Really great location - really close to university and the city centre and the shops. Close to good transport hub. Spacious and comfy room with a nicely decorated kitchen which is also spacious. Great amenities inside the building including a big common room. Really fast internet connection also

Room is far too warm to the point where my computer is overheating from just being turned on. Internet is also poor as I am only able to get internet through ethernet.

I am a PhD student, have lived in Edinburgh for three years, I only ended up here because they were flexible with short term contract. The absolutely worst experience of a hall. The building is stifling hot, it is loud, too loud to open a window, apparently there are common study rooms, but the staff did not bother explaining me where or how to book it. An absolute nightmare is the dark kitchen, not only are there not many lamps, the room is kept in dark grey, to make it even more gloomy. Another person tried desperately to use the old fashioned cooker yesterday, but he ended up with take away

Very good accommodation. Internet is good for browsing the internet but where playing online games, it becomes inconsistant but still good

This is my second year at Arran house, and has now because a true home away from home. The staff are really friendly and attentive, grounds keepers are quick with repairs and technical matters, the spaces provided are great for study or downtime and have used them for both. I'd definitely recommend this halls to students of all years as it's upbeat friendly atmosphere is sure to spread your social circle and nurture you to independentancy. Apart from the price in my opinion being a little high due to inflation of the economy, it's well worth it. I've enjoyed my time at Arran extremely and wouldn't change a thing.

Been an excellent experience so far, everything I needed was already here or made available to me. I wasn't sure what to expect with the global pandemic, but my expectations were exceeded in every way.

I’m currently a first year student at Napier staying in Arran House. I was nervous about moving to halls during the pandemic but the team here are so lovely and make it feel like home. They always have lots of free treats for us at reception. I definitely recommend Arran House if you’re looking for the best halls in Edinburgh.

My one thing that could be a little better is a larger cupboard and fridge in the kitchen and larger desk space. Other than that, this place is absolutely amazing as a first year student living alone for the first time.

The staff at the reception is very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are super modern and clean. We have got many wellbeing-oriented online events/activities that help lots during the pandemic time.

Probably the best student accommodation in Edinburgh! Visit my friends at their halls and it always makes me appreciate Arran House even more. Staff are so nice, they have a really cool common room and it's in such a good location for uni, shops, food everything really! Definitely would recommend.
