These are self-catered apartments functioning as hotels by providing travellers with short-term accommodation. Check-in at the Waterfront Cafe and you will be given keys to one of the blocks of apartments dotted around the Waterfront Harbour neighbourhood. Parking is free. The Room: Imagine a clean, modern two bedroom apartment - a hallway with bathroom, two bedrooms with one en-suite bathroom,...

Ii have just spent the last 3 nights at the Hot-el-apartments near Leith Docks, and what an enjoyable experience it was! We were a group of 7 adults travelling with our elderly parents on a reminiscent tour of Edinburgh, and it turned out that this apartment was the highlight of our trip. The lift to our original apartment was out...

We spent 14 days in Scotland with our 2 children. This was the first place we stayed. It was a very nice, large 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms and a central living/dining/kitchen area. Very nice spacious flat. Free parking, free wifi. Lovely view of the harbor and the cruise ships. It was very close to ASDA - the British...

We had reason to stay at these apartments this past weekend and can't speak highly enough about them. Location wise they are perfect, a ten minute drive into centre of Edinburgh and so peaceful. there is a supermarket within walking distance. Ask for a room on a high level as the views are stunning. We were in a ground floor...

For the money this was good value self-catering accomodation. I was disappointed that there was no wi-fi in the apartment and though the overall apartment was clean the washing machine still had some laundry and detergent from the prior occupants.

From our Apartment we had a fantastic view of the Cruise ships coming in to dock, it was situated a little bit out of the main centre but there was a bus 2 minutes walk around the corner that took you into the City Centre with very helpful and informative Drivers.
