The apartment was MASSIVE for the money. Large rooms and a beautiful living room with wrap-around windows giving views of the channel and Edinburgh castle. Parking is secure, underground, and convenient. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were clean, modern, and everything worked perfectly. Staff was super friendly and helpful, and we got a BIG discount at the restaurant...

Hotel quality bedrooms with the privacy and comfort of a private residence. I could not have been happier with the accommodation. A short walk to Edinburgh castle, supermarket just round the corner and several lovely coffee shops nearby the location was ideal. I won't be looking any further the next time I'm in Edinburgh. I will definitely be back.

We stayed here with friends for a rugby weekend. The apartment was very clean and spacious. There's a fully equipped kitchen but nothing in the fridge, so if you want a cup of tea in the morning, bring supplies. It cost us £432 for 4 of us for 2 nights, so good value. It about a £7 taxi ride into...

Stayed with 3 friends and we had all we needed in the apartment, nice beds, spacious rooms and two bathrooms. Very clean, nice and helpful staff.

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.
