Fantastic central location. The appartment was a good size, clean and well finished. In addition Jon provided plenty of advice helping us find parking, places to eat and most importantly drink. A+++

"Excellent apartment at the superb location."

06 May 2011
Despite being located on Royal Mile it is pretty quiet. Good apartment with plenty of space, good beds and well equipped kitchen. The owner is very good let us to use the apartment as soon as it was cleaned, before 3pm.

"Good Value"

Stayed with Inneritylets last week on business. nice place - much better than the usual boring hotel room that I usually use for business trips! I will be back.

"Great Location"

06 June 2011
This apartment is great for location, everything is at most 15 walk away. Jon was very helpful and I definitely would stay here again as it is worked out cost effective staying as a family of 5 adults.

"Great apartments"

23 June 2011
Fantastic weekend in Edinbrugh! We will be returning.

"Great location with a great price!"

11 July 2011
We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June. The accomodations were superbly clean with ample sleeping and living space. The cobblestone street of the Royal Mile is literally on its doorstep! Checking in was so simple with Jon meeting us and giving a brief review of the wonderful city of Edinburgh and what it had to offer. We'd definately stay here again.

"Great Location"

18 July 2011
A group of six of us stayed at the John Knox apartment in July 2011. We requested an earlier check in time which was granted thanks to Jon. On arrival Jon was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, short walk from Waverley train station and Princes Street. There was ample space in the apartment which was well equipped and clean. Although the location was great, there was some noise at night from the traffic outside. Would definitely recommend and would go back!

"Right in the action!"

20 September 2011
A group of friends stayed here for a couple of nights during the festival. We've rented many apartments over the years and have never had one so close to all of the action at the festival. This meant that we could return to eat/rest throughout our busy schedule. In addition, the owner was very helpful in allowing us to leave our bags at the apartment early, this made the start to our time very easy. The flat was clean and spacious. On the down side, the front bedroom was pretty noisy all through the night and the sofa bed matress wasn't comfy. The kitchen could've done with some cooking utensils. That said, we would definately use this flat again. Helful, freindly service in a great location. :)

Great apartment in a very convenient location. Very pleased.

"A brilliant location for exploring the city"

05 January 2012
The owner of the accommodation was very friendly and helpful, staying in contact with us leading up to our trip and during our journey to ensure that he would be there on our arrival to allow us access to the apartment. The location was great for us, with the castle and Princes Street only a short walk away. It did get a bit noisy at nights, mainly the noise of traffic on the Royal Mile, and was especially noticeable for those sleeping in the front rooms, but we just put the lighter sleepers in the back room and everyone slept well. We had travelled by car, which we parked on the long-stay car park at Waverley Station, but I think next time we might travel by train as we didn't need the car at all once we were there. We had planned to drive to the zoo on our second day, but decided instead to go by bus as we had realised that that would be an easier option. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to either this property or one of the others owned by InnerCityLets.

"What a brilliant stay..!!"

07 January 2012
I have to admit, it doesnt get much better than this. Perfect location, lovely landlord, real easy going. They made our stay so pleasant. Everything was so easy! They made it so personal, we even got a tour of the city!!

"It's lovely, spacious, modern"

03 February 2012
The John Knox apartment is so well located that you needn't hire a car or even take a taxi. If you go out of the back entrance of Waverley Train Station, it's about a 7 minute scenic walk. The location on the Royal Mile affords you access to the best restaurants and pubs and the owner is knowledgeable about both. The flat is true to its Internet presence, which isn't always the case. It's lovely, spacious, modern, clean, and tidy. Each room is comfortably furnished, including a lounge with two sittees and a great view of the city. The kitchen is large, bright and well-equipped and we especially appreciated the well-kept and warm bathroom. Whether your traveling in season or at other times of the year, this flat is a perfect home away from home!

"Gran recepcion"

07 August 2012
Comodos y supercentrico apartamento, nos alojamos 2 familias durante nuestra visita a edinburgo y no tuvimos que utilizar ningun transporte. Grande la recepcion, llamandonos y facilitando la localizacion ya que llegamos pasadas las 11:00pm

"Just what we wanted!"

17 October 2012
The flat was very clean and spacious, with all the ammenities we needed. We were very comfortable there. There was some night-time noise from the street that came through to the front bedroom which was hard to block out, but otherwise we can't complain because the location was absolutely perfect! We arrived and left by bus and it was very convienient. The owner was quite accommodating about arranging a time to check in (even with a last-minute change due to travel delays). I would stay there again, and would certainly recommend it!

"Perfect for us"

30 November 2012
Great apartment in the city! Just as described... everything is on your doorstep. Good weekend.

"Amazing value!"

02 April 2013
What a great place to stay! we booked John Knox and Cranston street (really close to each other) for a stag do in March 2013. John was fantastic made the whole process really straight forward and I am still taken back on how cheap this worked out for us. Have already promised a trip to Edinburgh after the stag and I will definitely use these apartments again!!!
Adam Smith

"Highly recommended"

02 April 2013
We had a great stay. Jon looked after us from the very start when booking up to giving us directions from the station and meeting us at the door! Great value and brilliant location. Highly recommended. It was nice to get such a personal service.

No complaints whatsoever. Jon was brilliant, all six of us enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again.

"Fantastic Location"

12 December 2013
The apartment was in the perfect location, close to everything and close to plenty of lovely bars and restaurants. Jon was very helpful and friendly and gave us plenty of good advice on places to visit. The apartment was warm and clean and we had plenty of room with the added bonus of wifi. we had a great time and would definitely return.

"Lovely Edinburgh!!!"

31 December 2013
We have just stayed over at the end of November and it is really a good location if you want to be in the old side of Edinburgh. Walking down to Palace or the Castle is simply a stone throw away. It might be a little noise when the street cleaning vehicles arrive, other than that, everything is good. We have a convenient store below and the man must be the most friendly and wonderful uncle around. Pubs and eateries are also located at all over the area. The apartment has actually 2 rooms plus 2 queen size sofa beds in the living. Hence, really a good deal if you have 8 persons (not sure if additional person needs extra cost though). Ya, also the day tours shops are located along the street, downstairs and along the street. So brilliant.

"clean & lovely"

05 May 2016
We took 2 apartments on the Royal Mile as there were 14 of us staying for the May bank holiday weekend. Apartments were near each other. So we were able to keep the group together. Both apartments were clean & lovely and matched the pictures on the website. We couldn't have gotten a better location to stay, we were very close to pub/ clubs. Walking distance to Princes Street and Queens street. Everyone in the group were delighted with the accommodation and would highly recommend any family/group to stay there. Jon was very helpful and informed us of nearby pubs, clubs and local attractions.
