Great location , speedy check-in . Within walking distance to either end of the royal mile. We were lucky to get a room on the first floor since there's no lift. Loved the purple interior.. Very modern and cosy. We had a problem with our heater . Called the room service and they were quiet efficient. Would definitely recommend this place but will have to pack light !

This was our first trip to Edinburgh for the Tattoo & the Festival. Location was superb 5 mins from the castle and beside everything else. Trouble was our apartment no 5 was shabby, furnishings soiled , settee had burn marks on upholstery, and was covered in hairs. paintwork and wall coverings scuffed. Place was clean enough but just tired looking and in need of re-furbishment, certainly not 5 star as advertised .We spent most of the time outdoors. Staff at reception very pleasant but they just check you in and out, apartment was not serviced at all during our 2 nights stay. Not suitable for even very fit seniors, stone stairs very narrow and steep, 39 to our 2nd floor rooms! Too expensive at almost £600 for two nights in 2 -3 star accommodation very disappointing. Would choose this location but not this accommodation for our next visit.

Very helpful staff, within walking distance of pretty much everything and very clean and attractive rooms. Very pleased with this booking and would easily go back. Much preferred this apartment to any hotel I've been to in Edinburgh.

Room Tip: Room 11 was at the very top, a lot of stairs but worth the walk.

Okay, so there are lots of stairs to walk up if you get a top floor apartment but it is worth it

We stayed in apartment 11 and everything was so perfect. You have to check in at the backpackers association around the corner, but the service and welcome was fantastic. We had help with our luggage and had polite conversation all the way to the apartment.

The actual apartment was spotless. We have stayed in hotels regularly and this was our first self catering apartment, but everything was spotless. The bathroom was cleaner than most 5 star hotels I have seen! The snug upstairs in apartment 11 is great for laying back and watching the night sky - open the window to hear the city and you feel miles away!

We stayed during the festival and these apartments are in a prime location. We used to sit looking out of the window down to the street, and watch the street entertainers with a glass of wine.

The reception was fantastic and when we returned every day, the apartment had been serviced and reset like new. All the washing up was done, any washing in the washer-dryer was folded on to the table for us and not once did anyone expect a tip or complain.

Definitely our place of choice for Edinburgh, it was like being a celebrity in a swanky, posh pad for the week!

Room Tip: Apartment 11 overlooks the royal mile Remember, the hire the apartment number, the further up the stairs it is There are no lifts and a minimum of one set of stairs to the first apartments

The Royal Mile Residence is in a great location in Edinburgh, especially for first time visitors (as we were when we stayed). We only stayed one night and spent most of the weekend on the Royal Mile so the accommodation was perfect.

The room was very nice, spacious and clean. The only problem was the long spiral stairs up to the rooms (we were on the top floor) and the steepness. If you were staying for a number of nights and had luggage this access would be quite a hassle. From the living room we could hear the nighttime noise from the Royal Mile though the bedroom was set far enough back that this wasn't a bother.

The residence is easy to miss on the Royal Mile - the entrance is very small and the reception is on the street behind in the backpacker hostel. Apart from this though, I would recommend this place - especially if you have limited time in Edinburgh and want to be close to the main sights. Lovely, comfy rooms!!

Room Tip: Be aware the rooms at the top require a steep trek up the staircase
