Great location and hotel staff but...
The staff were absolutely amazing -- friendly, supportive, and very, very helpful. The apartment was nice and large and comfortable -- though in some places a little ragged around the edges. It was just off the High Street and close to the major attractions and tour bus stops. The hotel situation is unusual in that the apartments are mixed among normal rental apartments, so there are clothes drying outside and other signs of everyday living. My biggest concern was that it was a steep hill down from the High Street, and the close (alley) leading to Tron Square wasn't very appealing. I wouldn't have felt comfortable walking there after dark. I can't say enough good things about the staff, though.

Good, but check precise location & photos
We were initially a little disappointed as our apartment was advertised as being "On the Royal Mile", however it appears that is used loosely: we were led about 50m from the Royal Mile to the dirty back of a building by large rubbish skips and up two flights of stairs through a dark and unsavoury building interior to our apartment which overlooked the busy and noisy South Bridge. First impressions were not good. A bus stop is right outside the window and I was woken during the night by idling busses shook the glass in the window. Passengers seated on the top deck of the bus looked straight into our windows. However the apartment was spacious, clean, warm and in pretty good condition. It grew on us. It didn't quite live up to the images in the photos, and when we picked up the keys were were told this was one of the better apartments. Therefore I would advise anyone to ask (1) where precisely is the apartment; (2) what are the actual pictures of the apartment. The prices was OK, but we didn't think we were getting the best value for money. We would look for alternatives in future.
