Apartment on first floor was spacious and nicely decorated, clean and quiet. Close walking distance to Royal Mile and about 20 minutes to city centre. Buses run right past front door. A little maintenance is needed ie better lighting in kitchen, kitchen tap was loose, utility cupboard door scrapped on floor. The boiler switched itself off but was easily reset... More

The apartment are clean, spacious and well equipped (in particular the kitchen) . It's close to the city center, just 15-20 minute walk. There are a lot of restaurants, shops, pubs close by. I can definitely recommend it.

It's close to the city center, only 15 min walk or 5 min on a bus. There is a direct bus connection to Edinburgh Zoo, Royal Mile etc. Plenty of good pubs and restaurants close by. Very pleasant and reliable staff. Highly recommended!

We found a spacious and bright apartment, 20 min walking from the center.Toilets and the kitchen were clean, beds warm and comfortable.Towels, shampoos, kitchen equipment were all provided. Free-super-fast wifi always available. Markets and pubs are just around the corner, so we could prepare cheap meals at home and save money to spend tasting scotch whisky at the local pubs.... More

This was our second stay at this address and I can thoroughly recommend it. The apartments are all well equipped, clean and spacious. The walk into the centre is easy and level, taking about 15/20 minutes with plenty to look at on the way. Fringe venues are very accessible. A great stay.

We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Good location and good value especially as we stayed during the fringe festival, we would recommend.

Stayed here for two nights prior to my Wedding and was very disappointed as there is nothing superior about these apartments, certainly not for £130 per night. Amused that one review says excellent parking as there is no parking at all before 5.30 for residents without a permit which is a nightmare when you have a Wedding dress, 4 bridesmaid... More

Had a fab time, apartment central enough to be able to walk into town, Bar next door Reverie was excellent and great food and service. Buses just outside and taxi back from town at about 1pm was only £6.50 so very reasonable. Only complaint was bed was very squeaky when you rolled over so maybe have a look at that... More

The apartments are about a 20 minute walk from the city centre with all the shops, bars etc and 5 minutes from Arthur's Seat (definitely worth a climb). They're efficiently managed, clean, functional and very nicely furnished inside. We had a little patio area which was lovely - it's great to have somewhere nice to hang out if you don't... More
