I stayed here this week for one night, booked last minute for one night, great location on West Nicolson Street which was ideal for the Festival Theatre. Shortbread and complimentary water in the room which was a nice touch.

Beautifully appointed ground floor self catering flat in a great location with a decent cafe and a Sainsbury's within a minute's walk. Comfortable bed, lovely bathroom, excellent kitchen and dining space. Excellent welcome at office when picking up keys. Problem with the eating was dealt with politely, promptly and satisfactorily. We would certainly stay here again.

I stayed for three nights in the 2 bed Studio apartment, which is the smallest of the Nicolson Apartments, but perfect for single travellers like me or couples. Be aware if considering this apartment that it is on the fourth floor and there is no lift. This didn't bother me as it was good exercise for me, but not hugely... More

Arrived back today, 6 th oct from a three night stay at Nicolson Apartments. My husband and I had a studio apartment on the fourth (top) floor. It was gorgeous. It was beautifully decorated throughout. The kitchen was spacious and very modern and just about every kitchen appliance and utensil you could ever want. The bathroom was compact but modern... More

Well located in a quiet location but only a 5 minute walk from the Royal Mile. Very well equipped and the decor is modern. The apartments are clean and the beds are comfortable.

We stayed in the Drummond Street apartment, despite our print-out stating West Nicolson Street. It said further down (on Page 2) "please note the apartment is in Drummond Street", but I'm still not sure why the other address is stated, what's the point? So a bad start, we had to take our suitcases down the busy main road and around... More

I stayed for one night in Apartment 8 on the third floor of the block on West Nicolson Street with my partner and friend for my birthday. We booked because the price was excellent for a 2-bed apartment and I'd definitely stay again at this price (£79 for a Sunday night). Check-in was reasonably straightforward.
