LOCATION - was great for being a tourist in Edinburgh, as it was about a 10-25 minute walk to everything we wanted to see. CLEAN - I tend to be a stickler about cleanliness and I'm happy to report that at no time did I feel the urge to scrub, dust or vacuum a thing! Ah….very nice. :-D BATHROOM -... More

The room is in a wing of a University dorm, with most of the people in the building being students. The room I stayed in was split-level, with a nice, though small, bathroom with shower on the landing, a nice bedroom area on the upper level, and a small kitchen counter, desk, table with chairs downstairs (with a TV on...

Richmond Place Apartments are a good choice for a stay in Edinburgh if space and location are a priority. We were visiting the university; besides the colleges, food, drink and Holyrood Park were all within easy walking distance. The studio apartment (we were in one for four people) was big enough not to feel cramped in; there was a separate... More

25/07 - 29/07/14. Stayed 4 nights here. The apartment was compact, split over two levels. Located in a large block, don't expect good views from your window. Clean on arrival. Basic, but all necessary self-catering appliances. 24hr porter which was good for our late check-in at midnight. Free wifi. Good location, short walk (10-15mins) from the Royal Mile and Arthur's...

I have to admit I was really quite disappointed with my stay here . The reviews had all been good but I was quite disappointed. Our studio was tiny. It was not technically a studio either as the bedroom was a balcony overlying your lounge and the bed had a glass screen right next to it. If you are scared... More

I stayed over at the Richmond Place Apartments at the end of July of 2014. We stayed in apartment 103 Which was perfect in every way. Modern facilities, beautifully cleaned, comfortable bed and a powerful shower, it was the perfect base for a young couple to return to after exploring the city of Edinburgh. Staff were very welcoming which was... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at Richmond Place Apartments, as a family of 3 we were delighted with the Superior Studio Apartment (Room 116), very modern & impressively clean we would thoroughly recommend this accommodation. Will definitely book in here whenever we return to Edinburgh.

Have just returned from these apartments on a 4 night city break and I have to say that my expectations were exceeded. The apartment itself was lovely. Very clean and modern. The bed was very comfortable. The entire apartment was spotless from top to bottom. The location is very convenient. We got the tram from the airport to Princes Street... More

Came here with my partner. The apartment was lovely!! But we were woken up at 0630 every morning by the work which is ongoing right below the apartments and outside! This was not explained to us when we booked and the work is apparently ongoing for a further 6 weeks! If I knew of this I wouldn't have stayed! Any... More

We have just came back from the Richmond studio Apartments.... I looked at lots of reviews before booking. I found the apartments very easy to find. I looked on google street before arriving. We took the airport bus to Wavery Station and it took roughly 10 minutes to walk too. The apartments are very clean, modern and well worth the... More
