My husband proposed to me at the University of Edinburgh Library while we were staying here. So this place is very special to me for biased reasons. The apartment is perfectly located. Itd just the right distance to walk into restaurants and eventually to the city centre. Unless of course it is cold, windy and rainy! Which it was on... More

Window in bedroom was broken , and despite being double glazed, it was very noisy. Did not sleep even in Comfy bed. No hot water to wash at night. Kitchen and bathroom clean, but carpets in poor state. General decor very tired and things broken poorly repaired.

Having read some poor reviews for these apartments, we were pleasantly surprised! The apartment was absolutely spotless, spacious and really comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the sound system that covered every single room! The kitchen was really well supplied with crockery and appliances: we ate out most of the time but it would be easy to cater for yourself here. The... More

Not happy at having to pay a deposit as this was on a business account and wasn't informed of this prior to arrival! You have to park, go to reception, then park in their car park, then walk to your apartment about 3mins away-not too far but far enough with 3 bags Room is nice, wifi is firewalled with limited...

Having an apartment is to have the convenience of making your own meal. The reception for this apartment is 5-min walk from it in another Fountain Court Apartment. The site is reasonably convenient because it is not too far away from the Haymarket station. Many small Sainsbury/Tesco shops are nearby. There is a gate that will be locked in the... 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.
