I stayed here with three friends. The apartment was lovely, well worth the money. Nice and clean and well equipped. My only gripe is the sofa bed. These desperately need replacing. I did mention this on leaving and the receptionist informed me they were hoping to replace them all from May. They really do need to do this, as apart... More

We booked this hotel without doing any research, and as the trip came closer i did a bit of research and read a few quite bad reviews which put some doubts in my mind about our choice. Thankfully these doubts were unfounded. We got checked in very quickly and went to have a look at our apartment. My only complaint... More

We stayed for two nights in Feb 2015. It was a nightmare to find parking near by and we had to carry our bags over a mile in the end. The apartment was small and the living room area was very small didn't have a sofa in so we didn't use the apartment as we had originally planned. There was... More

The hotel/apartments are in a great location. Very close to The Royal Mile, Castle etc and opposite Arthur's Seat. The room is very modern and well equipped but they are quite small and the pictures do make it look like they are bigger. Due to the fact that the rooms are compact, it makes noise an issue. You can hear... More

We stayed here, in a studio apartment, with our two children in the middle of December. The apartment was clean, inexpensive, nicely decorated and well equipped. It's well situated for Holyrood and the Royal Mile. On the downside the room is open plan with the main bed situated on a small balcony overlooking the double sofa bed below so every... More

We stayed here for one night because it was one of the cheapest places we found in the city centre. When we got there we found out it was student accommodation on all over floors bar he third. The room was compact but had everything we needed. The bathroom was behind the door, with a shower, toilet and sink. It... More

It's small however decor and facilities to high standard. Located about 5min walk from royal mile. Quiet location so just perfect. Only downside was the... More

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
