The Edinburgh region

The capital city of Edinburgh with its Castle built on a volcano at the top of the Royal Mile and Holyrood Palace at the foot, is a vibrant city of great character, history and charm. There is a multitude of free art galleries museums and gardens as well as lots of other attractions such as Dynamic Earth, Camera Obscura and the Zoo.

Twelve festivals are held each year from the world famous Arts Festival And Fringe Festivals to jazz, film and food festivals, giving an endless display of events, performances and spectacles for you to enjoy - you will be spoilt for choice!


The famous Playhouse Theatre and Omni Entertainment complex are 5 minutes walk away.

A supermarket and many convenient shops can be found a short walk away on Leith Walk, as well as many excellent restaurants and take-aways. The nearby vibrant Broughton Street area is full of contemporary shops, bars, restaurants and cafes and good food outlets.

Only a 10 minutes walk or 3 minute bus ride away is the main shopping area around Princes Street and George Street. You will find everything you could want from department stores to designer shops and boutiques as well as many excellent restaurants and eateries.

Worth a visit nearby are the Royal Botanical Gardens as well as the Ocean Terminal complex where you can tour the Royal Yacht Britannia.

"At home in Edinburgh"

City Apartments was a great location from which to explore Edinburgh. It took just a few minutes to get to Leith Walk with lots of transport options. This included one of the tour bus routes, which was a great way to get to know a lot about Edinburgh in a short time. The driver was happy to drop us off at a bus stop very close to the apartment building too. There was also a convenient spot for parking your car so all transport bases were covered. The manager was very friendly and easy to work with on the details of booking. There was also lots of helpful tips and advice in the apartment to help you make the most of your stay. The apartment was roomy enough for a family of four and the facilities were great. The kids especially liked stayed here because it made them feel very ‘British’. As one stop within a long family holiday, we especially appreciated having great access to the internet, a washing machine and excellent cooking facilities. The beds were very comfortable and it was a nice quiet neighbourhood for sleeping. There are a couple of flights of stairs to navigate with your suitcases so don’t pack too heavy. We found the apartment very affordable and good value for money. I couldn’t find a way to pay that didn’t incur some extra fees (international) so factor in a couple of extra percent if paying from overseas. (But it still worked out to be much better value for money than most Australian city accommodation!) We really enjoyed our time in Edinburgh and happily stay in the City Apartments again if we come back some day.

Many thanks for your detailed review - a lot of useful tips. Edinburgh is such an easy city to get around so glad you found this too. Hopefully you'll come back and see us again in the future.

"Luxurious, clean and comfortable apartment"

We stayed at the apartment for the festival. It was very well decorated with lots of nice touches to make it feel comfortable and a home from home. It was very handy for the local Co-op with a Tesco not far away. Easy access to bus stops with a regular and speedy bus service into the city.

Many thanks for your kind words - much appreciated. It's handy having the local shops on the doorstep - especially if you've no car! Come back and see us again - you never know there may be baby Pandas for your daughter to see next time!

"Excellent Location!"

My wife and our two children (ages 21 and 12) spent a week at the City Centre Apartment. Normally we use timeshares but nothing was available the week we wanted so looked online and found this apartment. The photos showed a nice set up and indeed, it met our needs perfectly! Booking was very easy and the friendly owners were quick to respond to my many questions via email - especially since we were coming from the US. Having the two bedrooms and two bathrooms was great. The apartment was like coming home - everything was there that we needed. It was furnished nicely and was immaculate! There were books to read, DVDs to watch on the flat screen TV, laundry and dish soap, a folder with brochures of local restaurants, museums, tours, and things to do. The one thing I appreciated was the folder with all the operating manuals to the various appliances - which are so different from those in the US - this was extremely helpful. The apartment was an easy 15 minute walk to the Royal Mile and except for the day we drove to Hadrian's Wall, we walked or rode the bus which is just down the street around the corner. Despite the main bedroom facing the street we heard nothing from the outside nor any of the neighbors. It was a very quiet, relaxing retreat. We were hoping to enjoy our time in Edinburgh and not really sure of this first time apartment booking - but any fears we may have had were for naught! We definitely plan to return to Scotland soon and would love to stay at this location again if available. Thank you Terry and Ann for making this a delightful experience for us!

