“The best place to stay in Edinburgh”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

I frequently have to go to Edinburgh because of my job and I have now stayed in the Capital View Apartments for around six weeks over the last 6 months. The main reason for why I keep coming back is that the beds are really comfortable, the view is amazing, the interior is pristine and the apartment is light and tasteful. The location is really good, it is in a good neighbourhood and I feel safe when I am staying there alone. There has never been any loud music or other things going on that have affected my sleep. Great value for money.
Jill is really friendly and helpful which is a bonus.

The view and location was great.. When we discovered that the Ladies Close Stairs took us to the Royal Mile and the Hop On Hop Off. The Wash Bar personnel were awesome and very helpful in getting the logistics. The apartment was clean and the free laundromat was great. The apartment could use a few more cooking utensils, like a spatula, baking sheets and a better oven mitten. The Livingstons were great host and we would stay there again if in Edinburgh.

We were guests of Jill and her husband in this apartment several times, and we were always like at home, greeted with kindness and disposability (and even with discounted prices when we got stuck because of the volcano!!). Highly recommended for its location in the city old town ( TOP FLOOR and so absolutely NO NOISE even on Saturday night), and the wonderful view!

Terrific place that was reasonably priced (for Edinburgh) given its location. I slept on the chair-futon, which was perfectly comfortable, and the youngsters I was traveling with took the beds. It's big enough for three people, though probably not four. Absolutely terrific shower & a great way to warm up after some cold, windy walks on the Royal Mile. :)

Note: it's a PERFECTly central location, but if you're not a city-dwelling type, you may find it a bit noisy. I had no trouble sleeping whatsoever but my cousins, who live in the suburbs, were woken up one of the nights by some revelers below.

This apartment is in a great location and is clean and modern. Provided a perfect base to explore the old town and easy access to the rail and buses for further afield. I really enjoyed coming 'home' each night to this space and the views are fabulous. The owners were very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Happy to recommend highly.
