Other hotels to consider

Spacous modern apartment clo...

The modern apartment was large enough for two people with a well equipped kitchen. Clean and secure. Shower over the bath but adequate water pressure. Room cleaned each day. Apartment close to Holyrood parliament buildings, the Royal Mile and other major tourist attractions. Can recommend this apartment if you prefer self-catering....


Very good accommodation



Spacious well equipped apartments in edinburgh

The apartments are well located for walking to The Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace. The apartments are clean although the carpets could do with replacing. There was quite a bit of noise echoing around early morning from the courtyards below. Would definitely stay here again...


Well thought out apartment with all our needs cate...

On arrival, the receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. We found the apartment roomy and very clean. The kitchen was well appointed and would support a much longer stay in Edinburgh. Instructions for heating were clear and easy to use. The bathrooms were clean and equipped with toiletries. We found the beds very comfortable and enjoyed a good night`s sleep. The sitting area was tidy and comfy. We thought this was very good value and would book with Aparthotel in future...


Excellent hotel

From a slightly dowdy exterior I was very surprised by the quality of our room. Stayed in a double double apartment on 6th floor. Very spacious and airy with separate kitchen and a dining area. Bathrooms (1 en suite) had been newly renovated very well and the stay was very comfortable. Plenty of provisions for breakfast and teas/coffees. Will certainly stay here again....

loved staying at Holyrood Apartments, walking distance to everything, only thing I did not like was the pillows on the bed, really hard and could not sleep, but this was the second time I have stayed at Holyrood Apartments and I hope to be back a third time....


Would definitely use this hotel again

The hotel had all we could ask for and we had an enjoyable and comfortable stay. The location is excellent and the old town is within easy walking distance. The staff could not have been more helpful and are a credit to their employers. We will return to Edinburgh in the near future and we will be booking this hotel again and will recommend it to family and friends....


Happy to return

Though I found it a bit tricky to find, this is a gem of a hotel: clean, roomy, and helpful staff. We will be back again on our next visit to Edinburgh!...
