Travellers' Choice
We’ve created an award-winning collection of luxury, serviced apartments that combine stylish design with all the benefits of home, where the great city location is the cherry on top. They are most definitely apartments done distinctively. Like home, but better. We’ve put some serious thought into designing apartments that not only encourage easy living, but look stunning from floor-to-ceiling. Whilst you kick off your shoes and settle in, we’ll quietly be beavering away in the background to ensure that all the important little details are taken care of – in a nutshell, it’s the best bits of hotel service with the added freedom of apartment living. Lateral City’s eclectic portfolio of apartments includes three distinct and rather magnificent properties. There’s Merchiston Residence, set in a leafy residential quarter, a short stroll from the city centre, 15th-century Old Town Chambers, just off Prince’s Street, and our newest jewel, The Edinburgh Grand, smack-bang in the beating heart of town. Unique and idiosyncratic in character they ooze the uncommon, but all share our passion for stylish design, contemporary features and ultra-modern technology. We don’t define your stay, we’re simply here to make it that bit more amazing.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We travel a lot, and I can think of this place as one of the best hotels I have stayed in. The location is top notch. cannot get any better than this on royal mile. You are in the center of it all! One caveat is AC! some rooms do not have AC and if you are sensitive to heat, that could be a problem. But the front desk was kind enough to change our room to accommodate our request for AC. The staff were amazing. We will definitely come back if we return to Edinburgh.

Stayed for one night as a couple on Saturday night in an open plan apartment. The apartment had everything you could possibly require, and more! The complimentary Prosecco and chocolates were a lovely touch. Full size toiletries in the bathroom. Central location on Royal Mile so fabulous selection of bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Lovely welcoming staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out. Special thanks to Ashley.

My husband and I stayed for a night in one Deluxe one bedroom apartment with an outstanding view. It had a great balcony where you can enjoy a cup of tea looking at Princes Street. The apartment itself is modern, very clean and well equipped. The concierge team is wonderful, very approachable, making us feel very welcome. I definitely recommend it.

If I could give 10 stars to this hotel I would. From the minute we walked in till we left, the staff was amazing as well as the hotel. Our room/alcove was very clean, comfortable and spacious. It was perfect in every way. I can't say enough about the staff, though, as they helped us a great deal with our lost luggage issues. If we ever get back to Edinburgh, we're definitely staying here.

Lovely apartment and great location. All 4 members of our family had a great time and the amazing view from the rooms certainly made the trip even better. Just need to improve the lighting system in the rooms, so complicated!

The staff was very amicable and pleasant. They alone deserve 4-5 stars. The apartments are reasonably well decorated and the ambiance of the stone structure in the rooms is great. However The beds are very hard low quality mattresses. The major drawbacks are if you like to sleep at night and are anything other than a very heavy sleeper this is not the place to stay. The room we had was directly under a Mexican restaurant and there is little to no sound proofing. It was horrendous. We moved to another room the following night but as this establishment is right on high street and the room was on ground floor the resellers going from pub to pub screamed and sang just outside our windows until 3am. During the day, the building directly outside is under construction so you need headphones to drown out the noise in the day. Lastly there is no restaurant/ breakfast included in the price which is considerable. You can get a breakfast in the nearby Luken booth for a price.

Dear G P, Many thanks for taking the time to share your review from your recent stay with us. The team will be delighted to read your comments about them. I am very sorry that on this occasion your stay was impacted by our neighbours and external events and guests. We work very closely with them to ensure that they are aware of their responsibility regards noise pollution. Unfortunately, temporary scaffolding on another building is out with our control but I acknowledge this also had an impact on your stay. Your comments regarding bedding have been shared with our housekeeping management. I am sorry these were not to your satisfaction but assure you that they are checked and maintained regularly and far from the perceived low quality. We have 74 apartments at Cheval Old Town Chambers nestled among the closes, all appointed differently and we are certain we can find the perfect one for you. We also offer breakfast inclusive rates in partnership with our onsite neighbours, Luckenbooths. I have reached out to you independently to follow up with you directly. We very much hope to welcome you back again soon. Wishing you a wonderful festive period. Kind Regards, Ben Currie Operations Manager

Great location and friendly staff. Great bar and restaurant in the same space. Only downside is the maze of rooms (take some breadcrumbs!). You want me to write more words? I'm done. No really that's it. Done.
