We stayed for a week at the Parkside Apartment, not far from Arthurs Seat which sleeps 6 over 2 floors. From the outside it looks pretty grim and to be fair is better when you get inside. Outside there is a lovely garden but very little, if any, street parking which doesn't cost a fortune. The house could be lovely,... More

We ended up here when our original apartment had an plumbing issue and were booked here by them. I think we got a good deal as this apartment would sleep 6 comfortably so we had a room each! Great apartment. No issues except the corkscrew was broken (LOL) Comfortable. Located about £10 cab fare from city centre. Nice neighbours who... More

Auld Reekie has all the basics you need in a low budget kind of way. Everything is clearly pretty cheap but it's warm, there's hot water and you get a towel each. It's adequately clean but I would say it's been a while since it was deep cleaned or had any money spent on it. 64 steps up to the... More

Stayed for the weekend with friends and overall the apartment was clean, in a great spot and just what we needed with 6 of us. Well kept and spacious. The tiny gripe for us was just the little touches like no tea or coffee or salt and pepper. In the grand scheme of it they are not important but litle... More

After a five day walking tour staying at B&Bs, it was great to be able to prepare our own meals and wash our clothes. While there was a washing machine, no washing powder or sachets was provided, which did mean the purchase of a box at the supermarket to do just one load of washing - rather wasteful. However the...

This is a very pleasant apartment near the centre of Edinburgh, within easy walking distance of many of the city's attractions. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay: it's quiet, well-maintained, spacious and everything was in good working order. Free WiFi was a bonus for the very reasonable price. I would note that there are... More
