Great location for getting out and about, only a 2 minute walk to Princess Street. Room as overlooking the main road which was a but rowdy until around 3am but it didnt really bother me. Car parking was an issue, not so easy to get a place to park on the street, they did offer discounted parking in a fairly close by multi storey but it was 10 minute walk away. Room was great, very cosy and would stay again

Overall, our stay was satisfactory. It is quite an uphill walk to the old town, but manageable since there were lots to see around. The apartment was just a few steps away from restaurants and the shopping area. There was also a convenience store close by. It is also very safe because they lock the entrance at night and could only be accessed by the tenants through their keys. Our unit was spacious and had complete amenities-- laundry machine, kitchen equipment and utensil, etc. It could be quite noisy in the evening, though, since there were bars just below one of our units. I would definitely stay in this apartment again but will request for a higher floor so it wouldn't be too noisy.

Lovely room, but let down by poor cleaning”

The room was lovely: excellent size, well equipped and in a good location (a wee bit noisy at night but that's to be expected in this spot!), lovely welcoming staff. However it was very clear that the shower had not been cleaned properly (either not WELL or not at all) in a VERY long time. Mould growing on the tiles that came off when wiped, the shower head was covered in scum and mould, there was hair on the shower door.... bits of scum were falling off the gaps between tiles... the toilet roll holder was broken off the wall and just hanging there. It made you wonder what else hadn't been cleaned... It's a shame because other than that it was a great stay. And finally: because of where the apartments are located, in the morning there was a substantial pile of vomit on the outside doorstep that you had to avoid when going in and out. Not the fault of the property, but suggest someone should check in the morning and do a quick hose down. The vomit was still there after 10am.

Not for us ”

Parking was a 15 min walk away @ OMNI but staff give you a discount ticket so cost us £13 instead of £22 for 24hrs parking. You get a key with a fob for both the security doors downstairs so nice & safe. Rooms not ready until 1400 even though check out is 1000 & only a very small staff toilet to change which they allow you to use but we just put our bag in our room & cleaner let us change in room. You pay £128 you expect to get your room. Room was dirty especially the bathroom & only 2 chair to eat @ table & wardrobe doors don’t open as bed is right in front of them. The bed isn’t a double or king, it’s 2 bases pushed together with a very hard mattress on top. NOISE - the nightclub noise is awful & doesn’t stop until almost 0400, they even put the bins out. We were right by reception so had the door opening & closing from people coming & going not to mention the tanks refilling each time you used the toilet or ran water (which isn’t cold if you want a drink & no bottles of water are given). The room was stinking on arrival & freezing when we got back as window had been left open for the smell. We wouldn’t recommend or stay again & you can get better. They also take £250 off you before you even arrive if a weekend.

Very noisy through night”

Ideally situated and just okay for the purpose of a short stay certainly not 4* accommodation. There was make shift work carried out in the shower and a collection of dust on the lampshade. Kitchen facilities were superb .On arrival had to make numerous calls to be able to get into the property. Reception very small and the ear plugs on the desk speaks volumes as very noisy outside until early hours (04.00 hrs) then the traffic started and in a studio where the windows would not close fully

This was sold as having a carpark and doesn't, It is a 15min walk away and costs an addition £14.20 per day extra. There are no members of staff there. The room was very poorly heated and had no sound proofing to stop all the noise from the street. It is stated that the room had a sofa but didn't have one. The TV wasn't tuned in. There was no wardrobe in the room as shown in all pictures

Worth the value”

Excellent place to stay with everything needed well-equipped- comfortable bed, clean bathroom of reasonable space, full kitchen with handy utensils, lovely sofa and tv. There is a Sainsbury and M&S nearby within 5 mins walk. Many choices of restaurants and bars around as well. Waverley station is about 15 mins walk if with luggages. The second night of our stay we found the housekeeping staff forgot to change the towels, bathroom rubbish bin and prepare a new roll toilet paper. We told the staff and the problem has been immediately solved. The only con is the bar downstairs was loud even until 4-5am (even on Monday). But we were all exhausted every night when in Edinburgh since it's an amazing place with lots to explore, wouldn't be too big of a problem. Another recommendation apart from the hotel itself - there is a café nearby "Urban Angel"- turn right when walking out of front gate of The Spires and walk for 10 secs. Be sure dnt miss its egg benedict with spinach.

The only thing is the parking facilities not available, but the staff gave the guidance how can we park our vehicle. Also with the discount card, it cost only £ 26 for 1.5 days. Worth it. 5.

The apartment was great. Everything you need to cook and wash. Staff were amazingly helpful rushing to our aide when my sister had s freak out with a wasp in the lift! If i could say anything to be improved would be comfort more homely sofas and a bigger tv as it felt a bit too student accommodation rather than a living room. We spent all our time in the bedrooms as the beds were so comfy. Brilliant stay.
