    Fabulous

    The apartment was very large and clean with a comfy sofa and large tv. The bed was extremely comfortable and the location of the apartment building in Old Town worked perfectly for us. We were even pleasantly surprised (but a little spooked) that our building was directly on top of the infamously haunted Edinburgh vaults. The building was also less than 5 minutes walk to Edinburgh cathedral and there are heaps of nice places to eat around there. It was also about a 20 minute walk to the base of Aurthor's Seat.

    It was not made clear at the time of booking that the check-in address was different from the location of the apartment. The actual building our apartment was located in was very rough, dark, dank and a bit scary. It seemed very secure though and thankfully our actual rooms were very bright, clean and a far less oppressive atmosphere than the rest of the building. The apartment did however only have thin draw shades on the bedroom windows and no curtains at all in the kitchen so the cold air really came through expecially at night. There was also no radiator in the bathroom, only a towel rack.

    The staff were extremely friendly and professional - we had a large group staying in two separate apartments and they arranged an upgraded pair of apartments so that we could stay in the same location. The apartments themselves were beautiful, and we couldn't have asked for a more convenient location, right in the centre of Edinburgh! Thank you!

    Location is along Royal Mile, near to Edinburgh Castle and train station.

    The stairs climb is a challenge if you have a big luggage.

    Very good

    Great location. Didn't have time to cook but kitchen seemed well-equiped, modern and clean

    Slightly chaotic arrival procedure as we arrived out of hours. Wasn't a big problem but would have been if we hadn't had a mobile phone. Also, taxi booked to return to airport didn't show even though we confirmed the booking on arrival.

    Location is great just off the Royal Mile, spacious living area with all facilities provided.

    Fresh paint etc and had the facilities but entrance is amongst 'a cluster of wheelie bins' and the hall way and elevator have seen better days. There was also a problem with kids hanging out and smoking and drinking in the stairwells. Second bedroom was a bit small for teenagers would have worked better with younger kids.
