The apartment was very nice, tidy, clean and comfortable just like home! it located at the city centre of Edinburgh, near the shopping mall and train station, very easy to get to the famous spot. The staff was very friendly and helpful, would stay here again next time!

The apartment was great and right in the heart of Edinburgh. The staff was very nice and even helped me with my bags on the walk to the apartment. Location could not be beat, right on High Street in the middle of town. Would stay here again for sure!

Room Tip: No parking and you need to check in at a seperate location than the apartments.

we were very impressed with this property, from the apartment itself with its history, decor and everything supplied that you could possibly need, to the central location in the Old town, near to all the famous attractions and railway station (we took the train rather than car), Edinburgh is a nightmare to drive about, and there was no noticable parking nearby. we will definetely be visiting again.

Room Tip: we stayed in the one bedroom apartment wich was at the top of a three storey spiral staircase. while...

We were on a four-night study trip in Edinburgh with a group of 17 students and found these City Apartments an excellent "headquarter" for our visit. They couldn't have been more centrally located, they were very recently refurbished (with taste) and surprisingly spacious, even the rooms with four beds in them. The staff was amazing responding to all our questions and needs as promptly as possible. There's simply nothing negative to say about this...some noise from the street but ear plugs will do the job. We booked them in reduced price so the price-quality equation was incomparable.

We visited Edinburgh last weekend and stayed three nights in one of Stay Edinburgh's 1 bedroom apartments. The first thing to note was the location. The check in office at Crest of Edinburgh was only a few minutes walk from the main Waverley train station, on the Royal Mile. From there, it was again just a couple of minutes walk to the apartment in James Court. Check in was quick and easy and our bags were even carried to the apartment!

The apartment itself was excellent - very clean, nicely decorated with everything we could need on hand. It was heated by electric heaters and was always warm and cosy. Access was up three flights of spiral stairs which wasn't an issue for us, but it might be worth checking with them first if this could be an issue. The location on the Royal Mile is great for sight seeing - were we just 2 minutes from the castle.

The staff were also very friendly and helpful - they allowed us to leave our bags at the office on checkout day so we could enjoy another full day around Edinburgh.

Overall, we would highly recommend Stay Edinburgh. We really want to return to Edinburgh one day and would definitely stay there again.

We visited edinburgh for a short trip with friends and stayed in the spacious and really well equipped 4bedroom apartment. It was clean and tastefully decorated with lots of extras like spare pillows and blankets ( although we didnt need them because the apartment was very warm and cosy. Location could not have been better, a few minutes from the Castle on the Royal Mile near some lovely bars and restaurants, and just a short walk to the main shopping area. The convenience store below the apartment had all the basics -bread and milk etc. it was great value for money and we would stay again. Only slight downside it that it would not unit anyone with mobility issues or a buggy as it is up 3 flights of spiral stairs. Didn't bother us but might have if the children had been smaller.

Staff were lovely, reception was easy to find and all admin was dealt with extremely efficiently. Would definitely recommend
