“Smart well organised central apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2009

Stayed for the Heineken Cup Final with my group and had a fantastic time - from arrival to departure all went well and the apartments are very high quality.

The cafe bar below had great breakfasts as well!!

Organised a rugby tour to Edinburgh earlier this year (May 2008) and had a brilliant experience.

Finding accommodation that can cater for 24 demanding players on a ‘vets’ tour is not the easiest experience. However, after a little searching came across these apartments. Initially never considered apartments for the simply reason of accommodating 24 people in the same location. We were able to book all 4 apartments which were all accessed through the same main door and stair, which in itself was very grand! All 4 apartments were spacious, lots of light, well appointed and fully furnished, exceeding our expectations.

On arrival, staff were there waiting to handover the keys and inform us of the area, they were very friendly and helpful. The apartments provided everyone space to spread out and relax. With the common access it allowed others to drift around and catch up. The beds were comfortable and the kitchens and bathrooms were very clean and showers hot. Each apartment had its own lounge, kitchen and dining area - it was terrific.

The location of the apartments was great - in a very nice area central to cafes, pubs, shops and restaurants. The walk into the old town is about a mile along a road well populated with every imaginable service you could ever need. The area provides large parks, heritage and a large swimming pool.

The most interesting reaction regarding the apartments was that many of the group requested contact details to return with friends and families, think that said it all!

I've stayed at these apartments a number of times in the last 12 months. The apartments have a clean fresh, interior with a large living area and decent sized bedrooms.

All manner of eating places are within a short walking distance and if you don't want to go out, there's a large kitchen area

I think these apartments are great value for money, situated as they are within easy reach of all parts of the city and I'll happily stay again when I'm next in Edinburgh.

We traveled as a mixed group of adults and children and loved the whole experience. The flexibility of the rooms meant that the sleeping accommodation was bespoke to us which was a real plus and helped to enhance the feeling of getting a 4* service whilst paying value prices.
The apartments are ideally located to explore the city centre and further afield on foot or public transport. But if you want to stay close to your accommodation with your family you have a swimming pool and great children's play area within 3 minutes walk as well as the expanse of Holyrood Park to explore.

I've recommended the apartments to friends and families since as a great way to add to their Edinburgh experience.
