Certificate of Excellence
We’ve created an award-winning collection of luxury, serviced apartments that combine stylish design with all the benefits of home, where the great city location is the cherry on top. They are most definitely apartments done distinctively. Like home, but better. We’ve put some serious thought into designing apartments that not only encourage easy living, but look stunning from floor-to-ceiling. Whilst you kick off your shoes and settle in, we’ll quietly be beavering away in the background to ensure that all the important little details are taken care of – in a nutshell, it’s the best bits of hotel service with the added freedom of apartment living. Lateral City’s eclectic portfolio of apartments includes three distinct and rather magnificent properties. There’s Merchiston Residence, set in a leafy residential quarter, a short stroll from the city centre, 15th-century Old Town Chambers, just off Prince’s Street, and our newest jewel, The Edinburgh Grand, smack-bang in the beating heart of town. Unique and idiosyncratic in character they ooze the uncommon, but all share our passion for stylish design, contemporary features and ultra-modern technology. We don’t define your stay, we’re simply here to make it that bit more amazing.

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.

We would have loved to have stayed at the Old Town Chambers. We found it online and fell in love with the exposed brickwork, floor to ceiling windows and room styling. We had booked a signature apartment but on further research it appeared that not all signature apartments have

This is a great place to stay. It has a prime location just off the Royal Mile, and hidden away in the narrow streets of Old Town, it’s very atmospheric yet modern in its design. Staff are also super friendly, and the rooms are very clean.

Hello there, If you ask your driver to drop you off opposite saint Giles cathedral, in front of Real Mary King's close, coming down Warriston Close there are only 12 steps down and 9 steps up before entering our reception area. Most of our apartment are in the main building and serviced by lifts. Please book directly with us to make sure all the special requests are highlighted correctly and your allocation matches your needs. Have a wonderful day. Kindest Regards, Guest Relations Manager
