The Lothians 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!
