There is the possibility to store bagage after check-out. Located close to the city center, in front of the Airport's trams stop. If u need an apartment, check first this organisation because I think... More

Apartment was great, lots of space, good parking area, New Town is a good walk but buses in front of location. Restaurant Origano in Leith Walk makes best pizza, also glutenfree (delicious). Edinburgh Zoo is definately worth is visit!

We visited these apartments with big expectations, after all they have certificate of excellence. The location was superb, the gentleman who met us was very polite and helpful.

Booked this apartment quite late for Ed Fringe season. Despite the timing the price is definitely reasonable. For the Fringe it was only 20 mins walk from the centre of the fringe and located next door to the best breakfast we had for the stay.
