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.

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.

They were helpful except failing to return phone messages and not letting us leave our bags in the hall for 2 hours after checkout. David said we should use the station, which charged £60 for holding the bags and we had to queue for nearly half hour.
