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...

Good choice for a family stay. Well equipped, except for a corkscrew and a tea-cosy (please add these!). Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, bit of street noise on weekend nights (but that would be fairly standard for urban Edinburgh). Well located for public transport and amenities. We'd stay again.

We are a family with an adult son. We have stayed at SouthSide Apartments 7 Newington Road for a week. The location is fine, it's about 20 minutes by foot to the city center, close to the Univercity, easy access by bus. The apartment is spacious and well-equipped, pubs and supermarket are nearby. Two comfortable bedrooms with a shared bathroom...

This was a lovely apartment. In total there were six of us staying in the apartment. There were three bedrooms with double beds but there were also three sofas in the living room which could be used as sofa beds too. The apartment itself was clean and there were a lot of towels available. There are lots of little shops...

My husband and I were visiting our daughter for the holidays. We found the flat exactly what we were looking for. A nice kitchen area with microwave and clothes washer. The location is also a nice factor. Several local bus stops to get into town. Also is not that far of a walk into the city. We had Flat#1 at...

Lovely place to stay, very central and shops and resturants nearby. We went to a lovely steak resturant a two minute walk! Man on arrival was very helpful & informed us of luggage storage available at the bus station and to take the tram to the airport. He also saved us from a diaster- we left our keys at apartments...

The location was central but finding the apartment for the 1st time is almost like trying to locate the platform 9 3/4 in Harry Potter - you will miss it if you are not used to the small hole-in-the-wall numbers. We spent almost half an hour trying to locate it based on GPS but ended up having to call to...

Getting the keys worked as described, although I'm not a fan of telephone numbers you have to call on arrival at the airport that pick up and put you in a queue. I'd prefer not to be on hold for a long time on my mobile. The flat was clean, pleasantly decorated and furnished and had everything we needed for...

Fab location - we were in Edinburgh for a concert at Queens Hall and the apartment is a five minute walk away. The apartment itself could be fantastic, however was a bit tatty in places (needed a repaint, floor replacing in bathroom) and overall needed a good clean. WIFI, whilst free is very poor. Due to it's location, there is...
