I am a student and have a room here. I also used this place to put up my family during a holiday. Here are what is disturbing about Richmond Place Apartments: 1. The fire alarms go off almost every other day, usually at 9am because someone took a hot shower or used a blow dryer. This is not an exaggeration,... 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

Stayed here with my husband, sister and her partner. When booking it stated room1 and room2. However it's all open plan with the bed up on a balcony overlooking the ground floor with sofa bed. 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

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.
