Great little apartment in central Edinburgh

The apartments are quite small are quite quirky - it seems to depend strongly one which one you get as to what they are like. I was there for a business trip, and saw 3 different variants. My room was pretty good - a separate bedroom on a mezzanine level with the bathroom, kitchen and "living area" with TV on the lower level. The bed was good, but couldn't actually open the wardrobe while standing in front of it as the space was too small. I also thought only having 2 visits from the cleaners (replacing towels, emptying the bins) in 8 days was not really enough. The wireless was also very flaky and dropped out regularly. Location was brilliant though. A short walk to the royal mile, and in an area full of cafes and bars. A supermarket is minutes from this place too, and Arthurs Seat is not far away. The reception staff were young and very friendly and helpful. So I would be a bit worried about what room I might get, but I would stay again. Its a great Edinburgh base.

Great city location

We stayed there for 3 nights. Staff were very friendly & location was excellent. So close to all the major tourist attractions & night life. We had heard that it could be noisey but we didn't find that to be the case. The one problem we did have was the heat of the apartment.....we turned off all heating the minute we arrived but still found it hard to sleep as the window doesn't open very far. Other than that it was a positive experience :-)

Good holiday location

We enjoyed our stay at Richmond Apartments and found the room to be spotlessly clean, had everything you needed to be able to cook your own meals.Staff were lovely. The only complaint l could make was the bed in out room was not comfortable and probably needed to be renewed along with the pillows, but that was the only thing wrong.

A lovely place to stay. Different

A lovely place to stay. Different and funky and so close to the centre (10 minute stroll to the Royal Mile). Park at Easi Parks in St Leonards St which is only 5 minutes walk.
