Two of us shared an apartment on the Royal Mile (2nd time used) as part of a trip to watch Wales play in the Six Nations, the room was very clean with all mod. cons. and you wanted for nothing, the apartment was in the heart of the Royal Mile with everything in walking distance,(10 mins to Princes and Rose street, 5 mins to castle and Grass market) Harvey and his team made our stay very enjoyable, will not hesitate to use them again.

Amazing place! Well furnished with everything you can imagine - everything you need in a modern kitchen, tv, sofas, very comfortable shower. It's better than a hotel! Extremely spacious for 2 person. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, offered to carry the luggage for us (2 girls) from the apartment (on the 5th floor) to the ground floor upon check out, and they arrived punctually to do that. One draw back, the only drawback - the 5 storey spiral was really scary to carry a luggage on. Everyday daily walk up and down is a great form of exercise. It's the top floor of the building, which gave us a lot of privacy as well. Mind you, the entrance looks really old, the stairways look really really run down - we were quite apprehensive. But the apartment turned out to be so well furnished! Best to arrive before 7 so you can check in with less issues if any as the staff are present. Located at the heart of Edinburgh city, extremely convenient with shops and restaurants and Edinburgh castle just downstairs.

My family of four had a fantastic stay in a two bedroom apartment. The location was excellent and could not have been better - on High Street and virtually at the centre of the Royal Mile.
The check-in (inside the Crest of Edinburgh shop, through a door to the left and down some stairs), was quick and smooth. We were given a hand with our luggage up the stone spiral stairs to our apartment on the third floor, immediately above the shop/check-in.)
The use of energy saving lights and deep coloured decoration didn't help our initial impression that the apartment was a little dark. Once the lights 'warmed up' and we became accustomed to the decor, we felt comfortable in our new 'home'.
The rooms (living room, kitchen area, king-bed bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom with bath/shower), were a good size, warm, very clean and well equipped. The little things that sometimes need a shopping trip when staying in an apartment, were all there - plenty of toilet and kitchen roll, tea, coffee and sugar, milk/creamer, dishwasher tablets, laundry powder (utility room), shampoo, shower gel, hand soap and hand cream.
The beds were very comfortable with quality bedding. The bathroom was clean and well appointed with a consistent supply of hot water and a powerful shower. The TV and DVD player were a little dated but worked fine; in any case we were there to see Edinburgh. This is where the location of the apartment paid off. Virtually everything we had planned was within a 5 minute walk - Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum, Camera Obscura, St. Giles Cathedral. We even managed to climb to the summit of Arthur's Seat, starting from the Royal Palace which was just a 10 minute stroll from our apartment. The pay-off for such a central location was a little noise from the pedestrianised high street, but the occasional street cleaner helped remind us that we really were at the heart of Edinburgh - great.
The 10am check-out is a little earlier than a hotel, but we did see an army of cleaning staff eager to get their apartments cleaned and ready for the next guests. The check-out was as smooth as our arrival and at at least our timely departure did push us to enjoy our last few hours in Edinburgh. Very usefully, we were able to leave our luggage safely with reception before we departed the city mid-afternoon.
Staying in these apartments makes so much sense for a family. Why stop in a hotel 'family room' when an apartment offers so much more space and privacy for similar money? Given the quality and location, the value was very good and we would certainly use Stay Edinburgh City Apartments again.

Room Tip: Apartment 7 above the check-in was a great apartment with a well lit twin room at the front (over looking the High Street) and a more romantically lit and quiet king-bed bedroom at the back. It is up some steep steps to the third floor but right in the middle of 'old town' Edinburgh so it's location was excellent.

Five of us hired the three bedroom apartment at the top end of the Royal Mile for two nights as part of my stag weekend in April 2013.

The view from the living area window was great looking up at the Castle.

The rooms were very clean and well presented which made us feel right at home and the staff we very friendly and nothing was too much trouble (particular thanks to Harvey and Ieva!).

I would highly recommend these apartments for visitors to Edinburgh, it really is a great way to stay, in a 'home from home' rather than a hotel chain. I'm already looking at going back with my other half for a couple of nights in September!

There was a flight of stairs to tackle to enter the apartment so maybe something to think about for people with limited mobility, and yes there may be the odd bit of noise in the street at night but hey come on, it's a capital city and a major tourist destination, it's never going to be silent!!

Overall though I would return here for sure! Thanks for making my stag weekend a great one!

My wife and I and two girls stayed one night in Edinburgh with Stay Edinburgh Apartments. We previously stayed at Frasier suites on another trip (which I'd also very highly recommend). Traveling as 4 is a different challenge and we were grateful to have found a flat on the Royal Mile with ample space and separate bed rooms for our girls. Harvey (?) - the manager of Stay Edinburgh - may be the most delightful person I've met in some time. Very kind and welcoming. Could not beat the location. In our particular flat (their properties vary) the kids room was right along the royal mile which meant for lots of noise at night unfortunately. Still, it was a good trade off given the value and great location... I'd recommend for families! I also wish we had more time in one of the best cities in Europe!
