We stayed at the Playhouse apartment with two families. The apartment is actually a small house, which we found to be very cosy. Its 4 bedrooms are comfortable, clean and well sized. The living room is relatively small. We were met by a very friendly and helpfull person. As requested baby cots had been set up, so the infants in... More

Arrived as a group of 8 women, away for the weekend and at first glance, was a little disappointed that the apartment was the basement apartment. This disappointment soon disappeared when we went in. We were greeted by a lovely and very helpful gentleman who explained many of the local sights. The apartment itself was beautiful. It was spacious and... More

We stayed here on a short mid-week break to visit the Christmas Markets. The location was fantastic, right on the Royal Mile, 5 mins walk up to the Castle or down to Princes Street (where the markets were) and also the train station. The markets were lovely, not too crowded (like Manchester) and the Ferris Wheel was a great way... More

My family loved this little condo right on the Royal Mile. We were visiting Edinburgh during the Fringe Festival and you have first row seats to all of the entertainment. Wonderful location. In addition, the condo was very roomy, clean and quite comfortable. They also included a continental breakfast one morning. The owner met us right on time and was... More

Family enjoyed our stay and loved the views from the large opening windows in the living room. Compared to a hotel the large living space was excellent with 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining area. The owner was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city and its attractions. Wi-Fi was included. The bedrooms were located at the back of... More

We stayed at the Royal Mile Apartment for 2 nights. The location is perfect for exploring the city, and getting here is convenient since the train station is only 5 minutes walk away. Also, the apartment is close to departure points of various local tours in case you want to go to the Highland. (highly recommended!) The room, though not... More
