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 really enjoyed our stay. We got the airlink in from the airport which is only £7 return to Waverly Bridge. You could walk from Waverly bridge... More

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. The company have their offices... More

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.
