Reviewed April 2, 2014

This apartment is ideal for a mini break in Edinburgh. Close to everything and very comfortable. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. We were six people and a baby. Destination Edinburgh supplied us with a travel cot and a high chair. They carried all of our luggage up to the fourth floor.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor, so not suitable for anyone who can't manage stairs.

We had Apartment No2 in 20 York Place Apartments, Edinburgh. The apartments location was superb and the apartment itself was lovely clean and spacious, however the two front rooms were so noisy during the night with the traffic, that the guests in those rooms got very little sleep.
Such a shame because with some small modifications the noise could be reduced.

Room Tip: Request an apartment that is adjacent to the road.

We loved our time at 20 York Place! It was gorgeous apartment, in a fantastic central location with stunning views and all the amenities we needed. Beds were very comfy, bathrooms modern and most important super clean! The service at time of booking and throughout arrival etc was brilliant, we will be back for sure. Edinburgh is a fabulous city and definitely worth a visit. Thank you for making it so easy for us and so enjoyable. We will definitely be recommending York Place to friends and family! Thanks again!

I stayed at 20 York Place for 2 nights with my family (5 adults)Easter 2013. We had a 3-bedroom apartment. It was spacious and comfortable. Ten minutes walking to train station and restaurants. The only disadvantage it located on the street where the city train construction is underway.

Fanatastic apartment in centre of Edinburgh . Huge clean bedrooms, and living area , we were on the top floor so quite a hike up but worth it.
Great customer service aspecially as York place was closed so we couldnt get to it by car. We were met and helped to carry luggage and shown where everything was.
Also in constant phone communication with the office about arrival etc which makes it a very personal service rather than an agent who doesnt care!
Will choose to go there again Great value .
