We stayed on the 3rd floor apartment for the hogmanay festival 2015. There was six of us. The apartment was spacious, the kitchen was fully equipped and the toilets were 100%.

Located just next to the canal, I was on the 3rd floor in a three bedroom appartment that had lovely water views from 2 out of the 3 bedrooms in the appartment. The place had just been recently painted (which smelt a little but understandable for maintenance purposes). Rooms were quite spacious with a large common room. Fully equipped kitchen... More

We stayed here for three nights at the end of October 2014 and I can't recommend it enough. The location is quiet, but only 15 minutes' walk from Princes Street.

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.
