My husband and I stayed here for our 3 night stay in Edinburgh. We took a taxi from Waverly train station as we had luggage, but it only cost us 4.60 GBP. You can walk to the apartments within 10 minutes however. The gentleman on reception was lovely and showed us where everything was on the map, the studio room...

I stayed 2 nights and I feelt that I got good value for my money. The rooms were ok, no super rooms but what to expect for the price. The location was great and it had nice stores close and short distance to center. Nice people working in thd reception.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The reason why I chose to stay here was because of its close distance to the Royal College of Edinburgh (3 minutes of leisure walk). Within walking distance from the town centre, but if you're dragging heavy luggage, might be wise if you take the bus instead. From the bus stop you would need...

I loved staying here. The location is fabulous (a few easily-walkable blocks from the Royal Mile, bus station, train stations; but on a quiet side street, so not at all congested or noisy), price is very reasonable for the location, staff is friendly and helpful, and the layout made it feel more like an apartment than a hotel. I don't...

We arrived here early on a Sunday morning after a trans-Atlantic flight. When we checked in, we were told that a room wouldn't be ready until 3pm (6 hours later), but he took our email and promised he would let us know if a room was ready earlier. We went around the corner to Kilimanjaro Coffee and had a nice...

I have traveled to this place for leasure. First of all: the pictures of the studio flat I had booked through the web were not matching the actual place we were assigned; the flat was even nicer! It is part of the university lot where apparently a wing of the building is available for private rent. So in the beginning...

Stayed one night here for the Edinburgh Rock n Roll Half Marathon. It was in a ideal location for this as was within a short walk of the Start/Finish line and was also handy for the city centre. There is also a small Tesco store, just around the corner. The apartments are part of a student accommodation block, but do...

We stayed here for 2 nights in a one-bedroom apartment. Two of us had the double bed and two of us slept on the sofa bed. If a group of us stayed here again I would go for the two-bedroom apartment because the sofa bed is really uncomfortable (but the double bed is really comfortable). The rest of the apartment...

Came to Edinburgh for a hen night, staying for 1 night. Stayed in one of the studios which had a two level layout. Bathroom then kitchen/dining area on the ground floor and then bedroom upstairs. It was on the small side, especially the stairs but for a 1 night stay, not a problem. Was very impressed with the cleanliness of...

We were staying here for 3 days. We were suprised the quality of this apartment. They were big, clean and modern. Kitchen was good. Our apartment was kind of like in a three layers.

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
