We had a very comfortable apartment, with two bedrooms, that accommodated three of us well. Plenty of equipment supplied - cooker, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave - a real home from home. It was also very good value for money. We paid, per head, less than cost of a cramped B&B, and had the run of a whole flat for our money.

I would certainly stay there again.

Trying to find a hotel in Edinburgh when Scotland were playing New Zealand at Rugby was a bit difficult.
H aving had a son at university there for 4years and who had continued to live in Edinburgh for a further 4years meant that we had stayed in many hotels in the city from 5star to much homlier places.
This apartment hotel was a new venture for us. The most significant difference was that in addition to the normal bedroom and bathroom we had a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and very comfortable sitting room, all for an average fo £100 a night plus garaging for our car for £8 per 24hrs.If you have stayed in Edinburgh you will know this is excellent value for mony

Room Tip: We had a top floor apartment which probably gave us finer views of the city.

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.
