This apartment is ideal for a few days stay in Edinburgh as it is comfortable & has everything you need locally in terms of bars, restaurants & shops etc. It is large enough for 4 people but you'd need to be good friends or a family as it is basically one large room! There is a double bed behind an... More

We were very pleasantly surprised on arrival at Merchiston Apartments Sunny and light , spotlessly clean - these apartments have been cleverly designed , with attention to detail. Quiet, leafy street with coffee shops and supermarket at end of road - a 25 min walk to Princess Street and city centre make it very convenient.

I stayed here with my husband and cousin for a few nights over the New Year's Eve holiday last year. We always heard Edinburgh had a great celebration, and everyone was right. I didn't initially want an apartment because I wanted to get my points at a hotel but this place had the best bang for the buck. If you're... More

Having read the other reviews I believe The Merchiston is the property you're looking for if your circumstances befit the nature of the property. I travelled up on the train. No parking issues. 20-30 mins walk from the Waverley. No problem if you're able bodied. Quiet residential area. Fine if you don't mind taking public transport to see " the... More

Stayed in Apt 1 in the basement. The apartment is fitted out to a high standard, clean and in a lovely area of the city, with cafe's and independent shops aplenty, and just a short walk to the city centre. I would very much recommend for a visit, unless you are here midweek with a car. The parking restrictions in... More

We had a beautiful studio apartment on the top floor. It had obviously been newly fitted and everything was pristine, with a little kitchenette and proper coffee (and cafetiere) supplied. The area was lovely as well with lots of nice places for breakfast and dinner. A couple of very minor downsides - they'd hidden the towels, which took us a... More
