We booked into a two bedroom apartment. It was located in a part of town that left much to be desired. If you are a chain smoker and would like to live among such others, than this is the place for you, if not run. We stayed there for all of 5 minutes and came out gasping for clean air....

We made the mistake of only booking 3 months in advance for a central Edinburgh apartment. Upon arrival at their Queen Street offices we were informed that there had been a double booking and we would be staying a mere 15 walk minutes away. 20 minutes in a cab later we arrived in what can only be described as a...

We got to Scottish Apartments at 6 Queen Street looking forward to our stay in a Luxury Apartment! We were placed in room 6 which is in the attic up three flights of very steep stairs with no lift available. When we finally got into the room it was basically a bedsit with a microwave oven for the cooking facilities....

I booked a 3 day accomodation package with Scottish Apartments. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to cancel my accomodation and look elsewhere. The cancellation policy allows for an admin fee to be deducted, which is acceptable. However, trying to get the balance back is a non-starter. I've sent numerous e-mails, even phoned but to no avail....

Trip Advisor is great but you need to check it before you book. I got dumped for a corporate booking and had trouble getting a refund. If I had read up on this website first I would have never booked with them. Trading standard are yet again being informed Please read TA before you ever book anything

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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 was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
