Our family of 7 traveled to Edinburgh for the first time. We had two apartments rented on the 2nd floor. These rooms were great, plenty of space, nice bathrooms, showers, kitchen area was great. Plenty of places to eat nearby and a little grocery right around the corner. I would highly reccommend any family staying here.

Got an unexpected free upgrade to the EQ2 apartments and found them to be fantastic. Great location and amenities and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Only downside is parking is tought prior to being checked in but this is not an issue with the hotel, more just the city itself. Would definitely stay again!

I enjoyed the few days I spent in EQ-2 recently. All staff I met were super helpful and friendly. There was a water leak from my flat to the one below which was dealt with swiftly and efficiently, so that I was not inconvenienced at all.

Stayed here for a week with a friend for work/holiday. Part of the stay crossed the marathon weekend with peak rates and the rest was £192 per night. The descriptions of the apartments on the website are inconsistent with the reality. The apartments are not luxurious. They need a good renovation and update. Fittings would be at least 10 years...

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.
