Just returned home from a fabulous nights stay at Fountain Court Apartments EQ2. Fantastic 3 Bed apartment, accommodation, cleanliness and staffing ticked all the boxes. My friends with me wished we had booked for longer. Very comfortable, spacious and relaxing accommodation. In fact we wished we had stayed in rather than pop out for a meal. We will definitely return.

We booked our apartment on line after reviwing the photos and comments and we were not disappointed. The apartment we had # 37, was spacious and very comfortable, a real pleasure after many pokey hotel rooms. The location is within walking distance of the main town centre and all its attractions. We even did some home cooking and caught up... More

For our party of 4, we had booked a 3 bedroom penthouse apartment. It was very well equipped with all and I do mean all amenities. TVs in every bedroom, a very large and spacious lounge with large, comfortable settees and a very well equipped kitchen with ample cutlery and crockery. The washing machine and dishwasher were a welcome addition... More

We were booked into Fountain Court Apartments for 4 nights, but left after the first night. On the down side....carpeting was filthy, all the interior apartment doors are on springs, so they were constantly slamming, very unattractive and inconvenient neighborhood and worst of all...there were mice in the apartment. The apartment building sits on a canal which we thought would... More

Friendly, helpful staff. Exceptionally clean and equipped apartment, would definitely use this accommodation again when visiting the city. It is well situated within easy walking distance of most areas of the city. The price of the apartment is more favourable than the cost of a hotel for the same period.

Good value apartments, walkable to the city's shopping/cultural areas. Very relaxed facilities with a daily team of cleaners and a good view of the canal. Particularly good is the short stay options and their dog friendliness - both available when we visited. The staff were very responsive to our needs eg more cooking equipment, plates cups etc. My only criticism... More

Comfortable, modern, warm & great hot water. It's a small development at the inner end of the canal. We had penthouse, open & spacious, easily big enough for 6. Friends have stayed in the 'standard' units and say also good. Worth asking for canal-side apartment, better views of the skies and changing weather! Decor is bland, so not boutique, but... 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.
