Reviewed 15 March 2017

The building is beautiful and the apartment had amazingly high ceilings and original features however the conversion of the room into an apartment did not seem to be quite in keeping with what is a lovely Victorian townhouse. The bedroom was quite cramped and smaller than expected. Also the lighting system was fiddly - especially in the dark. On the...

Stayed for 3 nights in Feb 17, in the Luxury Family Apartment 6, on 1st floor (up 1 flight). Compact but well appointed and comfortable. Fridge, oven, microwave, washer / dryer, and kitchenette. Really a studio with 2 beds, rather than an apartment. 2nd bed up some stairs, over the top of the kitchenette. Website photos are wide angle, so...

Great apartment from Lateral City. We have stayed with them before in the city and loved the flat so tried another one. A bit further out of town, but only about ten minutes by bus. In a quiet part of Edinburgh so nice for a quiet hideaway from the bustle of Princess Street or the Royal Mile. Great quality apartment...

The basement 2/3 person flat I rented was spacious and great value for money, with everything needed for full self-catering. 10-15 minutes by bus to all central Edinburgh central attractions, and great eateries nearby. A good location too to avoid too much of the tourist scene, if that's your choice.

We loved the location of this residence. There were pubs, restaurants, coffee houses, and shops all within 5 minutes walk. The flat was modern and clean. Would definitely recommend staying here and will do so again when I return to this city. Loved that there was cleaning service every day if needed and they supplied amenities such as coffee, etc....

Immaculate accommodation in a great location. We stayed there for 2 nights and the apartment was fully serviced after the first night. Tesco a 2 minute walk away so handy for buying food if you don't want to take advantage of the many cafes and restaurants on Bruntsfield place. 30 minute walk to the Royal Mile so all in all...

Excellent classy apartments so clean and central. We had a great time and would definitely recommend staying in the apartment again. Had everything you need and more. The apartment was very central and walking distance for everything and if you want plenty buses to choose from. Many thanks

Clean, comfy and modern room with all the amenities. We were in awe. The little touches like the smell of flowers in the reception room makes the place even better. Loved it overall and would recommend this to anyone visiting Edinburgh. Tesco Metro is just around the corner and the bus stop is next to it. Excellent excellent excellent.
