Nice hotel with the comforts of home

Posted 10-Jun-2014
Pros: In a good location in "New Town" in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was clean, comfortable, secure, modern, friendly staff & had a pub on each side of it.
Cons: If the apartment/condo could be better ventilated prior to next guest(s) check-in; and, if the temperature could be adjusted easier.
Location: Good location in "New Town"; within walking distance to Edinburgh Castle; Princes St. shopping & gardens; restaurants; Scott Monument; etc.
We stayed in apartment/condo #2 from Sat, May 31/2014 & checked-out early the morning of Tues, June 3/2014. The hotel was clean, secure & the staff were helpful & friendly. There is someone at the front desk 24 hours, so that was very helpful when we arrived in the evening after driving from Inverness, Scotland all afternoon/evening & also when we had an early check-out to get to the airport for our flight. The apartment/condo was clean, comfortable & modern; the only two negatives were: because it's an apartment/condo & you can cook, it had a very strong (almost over-powering) smell of curry for the first 2 days. The hotel was accommodating when we asked for some air spray, they brought us "Febreze" air freshener to eliminate the odors which seemed to help. This was not a big deal at all. The other negative was it was very warm in the apartment/condo & no matter how much we turned the heat down or, turned it right off & kept the windows open for part of the time it never seemed to cool-down. (We were on the 1st or main floor, so we were not comfortable leaving the windows open while we were out or, sleeping (as people could look right in.) Again, this is not a big deal.

Great hotel in a great location

This apartment complex is located in a quiet street close to all of Edinburgh's attractions. The apartment was comfortable and really well equipped with top-notch furniture and equipment. Everything we could have needed was available in the apartment. All-in-all it is a really good hotel.

Nice apartment hotel, but not for WiFi!!

Posted 30-Dec-2013
Very nice amenities, especially kitchen and shower. If you need reliable WiFi, however, choose elsewhere as the policy is to ban dot com sites and all internet telephony sites (Skype, Face time, Google Talk). Not to mention, the internet was "down" two of the three nights we were there. To check in for our flights on the last day, we had to post up at a coffee shop. Also, if it is your first trip to Edinburgh, you will likely not want to stay this far North. Opt for Old Town, to eliminate a 20+minute windy walk each time you want to see a site. However, the River Leigh walk was convenient, as well as George Street shopping (really nice UK boutiques!) and fancy nightclubs. The room itself was very nice, spacious, warm, and well kept.

Minor points

Posted 23-Dec-2013 on Hotels.com
Very good overall but slight lack of storage for clothes. Kitchen was well equipped but lacked the litte extras like a roll of paper kitchen towels and some paper napkins A shower which could be unhooked for hair washing would be a boon and there was no non slip mat in the bteh beneath the shower ( to be fair the bottom of the bath didnt seem as slippy as some I have stood in!)

Pros: The roominess of the apartment and the amenities
Cons: The mattress needs to be replaced. It is sagging.
Location: This is centrally located in new town Edinburgh, with a fabulous view of Edinburgh Castle just on Castle street. It is close to shops and restaurant.
The Fountain Court Apartments were a wonderful place to stay. We loved the roominess, the amenities, and the awesome shower! Also, there is a heated towel rack to dry your towels after use. The kitchen was wonderful, containing a dishwasher, washer/dryer combo, with tea, coffee, and serving ware. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone going to Edinburgh.
