“Fringe 2010-2011-2012 and More Stay Here!!!!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is the third time we have stayed in the apartments during the fringe festival and they cannot be faulted, location is ideal for all things fringe a walk away from everything. Jill is very helpful prior to arrival and will try to accommodate all wishes. Her new arrangement with the coffee shop next door to the apartment means there are no expensive storage costs for left luggage at the train station which if you arrive prior to check in time and leave well after check out time like we do then it is ideal. Don't ever book anywhere to stay :-)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Edinburgh. The apartment was clean and cozy and super central to everything -- less than spitting distance to the Royal Mile and directly behind the Writer's Museum. The apartment is small, but workable. We would definitely stay there again.

The apartment was easy to book and Jill even sent us information prior to our trip. Great communication!

Also, Mike, the bartender at The Wash, (bar directly below the apartment) was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout our stay. Besides being unusually friendly, he let us keep our bags in a safe location while the apartment was being cleaned (we arrived a bit early), and even let us use his printer the day we departed. Great experience overall.

Stayed here on our first trip to the Fringe - it could not have been better placed. Walked everywhere, was able to pop back for a short power nap and picnic! Would definitely stay again mainly due to the location and value for money.

I stayed here for the entire 2012 Fringe and it was ideal. The central location and terrific views made this location absolutely perfect for exploring and experiencing Edinburgh. The managers were responsive and friendly throughout the trip. I look forward to staying here again.

This apartment has everything for your visit to Edinburgh if you plan on seeing the sites all day as we did. Nothing fancy, but a clean room with a kitchen and bath. The apartment is centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere--no need to rent a car or hire a taxi. Having spent 8 days traveling Scotland, we can attest that the price was great too.

We stayed at Capital View Apts. for 3 days and it was wonderful. So convenient to all the attractions in Edinburgh. It was a little cool at night and the heat in the apartment worked perfectly. We did a couple of loads of laundry while we were there and the newer washer and dryer were great. A little noisy a night with the pub below that might bother some, so bring your earplugs. Otherwise, I highly recommend these apartments if you are staying in Edinburgh. I will stay again on my next visit.

Stayed for 9 nights in this studio with 3 other people, the views are spectacular and the space is tight but very cozy when you're staying with people you're familiar with! There are 2 accesses to the building one leads directly to the royal mile and the other goes in the direction of princes street which is very convenient! Great location.. The only difficulty we had was with the laundry most of the time the machines were either out of order or being used by other residents, other than that it was a wonderful experience..
