    Worst experience

    We arrived at the apartment and as per the instructions got the keys from the safe. When we entered the room it had not been cleaned from the previous guest. We contacted Phil and he said that there was nothing that he could do at this place as the maid hadn't been able to come through to clean. He did relocate us to a new accommodation not far from the place we were meant to stay. It was much appreciated however we had to make do. The place we were relocated to was very small, had no kitchen facilities and did not include breakfast. Yes we lost out and felt cheated out of especially precious time. The bathroom was filthy, the bed was not made. No fresh towels and linen and dirt in the room. The pictures reflect what we arrived to. I was promised a refund but this hasn't happened.

      Enjoyed our visti

      We had a good time staying at My Edinburgh Life. Most of my questions were answered on the webpage, but I had to search a bit to find them out. One item was luggage storage (not large, and it looks like some guests use it to store extra items that they do not have room for. In addition, there is no refrigerators in the room in building 13, so just be aware. Make sure that you take a look at what is offered, and ask questions before you book. The property is in the Haymarket area, about 1 mile walk from the Royal Mile. What I liked about it, was that I could enjoy the Royal Mile area during the day, and at night get to a quieter section where I could enjoy a nice dinner or a wee dram at one of the local pubs. What I was a little disappointed about was that there was no interaction with the staff when I got ther, just by email, but they are responsive. The reason for this is that they like to let people enjoy their stay. While they did have some information on Edinburgh, it would be nice to possibly have the following information in each guest room - shopping (to get forgotten items), restaurants, pubs.
