Good location and services

The location is great if you don’t want to be right in central Edinburgh There is onsite, secure parking and the bus is right nearby and gets you into the heart of town quickly; additionally, it’s just ten minutes to Princes Street and the waterfront is right there for nice walks There is a 24-hour supermarket just a five-minute walk, which is great when using the apartment’s kitchen facilities There are restaurants close if you prefer.

Negative Reviews

Less accessible after 10 pm

While the bus is close by and convenient, service slows after 10 pm If you are planning to come back in the late evening you are better to grab a taxi, the cost is reasonable.

Maintenance issues

You may run into some issues with services during your stay The lift broke down but was quickly fixed by the next day Some room fixtures are broken or small items need repair The staff is quick to fix issues that do require immediate attention In general, the property could use a bit of a refresh.

Limited Parking

Hot-El-Apartments Edinburgh Waterfront parking can be problematic The staff will do what they can but it is based on availability so if you don’ get a spot you’ll end up looking for street parking.
