“What a great week we had!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from Edinburgh having spent a week in Room 5 Picardy Place and what a great week we had. The main purpose of our visit was the Commonwealth Games so staying close to the rail and coach network was key and Picardy Place was ideal; it is also adjacent to the tram terminus which was great for transport to and from the airport. The bonus for two of us was that as members of Virgin Active gym we could use the Virgin Active gym almost opposite.

It is handily located for walks into the centre and for more scenic hill walks e.g. Arthurs Seat, which has some great views over Edinburgh.

The apartment itself was very clean, modern looking and spacious and the 7 of us (4 Adults, two 20 year-olds and a 15-year old fitted nicely into the 3-bedrooms. Room 5 is on the 3rd floor but we had no difficulty walking up the stairs. The lounge area was great because we could all relax together comfortably after a long day trekking round Glasgow (for the Games),

We felt the apartment was good value for money at a time when most hotels had bumped their prices up because of high demand.

We enjoyed some great weather in Edinburgh and most nights were hot so sleeping with windows open made it more comfortable but this had the disadvantage of being disturbed by the noise of revellers nearby; there was plenty of competition between us for the portable fan!.

The Wi-fi was very handy also.

Thanks again for help in making our week so great.

“Fantastic Contemporary Apartment in Central Location”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I have just returned from a girls weekend at these apartments and I would highly recommend them. Their location is excellent, situated just 5-10 minutes walk from Waverley train station and Princes Street and are directly across from the Playhouse.

The apartments themselves are very clean, bright and everything feels new. Apartment has two bathrooms with showers which came in very handy with 7 girls getting ready for a night out! Living room / kitchen area is also very impressive with nice views over Playhouse.

Owner Giovanna was very helpful and always responded timeously to my emails which was great. Giovanna also let us into the apartment early which was great as it allowed us to drop off our bags before heading for Tigerlilly afternoon tea! Great service!

Overall, I would definitely return and highly recommend.
