The Fountain Court Apartments was our base for a four day stay in the Edinburgh region. We (five people) had everything we needed, it was contemporary furnished, the place was very clean and pleasant and a light-bulb and a clock that didn't work was fixed in a matter of minutes by the attentive staff. Nice, quiet surroundings by the canal,... More

We spent 4 nights at this apartment which was beautiful. My husband, baby and I enjoyed having a two storey apartment with two bathrooms to ourselves. The kitchen was kitted out with a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. All in great working order. There was enough cultlery and saucepans to use. We would definitely come here again and have recommended... More

We stayed two nights with Fountain Court Apartments EQ2 so we could watch Scotland Vs Wales rugby match with our son who studies in Edinburgh. The kick off was 3pm and check in was 3pm - what a dilemma but the staff were extremely helpful and flexible, allowing us access to our apartment at 2.30pm so we could settle in... 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.
