“Edinburgh - what a city ❤️❤️”
Reviewed 9 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this apartment and it won't be the last. Had a wonderful few days here and there is always something new to see The apartment was beautiful, loads of space, beds so comfy you could stay there all day (but then you would miss all the action) a very modern apartment but still nice & cosy. The manager (Dave) was really helpful and on hand if we needed him. Would not hesitate to book again. Already looking for next December All in all a great place to stay and right in the middle of the Royal Mike.

“Fabulous apartment in amazing location”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This gorgeous, two bedroom, one bathroom apartment is beautifully furnished and includes a fully fitted out kitchen with dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Bright and spacious, it is the perfect space for two couples to share and the location is amazing - right on the Royal Mile. Walk outside the door and all that Edinburg has to offer is within easy walking distance.

The agent is extremely helpful and we would definitely love to stay here again.

“Beautifully appointed, spacious apartment in an excellent location.”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This excellent apartment only 10 minutes walk from Waverley train station, suited our family perfectly. Just off the Royal Mile, it was perfect for walking to all the sights and the Fringe - the main reason for our visit.
Everything in the flat was great quality and worked perfectly. Comfy beds with pure cotton and a spacious shower made it home from home!
Would highly recommend and would definitely book again.

“Gorgeous Apartment Right on the Royal Mile”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This apartment was incredible--gorgeously designed, comfortable beds, and best of all, a location right off the Royal Mile. It was so close to absolutely everything!

TIPS:

1. If you book this apartment during one of the busy times of the year, bring earplugs--we were there during the Fringe festival and due to the location, people are merry-making all night long right outside your window.

2. There are multiple flights of stairs that must be navigated to get to this apartment.

3. When they say 'self catering' they really mean it- you literally have to buy your own toilet paper (they provide two starter rolls). We were also only able to find one extra blanket in the apartment so you may want to bring extra bedding if you get cold at night.

So pleased to hear there was many aspects of the Parliament Sq 2 apt that contributed to a successful trip to Edinburgh. Despite full working shutters and curtains in the bedrooms It is actually a very good tip to bring ear plugs as Edinburgh can become very boisterous during the festival. This is a second floor property with no lift and may not be suitable for guests with mobility issues. We do operate self catering properties, we are not a serviced apartment company or provide bed & breakfast, however we do provide some tea, coffee, milk, shampoos, shower gels, loo rolls to assist guests getting started on a self catering trip . There are plethora of smaller stores and larger supermarkets in the area for provisions. Surprised that the warmth was an issue during the summer months but we would have been able to assist with heating if we had been contacted. Regards, Glenn Ford manager.

“Incredible location...close to everything”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This flat is beautiful. The bedrooms are a descent size and the kitchen, dining and living rooms are quite large. This flat would have no trouble comfortably accommodating 4 people with room to spare. The furniture is new and comfortable and very functional. The flat looks brand new and was cleaned impeccably. We would definitely stay here again. The only caveat that we have is that due to the incredible location (very central and the place to be), there is a lot of noise well into the night. If you are used to living in a big city than this is normal...if you are a country person than the noise may bother you. For us...it was actually a great part of the action and lifeblood of the city...so we enjoyed the cacophony. As we said...we would totally stay here again...excellent location, excellent price, excellent flat.

“Favorite place to stay !”
Reviewed 8 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Parliament 2 was one of our favorite places during our trip to the UK from Canada. The location was perfect as was the apartment, it was very clean and decorated to a high standard. I highly recommend staying here, I know we will when we come back to Edinburgh. What a wonderful city, this was our second visit and it won't be our last. The apartment and location gives a true taste of what Edinburgh is all about , surrounded by fantastic pubs and sites right on the door step. Our host Dave was the best, thanks for a great stay!
