The location is absolutely amazing. Walk out the back door and you are on the royal mile. We attended the Military Tattoo and were back in our room less than five minutes later!! That said, the apartments themself were just so - so. In 8A the futon covers were stained and the overall appearance of the room was not that... More

We stayed in the penthouse at Mound Apartments as a group of friends for a weekend in late April. You couldn't hope for a better location, just five minutes walk from the station a back door on to the royal mile and minutes away from Edinburgh Castle, pubs, restaurants and shops. The apartment is clean, modern and extremely spacious but... More

The apartment is so good. We slept so well on a wonderful mattress. The rooms were excellent and have been re-furbished. The heating was excellent and kept us very warm on some cold December days. The kitchen had everything we needed. All the rooms had such interesting views with the front rooms overlooking Princes Street and looking on to the... More

We enjoyed two days in Edinburgh at the Mound apartments. What a perfect location, just around the corner from Royal Mile, 5 minutes to all shops. The apartment was great, just what we needed, all amenities including laundry facilities if needed. We were on 5th floor but there is a lift, fantastic views. The Wash cafe beneath the apartment does... More

We recently enjoyed a four day break with two families + 1 sharing in the pent house at Mound Apartments on North Bank Street. The property is so spacious it felt like our own personal tardis finding rooms, corridors and little cubby holes to explore. The views from the apartment are breathtaking and look almost like perfectly framed pictures by... More

We were very pleased with the location of the apartment. It was in walking distance to everything! The apartment was up to date and well equipped to keep us feeling at ease for our two week holiday. We even used the kitchen a bunch. It's a very cosy apartment, just big enough for my husband and I. There was some... More

We spent a whole month in the apartment on the 8th floor and were absolutely happy about it. At first sight it looked small, but then we moved the furniture a bit and suddenly it was spacious enough. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen equipement worked very well and we had everything we needed. And as it was written many... More

This penthouse apartment on the 9th floor was perfect for us. The back-door led out onto the upper end of the Royal Mile and the views over Edinburgh to the coast and beyond were phenomenal. The bathroom was the only disappointing part as the door didn't lock and the shower was rubbish. Well equiped kitchen and huge central dining and... More

We booked for five nights starting August 14, 2013. First impressions are not great as the communal areas are shabby, carpets have seen better days and could use a good clean. We had apartment 8B, so appreciated the elevator. For the price, the apartment would be good value for money. As other reviews stated, the view is lovely and the... More

We stumbled across this penthouse when searching for group accommodation online and could not have been happier with it. The location is amazing - really central, just a few minutes walk from the train station/airport bus drop-off point, and with incredible views across the city. It was the perfect location for exploring different parts of the city on foot. Inside,... More
