“Great location, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

12 of us stayed for 3 nights in 2 apartments. For such a big group and for the price we paid we weren't expecting much. How wrong we were. The location is brilliant. It's a stones throw from Princes street. The customer service was great. We left some clothes in a wardrobe and they forwarded them to us the next day. If you are looking for an apartment as a base for a large group then you can't go wrong with this place.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

Having booked through late rooms I got a very good deal, location is superb, apartment is huge and finished to a good standard. There are issues with windows - in a grade 1 listed area you should accept and tolerate that, the curtains are substantial and compensate for any short comings.
If you are staying for more than one night shop before you arrive as local provisions not fantastic if you are self catering.
If you are socialising, or doing the tourist experience this is a gem!!!
Will certainly return and thoroughly recommend.

Four Flights of stairs - not for the faint or hearted.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

What was going for this was its location: a stone's throw from the revised bus stop ( re-routed for the tram works), not a lot further from the regular route. Good communication from the caretaker, when arrirving later than planned, to give directions for access. Went downhill after this. Top floor flat- yes, info on the website - what was not mentioned was the lack of stair lighting!
Rooms were basic - unmade beds looked just like that, with matresses bare and some against the windows with no headboads. Cupboards loaded with broken/old stuff that nobody had yet disposed of. No internet access/ instructions on how to obtain it available (was an item available when booking). Noise from a restaurant below was incessant -fans kept going 24/7. Kitchen was a nightmare - broken/chipped glass and crockery, nothing matched and nothing to clean up with; not a tea towel, cloth or a bit of kitchen paper. Even the bin had no lid.
Something from student days - rather than a 'hotel/serviced apartment' booking.
