Recently visited for a long weekend. Our apartment faced a building site which was busy from 7am Saturday & Monday. The hot water was no existent and when we complained, we were told to run the water slower! It meant that to run a bath it took over an hour to run... Then there were the students. We had some...

This is not 5 star quality. The interior is dated. Beds uncomfortable. Very noisy, we have been kept awake every night by students, hen do's etc. the house keeping is poor. The location is good but that's all. Very disappointing stay will not be returning.

Outdated. Not what I would call luxury. Poor quality, old furnishings. Poor technology (eg, broadband quality, tv options). Noisy, particularly at weekends. Reasonably central but so many other better locations in the City. Below average servicing (eg, cleanliness, linen changes, tidiness). Overall more like a 3* than it's 5* billing suggests.

We've now used Fountain Court Apartments a number of times, both here at EQ2 and also over at Grove Executive. For years, we used to use The George Hotel in the centre of town, but to be honest, I don't think we'll ever book another Edinburgh hotel again because as a family, FCA meet all our needs and much more....

Myself & 4 colleagues stayed at these apartments for 5 nights - it was fab to come in at night & just relax - so much better than a hotel. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment - loads of room for us all - one bedroom was ensuite so no waiting for bathroom in the morning. The housekeeping was... More

Brilliant apartment which was within 10 mins of princes street and the castle. Clean and very good standard with the all important wifi included, disappointing that parking had to be paid for, but I suppose that's where the extra cash for the owners comes in. Will def stay here again.

On inspection of each apartment we found one of the windows would not shut, and a blind, however these were reported to reception and maintenace fixed them while we were out. A... More

I stayed here on 27th Novemeber with my parents and 16 month old baby. We stayed in the three bedroom penthouse, and it was fantastic. We were provided with a high chair and travel cot at no extra cost. The apartment itself was well equiped with a washing machine and dishwasher, and the usual iron, ironing board and plenty of...
