“Great Location, Very Nice Appartment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The owner greeted us upon arrival and showed us the apartment, which was nice and spacious. There were only three of us in a 6 bed, but even with 6 it would have been fine. Had everything you needed inc cooker, pots, pans, washing machine, dish washer etc.

Very quiet as it is located off the main road.

Close to amenities. The walk to the Grass Market only took 10 minutes which was great.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We were shown around the apartment as soon as we arrived and were amazed at what we got via Booking.com...great stuff. apartment clean and very spacious with everything you could possible need supplied. Shops nearby and castle within walking distance, as well as everything else. Hop on/off bus is a great idea to get an idea on places to visit (channel 2 was a scream). Only issue we had was the dryer didnt seem to work properly but advised owner of this. Car secure in underground carpark and recommend you keep it there and either walk or bus everywhere as so much easier. BTW food at the Deacon Brodie was great!

Room Tip: We got a great bargain on the penthouse via booking.com. Brilliant stuff.

Six of us stayed here for a long weekend and it was just what we needed (someone to lay our heads) it had all the amenities 2 bathrooms with towels supplied, washing machine, dishwasher etc. The beds were comfortable however there was a dip in the bed in the double room. There is a tesco and boots around the corner so we had no problem getting ourselves toiletries or food. Its in good walking distance from the grass market it took us about 10 mins to walk it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights in November and were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The owner who let us in was very helpful and friendly. The area is nice, with lots of restaurants nearby, a supermarket, plenty of buses and is a reasonable walk into the city centre. The apartment itself was very large and very comfortable. The only critique i have is that the mattress on the queen bed is terrible, it needs replacing. The wifi is not fantastic, but it works.
Would stay here again, and definitely recommend. We loved it, definitely the best accommodation we've stayed in on our trip so far.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We booked the Pearl Apartments in Lochrin Place Edinburgh through Booking.com at £195 for 2 nights.

Car park is located below the apartments in underground car park - secured with remote locking device.

Lifts take you to the apartments.

Lovely and modern inside and spotlessly clean throughout.

Beds very comfortable, we had a 2 bedroom apartment which had a double and twin room which had 2 futon style fold down chair beds (we did not need to use them so cannot comment upon their comfort but twins were comfortable with modern spotlessly clean bedding).

Livingroom was large with wooden flooring, open plan with modern fully equipped spotlessly clean kitchen which had all of the essentials including dishwasher tablets, scourer, washing liquid, tea coffee etc...

Only negatives were that the livingroom was on spring type system which pulled it shut quite quickly which was a concern with us having 2 kids aged 4 and 3 plus the slamming noise was annoying to us; hopefully not the neighbours. There was a door stop but a suggestion would be to remove spring. The other minor detail was that the tv was an old style tv (not modern plasma) but hey I'm being picky here and we were not there to watch tv.

Location is excellent, 10 mins walk from Grassmarket, 15 to princess St and all the attractions.

Quite wee street at night time so a sound nights sleep was had by all - bedrooms were to rear overlooking the communal modern gardens.

Thoroughly recommend these apartments.

We have stayed in these apartments many times as convenient for the city and have secure underground parking. Easy walk or bus ride to Princes St, Castle, Grass Market and restaurants. Sadly the apartments are shabbier with each visit. A little paint and fresh carpets would make all the difference. Having said that they are clean and fairly well equipped. No oven mitts or tea towels. Table lamp in the lounge would be good. Don't rely on internet connection. Lift to all floors.The family who own the apartments are helpful and friendly.
If you are thinking of a carry out fish supper one evening DO NOT go to the Concorde Fish Bar on Home St (opp. Lochrin Place) as it is dreadful and the staff grumpy.
We will stay again.

Room Tip: Choose Lochrin Luxury apartments.
