could not fault this place at all, everything you could need and more was provided. Staff are more than happy to help. Room attendents are very helpful as was the check in staff.. will be staying here again without a doubt. Only problem we had was with the sound system but this was quicky fixed when our apartment got cleaned.....

Third time here. Ideal for families as the apartments are large and excellent value for money. Beginning to show their age and some of the fittings could do with replacement. Kitchen is well equipped and good for dining in. Main drawback is the slightly bleak surroundings. The area is on the process of being developed but this seems to be...

Stayed for 2 evenings whilst on business, and hard to fault the location, the apartment itself or the great service from reception. I'd particularly highlight the quality of the room interior, its spaciousness and comfort and the range of facilities (2 ipod docks, 2 TVs, bluray player, etc) However, I was very frustrated by the medieval wifi policy which blocked...

Booked this as a trip for my husbands 50th Birthday so wanted the apartment to be good. Was not disappointed!!

Also in a great location, on...

We enjoyed our stay at Fountain Court apartments in Edinburgh. Very friendly staff and lovely clean bedrooms, living room and kitchenette. My only complaint was that the beds were not very comfortable. Will definitely stay there again.

We have stayed in EQ2 quite a few times now and have been in 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and 2 penthouses. Each time the apartments have been excellent. Always good to have one with a canal view. Its worth asking when you book. To have secure car parking is excellent. £8 a night but thats good for the city....

The location is great and the price for new year in Edinburgh for two couples was excellent. The apartment was a two bedroom, two bathroom, had everything in it that you would need, I did not find the beds very comfortable but we are not talking luxury hotel. The Apartment was quite and you can not here any noise from...

We booked this self-catering hotel for a quick trip to Edinburgh with family visiting from the states, and were pleasantly surprised. Clean, modern and spacious. We had four adults and a young child and were very comfortable for our 3 night stay. The location is a good 20 minute walk from city center, but worth it for the space, rate...

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.
