“Really great weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

We booked through laterooms and got an absolute bargain. Everything in the apartment was great. Lots of little pubs, bars and cafe's about. A few convenience stores too. A nice walk through the meadows into the centre of Edinburgh.

Our only small difficulty was trying to find where on the street the apartment was when we arrived in the car and parking. The street outside has a bus lane where you can't park in the morning or afternoon. We eventually found the car park that is recommended but it was after opening hours and felt a little dodgy leaving the car there but it all worked out fine.

Highly recommend The Southern for drinks, dinner and breakfast!

Thank you to all the Destination Edinburgh Team for making our Rugby Weekend such a success. 7 of us stayed at one of the basement Appartments on Friday & Saturday Night whilst up for the Scotland v England game. The accommodation was clean and tidy with one room being ensuite and others sharing a bathroom/shower and toilet. The kitchenette/living room was well stocked with tea & coffee and kitchen utensils/mugs/plates. There was also access to a nice patio area at the rear of the appartment.
The location was ideal with only a 10 minute taxi ride into the City Centre or to Murrayfield Stadium. It is also right next door to the 'Revere' Pub which is well worth a visit.
Would definately stop here again.

We stayed in this apartment: 3 adults and a toddler, in July 2013

We absolutely loved it. The apartment we stayed was in the top floor, the living room was huge and there were two bathrooms too.

Very clean. All necessary stuff in the kitchen.

It is reasonably central, depending on where you want to get to. Goof Bus services are at door step, to get to almost all places.

No parking and The stairs can be a bit steep to climb, while carrying suitcases/pram. But, all positive otherwise

Prices can vary a lot depending on the season. So, value for money depends on how much you pay.

Room Tip: Would recommend the top floor apartment; Less noise from the road and it was very spacious

This flat was in a good location for us. It was very clean and has comfortable beds. The bedrooms are at the rear so away from street noise. The kitchen and living room are open plan and spacious. Adequate pans etc for cooking. Lots of places to get food or eat out nearby. It suited our requirements very well.

Great place to come back and relax after a busy day sightseeing. Nice to have all the facilities to cook and separate bedrooms, perfect for what we wanted. I would defiantly stay here again with out a doubt

I was in Edinburgh on a conference and since I was travelling with my baby boy, decided on a flat instead of hotel room. The conference venue was just around the corner. The fltas are really roomy. Don't be affraid on having to cram yourself in a match box!. If I ever need to go again to Edinburgh I will not doubt in taking again one of their flats.
