First of all I want to say the Shahid (The manager of the rental) is a fantastic person to work with. He's accommodating and gracious in the way he try's to convenience you. He called and checked in to ensure everything was good to go in the rental. This is the second rental we've worked through him and his properties have always been extremely nice.
I had made a mistake in the dates of booking and he was gracious enough to allow the change as good as he could, and he refunded the night we weren't able to make. It was a very considerate gesture. He also allowed us to put our luggage in the rental a little earlier so we wouldn't have to carry it around.
The rental is right on the Royal Mile. You can literally open the windows and look up and down the Royal Mile. It's right in the middle of the mile and you can get to either the Castle or Holyrood within a very short time of walking.
We were concerned that the noise might be an issue, but if you shut the windows and curtains then it blocks out almost all noise.
This rental has a large living area and very nice bedrooms. Although we didn't use it, the kitchen was very well laid out and extremely clean.
The apartment was warm, inviting and very easy to relax in, if needed.
The only thing that any prospective vacation renter should be aware of is the stairs! You must take 3 levels of stairs to get to the apartment and once inside you have a short stairwell to get down into the apartment. If that's not a problem then this apartment is a fantastic place to stay/
I'll be recommending this property to anyone who asks me where to stay in Edinburgh.
We had a wonderful stay at Parliament Square apartment, which has an amazing location right next to St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile Edinburgh. The apartment is extremely well fitted with everything you could need and it has a real upmarket feel. We were in Edinburgh for our sons wedding and the apartment was a good backdrop to some nice pre wedding photos. The superking bed in the master bedroom was a bit firm for my liking but may well suit others, the windows are double glazed, we didn't have any outside noise disturbances. There was good quick responsive contact from the owner and our security deposit was returned within days. We would definitely stay here again.
The apartment is in a superb location, overlooking the Royal Mile, five minutes walk from the castle. A selection of bars and restaurants are literally downstairs. The railway station and the new town are within easy walking distance.
The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable. The lounge is huge and the bedrooms are a good size. The fixtures and fittings are modern and of a good standard.
The only slight negatives are that you have to carry your luggage up several flights of stairs, although these are wide and not steep, and if you have a car you won't be able to park it outside.
This lovely flat was perfect for our week attending the Fringe Festival! The windows overlook the Royal Mile, and while we could see and hear the street performers from the living room, the bedrooms were more soundproof, offering a quiet night's sleep. We found it easy to come and go to performances throughout the day, and retreat to the flat whenever we wanted a break from the crowds. Could not have asked for better accommodations for Edinburgh.
Perfect Location very central lots of Restaurants near by, walking distance to the Centre. Apartments very spacious, spotlessly clean, fully equipped, warm and comfortable. Ideal for a group or families. I will certainly book it again and will recommend it to my family and friends,
