Perfectly good for a visit to Edinburgh during the Fringe and as a family we were glad of separate rooms and the washing machine. The place was clean and the location could not have been better (out of the hotel, left, under and arch and straight onto the Royal Mile). There is a charge for WIFI which seems churlish and...

A great review for the Holyrood Aparthotel and my thanks to this reviewer - but I was sorry to hear you were disturbed by the seagulls - one of the disadvantages of living so near to the sea. Leon Kiteley General Manager

Three generations shared 2 apartments which were well appointed. The kitchens had everything we needed including dishwasher and washing machine powders and plenty tea, coffee, milk and sugar which was a bonus. Super location within walking distance as we were in Edinburgh for the Military Tattoo. Our two young grandchildren were delighted with it all and enjoyed the DVDs from...

My spouse and two teens spent 4 nights at Holyrood apartHOTEL at the peak of festival season in Edinburgh. The location was fantastic - at the foot of the Royal Mile just a block or two away from Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament buildings, which meant you were conveniently close to the sights and sounds of the Royal Mile...

My husband and I were very happy to stay here during our five-night stay to Edinburgh - we would choose to stay here again... We have visited Edinburgh regularly in previous years and so know the city well. We were in Edinburgh for the festival and at a time when accommodation prices are at a premium, however, our cozy, modern...

Reviewed 16 August 2013

The hotel's biggest asset is its location, which is just off the Royal Mile. It couldn't be more convenient to everything. The rooms in the apartment are simple, very modern, very clean, not large, but large enough. We stayed in a 2-bedroom. Some of the rooms can be noisy, we were by a car park, so there was some intermittent...

A great review and very informative. We do indeed have air conditioning in some of our rooms so please do ask at the time of booking if this is something you may require. Although in Soctland we only need it for about 4 days per year...... Leon Kiteley General Manager

The two bedroom apartment that we booked has everything to look for except they're all in compact size. By that I mean just enough space in the shower to carefully turn around, bedrooms' area are literally for bed and perhaps just about for one more small suitcase. We must also be careful to walk the floor as it squeaks so...

Reviewed 11 August 2013

This was a nice little apartment type hotel. The accommodations were convenient and included a small kitchen and a small washer/dryer in one (which was really only big enough to wash and dry the smaller items). It had two bathrooms, but both were in the hall (no bath in the master bedroom). We had two bedrooms and a pull out...

A wonderful review - many thanks - and one that encapsulates the greatest benefit of a serviced apartment for families or small groups which is the savings to be made when booking a two bed apartment which can hold up to 5 people when compared to the equivalent cost for two or three hotel bedrooms.

This was our second visit to the hotel during the festival. It is great value for families as we had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for far less than the equivalent 2 room booking at a similar standard hotel. Added to that you also get the space of a sitting/dining/kitchen room. The rooms are very well kitted out and very...

We had a two bedroom apartment during the Edinburgh Fringe. It was clean, fresh, and had a really good choice of breakfast supplies - all kinds of cereals, plus orange juice, yoghurts, ample coffee, tea, milk, sugar, a large loaf and a small hill of jams. The rooms were clean and bright, the bathroom stocked with fluffy white towels and...

Many thanks for such a positive review for the Holyrood Aparthotel and I am sorry to learn that you were troubled by seagulls. This is not a typical occurrence but does happen occasionally - one of the drawbacks of being just 2 miles from the coast. Leon Kiteley General Manager

We really appreciated having a separate living room and kitchen to call home during our several day stay in Edinburgh. There is a grocery store close by and we enjoyed sandwiches at the Foodies at Holyrood just around the corner as well as their wonderful scones for breakfast . The location of Holyrood ApartHotel is very central if you don’t...

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
