About Renting short-term accommodation > Why rent a self-catering apartment?

Reasons to rent a self-catering apartment for your trip to Edinburgh.

Price & Location

Going self-catering in Edinburgh’s City Centre will make your holiday cheaper.  No need to pay for expensive taxis back to your budget hotel on the outskirts of Edinburgh, braving rush hour traffic on public transport or spending a small fortune eating out in one of Edinburgh’s admittedly fantastic restaurants or gastro pubs - renting a property close to Edinburgh’s centre allows you to pop home for food and a refresh before heading back out to face whatever that afternoon or evening brings on.

If you are booking for a larger group, the price per person per night generally comes down and booking a self-catering option via edlets.com saves you having to book several rooms in a hotel or B&B.

Edlets.com are delighted to offer a wide range of apartments throughout Edinburgh - from right next to Edinburgh Castle or by The Pleasance and George Square for Edinburgh’s International and Fringe Festivals right out to Edinburgh’s hidden treasures such as Portobello Beach, Edinburgh Zoo or The Royal Yacht Britannia – just let our team know where you want to be and we’ll do our very best to locate you accordingly.


Privacy & Flexibility

When renting a self-catering apartment, you can enjoy your own private space.  You have the entire apartment to yourself, no need to worry about other neighbours - come and please, as you like without having to fit in to anybody else’s routine.


Take the self-catering option to give you flexibility on meal times - great for families and also for the night owls soaking up all Edinburgh has to offer, particularly during the Edinburgh Festival.  Or, if you don’t feel up to doing the cooking yourself, there are many great takeaways in Edinburgh to match all budgets and palates.


We also feature a number of larger apartments with 4, 5, 6 or more bedrooms, so if you need privacy for your family as a whole, then there are options available and you won’t have to worry about any guests through the wall disturbing your children and many of our apartments can also offer cots and highchairs to lighten your load.


Facilities, Space & Variety

Here at edlets.com we offer a fantastic range of different properties to our guests.

From spacious townhouses to cosy snugs, we have it all - if you are looking for something special, let our team of knowledgeable locally based experts know and they’ll do their best to tailor your enquiry to meet any criteria you may have.

There are larger apartments available at a reasonable price so you will have more space and you don’t necessarily need to have people sleeping on the sofas in the living room - though if budget is an issue, sofa-beds can certainly help put that roof over your party’s head for weekend! 

Many of our apartments feature large flat screen televisions, Wi-Fi internet, sizable kitchens, laundry facilities and even the odd swimming pool!  Some of our self-catering apartments do also feature their own outdoor space such as a balcony or a terrace and some even have private or communal gardens - stop coughing, you at the back!
