My wife and I stayed for two nights in a studio flat on South St. Andrews street. The flat was very clean and well appointed. The kitchen area contained everything you would require to cook your own meals. We did not do so as we were only there two nights. The flat is well located in Edinburgh, close to Waverley... More

Excellent, was a great apartment,location and key pad entry worked really well. The only complaint we had was the bed was terrible.

A wonderfully appointed city apartment within the hustle and bustle of the city. A great bolt-hole for exploring, handy for shops and great local restaurants. Recommend the Oyster Bar round the corner - fab lobster!

This Desitny apartment, just off St Andrews Square is ideally placed for exploring central Edinburgh. One fact not mentioned in the publicity however is that the flat is above a 24 hour MacDonalds restaurant and a KFC open until 3am. The noise from loud and mostly very drunk people continues through the night and the windows of the apartment are... More
