Stay Edinburgh City Apartments - Royal Mile
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is a nice apartment in the Royal Mile very close to the castle. It is about 150 meters or so from their office in the Crest of Edinburgh shop. We arrived little after 7 (their office hours), but that was no problem. There was a lady waiting for us to walk us to the apartment. It was a tough job bringing up the family suitcases, one of them heavy, up the spiral stone stairway to the 3rd floor, but it was managed to catch up with our guide.
The apartment has a spacious living dining kitchen room, and 2 smallish bedrooms, clean, good amenities. We had an issue of the heater in the hallway, and towel heater in the bathroom not working, so bathroom was really cold at night. We managed to keep doors open to spread the warmth as evenly as possible.
Location could not be better for us. The historical buildings and street are a big hit. 2 tour bus companies had their stops just at the entrance. the route of Hogmanay torch lightiing festival was close, abundance of shops and minimarkets around
On the whole, this is a nice maintained apartment, in the heart of the wonderful old city

Room Tip: ask for a lower floor if you have heavy luggage

We stayed there for only one night. From the beginning the staff were very friendly. The flat is very spacious and clean. Perfect location, in the heart of the old town, close to restaurants and the castle, easy to find and easy to walk to places. The thing that I didn't like, is that the rooms are noisy, our flat was on the 3rd floor but I could hear all the street noise,and people talking. Also the floor makes noise when you walk, maybe that's normal in Europe. Also the stairs are very steep.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the street.

We booked a two bed apartment for 6 people and it was perfect as we weren't spending much time there over new years. Our bedrooms were quiet tight and there wasn't a lot of space in the them but for us the main thing was cleanliness, towels and hair dryers were provided. As it was over new years we were out but the apartment would be too small if we were all there all day. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely use them again, we were also happy with the value.

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.
