Really helpful and friendly staff: 10/10. Apartments in great conditions with good views. Quiet neighbourhood with a Tesco Supermarket really close by open until midnight. We stayed a big group (20 persons) in different apartments and everyone enjoyed it.

Booked 7 off us including a toddler, into these apartments. Cot was already in the rooms. Had forgotten to ask for a high chair, but one appeared as soon as we asked. Underground parking very handy and not expensive at £10 a night. Apartments clean and spacious. Nice touches like providing coffee,tea and milk. Unfortunately the hot water was not...

Also charged £10 per day for parking. Checkout is automatically assumed as 10am if you want to stay longer, its going to cost you....

We stayed in a canal facing apartment for two nights. The apartment was modern and clean. The beds were comfy. Just like staying in a nice hotel but with the advantage of having your own space. The apartment was well equipped and the little extras that you get in a hotel were included eg coffee etc, shampoo, shower gel. Also,...

The apartment was scruffy round the edges. Some scuff marks on the sofa, carpet stained, kitchen basically stocked. Kitchen cabinets badly fitting or peeling, but what you get is a large apartment, excellent bathrooms nice white fluffy towels and a relatively good location. Its certaintly not 5 star but as an alternative to a hotel, more freedom, tesco express 1...

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.
