            Individual guest reviews

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Size of apartment rare, fairly good quality all round.

              Parking charges excessive, kitchen not well enough equipped.

            • Couple
              10.0

              A very nice clean and pleasent apartment block set in a nice location. Would recomend to anyone and would definately stay again.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Apartments were lovley and just what me and friends were looking for. Great location, really nice and modern.

            • Couple
              4.6

              Excellent position for the conference I was attending and close to local shops (Tesco & Sainsbury) for supplies

              Beds were terrible. Very cheap/poor quality mattresses. Awful sleep on the first night in these sagging beds. Whilst they changed our mattresses after the first night (in process of updating all of them), the new mattress were just adequate but still of poor quality; i.e. it was possible to feel the top border of every spring (about 3 inch diameter rings) and I doubt they will stay supportive for very long. These mattresses are something I might expect to find in a 2 star hotel or B&B, or perhaps a poorer 3 star. This alone makes these apartments description as 4 star laughable. Other lesser problems included finding the heating turned off (top temperature outside 13 degrees), and only one service during our 4 night stay (we had to ask for a change of towels on another occasion). Stereo speakers were also poor. There was no decent view from any window (only other peoples windows and a building site) and once the heavy curtains were opened there was nothing stopping all the neighbours looking in. I guess about half the apartments probably have better views but don't expect to have outside light and privacy at the same time. I probably would stay here again but only if I knew the mattresses weren't worn out and I don't know how you could reliably know this before arriving.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Close to everything, nice to stay in an apartment rather than a hotel.

              Our bedroom was right beside an exterior door that was very noisy and busy. People were coming in at all hours so and there was a lot of noise. One night in particular, there was an extremely intoxicated person ringing the door bell and banging on the door.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Location, size, comfort, modern, free upgrade

              Stereo didn't work, no balcony in our apt, 4 star accommodation, not 5.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Was delighted to be upgraded to 3 bedroom apartment, had everything u could want!

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              It was a spacious, beautiful, clean apartment with great views and was close to the city centre.

              There was nothing we did not like. I would recommend, however, that oven gloves are in apartments as we used the oven and had to use a towel to lift the dish out the oven.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              A quiet place with nice view of canal. A super market nearby which is quite convenient. Spacious rooms. We booked a 3-bedroom apartment at a very attractive rate during the peak season of festival. parking space available but with charge.

              Only a staff at the front desk and no one help with the luggage and showing the way to the rooms.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              very clean appartment, space of room is very good.

              staff in reception is rude, location is far from princes street you need 20 minutes walk,however it's worth to stay in that appartment

            • Family with children
              3.2

              The location of the hotel was good less than 30 mins walk to the castle.

              I would not classify EQ2 as a luxury appartment hotel. I was dissapointed with many aspects of my stay including comfort (particularly beds), poor customer service and cleanliness. It is not what you would expect from a 5 star.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Excellent location, spacious, like home away from home. Enjoyed it very much. Very good value for money. I highly recommend this hotel.

            • Family with children
              8.4

              I found the visit very good the staff where helpfull and well informed. The sequre parking was very usfull .

            • Family with children
              8.0

              The ease of booking in and the professional attitude of Beth the Receptionist. The spaciousness of the apartment.

              The outlook into other apartments. Although generally clean the carpets were marked as were the walls which shows a lack of ongoing maintenance.

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              We booked these apartments months ago as it was Edinburgh Fringe time! My friend and I had booked a one bed apartment and we pleased to find we had been given a two bed spacious apartment, not overlooking the canal but it was clean, well equipped and staff were very helpful. Maintenance guy helped resolve the safe problem. We will return and would recommend to couples, families and business men.
