We stayed in a two bedroom flat for two nights. We had a nice pleasant stay. Check-in was quite quick, but make sure you be there before 8pm( staff available at site only till 8) It was quite convenient to commute to city centre as it was centrally located. Buses and taxis were readily available. Only downside was there was no washing powder in the flat, we would suggest the management provide some washing tablets for their guests as an added gesture( at least a few at the reception would be good). Staffs were very welcoming, building looked well maintained. Our children were really happy with the spacious apartment. We would definitely come back this year. We had a very good stay with hotel apartments and applauds to the management for the wonderful service they deliver!

We stayed here feb 9th till feb 11th Although I cant fault the accommodation in any way as the flats were lovely and well equipped with everything needed but when it comes to all the extra charges they put on for things thats a different matter when our group leader as we where there on a hen weekend was checking she was talked into taking extra keys for each apartment as we where a group we had 3 flats so they just handed her a bundle of keys and at the time there was a lot going on round about us so she just trusted in what the receptionist said and took the keys without checking which I suppose was the biggest mistake on her part we were also told on our original booking that it was a 500 pound deposit for the group but when we arrived they wanted 500 pounds per flat we were very lucky that our leader had her credit card or we would have been stranded but back to the key situation when we got over to the flat we decided just to take one key per flat as we where doing everything together at all times anyway so on the rest of the keys where put in the bedside drawer until we where leaving on the sunday morning but when all the keys where handed back they insisted one was missing we went back across searched from top to bottom everyone emptied the luggage and checked we definitely never had the extra key so they charged our group leader £100 so if your accepting more that 1 key to a flat on group bookings please count your keys because I honestly dont think we were given it in the first place and there charges are very unrealistic so beware guys dont get burned like we were

This apartment was booked for my wife and I and our 6 month old son for three nights. We understood the 7 days cancellation policy but a few days before travelling up from Yorkshire the weather became terrible and there were several Police warnings for people not to travel. I rang the apartment and was told there would be no refund whatsoever. I informed them that it was not safe to travel with a baby and we may travel up a day later. They were pretty uninterested. On the day of travel there were still several red alert travel warnings so we made the decision not to travel. I spoke with who were helpful and informed me that the apartment was available for the following weekend at a slightly increased cost. called the apartments and got nowhere either so I rang them myself. I spoke to two managers (one called Shamil) and explained that we would be happy to pay the extra for the following weekend or even pay for three nights and just stay two, but they weren’t for budging!!! The first manager told me that they couldn’t change the booking on the system, which of course is complete nonsense! They then admitted that it was down to revenue and they would lose out!! Well, yes they would, however would it not be better to try and help people rather than just try to always maximise profits?!! Now I’m not so naive as to think that we are the only people not able to travel and lose out, however surely people come before profit, otherwise there is no business!!! A little bit of give and good will would have gone a long way and this review would have probably got a 5 and we would probably use them again. Even thought it could have been changed, but the matter was out of their hand. I HOPE AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE READ THIS REVIEW AND AVOID BOOKING HERE! THE ONLY THING THAT IS OF INTEREST TO THESE PEOPLE IS MONEY!!

Not the original booking, allegedly due to refurb, but the later free check-out and free parking balanced things a bit. The apartments are clean and tidy and very warm and well enough equipped. Well supplied Tesco 2 minutes walk, 24hr filling station across the road and bus stop outside or only 20 mins walk to Edinburgh city centre, makes for an ideal location. Friendly and helpful staff and good value.Have stayed with Hotel-e-apartments previously and they remain friendly and helpful. Additionally, with a superb Rugby result (24/02/18), it was a great weekend stay.

Awesome apartments..clean and well maintained. Not far from the Centre of Edinburgh, friendly staff will be back some time soon! Wish we were staying longer and we had known about this place before..Highly recommended!

Nice apartments, great location. Stayed their couple of days for business. Well maintained and professional staff. Good bus connections to city and restaurants and bars nearby. Car parking comes with a charge, expected for city location

When looking for a last minute hotel room for a quick break to Edinburgh, we found this little gem. For the same price as most family rooms we were presented with a nice central apartment. Large living area and kitchen with all white goods.(We were just there for a night so didn't used them) 1 large double bedroom and a twin room next door for our 2 girls. The bathroom was large and clean with an over the bath shower. The shower was a bit weak but got the job done. The parking which was an extra £18 per night might sound steep but it is a central location. The front of house staff were very polite and accommodating. Definitely go back.

We loved our stay at the apartment. It was nice and tidy . The view from window was cool as our room was on fourth floor. This location is quite central from many stores . The kitchen was fully equipped and bathroom and toilets were very clean . Heating system was brilliant . The only pitfall was the parking which is quite expensive - £18 a day but you won’t find many free parking places nearby so we didn’t have much choice . Wonderful stay over all and we will use Canon apartments again .

Advertising as ‘luxury’ is overstated. However, clean, warm & reasonably appointed. Sparse catering/crockery equipment. Needs blackout curtains to block garage/street lights. Hard mattress. Cracked washbasin.

Stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and it was clean, cosy and very central for walking up in to the center of Edinburgh. M&S supermarket, attached to a petrol station, right across the road. My only slight issue is that the onsite paring is charged for at £15 per night which given what you are paying for the apartment I think is being greedy. £5 per night would be more than fair.
