Braid Apartments by Mansley, Thistle Street, Edinburgh

The popularity for serviced apartments continues to grow and the trend of this particular accommodation type shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

City centre properties perform particularly well in this area for obvious reasons and Edinburgh’s Braid Apartments are no different. Purchased by Mansley to add to their growing portfolio around the UK, Braid in Thistle Street is a true gem of a property and the second for Mansley in the capital.

Situated within 5 minutes walk of the capital’s main shopping thoroughfare of Princes Street and a short step to the thriving bars and restaurants in George Street, Braid Apartments really couldn’t be any better located.

Having already visited The Knight Residence by Mansley, several years ago, my expectations for a similar quality were not at all shattered but comfortingly met at the new 20 studio, one bedroom and two bedroom luxury apartments.

Thistle Street itself, is a mini hub of boutique shops and secluded bars; chic, convenient and it’s location in the heart of Edinburgh’s new town, perfect for a city break or a business stopover.

Business travellers and families alike are drawn by the simplicity and ease of serviced apartment accommodation, where life carries on as normal, at a pace to suit; unbound by dining times and the inconvenient restrictions of one room.

Space, light and ease make any stay with Mansley a convenient and simple choice, from check-in at the warmly welcoming, manned reception to thoughtful additions in each apartment, essential to any stay.

Surprisingly quiet, considering the location, a very peaceful night’s sleep offered the icing on the very convenient cake, where guests are absorbed into the New Town lifestyle, amidst some of the most sought-after property in town.

I was able to take advantage of Edinburgh’s bustling Christmas market without worry of parking issues, buses, trams or taxis; returning to Thistle street several times to unload bags, collect forgotten items, grab a drink, in the comfort and seclusion of the apartment, before the short stroll back again.

This really is the easy way to stay in the city; before, during and on departure; Mansley really make everything simple and stress-free, with the added bonus of luxury accommodation right in the heart of town.

I, personally look forward to further additions to their portfolio, as they are sure to provide the same exceptional levels of luxury, comfort and service.


Notes: Braid Apartments by Mansley is the second property purchased by thr group in just over three years. The Knight Residence in Edinburgh’s Old Town was acquired in March 2015 and Mansley own a further portfolio of properties around the UK.
