Home from home
After running about Edinburgh for the day, burning off all that excess energy, you will want somewhere to relax for the night and recharge of the next day. Our self-catered Richmond Place Apartments are absolutely ideal for families looking to stay in the centre of town. With everything from a kitchenette, fridge/freezer, flat screen TV and free WiFi, our apartments allow you and your family to set your own schedule for your trip to the capital. If you would like a break from cooking, there are plenty of great restaurants nearby and you also have the option to add breakfast on to your stay.
Richmond Place Apartments are within easy walking distance of the Royal Mile as well as being well connected by bus to the rest of the city. In fact, the number 300 bus runs directly from Edinburgh Airport to our apartments.
If you would prefer a hotel to self-catering, we have two other recently-refurbished hotels available close by. KM Central is next door to our Richmond Place Apartments, still in the hustle and bustle of the city. Salisbury Green Hotel & Bistro is at the foot of Arthur’s Seat, still within easy walking distance of the city centre and with great bus links this is the perfect location to sit back and relax after a fun filled day with the family.
