Stayed in these apartments with some friends in July and although the apartment was a good size to cater for our size, it wasnt really my usual scene (I didnt pick the accommodation). After struggling to find 'the door' to where our apartment was when we got inside we found it just hadnt been well maintained at all, the rooms... More

This is quite honestly the most horrific experience I have ever been party to whilst travelling. Firstly, although there was many a nice sight walking from the train station to my little slice of hell for a couple of days, I certainly misjudged where the centre of the city of Edinburgh was. Needless to say a protein bar and a... More

Stayed for a week - just left today and was glad to go. The apartment was at best basic and certainly not welcoming. The shower room had thick black mould in it which was cleaned up after we complained. The kitchen essentials were just that. There were two tin openers and both were broken. We had one bath towel each... More

Booked this accommodation for my daughter's graduation. We had five adults and two children under five staying. The flats are in an excellent location for all activities with connection for buses just across the street, there is also a good selection of pubs and restaurants all around. The flat had a basic equipped kitchen and the bedrooms were fine, two... More

We stayed here for4 days end of June. Price was reasonable but not cheap but we were exceptionally disappointed with the apartment. The hot water boiler went out one day and even when it was supposedly fixed it was intermittently on and off!! The beds were uncomfortable and definitely needed replacing. In short the whole apartment is in need of... More

I admit to skepticism over these apartments prior to arriving. Frankly, they were so inexpensive compared to other apartments in central Edinburgh that I was sure they would be really bad, but took a chance anyway because Lisa McKinney was so incredibly nice to deal with. We were pleasantly surprised by the location in Tollcross. My husband and I with... More

My friend and I did not enjoy our stay here. We had to climb three flights of stairs to get to our room as there was no lift available. The reception is in a different building therefore we had no contact with the owner other then when we first arrived. The street outside was extremely noisy. If returning to Edinburgh... More

Stayed here for a a weekend with some friends, two bedrooms plus proper sofa bed in lounge, impressed with facilities, we even had a microwave and washing machine, shower had constant hot water, what makes this place is the location, ten minutes from the castle, really central, lots of local shops, bars, restaurants etc, was worried it might be noisy...

Stayed in a one-bedroom apaprtment with my family for a long weekend. Much more convenient than a hotel for the kids and within walking distance to all of the main attractions. The apartment block itself is not much to look at from the street - in fact its quite easy to miss, however the interior has been well appointed and... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods 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 theaters 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.
