Perfect location right in the centre of Edinburgh. Close to all the shops and attractions. We have stayed in similar apartments before for much higher price! Very clean, spacious and modern. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend to anyone!

We stayed from the 12th to16th July in Fishmarket apartment. The area was fantastic however there were a few issues with the apartment, such as rubbish bags and overflowing cigarette bin outside which was left like it for two days. There was no wifi, the shower temp was not adjustable and shower head fixing broken, there was a lot of... More

Four of us stayed here last week for three nights. You could not get a better location. It was so central to everywhere and within walking distance of all the major attractions. The rooms were small, shower wasn't great but I would still recommend these apartments as a place to stay.

We had apartment 3 @St Giles, this was fine for our party of 5. Three lovely double bedrooms, one en-suite. Good welcome pack of water, orange juice, tea, coffee and sugar. Nice touch was also the pack of shortbread biscuits!!! Only thing missing was milk, however not a big issue as just popped to local papershop and bought a pint.... More

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

We appreciate feedback when it is fair but on this occasion we do have to dispute some of your points. The apartment you booked is located in the heart of centre, like many city centres, there is no free parking in the close vicinity. However, we do provide guests with information on the closest and cheapest parking options. As with... 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

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
