The location is very good, within walking distance from many city attractions and the university. Rooms are spacious, but be aware that some appartments have internal stairs. Since it is mainly populated by students, if you are there when new students arrive, it can be very crowded and you may need to wait for the elevator.

We stayed here for just one night during the Fringe festival. The apartments were the best value accommodation around at that time. The apartment itself was compact but fantastic with a well thought out layout. With some cooking facilities/small kitchen you could be self sufficient if you wanted to be. We didn't want to cook as there was so much...

Stayed here to attend a party in Edinburgh. Was say it's pretty basic and small.not the cleanest rooms either. the rooms they offer on the website ain't the rooms you get. If if I spread my arms out I could touch both walls. I guess you get what you pay for. Wouldn't return

This is part of the university residence; so it feels a bit like a dorm. It has laundry facility. Location is convenient. We stayed in a suite with a hallway, a separate bedroom, and a living room with a sofa bed, so it is good for family. Overall a good experience.

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...

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.
