Rodney Street Apartments by Destination Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2013

4 stayed in this apartment the day before a wedding. The apartment was spacious enough for everyone to get ready in the morning. Free parking is provided for 1 car per apartment but because we were only there for one night, they were able to supply us with two permits, which was extremely helpful.
It is in a relatively quiet area so we were all able to have a good sleep.
The kitchen is well equipped.

After reading comments about how dingy the building looked from outside, I was expecting something looking run down. However, the building looked fine and well maintained. We met Gary at the office across the street from the apartment. Gary is a very pleasant gentleman and he took care to explain not only the apartment but also the neighborhood. The beds in the 2 bedroom apartment were laid out the way we wanted. The shower had a bonus, a gadget that created water pressure and instant hot water. The kitchen was fully equipped with stove, microwave, fridge and washer. Everything worked fine. Wifi performed well. Plates and utensils were supplied.

Close by to the apartment is a Tesco supermarket and lots of restaurants in walking distance. A Hertz car rental office is close by, just 10 minutes walk on Picardy Place. Parking is available in plenty in the parking lot outside the building and the apartment comes with a parking permit for one car. The one thing I wish they supplied were the phone numbers of taxi companies in their apartment guide.

All in all we had a very pleasant stay here and recommend Rodney Street Apartments without reservation. We'll definitely stay here again if we come back to Edinburgh.

We stayed for 3 days at the Rodney Place - 6 people total. The flat is in a good and safe location, 15 min walk from the city centre. Plenty of shops and places to eat nearby. They had towels for everyone, cutlery, tea, coffee... The couple who had the sofa bed in the living room said it needed a clean but otherwise the flat was clean. Always has hot water. We really enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: There's no lift

good location (walking distance to city center), nice flat (quite), very professional support (very friendly also). the only room that might be improved is kitchen... (but we didn't use it). We were at third floor (and no elevator) but it was good.

Spacious apartment, spotlessly clean, really well equipped and at a good price.
.
Close to Tescos, interesting restaurants and small independent shops. 10 - 15 min walk to Waverley Station, uphill, but the return trip is quicker!

We'd love to stay again.

Our family (6 people) and our sons' two best friends stayed in Edinburgh for two nights. We booked two apartments, and it worked out really well. When we were about an hour away from the apartments, we called and were met when we arrived. As others have mentioned, the building is a little tired, but both apartments were clean and spacious. The apartment management contacted us ahead of time to ask how we wanted the bedrooms configured, which was nice. The apartments consist of two bedrooms (each with either two single beds or a two singles pushed together to make a double bed), a full bath, a full kitchen (with a clothes washer), and a living room. There is a Tesco right across the street, which is great when travelling with a family. We stocked up on drinks, snacks, and breakfast food, which saved some money because we didn't have to eat every meal out. There are some nice restaurants and pubs close to the apartments. The castle and the Royal Mile are within walking distance (about 20 minutes). If you have a car, you can park it in the apartment parking lot, and then just walk or take public transportation everywhere. Overall, it was a perfect place for us to stay with our family/friends.
