“Perfect location, amazing view”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Stayed for three nights in the top floor apartment. The apartment was amazing and had a beautiful view over the city - not to mention being slap bang in the middle of the Royal Mile. There were a lot of stairs up to the apartment - it's a fairly steep spiral staircase with uneven steps up to the fifth floor, but that's what you have to expect in the Old Town! Overall, couldn't fault it at all.

Very easy check in process which also included a little help to get all of our luggage to the fifth floor! When we saw the steep spiral stair case it was a shock especially holding an 18month old but walking into a spacious,modern, open plan, clean apartment with beautiful views of the city made it all worth it. We had a one bedroom apartment with enough room in the living area to have a cot which was provided. We stayed four nights with the apartment cleaned in those days. There is a little noise from the royal mile which you may hear at night but not enough to keep you awake too long. The walk up and down the stairs can get a bit much but the location, affordability, and the convenience of a self contained apartment when you have little one's means we would stay again should we come back. Thanks for a memorable holiday

Room Tip: If you don't mind the walk up and down, the penthouse has a good layout for little children who...

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 .

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.
