Nice apartments in the west end, lovely quiet street. Comfy beds and decent living rooms, kitchens well spec’d but nowhere near enough utensils or just general kitchen items and no washer / dryer. For the money these should be provided, so only 4 stars.

My wife and I had a last-minute opportunity to visit Edinburgh, and the only hotel of which we were aware was the Balmoral. While I'm sure the Balmoral is an outstanding hotel, we rarely stay in the "heart of the action," or care to deal...More

We really enjoyed our stay in this very spacious, nicely furnished apartment, which is located in a nice, fairly central part of Edinburgh. We could walk to the center and to some local shops and restaurants. Our apartment was quiet, and service was excellent.

This property is an excellent place to stay in Edinburgh. It’s convenient, the rooms are large, the concierge are responsive and amenities are excellent. There’s a kitchen and rooms are larger than most hotels. Feels like a home away from home. Will come stay here...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
