The apartment was scruffy round the edges. Some scuff marks on the sofa, carpet stained, kitchen basically stocked. Kitchen cabinets badly fitting or peeling, but what you get is a large apartment, excellent bathrooms nice white fluffy towels and a relatively good location. Its certaintly not 5 star but as an alternative to a hotel, more freedom, tesco express 1...

great location in a developing area at the heart of edinburgh ideal for shopping theatre or dining rooms on canal front definitely the best, as significant building going on around apartments that detract from side room abience

You can easily live a few days in these apartments, good facilities, plenty of room and convenient on site parking. We used taxis to get around, around £5-7 to/from Waverley station end of Edinburgh. Make sure you know the address though, as taxi drivers struggled to find it! Would stay again.

Our staying at the EQ2 was excellent: the apartment was very clean and comfortable. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Very quite location and walking distance from/to the city centre and the Meadows (an amazing park!). In the morning we enjoyed walking along the canal, which starts just in front of the building. Highly recommended!!

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
