Stay Edinburgh City Apartments - Royal Mile
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 January 2012

We had to debunk from the house due to repair work and took the opportunity to have a night in our home city. We couldn't have been happier with our stay; clean, comfortable and very friendly. Right in the heart of the city with in easy reach of most of what the city had to offer. My wife who is a light sleeper was not troubled by noise at all. Excellent, thanks.

Stayed during Hogmany! Loved the apartment - very clean and warm - they have everything you need, a real home from home luxury experience, but the best thing about Stay Edinburgh City is the location - minutes away from Edinburgh Castle, right in the middle of The Royal Mile - already booked for next year, cant wait!

The apartment was fab - really warm and comfy and in an excellent location literally right off royal mile about a two minute walk from the castle. The check-in and out process was easy and the staff were very friendly. We had a great weekend! Would definitely stay with these guys again.

Room Tip: We read in some reviews we looked at that some people said their apartment was very noisy as it was...

A superb review - wonderful comments - I really could not have put it better myself!
With regards to your room tip, all our apartment are on the Famous Royal Mile minutes away from Edinburgh Castle so there will be a degree of noise, but some of our apartments are very quiet so please just ask and we will always try to accommodate your requirements.
Many thanks for such kind words and I hope to see you again soon!
Best Wishes,
Harvey

This is my second time staying in one of their apartments this year (think I reviewed the wrong ones before), and both apartments have been fabulous. Location is super - right on the Royal mile, walking distance to everything. Interiors, although cheaply done are really modern and have everything you need. Great hairdryer and iron are a big bonus. Really really clean. Very warm and cosy for middle of winter.

Staff are so friendly - dealt with Paul, Harvey and Ashleigh and they were all so helpful, couldn't do enough for us and willing to accommodate all our needs.

Only bad thing was the smell that comes up from the toilets, but I think that's an old city Edinburgh thing rather than something specific to these apartments (and when you hear the history of the city, you don't wonder why!!).

All in all, can't recommend these apartments highly enough. Will definitely stay again if I come back to Edinburgh.

Our 1-bedroom apartment was located just a few steps off the Royal Mile, in a perfect location just down from Hunter Square in Old Town. The booking process was easy and Harvey was a pleasure, answering emails quickly and helpfully. The office and our apartment were an easy walk from the train station and we were happy to see that the building had an elevator which was nice. The interior hallway was not impressive but our apartment was spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and complete with free wi-fi, flat screen TV, well equiped kitchen, modern bathroom with spacious shower, comfy bed, and lots of windows. There was some noise - bagpipes playing at the corner during the day, squawking seagulls, people at the pub across the street but to me it added to the ambiance and is what you would expect with the perfect city center location. All the sights were within walking distance along with tons of shops, restaurants and pubs. We found Edinburgh to be a fascinating city, will definitely return and happily choose Stay Edinburgh City Apartments again.

These apartments are located around Royal Mile, very near to Edinburgh castle and the reception is located in souvenir shop called Crest of Edinburgh. Our group (10 persons) had three two-bedroom apartments, two of them located in same house and next to each other, third apartment was nearby at the same street. These arrangements were suitable for us, because the third apartment was an easy-access place to knee-problem persons without any stairs. All of us were very satisfyed to the quality of acommodation: beautifully furnished common areas, well-equipped kitchen, tv, even dvd-player! Everything was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Two fellows at reception, Paul and Harvey were so friendly and helpfull, thank you guys! And yes, I can highly recommend this place.