Thank you so much for your nice review and comprehensive comments. Glad you found all of the manuals useful - know exactly what you mean when you go to a different country. We also love the handiness of everything being on the doorstep. Hope to see you back in the near future!

"It was wonderful"

We booked this apartment from Australia for 2 of us and couple of our friends from Germany, all people 55+. On our arrival we’ve got very friendly hello and welcoming fruits, Scottish biscuits and fresh milk. Everything in the apartment was perfectly clean, kitchen fully equipped and all bedding very comfortable. The apartment located on walking distance from the city center and all attractions. It was very pleasant to stay in Edinburgh.

Thanks so much for your kind comments. One of the most important things for us when we go anywhere on a self catering basis is the cleanliness so glad you commented on this. Please come back and see us soon.

"Excellent, well-equipped apartment close to city centre"

We stayed at the apartment for a week in March 2013 and were very impressed. The contact with Terry and Ann (the owners) beforehand always received a prompt response. The apartment itself is located quite close to the city centre, but on a quiet road. Off-street parking was also provided, which was a real bonus. The apartment itself was modern and very well-equipped, with two bathrooms. It was perfect for a family with small children as it's all on one floor (hence no risk of the little one falling downstairs). We'd definitely stay again if we're back in Edinburgh.

Thanks a lot for your review. Look forward to your return in the future.

"perfecte uitvalsbasis met alle noodzakelijke comfort"

op wandelafstand van het centrum, rustige omgeving, voedingszaak onmiddellijk in de buurt, veel bussen op de hoek van de straat, schoon en voldoende ruim appartement, goed uitgeruste keuken, attente verhuurders, kortom, niets op aan te merken!

Many thanks for your review which when translated reads - nothing to criticize! walking distance from the center, in a quiet environment, food store immediately nearby, many buses on the street corner, clean and adequately spacious apartment, well equipped kitchen, attentive landlords, in short. Hope to welcome you back to Edinburgh in the future and thanks for your kind words! (once we figured them out!)

"Excellent apartment, perfect location & friendly owners"

We stayed at this apartment over the New Year break and we were very impressed with the standards and its appliances of the apartment. We were welcomed by tea/coffee and fruit which was very nice. The apartment is located 10 minute walk from Princes Street and has local shops and bars near by. If we went back to Edinburgh we would stay here again!

Thanks for taking the time to review our apartment and for your kind comments. Edinburgh is the place to be over Christmas and New Year and from our experience if we're down over New Year it's great to escape to for a rest!

"Comfortable and relaxing in an excellent location."

Flat was warm and comfortable with everything you could need provided. Great location with parking if required. Easy access to the city either on foot or by bus. Two convenient supermarkets on the doorstep which was a bonus for daily needs.

Thanks for your review. Glad you had a good time and enjoyed your stay. It is handy having everything on the doorstep and saves so much time! Look forward to your return sometime in the future.

"Perfect apartment in great location"

My husband, daughter and I stayed for one week in this lovely 2 bed apartment. The location was perfect and only 10 mins walk to the city, or buses close by. Within a few mins walk there were food shops, great restaurants and pubs. The apartment was modern, clean and had everything you would need. Highly recommend - I would definitely stay there again.

Pleased to hear you had a good week and enjoyed staying in our apartment. Come back and see us on your next trip!

"Perfect apartment for our visit."

We've never rented an apartment like this so I was a little hesitant at first. But this apartment was perfect. We had two couples in our group and this made the perfect home base for visiting Scotland. The apartment was clean, modern, well appointed, in a great location for Edinburgh and comfortable for our stay. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay there.

Staying in an apartment rather than a hotel gives you so much more freedom. It's good to come back, get your feet up and relax. So glad you enjoyed the experience and hope you come back in the future.
