We stayed here, in a studio apartment, with our two children in the middle of December. The apartment was clean, inexpensive, nicely decorated and well equipped. It's well situated for Holyrood and the Royal Mile. On the downside the room is open plan with the main bed situated on a small balcony overlooking the double sofa bed below so every... More

LOCATION - was great for being a tourist in Edinburgh, as it was about a 10-25 minute walk to everything we wanted to see. CLEAN - I tend to be a stickler about cleanliness and I'm happy to report that at no time did I feel the urge to scrub, dust or vacuum a thing! Ah….very nice. :-D BATHROOM -... More

The room is in a wing of a University dorm, with most of the people in the building being students. The room I stayed in was split-level, with a nice, though small, bathroom with shower on the landing, a nice bedroom area on the upper level, and a small kitchen counter, desk, table with chairs downstairs (with a TV on...

Richmond Place Apartments are a good choice for a stay in Edinburgh if space and location are a priority. We were visiting the university; besides the colleges, food, drink and Holyrood Park were all within easy walking distance. The studio apartment (we were in one for four people) was big enough not to feel cramped in; there was a separate... More

25/07 - 29/07/14. Stayed 4 nights here. The apartment was compact, split over two levels. Located in a large block, don't expect good views from your window. Clean on arrival. Basic, but all necessary self-catering appliances. 24hr porter which was good for our late check-in at midnight. Free wifi. Good location, short walk (10-15mins) from the Royal Mile and Arthur's...

I have to admit I was really quite disappointed with my stay here . The reviews had all been good but I was quite disappointed. Our studio was tiny. It was not technically a studio either as the bedroom was a balcony overlying your lounge and the bed had a glass screen right next to it. If you are scared... More

We have just returned from an overnight stay at Richmond Place Apartments, as a family of 3 we were delighted with the Superior Studio Apartment (Room 116), very modern & impressively clean we would thoroughly recommend this accommodation. Will definitely book in here whenever we return to Edinburgh.

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighbourhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
