Excellant accomodation and central location. The rooms were spotlessly clean and looked like new. The bathrooms were all a great size and well stocked with toileteries. the beds were enormous and very comfotable. The kitchen / lounge dining area was huge. We faced a courtyard and so couldnt hear any traffic noise outside. Overall an excellant place to stay. The only down side - could have done with a peg or two to hang coats up, a kitchen tea towel would have been handy and maybe a mirror in he bedroom. woould definitely stay again

Hello there. Thank you very much for your review, it's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Coat hangers are on our list to add to the apartments, but I am disappointed to hear you didn't have a tea towel, these should be in each apartment. I am also confused about the mirror as each wardrobe should have a mirror in it, next to the hairdryer. If you could take the time to email me on Julie@thechambersedinburgh.co.uk and let me know which apartment you stayed in, I would really appreciate it.
I hope we see you again soon.

Let me just say that this is not your run of the mill apartment, it's first class on par with a suite in 5 star hotel. It is huge! Our 1 bedroom apartment is gorgeously furnished in a modern cozy style, with lots of high end high quality finishing with Siemens kitchen and Duravit bathroom fittings. The contrast of dark wooden flooring and grey walls interspersed with cream walls made it very cozy. Very impressed with the furniture as well, some 70's style chair in leather and sofa which can also turn into a sofabed. Fresh milk is free, coffee and tea and biscuits provided. Nespresso coffee and coffee maker in the kitchen. I was impressed with the kindest service I've received. When we arrived, there was a cot and baby high chair already! Wow! The manager on site, Gaia and her evening colleague was ever so helpful and unbelievably nice to us. She took us to our room and anything we needed she was at hand to assist; including slippers and toiletries and this is even better than the last 5 star hotel we stayed in Chicago in June. She was so kind to even let us leave an hour later at 12 on checkout; and we were so lucky to get in early at 11 as I had a Fellowship ceremony at Royal College of Physicians at 12 and needed to dress up. We will come back when we're back in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Check out the three bedroom penthouse

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath apartment with our twenty-something daughter for one night while enroute to the Isle of Skye. The apartment was first-class! We each had our privacy while enjoying the common area, as well. The location, although difficult for the taxi driver to find, was wonderful being right in the heart of the Royal Mile. I'd recommend downloading a small map with its location to alleviate the potential taxi problem.

Room Tip: Higher floors less likely to be bothered by some ongoing construction nearby.

What a lovely review, thank you for taking the time to post it. We are delighted to hear that you took full advantage of our apartments, they are great when there are more than one party who want privacy but also a shared space.
We are finding that taxi drivers often know where we are now, but if not just ask to be dropped off next to the restaurant Angels with Bagpipes and walk down Roxburgh's Close and that's where we are!
We hope to see you back soon!

I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at The Chambers with my parents during a 3 day trip to Edinburgh, and we all agreed that it was the perfect place for us! The apartment itself was beautiful with a large living area, fully equipped kitchen, one king-sized bedroom, one queen bedroom, and two full en-suite bathrooms. The decor was modern with some cute little old-world touches. We had a lovely view of the Balmoral Hotel from our bedrooms, which looks beautiful lit up at night.The Chambers is situated right on the Royal Mile, and it is a great location for sight-seeing. The castle is a short walk in one direction, and the Holyrood Palace a slightly longer walk in the other direction. The hotel itself is a little difficult to find if you don't know where you're going. Luckily we had a very friendly taxi driver from the airport who dropped us off right in front of Roxbury Close, and from there it was a few steps down to get to the hotel. Just beware that there is no way to get to this hotel without going up or down stairs. From the Royal Mile it's a few stairs down, and from Cockburn Street (near Waverley Bridge) it's a whole bunch of stairs up. We even had to go down stairs once we went in the front door of the apartment to get to the living spaces. We were happy to deal with the stairs in order to find this little gem of a hotel, though. Being able to stay in same place without having to pay the price of two expensive hotel rooms was really wonderful for us. We would definitely stay here again. Hopefully next time we'll have a slightly longer trip to enjoy beautiful Edinburgh.

Thank you for your lovely review, being situated in the heart of the old town of Edinburgh means there is nothing we can do about the stairs up to us, but I am glad the taxi knew to bring you to the High Street, which is by far the easier entrance. We look forward to seeing you again when you return!

My husband, our 4 year old and I spent wonderful 7 days at the end of the August in Scotland.
The tour included Edinburgh, Inverness and Glasgow.
We were very happy and excited before our arrival because we heard a lot of nice things about Scotland, especially Edinburg in summer!
The Chambers was our choice, first of all because the location is spectacular. Second of all, we had a great new one bedroom apartment with cooking facilities, so our choice was a good one.

Apart - Hotel itself is small boutique hotel, perfectly decorated. There were few designer things like Tolomeo Artemide floor lamp. The apartment is very well equipped, with great facilities to cook (if you have needs). The bathroom is small but nice
Location is the best we have ever had. Just few steps and you are right in front of St. Giles.
We have got one bedroom apartment with balcony and really nice view of Princes Street.
This was great option since there is no street noise in the apartment and the view is really great!

Reception staff is doing good job, but you can feel that all this is brand new, so they need some time to become professional.

I hope we will return back in Edinburgh, and if we do, and if we would stay in apartment I would definitely go for The Chambers. If we will stay in Hotel, I would prefer Hotel Missoni, for sure!
