These apartments are the perfect location for exploring the sights of this wonderful city. We stayed in apartment 2 which has three bedrooms and can sleep up to 8 people. It is on the first floor, so perfect for getting an amazing view out to the Forth but not so high up that we had to carry our luggage too... More

Our family of four stayed in a three bedroom apartment on the top floor. The views were amazing and the apartment was perfect for us. The company was an absolute pleasure to deal with and I would have no hesitation in referring them. The location of the apartments is great and we walked to everything. I wish we could have... More

Just back from my hen weekend and had apartments 2 and 3. 19 of us were staying. Everyone was very impressed with them. Loads of space, nicely decorated and very central. Only one negative thing- if you're a light sleeper the rooms at the front can be quite noisy as facing the main rd. only seemed to bother me though... More

We rented 3 apartments in the building for a hen weekend for 24 people. The apartments were clean, modern, fully equipped and a great location. We had a "girls night in" on Friday and had a big shop delivered, the kitchen was well equipped and made it easy to feed all of us. Loads of coffee, tea, washing up liquid,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the City Centre on York Place, our luxury apartments are ideal for larger groups and families looking for that little bit extra during their stay. A converted Georgian Townhouse, these apartments are all slightly different (keeping with the historic nature of the building) but all to a very high standard. The apartments feature multiple flat screen televisions, many en suite bath and shower rooms, huge lounges in each apartments as well as quality huge bedrooms (towels and linen included). The basement level has 2 apartments and they have a feature spiral staircase leading to the open plan kitchen/dining area and lounge and private landscaped outdoor area. The main door has 4 large apartments that were completely renovated with high quality fittings that really fit in with the historic nature of the building - a few of the lounges are huge and ideal for groups. With Harvey Nichols, Jenners of Edinburgh, and the boutiques of Multrees Walk close by the discerning city visitor can shop in style by day and sample the bars and restaurants of George Street by night. The Castle and the very popular Edinburgh Playhouse are within walking distance. The brand new tram system will take you directly from the airport to the door of our York Place Luxury Apartments! ... more   less
