The apartment was clean and very spacious, spec'd to a high standard and was in a good location, with easy access to local amenities etc. Reception staff were friendly and accommodating, our apartment was ready hours before the estimated check-in time and we were promptly informed that we could check in at our convenience.

The apartment was new, spacious and immaculate. The beds were also very comfortable. The standard of accommodation is high in comparison to many other vacation apartments in Edinburgh. The location is fairly central so it is easy to reach key areas of the downtown core by walking, bus or taxi and there are shops and amenities close by. When I... More

Service at reception was excellent. The apartment was absolutely lovely: Warm, clean, great view of the castle. Amazing shower and nice fluffy towels. Loved the underground parking and the fact we could have the dog with us. It made exploring Edinburgh very easy. I would definitely stay here again.

Located by the old Union Canal in an area in the midst of rejuvenation but not there yet. Apartment was totally comfortable and competent but slightly soulless. Location is within reasonable reach of Princess Street (10mins) and the Meadows (7 mins). A reasonable selection of food and drink outlets within 5 mins but generally not an area for wining and...

Parking, helpful staff, central location. Comfortable beds. Very clean. Good quality power showers. All amenities of a hotel but felt like a home from home. Lots of restaurants and bars close by. Close to Kings theatre and Usher Hall.

After an exhausting work trip to India and an unpleasant series of flights to Edinburgh, I was dead on my feet when I arrived late in the evening.

Lovely apartments in a pretty location, only a short taxi ride away from the city centre. The apartments themselves are stunning and have great views. They are also well-equipped. As a large group, the people who ran the apartments were very helpful in terms of organising us before we went and whilst there. I would definitely go back.

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.
