Our apartment was in the centre of the city in the middle of a street called the Royal Mile - which actually seems to be several streets that make up the stretch between Holyrood Palace and Park and Edinburgh Castle. We could easily walk to pretty much everything we wanted to see within about 10 minutes or less. The apartment had some great views down onto the Royal Mile and across the Edinburgh skyline too.
We really liked the decor of the property and the spaces. It has a Scandinavian feel with clean lines and pale blues and greens, but nice Scottish twists like tweed cushions. The bedrooms were bright and the beds were comfortable with good bedding. The kitchen had really good equipment which was a pleasant surprise. It also was also larger than kitchens in many city apartments we have stayed in - although the dining table was not huge. The bathrooms were nicely done too and we appreciated having two bathrooms when there were six of us staying. There was a good television in the sitting room as well.
The only negative worth mentioning is that the apartment is located in a historic building and there is a traditional stairway which might not be good for travellers with mobility problems or with very heavy luggage as there is not an elevator. We didn't mind as it was only two flights of stairs and the comfort and convenience of the apartment made it completely worthwhile. We were lucky as the property had been recently renovated when we visited and everything was very new but it was really well thought out and we would definitely return.
