A perfect apartment in a perfect location- would stay again without hesitation. Destination Edinburgh customer service was excellent, couldn't ask for more. Exceptionally clean, modern and well equipped.

Amazing apartments, all different and very tastefully done. We had 2 large bedrooms and a huge kitchen dining room and lounge with TV, radio etc, ideal for a family stay. A real home from home in an historic setting. All very modern and minimalist, the georgian propoerty had large windows which meant that the poartment was flooded with light. Fabulous...

I couldn't praise this place high enough. A group of 20 of us share 2 apartments and every one of us had a fantastic time here. The apartments are well maintained fantastically located and the staff couldn't be more helpful and professional to deal with. I would highly recommend this place to any group travelling to Edinburgh great value for...

Walked in and the entire family said "Wow". This place was larger than my home in the states. Hugh kitchen, living room, and big bedrooms. There was a grocery store just down the street. It was a short 10 min walk from the train station. Perfect for a larger family. If we ever come back to Edinburgh we are staying...

We stayed in apartment number 4 and it was great. Two bathrooms and three separate bedrooms. Nice kitchen. The only downside with this apartment is that in case of a fire you will probably be roasted since I was unable to find any emergency exits. Besides that little inconvenience it's a great place and we will be sure to return.

Very good service. Before travel, we received travel information and suggestion. Email response was very prompt. I received message just when the flight landed, feeling cared. We arrived much later than schedule, and the staff was very patiently waiting for us. Very easy check in and check out. Good space, excellent location.

A great location in the city centre. Lots of space in the apartment with large beds for every member of the family. We had a great welcome from the host who showed us around. The facilities were great. The only disappointment was the wifi and internet access in the basement which was poor probably because we were underground. Other than...

Lovely huge clean spacious apartment in an excellent location. Front rooms are slightly noisy with Road traffic volumes and the people above can be heard bouncing round. However great place and would return again if visiting Edinburgh :)

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the heart of the City Centre on York Place, our apartments are ideal for larger groups and families looking for that little bit extra during their stay. A converted Georgian Townhouse, these apartments are all slightly different (keeping with the historic nature of the building) but all to a very high standard. The apartments feature multiple flat screen televisions, many en suite bath and shower rooms, huge lounges in each apartments as well as quality huge bedrooms (towels and linen included). The basement level has 2 apartments and they have a feature spiral staircase leading to the open plan kitchen/dining area and lounge and private landscaped outdoor area. The main door has 4 large apartments that were completely renovated with high quality fittings that really fit in with the historic nature of the building - a few of the lounges are huge and ideal for groups. With Harvey Nichols, Jenners of Edinburgh, and the boutiques of Multrees Walk close by the discerning city visitor can shop in style by day and sample the bars and restaurants of George Street by night. The Castle and the very popular Edinburgh Playhouse are within walking distance. The brand new tram system will take you directly from the airport to the door of our 20 York Place Apartments! ... more   less
