Excellent value n perfect location

We've a 2-bedroom apartment, newly renovated with full amenities. Unfortunately washing machine was out of order. The king sized bed was comfortable but the bunk bed squeaked. Many TV channels n wifi signal good. The only complaint is shower stall is very slippery, better if non-slip mat is provided.

Very nice apartment. Excellent location and very good value. A little hard to find at first but once you've got your bearings it's in a very handy location for local transport, sites etc.

Excellent location but squeaky bunk bed

Apartment is clean and rooms are cosy except for the squeaky bunk bed and intermittent slow wifi. The location is excellent, within walking distance to all the tourist attractions. Rail station is only 10 mins walk if coming by the right direction but we were kind of lost so it took us alost 20 mins. There were many cafes and restaurants nearby. If you are joining the Sandemans tour the meeting point is just round the corner. We enjoyed ourselves in Edinburgh!

Winter break

The apartment was well situated just a short walk from the Castle, museums and a wide choice of restaurants and pubs. It was comfortable and clean. Unfortunately dispite being a non smoking apartment it smelled of cigarette smoke. The close proximity to a student accomodation block lead to occasional noise in the early hours of the morning. Given those disadvantages I still believe the apartment was very good value for money and would stay there again.

The food at "Under the Stairs" is delicious and good value. The restaurant is small and popular so I would recommend booking to avoid disappointment

Needs updating

We booked this apartment for an overnight city break with the kids. Flat was in a good central location in an interesting part of town. Having walked for most of the day kids were tired, having collected the keys and given 3pm entry time we arrived at 315pm only to find the cleaner still working within so we felt obliged to leave for a while. The flat was badly decorated in dark and dated wallpaper ( missing strips onthe bedroom walls) the living room was uninviting with a green carpet and red suite (all very tired and old), blinds didn't close and no lamps. Place was clean and beds very comfortable however we didn't find it pleasant on the whole due to the issues. I would not recommend.

Awesome location and property .. Shame about the stairs

Unit is beautiful, everything you could think of available. Staff helpful. Room clean and comfortable. Brilliant location on the royal mile, however !not easy to find. Only downside is that we had the best unit but it was on the 5th floor.... Imagine walking up 94 old spiral cement stairs lugging suitcases .. Going down much better than up. Ended up timing trips to only go down a minimum number of times per day.

Don't bother with ghost or vault tours, do the Real Mary King Close tour instead.
