Check in very easy at the office downstairs, staff exceptionally helpful and friendly, offering to carry suitcases etc. The apartments are refurbished homes in old Edinburgh Royal Mile in the pedestrian mall part. Castle, tourist shopping and places to eat and drink abound. The Apartment 6 we had was very nice, some of the walls had minor damage etc but... More

Edinburgh City Apartments was our first stop after twenty-four hours of travel and it was absolutely lovely. The flat has a great view of the old city and castle. It is a short walk to everything. It was much larger than we had anticipated [huge], impeccably clean with a well-equipped kitchen and good wi-fi. Upon arrival, our host took one... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on part of a Scottish road trip. This was the first chance we had to really unpack and settle in somewhere, and the apartment was a perfect base. Located right on the Royal Mile it was an easy walk to most things we needed to get to. The train station was only a few... More

We had 3 fantastic nights staying here in Edinburgh. Apartment 11 was stunning, located on the top floor of the building above 217/reception. On arrival we were greeted by very friendly staff who showed us up the (very very high) spiral staircase. A lovely touch but was tiring! However the room was definitely worth it, clean, well laid out, beautifully... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent visit to Edinburgh. The apartment and location were excellent. Well appointed kitchen, quiet at night and plenty of space. Would recommend it to others. Very close to Edinburgh castle and an easy walk to shops, restaurants and the airport bus.

Very happy with our stay there. Central location, good value for money. Apartment on top floor was also very spacious with comfy king size bed. Minus- noisy boiler, furniture and carpet a bit worned out.And of course a lot of stairs...

Stayed here with family over Hogmanay, and since there were 8 of us of varying ages and genders we decided an apartment would be more fun than a hotel. The location is fabulous, right on the Royal Mile. Easy walk up to the castle or down to the palace. Plenty of food options around, but also a grocery store a... More

Had a fantastic view of Edinburgh, staff were very accommodating ,the washer was broken in our room so they came and collected our dirty laundry and had it sent out to be cleaned and then returned it to our room the next day, fantastic location , would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend this place.

Right in the heart of the Royal Mile, short walk from all the major attractions and also some very good local restaurants. Really good rooms, well decorated and comfortable. Staff were very helpful. Really great find!

We stayed here for 3 nights for a post xmas break. Lovely location, could do with some info on booking that explains that your chosen accommodation is not near the office you collect the keys from, not a problem for us, but maybe for those with children/older generation. Fabulous central location for all attractions. Sold as 4 star, with the... More
