“In the heart of the action”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Small but comfortable and well equipped. The location could not be better, particularly in festival week. It is a little noisy, especially with the tattoo crowds letting out at 11.00 pm, but there is a real buzz about that part of the Royal Mile. There is always something going on. Loads of restaurants and pubs are close by as well as dozens of festival venues and other Edinburgh attractions. Very handy for Royal Mile whiskies as well if you like a dram.

“LOUD but nice place”
Reviewed 19 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

2/5 Ladystairs is very nice and clean but loud. You are right in the heart of the action and the bedroom windows face the Royal Mile where you can hear things at all hours of the day and night. If you are a light to moderate sleeper, I would recommend staying elsewhere. I used ear plugs, a noise maker and had to finally resort to sleeping pills but I'm a light sleeper. You can hear everything coming from the street (music from the bagpipes, drunken people at 3AM, etc.). I doubt you can beat the price and this place is all one needs but wish we wouldn't have stayed in the heart of the action. Live and learn.

“Small but perfectly formed and positioned”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed here for the 11 nights for the Commonwealth Games and commuted to Glasgow. We were delighted with the flat and its position in the very heart of the old town at the top of the Royal Mile. When we did have any time off from watching sport we found it really convenient for many pubs and restaurants. Would love to return one day and simply chill in Edinburgh. No hesitation at all about recommending it.

“Loved this apartment....”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Wow, what an excellent apartment, located in a position to die for. Overlooking the Royal Mile, this is a fantastic base that is near just about everything - in fact, it would be quicker to list what you are not near!. The medieval building and its surroundings are everything we hoped they would be. Loved this apartment, loved Edinburgh!

Liked best: Whats not to like, although staying in a medieval apartment overlooking where Robert Burns lived, and opposite where Deacon Brodie lived was pretty cool.
Liked least: Having to leave......
