Three long time friends visiting for our special birthdays. We were delighted with our 4th floor suite, although we found the settee a bit uncomfortable and the rug had been removed leaving sticky tape on the floor, and two or three of the blinds were broken, this did not spoil our 3 days there. The suite and utilities were clean and the beds were clean and comfortable, service was excellent, breakfast was great and the reception staff very accommodating with information. The spa staff made it very welcome and offering champagne to celebrate our special birthdays. The locality is ideal. We all would recommend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Edinburgh.

I really liked this property. The people at the font desk went out of their way to allow us to change rooms to a smaller room with a much nicer view. We originally were given this ridiculously large 2 bedroom 2 bath suite....and for just my mother and I it was too big, plus there was no view at all. They gave us a smaller 2 bed/1 bath room on the top floor overlooking the beautiful cemetary. I couldn't have been happier with the space. The kitchen was nicely appointed, and the living room was very large. The basket provided at check-in filled with little snacks was very welcome for our breakfasts on most mornings. We elected not to use the elevator as it literally took more than 5 minutes which in a hotel with this few floors is not good. We took the stairs up all 4 floors from the main floor which was a little bit of a treck for my mother who is in her 60s. The rooftop is really lovely, and if the weather were a bit warmer we definitely would have spent more time there. The location is off the main area where most of the tourists are, but very close....just a quick couple blocks down and across the bridge and you're there. The hotel is a long treck to Holyrood with many hills....I would recommend taking a taxi. Overall I would definitely stay here again. The price is great, especially for the amount of space you get.

Room Tip: The rooms are on the higher floors have a much nicer view, especially if you request to have one ove...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights, very well furnished, comfortable and clean! All Staff were very nice and welcoming! Beautiful views from the roof! Need some slight attention on some of the furniture and bathroom. Location is perfect very central! I strongly recommend these apartments!

Six people, stayed in this very spacious, comfortable 3 bedroom apartment in Edinburgh for one night during the Festival.
The price was quite high but the apartment was large, modern and clean with a kitchen and 6 person dinning table. We used the local M&S five mins..walk.
The location also very good, about 10 mins walk from Waverley railway station, the road is busy but the room was fairly quiet.
The staff were very helpful and attended to an issue in the room straight away.
One of the bedrooms has en-suite facilities and the sitting room had a sofa bed so could easily have accommodated another one or two people. Great for groups who want to self-cater.

We stayed at Princes street suites for three days in studio n°1. Great flat, spacious, with kitchen fully equiped. Quiet. Modern and clean. View to Auld Town. 5min walk to Marks and Spencer's where you can get food. We didn't know such hotel was existing in the UK and all this for 90€ per night. Highly recommended.

Stayed in a one bedroomed apartment on 3rd floor and was pleasantly surprised by the size and comfort which were both fabulous. The apartment looked out onto the front of the property but it was really peaceful. We were particularly thrilled with the location; only a few minutes walk to Waverley Station and Waverley Bridge where all the tour buses start and finish. Lots of buses stop right outside the apartments and its within easy walking distance of Princes Street.

The roof terrace was a lovely surprise and we took some great photos over the whole of the City.

Would have given 5 stars but some of the decor is looking a bit tired and in need of refreshing.
