We can't wait to come and stay again. What a wonderful place to come and stay. Excellent, helpful and efficient service. Beautiful apartment, stylishly furnished and spotlessly clean , everything you could want and more. Wonderful and peaceful nights sleep.
My wife and I had a last-minute opportunity to visit Edinburgh, and the only hotel of which we were aware was the Balmoral. While I'm sure the Balmoral is an outstanding hotel, we rarely stay in the "heart of the action," or care to deal...More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

I would have thought this place is child friendly. There are no lifts however and you should ask for a lower floor room. It is very accessible to the city and moving with a young child would be easy if staying here.
