“Very modern and well equipped Apartment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

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

My daughter and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment for two nights in October/November. The apartment was spacious, well kept and had generally good facilities, and the staff were helpful.

The only point I'd make a little different from most previous reviewers is that they're not quite as central as might be thought -- the walk to, say, the Royal Mile isn't that far when it's a clear dry day, but is a bit of a schlep when it's raining!

Stayed at these apartments for a birthday during Oct half term and were very happy with them. Stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was clean, very spacious and well equipped; even including tea, coffee and milk. Reception staff were very helpful and friendly. Situated in regeneration area with couple of good restaurants, bars and supermarket around a canal basin and 15-20 mins steady walk to Grassmarket/Royal Mile, though bus stops were just around the corner if you didn't want to walk. Very fussy about where we stay but would definately stay here again.

Had a great stay at the EQ2 apartments. Carolyn at EQ2 was brilliant to deal with and organised a few friends and family groups who had came up for my wedding.
Apartments are a great size, nicely finished and in perfect location for getting into town.
Definitely recommend looking at these apartments as an alternative to hotels!

Stayed here a few times. Clean. Get what you expect. Good city location. Value depends on what time of year and what's on. Beds just about comfortable enough. If you want luxury spend twice as much nearby.
