Stayed here for 4 weeks prior to getting a flat in Edinburgh.
We stayed in the studio and one bedroom apartments. They are ideally located in Central Edinburgh and have a Tesco within walking distance. There are a few bars, restaurants, Cinema, Bowling all within walking distance.
Apartments are clean and modern. Plenty of space and free wifi is an added bonus. Everything you need whether it's a one night stay or longer.
They can be noisier at the weekends due to hen/stag weekends etc but we were never bothered by the noise.

Staff on reception are extremely friendly and helpful.

We would definitely stay again if we needed to and have recommended these apartments to a few of our friends.

Room Tip: Higher up to avoid the noise from the street. Although even on the ground floor we weren't bothered by the noise.

The apartments were very well cleaned & maintained. Staff were very helpfull. good central location, would def use these again. The only thing we did have a problem with was the lack of hot water. only enough for one shower then we had to used the kettle for a bath as there was 2 adults and one child, so not great on that point but everything else was great.

Room Tip: we had ground floor but next time we will ask for first floor as they had balconies.

Booked 3 rooms for 11 people for a stag party, when we arrived we were told we had been up graded free of charge to two townhouses, these were even further out of town and made it more difficult to get around. When we arrived we where also told, for the first time that we would have to pay £50 per head security fee which we could get back at the end, we were told we could not split the transaction over multiple cards and had to be done in one transaction, wiping out all funds I had for the trip. When we complained about it the receptionist said "it's tough, if you want to stay you have to pay it"
As I said before this was the first time we were told about it other wise we would have made arrangements to club together to cover it or most likely gone else where
When we arrived at the upgraded townhouses there was holes in the walls as black marks all over them
Terrible accommodation and service, I would not recommend to my worst enemy

I stayed at the Staycity serviced apartments for around 7 weeks. I had come to Edinburgh on a business trip which got extended. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The Manager Lucy and the staff at reception was very good and helpful. Jaime (I think he is also a manager) was also very helpful.
There are different kinds of rooms. From a single room with bed and kitchenette to two rooms with a separate bed room and living room with kitchenette. Generally for one person they would try to provide the single room.
Room has all amenities including iron/ironing board, washing machine, dish washer, hotplate, oven, microwave, electric kettle and toaster. There is sufficient cutlery for two to four people at max. If you need anything specific and it is missing in your room then the staff would provide it.
The room cleaning happens once a week so it is important to maintain cleanliness.
I got the opportunity to stay in the two room set, which was good for me as I was there for a long time. The bedroom is small with very limited storage space. The living room with kitchenette was spacious. It was furnished with a 4 people dining table, a coffee table and a big three seat sofa and a single sofa. There was a wall mounted flat screen TV with a DVD player. The rooms were heated and a couple of times when I had issues they were promptly addressed.
The bathroom was also ok - not very small and not very big. Enough for one person to be comfortable.
Location is very good as it is near to the city center and all the tourist spots. For me, my office was also near by so it was a double whammy!
For a short stay it is definitely a good place though it may come out to be a little pricey. For longer stay one should try to get a good deal and definitely get the two room set.

Room Tip: Do not opt for ground floor rooms as you would be constantly disturbed by people movement. If you have a specific need better to call it out and see if that can be met by the staff.

The location of the apartment is not overly attractive, but once inside the unit is well equiped, large, secure, clean & quiet. Buses are nearby & a 10 minute walk takes you to the main centre of Edinburgh. Good value for money.
