We visited Edinburgh for the first time, staying in James Square flat 1 for three nights. We found the accommodation very comfortable, clean and well equipped. We were later arriving that planned but helped to access the building by a helpful member of staff. The building had a secure car park and being close to the city centre we were...

There were seven of us staying two nights in this lovely apartment. We found the place clean, comfortable and spacious. We were pleased with the home comforts which included lots of soft towels, amazing warm duvets and lots of kitchen crockery and bits. We enjoyed a take away on the first night and found the open plan lounge/kitchen area an...

We felt very secure in this apartment. It was very comfortable and the children in our group really enjoyed the pool as did the adults. We had parking for two cars which was very helpful. Audrey was excellent in explaining the entry system. The apartment was well equipped but it would be useful to have instructions for the washing machine...

Myself and a group of friends stayed here as part of a hen weekend. The apartments were both clean and beds very comfortable. The only thing that proved problematic was gaining access to the building itself! The phone numbers given did not answer when phoned (multiple times) it was just as well it was fine enough weather to stand outside...

Great apartment in an excellent location in Edinburgh, near Haymarket Station. I would recommend James Square for up to 6 people to stay. One remark would be that it was slightly complicated getting in and out of the building and with the car, but on the whole, great!

We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Fredericka and Agnes were great in getting in contact before our stay. Their associate Audrey made us very welcome and showed us up to the apartment. It is very well equipped, comfortable and feels spacious. There were 6 of us, so two used the sofa bed. I think it is excellent value...

We've just returned from a two week vacation from Edinburgh. The city is absolutely fabulous! 51/16 James Square not so fabulous. I'm not going to make a list of our problems,I'll just mention the top complaints. The door bell didn't work.When family visiting us in Edinburgh came to the building they stood outside ringing the door to our apartment at...

Thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry that the apartment was not to your liking. To address your comments: 1. I have arranged for someone to investigate the doorbell, as it was working last week with no problem. 2. I will also arrange now for the washing machine to be replaced by a washer-dryer. Historically we have always had...

My partner and I both love Edinburgh and wanted a few days away to enjoy the city. We decided we wanted to stay somewhere more like a home rather than your regular hotel or B&B and after much searching found Edinburgh at Home! We booked our stay through Booking.com and were happy with the regular email contact and updates from...

Went here on the late bank holiday weekend in May. There were 8 of us staying and we were in apartment 25. We got a deal that worked out at £59 per person between the 8 of us, and I have to say for 2 nights in Edinburgh on a bank holiday weekend so close to the centre it was...
