Hopefully the title has drawn your attention to this post. I'll attempt to describe what this place is like. The location is good, next to shops, pubs and the train (&bus) station. It's a short walk over to the Royal Mile. However, it's down a poorly lit side alley and to be honest, quite noisy. The room we had was... More

This is exactly what is says it is - student accommodation. 8 of us stayed for a week to visit the Fringe. It was just what we hoped for - smack in the centre of town, clean, warm, all the things you need to make a cup of tea, a sandwich or whatever. It was no frills but then it... More

Stayed here for two nights recently as it was one of the cheaper options,that wasn't a backpackers. If you are looking for something basic and affordable this is a great place to stay,friendly staff on hand and they will let you store luggage on check out day.

James Court Apartments are student accomodation that is let out during the holiday period. Don't expect the room to look anything like the pictures posted on the website as there are no 'added touches' and everything is very plain. The room was clean, however nothing additional is provided besides toilet paper. Bathroom soap is not even provided at all. There... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during Edinburgh festival. Great location, merely a stones throw from all the action yet still quiet. Rooms clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Yes, it is student accommodation being rented out over summer but is cheaper than most Edinburgh hotels at this time of year and you have the option to self-cater which suited... More

These so called apartments are being advertised as a hotel in many websites so beware. They are student accommodation which are rented out during the holidays. Myself and husband booked two nights away for our anniversary, and when you finally find the building right at the back of St James's shopping centre it looks like a prison. We were given... More

Walk out of the spiral staircase in the winter evening and you are in Old Edinburgh. Fantastic atmosphere, fantastic location. Apartments are a little tired. I come into Edinburgh to work and to enjoy the city. These are perfect on both of these counts.

I have been coming to st james court apartments now for 8 years. This place is great value for money, and is very luxurious. The owner is very friendly and likes to make her guest welcome. This place has the wow factor and you feel more comfortable than you do at home. I cant wait to go back in 2... More
