We were a little nervous when we arrived as the entrance is a little shabby but once we got to the apartment we were very happy. Great view, spacious light rooms and well equipped. Location is good - a short walk to the royal mile, we liked the fact we were off the main tourist drag - lots of food shops and places to eat nearby. Loved the free wifi. Checking in was super easy just turn up and get the keys out of the key safe - personally I am happy not to do meet and greet with owners.
If you are picky you could say the flat needs a little tlc but we loved it. In fact one our party kept saying it was exactly the kind of place she wanted to live in.

This apartment is ideally situated for exploring the Old Town. It offers spacious and comfortable accommodation and we found it ideal. It was clean and tidy and we settled in and felt at home right away. Unlike some other travellers I find the fact that I don't need to meet the owners a refreshing change. They were however easily contacted by phone, email and text if required. I didn't require any contact with them as the place was as advertised and we just explored the area. Being on the third floor added to the security of the place and allowed us greater relaxation. You do hear street noises, but that's what happens when you book somewhere in the centre of a large city and, although present, is not too bad anyway. I have already recommended this apartment to others who are thinking of visiting Edinburgh. Everbody has a view but a couple of posting on here really are way off the mark for this particular property. Comfortable, clean, affordable and convenient city centre accommodation.

We were a little nervous after reading some of the reviews before arriving in Edinburgh. The moment we opened the outer door to the building, our minds were put at ease. It's clean, convenient and very spacious with views of the Royal Mile and castle across the bridge. There is free wifi, a stove, refrigerator and washing machine in the kitchen, good shower, a dining table in the living room and all of the beds and sofas were comfortable. Most importantly, the location couldn't have been better.

You do have to walk up several flights of stairs, but if you don't enjoy climbing, you should avoid Edinburgh altogether. There is no service, but clean towels are provided and it feels more like an apartment than a hotel anyway.

There was only one disadvantage that we noticed and it didn't really bother us. Since it's in a popular area, there is noise from the street into the middle of the night as well as the sound of sea birds. The first time we heard them, it sounded like an old woman cackling which frightened our daughter until we were able to explain the sound.

Firstly, we would point out that the guest did not actually even view the apartment.
The guest booked through a website which is unable to individuallt list our apartments seperately. However, the main web page makes it very clear that our apartments are in different locations and provides an accurate distance from the main tourist area. The information on each apartment also provides the post code of that apartment in order that the guest knows the exact location. Once a booking is made a confirmation e-mail is sent to the guest to confirm the full postal address of the apartment and check in

We pre-booked an apartment with Auld Reekie Apartments. We received a text message informing us where to get the keys. Although we had no difficulty with this, there was no personal service provided by the owners. In fact, we never met the owners.

The beds were not comfortable. There were no curtains on the windows, only cream blinds which did not darken out the rooms. This meant we were all awake at 7am. As there is only single pane windows in the apartment we stayed in, the noise was incredible and no one had a good night sleep.

Finally, an additional charge was deducted from our credit card with prior authorisation.
