Richmond Place Apartments are a good choice for a stay in Edinburgh if space and location are a priority. We were visiting the university; besides the colleges, food, drink and Holyrood Park were all within easy walking distance. The studio apartment (we were in one for four people) was big enough not to feel cramped in; there was a separate...

25/07 - 29/07/14. Stayed 4 nights here. The apartment was compact, split over two levels. Located in a large block, don't expect good views from your window. Clean on arrival. Basic, but all necessary self-catering appliances. 24hr porter which was good for our late check-in at midnight. Free wifi. Good location, short walk (10-15mins) from the Royal Mile and Arthur's...

I have to admit I was really quite disappointed with my stay here . The reviews had all been good but I was quite disappointed. Our studio was tiny. It was not technically a studio either as the bedroom was a balcony overlying your lounge and the bed had a glass screen right next to it. If you are scared...

I stayed over at the Richmond Place Apartments at the end of July of 2014. We stayed in apartment 103 Which was perfect in every way. Modern facilities, beautifully cleaned, comfortable bed and a powerful shower, it was the perfect base for a young couple to return to after exploring the city of Edinburgh. Staff were very welcoming which was...

We have just returned from an overnight stay at Richmond Place Apartments, as a family of 3 we were delighted with the Superior Studio Apartment (Room 116), very modern & impressively clean we would thoroughly recommend this accommodation. Will definitely book in here whenever we return to Edinburgh.

Have just returned from these apartments on a 4 night city break and I have to say that my expectations were exceeded. The apartment itself was lovely. Very clean and modern. The bed was very comfortable. The entire apartment was spotless from top to bottom. The location is very convenient. We got the tram from the airport to Princes Street...

Came here with my partner. The apartment was lovely!! But we were woken up at 0630 every morning by the work which is ongoing right below the apartments and outside! This was not explained to us when we booked and the work is apparently ongoing for a further 6 weeks! If I knew of this I wouldn't have stayed! Any...

We have just came back from the Richmond studio Apartments.... I looked at lots of reviews before booking. I found the apartments very easy to find. I looked on google street before arriving. We took the airport bus to Wavery Station and it took roughly 10 minutes to walk too. The apartments are very clean, modern and well worth the...

My aunt and I stayed here last June. This place is ideal for tourists who want good accommodation at a good price; a bit of a walk but not too far from Waverley and close to the Royal Mile. This is on the university grounds, and though some people have reviewed it as noisy, I found it fine and was...

I have just came back from a 2 night stay at Richmond place apartments and can honestly say we were very impressed! We booked a few months in advanced as there was a large group of us (14 females travelling from Sunderland for a hen party) there was a range of people from older aged backpackers, couples and university students....

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighbourhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighbourhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
