“Beautiful Apartments”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is my second time staying at this apartment complex. The location is amazing, sea views!!!

The apartments are modern and clean. Safe underground parking.

The only issue is there was one shower in the en-suite and the bathroom only consisted of a bath. The first time I stayed there were two showers which is a way better plan.

Bus stop is across the road and only 12mins to the city centre.

Also, if you book last minute it is cheaper.

A great place to stay with great views and easy travel into the city centre. Close to Britania and Ocean Terminal. The apartments are in a nice quite area but with in walking distance to lots of great eating places, there is a bus stop very close which makes it easy to

I have stayed in these apartments previously and delighted to find the standards are being well maintained. Very clean and well presented accommodation. Very comfortable beds - peaceful & quiet - a great night's sleep and relaxiing (no traffic noise here!). Lounge sofas not comfortable but other than this everything else was fine.
Constantly changing views over the River Forth give added appeal to the location - much better than staying in a stuffy city hotel.
Parking outside the apartment (in the marked bays), with the option of secure underground parking ((too much a hassle for me).
Planning my next trip...

Booked over phone direct and received excellent service, we asked for a higher appt with sea view.
We arrived earlier than the 2pm check in but were able to leave our car outside no problem.
The appt was on the 7th floor with amazing views over the Forth and to Leith harbour and docks.We were lucky to witness two stunning sunsets and sunrises.
The appt itself was spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable.
The bed was 2 singles zipped together which made a very large one,excellent when your partner snores! There was also another bedroom with 2 singles. The ensuite had a fantastic walk in power shower, the only issue could be that the hot water comes from a tank ,therefore if a few people were having showers it could soon run cold. Also a towel rail would be a good idea as there was nowhere to hang damp towels.Heating was easily controllable.
There was a separate bathroom with a shower over the bath also.
The kitchen/dining area had all you could need, there is a 24hr Asda a five minute walk away which was handy. The lounge area had two comfy leather sofas, a glass coffee table and a flatscreen tv with dvd player.
There was no noise disturbance of any kind,it was very quiet and peaceful so we had two excellent sleeps!
We got the no.10 bus up to Princes St twice, the stop is just outside and the service runs very regularly. You need the correct change, it was £1.40 single or £3.50 for a dayticket.
We walked up to the Water of Leith where there are lots of fab restaurants, also along to Ocean Terminal shopping mall.
Checkout was 10am but we were able again to leave the car and spend another day in the centre of Edinburgh.
All in all we had a great break, we would certainly stay again as apartments are so much better than a hotel room, much more space,comfort and privacy.

Room Tip: a higher floor gives fantastic views and its well worth paying the extra for a a guaranteed sea view...

What a great apartment! Our two bedroom, two bathroom apartment was amazing, and had a living room, kitchen with dining area and washer and dryer combo! While the location is a little ways out of the city, it is right on the bus line, a short walk to Asda, and right on the water with fantastic views. It was amazing to sit in the living room and just take in the view. The whole apartment was very well appointed with anything you might need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay- the only drawback is we wished we could have had a longer stay!

Booked the apartment as was visiting the city for a wild night out. Went to check in but my details weren't on the check in sheet. This was resolved very quickly and for the mix up was offered a late check out at noon rather than 10am. Which ofcourse I took up on happily esp after the night we had.

The apartment was very clean and warm ideal on a cold winters night. Looking to return and stay again and in the process off arranging another night out!

Have stayed in many hotels but this is the way forward. Not only do you have a clean bedroom(s) but also a living room and kitchen making the experience a lot better and more value.

After all previous hassle with the city suites booking with booking.com we finaly got here in the end terribly overpriced £660 2nights over new year plus £40qid extra for a blanket for 5th person an £30 more for 12.15pm later checkout on the 2nd. On arrival staff were worse than awfull as we explained situation they were just not interested in any shape or form an we only just got checked in due to getting in touch with booking.com. The place itself wizny to bad nice views ect good enough rooms but security system to get in an out is just not useable an belongs at a jail also sink was almost dangerously bad. The main thing above all is the fact 5days before we arrived they took a £100 pre-authorisation payment from my bank card which booking.com neglect to tell you about and now 6days later iam still waiting for my refund even after countless emails to the hot-el apartments there excuse is that it may take longer due to xmas period funny then they got it 5days earlier no problem so this looks like this is going to be another stressful farce to get my money back which given the money we forked out this just shouldnt happen.

Room Tip: Go for sea view over firth of forth.
