“Perfect place for 6 friends on a 3 bedroom apartment at the heart of Edinburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

We stayed for 2 days and would have stayed longer if we had knows how nice it was. Its very close to all the tourist attractions. Several supermarkets and restaurants nearby. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. Please note there was only 2 toilets. 1 at the master bedroom, and 1 to be shared by the rest of the guest. Very safe and easy access to the basement parking.

Room Tip: rooms facing the river would be perfect

Last-minute booking on weekend in June for family of 3 adults. Location outside the city centre - calm, but not near so many shops or restaurants. Apartment is very well equipped, comfortable and clean. Two bedrooms, a full kitchen, complete AV equipment including an iPod dock. All well-maintained. Very nice - highly recommended.

After a lengthy stay in various hotels across the City I can safely say that these will always be my first choice of accommodation in Edinburgh. They are clean and spacious, and really offer a home away from home. With all kitchen appliances, hair dryer, plentiful towers, 2 bathrooms there really is nothing more that I would require.

Don't be put off if you feel they are a little bit out of the city centre, it really isn't far you can walk everywhere. The Tesco Express is nearby and really does have most things you would need in order to cook yourself meals etc. but you are very close - less than 5 mins from Lothian Road where there are plenty of restaurants. To walk down to Princes Street only takes me a maximum 20 minutes and you can walk down to the Royal Mile in 15 minutes. It is actually very nice to be out of the busy city centre, the canal is perfect for walking along or going for a jog. You get to experience a really pretty end of town.

I have just booked these apartments for a hen do that I am organising as well because I was so impressed and the management have been incredibly helpful - organising restaurant bookings, nightclub entry etc. as well as lots of advice. Absolutely brilliant customer service and a pleasure to deal with.

Great value for money!

After several days of being confined to a "family" room in London, my family needed some space. This location offered 3 bedrooms (with TV in each), 2 baths, living room, full kitchen, and even a washer/dryer. The 12 & 14 year old grandkids with me LOVED having their own room. Everyting was comfortable, clean, modern, and spacious. There was an Italian restaurant about a 2 minute walk away, which was very good. It was a little too far (uphill) to walk to the center of Edinburg, but a short taxi ride. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the canel have a relaxing view.

We stayed here during our self drive holiday in Edinburgh at the end of May 2013.

It's quite a convenient place. There's a TESCO supermarket within 5 mins walk away. It's about half an hour's walk from Edinburgh castle and the Royal Mile.

What we like about this place is the view. The living room is facing a small river. It's all peace and quiet when you look out of the window.

Parking is not free though. The reception is also not 24 hours but there's a 24 hour hotline to call for help when you need it. Room service is good. Bedsheets and towels are changed daily dutifully. Bedrooms are pretty small. We had to open our luggages in the common areas/ storerooms. Master bedroom was good sized.

Room Tip: Ask for one that faces the waterfront. Beautiful scenery awaits you.

Went there for 2 days with my wife and another couple.
Booked the 2 bedroom apartments and were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartments.
Overall the flat is really nice and spacious with "free" WI-FI, 15 min walk from the city centre so it's not that far from Prince's street as some reviews mentioned.

Cons:
- Carpeting a bit dirty, need serious cleaning
- TV channels are tough to set up, 3 boxes, remote controls not responsive...
- All doors were very noisy (oil missing) and slamming (only few stoppers were available)
- Shower variable hot and cold without touching anything
- Check out 11am - Additional 10£ for noon check out, 20£ for 1pm check out....
