Fabulous base for visiting Edinburgh. Apartment for brilliant, with everything we needed. Traffic noise outside, which didn’t bother me as I slept like a log but woke my husband a few times. For the room price though, well worth it but maybe take ear plugs.

8/10 Very good

If you’re coming to Edinburgh for a few days, Destiny Charlotte Sq. is a great option. However, here are the pros and cons I gave my stay a pleasant and not excellent: Pros: - Location is excellent, you’ll be surrounded by beautiful views of the Gardens and surrounded by great food. -Security, we felt safe as you need an access code to enter the building/apartments. -The space is very efficient and well decorated. It has a full kitchen and living room. -Customer service response via email is timely and clear. Now some of our cons: - We got the castle view apartment and a day before we arrived we were noticed that our window was broken due to “high winds.” We stayed anyways because it was too late to find another place, but we were not offered any refunds or anything. After all, we chose the location for thw specific view, and had half of it boarded up. - While the bed is a good size, it could be a wee bit more comfortable. - We were awakened early morning by loud hammering two out of the three nights we stayed. Overall, I believe that the pros outweigh the cons, and if you’re looking for a centric and efficient stay in Edinburgh, this is the right place.

Great Location for walking to everything. (Sopping ; Dining; Sights) Lack of Lift could be an issue for people with walking issues to the upper floors. Not a convenient place for drop-off by car as it is on a busy road / corner with no convenient stopping places.

Pre-arrival woes
A couple of days before I was due to check in, i received a message saying my card could not be charged and they would release my room if i fail to call back and provide another credit card for charging by 5pm the next day. While traveling, i did not check my emails regularly and by the time i saw the message in the evening, it was past the office hours 9am - 5pm to call back. When I called back the next day, i was first told that it was not necessary to provide a credit card. Shortly after I received another email indicating they made a mistake and needed my card. This caused a lot of anxiety for me, worrying that my booking will be released. Upon arrival, there is no check in services and the code i was given to access the place was not working. I had to try calling the emergency number for another code to access.
