Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood 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.

+The apartment was well furnished, great facilities, comfy bed, clean, very quiet and in perfect location. - small rooms and the mirror was far away from the plug sockets which made doing hair difficult.

You cannot fault the location, as the accommodation is so expensive in Edinburgh, it seemed like a good choice. The room itself was fine and was clean. However, there were holes in the pillow cases and a yellow stain on one of the towels. There was also a disgusting smell

Dear waterfalls_11, Thank you for your review of our apartments. I am very disappointed to read that you experienced issues during your stay in particular in your bathroom as those are most certainly not the standard we pride ourselves on and of my expectation. Following your review we have investigated those in full and taken appropriate measures to ensure those will not happen again. I would be delighted to discuss with you in person, please contact myself direct. Best wishes, Robert Kitzinger

I'm afraid we didn't have a car with us so I wasn't paying too much attention but there was a little parking at the hotel, some street parking around the hotel and it is pretty central so I am sure there is an underground car park nearby.

"ASK for a splitlevel room!"
"We stayed in apartment 116. No noise issues but if concerned request an apartment that overlooks the back of the building."
"Rooms that aren't near the road are quieter."
"Rooms facing the inner court are more quiet but have no view."
"Ask for a sunny room."
