Good but needs attention to detail

We were luck enough to have one of the newly fitted out rooms, we were very impressed. Great location, friendly staff who were very happy to help, and find someone who knew the answer if they didnt. Only gripes about the place would have to be the mismatch of utensils in the kitchen and how creaky the floorboards can be in some areas. The central heating was really good, except for the times wehn it would revert back to 14degrees and freeze us during the night. I dont think it was their fault, I think tha previous guests had played with the controller. In all we were quite impressed.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Parking is a nightmare, the cheapest place to park is the St James Centre NCP, but at 15 pounds a day, its very costly. On the weekend try parking on a single yellow line to avoid the high cost.

Excellent choice

Perfect if you're looking for a central location, which is also quiet as well as convenient. Have never stayed in an aparthotel before so the concept of having a kitchen/dining area in our bedroom was new to us - however a very effective way of staying in the city centre allowing you the choice of eating out or staying in. Very clean and comfortable; the staff helpful and courteous; we had a garden room (102) which we would recommend.

Good location

The two bedroom apartment was as described plenty of space. Reception always helpful regarding eating out. At present roadworks but that's part of progress for this city. Excellent all round

We found this accommodation extremely

We found this accommodation extremely good as it was very central and adequate to our needs. the only problem we had was getting the boiler to work - we couldn't and neither could the receptionist. Fortunately we decided to just pop on a jacket, as it wasn't too cold and that was enough.

Great location--we walked all

Great location--we walked all over Edinburgh from the hotel. Having a full kitchen was also very helpful. The biggest drawback was that internet access costs five pounds a day, and the access through their keyboard and TV was woefully inadequate.
