We have stayed at this hotel many years, through it's other names Royal Garden Apartments and Blue Rainbow, but it got run down and the housekeeping was awful so we didn't stay there last year on our annual visit to the Fringe Festival. Had heard it was taken over and refurbished and decided to try it again. All carpet and furniture is new, nicely decorated and kitchen had been upgraded. I had booked a one bedroom apartment with a large bed but we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom #412. The kitchen and living room were lovely, but the 2 bedrooms were small with small beds, we did not sleep well and had to use one bedroom as a dressing room. There was an ensuite shower room, but you would have to weigh less than 130lbs to get in the shower so we both used the main bathroom. The pluses were the bedroom we used was at the back and quiet from street noise and there was daily housekeeping. The apartments are all very different. Always request a room at the back overlooking the garden if you stay here. Overall the hotel is much improved under it's new ownership.

Thank you for your review. It is great to hear that you had a great overall stay with us. Regarding room service, there are multiple food delivery services we can recommend in Edinburgh. There is no private parking at our apartments but plenty of on-street parking as well as a parking garage nearby. Best wishes

Luxusappartment im Zentrum Edinburghs

Posted 20-Jul-2016
Pros: Geschmackvolle Einrichtung, nicht "von der Stange"
Cons: Leider quietschten einige Türen, was besonders morgens genervt hat.
Location: In der Queenstreet im Herzen Edinburghs, gute Verkehrsanbindung. Unternehmungen: Edinburgh Castle, Zoo, Botanischer Garten, Museen, Galerien, Touren
Das Appartment liegt zentral, nur wenige Hundert Meter vom Bahnhof Weaverley und der Shoppingmeile Princes Street entfernt. Vom Airport fährt die Tram, Haltestellen in kurzer Entfernung. Lage an der Hauptstraße, Schlafzimmer nach hinten. Wir hatten ein sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Appartment, das kaum Wünsche offenließ. Einzig die quietschenden Türen waren nervig. Viele Unternehmungen konnten wir zu Fuß machen, das war sehr angenehm. Empfehlenswerte Appartments. Selbstversorgung ok, Küche gut ausgestattet und Tesco fußläufig in 5 Minuten erreichbar. Sehenswürdigkeiten, die man auch zu Fuß erreicht, sind z.B. Edinburgh Castle, Botanischer Garten, Zoo ( online buchen, Pandas nur per Reservierung zu besichtigen ), Calton Hill, Holyrood Palace, Museen, Galerien ( Appartments liegen gegenüber der Portrait gallery ).

Spacious comfy & great location

Posted 28-Jun-2016 on Hotels
We loved the location & the apartment & had a great sleep! Poor lighting above the bathroom mirror just didn't cut it. Also for me, with small hands turning the shower on was impossible without help - lucky there was a bath! Instructions for shower could be better even for those with large strong hands.

Great facility in the heart of Edinburgh.

Posted 19-Jun-2016
Pros: Location, spaciousness, comfort.
Location: It is in the heart of Edinburgh, and close to major sights. Excellent location! Within walking distance to major historical sights.
Very comfortable. Spacious! Great amenities. Nice to have separate spaces for everyone, with a good gathering space. Very clean, and elegant! Excellent location, but very quiet. Hope to stay here again and again.

Great find

Posted 16-Jun-2016 on Hotels
great apartment to spend a few days with my mum and dad. The living room was comfortable as were the beds. Good location,only downside was the rooms were not serviced until very late in the afternoon (after 4pm) when you want to be having a rest or getting ready for going out in the evening. Would definitely use these apartments again though

We have passed your comments on to the Housekeeping Manager and hope to welcome you back despite this. Best wishes

Lot's of space.

Posted 11-Jun-2016
Pros: Location, room size, and staff.
Location: Close to Old Town and New Town.
Easily the largest and nicest space for the money we have ever stayed in. Room 101 was a much larger than average one bedroom apartment with all the amenities you need. Excellent staff and a good location. We were really happy with it and will return there when we get the chance. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place to stay!

Excellent staff! We got in early as the only flight we could get into Scotland from Rome was at 6am, staff kept our bags for us and was able to get the room cleaned so we could check in a bit early. Very good customer service!
