Spacious and lovely

Pros: Space and modern facilities
Cons: Lock system, darkness of apartment
Location: Fantastic location, right opposite St Giles Cathedral.
Lovely modern apartment, we booked the 2 bedroom signature suite. Much bigger than I expected and lovely bathrooms, decoration etc. Beds were comfortable too. They kindly left a bottle of wine for us upon arrival. Only issue was the lock system is automated and broke down so we were locked in our apartment for 30 minutes until someone came to fix it. Makes me wonder why they haven't got an override system in place for this - it's dangerous if there was ever a fire and the system went down. There are some stairs to get to the property which could be problematic if walking is difficult for elderly etc. I was very impressed with the apartment and would opt to stay again.

Great apartments in the heart of the old town

Lovely apartments with great modern utilities . This is the 2nd time we've been here as a family of four. This time we chose a smaller apartment with some old features but just the same lovely features as the big one. I really like how you get an access code instead of a key. We'll be back.

The hotel met our expectations and more they had upgraded our room to a penthouse which was so the best room we have stayed at! The staff where so helpful and asked to look after our luggage Til our train home! The amenities we did not expect where wonderful!

Fantastic stay

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed 3 nights and found the location to be fantastic and the staff very helpful. Only possible way to improve would be to have rug grips under the rugs as it was quite slippy with a small child rushing about. Will definitely return!

fantstic hidden gem

Booked as a package for a weekend break Staff were exceedingly helpful on arrival (we were early but they let us leave our luggage and delivered it to our room ready for when we returned) We were allocated Apartment 10 which overlooked the side of the court yard (there was outside noise from the pub accross the way but I don't think for a city centre it was excessive) All my friends and I were taken away when we opened the door on how well the apartment was laid out and furnished. It was exceedingly spacious over 2 floors with all mod cons and appliances and utensils in the kitchen area available (even a washing machine) should you need them The downstairs has one of the largest shores I have ever seen and the spacious upstairs mezzanine area houses a bathroom with bath. This is definately a place to stay as even if you were a family or couples there would be plenty of space the location is good as from Waverly station if is a short walk (up 139 steps if you're feeling energetic) or a gentle stroll about 1/3 up the royal mile We all said we could not find fault with our apartments and we had a fantastic time and would definitely stay there again.

Superb apartment & location!

The Old Town Chambers are in a fantastic location literally a few steps off the Royal Mile in a secluded courtyard. Our apartment was very well-equipped, very comfortable and quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful including providing us with cards for deals at a couple of restaurants. The location is excellent, with the main places of interest (the Castle etc) within a few minutes walk. Would highly recommend these apartments would return if we come back to Edinburgh.
