“Fantastic Apartments”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

Its our second time at the Capital Apartments and it defo won't be the last. Excellent facilities, lift to all floors, Royal Mile out the back from the 4th floor. The apartments themselves are very clean, well equipped, small and compact yet with everything at hand to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. Plenty of storage for clothes and to hide cases and bags away. Showers are brilliant, plenty of towels. The decor of the apartments is practical, stylish and comfortable.
The views from the apartment day and night was just superb. The location of the apartments is ideal, you haven't got far to travel to visit the sights, close to bus routes and train station. The mound can be a bit noisy late at night and early in the morning with revelers coming home, but only noticable because I can't sleep without a window open. Plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry. Great Museums that are free too!

Room Tip: Rooms with a view. Excellent facilities within the apartment.

Our family of four stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed it. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need. Very clean. The veiws are excellent over looking waverly station, princess street and beyond as far as the eye can see. It is well located. Just walk out the back door and you are on the royal mile, go out the front door cross the road down the steps and you are in princess street gardens. Everything is within walking distance. Would highly recomend.

I stayed in one of these apartments for a weekend and was very impressed. The apartment was clean and cosy and the view from all the windows was amazing! The location is ideal for anyone wanting to visit all the sights in Edinburgh. Jill was extremely helpful and made sure we were well prepared for our stay. My friend left her Ipod in the apartment and Jill very kindly went out of her way to post this back to us and we received it back within days. Would highly recomend staying in this apartment if visiting Edinburgh.

We stayed for a weekend in the penthouse apartment to watch the Sotland v Wales Rugby match. The game was a bit dour but the accomodation and position of the apartment was perfect. More than enough room for 8 people and could easily have taken 10. Marvellous views of Edinburgh.

My 17 year old daughter and I stayed here while visiting the University of Edinburgh from the U.S. It was delightful in every way and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Jill ensured we were well-prepared in advance, and the location of the flat made ground transportation extremely easy. Although we arrived from our flight well before the flat would normally be ready, we were met at the door, given a key and place to store our luggage, and directions to the university and eating options so we could begin orienting ourselves. A Sainsbury's is nearby so we saved on expenses by having a pub meal out every day--there are many excellent options nearby--and eating at the well-appointed flat at other times. The flat had modern plumbing and plentiful hot water, which was unexpected, and it was quite safe for my daughter to go shopping or sight-seeing on her own when she wished. It is on The Mound so beautifully situated for cultural excursions, shopping, and the university, and being so close to Waverly Station is ideal. We could hear bag-piping buskers very faintly from our flat but on the 8th floor there was little street noise. The wifi was consistent as was the elevator, with only one exception. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: No fitness center obviously, but the stairs down to Princes Street will more than suffice!
