The apartment felt very luxurious and the view of St Catherine's cathedral was stunning, you can’t beat the location. The staff were very friendly and helpful, we particularly liked that the office allowed you to keep luggage in there after and before check out if needed. Overall, the stay was great and the apartment was the icing on the cake.... More

Tried these people out, because was in Edinburgh on business, but wanted to bring the family along to see more family in the area etc (it was school holidays).

We stayed in apartment 1A after booking online - when I collected the keys there was an imposing list of situations where I would incur additional charges, which didn't seem very welcoming. Still, once I signed and received the keys the apartment was very stylish and the location is fantastic - however, we weren't able to access the wifi and... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the St Giles apartments with our two college-aged children over New Years in Edinburgh. The apartments couldn't have been better located in the city center, but we felt the apartment was very sparse and LOUD. The floors creaked terribly and the water heater/processor for the bathroom was so loud it could wake... More

The apartments are directly opposite and overlook the St Giles cathedral - and right in the heart of the old town. They are spacious, well equipped and the staff are right next door to help. Our family of 6 were there for Hogmanay and it was perfect.
