Clean and modern but compact and mediocre. The location is relatively close to downtown Edinburgh but still a bit of a walk in and out.There is a bus on the main road but you are probably fast walking. There is a Tesco Express close by to stock up on a few things and other stores, bars and restaurants on the way into town. Ours was a 'sleeps 6' apartment but it was cozy for 3 people. The bedroom doors barely opened due to the double beds as was the case for the closet. The dining table had to be kept by the wall and if needed for 6 would mean stowing the coffee table somewhere else. Same for using the sofa bed - the coffee table would have to be put else where its just that there was no where else really to put it. The shower was also badly designed as the half glass wall allowed lots of water onto the floor. Electricity did not work unless the door key was inserted in a key pas and so no way to charge items when out for the day. Reception will let you back into the building and your buddies can let you back into the apartment so no need to leave everyone in the dark if you have to go to reception to get more than the one roll of toilet paper provided - which I had to do and so sorry to my travel buddies for not knowing and leaving you in the dark.
