“Excellent in every way”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Edinburgh is a superb city for a break and this apartment is an excellent place to stay to explore it. It is a five minute walk from Holyrood Palace and the Scottish Parliament, at the foot of the Royal Mile. Then, a further 15 minute walk up the hill and you're at the castle and Old Town. There are frequent 'buses, though, if you need them to reach Princes Street. We didn't!

The apartment itself is compact and warm, clean and very well-equipped, also very quiet. The bed is very comfortable and there is plenty of bedroom storage. Parking on the complex is no problem, and the car stayed put between arrival and departure (four nights).

Value for money; comfort; cleanliness; convenience - top marks!

“Excellent location, quiet, convenient and comfortable”
Reviewed 13 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The accommodation at Free Parking, Royal Mile was perfect for a stay in Edinburgh. The apartment was well set up with a very comfortable bed and adequate space for a couple . Being on the ground floor was an added bonus as there were no stairs to carry luggage up. The location was very quiet and convenient as it was within walking distance of the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace and Arthur's Seat. We only used our car when travelling out of Edinburgh for day trips. Parking was easy to find in the complex. We also greatly appreciated being rescued and led to the accommodation when we got lost on our first day. Excellent service! The only suggestion I would make would be to have a larger table for dining.

Thanks for the great feedback. Yes the ground floor is good when you have heavy luggage and being able to walk everywhere from the apartment is so convenient. Paul was happy to come and rescue you when you found yourselves lost due to road closures on your way here. Being local he knew the back roads and shortcuts to lead the way. I agree the bistro style dining table is a bit small so I have just ordered a new larger table. Thanks again for your review. Lynn
