“Great central place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

I only stayed one night here renting a one room apartment that would do for two. Young street is close to George Street: a perfect location. The kitchen and bathroom fittings all seemed new. Everything was really clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with glasses, plates, etc and even had washing up liquid and dish cloth. The shower (no bath) was excellent, good power and heat. Wooden/laminate floor boards in kitchen/bathroom area. Bed was comfortable but room a little too hot for me. I turned down the radiators but they seemed to come on in the morning. I was woken at 8am by the lorry collecting the bottles from the pub next door but didn't hear any noise during the night. There are 2 TVs in the room. There is parking but I didn't use that. 24 hour reception. Would definitely recommend staying here. I booked on booking.com rather than the fountain court website for a better deal (£109 per night instead of £122 per night).

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Stewart Apartments.

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and will share your feedback with the team.

Some of our one bedroom apartments do offer bath and this is on a request basis.

The rates would be the same on our site as other sites, the rate difference would be for the superior one bedroom apartment which is more spacious and has a king bed.

I look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind Regards

I think on the whole this was a great trip to Edinburgh. The apartment was clean and nice, staff very helpful indeed.The apartment does not justify the cost those, especially when you take into account extra for parking. The car park entry via lift was very off putting... make sure you have a small car or you will find the car lift difficult to handle.
Anyway it was still a great apartment and a fantastic position to access the city...have fun we did!

We are currently at te Fountain Court Stewart and agree with all the positive comments posted before. It is nice to have a 'home' with a full kitchen, laundry facilities and a little space to spread out. Being on par pricewise with a 2star hotel makes this the bargain of the decade. In a city with so much to see and do, it's nice to have a home in which to relax rather than just a small room.

We will stay here again on our next trip to Scotland. It is lovely.

Room Tip: I might ask for a room on a higher floor on away from the street. The cars going by the first floor...

Spent 6 nights here. Can't rave enough about my apartment. It had everything you could possibly need, plus little extras; it was large (one bedroom apartment); bedding was very comfortable, room service came every day, location was perfect (2 secs from George St and 15 min walk to Royal Mile). Loved that there was 24 hour reception and the place was very secure. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Had a nice stay here in a 1-bedroom apartment. Apartment was clean and furnished with everything you might need. Staff at reception were warm and happy to help with tourist information and planning. Only downside is that our apartment did smell of cigarettes and that if you sleep with the windows open, you may get woken up early due to outside noises. Other than that, had a great stay here. Location is walking distance to Edinburgh centre.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay.

Please accept my sincere apologies for the smell of smoke in your apartment and the lapse in our usual high Housekeeping standards.

The apartments are non smoking and we monitor this-should guests have smoked in their apartment we do apply a minimum £50 charge.

I am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back.

Kind Regards

We attended the Fringe Festival this year and based on Trip Advisor reviews and ratings I chose this property for our stay. We stayed in the only 2 bedroom apartment. It was nicely appointed although quite small for the price. The location was good, close enough to most of the venues that we could walk to them. This apartment is in the rear of the building and the noise level due to the delivery and sanitation trucks loading and unloading as late as 1 a.m. and as early as 7 a.m. made this a very unpleasant stay. When I expressed my concerns to the front desk they were quickly dismissed.

We stayed here for 3 nights.

We stayed in apartment that has 1 bedroom, 1 living room, 1 bathroom and kitchen. The apartment is specious, very clean, modern design, looks completely renovated. The apartment is very well equipped. It looks like they thought of everything you may need for staying there. All kitchen appliances, washer-dryer for the cloths, all you need for ironing, for cooking, etc. there are 2 TV's: one in the living room, one in the bedroom, both with a lot of channels to choose from, also DVD, etc. Bathroom was very specious, very nicely decorated; the bath is also the shower with a good water supply.

Free wi-fi was very good.

Location is very good: 5 minutes' walk from Princess Street, and pretty close to the castle.

If you arrive with a car and need to use the hotel's parking, it is very important to pay attention to the size of your car. (They say what is the recommended size of the car in the website). Our car was bigger size because the rental company didn't have the car size we ordered, and it was very very hard to get into the parking.

No air condition in the apartment.
The doors will not stay open, entering the room smelled of mold
