Although my stay was mostly lead by the lockdown and the local regulations i still loved my stay. I was extraordinarily welcomed by the staff who helped me throughout my stay. Although at some point my room seemed a bit small, the shared spaces in the flat and the quality of social spaces helped to change my scenery. The only issue is the price of the sets offered to furnish the room or kitchen appliances... Too many towels, a stone bathroom bin, very high quality which is unecessary for a "short" stay... However, if you stay for a while, thats perfect and you won't regret it as it is still very convenient ...! It is perfrectly located with buses 2 minutes away max and it only takes 20 to reach Princes Street by foot. Convenient, warm and new, you'll enjoy your stay !
I have been living here for more than a year now and I would stay for longer. The staff is really amazing, super nice, supportive and always happy to help. The accommodation is located near the city centre (walking distance) with access to the airport by bus and tram. I really like Calton Hill which is 2 minutes walk from the location. The staff also organised (before the pandemic) socials, so that was a good opportunity to meet other students.
Really nice, spacious studios with excellent heating, tap water is sufficiently warm and the water in the shower becomes hot instantly. The place was well cleaned when I first moved in and the hallways and common area are kept clean as well. Lots of storage space with beautiful full-length windows, so the room is always brightly lit. The team tries their best to arrange virtual social activities even in these trying times, and the staff are very friendly and helpful as well. All in all a great experience, would highly recommend renting from them!
The moment I stepped into my room I felt great! Going to study abroad is a big deal and especially during a global pandemic. Having such a nice studio with an amazing view made me feel good and home during the self-isolation. The location is perfect, not near the Uni but a perfect walking distance and beautiful too! David, Lindsay and Brian made me feel welcome and helped me with many queries. They came up with activities during these weird times where you can win some cool stuff! Unfortunately, the gym was not always open due to the restrictions. I think the price quality ratio is okay.
The flats are new and not great value for money. Although, not the closest to the University of Edinburgh, the location was still pretty good with a lot of transport options and many shops in the area. There was little social life with residents and if you wanted friends there, you would have to find them in the city or on campus. The Wi-Fi routinely disconnected and often for a couple of hours, but once a full day. The cell signal is terrible so if there is no wi-fi you are often bored inside or have to go outside to get reception. They did not even offer to refund some of the money if students wanted to leave early because of Covid, although in Scotland, a months notice is all that is required to leave. Furthermore, they reduced their services. Rooms weren't clean on arrival but don't bother cleaning because they will still charge you to do basically nothing. I found food from the last tenant, so they definitely did not clean well. Would not recommend.
