Great apartment in central location

Located just off the Royal Mile, this two bed apartment was comfortable and spacious with a well equipped kitched - and two bathrooms was a bonus. Cleaning staff were flexible with the daily room service too. Recommended!

Clean & Comfortable

We like the hotel. Rooms were clean, staff friendly, location good & the furnishing comfortable. If Wifi was included that would make it a better deal... 5 pounds per device too expensive.

a great hotel but

This hotel was great. The apartment was comfortable with everything that you could want. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. The only downside was that the toilets wouldn't flush for at least half an hour after they had been used. This was a real nuisance as there were 5 of us using the apartment. We reported this to the staff who said someone would fix it the next day but that never happened. They did give us the option of changing rooms but we had all unpacked and liked the apartment, also we expected the problem to be rectified quickly, so we didn't move. With hindsight we should have done.

The Dome on George Street was magnificent. We ate there and ended up not moving on anywhere else. It's a fabulous venue and is worth going just for a drink to experience it. The staff were wonderful.

Holyrood ApartHotel January '14 short stay review

I could not fault the staff, location, facilities etc at this excellent place. The staff were extremely helpful, courteous and professional throughout. The location is perfect as a 100 yard walk from the front door leads you onto the bottom of the Royal Mile and within walking distance to many excellent locations, bars and restaurants. I would highly recommend the apartments and fully intend to return.

Comfy hotel close to major sites

I would recommend this hotel for the following reasons: 1. Communication was excellent. E-mail responses were prompt. Requests were dealt with without any hassle. 2. The rooms were clean and adequately furnished. Bathrooms had enough space. (We had 2 bathrooms in our suite.) 3. Location is excellent. Many bars and restaurants nearby, not to mention the sites and stores for grocery and souvenir shopping. If I would nitpick, I'll have to say one minor thing. The carpets in the floor and rooms could use some shampooing and cleaning.

Great location and price!!!

I stayed with 2 others over New Years, and it was cheaper than staying in a hostel! And I am so glad we did! We had a kitchen, a loungeroom to relax in and it was very comfortable. and especially over new years it was a really good price. The location is great and close to everything! I would definately stay here again!
