Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a Hen Party....access to the apartments took awhile but once we got keys all 13 of us were delighted with the 3 apartments booked. Lovely, bright and clean. The beds were very comfortable with good quality pillows and duvets. Towels and toiletries were provided too, and the kitchen was very well equipped.... More

I stayed here for a 2 night city break. There were just two of us so we had a double bedroom and bathroom each! The apartment was extremely spacious with a well equipped kitchen and a nice living room to relax in at the end of a long day. I think these apartments are a brilliant alternative to a hotel...

First of all it is incredibly hard to get 5 stars from me, they very nearly managed it! Bad points - it was tricky to find the keysafe with the apartment keys - I did manage it after about half an hour and with help from maps on my phone. It was also tricky finding the actual apartment and where... More

The apartments are a 10 minute walk into the city but worth the walk as they come with free parking. We were there for Hogmanay with a 15 year old so our choice of accommodation was limited but I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious and have everything you need :-) would recommend

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
