We stayed here for three nights at the end of October 2014 and I can't recommend it enough. The location is quiet, but only 15 minutes' walk from Princes Street. The apartment was very spacious, clean, well-equipped and well decorated. The staff were very helpful: I rang to ask if we could leave our cases after our flight (5 hours... More

I stayed here for some time during September 2014. We had a 3 bedroom flat with nice big kitchen and living room. Kitchen was well equipped with wine glasses and all.

We've been staying for five nights. Perfect located for visiting the city, modern, neat and proper apartment but of course effected from the visiting guests. Big kitchen equipped a little scanty.

Located about 30 mins walk from Waverley station, apartments are aimed at longer stay professionals. It felt I was embedded in a student commune but perfectly adequate. Facilities ok but more 3* - curtains didn't really fit and temperature control was just by radiator in the room. Only stayed for a night so a bit of a gaff, buying food... More

What we needed for the festival as a family with a teenage daughter. Spacious and very comfortable apartments within a 15 minute walk of the centre of town.
