Great family trip

Very happy with our stay. 2 bed en-suite apt. It's lovely to have all that space for a family of 4. Great price, great location, close to playhouse/cinemas on Leith walk for entertainment & George & Princess St. for hitting the sales. You get extra discount showing your keycard at many restaurants. Staff were welcoming and helpful. Apartments were clean and had everything we needed - esp wifi for the teenagers. Our apt looked over Queen St so had a little street noise which we r not used to (living in the country). But it didn't create too much of a problem. During a 2 night stay I wasn't expecting the apt to be serviced so that was a nice surprise (like hotel service!). Would definitely stay again.

Great location and amenities.

The location on Queen Street makes the apartments with easy walking distance from Princes Street, and very easy bus rides in either direction, one way to the Botanic Gardens, and the other to Old Town. All of the amenities (especially Free Wi-Fi, full kitchen facilities) were very nice to have, and the only real complaints would be for one of the televisions (in the kitchen/dining area) that did not get any reception, and and a water heater that would occasionally vibrate and make a sound when heating. Staff was very helpful and informative, and promised to look into any problems.

Good staff, poor management.

The hotel offers standard European sized apartments with some basic amenities. Each room does include a fairly comfortable bed, a bathroom, living space and a kitchen (studios and multi-room units). Our stay was plagued with problems: Staff was not at front desk for check-in, just a sign asking whomever to call a domestic number (not possible for many from out of the country), after waiting about 10-15 minutes, someone finally appeared and we started the process. The second night was cold and we found out that our room had no heat and would need to wait until the morning for maintenance (front desk did offer to look, but we were far too tired). The following day, the boiler was functioning correctly. On night 5, we ran out of toilet paper, had an almost over-flowing garbage can, unchanged linens and towels, so we chatted with the front desk; who informed us that all services were performed on day 7 (we understood it to be efficiency with minimal cleaning, but did expect it to be every 4 or 5 days at most). After our chat, the person at the front desk did bring us fresh towels and a bag of toilet paper. The room was cleaned on day 8, as they were too busy the day prior. On day 13 (a Saturday), there was no hot water available after 15 seconds at any tap, though the boiler was running. We hoped that it was working on heating up the water and had maybe reset. On day 14, we found that the hot water was still not functioning and called the front desk; Alex tried to reset the boiler, but was unable to get it functioning. He called maintenance and guided us to use the gym shower in the meantime. Well, that was no good, as it was even colder and most lights were not functioning. He was eventually able to move us to a neighboring room for the last night of our stay. Original room: 208 - garden view, no freezer in fridge and no hairdryer Second room: 207 -.garden view, a little smaller than 208, missing some utensils and a pot on the stove, has freezer and hairdryer. Do recommend that the hotel perform minor paint and grout touchups in the rooms as well as a quick inventory at the end of each stay, thus enabling them to replace missing items. Do note that you enter on the front "ground floor," but are actually on the 3rd floor.

Great apartment in a great location.

Executive 2-bed apartment on 4th floor overlooking garden. A spacious, well laid out apartment with two double bedrooms and separate living room, kitchen and bathroom. Well decorated and clean. Beds and bedding are excellent and the curtains provide almost complete darkness (if you need a daytime nap!). Kitchen includes all the essentials and was stocked with a nice welcome breakfast pack, plus a selection of various teas and coffee. Bathroom is supplied with toiletries and good towels. This rear-facing apartment wa very quiet, even during the day. Just a 5 minute walk from Princes Street, it's very close to both train (Waverley) and bus stations and the nearest tram stop is around 100m from the front door. There are a number of supermarket chain stores within a 10 minute walk, so restocking the fridge is no problem. It's central location makes it a great base for exploring Edinburgh.

Great location

We booked the Penthouse apartment for the Marathon weekend in Edinburgh. It was a fantastic location, close to the train station and close to the start of the race with lots of restaurants nearby. Very pleased with the apartment, it was very spacious, clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. The only downside was the noise at night from the street below. As the apartment is centrally located on a busy street there can be some noise if you are sleeping in the front bedroom. However, If we are ever in Edinburgh again we would definitely choose this apartment.

Perfect Break

We have stayed in quite a few hotels but this is best so far. loved the apartment with two teenagers was great to come back and chill in home from home , with space to properly relax unlike the confines of a hotel room. The staff were very helpful and friendly nothing was a problem for them. The location was great five min walk from all the main amenities and yet a nice quiet location

Lovely find.

We arrived into a lobby that looked just like it did online to a warm friendly welcome. A proper explanation of everything. The apartment was lovely and clean with an amazing view down queen st. 10 min walk from the royal mile.
