Barely 3 stars! Definitely not 4 stars (imho)
General comments: We travel frequently throughout the UK and this room was definitely not 4-stars standard in our experience.
I would have just barely given our room 3 stars. I imagine the quality of rooms is highly variable, so beware.
The good: Really friendly staff. When they got my wife's personal review after our stay, they responded that day and offered an unspecified discount if we stayed with them again in the future. I found the bed comfortable, although the sheets didn't really fit. It was worth the £55 per night we paid, but I wouldn't pay more. And, you could hardly beat the location. The bad: The bathroom was TINY and the shower dirty. A lot of broken things and furniture. Cleaning tools (mops, hoover) were stored in the open. And lots of stairs. Their policies are not only unfriendly but they feel downright hostile and unwelcoming.
Based on the friendliness of the staff I would give them a second chance -- if the price was right. But I could not recommend it in a city where there are many excellent alternatives.
The apartment was gracious and well maintained.
Our hosts Harvey, Patrick and Paul met our every need including a lift, laundry service (since our washer was broken) and storing our luggage. They could not be more welcoming and added greatly to our visit to Edinburgh.
Fab time in Edinburgh..... :)
Had a great stay here and would definitely recommend to friends and would use again.
Only thing I would mention would be the stairs..... there are a lot of them...!. My apartment was on the 3rd floor and after walking up the hill from the station and then from the office and then the stairs was bit knackered once I got inside, but got easier as the week went on!. Harvey from the Office was great, friendly and welcoming :)
Everything was really good & I have no bad things to say.
The highlight though were the two guys who show you two your apartments who were really helpful and looked like the The Proclaimers" doing a part time job. Well done everyone at StayEdinburgh
Lovely big rooms.
Very clean and location perfect. The staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating. 100% recommend. Thanks guys
Excellent value for money
Excellent location, room could do with a little TLC
Lovely location and excellent for all attractions, but paintwork/bath panel/ carpets/ duvet covers all need a little TLC to make up to the 4 star rating.
Lovely touches such as free wifi, and tea cakes with coffees/teas/washing machine powder.
Great location great stay

Royal mile apartment
We enjoyed the stay at the apartment.
Good central location in old town of Edinburgh with view of castle. Few suggestions to consider; add additional glazing. Sash windows had drafts. Remove dining table and chairs and replace with coffee table, add heated towel rail and shaver point in bathroom and finally oil lock for entrance to apartment close.
Student Accomodation ?
Unlike other apartments that I have stayed in whilst in Edinburgh, this was well below standars.
Flooring was poor quality laminate which was bubbling dues to spilt liquids. Windows were old cast iron framed one had been gaffa taped to prevent it being opened. It was not possible to alter the height of the shower head . The heating was poor electric convectors and the place smelled of damp. The external corridor was dismal and shabby. However the bed was very comfortable.
