Our location is good and walking we have found can get us just about anywhere. Very close to Edinburgh Castle and to Old and New town. Only downside the rooms are small and... More

Stayed at the Grove Street apartment complex after being 'upgraded' from where I booked in Morrison Street, no idea why but what a result! The apartment was large with 2 bedrooms one double and the other 2 singles. Access was via a modern lift. Beds clean and very comfortable if a little soft, lounge great with good size tv and...

Booked 6 apartments for my daughter's Hen do, for 2 nights. We were upgraded to executive apartments, which meant we had 2 bathrooms, with 2 bedrooms.

The apartments are said to be luxurious, that is to oversell the apartments, they are however quite nice and overall ok, but not luxurious as mentioned in most text about them. Coming from the nordic region, you might even find them a bit shabby. We had a two room apartment, consider what you get, it was somewhat pricy, but then... More

The official rating of this place is 4 stars. However, having travelled quite extensively, I think it is more at a 3 star level. Check-in was quick with no dramas. The reception staff member was lovely. The room setup is fine, with a separate bedroom, lounge, kitchen and bathroom. My bathroom appears to have been renovated fairly recently. The bed... More

The apartment has a kitchen with plenty of appliances, but virtually no cooking equipment. No knives, pans, chopping board, etc. Preparing any sort of meal would be a challenge.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods 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 theatres 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.
