You cannot fault the location, as the accommodation is so expensive in Edinburgh, it seemed like a good choice. The room itself was fine and was clean. However, there were holes in the pillow cases and a yellow stain on one of the towels. There was also a disgusting smell coming from the bathroom; it smelt like stale beer or drains, I reported this so hopefully it will be rectified. I also think £150 a night is a bit steep but I guess you pay for location. Apart from the above it had all the facilities you need and the staff were really friendly.

Dear waterfalls_11,

Thank you for your review of our apartments.

I am very disappointed to read that you experienced issues during your stay in particular in your bathroom as those are most certainly not the standard we pride ourselves on and of my expectation. Following your review we have investigated those in full and taken appropriate measures to ensure those will not happen again.

I would be delighted to discuss with you in person, please contact myself direct.

Best wishes,

Robert Kitzinger

I was very impressed with the service and location for the price. I was able to check in early. The room was spotless. Small but very well equipped kitchen. Plenty of clean towels and loo roll. Bed was very comfy. Safe provided in the wardrobe. Iron and ironing board also available. Room was very quiet overnight (I was at the back)

Was able to leave my bag after check out at no extra charge.

I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night on Tuesday 7th Aug. Location to NCP car park is great. Staff on reception are a credit to you, helpful, friendly and very welcoming. Room was absolutely fine, clean etc...the breakfast was lovely and again staff were great. Would recommend for this and for location to the royal mile which is just down the road.

Spent 5 nights at Richmond Place, the location is great, it is good that you can cook, and you have a bathroom in the room, but those who have back problems will not be happy with the bed - it was way too soft, and too small.

Workers were very friendly. Great location in old part of the city for food and shopping. We walked everywhere and found great local places to eat. Room was clean and warm and had a small kitchen. When we grew tired of eating out we went to Tesco, the grocery store around the corner, and bought food to cook.
These apartments were part of the U. Of Edinburgh student housing.
