“Holyrood aparthotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

I stayed 4 nights in May 2013. I enjoyed the stay in Edinburgh very much.
The location is a little off the Royal mile, so the first day I had difficulties to find this hotel.
I had to make several phone call to get some information about the location but the old, male staff was not very helpful.
You have to find the small 'close' (i forgot the name) which is just next to Starbucks coffee shop,
just 1 minute walk will lead u to this cosy and comfortable hotel.

If you like to have an apartment rather than a hotel room, then this will be a great choice for the city of Edinburgh. It is just off the Royal Mile, and within a 10 min walk from Waverley Station and 20 mins up the hill to the castle. The location may be tricky for some to find, however check it out on the map before travelling and then you shouldn't have too much trouble. We had the Penthouse 2 bedroom apartment, which is big enough for 4 people, and makes for a great hangout with a fully fitted kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a large lounge and dinning area. I recommend it for families, friends on holiday, or for a couple looking for somewhere nice to chill out.

Room Tip: It was my birthday, so in the booking I asked for something nice... that (I cannot guarantee) meant...

Stayed at the Aparthotel for two nights. Lucky enough to be upgraded to a top floor apartment which was extremely well appointed, spotlessly clean and light. Ideal for the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile. Staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Would imagine it would make an ideal base for the August Edinburgh Festival. Any amount of good restaurants within walking distance.

Room Tip: Probably best to avoid any ground floor apartment facing directly onto the street and level with it.

Modern well equipped apartments in good location for Royal Mile and Old Town. Comfortable beds and well appointed en suite and bathroom. Two bed apartment is spacious and was clean and well maintained. Parking is available on site at an extra charge although overnight street parking is easy to find nearby as long as you are away before 8.30am. Tesco Metro nearby with all the basics.

This aparthotel has almost every feature one could desire. It has too kitchen facilities and amenities and is clean, tidy and has helpful, friendly staff. One downside is if you have never been before you may struggle to find it down what seems like a back alleyway. However once found, it is not far from Waverley station. At a £50 last minute deal this was fantastic value for money

This apartment was booked as a last minute offer but still paid more than we normally would for a 2 night stay, and while the staff were helpful and the location excellent, the room was disappointing and differed substantially from the photos in the advert. The room was "L" shaped and contained the bedroom with a sofa, small table and a kitchen at the bottom of the "L". We found the room hot and stuffy even with the windows open. Very nice separate bathroom, but the plumbing could be noisy, although definitely not as noisy as the garbage lorry which seemed to spend several hours in the vicinity early on the Monday morning.
Am sure there will be better apartments in what was a very nice building but cant say we were impressed with ours and will not be rushing back.

Arrived for a long weekend with 2 tired children in tow, walked from Waverley station with luggage, and our flat was just what we needed. Two comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sitting room & small kitchen. The receptionist was excellent, giving us tips for good family restaurants, the flat was comfy and clean, and of course the location is wonderful. We walked everywhere: up to the castle, over to Calton Hill, across the road to Dynamic Earth. The only downside (and its very small), is that its clearly a popular place and could do with a lick of paint here and there. Otherwise, we could not fault it at all.
