Key features

Extravagance awaits you at The South Charlotte Street Residence. Nestled in the West End between Princes Street and George Street, this fabulous property mixes comfort with splendour to create a unique home from home. With four bedrooms sleeping up to 8 guests, oodles of light and space, and luxury fittings throughout, the South Charlotte Street Apartment is one heck of a find. As if the glorious interior wasn’t enough, you’re also treated to a prime location just off of one of Edinburgh’s favourite Georgian Squares, Charlotte Square, with Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile just a haggis’ throw away.

The very generous living and dining room is decorated in chic mid-century modern with a teal and mushroom palette, and has ample seating, including an extra large sofa and armchairs. Double, full-length windows let in plentiful daylight, highlighting the thoughtful interior design and traditional Georgian features lovingly maintained. A grand dining table allows for a sophisticated sit down occasion if you fancy rustling up some culinary treats, no doubt using fresh delicacies purchased locally. Entertainment needs are also catered for, with colossal flat screen TV and WiFi. The petite kitchen is perfectly formed, boasting minimal, modern design, and all the appliances you could desire, and even a small breakfasting bar.

Four sizeable bedrooms invite you in for a soothing night’s sleep, all decorated in calming, neutral tones but each with their own distinct style. Guests can choose from one double bedrooms, and two king rooms, and one twin or king room (adjustable bed), all equipped with storage space, large windows, and two with en suite shower rooms. The family bathroom is yet another slice of modern luxury, and features shower over bath.

The local area couldn't be any better. Set beside Princes Street and George Street, shopaholics are in for a real treat; as are culture enthusiasts in search of Edinburgh's most famous attractions, with the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle, Old Town and other favourites just minutes away. The popular area of Stockbridge, a quaint village-like district packed with independent businesses and galleries, is around a ten minute stroll North via the tree-lined roads of the New Town.

I stayed in this apartment last year and was pleased with it so booked it again. Unfortunately this time the apartment was grubby and very tired with lots of general maintenance needed. I appreciate that the pandemic has been hard on this industry but when charging these prices you need to keep up with basic maintenance. Excellent size and location.


Did contact the caretaker on Whatsapp during stay and although it was read I did not get a response.

Our response

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are glad that you find the apartment to be a good size and well located. We are sorry to hear of your concerns with the maintenance of the property - most of these have now been dealt with and the remaining items are being worked on as we move into the quieter season. The Property Manager has confirmed that he received your WhatsApp message and noted the points raised - he apologises for not having responded at the time to acknowledge receipt of the message. We hope despite these issues you enjoyed your trip to Edinburgh and hope to welcome you back to Reserve Apartments again soon

It was very good that Reserve Apartments survived the last 18 months, tough times for all. They did not operate a refundable deposit scheme or allow people to roll their deposits forward to the next year (we lost ours last year with them) despite that we booked again with them this year as the apartment was one of the few of the right size in the best location. Also this policy probably allowed them to survive the last year.
David was a bit sparse in his communication, but Natalie was extremely responsive to our every question and need and we only had to mention something was missing or not working and it was replaced or fixed within hours.


As one would expect the apartment was not as bright and colourful as in the photographs. Some of the furniture shown in the pictures was missing.
The Apartment was clean and very comfortable, but there were food splashes up the walls in the kitchen which could have been cleaned off before we got there. Also coffee stains on the walls in the hall, not Reserves fault but a bit more attention to detail would be good.
The curtains in the main room were partly hanging off the rails.
None of the extractor fans worked in the bathrooms when we arrived but Reserve were getting those fixed as soon as we told them.
This is not a cheap apartment but having checked this is the price you have to pay for four double bedrooms in the centre of Edinburgh during the Fringe, and the location is excellent, very central and just off the really noisy parts of the city.
If we wanted to do this again we would probably booked this apartment again.

Our response

Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that our Property Management team was on hand to assist with any issues that arose. After continuously reviewing our policies throughout the pandemic we are now offering date changes or vouchers for bookings where we are unable to legally accommodate guests on their check-in date due to government restrictions. Thank you again for staying with Reserve Apartments - we look forward to welcoming you back again soon

well located and comfortable apartment,.<br />insufficient kitchen equipment to make food: no big pan or casserole to make pasta for 8 for example, no salad bowl ...<br />room on the noisy street and smell of sewage in the double room

Our response

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. Both ourselves and the property owner were very disappointed to hear that you were unhappy with the apartment. Thank you for bringing the issue regarding the lack of utensils to our attention. I can confirm that the property owner has taken your points on board and has now provided new utensils suitable for large groups. We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused by the plumbing issue which resulted in the sewage smell in one of the bedrooms. I can confirm that this issue has now been resolved and the owner provided you with a 25% refund of the total cost of your accommodation to compensate for this inconvenience.
However, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the rest of the apartment and the great location. We hope to welcome you back to Edinburgh in the future.
