Refurbished

Posted Sep 3, 2016
We have stayed at this hotel many years, through it's other names Royal Garden Apartments and Blue Rainbow, but it got run down and the housekeeping was awful so we didn't stay there last year on our annual visit to the Fringe Festival. Had heard it was taken over and refurbished and decided to try it again. All carpet and furniture is new, nicely decorated and kitchen had been upgraded. I had booked a one bedroom apartment with a large bed but we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom #412. The kitchen and living room were lovely, but the 2 bedrooms were small with small beds, we did not sleep well and had to use one bedroom as a dressing room. There was an ensuite shower room, but you would have to weigh less than 130lbs to get in the shower so we both used the main bathroom. The pluses were the bedroom we used was at the back and quiet from street noise and there was daily housekeeping. The apartments are all very different. Always request a room at the back overlooking the garden if you stay here. Overall the hotel is much improved under it's new ownership.

Thank you for your review. It is great to hear that you had a great overall stay with us. Regarding room service, there are multiple food delivery services we can recommend in Edinburgh. There is no private parking at our apartments but plenty of on-street parking as well as a parking garage nearby. Best wishes

Luxusappartment im Zentrum Edinburghs

Posted Jul 20, 2016
Pros: Geschmackvolle Einrichtung, nicht "von der Stange"
Cons: Leider quietschten einige Türen, was besonders morgens genervt hat.
Location: In der Queenstreet im Herzen Edinburghs, gute Verkehrsanbindung. Unternehmungen: Edinburgh Castle, Zoo, Botanischer Garten, Museen, Galerien, Touren
Das Appartment liegt zentral, nur wenige Hundert Meter vom Bahnhof Weaverley und der Shoppingmeile Princes Street entfernt. Vom Airport fährt die Tram, Haltestellen in kurzer Entfernung. Lage an der Hauptstraße, Schlafzimmer nach hinten. Wir hatten ein sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Appartment, das kaum Wünsche offenließ. Einzig die quietschenden Türen waren nervig. Viele Unternehmungen konnten wir zu Fuß machen, das war sehr angenehm. Empfehlenswerte Appartments. Selbstversorgung ok, Küche gut ausgestattet und Tesco fußläufig in 5 Minuten erreichbar. Sehenswürdigkeiten, die man auch zu Fuß erreicht, sind z.B. Edinburgh Castle, Botanischer Garten, Zoo ( online buchen, Pandas nur per Reservierung zu besichtigen ), Calton Hill, Holyrood Palace, Museen, Galerien ( Appartments liegen gegenüber der Portrait gallery ).

Great facility in the heart of Edinburgh.

Posted Jun 19, 2016
Pros: Location, spaciousness, comfort.
Location: It is in the heart of Edinburgh, and close to major sights. Excellent location! Within walking distance to major historical sights.
Very comfortable. Spacious! Great amenities. Nice to have separate spaces for everyone, with a good gathering space. Very clean, and elegant! Excellent location, but very quiet. Hope to stay here again and again.

Lot's of space.

Posted Jun 11, 2016
Pros: Location, room size, and staff.
Location: Close to Old Town and New Town.
Easily the largest and nicest space for the money we have ever stayed in. Room 101 was a much larger than average one bedroom apartment with all the amenities you need. Excellent staff and a good location. We were really happy with it and will return there when we get the chance. Highly recommended.

Great location, nice facilities, recommended!

My second stay at FCA and I will continue to return. Nicely outfitted apartment. Heating failed (as it did on my first stay) but I picked up how to fix it from my first stay :) Sure it wouldn't have been a problem as the first time they fixed it quickly but this time I knew what to do. Helpful, attentive staff, great to have a laundry on site. Nice kitchen though I didn't use it too much.

Friendly helpful staff with local information

Posted Feb 22, 2016
Pros: Well equipped, clean, modern rooms, tastefully decorated and good facilities.
Cons: Shower sometimes ran cold.
Location: Close to Waverly Station and Princes Street shops and restaurants
We had the 2 bedroom suite with 2 bathrooms and a lounge/dining/kitchen room which was great for a family. The suite is cosy, warm and superbly comfortable. The additional area meant that we could relax in our own space and a TV was provided in each room which was a nice amenity. The kitchen had all the modern conveniences including cleaning stuff and coffee/tea to make a drink upon arrival. We would highly recommend Fountain Court to a family especially as it within walking distance of shops, restaurants and many of the attractions.

Great location in Edinburgh.

Posted Jan 3, 2016
Pros: Good location. Comfortable and quiet apartment.
Very enjoyable visit over the Christmas period. Some minor problems with the apartment were dealt with speedily and efficiently (even on Christmas Day).

The room I stayed in was so clean and comfortable. Kitchen and the utensils are so beneficial for families with babies like us. The room got easily so warm when I used fire in the kitchen.

Comfortable, well appointed, excellently staffed central accommodation. Possibly very slightly bland, but palatial compared to say London studio flats, and a pleasure to contemplate returning to!
