Great location old town
This could be a lovely place I love the old Town and old buildings this is why I booked this one in particular. I had a few issues with this place 1 being the windows if you like to go to bed and sleep then until this problem is sorted this is not the place! We were awake till 5am with the outside noise coming through the the windows you literally felt as though you were outdoors it was that bad ! Another issue was after I booked this studio I had a email from the place saying there would be a £200 deposit needed on check in- this amount was not stated on the booking form as I would not have booked up here, anyway on arrival the man never asked for this money which we were glad about, they also state there is a daily reception 2-4 which there is not , we actually had a message to meet a person at a pizza shop round the back to receive the key to our studio we did this basically in the street which I found odd, in general this place was ok it was clean and the ladies that look after this place were very friendly and helpful, I would return if these minor issues were looked into as it is in a great place and location.

Fair 4.0
This place has four floors with two units per floor. One of these is occupied by the manager...I'm not sure how many - if any at all - are occupied by long-term tenants. My unit was on the top floor, which is 73 steps up. And no lift! So be prepared to carry your luggage up a long, winding staircase with some uneven steps. Despite it being on the top floor, the unit was extremely noisy, almost if it was designed to get all the noise from the busy streets and the bar below. The bedroom had two very small beds. The previously mentioned sticky surfaces are likely due to the cleanser they use (floors were not sticky, just counter tops). There is NO signage that identifies this is the Niddry Apartments. The main door looks like it belongs to the ground-level bar and is simply designated with the numeral '5'. Check-in time is limited to two hours. I didn't use the kitchen so can't comment on this. The big feature of this property is that it is right in the middle of Edinburgh's very active nightlife. It is best suited to those who want this location, need a kitchen and can live with the noise, small beds, staircase, and narrow check-in time frame. Otherwise, I strongly suggest a hotel. My stay was in mid-September, so I can't remark on the adequacy of the heating system.

Noisiest place ever!
The location was great. The apartment pretty comfortable and clean. There was no staff and no one to contact if there was a problem. There were no towels in the kitchen so doing dishes was impossible. There were not enough bath towels as well. The apartment is over two pubs that were open until 3 am. It was so noisy that we had to wear ear plugs and then couldn't drown out the noise. The morning we left there were cigarettes butts, bath tissue with feces in it, food, and garbage all over the doorway and sidewalk. It was disgusting. There is no elevator and short winding steps. The stairway was filthy and the people that run the pub smoked in the stairway so it stunk all the time. I would definitaly never stay there again!

Poor 2.0
the location is good but there were several problems. First of all, there was no lift to go to the room and the steps were very narrow. The second, the shower was very weak and it was hard to control the best warm temperature. the third problem was the window glasses were not double, so the rooms were so cold. In addition, there were not enough heaters to keep warm this room. when I was using the heaters, they stopped suddenly. Finally, it was very noisy outside because there was a pub in the downstair.

The location was great for exploring the royal mile and the apartment had some really nice features but the floors were sticky, there was used soap and empty shampoo containers in the shower, no new soap, counters were dirty and dirt build up in the corners of the rooms. Also the noise was unreal from pub partiers until 4am outside. Couldn’t sleep even with earplugs. This wasn’t a great choice for a family with kids.
