                A gem of a find”

                Price, location, facilities

                Stumbled upon Merchiston while looking for a place to stay for a few days in Edinburgh. Running on a strict budget so surprisingly Merchiston was within my budget. I suppose the big discount that went with the rental resulted in a relatively cheap price for such a place. First thing that strikes you that this is not a hotel. There are no reception to greet you and no dining facilities what so ever. It's basically six rooms refurbished to rent out to people needing a place to sleep and rest. Entry is by passcode, and in the interest of other guests, I will not say how you will get them or how they are used, but believe me it's very convenient. What a place and what a room. You get everything you require for a comfortable stay in Merchiston. Fully furnished kitchen with an oven, a toaster, an entire range of cutlery and crockery. A washing machine and drier. Fridge, of course. They even leave you with the required detergent and cleaning aids and liquids if you do require to use them. The room is basically one floor, but they build the bed on top of the bathroom...you have to see it yourself to believe. No tub, and the bathroom might feel a little cramped for much larger people, but its so stylish. The sofa in the living area is so soft you could sleep on it without bothering to move to the bed. But the bed, is probably the softest most comfy bed I've had in many years. I literally begged the management to let me extend my stay, but they're are booked through the week. Oh well, if I ever come back to Edinburgh, this is where I will go. It's a short walk away from the city centre, there's shops aplenty within a quick walking distance. Google map it and take a look.

                Fantastic!”

                Merchiston Residence is gorgeous and comfortable place to stay. It is in a lovely location, very quiet and there are some shops and restaurants very close by. It is about half an hour walk to the castle and twenty minutes to princes street however it's a lovely walk through the suburbs of Edinburgh. I would recommend this to anyone as it provides a great home to stay in whilst visiting such a great city.

                Amazing location, facilities and value”

                Absolutely great location very close to some lovely parts of Edinburgh, with the added bonus of a really nice Starbucks 30 secs away! Has everything you could need. Lovely decor and thought has obviously been given to your needs - extra blanket, hairdryer, ironing board etc. I didn't really expect towels, toiletries, tea/coffee etc for the price I paid, but these were supplied and were very good quality. Only negatives were 1) As it's in a period building has potential to be on the cool side, but 2 freestanding heaters supplied in addition to central heating, so not really an issue. 2) Shower caddy was at a funny angle so products kept falling out, and the shower gel bottle cracked and had to be thrown away. Having said that, I would have paid at least double for this place and been happy.

                Great stay”

                We'd stayed here before and were very impressed with our large, well-equipped apartment. Only a smaller one was available this time - very compact indeed, but all we really needed. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the location is quiet. The area itself, Bruntsfield, is a lovely part of Edinburgh and has plenty of good restaurants and cafes to choose from. Our only complaints are minor - the microwave didn't work at all (we informed the staff and it appeared they already knew it was broken), and much of the crockery was chipped. I'd still stay here again and recommend the place to others.

                Beautiful property”

                We stayed over for one night at the Merchiston Residence. There were 11 of us in total. I received clear instructions for entering the property. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised at how clean the property was. We could not fault this. Excellent facilities within each apartment. My only issue (very minor) were the beds. The double beds were on the smaller size and not very comfy and the sofa beds were extremely uncomfortable, a bit frustrating for us after we completed a 5k. We were ready for a good nights sleep. The price was ok as we were in a large group however I would find this a tad expensive if staying in a smaller group. Apartment 7 had a sewage smell in the bathroom which seemed to get worse after 4 people showered. Other than these very minor things I’d give it a 5* rating
