10/10 Exceptional

Great location and Value
Excellent room, with washer/dryer and kitchen. Small Gym was used. Helpful front desk.

8/10 Very good

Immaculately clean but tired.
Appartment was spotless but in definite need of refurb & decoration. Ie no blind at bedroom window (had to improvise with a towel), walls were marked and scuffed, cupboard doors hanging at an angle in kitchen. However, having said that, everything worked well, although both showers were pretty feeble. Would def stay again as was so clean, staff were lovely and was handy for city centre.

Convenient location
Great location - next door to the parliament, hollyrood palace and about 15 min walk to the castle. Spacious apartment with everything you may need, but very dated and requires proper cleaning. Staff is friendly.

It was great having a kitchen and washer/dryer! After 10 days traveling, we were able to wash some clothes and start fresh. It's a great hotel and the location is perfect for adventures in Edinburgh - walk to Royal Mile.

6/10 Good

Good central location, needs refurbishing
Good location, clean, very well equipped kitchen area including dishwasher and washing machine. However, decor very tired, and bedroom and bathroom both overdue refurbishment with heavy wear apparent in both areas.

8/10 Very good

Location was great; walking distance to everything of interest in Edinburgh. Rooms were well-equipped as small apartment-style flats. Our only criticism was the cleaning service, which we only received once in the 7 days we stayed. I think they were short-staffed, as most hotels/bars are these days. Overall, very nice. Would stay again.

This aparthotel is well-situated near the end/bottom of the Royal Mile. There’s a small grocery store around the corner and of course the restaurants and shopping of the tourist district. Its location deep in a close makes it a good place for cabs to pick up—not always easy on the Mile. Across the street is Dunbar’s Close Garden, a beautiful place for a stroll or a picnic. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and we were greeted with a large selection of breakfast cereals, bread, milk, juice, coffee, tea, butter and cheese. Or small kitchen had almost everything needed to prepare simple meals. Unfortunately we were there during the heat wave, and although we had a brand new aircon unit in our room, we were told the installation wasn’t complete and it didn’t work. The mattress was quite uncomfortable, as were the chairs, but the small sofa was fine. Like everything in Edinburgh, there’s a pervasive sense of “damp”. Our room was no exception, but that’s to be expected. The room does have a washer/dryer combo, but it held very little and after 8-10 hours of (noisy) cycling the clothes still weren’t fully dry. Service is only scheduled on checkout but as we were there for an extended visit they were happy to come during the visit if we made a request the night prior. All in all, I’d call this a decent 3 hotel. As an “Aparthotel” it lacks things like a restaurant, lounge, gym or laundry but the accom was clean, bright and fine for a holiday.
