Stayed in the Museum Apartment in the beginning of April 2009. And what can I say - the apartment itself is definitely a four-star. It is well-furnished, and the location is splendid. Just off the Royal Mile, opposite the Greyfryar's Bobby pub (and the grave of the most faithful dog) in a quiet spot. BUT, there were big maintenance problems when we were there. First, the elevator didn't work, and obviously hadn't for some time (according to the grafitti on the out-of-order-note) - this meant approx 50 steps up to the second floor with luggage and all. To make a long story short; we didn't have hot water for the first 24 hours and the last day, the dish-washer didn't work, the central heating worked for one afternoon and not for the other three days, there was no refill of toiletpaper, no change of towels - all this was too bad, because it could have been so good. We tried to contact the staff about the heating, hot-water and dish-washer, and they were friendly enough, without being able to help much. The dishwasher was fixed the day before we left, but then the heating was off again, and the hot water was gone... Then, it doesn't help that the apt is good, when the facilities you are promised - and have paid for - don't work.
