The apartment was adequate, bedrooms a little small, but linen was of good quality and clean. It is well placed (except if you have travelled by car - multi storey is £24/day - we used local knowledge and parked out of the centre). Exterior looks promising. Areas for improvement: - very noisy bathroom fan & water pump - chipped mug,... More

no real complaints, spent 2 nights, rooms were clean and we were close to the royal mile (300 yards) I would recommend people staying in Edinburgh to rent here. Staff was friendly, rate was fair. if you are looking to be in the heart of the action (pubs, restaurants, castle etc)

Spent 2 nights in 11/2 Old Fishmarket Close. Never stayed in an apartment before and after this experience likely never to again. Dodgy people hanging around entrance to apartment smoking some kind of drugs, drinking cider and loads of litter, with 2 children didn't feel safe going out/in of the apartment. Something weird going on with plumbing, really loud noise... More

I am sorry to hear your comments, however, it is unfortunate that our reception office were not made aware of any issues during your stay. In order to help guests as much as possible, we also provide a 24 hour emergency telephone line. Should there have been anyone “hanging around” in the vicinity of your apartment building, at any point,... More

I received the best help ever from a member of the reception team who went out of his way to ensure the apartment we booked was suitable for one of our group who has a medical condition. Thank you so much. Some five star hotels could learn a lesson from the way you dealt with my request.

We stayed there for one night in a 2 bedroom house (20/2 Old Tolbooth Wynd). The apartment was very clean, warm and very comfortable. But be ready to walk a bit, if you have to visit other places. However, the walk could be another plus point of staying here :) It gets a bit quite in the evening and its... More

We stayed in the 2-room apartment last month. Was pretty impressed with the apartment which was new, clean and had a well equipped kitchen. Appreciated the gift of the shortbread, a nice gesture as we arrived at the apartment late without dinner! Located along the Royal Mile, it was easy to get around. Our stay would have been perfect if... More

Staff were great, extremely friendly and do helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Apartments ideally located for Holyrood and Royal Mile and short walk to Princes Street. Lovely touches as toiletries, chocolates, bottled water and orange juice provided.

The bedrooms were a good size with comfortable beds,crisp linen and fluffy towels. The lounge/kitchen area was big with plenty of room for four of us and every thing was very... More
