Fountain Court Apartments - EQ2

Reviewed January 21, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September 2012 and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartments are centrally located and close to restaurants and the bus station. The layout of the penthouse apartment was quite impressive with beautiful views of the canal. We had a double story with a spacious kitchen, living area and guest bathroom downstairs; and bedrooms and other bathrooms upstairs. It had absolutely everything and more expected from a self catering apartment. Reception was friendly and helpful and it really felt like a home away from home, wonderfully cosy and a pleasure to retire to after a day of rainy sightseeing in Edinburgh.

Nice apartment over looking the canal. We were upgraded to a two bed apartment which had all the facilities you could wish for. Good restaurants, theatres and cinemas not far away. An easy walk to the royal mile and shopping on princess street. Why have a tiny hotel room when you can have a spacious warm and comfortable apartment for the same price.

Only note of caution. There will be building work going on next door over the next few months. They don't seem to work at weekends though.

Room Tip: Room 33 ok if you are booking a one bedroom apartment you will be on the ground floor

We had a very comfortable apartment, with two bedrooms, that accommodated three of us well. Plenty of equipment supplied - cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave - a real home from home. It was also very good value for money. We paid, per head, less than cost of a cramped B&B, and had the run of a whole flat for our money.

I would certainly stay there again.

Trying to find a hotel in Edinburgh when Scotland were playing New Zealand at Rugby was a bit difficult.
H aving had a son at university there for 4years and who had continued to live in Edinburgh for a further 4years meant that we had stayed in many hotels in the city from 5star to much homlier places.
This apartment hotel was a new venture for us. The most significant difference was that in addition to the normal bedroom and bathroom we had a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and very comfortable sitting room, all for an average fo £100 a night plus garaging for our car for £8 per 24hrs.If you have stayed in Edinburgh you will know this is excellent value for mony

Room Tip: We had a top floor apartment which probably gave us finer views of the city.

Stayed at Fountain Court in a 2 bed apartment for a friends birthday party in Edinburgh and so pleased we chose here. Booked on line which was sealess and check in was the same. The apartments are modern, spacious and very clean. We did not take advantage of the well equipped kitchen as only stayed one night but would definitely consider staying here again instead of a hotel when visiting Edinburgh. The bed was soooo comfortable and had good quality linen.

We are a couple but this would be fantastic for families as they could benefit from using all the facilities in the apartment.. The apartment has everything you need including free wi fi. Staff are very friendly and efficient. The view of the Canal is great and this area was very quiet. Apartments are a short taxi ride into town or a good walk if weather is fine!

Highly recommended.

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
