"Good location but true apartment living"
convenient location; oversized rooms which was great for families. Very friendly and cooperative staff. Just be careful if you are coming in after hours. And no services. This truly is an apartment and there is no lobby per se.

"Poorly maintained, but nicely situated"
We had a three room apartment with kitchen overlooking the road. Check in was easy, and Lisa was very pleasant. The apartment itself was tattered and poorly cleaned. The sofa had split seams and tears on both the cushions and mattress. The windows did not block neither noise nor light. There was black mold spores growing in the shower, and the bathroom had leftover reminders from previous lodgers. The beds were saggy. Our family found it gross and uncomfortable. The only upside is that it is very close to the center of town and the main tourist attractions, and there are restaurants and groceries right around the corner. In all, we'd rather pay a bit more next time to get something better maintained and child friendly.

"Best for independent travelers"
Great for those travelers who want to come and go as they please without the bother of intrusive hotel staff. Nice sized apartment with clean rooms in a building that is a bit worn, but close to many attractions (Edinburgh Castle and the start of the Royal Mile are about a 1/2 mile away). We found the rates reasonable for what you get. The neighborhood does look a bit run down and sketchy at first glance, particularly at night, but we had no problems. We had a room in the back and it was very quiet even during the height of the festival season

Great location with easy walk to all major tourism spots. Well located on bus routes with stop outside door. Staff extraordinarily helpful and willing to take our bags up the (steep) stairs to the third floor location and bring them down when we left. Be warned its an older building with no lift although room was spacious and well equiped. If older you should advise them of this so they can book you on lower floors. We would go back there anytime.

"Convenient and Clean"
I picked Edinburgh Holiday Apartments because of the central location to the Royal Mile/Edinburgh Castle and for the very reasonable price. The apartment is very close to the main Edinburgh attractions. They apartment is very clean and convenient with everything you need including a washing machine. The owner/proprietor was very friendly and helpful. The beds, however, were not very comfortable although we were able to sleep without much difficulty. There were 4 of us - 2 on a double bed and 2 on a couch bed. The double bed was ok but the couch bed was almost unacceptable. There was an extra twin bed next to the double bed that would certainly work better for a family of 3. Also be advised there is no elevator and to get to the top apartments there were several flights of stairs. Overall, I would still recommend the apartment if you are looking for a reasonably priced, clean, central location in Edinburgh. Just try to avoid the couch bed. :-) There are some good restaurants and pubs very near by.

"Edinburgh Visit 2014"
Overall we were very pleased with the Edinburgh Holiday Apartments. We certainly knew going in that it was NOT a 5 star experience, however, we were looking for a good comfortable location in the Old Town area of Edinburgh that was within walking distance of major attractions. Our apartment was spacious, comfortable and clean with all of the household amenities for a more lengthy stay.

"A place to call home while vacationing in Edinburg"
My initial reaction was uh-oh. It is not much to look at from the outside But, the apartment featured 2 "very" small bedrooms and a combination sitting room/kitchen. Once settled in the apartment was comfortable enough for our 4 days in the city. It actually felt more and more like a home away from home the more time we spent there. Certainly not as fancy as an expensive hotel but the rooms and linens were very clean and being on an upper floor was pretty quiet, just the usual street noises in a busy city. The kitchen was great for small cooking needs and preparing tea, etc. There was even a clothes washer. It was a comfortable walk to the Grass Market area and the new and old towns.

"Close to city center and Edinburgh castle"
They so not provide any services, so e.g if you use your towel no body will replace it the next day. Moreover since the hotel is close to the city centre it's very noisy at night. The kitchen and the flats are quite clean but the stairs and entrance are in desperate need of renovation.

"So handy for all of edinburgh."
It was a quick taxi from Waverley station. We were met at the apartment by a lovely young lady and brought to our apartment. Second floor, looking out the back of the building. Nice and quiet. It had everything we needed for a weekend looking around Edinburgh university. Fully fitted kitchen, a double and a single bed in bedroom, nice lounge. TV was acting up something with signal. We would used it again. Nice and convenient.

I stayed in 2 bed room apartment with my parents and would definitely stay the same place when I visit Edinburgh again. It's a great location, only 10 minutes walk (in slow paste) to Edinburgh Castle and the old city area. The apartment was super clean and the water pressure was very good. The heater system was fantastic making the room warm whenever I wanted. The staffs were kind and helpful.

Otherwise , these apartments are very practical for an adventurous older family , children over 10 would be much better off then our little 3 1/2 girl.

Stayed for 4 nights. It may looked a bit of old building from the outside, but you will be surprised when you get inside the room. It really looked like a home with 2 rooms, a kitchenette attached with a living room. Everything is clean! Easily accessible if you want to go Prince St or George St as there is a direct bus across the apartment. If you want to go to the palace or castle, there is also a direct bas which you have to walk further up on yr right to the bus stop. Lots of cafe around the apartment.

Good stay location within easy walking distance of all major attractions. Clean, friendly, big enough for the family (mum and Dad plus 3 kids). Free wifi, nice small kitchen. Only problem was the double glazing and the number of outside noise that woke us all up a couple of times per night. Apart from that enjoyed our stay and we have rebooked for feb and march

Lisa contacted us from the very beginning of our reservation process to give us all the information we needed to make our stay more enjoyable. She even arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport. The apartment is in a really good location, close to all the main attractions - Edinburgh Castle was only a 10 minute walk! The apartment is really nice, lots of space, very clean. Eddie gave us a map and showed us all the different places to visit, also great recommendations on restaurants. He was very helpful with our travel arrangements back to the airport and kept our luggage for us until it was time to leave for the airport. Tesco Express, bus stop and eating establishments all just a few steps away. Very convenient, highly recommend this apartment and the lovely owners :)
