1 Parliament Sq (apt 10), Royal Mile, 300 metres from Edinburgh Castle

Location

Directions

There are three options to get from Edinburgh airport to the city centre, all take approx 30-35 minutes. The main rail station Waverley is approx 250 metres from the apt.

1. Edinburgh trams, approx every 8-10 mins (Sunday 12-15 mins), right outside terminal, the nearest drop off point for the apt is the Princes St stop which is approx 500 metres away. Cost 8.50 pounds for adults and 4.50 pounds for children for a RETURN journey.

2. Airport express bus, every 15 minutes right outside terminal building, drop off point on Waverley Bridge approx 250 metres from apt. Costs 7.50 pounds per person for a RETURN journey.

3. Taxi, many can be found right outside the terminal building and will cost 15 - 20 pounds for a one way journey. However a taxi will drop you off right outside the property you have booked.

Parking

Street parking is enforced Mon Sat 08:00 - 18:30, it is expensive and inflexible as you can only stay in one spot for a few hours.

There are many city centre car parks to choose from, you can use these for a short time or full days which cost approx 16 pounds or more or enter the postcode of the property you have booked into this website http://www.parkopedia.co.uk/

Alternatively if you do not plan your use your car much, (Edinburgh is a relatively small city centre and is much better explored on foot), leave your car in a well lit residential street outside the restricted city centre, the whole operation should take approx 30 minutes. Alternatively, the return journey in a taxi from an unrestricted area (approx 2.5 km) would be less than one days parking charges. Information on the best areas for this can be provided.

Servizio eccellente per puntualità e completezza di informazione.

L'appartamento è molto bello e ben tenuto. Inoltre, si trova in una posizione magnifica per visitare la città. Sarebbe tutto al massimo, se non fosse per un dettaglio dovuto, credo, a ragioni di spazio: i lavandini dei 2 bagni sono improponibili per un appartamento di questo livello. A parte questo, lo consiglio vivamente a tutti quelli che volessero godere di una permanenza in questa interessantissima città.

Excellente situation donnant sur Royal Mile mais un peu trop bruyant en soirée.

The apartment was amazing, fantastic location, plenty of space and beautifully appointed. We had a lot of trouble getting to the apartment because we had a hire car and it is right in the middle of the Royal Mile where they block off part of the road. Our lovely host on the day was very patient with our late arrival and gave us a warm welcome. One suggestion would be to have a better run through the working of the apartment and the appliances. Also parking is nearly impossible and when you can find it, it is very expensive at around 28 pounds per day. We believe we could have been given a clearer warning of how awkward it is to find parking.

Product

The apartment was in a spectacular location, well decorated and very spacious. You need to go up 3 flights of stairs as there are no lifts but they are wide and not really a problem. You have such easy access to the Royal Mile. I would highly recommended this apartment for 4 adults, particularly if you don’t have a car to worry about.

Overall

A fantastic apartment in a fantastic location. We stayed for 3 nights with 2 children (4&6) and the apartment was more then big enough for them to play in while we waited to head out and explore. We ate out most of the time for convenience but the Apartment was more then suitable if we had chosen to cook up there. The meet and greet was simple and fast with no messing around or hold ups.

The apartment 10 was excellent, very high standard of finish, very good attention to the small things, spacious and very clean.

There are 3 downsides; 1. the way guests are introduced to the apartment and the required time table for entry was a bit clunky, 2 if travelling by car things get more complex, e.g. parking and drop off of bags at 1 Parliament Square and 3. the noise from the Royal Mile was a concern for Apartment 10. If a bit of noise, the arrival arrangement and some creative thinking about parking [ use Omni, 10min walk away but getting out of the parking station with the road construction will be a challenge for the GPS] then Apartment 10 is excellent and good value for money.

My daughter and I planned to stay for 5 nights. We were welcomed by a very friendly member of staff. We arrived early but were able to leave our luggage while they were still cleaning. The apartment is as good, or even better than the impression you get of the fotos. It feels like home from home. Clean, large, comfortable, very comfy beds and they thought of every little detail. On our last day we found out our flight home had been cancelled due to bad weather. The replied straight away on my e-mail asking if we could stay longer. They managed to turn around another booking so we could stay in our apartment. Thanks to Dale! We give the apartment and the organization a 10+.

We loved the apartment. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The beds were great and you couldn't ask for a better location. Overlooking the Royal Mile and watching the buskers from our windows. We will definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Edinburgh.

Overall

The apartment itself is a SOLID 5 star. <br />However, Apt 10 faced the Royal Mile and it was VERY NOISY until 4 AM - all 3 nights. The bathrooms, beds and HUGE space was the best in our 2 week trip (Bath, Cotswolds, Scotland and London). If you can't do stairs you won't want this apt. either.<br /><br />The location is ideal - during the day, just not at night. I bought earplugs and took tylenol pm and was able to sleep.

Our response

Thank you for leaving a review.  It is very unfortunate you experienced unprecedented noise pollution, especially to 4 am every night, which is extremely unusual and not a typical experience at this property. The property is right in the city centre and therefore some noise pollution might occur at times  The property does have working wooden shutters and curtains to mitigate any potential noise.  Otherwise thank you for indicating the property contributed to a successful trip to Edinburgh.

This is a lovely apartment, furnished and equipped to a very high standard. I gave extremely short notice when I requested the spare bedroom be made up and this was done for me without any problems. I would highly recommend Edinburgh Self catering.
