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

We happened upon these apartments when looking for a centrally located hotel near the start of the Edinburgh Marathon. Hotels were booked. So I found these apartments. We reserved the 1 Parliament Square location. This could NOT have been better located for our long weekend in Edinburgh. After a long flight and drive into Edinburgh, we were able to find... More

From booking to check in - it was easy and no hassle. Derek met us when we arrived at the apartment and showed us around and explained how things worked. The apartment was so spacious. We were on the ground floor in a two bedroom apartment, which went up over two levels. The apartment was so spacious and less than... More

I booked the Parliament 1 Apartment for 5 people. The rooms were just as nice as the pictures online. I chose this space since it was very close to the Waverly train station that we came in from London. The building is old, but it was situated in such a great location that it didn't matter! There is a coffee... More

We stayed during Feb half term in the 2 bedroom Castle Terrace Apartment. We phoned Derek on arrival at the airport and he was extremely helpful in letting us into the apartment early.

Derek and the staff of Greyfriars Apartments were friendly and very helpful. We stayed at their property at 90 Grassmarket. A great location; the property was clean, warm and perfect for a long weekend. Can also recommend Maggie Dicksons downstairs - a lovely bar selling excellent beer, wine and good pub food.

Rented the Grassmarket one bedroom apartment for three nights and was very pleased with the accommodations, modern kitchen facilities, decor and close proximity to both the old and new town. We toured Edinburgh Castle, University of Edinburgh, Holyrood Palace and gallery, the Christmas markets, and most of the shops. Garfunkels and Hula were great breakfast destinations with free wifi. Good... More

Stayed for two nights during the week, the apartment is very spacious, easily accommodates five people, ideal for a family or group of friends. Very clean and well equipped, no need to bring hair dryers ladies. The shower was powerful and the towels and bed linen of a good quality. Central location just off the main run to the castle,...
