“Very nice and affordable”
Reviewed June 17, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Very nice location and the apartment was clean and well furnished. The main en suite bedroom got stuffy and we could not figure out any way of opening the window. With no AC, it was a little uncomfortable. We had to sleep with the door open so that we could get the air from the open windows in the other rooms. Otherwise, it was very nice.

“Great place. Definitely recommend”
Reviewed April 13, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

great place from which to explore the city. Clean, Warm (and believe me, Edinburgh was freezing) Beds very comfy (pull out sofa bed not so, but when are they ever).
loads of room for the five of us. Seemed very secure, has a lockable gated entrance to the street. milk,tea and coffee waiting for us, nice touch, and allowed us to leave our bags in the hallway for a couple of extra hours for a last look around and a meal before going to the airport. very good all round .definitely recommend this apartment.

“Very nice apartment”
Reviewed April 16, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed at the Edmonstone Suites last week for Easter break for a few days. We arrived in Edinburgh about 9am and since the apartment had not been rented out the day prior, we were allowed to have access to the apartment that morning. That was so appreciated as it allowed us to have a few hours nap, grab some groceries and then get started in the early afternoon. Our "plan b" was to wander around Edinburgh in a daze until the apartment was ready. Our contact at the rental agency was quite clear that if the apartment got a last minute rental for that day, then they would not be able to accommodate us - but we lucked out. We had a few hiccups - the wifi went out on day 2 but I figured it wouldn't kill my son not to be online (and there was a ton of public wifi everywhere we went), so I emailed the rental company but did not follow up with a phone call and it was out for the last 2 days of our trip. Also, I wanted the beds in the second apartment to be set up as two twins but they were connected as one bed. It was pointed out to me that I booked the room as "double" (which I mistakenly thought meant two people). I was told that it would cost 30 pounds to have this rectified (beds taken apart and new linens put on, although I asked if new linens could be dropped off and we would deal with taking the bed apart and making up the beds ourselves), which I thought was a bit steep, but since we were only there a few nights, I had my sister and mother sleep in the same bed. Just be aware of that and be very specific. Ultimately, it was totally my fault and otherwise communications with the rental company was fast, efficient and prompt. Apartment layout was great and offered a lot of privacy for the 5 of us (the kitchen and living room both have doors that you can close) and as everyone mentions, was very well equipped and well located. Saintsbury grocery store was about a 5-7 min walk away with all the groceries that you need (bring your own grocery bags or pay 5p each). I was a little concerned regarding the bars which were located close by. They can get a little rowdy on a weekend, but the apartment's location in the courtyard made the noise virtually non-existent. We left the apartment according to directions and I promptly received back my entire deposit about 2 days later.

* Be aware that for some reason, in the UK, home brew coffee machines like we have in the States do not exist and the closest you will get will be french press coffee or Nescaffe instant. The apartment had a french press but I have to admit, I found that embarrassingly difficult to get over while on my vacation...

Thank you for finding the time to leave a review for Edmonstone and there were many positive aspects to your stay. The confusion on bed set up was very unfortunate. Preparation of the properties is sub-contracted and any changes to a property preparation once a booking has commenced does unfortunately incur a fee for their time & laundry costs.

“Perfect”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Excellent apartment, very well equipped and very clean. Some lovely finishing touches i.e. tea, coffee and milk available on arrival. Perfect location, although some late night noise tho expected being very close to the Grassmarket.

“Great apartment”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Had a really pleasant stay here. The place was spacious, well kitted out and good value. The location and area is fantastic. My only complaint would be the late arrival fee, it seemed a little unfair as there was only one flight we could take and we informed well in advance.

“Very comfortable, clean and convenient apartment.”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We hired the apartment for a 3 week stay and found it very comfortable, clean and convenient. The accommodation was very useful with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one on-suite, this enabled us to have various family members (including 3 young grandchildren under 5) and friends join us at various times during our stay. The kitchen is nicely equipped with all that is necessary for self-catering. Having said that the apartment is well placed for the many restaurants and bars in Edinburgh, so it is also handy for dining out. The apartment is situated in its own quiet courtyard and has direct access through French windows to the courtyard, the only downside is that this courtyard is used as a smoking area for all the residents of the surrounding apartments and so the cigarette smell can be overpowering at times for non-smokers.

Thank you for finding the time to leave a review for the Edmonstone apt. It is always good to know that there were many aspects of the property which contributed to a successful visit to Edinburgh. I can only apologise for your experience with selfish smokers in the communal courtyard area, unfortunately we have no authority to stop this taking place when it occurs. However it is pleasing to know that it was not to detrimental to your overall experience.

“Perfect location, nice stay”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Nice apartment located in the heart of Grassmarket, convenient to the Castle and to the nice pubs and clubs around the area. It is situated in a quiet "close" so you can sleep without noise. The apartment is well equipped and was perfect for the 5 of us. Definitely the right choice!
