A Great Place to Stay in Edinburgh

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 29, 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff was excellent. They stocked the kitchen with enough breakfast and snack items to tide us over until we could shop on our own. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the view from either side of the condo was pleasant, and we were close to Princes Street. Transportation was easy to find and the staff provided information on how to get around the city, where to find restaurants, and other advice we needed as tourists. Coffee and a pastry were available in the lobby in the morning and wine in the afternoon. Everyone was friendly and courteous--staff and other guests. We took advantage of having access to the private Queen Street garden. It was a peaceful, pleasant place to take a short walk. And, the Scottish Portrait Gallery was across with street. When we were there it had a fantastic café that opened for breakfast and lunch. It was packed with regular customers so get there when it opens! (Online information states that the gallery is closed and will reopen in 2011.) If we go back to Edinburgh we will stay at the Royal Garden Apartments again.

Unique Quality: The most outstanding feature was the friendly staff and the kitchen essentials such as fruit, milk, coffee, and shortbread!

Directions: Across from the Scottish Portrait Gallery.
