large apartment style. close to things.


This would be an excellent property if you were staying for a longer period and wanted to be able to cook etc. Apartment style. They need to prohibit smoking. That’s the downfall.

good price and location, very spacious apt


Booked a large 2bedroom apt. It was very spacious with two baths, a separate living room and kitchen. Great location right by museum of Edinburgh and across street from canongate Kirk. Less than ten min walk to holyrood palace and parliament, and probably ten to fifteen minute walk to the mound, national gallery, etc. Also about 2 minute walk to a tesco for groceries, etc. overall very nice. Only small complaint would be that the carpet, etc wasn't in the greatest condition but no big deal.

nice for family.


Good if you are staying for a couple of days. Lots of space but could use updating. Two bedrooms and bathrooms , kitchen, dining area and living area. No air conditioning but does have a washer dryer. If you want to park there you should reserve parking in advance.

a hote and an apartment


This place was great! It is like a studio apartment complete with a washer/dryer. The location is amazing! 5 minute walk to the Royal mile, and to the Holyrood park, yet is tucked away on a quiet street. You can easily walk to all of the main sightseeing spots, from the Holyrood Castle all the way to the Edinburgh Castle. The Holyrood park is beautiful and provides stunning views of Edinburgh. If you have a car, parking needs to be coordinated ahead of time with the hotel, otherwise there is a parking lot a couple of blocks away for 17 pounds a day.

very clean, convenient.


It was like staying at a time share condo. Very convenient in location, facility. We cooked our own breakfast and dinner.

quiet, nice staff, but wifi is terrible, useless


I checked in the hotel late at night and things went smoothly, however I couldn't see the wifi network at first, then finally got on but seemed to struggle doing even the most minimal thing (like getting my emails) I had several hours worth of online meetings to attend and really needed dependable internet, so I spoke with the front desk staff first thing in the morning. It became apparent that they simply don't have a hotel-worthy network, it's a single routeur in the manager's office. As a guest, you basically don't have internet access, no matter what they say, I tried at several hours of the day and from various points in the hotel, the connection is so slow that even loading the homepage of can take several minutes. And there's no "premium internet" option or anything (I would have gladly paid for it), this is basically false advertising, this hotel simply doesn't have internet for guests. I've been to third world countries and I know internet isn't always fast when you travel but this is simply shameful. I spend 30% of my time traveling and in the past 5 years this is the only time I would simply say the hotel doesn't really have internet. (No wired connection eu I've had to spend hours in the lobby of a different hotel for my online meetings, I wish I simply had stayed at that other hotel instead.

excellent and quiet


Slightly off the beaten track but still central and well located. Very spacious, and, best of all, quiet. No AC, but this turned out to be unnecessary.
