    Myself and my partner have stayed in these apartments numerous times. I love them!! The apartment is very modern and in an excellent location. We've tried to book a few times since but the apartments are always fully booked. So get in there quick !

    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but
    its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep
    streets suggests this was not always the
    case. Today, it’s mostly visitors,
    tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and
    pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled
    streets. This is the place to get a feel
    for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town

    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    I know someone previously asked this question but they received no answer so I thought I'd put it out there again. Are there washing machines in the apartments or in the building and if so how do they work? Coin operated? Locked laundry? Thank you.
