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

We stayed in Old Tolboth Wynd 2 for a long weekend. Everything we needed was provided, including bottled water, shortbread and chocolates on the bed. Ours even came with a parking space in a secure garage which was great. It was well furnished and to a high standard. We were in a walkable distance (even with a short legged 5... 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.

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.
