Read Robertson's Close Reviews
Robertson's Close was an OK living space. The rooms were nice and private and the kitchens had ample space to work. However, the toilets never flushed properly and the hot water didn't always function. The laundry machines broke quite often but they just switched to a new system that might be better. It's quite a loud place to live: if you're facing the courtyard, you can hear every conversation outside, plus some indoors as well. If you're facing the street, you have the bar noise, the street noise, etc. There were mice that infested the building and the management refused to do anything about it. Good location near Old College, Tesco, the gym, the Royal Mile, etc which is Robertson's Close's only redeeming quality.
Building has mice, management won't do much except put poison down which takes weeks to work and just leaves you with dead mice around the flat. Gate is constantly breaking leaving people locked outside the property, washers and dryers in laundry room are again constantly breaking and you have to phone the company yourself - management won't take care of it. The flats are in a good location though, very close to Tesco, the uni, and the royal mile, princes street etc. Not really worth what you pay for though overall.
