Our review

Hidden away down a cobbled alleyway off the Royal Mile in a secluded quiet courtyard, the Old Town Chambers offer fifty, 5 star serviced apartments. With easy access to Waverley station and the airport bus terminus, the Old Town is a prime location for leisure and business visitors to stay to explore the city. All the city highlights and attractions, are within walking distance.

Each of the self-catering apartments from small studios to spacious family accommodation, sleeping up to six guests, has been designed with an individual decorative style. The Townhouse is a refurbished 15th century building with its original vaulted stone ceiling, fireplace, beams and winding staircase like an ancient Scottish Castle. Alternatively stay in a truly fabulous contemporary 2 / 3 bedroom Penthouse with a terrace balcony, overlooking Princes Street.

In the signature one bedroom Flat 48 for example, the bespoke furnishings are excellent quality – a sumptuously comfortable lime green sofa in the living room, with wool throws and Scottish tweed from Harris and Bute.  Smart TV and free Wi-Fi too. The open plan layout is beautifully designed, from kitchen, with dining alcove, lounge leads into the bedroom and en-suite bathroom with its stunning bathtub with city views. 

The kitchen has every utensil for the budding MasterChef and all essentials from washing machine to microwave, for your home from home holiday – even a Nespresso coffee machine.

You’ll settle in easily amidst the gorgeous design and décor, comfort and facilities. It was bliss relaxing with a drink in the lounge, with a bird’s eye view looking down at the baronial architecture of Cockburn Street with its turrets and towers.

Enjoy the freedom to eat in house or dine around with a diverse range of pubs, bars, bistros and restaurants nearby. Zizzi, an Italian Restaurant is part of the Old Town Chambers building so just a few short steps from the front door, with outdoor courtyard seating too. Friendly service, fabulous pizzas, fair prices.

The architectural vision and creative concept of the Old Town Chambers is truly extraordinary. It’s a cliché but they have the Wow Factor –indeed, a triple Wow for perfect location, superlative design and personal service.

These apartments offer a quintessential, authentic experience of staying within the World Heritage Site of the Old Town combined with the luxurious comforts of a 21st century lifestyle. A truly unique place to stay.
