I stayed here for 4 days over Easter and it was amazing. The apartment was modern, clean and extremely spacious. There was a Tesco Express nearby which saved us money on food. Moreover there were a number of bus-stops nearby which made our travelling smooth!

I stayed here for a few nights on business and was surprised at just how space there was. The apartments are furnished very simply but have all the essentials including hair dryer and fan as it got quite warm. Most importantly the bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean, and reception were very attentive for the duration of my stay.

This place has everything you need: washer/dryer, kitchen with sink, fridge, dishwasher. I traveled with 2 other guys and we stayed comfortably in the apartment. There is a pull out sofa bed and compartmentalized spaces. The location is pretty good. Edinburgh is a relatively small city. We usually walked into the main city area or hired a cab/taxi. They also... More

The Stay City Apartments are a good place to stay, especially if you are in Edinburgh for a few days, as we were. There is an equipped kitchen in the apartment. You can request an apartment with a washing machine - essential if you are staying for awhile. Apartment was clean, and we had a car, so being able to... More

Stayed here last week with two friends in a studio apartment for the Open Golf weekend. Apartment was as advertised, clean and warm. Reception staff were also warm and friendly and very helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are after a bolthole with a good shower and confortable bed.

Rooms somewhat small, but nice and it has comfort. Location is good, though not the best. Some improvements would make it so much better, specially in the bathroom. It has WiFi, but it is not good, and you cant always count on it. It is worth looking at, but if you are looking for somewhere central, then this may not... 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.
