“Central, quiet and ticked the boxes”
Reviewed 5 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Fully equipped bright spacious flat with all facilities required. Central location. Secure car parking included. Easy access by foot to city centre, Arthur's Seat, Royal Mile and West end. Ideal base during our daughter's graduation

“Clean and comfortable, central tourist location”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Tolbooth apartment made a comfortable home base for a few days, and Dave was very accommodating. Most everything is provided - coffee, a French press, milk, tea, towels, soap, etc. - and the location lets the first-time visitor to Edinburgh get a sense of it. The apartment is close to bus stops and the Waverly train station, so getting around the town (and even the country) is not a problem. The location is very tourist-oriented, but you only have to go a little bit out of your way if you don't want that.

The only thing I wish I had known is that - at least at the time I was there - the Royal Mile starts emptying out around 7 or 7:30pm, and by 8pm it's a ghost town. You should also look at good places to eat before you go.

“Good location”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Agree a great location. Just off the royal mile and close to all the main attractions. Very clean modern apartment well furnished with all amenities we needed for two people. Ground floor means less privacy, maybe nets or blinds would assist as we kept the bedroom curtains closed all day due to being close to people walking by outside, but convenient when arriving as very close to the lift from the underground car park for transporting luggage. Included car parking a bonus in Edinburgh and very close to Waverley train station.
Very easy online booking and friendly welcome when we got here. Deposit refunded quickly with no problems.

“Location , location, location”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

the best thing about this flat is the location, as it is very close to almost all the important sights in the city, including the amazing park of Holyrood Palace, where you almost feel like you are in the Scottish Highlands - and only a 15 minute walk away from the flat! You can also walk up to Carlton Hill very easily, and the train station is a 10 minute walk away, so perfect for day trips to Glasgow etc.

The flat itself is quite small, and in my opinion more suitable for two people though it can sleep more, but it's compact, well-equipped,clean and bright. It wouldn't be the best choice for anyone who rates their privacy very highly, as it is on the ground floor and there are public spaces outside the windows of the bedroom and living room (so you can't walk around in the nip!) but that is the only small downside. Stuart who showed us around was extremely friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay.

“Fantastic apartment... great location!”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Well what can I say!

The apartment was absolutely brilliant! It is located close to a number of attractions (Castle, Royal Mile) and has great access to the both the New and Old Town.

Every morning, I got to wake up to the sound of bagpipes playing in the street below!

Jennifer was very helpful and actually emailed to make arrangements for her to drop the key off (I had forgotten in the excitement)

Just one thing to note....after a long day of walking around exploring the stairs are challenge, so make sure whole party is fit!

I think this reviewer has got the Tolbooth apartment confused with another they stayed at in Edinburgh, it has no chairs as it is a ground floor apartment and it is also in a very quiet location approx 100 metres off the Royal Mile.
