We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights here.
It was perfect for what we were wanting, and actually spent 2 nights 'in' cooking for ourselves!
The bed was very comfortable... more

We spent a long weekend at the apartment and were impressed by how clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated it was. The owner was extremely helpful and welcoming - nothing was too much trouble.
The apartment is 10 minutes walk from the Castle and the Royal Mile and there is a nice park practically on the doorstep.
Although we ate out quite a bit, the Sainsbury's Local store located just round the corner was very convenient.
We'd thoroughly recommend a stay in this apartment.

We had the good fortune to choose Quartermile Luxury Apartment, and indeed it was! First and foremost, Eddie Harper (who owns the flat) was extremely accommodating and helpful! He provided lots of information regarding Edinburgh, maps of the apartment's location, and met us in person at the carpark. The apartment was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. It was thoughtfully designed, with the all the amenities one could ask for, including wifi, washer/dryer (that really works), all cooking needs, and a shower - that we have rated the best in all Great Britian! It is in wonderful location, close to all - within walking distance of all major sites and shopping. We loved looking out the windows towards the old hospital and watching the antics of the birds in the trees, we felt as if we were in a treehouse. We would definitely want to stay here again on next trip to Edinburgh, a city that we found enchanting.
