St. Giles Apartments was a great place to stay in Edinburgh. Very clean and great location. I didn't deal with the people in the office directly, but my daughter did and she said they were friendly and helpful. We were able to leave our luggage in the office after we checked out, which was convenient. I would recommend staying here.... More

Stayed in Johnston Terrace apartment for the first time for one night on 16 November. Booked last minute so got a great deal. The apartment was lovely, stylishly decorated and with a great view of Edinburgh Castle. A perfect base for exploring all that Edinburgh has to offer. Just wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to visit again soon.

Used these apartments for the first time. 3 couples arriving from all over the UK. Great value for money. Beautiful apartment. Very central and handy for everything. We were in apartment 6. Only drawback was we were on the top floor of the building and there's no lift. However for those younger and fitter this would be ideal. Already booked... More

What a fabulous place to stay. Overlooking St Giles cathedral it was the perfect location. Staff were great showing us around. 3 bedrooms in our one, one with en suite. Large sitting/dining room, and large kitchen. Tiring climbing up the steep stairs but kept us fit lol. Can't wait to stay here again.

Location was excellent and the apartment well equipped and comfortable. The apartment overlooked St Giles so we were in the heart of the activities. The bedroom was at the back and was lovely and quiet. It was getting chilly and the heating soon had the place cozy and warm. The check in staff were friendly and efficient. The maintenance man,...

Comfy apartment with all you need for a break. Excellent central location, tucked just off the Royal Mile. 2 out of 3 mobiles didn't have reception and there was no wifii, but not an issue - too busy out and about. Staff really nice, helpful and accommodating. Will be returning to these apartments.

Due to the location being in the heart of the old town surrounded by many larger historic buildings,... More

Right across the street from St. Giles and in the center of everything. Comfortable furniture, stocked with everything you would need. Comfortable bed, large bathroom and a great view. Would go there again in a heartbeat.
