Excellent location and great facilities

I stayed on my own so it was great. If there were two people then it would have been quite cosy but for just a few nights perfectly bearable and well worth it for the money and the location.

Great Spot

Suite was a bit tiny but none the less, very nice and quite cozy. Staff was exceptionally courteous and very helpful with directions or advice. They printed out our boarding pass for the airport, plus made an appointment the next day for a reasonable taxi, who was right on time. Price was very good compared to others in area and with location was terrific. I certainly would stay again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Just a half block off the Royal Mile on any of the side streets you could get cheaper restaurants, that were just as nice but less busy. Also the Edinburgh Castle opens at 9:30 so go at that time as not as busy.

Well located but small

Very comfortable bed, though due to lack of space, one side was hard up against the glass partition. Good wardrobe space and best hairdryer I've ever come across in accommodation! Clean and fully functional bathroom. However, only one comfy chair in the small living area, no oven (just microwave). Other residents have mentioned noise, and this was a problem - very noisy arrival in the middle of the night (conversation + noise of trolley suitcases) woke us up. Lovely, helpful staff. All in all, fine for one night but wouldn't want to be staying any longer.

Very nice accomodations

Our experience at Richmond Place Apartments was good. The self-service apartment was very clean and new. The kitchen was well-appointed with cookware, dishes, and utensils. The bathroom was very nice and a good size. The only problem we had was the ventilation. Scotland was experiencing a heat wave at the time, and the only window in the apartment opened just 4-5 inches. As a result, it was very warm and airless in the apartment, compounded by the odor of adhesives that accompany a new place. The location of the apartments was great--just a block off Nicholson St. and 4-5 blocks from the Royal Mile.

Great deal in the heart of the city

The Richmond apartments are amazing. We loved our stay there. They have everything a traveler wants: a great shower, nice bed, laundry room ( we'd been traveling for a while and loved getting clean clothes!), a nice flat screen tv, and great staff. There are convenience stores that are really cheap ( pound savers and pound stretchers) with all you need. It takes maybe 10 min or 15 min to get to the royal mile. That's where everything in Edinburgh is, so you're all set!

Odd Place

These apartments share access with the university dorm. We found some of the students to be quite rude. The apartment was adequate, but the bathroom was located on the entry level, which meant to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night you had to brave a steep set of stairs. The location was within a couple of blocks from some of the main tourist attractions; however, it is a hike from the airport bus shuttle and train station. Not a bad place, unless the fire alarm goes off in the middle of the night and according to the student population, it is a weekly occurrence.

Affordable and very convenient location

I was very happy with this choice. It was much cheaper than a 5 star hotel and even included a kitchen. The location was fantastic.

Nice studio

It's small but quite nice. Equiped with lots of cooking utensils if you want, but it has relatively little service. The biggest plus is that it is quite central - walking distance to many of the major attractions. And the price can be quite affordable. Generally, the apartment is clean, although with a slight odour related to damp.

One night stay over

Appartment was very clean and extremely modern which was excellent. I only stayed one night, for which it was ideal, but I think for a longer stay it might be a bit too small for a couple. However saying that if I was to return, for a short stay again, I would go back. Its really central, short walk from the station and easy access to shops, galleries, museums etc. Ideal for a single person as it felt safe and secure.
