Fabulous 8.6 From 94 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Very close to the University of Edinburgh
I can't imagine a more convenient location for proximity to the University of Edinburgh. The room was spacious, the wi-fi worked great, and there was a delicious Malaysian restaurant across the street!

Large Apartment
We loved the location of the apartment, it wasn't quite in the main area but only a 15 minute walk to it and many other local businesses around us, including a nice looking restaurant we didn't have time to try. The man who let us in was very informative and helpful. Showed us how the car park worked and where everything in the apartment was located. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. I noticed there were some stains on the roller blinds and on the walls but the rest of the apartment was clean. We would definitely stay at VIP again.

VIP accommodations in Edinburgh
Very nice, clean, quiet accommodation that is conveniently located. The lack of on-site staff means that attention to concerns is difficult to obtain. However, the staff was friendly and the check-in process was easy.

We absolutely loved the location! We could walk everywhere we wanted to go. It was perfect for our family. The bath rooms could of been a little cleaner but we would stay there again.

Simply fabulous!
We had 3 fabulous days at this wonderful apartment at 28 Simpson Loan, Quartermile development Edinburgh. The apartment was spotlessly clean, quiet, very well appointed kitchen with washer/dryer, ironing board/iron, great towels, very nicely decorated, free wifi, tv, tea/coffee and uht milk in fridge (nice touch when you arrive late with nothing to drink in the morning), on site secure parking (small additional fee), stunning view up to Arthur's seat and all within 5 minutes walk to the Royal Mile or 10 minutes to Princes Street. Sainsbury's supermarket and Starbucks on the ground floor of the building which is really convenient. Lots of fabulous restaurants within a few minutes walk like The Tower or Ondine. Just a perfect end to our European trip in Edinburgh. Of all the places we rented this was by far the best! Marc was really friendly with lots of good advice! We will definitely book again and highly recommend it to all!
