“Amazing value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

We've stayed in other Staycity apartments elsewhere and this keeps up the excellent standards we're getting used to! Light, airy and very we equipped. This is far better value compared to hotels, the staff are so helpful and the position of these groups of apartments are brilliant. 2 minutes from a supermarket; 8 from the castle and 15 or so from Princes Street..... Couldn't be better. I recommend this place..... We'll be back!

Nice apartments at a good price, the only downside was the wifi, it wasnt good at all, especially as i had some work to do. But overall a lovely apartment, clean, tidy and good value for money. I would def come here again as it was near the centre and close to everything i needed.

Have stayed in stay city in Dublin so these were one of the first places we looked for when coming to Edinburgh. Place was spotlessly clean, modern and decor was good. Bathroom was plenty big enough with nice shower (no bath but we don't do baths anyway). Plenty of space for everyone to put their toiletries. Bedrooms were small with one of the wardrobe doors unable to be opened but as we were only there 2 nights it didn't matter to us. Beds were very comfy. Kitchen was modern and clean. The only problems with the apartment was the kitchen though. The oven and fridge was right behind the door. This meant that there was huge potential for damage to the door with the oven door being open (pull down oven door which was also the grill) and someone walking in. This is not the best idea when each person puts down a security deposit incase of damage. We spent the 2day's shouting through or knocking on the door before entering. A small annoyance in the grand scheme of things.
Brother stayed with girlfriend in 1bedroom apartment downstairs. They had loads of room too with no issues concerning layout.
Location was good, approx 10 mins walk from grassmarkets or greyfriars Bobby pub area. Little longer to royal mile or castle. ( we are all in our 30's with no health or mobility issues). We did get a taxi to the new side of town on the 2nd night. There's a phone at reception for taxis to make things easier. There is a large Tesco metro down the road for food/drink.
Overall if you don't mind a wee walk to get to town this place is great value for money.

the apartment we stayed in was close to haymarket train station (about 10-15 min walk). it was modern, clean and it had everything you need for longer stays: fully equiped kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer. Complimentary tea and coffee. the staff is very polite and helpful. there is a tesco only 5 min from the apartments. you can walk to grassmarket, the castle and royal mile. you can reach grassmarket in about 15 minutes and then it is another 10 min walk to the royal mile and the castle.
the only problem is that the rooms were a bit too small - besides the bed there is little room for enything else. not a really big problem. wouldn't keep us from staying there again.

Modern, clean appartments - 15 minute walk from city centre. This is excellent accommodation for people who enjoy the freedom of having a kitchen and space to spend time together. We had a 3 person apartment and I slept on the sofa which was perfectly comfortable for a short stay. The staff were very helpful

Booked these apartments having never been to Edinburgh before. Found them to be about 15-20 minute walk away from the Castle which was a nice walk. Apartments were spacious, modern, clean and really good value for money. Would definitely stay here again.
