“Great location, clean, as advertised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2011

Terrific place that was reasonably priced (for Edinburgh) given its location. I slept on the chair-futon, which was perfectly comfortable, and the youngsters I was traveling with took the beds. It's big enough for three people, though probably not four. Absolutely terrific shower & a great way to warm up after some cold, windy walks on the Royal Mile. :)

Note: it's a PERFECTly central location, but if you're not a city-dwelling type, you may find it a bit noisy. I had no trouble sleeping whatsoever but my cousins, who live in the suburbs, were woken up one of the nights by some revelers below.

This apartment is in a great location and is clean and modern. Provided a perfect base to explore the old town and easy access to the rail and buses for further afield. I really enjoyed coming 'home' each night to this space and the views are fabulous. The owners were very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Happy to recommend highly.

The apartments are ideally situated, around the corner from the Royal Mile and over looking Princes Street with awesome views.
The train station is a 5 minute walk and airport a 20 minute taxi ride.
The apartments are clean, and can accomodate 4 people comfortably. Jill was fantastic and very helpful. I cannot praise this accomation enough!!
The Wash Bar next door to the apartments is welcoming and friendly and serves lovely food.
Edinburgh is a fantastic city and we cannot wait to visit again.

Brilliant and friendly service from Jill. Great location 5 mins from station with views across princes street gardens and Christmas markets. Spacious apartment with all you need. Nice and warm during a very cold spell. Will be coming back again and would recommend to friends.

Recently stayed two nights at Capital View apartments. The service relating to bookings and communcation was excellent. The apartment is conveniently situated right in town with a five minute walk from Waverley Railway Station and close to everything. The apartment itself was very modern and spacious, if a touch noisy at night but should expect that for the convenience of being right in the centre of everything. For the price it is a great find.

This accommodation has a great location, amazing views over the city, really nice and clean rooms and a great bed with a fluffy comforter. Unfortunately, this place also has sound proofing of a tent.

We stayed in an 8th floor apartment over the Halloween weekend. We woke up several times during the night to the shouting of partying people and the sounds of emergency vehicles.

Can't recommend this to very light sleepers or families with children, but if you can keep up with the other party animals until three in the morning, you'll have no problem at all and this is the place for you.
