    Old Town Chambers, a collection of five star serviced apartments that forms part of a £46m redevelopment of three medieval closes off Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, has been accredited with the Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP) Quality Assessment Marque. The 50 apartments, including a 15th century townhouse and penthouse, blend state-of the-art facilities with centuries old architectural features, such as solid stone walls, original fireplaces and painted wall panels and beams, contrasting against double smoked French oak wooden flooring and Italian tiling, alongside the latest home entertainment system and a 24 hour concierge service.

    Emerging from the 15th century Advocate’s, Roxburgh’s and Warriston’s Closes, the apartments capitalise on the historical character of the site as well as some of the most captivating views across the city’s Princes Street Gardens, to give tourist and business visitors a unique city centre experience.

    Julie Grieve, CEO of Lateral City, operator of the Old Town Chambers, said:
    “We are delighted to have been accredited by The Association of Serviced Apartment Providers. It is an important step in our growth that our standards are measured and we are delighted to have achieved the ASAP marque.

    “Serviced apartments are growing in popularity as tourists and business visitors seek out a more independent stay. Our offering at Old Town Chambers is, above all, about style and amazing spaces – from 15th century vaulted rooms to suites with stunning views across Princes Street.”

    ASAP Quality Assessment ensures members of the ASAP who have been accredited are compliant with core legal, health & safety practices and provides the industry with a means of measuring and comparing the quality of Serviced Apartments. Every member of the ASAP displaying the marque will have participated in the Quality Assessment Program and have successfully achieve accreditation.
    James Foice, Managing Director of the ASAP commented:

    “I’d like to congratulate Old Town Chambers for successfully achieving their ASAP quality accreditation.

    “Their high quality product and the very high customer service standards achieved are a wonderful example of excellence in our sector.

    “We’re delighted that our scheme is now beginning to gain recognition from the corporate travel sector and are now able to announce that we will be rolling it out internationally early next month.”
