Recently stayed two nights at Capital View apartments. The service relating to bookings and communcation was excellent. The apartment is conveniently situated right in town with a five minute walk from Waverley Railway Station and close to everything. The apartment itself was very modern and spacious, if a touch noisy at night but should expect that for the convenience of being right in the centre of everything. For the price it is a great find.

This accommodation has a great location, amazing views over the city, really nice and clean rooms and a great bed with a fluffy comforter. Unfortunately, this place also has sound proofing of a tent.

We stayed in an 8th floor apartment over the Halloween weekend. We woke up several times during the night to the shouting of partying people and the sounds of emergency vehicles.

Can't recommend this to very light sleepers or families with children, but if you can keep up with the other party animals until three in the morning, you'll have no problem at all and this is the place for you.

We stayed 3 nights, on our first visit to the city. The apartment itself was lovely, warm and comfortable, as described in previous reviews. The bed was very comfortable. Decor was light and fresh. Bathroom with shower was all new, and the compact kitchen was very functional--there was even a dishwasher. We did not meet the owners, but all communications with them from start to finish were prompt and extremely helpful. The views across the city were amazing, and the location was even more amazing. It could not be more central, both to the Royal Mile and to museums and shopping. We walked everywhere. The area felt very safe day and night. We are already making plans to return.

We stayed for 3 nights in Apartment B. The apartment could not have been more central being only minutes from the Royal Mile, the railway station and main shopping centre. Our host Jill was outstanding in her support to make our visit to Edinburgh and Scotland a highlight. Always prompt and helpful. The apartment was clean, well equipped and great value. In summary, Location, Location, Location!!
