“Comfortable and Ideally Located”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in March 2014

We were looking for a place that was conveniently located, comfortable, and affordable, and this was definitely that. The apartment was clean and well-furnished, and due to the great location, we could just as easily eat out as whip up something in the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable, the heating worked well, and the noise from outside was minimal. Also, the wi-fi was especially appreciated. The stairs getting to the apartment might be a challenge for some, but it's pretty standard for buildings in this part of town. Overall, the apartment was exactly what we hoped for.

Very please to hear you enjoyed your stay at the St Giles apartment and it contributed to a successful tip to Edinburgh. The stairs can be a challenge but it does save you from going to the gym whilst on holiday.

“Stunning Location”
Reviewed 29 February 2016 for a stay in August 2015

This gorgeous, beautifully-appointed flat has stunning views up the Royal Mile and down to Princes Street. The compact kitchen is perfect for whipping up quick meals, and there is an abundant selection of quality restaurants very close by. We especially enjoy St. Giles Cafe, which is right downstairs. The authentic feel of the flat combines with the beautiful light that pours in through the massive windows to make every moment feel special. We also appreciated the wi-fi and television.

“Great location and incredibly comfortable!”
Reviewed 3 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This apartment was really wonderful! It's very comfortable, and the location is great, being situated right on the Royal Mile. You are right down the street from Edinburgh Castle and a bunch of other must-see places. Old Town is full of really good places to eat, too. The third-story walk-up would make it difficult for some, though, so if you have some trouble with stairs, this isn't the place for you. The fire place is such a cozy feature! I really loved my stay!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 11 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This apartment is in the perfect location on the Royal Mile.
We didn't really know about the area so we took a chance. Everything is in walking distance.
The apartment is well equipped for laundry, and cooking needs.
The bath tub /shower combination isn't photographed, but there is both.
Great value, close to shops, pubs, cafes and all the Royal mile sites.
I would recommend this.
Making the connection with Dave was also very smooth, and accommodating..

“Good apartment, good location, good people”
Reviewed 8 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The apartment is perfectly located by St. Giles with easy access to all the attractions of the royal mile. It is well appointed with all the things you'd need and expect for a self catering city break. Dave was great meeting us and showing us around. I got a late booking so the value was excellent. Wifi worked well, with the windows closed street noise was minimal, heating was fine. There isn't really much at all to fault it on. If you don't do stairs there are probably better options and if you don't like bagpipes but do want your window open perhaps there are alternatives more fitting. All in all a very good place to book.
