I really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was spacious and contained all expected amenities. It was really clean and the bed was comfortable. It was also conveniently located near The Royal Mile. Staff at reception were friendly and helpful. My only criticism is that without air con or a fully opening window the room was quite stuffy during some...

I highly recommend this as a place to stay in Edinburgh. The location is such that you can easily walk to major sights, and is a pretty easy walk from the main train station (about 15 minutes). The small but highly-functional kitchen has everything you need, and a nearby Tesco means you can really save money on eating out. We...

Our apartment in this complex was excellent. It was spotlessly clean and kitted out with everything you need. The location was brilliant - easy walking to everywhere you wanted to go and to transport links. You could also leave luggage there whilst awaiting your flight if you had to, which was so useful. Secure and modern. I would definitely stay...

Stayed here 18-19/06 with my friend for the evening as a last minute trip. Easy to find and not far from all the city had to offer. On arrival we were told we'd been upgraded which was a nice surprise and were given a duplex on the third floor. We were both really surprised how spacious it was and that...

Nice apartment with all the comfort . Very good position , walking distance to city center and to Edinburg castle . Very clean and nice bathroom with shower and kitchen with fire , oven and fridge . Entrance and reception are not at the standard of such place . Looks like a low budget hostel hall as the first 2...

The location is just a little outside of the 'old town' city center (10 min. walk) and in a quiet street. The apartment itself looked a little outdated and scruffy, though it was clean. It looks like the rest of the building is occupied by students, it doesn't seem like a 'proper' hotel. It was okay for one night (and...

We stayed at Richmond Place for several days and were very happy with our choice. Our room was a 2-storey open studio with bedroom upstairs and living room/kitchen below, and a small but complete bathroom. The setup recalled a University residence and indeed parts of the building are used as such. That said, we found it very clean, modern, and...

It was a three night stay five minutes from where I was at a meeting. Well appointed and suitable for my needs. No problems at all. Comfy wee flat. Lots of towels soap and toiletries, and two tellies!

We slept 3 nights. These are apartments that are designed for students and your unit is on 2 levels. Second floor is a double bed with access from only one side of the bed...if both of you get up at night this could be an issue since one side is on the mezzanine side. Tv in the room and a...

I am staying in this property for the second time after a year. It was great experience. The breakfast was one of the best I had in the western world. Very pleasant personnel and calm environment. I was on an academic meeting. It was silent ambience that helped me to work through night to prepare my presentations. It was a...

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.
