights and we had a great time! Flat was nice and ideal for this kind of stay. Met the landlord on the first night he was nice and... More

I recently stayed in the apartment on Lothian Road for my surprise Hen do, which my friends and family had spent months planning. It was perfect that we could all stay under the one roof. However, the apartments were shoddy and unkempt. I arrived a little later than everyone else and when I got there with some of my friends... More

Ideal location and apartments for large groups heading to Edinburgh for the weekend. The accommodation consisted of all that is required for large groups, spacious kitchen and lounge allowed for socialising in the apartment before heading out to the cafe's and bars right on the doorstep, the ideal start to a night out on the town and a good base...

This place was perfect for us, right in the centre of town, didn't need a cab to get anywhere. Clean beds and towels. Great kitchen and a jacuzzi bath! Door person to make sure we all got in safe too!

I have recently stayed in the apartments with a large group of friends for a weekend away. The accommodation is well furnished and there is ample room for a large group. The night time staff are extremely helpful. The location it's self is close to a number of good locations to visit in the city, with Edinburgh castle within walking... More
