Excellent location”

A hold for the amount of 50 was placed on my card even if we stayed there for like 1 night. They said it will eventually be given back, not sure when. Good thing I got extra to cover it, it would have been better if this was set to my expectation, prior to check in, imagine if someone didnt have any extra funds for the hold. Thank you! otherwise it was a great stay, great facilities!

What a beautiful apartment with everything you need for a peaceful and restful stay. Staff went out of their way to welcome us and helped us with some delicious Italian food. So central and yet surprisingly quiet at night here, you will enjoy a great night's sleep on their fluffy cloud beds! Fantastic value for families. Amazing. Thank you 👍

Great accommodation, well presented & practical with small kitche. Some aspects showing wear & tear but this does not detract. Friendly staff. I stayed here a number of years ago and found the location ideal (quiet with little traffic noise). The only issue was trying to locate it - certainly not the easiest place to reach by car!

Great location, walking distance from Arthur's seat, Dynamic Earth & high street. Very clean with a microwave, fridge, cutlery, etc. However, don't opt for breakfast - it's a ripoff - cheese sticks, jam packets, biscuits & bread. Walk a block away to the nearby Sainsbury instead.

The fire/smoke detector system they have goes off quite easily due to the sensitive design. When people shower and don’t keep the door closed or open the door right after the shower, it goes off. It went off 4 times between 7am and 9am. Would not recommend staying here

Great Aparthotel and Value for Money”

This aparthotel is located about 10 minutes walk from Waverly Station which is convenient. The room is spacious and there are full kitchen facilities for travelers who wish to cook their meal. Tesco Express is just 2 minutes walk from the hotel which makes buying grocery very convenient. The aparthotel is also close to Holyrood Palace, Arthur Seat, Clayton Hill and St Gilas Cathedral. My only suggestions are to replace the cracked basin in Room 603 and do something to reduce the sound when stepping on the walkway floor. It will be good if the Aparthotel can provide umbrellas to guests during raining time. Overall it is a good aparthotel and I would recommend the aparthotel to travelers, especially for family.
