We were all very pleased we stayed here. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly both before and during our stay. The appartment was elegant, very spacious and spotlessly clean. Facilities were very good. Close to the centre.

The apartment we stayed in was within walking distance of the Royal Mile. We did not need to get any taxi or bus. It was spacious, cozy and very clean. The kitchen was well furbished. there was also a lovely garden outside. We loved it.

Lots of things that caused a good impression: the reception, the cleaness, the kitchen stuff, the comfort of the bedroom and the living room, the restaurants near the apartment... Lots of reasons to feel like being there again when in Edinburgh next time.

The location is excellent with lots of shops and places to eat on Newington road. The bedrooms are on the back so the road noise (buses and ambulances) did not bother...

We had a pleasant and comfortable stay during a long weekend with our children. The apartment 4 we had was great and completely suited our needs. Fully equipped with all household equipment. We didn't had personal contact with the owner, only by phone which is of course a little bit impersonal. All guidelines and information were available on hard copies....

We recently stayed at SouthSide Apartments while visiting our daughter who is studying at the university for a semester. Our flat (#4 upstairs) had plenty of space with 2 bedrooms, one full bathroom plus a separate shower/sink room, and a huge living space with kitchen, dining table, TV and enormous sectional couch. The high ceilings and tall windows added to...
