Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed our stay in apartment 5 for 2 nights. The place was spotlessly clean. The bedroom was on the smaller side but ideal for our needs and the bed was very comfy. The living area was perfect for relaxing in and had everything we needed. The apartment was also lovely and toasty which was appreciated considering January temperatures. The only thing I would comment on that might concern some would be the stairs. If anyone has mobility issues or has lots of luggage. Excellent comms with the few questions I had. Thank you. We look forward to returning for another kid free girls break.

My husband and I stayed at No. 1 Apartments George IV Bridge in Edinburgh for just under one week (on vacation from Canada). We can't say enough good things!! (And I'm VERY particular!!) We initially stayed in a one-bedroom suite (no. 4) and then upgraded to a two bedroom suite (no. 8). Both had views of the castle. Although situated in an older, heritage building, the apartments have a modern aesthetic. This is a walk-up without an elevator or a/c, so that may be an issue for some. We stayed on the very top floor and didn't find the stairs to be an issue. The location is absolutely perfect. It's only a 3 minute walk to the Royal Mile, and maybe 5 more mins to Edinburgh Castle. Holyrood Castle is at the opposite end of the Royal Mile, about a 20 minute walk, at most. Victoria Street (aka Diagon Alley) is literally around the corner, just 2 mins away. Grassmarket is at the end of that short street, about a 4 min walk. Greyfriars Bobby is at the end of the block, so less than a minute's walk away. All to say, it's a great location. While there are no hotel staff members onsite, they're extremely responsive and will come to your suite within minutes, if there's an issue. Peter and Jan (the contacts for our suites) were extremely helpful and always available by phone or in-person. The suites are clean and well-designed. Both the one- and two-bedroom suites have a combined washer/dryer, and a kitchenette with a fridge and microwave. The two-bedroom is very large and spacious, but only has one bathroom. We loved it. We would return to No. 1 Apartments in a heartbeat. Thanks for an awesome stay!! We hope to return one day!!

We stayed for 2 nights in the Two-Bedroom Castle View. Cosy and very comfortable, with all the amenities. Coffee machine, washer, stove, etc. Living/dining area very spacious. The unit was at the top of the building with good view into the backyard garden. Location is great, a short stroll away from historic Edinburgh. Would highly recommend this place!

The service was poor as they did not tell us in advance and neither the website says that they have only one bathroom for a two bedroom apartment and there is no lift as their checkout is also early they charge you per hour for late checkout the cleanliness was also not good neither they co operated as the rooms do not have any cross ventilation so it is very hot inside

This is a lovely self-catering apartment. We were in Apartment No.1 (on the second floor) for 3 nights, and the location was excellent. About 10 minutes from the Princes Street tram station, and right off the Royal Mile, directly next to the Elephant House of Harry Potter fame. The kitchen was fully equipped, including an all-in-one washer/dryer. Since we had booked direct, there was a also a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us in the fridge. The bedroom was a little small but very comfortable. Shampoo and body wash is provided, but not hair conditioner, fyi -- though the shampoo was so great that ended up not being an issue! The late night street noise was a bit much, so best to bring earplugs. There is free luggage storage on the 3rd floor available the day you check in and out, which will be accessible with the keycode they send you prior to check-in. Do be aware there are plenty of stairs and no elevator, but that wasn't an issue for us. Management was very responsive to any questions. Also you can pay a little more for an early check-in, totally worth it if you have a flight that arrives in the morning.

This was the perfect place to base for 4 days in Edinburgh. It's just a couple of blocks to High Street and the Castle and a 10-minute walk to the train station. Or walk the other direction and you are in a quieter neighborhood around the university. It was great having a refrigerator and a kitchen, as well as a roomy sitting area. Much nicer than a cramped hotel room. I had a 1-bedroom castle view apartment on the second level (#6) with a great view of the castle from the dining table where I had my coffee in the mornings. The bedroom is on the opposite side, overlooking a fairly busy street, but high enough up that I wasn't disturbed by the noise. The other apartment on that floor (#4) has a bedroom that overlooks a side street, so it might be a bit quieter. But I liked the layout where I was. I will definitely choose this over a hotel next time I visit.

Likes: Great location, hot shower, comfortable beds, amazing castle view and quiet neighborhood. Just a street over from Victoria Street and literally next to the birthplace of Harry Potter. The Greyfriar’s Bobby is just down the street. Dislikes: We found dishes are dirty and there is no elevator in the building so be prepared to hike to the top.

We stayed in a 2 bed Castle view- Apt 8 for two nights in Feb and wish we had been able to stay longer. Stunning views of the castle. Modern décor & spotlessly clean throughout. Very spacious but so cosy too. Heating was warmed up super quick with a modern dial on the wall. Beautiful grand staircase leading up to the apartments. The bed was large & very comfy. Robe, slippers, hairdryer & a safe were in the wardrobes. Bottle of Prosecco awaited us in the fridge as we booked direct with the owners, lovely touch. Fantastic location for the Royal Mile and other attractions and all within walking distance. So many choices of restaurants, cafes & bars on the doorstep. Recommend ‘Vittoria’ Italian Restaurant next door. Didn’t hear any noise from any other apartments during our stay either. Definitely will return. Accommodation was beautifully presented & excellent communication from booking to leaving. Thank you to the hosts for making our trip so special.

This place was perfect. Our flat had a beautiful view of the castle from the bedroom and a beautiful view of the street in the living room. The flat was a dream. We wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights in that place. We booked this for part of our honeymoon stay in Scotland and it was perfection. The location was perfect, walking distance to anything you needed.
