Property Information:

The Royal Mile Apartment is a truly unique place to stay - our bright young team will welcome you to our beautiful Victorian Town Apartment bursting with character and charm. We have created a fusion of contemporary living space with good old fashioned Scottish Family hospitality. Our guests often say it's more like a Family home than a Hostel, with a laid back attitude and cosy friendly atmosphere. The Royal Mile Apartment is the place to chill out and make new friends. We are only 15 minutes' walk to Edinburgh Castle, 3 minutes walk to Holyrood Palace, 3 minutes walk to Scottish Parliament. And Arthurs Seat, the extinct volcano is right on our doorstep with the largest green belt area, Holyrood Park, Holyrood Abbey & The Queen's Gallery.

Reception is open from 7am to 10pm and check in time is from 3pm to 10pm. If you arrive in the city before 3pm, please feel free to drop off your luggage and we will give you a map and introduction to Edinburgh, then come back after 3pm to check in.

We aim to provide a good night's sleep for our guests so that everyone feels refreshed the next day to explore the city or to continue with their onward journey. Therefore there is strictly no check in after 10pm. If you plan to arrive after 10pm, then please do not book with us. This rule can be extended to 11pm in case of delays in transportation. After 11pm there will be no entry until the following day.

The Royal Mile Apartment is a loving, caring and sharing place to be - we donate 10% of our profit to a housing charity. So when you stay with us, you are also helping to provide homes for people in need.

We are situated in the artistic area of the city centre. Nearby are 4 cinemas, 3 theatres, a concert hall, a wide selection of restaurants, bars, coffee houses - and a co-operative super market that opens till 10pm for your essential supplies!

The communal living areas are clean and cosy providing a great space to relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. We have a spacious comfy lounge where you can relax and enjoy reading some of our books in our extensive travel library.

We have a fully equipped self catering kitchen including a dish washer...... so no need to wash up, Yey! There is also a large back garden where we host regular campfires and BBQs - so bring your guitars and best (or worst) singing voices and join us for a good old sing along around the fire; dancing is optional!

We provide all these free stuff:
Free breakfast consisting cereal, toast, jam, butter spread, chocolate spread, peanut butter, marmalade, tea and coffee.
Free tea and coffee all day.
Free Wi-Fi, free internet access on a desk top computer.
free towel hire, free linen.

We offer a bright and spacious room which is our 4-bed dorm; The 4-bed dorm has a private mezzanine with the whole area floored with super king size memory foam for a couple to share with electrical sockets, bedside table and a lamp. Below is two more double beds and one single bed so it can accommodate up to a family of 4/5.

We operate a no shoes policy in The Royal Mile Apartment to keep the house in spotless order, a shoe rack and slippers are provided at the entrance making it feel like a real home from home.

There is a no smoking policy throughout the Housel with smoking area in the back garden.

There is no curfew. However, we are not a party house, therefore the lounge and kitchen are unavailable at midnight and we request that guests be very quiet when returning after midnight, this is to ensure other guests who are sleeping are not disturbed.

    Jon's little flat is perfect if you are wanting a quieter alternative to a normal hostel; it's clean, homely (we especially enjoyed the fine art and selection of tea towels) and ideally located. More importantly, Jon (the host) totally made our trip to Edinburgh. We had a very comical evening in which Jon let us dress up in all sorts of Scottish attire and told us the equally hilarious stories that went with each outfit. Thankyou so much for your hospitality Jon, we had an absolute ball! :)
