Just got back from a hen weekend in these fab apartments. We stayed in the 5 and 4 bedroom basement apartments. They were perfect - clean, great quality, nicely decorated and plenty of room for 17 of us. Living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms all spot on - great value for money and great location - would recommend them to anyone.

Thanks for this great review.

We have tried to keep many of the nice features but make the property welcoming for groups as well as families and individuals.

I hope we will see you again in Edinburgh.

Thanks again

Dave

These apartments are within a beautiful Georgian building with many of the original features retained. No expense has been spared in the modernisation or design. We stayed in the 3 bed apartment but this could have easily slept ten people comfortably. From the cleanliness to the quality kitchen/bathrooms we literally could not find a fault.
These apartments are also conveniently located for the city centre- just 5 mins walk and handy for Waverley station. We wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

We stayed in the 3&4 bed apartment for 2 nights and had a fab time apartments are very modern clean well equipped and certainly have the wow factor we were all delighted!we even had an outdoor decked area.
Our only problem was the noise!!
.... Please be aware due to the apartments being on a busy road some of the bedrooms at the front of the property are on street level and are subject to noise from passers by late at night coming home from the local bars
Unfortunately keeping us awake... Shame the windows aren't more soundproofed a big over sight
I would certainly recommend ear plugs
This however was the only negative
Part of our stay
I would recommend this place but don't forget your ear plugs or sleep in the back of the apartments it was quiet there

Many thanks for the positive response - we really value these.

The main road has taken on a lot more traffic since the tram work restarted in central Edinburgh - a lot more buses and general traffic pass this location for a short period at the moment.

We have addressed the problem on some of the floors and I think we have a solution for downstairs which we will put in asap.

Its a historic grade A building so we have restrictions but we will try and curb this short term noise.

Thanks again for the response and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay.

My family and I (8 in total) stayed at this apartment for 3 nights last week while traveling through Scotland. Prior to arriving at the apartment, we were a bit nervous since there weren't many pictures available online of the place. In addition, we entered into the reservation under the impression that there was only two "bath rooms", and one "toilet room" (we thought that we would be sharing a toilet among the 8 of us). Something was apparently lost in the terminology (we are American, and everything having a sink + toilet + shower/bathtub is a "bathroom" to us). When we arrived, we found that the apartment had 3 FULL bathrooms (1 having a bathtub, and 2 having a stand-up shower).

In addition to the ample bathroom facilities, there is a lovely patio off the lower level, a living room with a large screen TV, a fully equipped kitchen with a table to seat 8 people (including a wall-mounted TV), 4 bedrooms upstairs, and 1 bedroom downstairs. The furnishings are modern, well-cared-for, and comfortable.

With the convenience of the Tessco Express market 1 block away (down York Place), we were able to cook meals at the apartment, which was a very nice change from our previous 4 days of travel in which we had to eat out for every meal. We found everything we needed in the kitchen to cook these meals, and also took advantage of the washing machine located in the kitchen. Since there is no clothes dryer, I suggest bringing a portable clothesline and clothespins as we did. It was very convenient.

I would suggest that the apartment managers add an LCD TV to each of the bedrooms (there is only 1 TV in the "master" bedroom). Also, we were given no instructions regarding where to take the trash (rubbish) out, and we found no bins outside to dispose of the full trash bags. This may be worthwhile to discuss with people as they check in.

We will definitely be staying at 20 York Place again on our next trip through Scotland--it was the perfect solution to keep our large group together, and it was very comfortable.
