Student accommodation close to many fringe events

Posted 28-Aug-2016
Pros: Location & room facilities
Cons: WI-Fi
Location: Close to many fringe events, about 2 minutes from the closest. But very quiet location
Quiet rooms, no outlook from window, very close to lots of events. Having small bedroom upstairs and a separate living room was ideal for us, as was having little kitchen area.

Rustig gelegen appartement.

Posted 21-Aug-2016
Pros: De beschikking over een keukentje en koelkast was erg prettig. Dit geeft meer vrijheid dan een hotel, waar je rekening moet houden met ontbijttijden.
Cons: Het was in het appartement vrij warm, omdat de ramen op slot zaten. Er was geen airco aanwezig.
Location: We zaten midden in de studentenwijk, met veel goedkope resaurants en supermarkten. Het was druk in Edinburgh vanwege het Fringe festival.
Rustig appartement in een soort studentenflat. Op de begane grond is de receptie en de appartementen zijn op de derde verdieping. Het is een klein appartement, maar goed uitgerust. De keuken heeft een kookplaat, magnetron, waterkoker en kookplaat. Er is serviesgoed en kookspullen voor 2 personen. Een eettafel en een bureau. Met een smalle trap ga je naar een vide met een tweepersoonsbed en een kledingkast met kluisje.

Claustrophobic

Posted 21-Jul-2016
Pros: Location was good. There were plenty of food options and good pubs close by and it was not far to walk to major attractions and transport.
Cons: Please renovate the room to match the advertised mezzanine layout at least if you advertise as for 2 people.
Location: Easy walk to many major attractions and plenty of buses close by to the rest of Edinburgh.
I was expecting 'cosy' but room was claustrophobic as the expected mezzanine bed was on the same level as the rest of the room and was jammed up against the wall. We saw there were other rooms on our floor that did have the advertised layout. The only saving grace was the height of the ceiling and the size of the window, although we still couldn't see the sky. Two people could not pass each other anywhere in the room. The room was clean and well fitted out but my husband felt so confined he had to leave the room for a walk outside regularly. The only lounge chair was outside the bathroom door.

Posted 03-Jul-2016
Pros: self-contained laundry facilities close by
Cons: The layout/design of apartments. They need to be more spacious for the amount of furniture and to be comfortable for 2 people to stay in.
Location: close to supermarkets laundry facilities on site 10min walk to Royal Mile
The layout of our apartment wasn't ideal. The apartment width is very narrow, there is not much space for two people to move around and not much space to store luggage. We were constantly in each others way when moving around from the kitchen to bathroom.

Good location, good rooms

Posted 04-Jun-2016
This is located near Holyrood and not far from the Royal Mile. About a 10min walk to the station. The apartment is small, basically a room with a mezzanine floor where your double bed is. Small bathroom with shower. Small sitting area next to the kitchen. What more could you need? Always amazed at how noisy other people are, but that goes for every where you stay.

Convenient location, 15 minutes to the train.

Posted 02-Jun-2016
Pros: 15 minute walk to the train station
Cons: Steps in the unit cracking
Location: You can walk to the Edinburgh castle
Unit is on 2 levels, kitchen well equipped, comfortable bed but accessible only from one side since one side faces the mezzanine.

Noisy hotel if on the main steet

Posted 01-Jun-2016
Pros: Clean, modern, full furnished for your daily needs.
Cons: Add air, portable fan to bring air into the appartment. No air circulation and very hot. Don't dispatch many nights travellers facing main street.
Location: Old Downtown 20 min walk. Cafes, resto, pool, groceries all there.
I would expect based on our reservation date (august for may) and our duration (4 nights) that we would had been dispatch in a more QUIET appartment. Hotel was full, bank holiday week-end. We felt we had been assigned the less desirable appartment on site. Unstead, we were facing main street, noisy bus, trucks, emergency ambulance, bus stop just down below our windows, means people not only talking but screaming drunk waiting at the bus stop or walking on sidewalk for the whole duration of our stay, every night. We could open our windows by only few inches to get air to ventilate the appartment and when we were doing so, we were facing even more all that noise. Uncomfortable and too and even with window close, that noise was disturbing our rest and quality of life all our stay until 0400 am every night. Totally unacceptable!!! Again, if we would had an appartment facing inside garden or minor steet, the experience would had been enjoyable. I would only recommend this place with view, windows facing inside garden or terrasse. A real shame because the staff and accomodation were very nice.

Ok aber zu laut.

Posted 23-May-2016
Die Appartments sind Ok. Zuerst hat man uns eines an der Hauptstraße angeboten genau über einer Bushaltestelle. Hier fragten wir gleich nach einer ruhigeren Variante, welche uns auch mit einem schnippchen Kommentar Gezeigt wurde. Erster Eindruck vom Service daher durchwachsen. Das zweite Zimmer war ok. Die Appartments sind ein wenig hellhörig. Dennoch, die erste Nacht konnten wir gut schlafen. In der zweiten sind wir um 24 Uhr ins Bett, konnten aber nicht schlafen da uns ein immer wiederkehrendes rumpeln wach hielt. Als würde jemand über uns Bowling spielen. Man konnte sogar die Vibrationen spüren. Um 2 Uhr sind wir zum Nachtwächter, dieser meinte das es der Supermarkt unter uns sei. Mit denen haben die Anbieter öfter Probleme. Das Lager ist genau unter den Appartments und die Arbeiten manchmal die Nacht durch. Nicht schlecht wenn man schlafen will. Ohrstöpsel haben da auch nichts mehr gebracht. Am nächsten Tag beschwert und diesmal war ein sehr netter Mann zugegen. Wir bekamen ein Zimmer in einem b&b und angeblich sollten wir auch die Nacht erstattet bekommen. Die Erstattung hat bis heute nicht statt gefunden. Alles in allem also keine schöne Erfahrung und auch mit Abstand die schlechteste Unterkunft auf unserer gesamten Reise.

Basic but very clean

Posted 19-May-2016
Very handy for centre of Edinburgh. We were going to show at Festival Theatre which was only a 5 minute walk. Quite basic but very clean. Would stay here again.
