Overall, excellent. Central location, good value for money and exceptionally helpful staff. Within walking distance of everything we needed, including train station ad regular bus service to the airport. in the heat of the city! Looking forward to staying again soon

Super clean, well appointed, stylish apartment right on the royal mile. StayEdinburgh has apartments in multiple places on the Mile, and ours (2 bed) was just a block from the castle. Beds extremely comfortable, and no problems with any of the apartment features. Nice mounted flat-screen (if you care), and fairly new appliances. Had one cleaning issue (towels from previous renters still in the bathroom) but lots of apologies from the front office. However, other than this, the apartment was spotless. Had lots of supplies (soaps, shampoo, cleaning products, washer detergent, etc.) - a nice touch. Could not have been more pleased with our choice of using this company.

Only downside was the apartment was on the fourth floor without lift with a circular stair, so if you have any mobility issues make the office aware. Note this is not unusual with any apartment in Edinburgh.

Which leaves me to the staff - some of the nicest people I have ever dealt with! Harvey checked us in, and was very helpful with suggestions. They helped us carry the bags up to the apartment, and when they saw we struggled with the bags, also came back to help us carry the bags down even tho we were technically checked out. These folks were awesome.

All in all, would not hesitate to give these folks the highest marks - highly recommended.

Lovely 2 bedroomed apartment. Was only £115 for Sunday night for 4 of us. Apartment is on the Royal Mile itself, next door to the Crest of Edinburgh tourist shop / The Filling Station restaurant. Apartment was beautifully decorated, spacious and very warm. Staff friendly. Building very secure (pin code entry at street level then 2 security card swipe entry doors). Will definitely be back.

We stayed for two nights with our two teenagers. The service from the team was exemplary. We received a courtesy call to tell us our apartment was ready for us, whilst we were en route. Harvey walked us from the office on high street to the apartment in Lawnmarket. Harvey was very helpful showing us where our chosen attractions were on a map. The apartments location was perfect for walking into the city. We parked the car and left it for three days and went everywhere on foot!
The kitchen was short of nothing that one might need including tea towels and washing up liquid. The bathroom had complimentary shampoo and shower gel - which was useful as we had forgotten ours!
As previously mentioned a few wee things could do with smartening up but it was spacious, clean,well equipped and perfectly situated. Would be happy to return.

The apartment was right on the Royal Mile, perfect for exploring Edinburgh. The rooms had everything we needed, although there were a few things that could be tidied up, like the broken bath panel and a patch of paintwork.

Other than that I cannot fault the apartment, and the service from the company was excellent - the room was ready early for us, and we were offered help with our bags.

The only thing to note is, like previous reviews, it's worth planning ahead if travelling with young children as our apartment was up a tight, spiral staircase. We have a 5-month old baby and decided to leave the pushchair in the car after reading other reviews, and we were glad we did.

I stayed for a couple of days while I visited a friend and took in the sights. The administration of my booking and stay was very smooth and the meet and greet when I arrived was also efficient. The apartment was warm (it was cold outside), comfy and well equipped, particularly the kitchen. I appreciated the on-site broadband so that I could stay in touch with folks and do some browsing for things to see and do in town.

The location of the apartment was excellent, straight out of the door onto the Royal Mile and close to so many things to see and do. Also convenient for Waverley Station too. I would highly recommend these apartments as a great way to stay in the heart of the old town, while enjoying all of the mod cons.
