“Amazing, just like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2006

Where do I start?

Arrived on 1st Aug to EDI and then got a taxi to the apartments this cost £15.00 and the taxi driver knew exactly where it was, i was prepared to show him the map I had printed out from previous advise on here from other reviewers.

Check in was easy, even though I had already pre paid for the apartment had to leave credit card details, I think this was incase we broke anything. We booked a one bed apartment but were upgraded and ended up with a two bedroom on the groundfloor (No 15).

I think we was lucky as this was much bigger than we expected and by the looks of the other apartments it was a much larger one.

Im so glad I booked an apartment instead of a hotel as the space was welcomed after walking around Edinburgh all day and just coming back and sinking into the huge leather sofas.
The location was excellent far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the centre and you could actually get a table in the nearby restuarants not like on one night we decided to walk into the centre (around the royal mile) and couldnt find anywhere with a free table, so ended up in a nice Italian just off princess street, my advise is if you do this to go early as we went about 8pm.
Its about a 20min walk to the royal mile and same with the middle of Princess street, about a 10min walk to the castle.

I just didnt want to come home! Definatly recommend these apartments.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2006

I stayed almost a month in Edinburgh for a convention at FC Apts EQ-2.

The Apartments are located in a neighbourghood that's being completely rebuilt, so you sometimes feel surrounded by constructions sites. That said, the location is extremely convenient if you are attending a convention or business meeting (less than 10 min. walk from EI convention center), not that great is you need to be around the New Town or the Train Station. Lots of shops/restaurants within walking distance.

The Apartments have all the facilities you need to feel at home, and even invite guests to dinner or party so it's great value specially if you are staying more than a week. I stayed in a Duplex, and the only (minor) problem for us where that you get no phones in the rooms, just one phone in the living room (not even cordless). Very inconvenient: you just could not hear it or had to rush downstairs.
