I stayed with my family of 4 members in July 2014 when we attended the Graduation Ceremony at Edinburgh University. The graduation hall was within a 2 to 3 minute walk from the apartment. Many restaurants are within a short walk. There is plenty of street parking nearby and also around the university in George Square at £2,20 an hour... More

We really enjoyed our 2-day stay in a clean and nicely decorated 2 bed apartment. It's located close to the city centre, about a 10min walk, and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby, as well as supermarkets and pretty much everything else you might need. The bedrooms are a bit small, but contain all you need, including a... More

I stayed at Nicolson apartments for the weekend with my partner and two friends and we were pleasantly surprised just how nice they were. The bedrooms were slightly on the small side but adequate and the other rooms were tastefully decorated, clean and spacious. The kitchen has all the necessary utilities to cook your own meals and there's also a... More

Very tidy and stylish, good equipment and nice location. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful, when collecting the key. 3 grocery stores vjust around the corner and a reasonable walk to the center. Actually we usually used taxi because it was so cheap! I'd defenately go again if in a need for apartment in Edinburgh.

Stayed with 4 friends for 2 nights as we were celebrating a birthday, the apartment served it's purpose. Good area, nice comfy beds, very clean, it's best for if you are looking for a place to be social as all rooms are very much linked, in the apartment we were in, Recommend it.

We were really looking to staying in an apartment in Edinburgh appose to a hotel. We had to go to the office to collect the keys which was no problem. And then we had a 10 - 15 minute walk to find the apartment. Eventually we did and arrived at apartment 1. On first impressions it was lovely, bathroom good... More

Stayed for 4 nights for the fringe festival. Paid extra for 'luxurious appartments' this wasn't the case. Very noisy, next to a pub which never seemed to close. Very small 2 bedroom apartment, scruffy furniture and a stained setee. Good location but very over priced.

One more modern, but both where of good standards. There was some noise at night from bar next door, but that was the only problem we found, but... More

Not quite up to the standard of the Knight Residence but the location was good and we were able to stay for only one night which is difficult to get in most other serviced apartments. The apartment was to a good standard, clean and reasonably well sound proofed. Unlike the Knight Residence and Holyrood Aparthotel you do not get much... More
