Fountain Court Apartments - EQ2
Ranked #99 of 150 Hotels in Edinburgh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 9, 2012

We have stayed in the EQ2 apartments twice now and cannot recommend them highly enough. Perfect for families - cots, high chairs etc. all available upon request. The apartments are very spacious, clean, and comfortable. Views over the canal or castle are superb and provide entertainment for children. The apartments are very well equipped - so much easier and better than staying in a hotel. Daily cleaning / bed making service is great. For families, this is an excellent option.

Room Tip: It's worth asking for a room with a canal view

My daughter and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two nights in October/November. The apartment was spacious, well kept and had generally good facilities, and the staff were helpful.

The only point I'd make a little different from most previous reviewers is that they're not quite as central as might be thought -- the walk to, say, the Royal Mile isn't that far when it's a clear dry day, but is a bit of a schlep when it's raining!

Stayed at these apartments for a birthday during Oct half term and were very happy with them. Stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was clean, very spacious and well equipped; even including tea, coffee and milk. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Situated in regeneration area with couple of good restaurants, bars and supermarket around a canal basin and 15-20 mins steady walk to Grassmarket/Royal Mile, though bus stops were just around the corner if you didn't want to walk. Very fussy about where we stay but would definately stay here again.

Had a great stay at the EQ2 apartments. Carolyn at EQ2 was brilliant to deal with and organised a few friends and family groups who had came up for my wedding.
Apartments are a great size, nicely finished and in perfect location for getting into town.
Definitely recommend looking at these apartments as an alternative to hotels!

Stayed here a few times. Clean. Get what you expect. Good city location. Value depends on what time of year and what's on. Beds just about comfortable enough. If you want luxury spend twice as much nearby.

While I personally didn't stay at the Fountain Court EQ2 Apartments, I booked my clients a 2-bedroom Penthouse suite and they were thrilled to have a comfy and spacious apartment with laundry facilities in the middle of their month-long trip through Scotland and England.

In addition, an amazing testimonial to the type of service that Fountain Court provides - I have clients staying at the EQ2 apartments and needed to urgently get a message to them regarding their accommodations on the next stop on their trip. At 3:00 am UK time, I sent an email to the general mailbox and got a reply from the Night Concierge confirming receipt of my email and that he would be delivering the message straight away! Thank you !!!
