We spent 4 nights on X'mas eve and very much appreciated the flat. Can't be better located as it is few hundred metres from Edinburgh Castle, the house of parliament (the old one) and few meters from the Royal Mile, as well as from the Grass market...Beautifully decorated, with 2 bedrooms ( a sunny and quieter one that can accommodate...

After a glitch in the booking.com system we were allowed to book an unavailable room at Greyfriars Apartments. Odette and Derek promptly and helpfully rearranged alternative accommodation during the busy New Year period. Whilst we didn't have the benefit of staying here I would recommend the service provided and can't thank staff enough for their alternative arrangements.

This is more like a furnished apartment than a hotel. It's fairly big and tastefully decorated. There is a kitchen. Location was great.... right in the middle of everything. You step out into Parliament Square! The main complaint is that checking in can be a hassle if you arrive late. During normal hours, you may need to go to the... More

My husband and I stayed at 90 Grassmarket for four nights in October of 2014. I highly recommend this apartment. It was very clean, a great price, and the location was perfect. We could walk everywhere and loved staying in Grassmarket. It had a full kitchen so we saved some money by walking to Sainsbury and eating in. After I... More

Ignoring the long haul up 7 or so flights of stairs, this is easily the best accommodation I've stayed in on a break. Peter is incredibly focused on making sure visitors have a great time, so much so he's produced a great guide on the best local restaurants, recommending the steak and mussel bar which is a must visit. The... More

These apartments are smack dab in the middle of the action in Edinburgh. We walked to all the main attractions nearby. Lots of great food and shopping right out the door. Apts have washer/dryer which was great (need better operating instructions though) and huge rooms. Only drawback is no parking. You have to pay to park and it is about... More

This apartment was outstanding! I booked it for my parents, my 12yo son, my husband, and me. My parents had the smaller queen bedroom with the en suite. My husband, son, and I shared the larger queen + twin bedroom. I thought I was booking a 2 bedroom, 1 bath... so the added En Suite was a great treat. I... More

Stayed here for two nights at the end of July. Being three adults and two children meant that staying in a hotel would have been difficult and expensive. So the apartment on castle terrace which slept five persons in two rooms solved that problem for us. Rates still aren't cheap but to be in central Edinburgh during peak season it... More

The Greyfriars apartments are in a fantastic city centre location, literally 2 minutes from Edinburgh castle and Royal Mile and therefore around 20 minutes leisurely walk from Holyrood Palace - really from a location perspective they are sensational. When you first see the apartments from the outside you find yourself wondering what you have done- they are located right next... More

Apartment has large livingroom and kitchen upstairs to the first bathroom next to a big double room with a triple room next door with en-suite. We were 5 woman and... More
