Stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment, very pleasantly surprised at the size of the rooms especially the kitchen/diner and the lounge/diner. One bedroom was ensuite with large shower and the other 2 bedrooms had access to a bathroom (with shower over bath), this bathroom looked to have suffered a bit of water damage of the cupboard under the sink for some...

The Edinburgh Playhouse Apartments provided everything that we needed for our recent stay in Edinburgh. The apartments (we stayed on two different occasions) were clean and spacious with enormous beds and everything provided for a very comfortable stay. Located in a quiet neighbourhood, close to buses and walking distance to many attractions and great eating places, we can't recommend theses...

Stayed here while on a long weekend trip. And have to say I'm glad I picked this over a hotel. The apartments themselves are incredible, modern and well maintained. The kind of place you can really feel at home in, they're better than most of the apartments I've lived in. Prices are steep in tourist season, but you pay for...

Stayed here for one night during the festival. Allocated a lovely two bedroom apartment. Very quiet location but within easy walking distance of the shops, bars, transport. Nice modern building. Lovely interior with well furnished lounge, excellent kitchen facilities, two bathrooms, spotlessly clean. We will definitely return.

Three of us have come up to Edinburgh for a few days at the festival and are staying here. It is wonderful. A large, immaculately clean comfortable 2 bedroom apartment with kitchen, living dining room, 2 bathrooms. All beautifully presented. We also have a parking space on the complex - though not immediately outside the flat. We're situated on Hopetoun...

Close proximity to the city centre - easy walking distance to the bars and clubs (10 mins max uphill) Taxis were cheap £7/£8 and held 5 or 6 people !! We were on the 4th floor so quite a...

We stayed here on a hen do. Adequate apartments, there was still a bit of evidence from the last hen do that visited (apartment not cleaned brilliantly, hen do confetti/dust left from previous party). However, apartments were perfect for our needs, large, spacious, fully equipped, towels and bedding inc, walking distance from city centre but also cheap in a taxi....

I had terrible experience with water and washing machine. Water was having foul smell, and was not transparent. Complained it to maintenance folks and they accepted it as issue after I showed it to them. Washing machine stuck after few minutes and clothes were stuck inside, luckily they offered to get them washed outside but clothes were soaked for more...

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.
