Comfortable stay

Once we found a quicker way to get to The Royal Mile the location of this hotel was ideal for what we required, in a quieter spot than other hotels. Great walks in nearby Holyrood Park and handy local amenities - Foodies for breakfast, Tesco Express for any supplies and other restaurants for evening meals. WiFi was a little hit and miss, but other facilities were good - nice touch to have milk already supplied in fridge. Gym facilities a little disappointing as no weights for my son to use, but overall a very satisfying and comfortable stay - would recommend.

Fantastic base in the centre of old Edinburgh

Jordan greeted us and was able to answer all our questions and provide information on the surrounding area. The apartment met all our requirements. The WiFi was excellent. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful, with all the main attractions of the city within walking distance and there are so many great eating places close at hand. When we visit Edinburgh again the Holyrood ApartHotel is at the top of our list.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Ride around on the tourist buses for a day at least. You can buy a day ticket that entitles you to use all 5 types and you can get on and off as you please over 24 hours. 3 have live commentary and the volunteer 'guides' that do this are all locals and are terrific. You can get a great feel for the place 'on the buses'.

Great stay

The hotel is just off the Royal Mile, but it lies between Canongate and Holyrood Street and our taxi could not find it. For Walking it is perfect. You can more or less just step out and walk up to the castle. The rooms are new and fresh and the kitchen is perfect with space and Everything you could possibly need. There is a dishwasher and a washing machine. Detergents are supplied (thoughtful!). We had great lunches on Town and saved money by eating at home.

The location of the Holyrood Aparthotel

The location of the Holyrood Aparthotel Edinburgh was great, easy walking distances to so many attractions, plenty of choice to where to go for meals and the service was excellent. The apartments were well designed and everything we needed was there. Would highly recommend.

Apartment was large and spotlessly

Apartment was large and spotlessly clean and worthy of its fourstar rating. Location was as described - Royal Mile was a couple of hundred yards away and the Scottish Government Building and Dynamic Earth a hundred yards the other way. We were on a last minute break and paid a low rate making it an even better getaway. Only minor quibble is the one lift can take ages (we were on the fifth floor) to arrive. The underground parking was good value at £8.50 per day considering the location of the apratments.
