“nice spot, great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

no real complaints, spent 2 nights, rooms were clean and we were close to the royal mile (300 yards) I would recommend people staying in Edinburgh to rent here. Staff was friendly, rate was fair. if you are looking to be in the heart of the action (pubs, restaurants, castle etc)

Spent 2 nights in 11/2 Old Fishmarket Close. Never stayed in an apartment before and after this experience likely never to again. Dodgy people hanging around entrance to apartment smoking some kind of drugs, drinking cider and loads of litter, with 2 children didn't feel safe going out/in of the apartment. Something weird going on with plumbing, really loud noise coming from water system every time you used any tap. Don't let the photos fool you, these apartments are shoddy. Would I visit Edinburgh again, absolutely yes, loved it. Would I stay here again, no way, best off in a hotel.

Stayed May 2014

I am sorry to hear your comments, however, it is unfortunate that our reception office were not made aware of any issues during your stay. In order to help guests as much as possible, we also provide a 24 hour emergency telephone line. Should there have been anyone “hanging around” in the vicinity of your apartment building, at any point, our staff would have immediately assisted you and taken appropriate action. I find this a slightly surprising comment though, as our apartments are located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, one the safest cities a person could hope for. It should be noted that our Housekeeping Manager and several housekeepers entered the building on several occasions and no dodgy persons were present.

With regards to the plumbing noises, we have never experienced any issues in this apartment prior to your comments. We actually have a full time Maintenance Engineer within our team and should you have reported the issue we would have dealt with this immediately. Furthermore, these 4 star apartments were recently refurbished and as such are in excellent condition. We try our best to maintain our high standards and we have had positive feedback from hundreds of guests this year alone that will testify to the fact we offer excellent value, fantastic locations and great properties.

I received the best help ever from a member of the reception team who went out of his way to ensure the apartment we booked was suitable for one of our group who has a medical condition. Thank you so much. Some five star hotels could learn a lesson from the way you dealt with my request.

We stayed there for one night in a 2 bedroom house (20/2 Old Tolbooth Wynd). The apartment was very clean, warm and very comfortable. But be ready to walk a bit, if you have to visit other places. However, the walk could be another plus point of staying here :)

It gets a bit quite in the evening and its also not very near to the airport.

However, it comes with an excellent bathroom, great kitchen, comfortable living room and very helpful staff. I would have happily stayed there for few more nights but we had to leave for the Highlands.

Room Tip: Be ready to walk a bit!

We stayed in the 2-room apartment last month. Was pretty impressed with the apartment which was new, clean and had a well equipped kitchen. Appreciated the gift of the shortbread, a nice gesture as we arrived at the apartment late without dinner! Located along the Royal Mile, it was easy to get around. Our stay would have been perfect if there was wifi in the apartment and the keys could be collected at the apartment instead of the office which seemed very far on check-in with our heavy luggages. Nevertheless overall very good experience!

Staff were great, extremely friendly and do helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Apartments ideally located for Holyrood and Royal Mile and short walk to Princes Street. Lovely touches as toiletries, chocolates, bottled water and orange juice provided.

We stayed in appartment 2 and were very impressed. Perfectly situated on the Royal Mile it is a very easy walk to all the attractions of this lovely city. The bedrooms were a good size with comfortable beds,crisp linen and fluffy towels. The lounge/kitchen area was big with plenty of room for four of us and every thing was very clean. Although it is situated in an old building the interior is modern and tastefully decorated we would highly recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: No lift so choose lower floors if this could be a problem
