“Terrific corner apartment”
Reviewed 30 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The location can't be beat and the apartment was exactly as described. We would definitely stay there again. One caution: there is no elevator and it is three flights up.

“Fantastic Flat in Fantastic Location”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I used to live in Edinburgh so I knew the location of the apartment was fantastic before we had even seen the place. I was concerned it might be a bit loud, but the flat has extra glazed reinforcements on the window so it was quieter. It doesn't block out the sound completely on a Friday and Saturday night, but it's good enough. It would be hard to get away with no noise on the Royal Mile. It is great value for the location, especially considering that you would pay at least three times the price if you stayed in any of the hotels on the Royal Mile. The lounge is a beautiful spacious room and it's a decent sized apartment for two people. I loved being high up above the street, but if you aren't a fan of stairs, then this isn't the apartment for you.

Thank you for finding the time to leave a review for the St Giles apt. It is always a pleasure to know that it played it's part in giving a guest a successful trip to Edinburgh. The stairs do require a little effort but the rewards are more than worth it when you see the astounding views from the four lounge windows. It also saves you time by not having to go to the gym.

“Edinburgh is wonderful, St,Giles appartment made it even better!”
Reviewed 3 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A really lovely stay, your manager Dave Stewart was extremely efficient in sorting a minor problem with the bathroom lighting, and always available via, phone, text or email for any queries, which was very reassuring. The property was very clean and well stocked, I cannot think of anything that could be added regarding kitchen equipment. A nice touch was the amount of good quality towels available for guests, very generous indeed. The location was fantastic, views up and down the Royal Mile were wonderful. Windows sound proofed, so even though we enjoyed people watching and things going on till' all hours, we were never disturbed by noise at all. We will be back hopefully.

“Best location apartment in Edinburgh”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here before & loved it again. View from living room windows of royal mile is wonderful. You see St. Giles cathedral and the cobblestone street and the old parliament building. It's a skinny street so traffic is minor & sometimes they close it down for pedestrians only out front so that gives it a homey feel. When you walk down the stairs & outside you are already in the middle of town where everything's happening. Lots of shopping & restaurants are out the door. History is everywhere. The windows are great at keeping the noise out, the bedroom is light & airy with a comfy bed, living room is pleasant and great for people watching on the street below. Newer kitchen & bathroom. Wood floors in bedroom & living room. Much more space than a hotel room for less money. The company was good to work with on reservation & keys etc. No lift but we didn't mind walking up for such a great location! We loved it again.

“PLEASE STAY HERE!!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The absolute best place to stay in Edinburgh! You will be at the heart of Edinburgh if you stay here. The apartment with the newly updated kitchen is both large and cozy. I was here for a week in early June and based my decision to spend the time here on other reviews like mine and the photos on line. I love to cook so I can attest to the capability of the kitchen to fulfill my desires! One caveat it is three flights up!

“Views to die for!!!”
Reviewed 17 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

How wonderful to find this apartment on the Royal Mile. The views were fantastic and bed and couches extremely comfortable!!! Very clean and had a lovely homely feeling. Near to all transport and bus day trips. Of all the different apartments we have stayed in Edinburgh over the last few years, this one is by far my favourite!! Thank you to Glenn and Dave. It was a pleasure dealing with you - we hope to see you next year.!!
Kind regards

“Comfortable and Ideally Located”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in March 2014

We were looking for a place that was conveniently located, comfortable, and affordable, and this was definitely that. The apartment was clean and well-furnished, and due to the great location, we could just as easily eat out as whip up something in the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable, the heating worked well, and the noise from outside was minimal. Also, the wi-fi was especially appreciated. The stairs getting to the apartment might be a challenge for some, but it's pretty standard for buildings in this part of town. Overall, the apartment was exactly what we hoped for.
