Great location & fabulous apartment
Right on the Royal Mike close to all the action - easy to walk to any of the tourist areas in Edinburgh with some great eateries near by. The apartment looked great & had everything we needed for our stay. Great idea to have coded key pads so did not have the hassle of keys but only downside was that the code stopped working on the stairs so had to take the lift, I was a bit worried we would be locked out for the night! I did ring for it to be sorted but it still did not work.

Why bother with a hotel?
Easy from start to finish. There is no reception or anyone to greet you so there is no waiting around, just enter the last four digits of your phone number for entry code and away you go. Same code works for the lift and room access as well as the entry gate. It looked lovely online but looks stunning in real life, everything is so clean and modern and has obviously been finished to a high standard. The bathroom is a perfect size, the bedroom too. The living room looked small on first view but for what you use it for its actually perfect. Couch is lovely and comfortable and you can sign in to your Netlflix on the TV. The most amazing room by far is the kitchen however. It has absolutely everything you could possibly want and every surface of the units opens to reveal something, no space is wasted whatsoever. You could cook or bake anything you wanted and would be great for longer stays. The only niggle i had was that there are a lot of symbols on the cooker for different settings but nothing to explain what they were so it was a bit trial and error to get the right one. My biggest problem was with the safety doors- the one for the living room was fine but the bedroom was incredibly hot even with the temperature turned down to 10°. Eventually I wedged the door open with cushions to let some cool air in but it did mean I struggled to sleep for a couple of hours before I thought to do it. Overall though an amazing stay and I would highly recommend staying here over a hotel.
