Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed two nights in the 4 bedroom apt. Front room a lot of street noise but others quiet. Tons of room- clean.
Walk to everything! Easy ck in & out.
Had some minor repair issues but we reported them.
Yes there are stairs but it's not bad if you're healthy. My active parents in their 70s never complained .

Stayed: May 2014

We were a little worried when we walked in the doorway to the apartment and saw the steep stone spiral staircase but boy was that worth it! Our apartment was large and the view was phenomenal. We chose a 2 bedroom apartment with a king in one room and two twins in the other. The big family room/kitchen was also large and the focal point was the view of the city. The location was perfect, right in the heart of the Royal Mile, but since we had a high up apartment, the noise of the street didn't travel to us. It was also an easy walk downhill to the Waverly train station.

Room Tip: Make sure to get there before 7 pm unless you have internet service. After 7, they send an e-mail w...

The apartment we lived in is of good location which is very convenient to get to lots of places. Besides, it was big and clean. The direction letter and check-in process were also very clear-cut and helpful. Besides, we were check in on 2 different dates since we were taking tours in between. The concierge can help to look after our luggage on that spare day which makes our tour much more easier ( no bother to bring our luggage all the way around). The guide book is very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.

Very good location for castle and bus services to Britannia and Holyrood House.
Stairs very steep, wouldn't like to be above second floor.
Apartment was not the one we were told on our booking form, which was a ten minute walk away, but it was OK so we said nothing.
Clean and well looked after. Not much of view, reminded me of the film Mary Poppins, all you could see where chimneys and roofs.

Room Tip: Get a room as low as possible, stairs murderous. Don't assume the apartment mentioned in booking...

The apartment was very big and very clean and comfortable. It was wonderful to be able to spread out and relax after a hectic day of sight-seeing. It was close to everything. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: There are no elevators in the main building but the staff does offer to help with bags. I don't...

A very large and comfortable unit with full kitchen (including clothes washer), two sitting rooms, separate bedroom and bath. Very comfortable and excellent location. Staff was very responsive to our problem with a key not working. Only downside for some people is that the unit(s) are atop a narros flight of stairs
