The apartment we stayed in this weekend was great. We had an Executive 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom apartment for 4 of us. It was spacious, well equiped, everything worked, it was very clean and there was no mould at all in in the bathrooms (my personal hate in hotels).
The location worked well for us as we could walk into the City Centre and to lots of restaurants etc. Its close (5 mins walk) to Haymarket train station in the West End of Edinburgh. The roads round Haymarket station are a little problematical while the tram system is being installed but its not too bad.
The reception staff were very helpful - especially as our travel plans were much disrupted by the snow which meant that we were unable to get to Edinburgh on Friday night as had been the original plan. The staff had also noted my request for a quiet location if possible and had put us at the rear of the building which was much appreciated - as we did notice there was some noise in the street as we returned from dinner on Saturday evening (presumably students returning to their accomodation further down the road). We also found the secure parking to be very convenient and good value.
There is also a cafe attached to Fountain Court apartments in Grove Street, and a lovely French tea room over the road which we used for afternoon tea and breakfast.
We will certainly return here on our next visit to Edinburgh.
