Hotel in a great area near the Royal Mile. Hotel staff very efficient friendly and terrific to deal with. Hotel itself is a little tired and could do with some updating and "sprucing" up. Overall a good experience with a fair price. It did exactly what we wanted it to do.

Everything was perfect from the location to the staff (concierge, Paddy, in particular) to the comfort of the room. We were on our honeymoon and were immediately greeted with champagne and chocolates. We had breakfast every morning in the brasserie, which was delicious, and the high tea was the best we've ever had. They have an outstanding gluten free menu available at every meal, and it is just as delicious as the standard menu. We loved everything about the hotel and recommend it to anyone and everyone. Doubt we'll ever stay anywhere else in Edinburgh but The Scotsman again.

I wanted central, reasonably priced, clean hotel which I got here. Good bed, good bathroom serviced daily. Tea and coffee, hairdryer, good lighting. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. My room was quiet.
If I had to be negative no fridge and sensitive fire alarm which went off when guest used a hairdryer.
Lots of corridors in all directions but good lift.
A really good experience.....would return.

I cannot express enough what a great stay this was. The hotel staff was amazing (great greeting, dinner recommendation, conversation). Stayed on a business trip, but would come back for a family holiday. The pool looked great. The location was great - lots of things to do in the area.

Very convenient location for the university. Good space, clean and polite staff. Nothing fancy but all facilities you need apart from electric sockets near a mirror. Big bug bear in hotels, obviously designed by men who don't apply make up or dry hair with a hair dryer. Loads of sockets if you want to use a lap top or charge you phone.

This is the third time we've stayed at the Holyrood Aparthotel, and it continues to be our first choice in Edinburgh. The staff are excellent, the rooms are spacious, well-appointed and clean, and the option for ordering breakfast items is very helpful. We ordered the breakfast items for 2, at 7.50 pounds sterling per person for our first morning there, and had more than enough food to last all four mornings of our stay. Wifi was free and worked very well. The location is excellent- we were able to walk everywhere.

With narrow, winding streets and alleys, this mediaeval district is a contrast to New Town. Acting as the main artery, the Royal Mile begins at Edinburgh Castle and ends at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Family’s residence. Many tourist attractions are found in Old Town including the National Galleries, Royal Museum, and St. Giles Cathedral.
