I cannot really say it is bad really, because it is kind of functional, the location is good and it is clean too, but: 1- it is very very very small and the distribution of the apartment we got is not like the one on the pics, so don't expect finding a place where you could comfortably stay a night...

I stayed here with three friends. The apartment was lovely, well worth the money. Nice and clean and well equipped. My only gripe is the sofa bed. These desperately need replacing. I did mention this on leaving and the receptionist informed me they were hoping to replace them all from May. They really do need to do this, as apart... More

We booked this hotel without doing any research, and as the trip came closer i did a bit of research and read a few quite bad reviews which put some doubts in my mind about our choice. Thankfully these doubts were unfounded. We got checked in very quickly and went to have a look at our apartment. My only complaint... More

We stayed for two nights in Feb 2015. It was a nightmare to find parking near by and we had to carry our bags over a mile in the end. The apartment was small and the living room area was very small didn't have a sofa in so we didn't use the apartment as we had originally planned. There was... More

The hotel/apartments are in a great location. Very close to The Royal Mile, Castle etc and opposite Arthur's Seat. The room is very modern and well equipped but they are quite small and the pictures do make it look like they are bigger. Due to the fact that the rooms are compact, it makes noise an issue. You can hear... More

We stayed here, in a studio apartment, with our two children in the middle of December. The apartment was clean, inexpensive, nicely decorated and well equipped. It's well situated for Holyrood and the Royal Mile. On the downside the room is open plan with the main bed situated on a small balcony overlooking the double sofa bed below so every... More

We stayed here for one night because it was one of the cheapest places we found in the city centre. When we got there we found out it was student accommodation on all over floors bar he third. The room was compact but had everything we needed. The bathroom was behind the door, with a shower, toilet and sink. It... More

LOCATION - was great for being a tourist in Edinburgh, as it was about a 10-25 minute walk to everything we wanted to see. CLEAN - I tend to be a stickler about cleanliness and I'm happy to report that at no time did I feel the urge to scrub, dust or vacuum a thing! Ah….very nice. :-D BATHROOM -... 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.
