Very Disappointing
Booked 6 months in advance based on location and a format which suited the needs of my family. Received emails on the day concerned that I wouldn't make it to the office to collect the key before everyone went home on Friday. My girlfriend got there to be informed that the apartment wasn't available due to a gas boiler problem. Offered a refund which wasn't practical given the demand during the festival and we'd already flown and travelled into Edinburgh. Re-housed at an older apartment about 1 mile further away. Replacement was tired with signs of wear in all rooms. Window didn't open, TV didn't work properly, leather chair cracked, sofa cover split etc. Did the job though, albeit with a longer walk to the shows we'd booked near to our intended accommodation. The promised partial refund had to be chased 1 month later.

Good 6.0
Great location, room not as pictured
Overall we had a decent stay. Based on the pictures and price we were expecting a little more. Our unit was located in an apartment building in a very student populated area. Our apartment did not have a view of the park as is pictured in most of the photos provided by the hotel. The unit is not as new as is pictured, there was quiet a few scuffs on the walls and some mold in the shower. When we checked in the unit smelled of onions. We contacted the front desk and they were very accommodating and sent someone over right away to clean the kitchen sink which resolved the issue. With all this being said, our stay was still enjoyable. The unit was very spacious and was in reasonable condition. The unit was walking distance to many attractions, e.g. Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland.

This was my third stay at My-Quartermile Apartments. Located in the University area, I've timed it at a seven-minute walk to the Royal Mile (passing Greyfriars Kirk and the National Museum of Scotland). While close to tourist attractions, it offers a welcome calm from the sometimes frenetic Royal Mile. On two previous visits, I stayed in a one-bedroom apartment overlooking The Meadows, which I loved. This time, we reserved a gorgeous two-bedroom apartment. Upon check-in, we were surprised and thrilled to be upgraded to a penthouse apartment. In my experience, these apartments are typically modern and spotless, with fully-equipped kitchens and washing machines. But this, in addition, had an enormously spacious great room overlooking the Meadows on one side, with the other glass wall leading to an enclosed sun room with three exterior glass walls and two doors leading out to the gorgeous rooftop garden with a view of Arthur's Seat. The master bedroom had a wall of windows with a view of Edinburgh Castle. There's an en suite master bath, and a second bathroom off the hallway that has a TV in the shower. The staff are always warm and delightful to work with. We wanted for nothing and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Very good 8.0
Clean, comfortable and quiet on Simpson Loan
I found this apartment, in Simpson Loan on the edge of the Meadows, to be very comfortable as a solo traveller. It was clean and the kitchen was ready to go with thoughtful basics such as tea, fresh milk (hurray!) and oil. Towels and linen were good quality. There was plenty of storage space. Also there was shower product supplied in the bathroom. This all makes a big difference when travelling for work and I really appreciated it. The bed was very comfortable for a solo adult and I slept very well. I would need a larger bed if I were travelling as part of a couple. There was lots of natural daylight and I found it easy to work and sleep here - the two things I had hoped for. Check in was friendly and informative.

Exceptional 10.0
I travelled alone for my first trip to Edinburgh. This apartment is situated perfectly. The only slight inconvenience is picking up the key at a different location. No problem really but the check in is as advertised - but lots of things to look at while waiting and luggage storage iis available: just sometimes a person is tired from travel- The aoartment is beautuful - new and updated, huge -. More like self catering / no room service but fully outfitted.I could not figure out the washing machine too well but that could be me! Walk everywhere on the golden mike as apartment is 1/2 way down between castle and palace. Walk through the path way right at the Grocery store.- Stainbury. Take a warm sweater and coat- remember - cold Scottish wind even in June.
