Trying to find good accommodation for three and still remain in a budget isn't always easy, that is why we opted for a serviced apartment. What was my wife my teenage daughter and myself ended up being four with a niece joining us. Still managed to fit everyone into the studio apartment, though a little tight.
As we were backpacking around the UK being able to wash our clothes was important, to our shock our studio apartment was one of the very few with no clothes washer. Went to reception to ask about the closest laundromat we were given the key to an apartment that was out of use so we could use the washing machine in that apartment. The staff were excellent going well out of there way to help us.
The apartment was clean comfortable and in a great location. Only a 10 minute walk from Haymarket station and about 25 minute walk from Edinburgh Castle. TESCO just around the corner if you needed anything as well as a great selection of cafés and restaurants.
We had a few hours between checkout and catching our train. Though the reception does not have a luggage storage room they do provide large lockers for £3.
If you are after somewhere to stay in Edinburgh I highly recommend these apartments.More
