There is a double sofa bed in the living/dining area that would sleep a child or small adult.

The apartment building has a communal area. The apartment is on the ground floor. There is one small step into the vestibule. The apartment features an open plan living/dining room. The hallway has both bedrooms, bathroom and utility room leading off it.

-Home Truths-
The beautiful fireplace within this property is decorative only. It is not for guest use for both guest and property safety.

The apartment is within a converted brick print works.

-Booking Requirements-
We require names and ages of all guests, as well as addresses and ID. We will require the lead guest to sign copy of our terms and conditions. We reserve the right to vet any booking. This apartment is not suitable for stag parties, hen parties or young single sex groups or parties. One member of the booking party must be over 25 years. There is a strictly non-smoking policy. A damage deposit of £250 is required one week before arrival and will be fully refunded pending no damages one week after your departure.

Located in the attractive south-side of Edinburgh, the location offers excellent local amenities, whilst only being a short bus ride or within reasonable walking distance of many of Edinburgh's main tourist attractions and city centre. Newington is convenient for the The Queen's Hall, Royal Commonwealth Pool and Arthur's Seat. It is about a 20min walk from the Royal Mile. The apartment is also within reasonable walking distance into the city centre and the walk into town provides the opportunity to investigate many interesting shops and points of interest such as the Edinburgh Meadows and Edinburgh University.

For your breakfast needs, why not stop by the Hellers Kitchen for those mouth –watering, lavish pancakes with bacon and maple syrup and… Definitely worth it! For dinner and drinks then, The Old Bell is a lovely, wood-lined olde worlde place, providing a huge contrast to the New Bell – the New Bell is a fine-dining restaurant that sits above the Old Bell Inn in Causewayside. From the look and feel of the lively pub beneath, you wouldn't necessarily believe that a wonderful restaurant serving well thought out and exquisite Scottish cuisine lies above. Luckily, both Bells are just around the corner from the apartment, and will surely be able to satisfy all your foody and beery needs!

As the apartment is self-catering, why not make your shopping at the Earthy Food Market on Ratcliffe Terrace. Not only do they do a fantastic selection of locally grown produce, fresh baked goods, plants, holistic household items, and gardening supplies, they have meat and game for sale and recently installed a butcher upstairs and have extended the café downstairs. Wholesome salads, quiches, interesting sandwiches and an array of teas and coffees make this a café/shop worth the trip.

Limited Mobility Access

There is a small step into the communal area and a small step into the flat and one step inside the flat.

"Tasteful Comfort in a Good Location

Left on Jan 16, 2016 for a stay in Dec 2015
This apartment had the best equipped kitchen we have experienced. The rooms were well appointed and decorated to make them comfortable, yet roomy.
We really appreciated the washer/dryer! The water colours on the walls, which we assume were done by the owner, were lovely.
The owner greeted us with a delightful winter bouquet and mince tarts, which made us feel very welcomed.. We had fun food shopping in the area and appreciated the owner's recommendations.
We walked everywhere from the apartment. Edinburgh Address staff were very helpful and pleasant to deal with in processing the rental and very prompt with the return of our deposit."

"Dear Siobhan, Dear Hatty,
we would like to thank you very much for all you support and for making our first two months in Edinburgh a real pleasant experience. The apartment was great and your group worked really hard to make us feel at home and supported.
Please send our thanks also to Alison and to all the other members of your staff.

Best regards,
Stefano and Laura"

The owner that met us at the property was very helpful giving sound advice on how to use internal appliances, local amenities and transport links. Service proved by The Edinburgh Address was of a high standard. Staff were very helpful when contacted with queries."

The apartment was very good value and worked very well for us, right size, location spot on, having the extras such as tea, dish washing soap, clothing detergents etc made a huge difference as we did not need to purchase that. Loved the Organic store/cafe round the corner and certainly found buses and taxi's worked very well for us definitely did not need a car.

Was fantastic to be met by the owner Alison and her explanation on how everything worked was a great help especially coming from a different country where little things like garbage sorting etc is often very different. We loved our stay in the apartment it was like a home from home.

Very good value. I think there is no way to improve the acommodation it was impressive. In our opinion the apartment it's great and it was better than we expected so for us it's a 10 over 10. Every thing related to payment, access to the apartment, getting the keys was easy and friendly, we're very happy.

We are so comfortable and happy in your beautifully appointed flat. I especially appreciate all the fresh flowers and the many nice amenities, such as the Au Lait toiletries and the new kitchen supplies (sponge, cloths, etc.)
I'll certainly want to return, which I hope is often as my girls have 4 more years at Edinburgh Uni. Thank you for everything!

[The accommodation represents] very good value. We loved the apartment, the flowers, the extra towels, the lovely Christmas decoration and the warm welcome. It really was a home away from home. The service was very good, our questions were always answered promptly and the contact was always very friendly and helpful.

"The apartment was delightful! Light and airy, well furnished, and very well resourced. A real home from home. A little way out of the centre, but then we needed the exercise, so no problems.
Good, efficient service with regards to communication. The provision of toiletries, tea and coffee, salt and pepper, and even a little olive oil and red wine vinegar was much appreciated."

"When we arrived at the apartment we were very pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of the overall apartment. It had such a homely feel that we found it to be perfect. It was also extremely well equipped and had all of the essentials that we required. The apartment had a modern décor and was the perfect accommodation for celebrating the Hogmany festival. I would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone travelling to Edinburgh and hopefully I will be personally re-booking the apartment when I am next in Edinburgh.

The Edinburgh Address were a hassle free service who provided over and beyond what we expected. The flat was of a very high standard and all of our requests such as late check in & late check out were completed without a single problem. The apartment was so amazing that I actually wish I lived there!! I would like to thank all of the Edinburgh address team for making our Hogmany and my 25th Birthday such a fantastic break."

"Excellent, plenty of space for our party of 4 adults and 1 infant, everything we required was provided and more. Local amenities were more than adequate for day to day bits and bobs and location was ideal, close enough to city centre for easy visiting but far enough away for quieter evenings. The apartment was kitted out to a very high standard and was spotless. Will definitely recommend to friends and family."

"The accommodation is in a great location, centre of town easily reached. I was delighted with the attention to detail in what was provided, no need to take anything with us. If we had children there was plenty to keep them amused - games, books, dvd's. The furnishings were top class.
The service was excellent, great communication, nothing was too much trouble."

"We just returned from our vacation to England, Scotland, France and Italy. While away we stayed at five different self catering accomodations. My entire family agrees (6 of us) that the Causwayside was the best of all of them. The apartment was clean, newly renovated, warm and welcoming. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. The fresh flowers and fruit we received on our arrival made for a warm welcome and the specialty bars of soap and lotions in the bathroom gave a pampered feel to the place. It was easy to get to by public transit (however the bus line 42 schedule is a bit long between buses but that is not the reponsibility of the apartment owner) and if necessary, it can be walked from downtown. This apartment is perfect for a family of 4 but our family of six was comfortable in the space making use of the pull out sofa bed. After being in many other places, this was great value for the money and our only regret was that we didn't spend mor time here. We would definitely go back and recommend to our friends."

"My family and I (inc 2 sons aged 17 months) spent 4 nights at the Causewayside apartment and found that there was everything there that we needed - the cot and highchair that we requested were ready to use and clean when we arrived there. It was beautifully decorated and our stay was very comfortable. A very pleasant stay and we would definitely stay here again, thanks Anna!"
