We stayed - 2 adults and 2 teens in the Penthouse of this apartHotel for 3 nights.
As previous reviewers have mentioned, it's at the bottom of the Royal Mile (Holyrood Palace end), but it is tucked away amidst office buildings so really no picturesque outlook. A few glimpses of Arthur's seat out of the window. Very handy Starbucks, mini Tesco and Pizza Express within a minutes walk.
Believe all you read about the noisy plumbing/extractor fan situation. Add to that doors which are all designed to close firmly behind you. I don't really know what they could do about any of this though so not worth complaining about and after a few days it does seem less obvious.
Despite this it still gets a well-deserved 5 stars from us.
Spacious, spotlessly clean, well-thought out kitchen and a very relaxing lounge area. We all loved getting ready for a days sightseeing and returning in the late afternoon/evening to relax and watch a DVD with a bite to eat from the kitchen. Two double bedrooms, one ensuite and the sofa in the lounge could sleep another 2. Both bedrooms had TVs. Rooms serviced every day and done very thoroughly.
Very handy for sightseeing, in under a minute we were on the Royal Mile and could hail one of the Hop-on-Hop Off buses.
Parked the car in their basement car park - £10 a day. Was thankful it was my husband who was parking.....quite a bit of squeezing and reversing but he thought it was no trouble at all.
All in all we all enjoyed our Easter stay. Paid £80 a night through Booking.com and would return again with no hesitation.
