Had to get a taxi from the train station, go to an address that they gave us,pick up the key for the apartment, while keeping the taxi running then off to the apartment. A wee bit hassle but not terrible. The building is lovely and modern, and we were on the sixth floor but there was a lift. First impressions were great, modern, clean and very well equipped. The heat was an issue, crazy in Scotland!!! But the ceiling to floor windows were wasted as we had to pull the blinds down to try and cool the apartment down. We had a fan which we had to plug in at night. We had a one bedroom apt and it was perfect for our stay. It took us roughly 15 minutes to walk into the grass market, so very well placed for sight seeing and shopping. There are shops within 2 minutes of the apartment and restaurants, if you don't want to wander into the city, overall would recommend the Quartermile apts . Only issue was the beautiful cream bedroom carpet had a big dirty orange stain on it!!! Not nice..
