This is the first review I have ever felt I should write,to let other people know about these apartments in Edinburgh. They are marketed as Luxury apartments 375 high street, Royal mile, Edinburgh. That is in fact the office address where you go to a small room to collect the keys for the apartments and leave £50 deposit for key... More

From the moment we arrived could tell it would be a lovely stay. Due to arriving early the 2 apartments weren't ready but we were able to leave our bags in reception which helped rather than having to lug them around. Apartments were very spacious and modern. Everything was clean and tidy and very comfy beds. Apartments are easy to... More

It worked fine for our use, which was a pied a terre for the fringe festival. The place is 4 star, so I don't expect it to be top end. For our purpose, it suited us fine, beds were comfy, bathrooms were good, kitchen was very useable. Location superb. I would rate it 5 but it's missing the little things... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment on Advocates Close, about 10 steps off the Royal Mile opposite St. Giles' Cathedral. It was an amazing location right in the middle of everything. It's less than a 10 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and about a 20 minute walk to the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the other end. The apartment was much... More

Situated right opposite St Giles Cathedral, it could not have occupied a more central location on Royal Mile. Parking can be a bit of a hassle if you are driving but loading and unloading are not a problem right in front of the entrance. You have to park either at the Blackfriars Street Carpark, which is closer but more expensive,... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
