Stayed three nights. no meals but facilities available to prepare. Fell it is bit expensive and definitely not a budget accommodation. Close to city centre, quite place and my self and wife definitely enjoyed the stay in the hotel. Bed was in the deck and i FEEL THE SPACE IN THE BED AREA IS NOT ADEQUATE .

The split-level studio apartments are luxurious and well-appointed. You might reconsider your plans and not go out too much if you stay in one of these! Our apartment had a great kitchen with all equipment and things like plates, pans, cutlery, milk, crockery etc provided; excellent shower room with the most powerful shower we've ever encountered. You will certainly feel... More

These apartments are within the Uni halls off residence. We where met by a very friendly guy on reception and check in was quick. Apartment was lovely and big and clean was over 2 levels and had a mini kitchen and office area. Would use these again if staying in Edinburgh. There is a freephone in reception for taxis but...

We wanted somewhere near the Uni of Edinburgh's student accommodation, the Fleming House. We couldn't have selected a more excellent choice as the buildings are in the same compound! Our 'home' for 9 nights was a studio unit on the 3rd floor - it was clean with a well-equipped kitchenette. In fact everything about the unit was simply perfect -... More

The rooms are small, but very functional. Located in a block of student accommodation, but quiet and clean. Good location for sightseeing and a short walk from the train station. Close to supermarkets. I would recommend for a short city break.

Stayed at the Richmond apartments during the Edinburgh Festivals and the apartments make a good base in Edinburgh. It is a five to ten minutes stroll to the Royal Mile and an easy walk to other areas of the city including Arthur’s Seat. The apartments are clean and comfortable and the superior studio had cooking equipment and a fridge. The... More

Stayed here over the weekend with my partner for the fringe festival. We found the apartment to be okay however on arriving soon realised it was part of student accommodation which was not mentioned anywhere at time of booking and would have made us reconsider. It was also expensive for what it was as on arrival at our studio we... More

The photos are very very misleading. Paid a lot of money for this for a two night stay in June and was not told it was part of a student accommodation which wouldn't usually bother me as I am a student myself but I wouldn't have payed for it had it been known to me. It's a small cramped apartment.... More

I was there with my girlfriend for 6 days. Didn't know what to expect till I arrived there. The receptionist was very kind. The apartment was nice and confortable close to the restaurants, grocery store and tourist atractions.

The Apartments are beautifully laid out and very well equipped for a short break with two lively boys as they were not confined to a small space and we all had a little privacy. Our apartment was in a mezzanine style which the boys loved and had lots of fun being in for out two night stay. The beds are... More

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.
