Most helpful review

As it is in the heart of the city it is very convenient for both University and part time job and it is also quite (walkable distance) near to the bank, Grocery stores, bus stop and Princess Street. Moreover, we never had a Covid case in the accomodation. It is very tidy and also update us frequently about the new changing government guidelines. In addition, we have fun and exciting events every week and the staff is very friendly and supportive. For me it's a home away from home.

There's no beating the location of Canal Point when it comes to private student halls! Almost everything you need in town is walking distance, and there is plenty when it comes to food choices around the area. The staff here are friendly, always up for a chat, and super helpful when you need something. They plan events throughout the year to connect everyone, and always have goodies around (think pancakes during pancake day, pizza in the lobby and festive goodies). The accommodation won't just be a roof over your head, here you are also being taken care of by the nicest group of staff any student staying away from home could ask for :)

Excellent Accomodation, the team is helpful and kind. The facilities are very clean, the heating an water systems work always perfectly. The bills are included so one less thing to worry about. Very good webpage and flexible reservation options. During these uncertain covid times it really was my comfortable lifeboat.

A really great and calm accommodation, it looks like a quality hotel. The social spaces are very clean, the staff is really comprehensive and listen to the residents. The parcels are collected for us at the reception. There is no noise within the accommodation or from the streets. It is well situated: not in the city centre, but definitely not far from it (10 minutes by walking).

Has had and I expect will continue to have a nice variety of acitivties for students once those are allowed again. Overall, a really nice place to live.

The staff is super friendly and always helpful. There is a great ambiance and a lot of events with free stuff. I think it has one of the best value for money being really well located, everything is from a walking distance for me. The maintenance and cleaning is also great and it feels very safe having security 24/7. Overall a great accommodation!

Canal point is located in a very prime and safe location and within a walking distance from the meadows and the university of Edinburgh. The rooms are very cleans and spacious. The accommodation is right across the canal so it has beautiful views. The kitchen has all the modern equipment. The people at reception are very friendly and are always there to help and solve any problems you face within few hours.

Canal Point is located in a very quiet area only 15 min away by walk from the University of Edinburgh and 10 min from the main shopping street, Princes Street. Building is very clean and student requests are responded within a couple of days maximum. There are many international students, so it is a great opportunity to learn about different countries and cultures from your flatmates! :))
