Prime Location - Amazing View - Spacious

I stayed here in March for 3 nights, Wednesday - Friday night. Location is prime, walking distance from all the main attractions. Easy entry with code pad. The apartments is located on main street in New Town where there are several shops. There is a McDonald's right next door of apartment entrance so unfortunately the noise of people, police and drunks is very loud all day. Wednesday and Thursday the loud crowd slowed down around 11pm but Friday night people where screaming and sirens until 4am. Apartment has amazing view of castle and church, directly through both large windows. Hot water, hair dyer, safe box, heater, washer and dryer and all essentials you will need. Apartment is spacious for 2 people, nicely decorated. Cleanliness wasnt too great, I found random hairs throughout bed under sheets and pillows, also on the couch. Overall my stay here was very comfortable and the view and location is prime!

Beautiful little apartment right on Princes Street, perfect for relaxing "at home" while still enjoying views of the castle and city, which was great for a cold and rainy stay. Compact but well-designed, practical and comfortable. The only negative point was a bit of noise during the night at the weekend, which I guess comes with the location!
